  1. Darius, I love your site. Thanks for the info you provide!
    Do you think that the good Bank of America—-Virgin Atlantic card offer for …… I believe it was 45,000 miles…….. will come back again soon? I just missed applying in September. I won’t bite on the present 25,000 miles offer……I’m spoiled!

    • @Rahul – I don’t buy or sell miles and don’t recommend that since it is against most programs terms. Each Southwest points is worth 1.67 cents towards flights, Chase Ultimate Rewards is 1.25 cents towards travel using their portal, Citi Thank You points are worth ~1.33 cents if you have the Thank You Premier card. That said, you could get more value by transferring Chase Ultimate Rewards and AMEX MR to airline or hotel partners.

      @Rosemarie – If you’re denied you can reapply and get the bonus if approved.

      @Jooyoung – The links in the Hot Deals tab go to the 50,000 point offer even though the application page doesn’t mention 50,000 points.

      @Manish – The links to the Citi AA cards are in this post above. You can’t get all 3 AA cards at the same time, but could get 2 personal cards now and 1 business card later on. For AMEX, I don’t have personal experience, but suspect they mean since the cancellation date. Do let us know if you find out otherwise.

      @Michael H. – Thanks for reading! I don’t have inside information, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see it come back.

  2. 1) Is the chase ink/bold 5% back transaction for buying VR cards at OD a done deal, cannot be used anymore?

    2) Anyway one can still use chase ink/bold for VR card at any other store? any suggestions of how to do it?

    3) If VR card is bought at cvs/walgreens, does chas eink/bold work for 5% CB value? if not, which other card in your knowledge would give best return at 5 to 6% CB in reward terms/value?

    4) How does BB account itself earn points? Can u specify/explain? and pls. excuse my ignorance…

  3. FYI…I believe that Chase INK Bold also comes with No Foreign Transaction Fee just as INK Plus. Please verify.
    As you predicted (amazingly), Chase have lowered the required spending on INK Bold for the 50,000 URP bonus. My husband just applied even though he got Hyatt card less than two (almost two) months ago since we don’t know how long they run this promo. He has four personal cards: Freedom, Sapphire, UA and Hyatt. Do you think he has a chance to get INK Bold approved since this is the only business card he ever applied with Chase?

    • @mark rivera – Office Depot doesn’t sell Vanilla Reloads anymore, but you can buy gift cards from there and use elsewhere. You don’t earn points when you use Bluebird, but only when you load it with a Vanilla Reload bought with a credit card. See this post for more details.

      @Emily – That’s true – both the Ink Bold and Ink Plus don’t have foreign transaction fees. He should be able to get approved, and I suspect this promotion will last for at least a month, so no rush to get the card.

  4. Dear Daraius & Emily,

    My husband and I were drawn to your website through a relative who is a follower of your blog & website. We are very much interested to join the miles and points club. Now that we are looking at the above choices of cards, it is quite overwhelming and do not know where to start. Between my husband and myself + 3 young ones, we can easily fall into a $5,000 bill per month (mortgage, car payment, insurance, internet, cellphone, etc.) category so meeting the required minimum spending is not a problem. My husband has also an existing business but not currently active as he wants it to be due to financial demand. Where do we start? Chase Ink Plus (Business) for him and Chase Ink Bold for me? And split the S5,000/month bill between these 2 cards? or go for 2-browser trick? Thank you.

  5. Btw, our ultimate goal is to earn miles to travel to East Asia (for a family of 5) during summer of 2013 to visit both our parents.

  6. @ Daraius….. wanted to share something about recent and some old skeletons, app-o-rama, i kind of posted little bit of it in your other post. So the day Ink decreased the Min spending, next morning I did my last app-o-rama for the year,
    Ink Plus.. 50K approved
    Amex Buz Gold 75K approved
    AA buz 50 K approved
    BOA Hawaiian 30K denied
    Little to the past, I had two credit card when I started college in 2000 1st MBNA for $1500 then BOA for $1500 (BOA bought MBNA), I defaulted both CC around 2002 paid tuition and was not able to pay back as I was still in School, since then by 2004 BOA wrote this of as bad debt, by 2006 by credit score was 550, but by 2010 it was 720, as I paid of some bad debt the BOA CC got expunged from the report after 7 yr in report. Well long story short, when I called the reconsideration line, BOA denied because I defaulted something before even though its not there in my credit report. Just an heads up for ppl if defaulted old account with BOA, even though if it does not show up on credit report, they can deny.

  7. Good day, D.
    Your Chase Sapphire Preferred MasterCard link does not work anymore, can you update it?
    I went under mastercard.com and found the link but I want to use yours so you can get referral point.
    Thanks.

