Hi folks, So decided to try an app-o-rama with good credit (749, always paid off on time, no deliquent accounts) Here's the order I applied and the outcome so far: Citi Visa AA Platinum - Strange Error Message? Couldn't tell if it even went through? Citi AMEX AA Platinum - Application Pending (used two browser trick on two seperate computers) Chase Hyatt - Application Pending (I have a lot of cards with Chase and expect to horse trade) Chase BA 100k - Application Pending (Again issue as above, but have a good relationship with Chase so far - and I do understand it's risky to apply for two chase personal cards in the same round, but the offers/platinum status are expiring soon) BofA Virgin Atlantic Cardx2 - Application pending on both (I understand from a friend that it is possible to apply for two if you use the rationale that you need to seperate your expenses) Barclays - US Air - Approved - Yay So right now I'm 1 for 7 and not terribly thrilled for it since I don't even have a single account with BofA or Citi. I plan on hitting the reconsideration lines hard and armed with reasons why I need the cards, but since none of the response screens gave me any sort of application reference number, I don't think I can do much until I get some letters in the mail right? Anyone have tactics they recommend rather than just blindly calling in?
