Yesterday I applied for a Chase Sapphire Preferred card and got approved. Then applied for an AMEX Clear and got something like "...decision is in the mail ..." which usually translates to denied.
I have a 750+, six figure household income and a credit history going back 14 years. I've even had their charge cards for a few years (none now). Somehow the AMEX credit card seems to elude me ... if you know what I am doing wrong please let me know.
