Sorry for the lack of sympathy! :P

No problem at all. My lack of patience doesn't work well with the credit card game. Oh well.

Wow. Just spent (way) too much time preparing an AOR. Went for 10 cards. 0 instant approvals. 1 app came back w/ an error. Crushing.

If I already have a card from 1 bank (like AMEX) under a specific address, is it risky to apply for a different AMEX with a different address since I'm using the same SS?

Besides the fact that it will cost you another $8 per $1,000 I don't think they will let you for two reasons. 1)It's hard enough to get them to let you use a credit cards now you are asking them to use multiple cards for on that purchase $200 x 5. (What I mean by hard is that, you don't want to bring it to their attention that you are using a credit card to buy gift cards bec then they ask their manager.....) 2) Many times they check ID on large purchases, not sure how that will play out with dumb cashiers and prepaid visa debit cards.

You can buy a store gift card that has no fee and then swap it on the gc swap website, so that would avoid further fees. And in regards to paying for VR with CVS gc and not getting a manager called over... YMMV.

You can only have 4 AMEX credit cards at a time.
AMEX charge cards don't count towards the limit.

Citi AA links are constantly changing-you can find them in the Citi AA thread.  You can have more than 1.  MBMs with Citi typically have more than 1 pull, YMMV.

It card is good for the 5%, no Forex, and Israel CDW, but that's about it.

Thanks Dan! :-)

Can I get some suggestions? I'd like to do an AOR for all banks except Chase since I have 5 cards opened with them recently.

Barclays
Lufthansa
Arrival
US Airways

I know everyone says there's no chance to get approved for more than 1 card these days, but I don't mind spending the few minutes to try anyway.

AMEX
I have Blue Cash (not preferred)
CMIIW you can only have 4 AMEX cards open at once. So, which 4 would I want? Should I close my BC so I could go for a different 4th card? I'm going to guess SPG should be on the list b/c Dan raves about it.

Citi
I have an AA Gold Visa that I recently downgraded to the Bronze Mastercard to avoid the AF. Which other Citi cards can/should I go for? (Can you have more than 1 AA card at a time?) Why aren't any Citi cards listed on the Wiki with links - is it simply that Dan doesn't have affiliate links with Citi?

Discover
Any purpose in going for an It Card? I don't have a Freedom card.

Okay, phew! I know that was a ton. If anyone can answer any parts of that, it would rock! thanks

Has anyone had success buying VRs with a CVS gc or a Visa gc? I know once you're getting 5X at Office Depot for a gc you could just upload it at WM, but uploading VRs online seems so much easier. Also, even if Office Depot doesn't sell CVS gc, you can use this site
(https://www.plasticjungle.com/cvsgiftcard) to swap any gc basically with a CVS gc. Found the link in an old forum post.

My friend has had a Wells Fargo cc for 2 years but never used it. CS is 728 but that's basically useless since there's no payment history on it, just some student loans. Odds for getting a new cc approved? Was thinking of suggesting Freedom.

90+ days

Why is that necessarily true? The banks are different banks, so why not just try right away for the Chase 3bm? From what I've read on other sites, the hit from a credit pull is very minimal. Also where does 90 days come from, if the hit stays on your report for 2 years?

I have 14 bluebird cards (family) so new cards are done generally in 1 day..

Wow. Do you have a full time job?

True, but I buy VR's with my SPG so I can get hotels on the cheap & I get UR points via Ink CC's etc..

Technically the best card to buy VR's with is the United Club card... Its the most valuable way to earn miles.

I don't see why. You could always have a storeroom of new CCs waiting to hit their thresholds and knock them out with VR. Definitely the most points you'll get for $5000/mo of VRs.

Just got email from BB that they are changing their terms starting soon. They will only allow 1 debit card to be linked with an account. I guess they are trying to put a stop to gc's.

Join the club. See above posts.

Anyone have experience getting 3 pulls for a 3BM with Barclays?

IMO yes.
Even though I say don't bother with 3.

If I knew how to quote Dan from the main site, I would tell you he responded to me that it can't hurt to at least try a 3BM. Waste 5 minutes of your time at most?
