I have a freeze on Experian. Called in, gave them a temporary PIN, and was approved instantly. This was one where I didn't mind an extra hit (a long as I get the points!)

Applied and approved. It prompted a mini-AOR for me...I also picked up Club Carlson Premiere and Chase Sapphire Preferred.

Welcome bonus Not Available...

Regarding the restriction below - do you think this includes Gold Delta Skymiles Personal card, or is it only referencing the Premier Rewards Gold and Amex Gold?

And are we sure the word CONSUMER is only referencing ZYNC? It could also be interpreted to read Consumer Zync, Consumer Green, or Consumer Gold card accounts - right?
"Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have had this product within the last 12 months or any Consumer ZYNC®, Green or Gold Card account within the last 90 days."

Is there anyway to figure out when I closed my PRG card? I do not remember when and I want to make sure I am after the 90 day limit. I believe I am, but I do not want to risk the $450 fee

Got the gold. Already have plat. I think it has been 12 months since I had the gold. For $1k spend and no annual fee, it's worth a shot.

Edit: oh jeez. I am such a dolt. I have a plat card. What a screw up. I read the t&c too quickly.

Sorry I'm dense, but how does private mode help re the application? Is it a security thing to prevent one's SS # being recorded unnecessarily? But if so, I though some posts said that it wasn't necessary to enter the SS #.

Thanks for any advice.

Yes, ALL consumer cards. Consumer Zync, Consumer Green, Consumer Gold. The Delta cards are separate from Membership Rewards cards. As are the SPG cards.

As are business cards from consumer cards.

People were having issues with getting an unavailable/system busy message (i got it to begin with). Some cleared their cookies, some used private mode to get around it.

Applied and approved for both. I'm a bit suspect of the 100% approval rate, but let's see what happens!

Will I be eligible for the AMEX Platinum card 100K rewards if I applied to an AMEX Hilton HHonors card recently?

Not 100% approval rate sorry LOL. DW declined instantly because of the December massive AOR. We haven't reconned yet, but just wanted to post this since everyone is getting suspect with the approval rate.

Also many may not be posting rejections here. Offer looks seriously awesome. I am going to apply soon.
