Digging up a little ancient history here...
I applied for the BCE yesterday and was instantly approved. They definitely pulled EX but not TU. I don't know about EQ yet.
I checked today and the limit is $6k, which is more than the $3k or $4k I was expecting. Now that I've passed the $5k mark, perhaps I can look forward to throwing out junk mail ads for nicer cards now.
2.5 months of an Amex charge card and 9 months of total credit history may be on the short side for getting an Amex credit card. I'm sure having investments helped, as well as using the card pretty regularly - averaging about 5 swipes a week. I also paid in full every 4 or 5 days.
Edit: I don't know the APR, either, so I might not have gotten the best available terms.
Very useful: SchwabPlat, CSP, IHG, Costco (was AA Plat), Freedom, SPG
Somewhat useful: Discover, ED (was EDP), BCE, Hyatt
Plan to PC: Prestige to DC
SD with activity alerts, might close: Arrival and Brooks Bros
Might add: Proper business card, CSR, Ritz, Delta Gold, First Tech, BofA Travel PH
