I read these forums a lot but haven't contributed much, so I thought I'd share my experience with Amex. They kept sending me offers for a $150 signup bonus for Blue Cash Everyday (they usually do $100 for BCE and $150 for BCP with the annual fee), but I was concerned I wouldn't be approved. I'm a recent college grad and only had one other credit card with a low limit, so I wasn't sure if I should risk the inquiry and apply. I figured since I had a well-paying full-time job I might as well apply. Well, what do you know... they approved me for $10k!
They did scare me with it though. I got the dreaded "application in review" message when I applied online, and I when I called twice to check up on it they could only say "another department is handling it and they will get in touch with you." I figured that was bad news, but then I got a call from a very nice lady asking me to verify that I had submitted the application and I was approved on the spot.
The only thing that bugs me is I got an offer the next morning for 30,000 bonus miles on Blue Sky in the mail, but whatever...
