JUNE 28, 2011 - Wall Street Journal Rich? Have We Got the Credit Card for You Some of the article high-points (not necessarily the best offers): U.S. credit-card companies mailed 1.4 billion offers for new credit cards in the first quarter of 2011, a 69% jump from 826 million a year earlier The newest crop of offers is aimed mostly at consumers with credit scores of more than 720 on the 850-point scale, or the top third. Citigroup, the third-largest U.S. credit-card issuer, recently offered her a card with no annual fee for the first year and 50,000 frequent-flier miles on AMR Corp.'s American Airlines. J.P. Morgan's Chase unit, already increasingly focused on affluent Americans, recently offered 100,000 frequent-flier miles to customers who qualified for a credit card co-branded with British Airways PLC. Card companies don't typically disclose acceptance data, but Chase was so pleased with the response to an earlier British Airways promotion that the New York bank decided to offer it again. Chase's pitch for its Continental OnePass Plus card includes an immediate offer of 25,000 frequent-flier miles, with the potential for another 10,000 miles after the cardholder charges $25,000 a year. Capital One earlier this month sweetened the pitch on its high-end Venture card, which already was paying double miles on all purchases. New customers now get 25,000 frequent-flier miles when they sign up for the card, up from 10,000 miles.
