Amex and Citi Double Success

First time poster and long time lurker here. Last night I was pre-approved for amex blue cash preferred with 250 for 1000 spend plus 200 phone bill credit. Well I went for it and was instantly approved for 8700! I was ecstatic because my next closest card was a 2000 cap1 quicksilver. I decided why not and also went for the citi double cash and got a 2000 sl. In one night my total credit went from 2750 to 13450! Some data points for those interested

All three credit scores between 725 and 740 at the time of app. 3 student loans and 2 CC with an AAOA of around 1 year 6 months. Both cards have been open about 8 months. Credit utilization was around 6%. Income listed at 17k.
