Since I was stupid for not applying for the bonus offer for PRG, I applied for a Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select 50k bonus with the intentions of not getting it and they approved me for 5k limit... So that's pretty sweet because I was planning on applying for that later because when I fly it's normally with American.
It can certainly make sense to get a card with free checked bags if you fly one airline a lot and don't have another card that gives an airline extras credit (like PRG will soon have) or a general travel credit (like Ritz has).
I think you mean that you thought your odds of getting it were slim. I should advise you against applying for a card when you expect to be denied, but I have to admit I did that in the case of Sallie Mae. It's still not ideal, though.
Just be sure to keep track of all the minimum spending requirements for the three new cards.
