Re: Please Review my BCE Plan

I plan to keep applying for BCE after every 3 months till approval. It will be SP on denial because I will be Amex member. That is also one reason I am apping for Green before BCE. Last time I was not aware of this procedure and got denied for BCE (otherwise I should have Zync by now :-( and in hunt of BCE)


Anecdotally this appears to have delayed some people's getting various cards with Amex.  I wouldn't chase the consistent application route such as you're doing honestly.  While I don't know about a year as LS recommends, January is a reasonable bet but I wouldn't app again in April.  Amex anecdotally dislikes "frivolous" applications.