  8. Hi there – does the offer for 50K miles for Citi AA Business Visa still work? The application on your link doesn’t state how many miles and what other benefits I will receive for applying. The Citi Cards website doesn’t even offer this credit card (only Citi AA Business Mastercard for 30K miles). If this offer still works, how do I prove to Citi what offer I signed up for in case I don’t get the 50K miles and other added benefits listed? Sorry if you’ve already responded to this question before. Just wanted to make sure I have the latest offer before I apply. Thanks for your help!

    • @ES – Thanks for reading! 5 tickets on 1 flight will be hard to get. It costs ~70K in coach and ~110K in business class for a return ticket. American Airlines and United both allow you to have 1 -way awards, so a mixture of United and American Airlines cards is the best. You’d need 175K miles for 5 1-way awards. If you and your husband get 2 Citi cards each, that is 200K miles between the 2 of you. And between the Chase Ultimate Rewards cards (Chase Sapphire Preferred, Ink Bold, Ink Plus etc.which transfer to United) & the Chase United card you can get another 175K United miles. Good luck and be sure you can meet the minimum spending requirement before applying.

      @adnan – Thanks for sharing. The bank which wrote off your debt has a long memory – even though it may not appear to other banks when they review your credit history.

      @APT – Thanks for thinking of me, but I don’t get a link to the Chase Sapphire Preferred MasterCard. I update the link from the MasterCard site, but it keeps on expiring after a few days.

      @Julia – It still works based on the comments. However, it is an expired offer, but folks have been able to submit the application and get approved for the card.

  10. The SW business cards are no longer offered.

  11. Daraius,

    I just got my Amex and Visa American Citi credit cards via your double browser trick (thanks!) and am plotting my spending to get the full 100k miles. I typically manage my accounts online through Citi but I am a bit leery of registering both of them on their website. I have churned many cards but have only had one AA Citi card at a time in the past. Do you see any issue with registering them both online? What do you do? Thanks for the insight.

  13. Hi,

    How do you get around this?

    Employee Number
    Please enter your 2-character Airline Code followed by your Employee Badge number (no spaces). Only employees of US Airways and US Airways wholly-owned subsidiaries are eligible.

    I can’t get bypass this – is this the end of the game for Barclays US Airways Mastercard?

    P

  14. Just got both Citi AA cards through the two-browser trick. Offer for 50,000 miles after $2,500 still works.

  15. Dear Daraius,

    I am a newbie at this and have completed only one churn, which was about this time last year. Since then I have become a frequent visitor of your website and have learned a ton, but still unsure of a few things. Last year I signed up for the Citi AA Personal Card (Amex), US Airways Personal Mastercard, and the Southwest Personal Visa Card. If I was smarter back then, I would have tried the double window trick for the Citi AA card. I was wondering if you could help me with my next churn. My credit score is currently between 690-710. I was looking into the British Airways card with 100k miles, the Priority Club card, and maybe the Southwest and Citi AA business cards. If I hurry I can get the companion pass, but it will be close! Also, all 3 cards will be charging me the annual fee on December 5th. Should I apply for the new cards and then cancel my old cards? Or maybe cancel the old ones first and then apply? Should I only apply to one Chase card per churn? So confused! Any help would be much appreciated!!!!

    • @Jeff – Thanks for confirming!

      @Julia – It will be very close for the Companion Pass and you have to complete the spending at least 8 to 10 days before your statement closes. The BA card is good for short distance AA flights, but charges high surcharges for flights on BA or most other partner airlines. I’d study it closely before applying. You usually can get 1 Chase business and 1 Chase personal card at the same time. If you are applying for another Southwest personal card and you already have a Southwest personal card it could be better to close the card and then reapply for the different version. I wouldn’t do 3 Chase cards at a time. It also helps if you have a goal where you’d like to use your miles and points. Please email me and we can go back-and-forth.

  16. Hey Daraius,

    I just got an offer in the mail for the American Express Gold Card with 25000 points after $1000 spent. I was just about to apply for the Starwood Preferred Card and now I’m not sure what to do. Getting both would be nice, but if not I would still rather have the Starwood Card. I applied for the Starwood Card back in February, but was unsuccessful (though I never called the reconsideration line). So here are my questions:

    1)With a 690 Credit Rating, is it possible to get the Starwood card?
    2) Is it possible to get both at the same time?
    3) Are these offers from American Express with the RSVP #’s usually a guarantee to be accepted for the card?

    Thanks in Advanced, Daraius! Love what you are doing with your site!

  17. I just applied and got approved for the Citi AA Personal Visa. None of the approval page or email mentioned anything about the 50,000 sign up miles. Should I wait until the welcome kit show up or should I start making phone call right away? Thanks Daraius.

  18. Hi,

    1) Is the ink blue offer open for all? what is back number/reconsideration line no. to speak to, if initially rejected (no to speak directly to credit lender/analyst??)

