I would not recommend 4 chase cards at a shot.

Who ever said anything about 4?

My message:(to memb rewards> point balance)

"Hi,

I am enjoying my new Amex Platinum. Thank You.

I just want to write in and see if you can make sure the insite promo I did will go through. I downloaded the program to try. The promo code is 6549 for 10k points.

Can you put a note on my account to make sure I get the points within a few weeks?

Thank in advance for your great customer service.
-Jay"


Will post when I get response.

Okay. Going for it. Installed and ready to try the code.

Thinking of just giving them a call for a first try. Any reason not to?

I think you can still try for the 10k, 6549.

Follow the regular link, install, then call and ask?

-Thanks

@smokey what does downgrade to zync do? keep my amex acct. for warranties etc.? will that work?

@gozalim  It sounds like CO is not upgrading to 50k anymore. For 30k I dunno.

It's a Citi AA Platinum Visa - 75k (plus I had expired miles which I brought back to life through the AA i-can't-remember-the-name challenge)  :D

Now that the offer has been switched (to $10) there is now way to sign up and get 10k is there?

I feel like an idiot that I procrastinated jumping on this. Oh well.

Sorry, I edited my original post for the reply. It said: "I plan on signing up for the following 5 cards soon (already did amex plat (100k) and aa plat (75k) earlier this year - 4 months ago)"

I didn't cancel my amex plat. b/c when I called to cancel the rep gave me a mussar shmooze about how I already cashed in on a few hundred thousand points (I did a bunch of referrals) and that they like me as a customer....yada...yada. He also offered me another 25k to not cancel.  ;D  I took the bait.

So no churning for now.

Also, since I don't have any other amex cards as of now I assume that if I cancel I forfeit any warranty benefits from the purchases with my platinum.

I am hoping that once I have the gold I can cancel plat and still have the rights to a warranty claim from Platinum days.

Guys thanks for the valuable insights.

@AsherO - 'Yaakov s' is right - I am intimidated by the $3k spend. I know there are ways to hock around with gift cards etc. but I don't have the patience to read the forums, understand it, and then do it.

So the consensus is that CO is out? Okay. Thanks.

I live in NY anyone have experience with the Business & Consumer Amex pulls?

My modified plan:
Amex: [immediately]
1) Matching to 75K Premier Gold
2) Matching to 75K Business Gold

Chase: [might put this on hold for a bit as I research the best options]
3) Matching to 50K Continental
3) Matching to 50K United
4) Hyatt card
5) unknown other chase card

570
Anyone know about the following two scenarios?

I buy a laptop with Amex Platinum and then cancel card some point later

1) With no other Amex card - can i call up to claim benefits such as warranty, return/theft protection, etc?

2) With a diff. Amex card still active - can i call up to claim benefits such as warranty, return/theft protection, etc?

Amex:
1) Matching to 75K Premier Gold
2) Matching to 75K Business Gold

Chase:
3) Matching to 50K Continental
4) Matching to 50K United
5) Hyatt card

I assume I should do these in 2 sets with the 3 browser method? (1st for amex and then chase)
Correct?

Am I making a mistake trying to sign up for 5 cards at once?

Anything else I need to know?

572
I am sorry to sound like a dummy but is this still alive. Is it 30k and you can call to get it switched to 50k?


Is this a good option for my 3rd Chase app with the 3 browser method?

So do we have a concensus on the best three Chase cards?

I am thinking:

1) Sapphire
2) Hyatt
3) ? - which is the one that still has 50k if you call up[/li][/list]




Thanks.
