Chase British Airways Card Click Here to get more details on this card and compare to other cards!

There is a new Chase BA offer that can be seen here:

1 - If I did a 3bm with Chase about 40 days ago (Co, United and Sapphire) what are my chances of getting approved now with another 3bm for (let's say) BA, Freedom and SW?

2 - If I did the Chase BA 100k offer after spending 3k in 3 months, about 18 months ago, what are my chances of getting approved for this A)with my old BA FF number or B)a new BA FF number?

Thanks a lot!

Re: Chase Sapphire Reserve My experience (in short). Maybe it will help someone.

I opened 3 Chase, 1 Chase AU, and (supposedly, see below) 1 Barclay in last 24 months.

Applied for Reserve, got denied.

Called Recon. Rep was incredibly brusque. Didn't even say hello etc. just "let me check the status etc." - put on hold - "denied, too many cards opened in the last 24 months. Is there anything else I can help you with?".

HUCA'd recon. Next rep was rude "didn't you already speak to a colleague about this already?". Couldn't budge him, even by explaining that 1 of the 5 was AU.

HUCA'd recon. Rep asked me how I use the AU card. I innocently replied that I use it and then "we" (my wife and I) pay the bill. She pounced on that "so, you're telling me you are responsible to pay the bill of the AU, and therefore it counts as 5/24".

HUCA'd recon. Rep said no way to approve due to 5/24. I tried explaining that 1 was AU. She replied "your account was already noted by a previous rep that you are responsible for the AU". Ouch. I then asked her what the 5 were. She told me 3 Chase, 1 Chase AU, and 1 Barclay. I honestly couldn't recall any Barclay so I tried getting that discounted. She said you need to dispute with Experian.

Called Experian about the Barclay. They said the account was open and in good standing. I'm absolutely sure that I have no open Barclay account, even if I may have possibly opened one in the last 24 months (which I don't think I did). Seeing something was clearly wrong, I disputed the Barclay. They said can take up to 30 days, then 7 days to contact me.

I wasn't happy since after 30 days I would need to re-apply with Chase.

HUCA'd Chase recon. Told them I disputed the Barclay but it may take too long. The conversation was pleasant and rep was nice. After trying different ideas the rep suggested getting removed as AU. I got her to say point-blank that if removed I'd be approved and had her put those words in the notes.

Called Chase CS to get removed as AU. Rep thankfully mentioned to call Experian too, otherwise it would still show on my credit report.

Called Experian. Had AU removed.

HUCA'd recon. Asked rep to read notes of previous rep that if removed as AU I'd be approved. Rep read notes, put me on hold, asked questions, hold again, asked questions.....

Re: Laptop Deals Master Thread
How is this?
$399 with code SAVE270MORE
Where do you find these codes?
They really bring down the price.

Re: Newark EWR Airport Parking Master Thread
Any good deals for Newark (EWR) parking now?
I need for 3 days.
I will answer my own question. Maybe it will help someone else.

The cheapest I found for the 3 days was about $21 with Extended Stay America, through "unitedairportparking" or "airportparkinginc".
However, their shuttle is only until 11 PM, which wasn't good for me.
Through "way" I was able to get for about $26 with Jiffy (no fees at lot).
This was cheaper than booking directly with Jiffy, and even cheaper than buying their Groupon.
That was my best option.

A few odd points.
1 - On "way" don't just book based on list price as different companies charge different fees and the final price may be more or less than what it seems. Rather add to cart and see final price then go back and try with another company.
2 - Not all companies always show up on the first list. Only after following through with one to the booking page and then clicking back, do you see all companies.
3 - Jiffy was listed with a generic "Newark EWR Parking" name. Only after booking can you see it's Jiffy.
4 - The email receipt didn't have a barcode to scan at the exit and we needed to go inside for them to print a barcode to scan.

Re: marriott points expiring
Actually not.
I tried it and it didn't work.

Re: marriott points expiring
any other ideas on extending?
My cheapest option was to transfer in 1000 Chase Ultimate Reward points.
