AMEX PRG 50k! kdm is going to slap me!

I tried for a while between several different PCs and browsers (Chrome, Firefox, IE11 on two computers incognito and normal) but only was getting the normal offer, so I tried that encrypted browser. For some reason it first loaded in German, but I relaunched and tried again.

 

BOOM 50k. Decided to go ahead and grab it so I have something to be earning a bonus on during my foreign trip in a few weeks, since I have/will have met all the sign-up spend already and this thing will go nicely with the 100k MR from Platinum.

 

Instant approval in the browser after about 10 seconds, but oddly 5 seconds in I got an email saying thank you, we need more time. At 10 seconds the "you are approved!" email followed it.

 

Decided to use this HP for a twofer, so I applied for the Everday 25k mailer offer they've been sending me but that one is still pending review (applied about 2-3 minutes later after PRG approval). My guess is because it's with fraud due to back to back apps, or maybe because PRG came in on a different IP address.

 

Should I just call their Indian customer service tonight for the ED app?

Congrats..  Guessing the ED is approved just delayed to possible fraud concerns.  Call in today or you can wait it out.. Your choice.  Enjoy the MR's

Congrats on your approval for the PRG. 

My understanding with the second app is that you can no longer app for two cards in the same day - they make you wait it out for five days.  So you should have a decision on the card in the next five days.  This happened to me in May and when I called they told me that they weren't doing that anymore...FWIW, I've seen it noted that others have encountered the same.

ooh I didn't see that... was thinking you could still app for 1 charge and 1 credit together. Oh well... the only reason they might not approve it is so many new accounts but they seem to like me so I'm going to think positive.