    2) is VR deal/cards still open? How can i use my Ink card to buy VR cards which i can then use to fund BB account, and get 3.5%? Can you email me at [email protected] with complete details? TIA.

    3) LASTLY, no intention to SPAM, but i get sony laptops/all sony products at 15% corporate discount and would like to help others get same savings……only to those who are sony fan’s or genuinely interested in Sony laptops/sony products. Email me for further questions………just wanted to share it here, where everyone is sharing good deals/savings for others to benefit from….again not a SPAM/SCAM…

    • @Tahir – The regular offer for the AMEX Premier Rewards Gold is 25,000 points so I wouldn’t go out of my way to apply for it. I can’t comment specifically, but usually folks should have a score above 700 before applying for miles and points cards, though some folks do get approved with 690 scores. That said, it could be better to see why you were denied and work on improving your score.

      Targeted offers don’t gurantee that you’ll be approved, since they do pull your credit score and report when you apply for the card. I’d apply for only 1 – especially since you were denied the last time.

      @OooO – You can confirm the bonus when you call to activate the card.

      @Rahul – Not sure which card you mean by the Ink “Blue” (They all have a blue-ish tinge!) but the 50K offer is open to all. The reconsideration number is in this post.
      See this post for more details on getting 3.3X points with the Ink cards and Vanilla Reloads, but your miles may vary since some CVS stores don’t accept gift cards for Vanilla Reload purchases.

  19. I applied Hilton Amex on November 29, 2012. Amex pulled my Experian. If I apply Citi Amex now, will Amex accept my application? What is the time frame for applying between each amex credit card?

  20. Does the 2 brower trick still work for 1 personal citi and 1 personal amex for 100,000 AA miles? I am planning to apply 2 cards soon.

  21. I applied 1 visa and 1 amex today. My visa is approved. However, I receive this for my amex.

    Application Received
    We have received your application and further processing is required at this time. We will contact you within a week via email regarding our decision. Thank you for requesting a Citi Select® / AAdvantage® American Express® card.

    Does it mean that my amex will not be qualify? Do I need to call them? or I need to wait them calling me?

  22. If I call, do I use citi phone number or amex phone number?

  23. and what questions should I aks? sorry for posting twice on another two brower trick topic.

  24. oh never mind, just called, then my amex aa approved ^_^ for 50,000 point for 2,500$ spending for 4 months. I used the links above.

  25. Is there any credit card that can transfer its points to American Airlines?

  26. Just curious, what happens if you apply for the same Chase card that you already have received a bonus for in the recent past? Do they usually deny you or do they approve you with no new bonus? Thanks.

  27. Just did the 2BT for my wife and she go an immediate approval for $11.5K Visa but they will contact her about the AMEX by mail. She also got approved for the SPG AMEX. This was her first application for those 3 cards. We used the AA Citi links from your above listed links. Thank you … and it was nice meeting you last week: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kalboz/8240744518/

  28. Just a heads up for you all. I signed up for US Airways mastercard and they are refusing to waive the first year $89 fee. I actually thought the information on their website said they would but I could have been mistaken and just assumed it was so since I read it here.

  29. Bummer, my mistake and I can’t undo it now. I know I started with the link but probably got off the computer and went back a different way. Oh, well I should get two tickets out of this anyway even if I have to pay the $89.

  30. How long do you think the 40k miles bonus after spending $1,000 in 4 months would stay?

  31. I meant to mention…the 40k bonus miles with less spending for Citi American personal or business. Thank you 🙂

  32. Hi Darius,

    Can I use two browsers to apply 40k Citi master and Citi Amex cards each?

  33. Couple things:
    1. I got approved on 12/7 using the two-browser trick for the 50K AA Visa/Amex personal cards linked from your site. Visa card approved immediately. Amex card said something about further processing required. I called reconsideration line and was approved in minutes.

    2. As of moments ago (12/9 late evening PDT), the linked page to the SWAir plus business card looks active for 50K. However, the linked page for the SWAir plus personal for 50K appears dead. Is there any other link to the 50K SWair personal offer? I’m disappointed because I was going to apply for both tomorrow. 🙁

    3. Is it possible to apply for both the Chase Sapphire Preferred cards (Visa and Mastercard) with 40K bonus using two-browser trick?

    Thank you!

    • @B – I wouldn’t do more than 2 Chase cards at a time, so I’d pick either 2 Southwest or 1 Southwest and the Sapphire Preferred. You also may not be able to get the sign up bonus for both the MasterCard and Visa version at the same time, though folks have got the bonus for cancelling one version and opening another version. Both the Plus business and personal card applications load for me!

  34. Did you mean I am able to apply for both cards, Citi Master and Citi Amex without using 2-browser trick within 65 days? I just want to clarify before I apply. Did Citi set 65 days as the cut off time for applying those cards?

