A few months ago, I was applied for and was rejected for the Marriott personal card because I had way too many cards open and also because Chase did not want to give me any more credit limits. Chase called me a few days after I applied when I requested them to reduce my credit limit from other card(s) and extend it to the Marriott card. After a minute or two of wait, the rep came on line and said the application has moved higher up and I will know by mail about their decision.

Since then I had applied for and two two personal cards from other issuers.

Fast forward a month ago, I got the IHG offer in mail for the 80K promo after 1K spending. I went ahead and applied for the card and got the usual message that they are reviewing the application and will let me know by mail. After three weeks of waiting, I finally got an email that they have approved the card with a generous credit limit.
