I need some help in the game. I have been playing for a lil while and here is where Im at and what I need.
I signed up for:
- AA 100k offer in December 2010- spent the money and got the mileage.
- BA 100k offer- spent the money and got the mileage
- Amex Plat 100k- spent the money and got the mileage and so much more with lounges and resort credits on stays of vacation. Woohoo! (Opened for my wife and same result as well.)
- Amex Gold 50k- spent the money and got the mileage. (opened for wife and same result)
All these cards still remain open.
Then, most recently i applied for the Hyatt, 2 chase cards and my credit score went down with the applications and I was denied all three cards. I called 2x and they told me both times that I had too many pulls in the last 6 months. I tried to negotiate to cancel other cards or to switch balances...no avail on either.
Am I supposed to wait now for 3 months or should I keep trying? When do I cancel the ones open?
Some advice for me on any of these issues? I need more points