    Thanks.

  35. Just FYI, the SPG link seems to take you to an offer for 10K points after first purchase, not the 25K offer referenced.

  36. Yes. Both applications for the SW air cards did load for me this time. Thanks for looking into it and following up.

  37. My husband just got a targeted offer for 50,ooo AmeExpress membership Rewards card, no annual fee, for spending 1000 in 3 months. Can you tell me who puts out this card. We are maxed out on our Chase cards, so hoping it is not Chase. Do you think this is a good offer?

  38. The targeted offer is an American Express Premier rewards Gold Card. 50,000 points after $1,000 spend, 0 annual fee first year. If this is a bank card, how does it different from a credit card?

    • @Juli – It is a charge card which means that you have to pay the balance in full each month. You get 3 points for airfare and 2 points for gas and groceries, and 50K points is better than the public offer of 25K on the card. At the very least, you can redeem for ~$500 in flights/cash backs or you can transfer to certain airlines and hotels.

  39. If I apply for 2 Citi AA, do I have to provide 2 different AAdvantage numbers or can I use my AA acc?

  40. Looking to do 2-browser trick again for Citi AA cards. Last applications were 26 months ago.

    Cancelled Visa a year ago. Kept Amex one. Annual fee came up on last statement for Amex. Downgraded to Bronze Mastercard rather than closing the account. This was done a couple days ago. According to the rep, it won’t technically convert over to the new card until late January.

    My question is, am I okay to go ahead and apply (using 2-browser trick) for another Visa & Amex now? ….or will the fact that I just recently did the downgrade affect any application I do now? Is the downgrade treated as if I (in a sense) applied for another Citi card? Do I need to wait 60-90 days?

    I know I won’t get a hard inquiry on the conversion, but wonder whether Citi will see it (internally) as having “applied” for a card….

    Thank you….

  41. As a follow up to my question above, will the fact that I am downgranding my card be treated internally as having “cancelled” a card–thus it being prudent to wait 65-90 days?

    I agree on 100k miles being worth it. I’ll be applying. No question there. My only question is whether I do it now or wait 65-90 days (assuming links are still active, of course)?

    Am I looking into this too much? 🙂

  42. Can use 2-browser trick to apply for Citi Visa and Citi Master? I’m a confused puppy.

    Thank you for your help.

  43. Just applied for Citi Visa + Citi AMEX cards with 50,000 AAdvantage miles + 2 Admirals Club lounge passes. Both instantly approved. Will report if I can get the bonus.

  44. BofA Hawaiian airlines link isn’t working any more.

  45. NM… looks like the website was down

  46. DWs apps for 50K Citi + Lounge passes for both got instant approvals this time (denied 4 month back, I think we were still inside the 18 months lockout) . My concern is there is no landing page confirming this deal on both links. How do we prove we applied for the 50K AA and 2 club passes. Is there a way to call & confirm or just sit tight for the cards to arrive. Also 2 weeks for card arrival sounds excessive, I could use December spending to meet some of the 5K we need to meet for these two now 😉

  47. Hi!! I was just wondering if these miles are taxable? I read somewhere that citibank is giving some people 1099 for the miles.

  48. hi Darius, Thanks for this inspiring and very useful blog which I stumbled upon today.Got approved for both Citi AA Visa and Amex for self today. I applied within a gap of 12 hours. Hope I get 50k on both accounts. Recently I got United Mileageplus for self and the SW for both self and spouse. Wonder If I can go for Mileageplus for spouse and the Citi AAdvantage deal too. A question on AA miles, can I transfer BA miles to AA miles ? I am looking to travel to India with all these miles. Which one AA/United/BA in your opinion will provide the best benefit ? Thanks

    • @Craig – I really don’t know if downgrading the card is viewed internally the same way as cancelling a card! You could just wait and hope the offer is still active then.

      @Tsui
      – You could, but I’m not sure if there is a 50,000 point offer on the MasterCard as well. You get 100K AA miles if you apply for both the Visa and AMEX versions of the AA card with a 50,000 mile sign-up bonus.

      @HSinAz – You should get the card in about 10 days and can confirm the bonus when you call to activate the card.

      @aa – Sign-up bonuses on credit cards are currently tax-free.

      @Esskay – Yes, your wife can get the sign up bonus on the AA and United cards as well. For India, United miles are the best because you don’t pay fuel surcharges. If you’re willing to pay $400 per long distance segment (not worth it in coach, but could be worth it in business class), AA miles are useful as well because British Airways has lots of flights from London to India.

  49. Hi Darius,

    I have 50,000 American Express Reward Points. What is the best way to use those points? Should I transfer to Delta Skymiles for 50k miles?

    Thanks.

