ETA: And I'm not talking about the super-merging that appears elsewhere.

Sorry for missing this question earlier. It's a really good question that doesn't have a good answer yet. We're discussing things like trimming the forum tree and radically changing firm structure.

We also had a discussion about using tech to make things like this more visible and searchable on the front page.

Most definitely a work in progress but we knew for starters we need to make ourselves more accessible to people with questions who may not like using a forum.

I think it's safe to say we're not in the super-merging business. 🙂

I don't have much to say, but you can usually find me saying it here.

Hi. I'm looking for a little bit of advice for my next card apps.

Right now, I have 6 cards. 4 of which were opened this year.
[LIST=1]
[*]Citi Diamond Select (8/2009)
[*]Discover IT (12/2009)
[*]Chase Freedom Unlimited (12/2015, pc from slate)
[*]Chase Freedom (12/2015)
[*]Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select (1/2016)
[*]Chase Sapphire Preferred (6/2016)
[/list]

Also, added as an AU on my parent's 30 yo discover card.

So, I'm at 4/24, per chase's rules.
I currently have about 120k UR. Looking to build that more. Need at least 160k for a trip I'm planning this summer.

I applied for the Sapphire Reserve and Ink + biz card on 8/23/16. Was denied for both. Reasons being too many recent requests for credit. On recon call, they mentioned that I had recently requested a credit limit increase on my freedom unlimited and that I had just opened the sapphire preferred. They also mentioned the high number of HPs (11) on my equifax, although most of these are from non-CC sources (new verizon account, new car paid cash, new cox account, federal medical school student loans, then 2 HP for CSP and Ink)

My next application was going to be for the Sapphire Reserve and Ink + biz card again as it has been 90d since opening the CSP. My logic is that if I can't get both, I'd rather the Ink because of the vast manufactured spending potential with that card. Even though the bonus is less, the long-term value is much greater.

My questions are:

[LIST=1]
[*]at 4/24, is it possible to get both CSR and Ink by applying same day?
[*]when is it safe to reapply? it's been 45 days since last denial, 150d since CSP opened
[/LIST]

Hello..I am looking for some suggestions on what to do..I have the Amex Gold and thinking of jumping in on this deal for Business Gold for the miles. We do have a business. Can it be used for all kinds of purchases or just business related? What should I do with personal Amex Gold? Hate to keep paying the annual fee for 2 amex. Can the business card totally replace the personal card? Thank you!

iNK and SPG is my 2 choices, depends on which airline you want to fly.

Chase ask me once about why so many cards, my reply it was for the perks..

As for an increase in CL, just lower another card, I am only going to charge so much, and each month it is on autopay..

If you want to go over the 5/24 develope a banking relationship and you will have no problem.

Have a ton of Chase points and was using United but I am traveling on a route that is mainly Alaska. It looks like my only way in to the one world alliance from chase is via british airways. But they don't seem to connect to alaska or to very many American flights via the Avios point system. I keep thinking I am missing something. I was thinking that the individual airline awards programs would be better than going through the chase ur. Can anyone help make these chase points useful on American and Alaska?

Cheers,

MM

If the awards are available at the Saver level from Alaska Airlines then they typically (but not always) are also available to partners, including BA and AA. If the awards are only showing at "Standard" or elevated rates then typically they do not pass through to partners.

Hey Ed, just wondering if there is a way to post the Home For The Holidays donation link without having ten posts on IF first. One down 🙂

I bought her a birthday cake for her birthday the first year we were married, she told me to buy her lottery tickets.

Winning it would change her life, many years later neither if us has won the lottery,

We both consider ourself lucky.

She came to this country with $900.00 and 2 suit cases.
we consider everyday Christmas..:D

That's a really tough ask. Rome us traditionally a very busy route in the warmer months. Which airline are you flying? Do you have elite status?
