Since I don't want to spook Amex or anything by having 3 revolvers and a charge card, how would closing my charge card sometime before January affect being able to get approved for the EDP in January so not only that I can take full advantage of backdating and giving a boost to my AAoA but to take advantage of that 15K point sign up bonus. Would it affect my internal score with them negatively?
Someone told me that when that time comes, I could also apply incognito so that Amex doesn't recognize that I'm already a cardholder to further increase my chances of getting the bonus. I was gonna just wait until my Delta card is a year old, moving that limit over to the ED card and closing the Delta card and then upgrading to the EDP when that's old enough but I'd be missing out on the bonus if I did that I think. I just wanted to know someone's take on this. Are the requirements for approval roughly similar just like with the charge cards and how they just differ in annual fee costs?
Edit: Forgot that I still have time to take advantage of a sign up bonus that my current ED card comes with but I'm still curious if closing the Green card would affect my internal score in any way and whether there are any better Amex cards I can consider to replace it and not necessarily the EDP either. I think I'd still find having a backdated card really really useful and much more useful than the points I'm getting now on the Green.
