I applied for the AA 50,000 mile bonus yesterday. Fee waived the first year. Spend $3000 in 3 months. The last time I applied for this card was 4 years ago, and I still have the card. After I applied, I got the dreaded we're reviewing your application. Phone rings this morning. It was an 877 # so I didn't pick up. After listening to the message, I called them back. They just wanted to verify my name/address, and social, and talk to me about a credit limit??? Why didn't they just approve me rather than waste my time with this. The call lasted 2 minutes.
