I think you're right (and congrats on the Amex). One of my part-time employees is a bank executive with Citibank and he has been telling me that Citi is all about "relationships," of the variety that you are alluding to. I wonder if there is a substantial difference between your FICO scores between now and last August. Since scores fluctuate wildly, maybe that had something to do with it. I know that the first time I applied for a Macy's card, I was turned down. Six months later I applied, and voila! Got the card. My scores were not that different between the time I first applied and the second, but they were somewhat higher. I didn't question it.
