I haven't been declined for a card in years but I've clearly peaked. In Jan/14 Citi approved me for the Exec/AAdv at $19k, last month they approved the AT&T with a $8.5k. It could be several factors but my FICO is the same (or better) but my utilization is higher with a few BTs, I have a car note and it is the second card from Citi.
On the other hand, years ago the Marriott started at $12k and three years later CSP came in at $20k.
Oh I dislike the new signature policy, too, and agree vertical space is not saved. I was just saying how I had coped with it. My signature may be incomprehensible to some people, but it's accurate for those that can decipher it.
Do AT&T cards often have CLs significantly higher than $8.5k?
