As far as AA after app sprees, I've gotten plenty of new cards and they haven't done any AA on me yet. I mean no one has (knock on wood) at all. I don't get 10 new cards at a time or anything, but Barclays has a reputation for not liking that sort of thing and to some degree so does Amex. My view is, if any of them doesn't like it, hey do what you gotta do, and I will too, but it's a free market and I'm going to utilize that thank you very much, and if you don't care for it, well that's just too bad. We aren't married and this isn't cheating get over yourselves it's business. They are free to drop me at any time and likewise I'm free to do the same with them. That's just how it works and that's why I've diversified, much more so than the different reward offerings.
And yeah to me personally that does seem a bit schizo if you really wanna know my thoughts on it. The utilization in your case is what freaked them out much more than any new accounts. I've gotten plenty since I got CSP and they haven't blinked, but I don't ever go over a very small amount posting either (as in a fraction of a percent which they know by my balance with them I could pay off right now). So I'd guess it's that rather than your spree but that's just my opinion.
