SP Visa: Pending
UA Personal: Approved

Amex:
Platinum Card (Mercedes): Approved
Business Gold: Approved

Citi:
CitiBusiness AAdvantage: Approved

Time to revive this thread:

I never ended up applying, but I'm ready to do this, today!

3bm each for Chase, Amex and Citi. BofA VS card (50k), US Air, and maybe some others. Your thoughts/suggestions?

Cards I'm considering:

Chase:
SP WMC
UMPE
??? (what's the likelihood a 3BM including an Ink Plus will still be one pull?)

Amex:
SPG Consumer
50k Plat
50k MB Plat (TOFTT?)

Citi:
AA Visa +MC
New Hilton card??

BofA:
50/65k VS
$400 TravelRewards

Barclay's:
US Airways (I have an existing card, to do 2bm or not to do, hmmm)
Any other Barclay's cards you can recommend?

US Bank:

FlexPerks 30k - to do or not to do? ???

Why not go for the Chase SW, BoA Virgin and Hawaii, and Citi TY, (Visa and MC)?

Also, isn't Amex platinum dead?

Chase has better offers for me than SW.
I've got BofA VS on my list (see above), I already have an open HI (and AK) card, think I can apply again with an existing open card?
I prefer 100k AA over 100k TYP, disagree?

I got a 50k Plat, but I'm not allowed to discuss it on here ;) (please don't PM me asking)

True, but TY is better than Hilton IMO. Why not try a 4BM with Citi?

I'm afraid one of the recon reps will notice 4 apps and I'll get slaughtered (i.e. lose out on all four approvals).

The Plat thread has a 50k for 3k spend link.
The Biz Plat thread had a 50k link also.

Not doing Biz apps with Amex, that triggered my F/R and caused me to get shut down in the first place.

Then can anyone recommend a 3rd consumer card?

I currently have UA (old CO), SPV, Hyatt, Freedom V, and SW (I also have a few biz cards).

Will this also be a test to see if Amex will let you back in the game after ejecting you?

Right, and my guess is it'll be easier if I only apply for consumer cards. If they ask for another 4506T they'll see income on my returns.

The only question is, if I get approved should I also try to reopen my original SPG account (had it since 04)...

Do the SP MC game. Or the 80k PC offer which also gives you a free night each year for a $49 annual fee after year 1. The Marriott 70k linky appears to have died.

Priority Club. Not the greatest offer since you can buy their points for .7 cents, but it gives you Plat status (worth very little) and the annual free night.
Check FT for the unlisted linky

Why not get the Plat (MB) and get 50k and spend $1k only?
