App Spree after Amex FR

The other day Amex called and they said they were conducting a FR. I've never been through that so I was kinda bummed for whatever reason. I sent they what they wanted and now I'm just waiting to hear from them. I posted the other day about getting a couple of cards I've been wanting. So I  applied for 

 

Hyatt and was instantly approved for $9000. Then I applied for the Business Marriott and got the dreaded 30 day message, so I moved on cause it's always been a no with the message. Well low and behold I checked today and was approved for $12,000

 

So I  decided to press my luck and applied for the Citi  business American Airlines again instant approval for $7000. Pushed my luck once more and applied for the Costco card and another $6000. You have no idea the state of shock I'm still in over my approvals especially with great credit lines ( for me anyway). So needless to say I'm off to the garden for a while. Anyway I just wanted to share.

You think all the new CCs will help with your AmEx FR?  You can always apply for them AFTER the FR....
