Which would be better for my credit then? I'm thinking maybe Bold, because there's not credit line attached ?
1)IP

2)-1

As i thought...
I ain't no pro, but just to elaborate: IP will give you more available credit thus lowering your utilization ratio, while IB has no CL so the CBs estimate your CL based on your largest reported balance. So unless you do lots of spending one month, and drastically decrease it thereafter, it won't improve your credit score.

Its all YMMV. I just applied for a Chase personal + Biz and got only one pull.
And yet another success story!
Did the same thing for my wife: UA personal + UA biz.
Just checked EX and lo and behold! ONE pull!!
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

Do they still match the UA explorer Biz card to 50K from the publicly available 30K offer? haven't see any reports recently.

Yes. Recently.

Anyone have a screenshot of the offer? Was it a public offer?

Never matched to the business before. Just want to know what I'm talking about exactly.

They don't ask for a screenshot.

Do it the exact same way as with a personal card, just 50k instead of 55k.

Thanks. I was just wondering if this was a public offer that is expired. Or a semi-targeted one like the ones for 55K that showed up in many peoples accounts when miles were added?

No clue. But if it works, it works. ;)

I was credited the other 20k points and my statement closed 4/19.
Points still haven't posted to united.
Is that normal
I merged different united accounts about 3 weeks ago. Will that have messed things up?

If I apply for Personal and Business, should I use two different FF numbers?
(Earlier people wrote that one was okay. Is that still true?)
Thanks.
