To be honest, that's the ONLY reason I have not applied for it. I could use it, and it would only increase my AAoA. I just do not dare to provoke the wrath of the underwriters if there is a chance I'm going to buy this year. If it wasn't for that I'd have already done it. But now I'll see what's out there and consider what to do. When that's done I'll revisit the card and likely go for it.
so you build a garden first, then build a house on top of the garden?
