1) You already opened both accounts, so the damage is done. You might as well get the MR bonus on the account at the very least, but if I were you I wouldn't be in any hurry to close it before the AF comes due.
2) 4 new credit card accounts in a week is a lot. When they are all with one lender, that lender is probably more likely to think there is fraudulent activity, but I would still be worried about spooking Chase. If you are still convinced an Amazon card is well suited to you, you can always apply later. My ED currently has an offer for 2X MR at Amazon; check and see if you have one too (if you spend enough at Amazon to warrant the card it may not make up for it, but it's still better than 1X).
Enjoy the new cards!
Thanks yea I appreciate responding in the my other post. Okay thanks I'll hold off on closing to the Gold until the AF comes due.
Thanks for the tip on the Amazon 2x points that is better than 1x for sure. I will hold off on the Amazon card since I already have the Amazon bonus on Amex (I actually prefer using my Amex because I buy a lot of electronics and having all the purchase protection benefits is one of the reason I applied for Amex). Looks like the deal expires sometime in July, do you know if they have the Amazon deal every year? I also noticed
Per my other post If I did decide to apply for the MB Platinum when would be a good time to apply. I was thinking once I met all my MR bonus offers for my other cards. And should I close the Gold card first before applying?
Also will I receive a hard pull for each Amex card? I've read that if you apply on the same day it will only count as one. So I applied to 2 cards on the same day, another the next day and the last approx. 4-5 days.
