Amex Platinum Approval

I have some expenses coming up, so thought it would be a good time to take the leap and get the Platinum to work towards that SUB.  I was a little sad because I had seen 75K show up on CardMatch a few times a couple months ago and didn't jump on it, so only got the 60K SUB (tried incognito mode too). Anyways, decided to go for it.  Cold apped for it and instantly approved (first AMEX card)!  814 EQ, 816 TU, 791 EX at time of app as I just got my FICO scores on 8 February.  Pretty pumped that I have both the Platinum and Chase Sapphire Reserve!  Already started enrolling in the benefits that the Platinum offers! Now time to go sit in the garden for a bit! Thanks to the Forums for all the knowledge...I've learned a TON from being here!

Amex Platinum NPSL, Chase Freedom Unlimited $19.4K, USAA Rewards Visa $16K, Chase Sapphire Reserve $14K, Capital One Venture $10K, Chase Freedom $4K

Re: Amex Platinum Approval



I'm surprised you weren't able to get the 100k or 75k SUB to populate since it's your first Amex. It's still a solid card as long as you take advantage of the benefits.
