I made a bone head mistake this morning that I thought I would share. It then occurred to me that a helpful thread in the newbie section could be a mistake thread where people can post there bone head moves so we can all learn from our mistakes. Here's mine: This morning I did my January churn. I usually keep things small and applied for three cards. Amex SPG and I tried to double dip the Citi Hilton Signature card 50k bonus. I was instantly approved for Amex and got pending approval on the Citi HH cards. I called the Citi Application Status line (that was my bone head move) and got the first card approved no problem. I hung up and called again, gave the rep my reference number for the second card and she couldn't find it. She asked for my SSN, she put me on hold, then came back and asked me if I made two apps. I said yes, one was for personal one was for business because you don't have a hilton business card. She told me she couldn't approve me for a second hilton card. She then canceled my application (unbeknownst to me). I thought no problem I'll call the reconsideration line. Called reconsideration line they found my 2nd app with the app number and then (read the notes I'm sure) and asked about two apps. Explained it again and she said shouldn't be a problem (sweet!) She put me on hold and came back and said, oh my bad, looks like I can't approve you for two hilton cards, sorry. I should have called the recon line first, and I know better. I'm not sure why I called app status except for a brain fart I guess. Recon probably would have been able to find my app in the first place with app number and I would not have had to answer questions about both apps and bring attention to it. Oh well, at least I got one HH card.