  50. What is the minimum spending requirement for Citi Amex, 1,000 in 3 mos or 2,500 in 4 mos? On your Hot deals page, you have Citi Amex in two places, 1,000 in 3 months and 2,500 in 4 months. Can I use 2-browser to get 1 Citi Master and 1 Citi Amex if the required spending is $1,000 in 3 months for each card.

    Thanks.

  51. RE: Citi application/downgrade (from earlier post)

    Just a data point for others:

    No issues. I was approved for both Citi Visa & Citi Amex.

    All is well in the miles world….

  52. Just FYI, the link to the Priority Club Chase card for 60,000 points takes you to a page that lists a spending requirement of $1000 in 3 months. It is the same offer listed on the Priority Club website. I couldn’t find an offer for first purchase.

  53. @cheri- use the link for the unpublished offer for 80k after first purchase. the landing page doesnt show the bonus but I just got it 2 days ago after using that link and spending 3 dollars on card. miles post when first billing cycle closes.

  54. Well , I just got my first denial from Chase. I applied yesterday for the Ink Plus, hoped to get it before the 5, ooo spend disappears. After calling 3 different times and speaking to 3 differnent CSRs and 1 supervisor . I got the you have opend 6 accounts with us this past year. Can`t approve this one . My rationale was I need a card that I can carry over some months, (Ink Plus ), so like I said I tried 3 differnent times , , could I close an account , or move from credit line from others to be approved ?
    Still no budging , I am thinking they are noting I have called in several times , soooooooooooooo, looks Like I may have to cancel some , or wait , whatcha think ?
    Maybe its gonna be tougher from here on , I do not want to cancel, Marriott, Hyatt, and I do not want to lose any Ulltimate Rewards, any advice on this ??

    • @Jerry – You could try calling back at a different time/day to see if you get the same reply. Alternatively, you could transfer your Ultimate Rewards points to one account and offer to close another Ultimate Rewards account again.

  55. Hi Darius,

    I’ve a Citi thankyou Premier World Master card. Do you think I can apply for Citi Visa or Master Card and still receive Bonus Miles?

    Thanks.

  56. I picked up the Southwest premier a couple of weeks ago, and was going to wait a month to go for the business card as Airtran 2 ticket deal and didn’t know how the spend requirement would fare. We hit Airtran in two weeks, so I used your link for the Southwest business card, and it encountered an error. With some further investigation, it appears they no longer offer the Southwest Business card as it doesn’t show on Chase’s site. Not happy with that development as the only reason I picked up the first Southwest was for the companion pass. Am I missing something or are quick companion pass seekers SOL?

  57. **Update to my post above. After trying on several computers, I finally went on my IPad and got the link to work. After a quick call to the reconsideration line, approved!

  58. Hello,

    Expecting some bills to become due soon and was hoping to get the Citi 50K mile offers – 2 browser trick. Are the links still valid? The url link that leads to application does not show any bonus mileage info.

  59. I recently acquired the sapphire visa (I’ve had it for a month and almost at the $3k min spend). I didn’t know about the 2BT 🙁 but am thinking of applying for the chase freedom and the chase SW. how long should I wait? would it make sense to apply for the freedom and the chase sw business instead of another personal card? thanks a million 🙂

    • @tsui – I’ve got the bonus for different versions of the Citi Thank You card.

      @Brian – Glad it worked out!

      @N.Kaufman
      – Based on the comments, the links to the 50K offer still work, but as always, your miles may vary.

      @joyce – You could get a Chase business card now and get another personal card after a few months.

  60. Applied using 2 browser trick. Visa got approved. Amex says – account is being processed. Called card application status at 1-888-201-4523. They said that application is being processed. Nothing more.

    Anything else that I can do here?

  61. Hey, just wandering around the site and realized you still had the Southwest card with a 50,000 RR sign up bonus on here. Mind switching it to avoid confusion amongst readers? Thanks!

  62. I recently applied for the Citi ThankYou Business Credit Card (by the 12/20 deadline to get the 50k bonus) and got the dreaded application under review, and then pending. I called the reconsideration line to see if they needed any additional information, and then was denied because I had prior business accounts with a reward program (all closed over 2 years ago). I asked which business cards they were because I’d never had a ThankYou business card. They the explained that I’d had a cash back card and an American Airlines business card (boy am I glad I didn’t accidentally re-apply to that one). In any event, I pleaded that I’d never had a ThankYou business card before, that it seemed a bit unfair and suggested that there might be some kind of glitch in there system. She agreed that it was odd. Then, I pointed out that I do have a personal ThankYou card and wanted a similar one for my business; plus, I am a CitiGold member and have my business banking account with them. She put me on hold and said that she’d be approving my account, but only with a 1k limit. I could have gotten a higher limit, but then would have to drastically decrease the limits on my recently opened personal CitiAA accounts–not worth the extra $2k. All in all, it was better than nothing–and I was able to save it from being a wasted credit inquiry.

