Did they simply ask for a 20k bonus match, not citing "another offer"? My latest app is a 65k/$4k card, and I was wondering if I should try for a 20k match, even though I have never seen an 85k mile offer.

On a related note, after four consecutive applications that went straight to pending (later approved via phone), today's was approved immediately. About a minute later, I received an e-mail stating "We're reviewing your application submitted on 12/12/2017 and will get back to you within 7-10 days." Weird.
