2nd Amex approval odds? - Update:Approved

Hey all, 

So Im wondering how accurate the Amex pre-approved offers are... I have 1 year and 2 mo on my oldest account and AAoA is 6 months I currently have the Cash Magnet card that got a SL of $5k and on 4/5 I asked for a CLI which bumped it up to $15k, I also did that for my discover which was bumped from $500 SL to $1.5k on 4/5 to $1.7k Today 5/10... I checked my amex pre approvals today and the blue delta skymiles cards is there, my question is should I apply for the skymiles card (I want to start earning miles because im planning on traveling these coming months) or should I wait out 6 months for the Amex CLI to pass... and see my other offers... Also amex doesn't do HP if I already have a card with them correct? 

I also have 5 Hard Inquires on equifax and 2 on TU, should I app to another card at the same time as the Amex if I were to do it?

Amex 2nd and 3rd Card Approval back to back!!

So I've had my Amex Cash Magnet card for 5 months, and had a SL of $5,000 last month I applied for a CLI and got approved for $15,000. I just applied for a Blue Cash Preferred and got a SL $2,000 and right after applied for a Blue Delta Skymiles card which didn't tell me how much I got approved for... I guess you can say today has been pretty succesful. Still curious on how much I got approved for in the Delta though, not sure if anyone knows how to check that?

If you apply too soon after becoming a first time client, you can get another HP.
