To signup for credit cards you can click here or on the “other credit cards” tab on top of the DansDeals logo banner to view links for card offers. Then just click on the link to “View all card offers by issuing bank” and scroll down to view all card offers from the bank of your choice.

Pulls from TU in NJ, NY , FL , PA

Recon 866 408 4064 (might pull from Experian)

For those who want to churn and/or want to get the bonus without paying the annual fee: Wait until the A/F gets charged, pay it off with the rest of the bill, and the sign-up bonus will post (at the end of that billing cycle). Then call to close the account and ask to be refunded. They can't charge an A/F for a card you aren't using. You will not lose the miles once they are in your US Airways account.

It seems that if after you use the card you just let it sit unused for a couple months, they will then email you with a targeted offer for 15,000 more points for spending $750 a month for three months.

I think they said you get it once the promo ends. Maybe by next statement.

Any risk in closing before the miles post? I'm at day 30, I just paid the af and the miles have not posted yet...

Any risk? Not really. Aside from NOT GETTING THE MILES.
I wouldn't close before it posts, but if you want to try it and let us know, be my guest :)

Some reps insist on 30, but most will refund up to 60.

Latest strategy? Close current US card before opening, or go in guns blazing?

I tweeted friday @AskBCUS for the AF they asked me to DM the phone # for the account, they called me about half hour later & she told me she cant compleatly waive the AF bcuz i wont get the miles if i dont pay atleast $89 on the bill, so she send she could give a credit for $44.50 half of the AF, but you still have to pay at least $89  and ill have a credit of $44.50. ;) i probebly could have pushed for the whole AF but i rememberd hogs get.... & pigs get..... or something like that  :))

Did the statement close after you paid?

Gotta wait for 2nd statement close.
You could always try to get your AF waived, but make sure they don't say you won't get your miles.
