Credit Cards / Transfer Credit limit from personal to business line
« on: January 24, 2013, 09:06:14 PM »
If I am declined for a new business card/s can I call and offer to transfer some of my credit line from my personal cards to my business cards that I'm trying to get?
Right now they have given me pretty high lines of credit and I don't need such high lines on any particular card, I'd rather spread the wealth ;-)


Credit Cards / Multiple Amex Golds at the same time?
« on: December 03, 2012, 09:56:21 AM »
I have 4 different LLCs can I apply for all 4 to get the 50k bonus on all of them at the same time, they each have EIN's but ultimately they will all be guaranteed by my SSN.  Will this trigger reviews, etc. I am self employed and its harder for me to prove all the income upon review.
Another option I can put my wife's SSN for a couple of them.

[I currently have between my wife and myself (SP MC, SP Visa, Southwest x 2, ink bold).  All were received in the last 2 mos.] I tried to get a SP MC & SP Visa under my name, but they wouldn't let, even though I explained that I need the MC only for my trips to Israel and that I really prefer the Visa when I'm in the US, but they wouldn't go for it, they said you have the SW visa already as well.

Also, I want to open Ink Bolds and Ink Plus for each of the LLCs.  For a total of 4 Amex Golds, 4 Bolds, and 4 Plus.

Should I stagger them or just apply for them all?

I'm right, 1mm points ain't much for your family size Ka"H. Even if you had 1mm UR, you'd burn 720k on just r/t economy award tickets (not including your baby). Other currencies would be less, and you haven't factored hotels in...

I doubt Chase will let you get ink (Bold + Plus) x 4 business entities all on your own SSN, please keep us posted on how it plays out. Also, you might want to consider selling your points to brokers and using the cash to pay for your trip. Some of the cheap airfare to TLV similar to those Dan posted recently (which are already expired), and/or cheap flights on Turkish, Aeroflot, Transaero etc. might be best for your budget.
Can't I churn (still learning the dansdeals lingo)the bold and plus, after I get the bonus, transfer the points to my SP and then close it and open the plus for that biz entity?  And I figure I can explain that I need a separate card for each of my biz to keep the expenses straight for each entity.  Also, at present they have given me $15k-$30k on each of my current cards for a combined credit line of $93,000 in a 2+ month span!?!?  [I have other CCs from before that aren't rewards cards - also not from Chase].I figure if I offer to spread that out a bit between the biz entities... 

I will definitely keep you posted on what works for me and what doesn't.

Credit Cards / Re: Chase Sapphire Visa & MC, what to do?

I'm a newbie, got hooked on dansdeals 2 months ago, (I have 5 cards and counting) gotta learn by asking?  Also, just finished getting my spend bonus on the SP MC.

You don't know? Then why do you want to keep your SP Visa active?

1,000,000 (depending which points, obviously), might not be that much depending on what kind of trip you're planning and how many kids you have.

Trip to Israel for 2 adults, 7 kids and baby
I just started in the last 2 months (I now have SP MC (x2), SoutW (x2), Ink Bold (x1), I have 3 more biz entities that I hope to get bold and plus for each, and maybe a few AMEX Biz Golds one for each.

What do you think, and how much time should I leave in between applications?

Anyone know of a great deal on a nice hotel 4 or 5 stars in NYC for Thanksgiving?
I don't want to use points I just got hooked on dansdeals and I set my goal on 1,000,000 points for this year for a mega trip to Israel for my family.

I have a Sapphire Preffered Visa, and ordered a Sapp Pref MC but got a letter stating I already have a Sapph pref, to call the number on my card???
What do I say in order to get the Visa in addition to my MC?
