Thanks for your reply. Let me add some more context and try and clarify.
First, when I mentioned about calling my real question was is this even worthwhile, in other words if you don't have a targeted offer in hand are there times when AMEX Customer Service will give you a better deal than the public offer ? Just wondering whether worth my time.
With regards to the cards on the list, here were my thoughts:
BCP - Groceries (to the $6k) then use PRG for 2x on the remaining (spend up to $12k-$14k groceries annually)
CSP - Dining out, travel and the 7% dividend on points
PRG - Flights and daily spending
SPG - Extra bonus points on the Starwood program plus the plethora of transfer/redemption partners
PLAT - To upgrade the experiences paid for both with hard earned cash and the points/cash back from the other cards. In other words use the Fine Hotels or $200 Airline credit, companion pass etc
So that was my reasoning. Now with that said, today I have no affiliation with an airline or hotel chain but looking thinking that these cards and their transfer partners give me ultimate flexibility.
I also see these cards giving an opportunity (cash back and points) to get traveling again and enjoying some of the perks.
Now with that said, I am a realist and of course the AF's from the ones I list about are going to be high therefore must maximize every one to reap the rewards.
The other questions I had were really about in what order should you apply. The point I was making is that as the PRG & PLAT don't seem to be ground breaking offers right now would the recommendation be do BCP, CSP and maybe SPG now and wait for something better on the PRG/PLAT (whether its both or 1 or the other) or just call up take any offer and get going
I think someone else posted that it is harder getting approved for the revolver cards than the charge ones ?
Thanks again and hope that helps
