    Today was 65 degrees...and raining ALL day. What better time to apply for credit cards! Today's CHURN has been brought to you by...the letter A--as in awesome!
    results:

    Bank of America Alaska Airlines Signature VISA card 25,000 miles-----pending approval
    Barclaycards Arrival World Mastercard 40,000 points--Instantly Approved!!
    Chase Sapphire Preferred VISA card 40,000 points--- pending approval
    CITIBANK AAdvantage VISA Card 50,000 miles -- Instantly Approved!!

    Looks like Monday's tasks are to call the reconsideration lines and push those pending approvals to approved approvals. :D

    Just curious: What will be the size of your "manufactured spend" and how long will you have to meet the required spend if you got a nod for all four?

    Good mix ... I'd also thrown in a US Bank Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa Signature Card and an AMEX card, preferably the SPG one.

    Keep us posted on the pending status! :)

    Alaska is instant - no spend required, the rest total $9k in 3-4 months. That could be accomplished in 2 months with 1 bluebird account, without any non-manufactured spend, and even faster if legit spend were included.

    Trying to call Chase, but none of my old reconsideration lines are working....Did they ax them due to the sheer numbers of applicants from the INK promo??

    I applied for the BofA Alaska card and also received instant approval but my bonus totaled 30K on approval so I am guessing YMMV...

    that's correct...the one offer you applied for was for 30K....25K after approval, and 5000 for being a loyal customer. The one I applied for is a $100 statement credit after spending $1000 within 3 mths....which will offset the annual fee of $75.00...which gives me $25.00 in my pocket....AND 25,000 miles.

    I called 800-453-9719 today to try and push my ink card through, but they told me that they are overflowing with applications and that they would let me know by mail sometime between two weeks and 30 days.

    it was a targeted offer that came in an email with an RSVP confirmation. I believe others also are getting them....so if you haven't changed your preferences in your AAdvantage account to receive promotional emails, you may want to do so.
