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.

Priority Club has released its next PointsBreak list good through October 15, 2012. Nights only cost 5,000 points which is an excellent deal if you will be traveling to any of the cities with availability. Ignore the note about only valid till July 31st, that is an error and should be updated shortly. The valid dates for the regions are correct.
Book by August 15th at 11:59PM for travel between August 22 and November 14th. Just fill out your info on the Virgin America Form to receive the 20% discount coupon.
So you’ve done your research and have found the perfect credit card to apply for. But after you hit the submit button and cross your fingers it comes back pending, or even worse denied. But don’t worry, all hope is not lost. Enter the call for reconsideration. Continue reading
I received a Pending screen after submitting my application for the Hawaiian Airlines card from my July Mini App-O-Rama. I waited 3 days and since there was no update on my status I called BOA about my pending application. Continue reading
Since the BA 100,000 mile deal was expiring, I decided it was time to apply for another round of cards. My last mini AOR was April 5th, also for 3 cards. I normally like to only do an AOR every 4 months or so for 3 per year, but the BA card offer getting the ax had me rethink things. Sometimes it’s worth it to take a risk on an application for a new card. Continue reading
I had applied and received the Chase Southwest Plus card back in April. Shortly after all offers were pulled. I needed another 50k miles to reach companion status so my wife and I could fly home for Xmas this year for the cost of a single fare. Even though the T&C says otherwise, the bonus signup miles were counting toward companion status in the past. I’m not sure if that’s still the case, so YMMV with this round of cards. Continue reading

A Slickdeals user posted about a deal at Costco for an American Airlines $300 gift card for only $270. When you redeem the gift cards you can use up to 8 in one transaction, and they can be used on AA or ANY OneWorld partner airline. This isn’t available at every Costco, so YMMV if it will be waiting for you at your local store. You can call your local Costco and ask them to check stock for item #576515 before you waste a trip.
