Thanks Member! Much appreciated. I always have this fear at the back of my mind that these lenders could pull the kinds of stuff Barclays does when they see people get new accounts in a short period of time even though I've also heard that it doesn't affect everyone who gets cards with them and I also fear having too much available credit and getting denied for stuff for that reason in the future. I mean I've had plenty of accounts already as well as inquiries and not one of my cards has been closed because of AA or anything like that so I'm not expecting anything that drastic to happen. Also as you've noticed, the minute I get better cards, I close the ones that I don't need anymore or ones that have served their purpose pretty much so that doesn't happen.
There was this one person over at MyFico that said that one of his friends got instantly approved for the Freedom but after she got the card and tried activating it, they had already closed it. Thankfully my app went through all that verification stuff and the analysts clearly looked at my CR so there shouldn't be a problem there in the long run.