  63. Hi Darius,

    Thank you for your response but you misunderstood what I meant on my last inquiry.

    By having a Citi thankyou card, do I still qualify for Citi AA Advantage bonus miles when I apply for either Citi Visa and Citi Amex cards?

    Thanks.

  64. Hello Daraius,
    Just wondering if you have heard of anyone getting both the Bold and Plus cards-(not necessarially at the same time, but within a few months apart)? I’ve had multiple personal cards at the same time with Chase, but did not want to waste a CCR if doubtful.
    Thank you for all the info!!!

    • @Jeremy – Folks have got both the Ink Bold and Ink Plus (some even at the same time), but it requires a call to the reconsideration line. That said, everyone will have different experiences and your miles may vary. Good luck!

  65. Confirmed during activation. Citi links/bonuses are good 🙂 Thanks!

  66. For the Citi American Airlines links, is it possible to apply for the 50K Visa and 40K Mastercard the same day to get both signup bonuses?

  67. if I’m not mistaken these ‘current offers’ with limits/numbers provided are rather out of date, just judging from the banks’ websites…

  68. THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP!

    I’m planning on churning the aa cards (both, I last applied close to two years ago)

    Do I need to sign up for new AA mileage account or can I use same old one? thanks

  69. I currently have an AA advantage card through Citi bank that I opened in May of 2012 for the frequent flier miles. I cannot remember if I opened this card by phone or on the internet via browser. I want to cancel this one and open different cards for the AA miles. Is there a way I can find out if I used a web browser to open the credit card? Thanks.

  70. For those of you applying for the Citi AAdvantage cards recently, have the miles noted above posted to your account yet? I ask because when you click on those links above, there is nothing on the application page verifying how many miles you receive by applying from that link.

    • @Br – That should be possible as well since you can get any 2 personal cards, though the 50K Amex will get you 10K more points.

      @Robert – The links on this page still work and are sometimes better than the offers on the bank websites.

      @chebraccia – You should be fine using your existing AA number.

      @Maggie – It doesn’t matter how you opened the card – you still have to wait 18+ months from when you were last approved to get the sign up bonus again.

      @Scott – Readers still comment that the links to the 50K offers work.

  71. It looks like the link to the Chase Air Tran card is only for 16 credits with $1000 spend. Perhaps that changed today? Or is there another way I can still get the 32 credit card? And any idea how these credits will transfer to Southwest?

    • @Rachel – I’ll remove the Air Tran card from this list since it only offers 16 credit now. You can transfer 16 credits to 1 Southwest flight credit. I’d wait a bit to see if the 32 credit offer comes back.

  72. This Link for 32 Air Tran credits sends to a Application for 16 credits. Does anyone have a 32 credit link? Thanks

  73. Jaime Stephens

    I love your website it is great! We will be building a house soon and putting a lot of the expenses on our card. We want a card with Gift Card rewards or stuff for the house, since we won’t be able to travel much at this point in our life. I see lot’s of travel and hotel cards, but do you have a recommendation for a good “stuff” (like gift cards most likely) credit card? Thanks for all the information!

  74. AA Deal link is still working, after you submit, and (I did chat verification) they wrote:
    “You have a couple great offers with this card. The first promotion is you can earn 50,000 bonus miles after you spend $2,500 within 4 months. You also get an additional mile per dollar spent on American Airlines purchases within the first year! ”
    I’m happy! thanks again!

  75. Hi
    Do you know if the links for Southwest rewards plus and business plus credit cards for 50,000 miles are still working?
    On the actual Southwest website it is offering only 25,000
    thanks!

  76. Also my husband had a southwest credit card that was closed on Aug 2012. Can he open another one up right now? Or will he be denied since it was about 6 months ago that he closed it?

    • @Jaime Stephens – Thanks for reading! The Chase Sapphire Preferred, Chase Ink Bold/Plus and other cards which offer Ultimate Rewards points can be converted to a statement credit or gift cards so the 40,000 point sign on bonus is worth $400 which you can use in any way. Similarly, you can redeem Citi Thank you points for gift cards and Southwest cards for gift cards as well. I’d research other hotel and airline programs and see if you get a good value for redeeming their miles and points into gift cards since not all programs have a good conversion rate to gift cards.

      @Tman – Thanks for confirming!

      @Christy – As long as the application page loads, you should be fine. If he had, say, the Plus personal version he can apply for either the business Plus version or the personal Premier again and should get the sign up bonus.

  77. Jaime Stephens

    Thanks so much for your response!

  78. very nice blog…
    but as european it is impossible to get all those great credit cards 🙁
    any alternatives?

