Re: Just Got AMEX card approved!!!!

i got the delta platinum at 2k last week, cli request on activation got a 7-10 day response (denial)
i got the hilton hhonors at 2k this week, cli request on activation got a 7-10 day response (denial)
 
i am happy with these limits, as they are the highest i have ever had.
 
i was hoping for 5k on at least one, but it looks like i will have to wait until january '08 when my last 7 baddies will all have fallen off....i sure as heck aint hittin' that thar' luv button again until then.

I got approved for the Delta (Instant Approval - I was surprised)... did a CLI on activation.. got a 3k limit.. and then converted the card right after to the Blue Cash...

Thanks so confused, that score gives me something to look forward to Smiley Very Happy. I will be there soon. I have a judgment (CC) that I forgot about on EX and EQ. It is due to fall off at the beginnig of next year, but I know that I will not get approved for any cards that pull these two accounts until then.

Others have been approved with charge offs / collections... just appears BK is an auto-denial with AMEX.
