Triple Success! AMEX, Chase, and BoA in 15 minutes!

This is a repost of another thread "so what's my next card" following the saga of my credit journey, but I felt this success story deserved it's own thread.

I've been gardening for 13 months with my discover card and 8 months with my Citi, and CreditKarma said I was at 746. But, my AAoC was only 10 months with these 2 accounts.

 

So, I went out on a limb and applied for the AMEX Blue Sky...pending approval, after a recon I was approved. 

 

Feeling lucky, I immediately applied for Chase Sapphire....instant approval!

 

Not wanting to end my streak, I went over to BoA and applied for their Cash Rewards card...instant approval! (albeit, with a $900 CL).

 

Needless to say, I'm thrilled at all of these prime (at least I consider them to be prime) cards in 15 minutes! Building AAoC anchorage!

 

Thanx for all of your help and guidance!