    • @Christian – Thanks for reading. Unfortunately, I don’t know of many other ways to earn miles for Europeans. Miles for Blighty could be helpful since it is written by a European.

  79. I just added my mother to my Classic Gold Personal American Express card which usually charges $35 for the first 5 additional card holders but they told me they have a promo running where currently the first person you add is free for a year; I don’t know if this is just for my account or for all Gold Amex members; you might want to look into it

  80. Brilliant Tips from your website.
    Could you suggest credit cards or website for Canadians…so close yet so far.

  81. Hi I just did a double AA and they told me my link does NOT include the $100 Merchant Credit!
    Did that disappear recently?

  82. Thanks for your instruction for doing the double application for AA cards. I have received the cards and confirmed everything except the two admiral club passes. I wonder how long it usually takes to receive the ac passes after activation?

  83. “Earn 50,000 AAdvantage miles + 2 Admirals Club lounge passes when you spend $2,500 within 4 months on the Citi Visa & Citi AMEX.” Just approved for both cards after double browser and confirmed with agent of 50k each and 2AC each. That makes it 3 for 3 in past 4 months from citi biz visa, citi personal visa and Amex for 150k miles. Thanks again!

  84. Hi Darius!

    I found out too late in the year last year about using the personal and business version of the southwest card to try and get enough points for a companion pass. I got the personal premier card last year… and I just applied in December for the business version which I will be receiving soon. Would I be able to apply for the plus personal version now and try and use that card and the business card to get points for the companion pass? Or will I not get the bonus points for the plus since I already have the premier?
    Thanks for your awesome blog!

    • @ccdjape – You should get them in 4 to 8 weeks.

      @Webazoid – Very nice work! If you want to try for something “extra” you could cancel the business card after the points post and reapply for the business only (not personal) after 3 to 4 months.

      @amanda hall – Thanks for reading! If you cancel the premier card, you should be able to get the bonus when you reapply for the plus version of the personal card.

  85. Any advice on how to improve my changes of getting a business card for my sole proprietor company?

    1. Do they cross look at person vs business to make sure I don’t have to many cards oustanding

    2. Are they looking for a certain amount of business income.

    I track you on facebook.

    Thanks so much!

  86. Thanks for your previous reply! I just applied for the Plus and got approved. Do I HAVE to cancel my premier card to get the bonus points for the plus?
    Thanks!

  89. Hi There!! Does anyone know when does the Citi AAdvantage Amex & and Visa 100k offer expire? I want to apply but I’m afraid i might be denied because I just applied for the Southwest and Airtran credit cards (both approved)

  90. (1) Which hotel chain cards (Hilton, Hyatt, etc) should I apply for, if I wish to accumulate the most points/certificates for a 5+ nights hotel stay? I’m thinking about a Hawaii trip in the future.

    (2) Are the Citibank 2 browse(50k points x 2) still working ? If yes, do you have a link.

    (3) Which 2-3 business cards provide the most points ?

    (4) I’m getting ready to apply for a few new Bus & Personal cards. What’s the maximum # of cards you’d recommend?

    (5) How would I find out if which credit bureaus each card company uses ?

    Thanks for your help & sorry for so many questions.

    • @Mile Hustler – Thanks for sharing! But I’ve listed that card on the “Hotels Credit card tab”

      @Elizabeth
      – I don’t know when it will disappear (it has technically expired, but still works). You may be able to get of them since they are issued by a different bank.

      @Tom – The Hilton 50K links still work and are on the Hotel Credit card tab. I’d do a dummy search on the Hilton and Hyatt website to see how much the hotel rooms cost in points in the places you want to visit. It is fairly easy to earn lots of Hilton and lots of Hyatt points.

      Here’s a link on how to find out which credit bureau is used. The Chase Ink Bold/Plus are business cards which offer 50K points each and can be transferred to Hyatt. You can pair that with the Chase Sapphire Preferred or Chase Hyatt card for another 2 nights at a Hyatt. The maximum number of cards depends on how comfortable you are with applying for cards and if you can meet the minimum spending. That said, I usually do 5 to 6 cards each time.

  91. Hi Daraius, thanks for your blog! My wife and I are flying free RT PA to Hawaii, staying 7 nights at hiltons & marriots for free plus two island hops for free (minus the airline credit card fee for HI arlines). A question for you about the Hilton 2 nights free card. Can you cancel it and get it again in a year or so and get two more free nights, or is that a one time only offer. Thanks for your help.

    • @Ryan – I believe you can get it every 3 to 4 months. To be safe, you could leave the Hilton account number blank (so they create a new number) or enter a different account number. Safe travels and thanks for sharing!

  92. Hello,
    If I currently have the AA Citi Visa and AA Citi Amex (both opened in 2011), do I need to close them prior to applying for two new AA Citi cards?
    Thanks!

