Remember way back when, when I got all up in a tizzy over some fees Chase threw at me? Yeah, I have realized the err in my ways. I just got instant approval for the BA 100k Chase card. I just happened to see on Rick's blog that today is the last day to apply, and my miles|points senses started tingling. Lesson learned: I am addicted to miles, and no matter how upset I get at the little mistakes I make, I will be very much involved in this game for a long time. And for a newbie like me, 100k is a HUGE amount! It's going to take my total up to almost 400k across all programs. Anyhow, thanks for all the wise words on my last post, and thanks for all the fun in this forum that has irrefragably pulled me back into this game which I love so much.
