Hi all - I'm coming up on my third round of credit card applications and would appreciate your input here. Here's what I have so far. Date Applied Type Appr. Y/N Merchant Expected CC Points 2/15/2013 b y Southwest Visa 50,000 2/15/2013 p y Southwest Visa 50,000 2/15/2013 p y Citi AA Visa Platinum Level 50,000 2/15/2013 b y Chase Ink MC 50,000 5/9/2013 b y Chase Ink Bold 50,000 5/9/2013 p y Chase Sapphire 40,000 5/9/2013 p y Hilton Reserve 2 wknd nights 5/9/2013 p y Amex SPG 25,000 5/9/2013 b y Amex Gold 75,000 5/9/2013 p y Barclay's Luftahansa 50,000 5/9/2013 b n Citi AA Visa 50,000 The Citi AA Visa on 5/9 was declined because I already had too many inquiries. I'm thinking this is a good mix for my next round: US airways MC Club Carlson Chase Freedom (I like the rotating points. I have access to good manufactured spend) Hyatt BA for 50K avios for short trips ORD TO YYZ or BOS on Air Lingus What do you think? Too many, too little. We have a trip to Bangkok planned in March 2014, Utah in November of '13, Florida in December of '13 and we'd like to plan Italy June/July 2014, Costa Rica X mas of 2014. I'm starting to run out of cards to apply for and I'm only 6 months into the game. Does anyone else have this problem? Thanks.
