  1. Yes. Easily.Do you have another Chase card? Nope, but interested in applying for the Freedom Unlimited or Slate, just wanted to make sure they'd move limits off of the BA first, since they denied a product change. You could apply for the soon to be launched Sapphire Reserve and PC to another card after a year. $450 AF, but you should be able to get the $300 travel credit 2x and the bonus is worth a minimum of $1000 if you redeem the points for cash back. $1650-$450=$1200 minimum. Might be worth it, need to look into it. Downgrading my AA Exec, so I wouldn't have two $450 AF cards, at least.
  2. Yes. Easily.Do you have another Chase card? Nope, but interested in applying for the Freedom Unlimited or Slate, just wanted to make sure they'd move limits off of the BA first, since they denied a product change. Going through a purge on cards with AFs that get little use.

  4. Will Chase allow reallocation from the BA card to one of their mainline products (CSP/Freedom/Slate)? I have a $29.5k BA card that is useless.
  5. I wonder if they'd switch my 50k offer to the 75k... I just hit the spend requirement on the 50k, but I could sure use those extra 25k miles since its another free trip.
  6. Shoot, I wonder if they'll change my $5k spend for 50k miles deal to that
  7. Another Citi data point. Was just approved for a DC card. Was not offered a line movement at approval. After I got the card, I called in to number on the back of DC card and rep said they don't move limits. I asked on this card or any card. She said any card. I told her I just moved limits on my AA card a few weeks ago, so they do move limits. Was told she did not have the authority to request it, so I asked who did..was transferred to a supervisor and was able to request partial move from TY Premier to DC card. Will update on outcome and whether or not they pull a CR. Update - conversion complete, no CR pulled. Seems like Citi is firmly in the "will" bucket, but front line reps will push back. This wasn't an instant process? How long does it generally take from the request from the supervisor? Mine took about 24-48 hours when I moved limits from Simplicity and HHonors to AA.
  8. I was just approved for a Chase Marriott card. Below is what the card will do for me, both short-term and ongoing. Contrast this analysis with the rationale for, say, getting a card because it has a sports team logo on it, or getting a store card from Muumuus at the Mall®. Immediately: - 70,000-point signup bonus after nominal spending requirement. We're going to Europe in August, and I've virtually exhausted my inventory of hotel points. This will be a good start to replenishing the supply for our 2016 vacation. Next ~5 years: - Two ways to get to Platinum status faster (credit for 15 nights/year automatically, and then one more credit per $3,000 spent). I'm staying at Marriott properties a lot more often than I have historically, but not often enough to achieve Platinum on stays alone. I'm stuck at Gold, and would otherwise be at that level indefinitely - With Platinum status comes 50% bonus points on stays, and late checkout privileges (one of my favorite perks of hotel elite status) and a host of other benefits ranging from dubious to valuable, depending on one's perspective (Marriott Platinum elite benefits). - 5 points/$ spent at Marriott. - In exchange for the $85 annual fee (waived the first year) I will receive a complimentary night at a category 1-5 hotel every year (these properties are nothing to dream about, but we will definitely use this benefit in some smaller town during the year, which is enough to make this effectively a no-AF card after you net out the cost of the free night). You broke your own rule and didn't post the limit... for shame!
  9. Fifth Third Platinum $9k Chase Hyatt $10k BBVA Compass NBA Amex $7k - For teh lulz and no AF for life if approved by June 30th As for the Amex SPG and the Chase Hyatt - I have big spending coming up and am going to use them to get the bonuses, since I'm traveling quite a bit and don't really have a preference where I stay since hotel points are worth jack. The Fifth Third was a pre approval and has no AF, so also for teh lulz.
  10. HP generally unless the CLI request is straight prohibited.
  11. How many total new accounts? 10, although probably a couple less reporting at the time they pulled.
  12. Citi is a tough nut to crack on CLIs under 6 months, very few actual cases of this happening on here.
  13. For science... denied a Chase Slate, but approved for a Chase Hyatt 3 days later with a $10k starting limit. Reason on the Slate, too many cards opened within last 2 years.
  14. Fifth Third Platinum $9k Chase Hyatt $10k So with all the Chase buzz can you tell us if you had more than 5 new accounts in the last 2 years when you apped? Just curious. Yes, I did it for science. I was declined for a Slate, but approved for the Hyatt.
