Haven't applied in more than 3 months, so today was the day:

1) Chase British Airways 50K-25K-25K  - Approved via Recon
2) Chase Ritz 2 Free Nights + 10K Points - Approved via Recon
3) Citi Business AA 60K (No Language Offer via Mail) - Approved Instantly
4) Barclay Jetblue 30K - Approved Instantly
5) Barclay Arrival Plus 50K - Pending (Not Going to Call Unless Doesn't Get Approved)
6) Wells Fargo Propel World 40K - Denied (Have account with them, and even tried getting banker to call up on my behalf but no go as they said too many inquiries and closed accounts within 24 months)
7) Wells Fargo Cash Wise Visa $150 Bonus - Approved Instantly (figured since I already took the credit hit couldn't hurt to apply for another card since they merge, and it was approved. Which makes zero sense, but better than nothing I guess)

Pretty good haul, lots of spending to do though

Not a bad haul, why did you do B6 instead of AA or LH? Both worth more than B6.

Have 1.6M of AA so no need right now, and no current need for LH either. Will look into them down the road. Have some TB from last years 75K promo so just wanted to add to it.

Why no amex? The Citi and Barclaycard new accounts will likely report within a few days.

Hard for me to find any decent Amex cards I havent had. I did upgrade a Hilton card to Surpass a few weeks ago for 100K points though with no language.

Thanks guys, they said as soon as I spend $5K within 3 months, respond to the SM and they would match the third night.

Got a call today about moving some credit over for Barclay, and was approved for Arrival+ as well (just closed my old one 3 months ago).

And got matched to 3 nights Ritz, so this was probably one of my best hauls ever with very few snags.

7/7 On may 3rd.

1) EDP 30k - Instant Approval
2) PP Mercedes 60k - pending. Approved 20min later
3) Alaska Personal 30k - Instant Approval
4) Alaska Biz 30k - Pending, Approved the next day
5) TD Aeroplan 25k - Instant Approval
6) TD First Class 25k-  Pending, Approved automatically at some point because it showed up in my account a couple days later
7) Jetblue Biz 30k - Pending - 8 Days later (today) Approved with no recon! This was the card I wanted the most. I was getting worried about that one especially since they actually tried calling me a couple days ago and the connection was really spotty so I asked them to call me right back but they never did and but eventually it made its way through the system somehow. I was not looking forward to a grilling from them.

2k/3mo
5k/3mo
1k/3mo
1k/3mo
3k/3mo
1k/3mo
3k/6mon

not in the same order as above

Kicking myself for not doing more honestly. Im already basically done with all the spending. I was going to throw the BA Chase card in there but the recent shutdown reports scared me off.
