My Wife’s July App-O-Rama (7 Cards)

I was feeling lucky so I did 7 applications for my wife in July. So far she has been approved for 6 of 7 cards. The 7th card is a Citi Hilton HHonors card that was part of the 2-Browser trick. They sent her a letter requesting a bunch of bank/phone/work documents last week. Since she has already been approved for one of them, she is already considered a cardholder and cannot get it for another 18+ months so there’s no point in fighting it and trying for the 2nd one.Once we get all the points it will be quite a haul: 380,000 points! The 35,000 bonus miles from the Hawaiian cards can be transferred to Hilton HHonors in a 1:2 ratio so the 35,000 miles will become 70,000 HHonors points.

    7 is too many at one time, i always do 3-4 only if there are good sign up bonuses.

    @Pilot – Why do you think 7 is too much at once?