  93. Hi…

    Love the blog and keep up this great work. I am newbie and would like to know following….

    1. I applied for 4 cards recently and all have annual fees starting from next year. So the question is how do you manage them come next year. What are the actions? Following are options I can think of.
    * Most favorable situation is to renew the card with fee waved. This might work for year or so but let say after few years
    company decides no more fees waved now it will default to below two options.
    * Change the card to a regular card (so in 10 years or so I will be racking 40 cards? can’t think of that)
    * Cancel the card now if this happened in first year this might have small effect on the credit but if this happened later effect
    might be higher.
    Given all this I feel the best option is to canceling the card is the best option your thoughts?

    2. I recently applied for Chase United and Chase Ink Plus. Got accepted for United but not for Ink. For Ink I tried calling the business resolution line 3 time on the same day. They were claiming that my business is too new (3 months old) and so is my personal credit and they would like to see more credit established. Should I call and try more? When (sooner the better? or should wait? I applied for AA visa/amex got approved for both calling later will make them see that infor?)

    Thanks…..

    • @Maria – You may be able to get approved without closing them. But closing one of the two could decrease the amount of available credit you have, which could make for easier approval the next time. However, I’d wait 18+ months from when you were last approved before applying for the cards again.

      @rubu – I usually cancel the card in 8 to 10 months if the benefits aren’t strong enough to keep. However, there are some cards which I’ll keep for a long time because of the annual benefits like free hotel nights or redeemed miles. If this is the first set of cards, Chase might be vary of extending you too much credit. But you can call back and explain that you don’t want too much credit.

  94. Hi! I just tried the Citi Visa and Amex link above (2bt) and got approved but saw nothing on the 50K promotion before or after appoval. Does that mean I am SOL?

    Thanks!

  95. Big D,

    Decided to call you Big D since you are the man with the plan! Did my first App-O-Rama today. Was instantly approved for Southwest Personal Chase, got a Pending Review for the Business Southwest, Both pending reviews for Citi AAdvantage Visa and Amex and was denied Amex SPG.

    1. I heard Amex won’t approve anything over the phone, should I just write them or is it a lost cause I heard they are very tough.
    2. Should I wait with my Citi cards or should I contact their new applications line to ask them if they need any additional information?
    3. Do you recommend calling the Chase business line the day after if the card is pending?

    Thanks and keep up the great work!

    Erik

    • @Nita – The links have technically expired, but folks are still getting the 50K miles.

      @Erik – Ha! I’d call Citi and see if they can push through the apps. I’d also call the Chase reconsideration line since it can take a while to get approved for a business card. For AMEX, it doesn’t hurt to call to see if they can do anything, but I haven’t had much luck with them.

  96. How do you know when the offers expire? Like the 50k Citi one? How would you know if you could still get the points? Would you call and ask about that offer?

    Thanks!
    Melissa

  97. I have the Chase Sapphire card and want to get this Chase Sapphire Preferred Card for 40,000 miles.

    In the fine print for this Chase Sapphire Preferred card deal, it says “This one-time bonus offer is valid only for first-time cardmembers with new accounts. Previous and existing cardmembers/accounts are not eligible for this bonus offer”.
    Has anybody experienced how to get around this or is it even possible to get the Chase Sapphire Preferred Miles with me having a Chase Sapphire?

    Also, since I am new to the forum and have never used miles, is it possible to mix miles from the Chase Sapphire Preferred and United Explorer Mileage Plus for a United flight?

    Thanks.

  98. I did the two browser trick for the Visa and Amex personals for the AA – how long do I have to wait to apply for the business card, and will I get the AA bonus points if I’ve already gotten them for the personal cards?

  99. Philip,

    You can transfer your UR points (the points you get from chase saphire) to United miles at 1:1 ratio. So yes, you can MIX the points together. The beauty of the UR points is that they can be transferred to United, Hyatt, etc at good ratios. I am not sure the tx to Hilton, amtrak, etc is worthwhile, as you can do better but it all depends on how you value miles and points.

    • @Melissa – It usually works as long as the application page can be pulled up.

      @Philip – The Chase Sapphire and Sapphire Preferred are different cards so you should be able to get the bonus on the Sapphire Preferred. You can transfer points from your Sapphire Preferred to United. And if you have points from your regular Sapphire card, you can transfer those to the Sapphire Preferred and then to United.

      @Brian
      – I’d wait at least 95 days from when you got the personal cards and you should get the 50K miles for the business card as well.

  100. I just did the two browser trick for TWO 50k AAdvantage Citi Visas. I was approved for both at the same time. I will get the 50k bonus for each right? I keep seeing most people do a Visa and an AMEX, but I just want to be sure that the two browser trick for two Visas will also get 100k miles?

    Thanks for the blog!
