frustratingly patiently waiting I have more results from my last round of cards and I am pleased to say I am still 100% approved on all cards (and I have had almost all of them). I am going to, from now on, really try to fill in MY SSN’s on all apps! As an update I have now been approved for my Chase SW Air card and did not even have to move lines around! I have also, after 10 full days, the results from US Bank and it is:
This really is a big data point for me as every single US Bank card attempt I have done in the past I first got a NO and then I had to call to get reconsidered and then approved – that is before I froze my ARS & IDA accounts!
But what shall Lisa go for next (we off-set our rounds by a month or so to spread out spend). Last round Barclay’s told my Lisa NO – too short a time with Barclay’s. I am tempted to have her try again just because it is the only NO she has had and it really, really irks me. I have a month to think on this. The thing is, I really want the card for her; especially after I got the card under the old 20k offer compared to the current 40,000 point Barclays Arrival card offer.
The next one, again a risk, is the 50,000 Avois Chase British Air card. Lisa did get the 100,000 offer a while back, but has not had the card for some time now. She was successful getting the Priority Club, err, IHG card again after many years, but it may not be enough time has passed for this to work with the British Air card again. We may have to try just for a data point for me and for readers since I run a blog otherwise I would wait longer before trying again. Thinking – still thinking.
Then we have the US Bank 85,000 point Club Carlson. I will be sure this week to freeze her ARS & IDA before she applies. She has only one FlexPerks so it should be simple. Well as simple as US Bank can ever get.
Lastly we have the 30,000 point Alaska card (not my link). She does not have an Alaska card, but even if she did that would not matter as you can get 2 or more of these cards from all reports.
So this is her plan for now. I will pick at least 3 of these four and then have to see what of the first two risks I want to attempt. What do you readers think she should do – fight with Barclay’s again – or – see if enough time has passed with Chase that they will award the points again? – René
