I have delta but everyone says that it's not a great program and not worth spending on it so I guess a card for miles for flights around the U.S. Chatsworth spending on

Delta is good for travel to SLC, MCI & MSP. Otherwise IMO its garbage.
You should signup for a SPG card personal & business. I dont think you will regret it :)

Got to HUCA. You basically got 0 cards out of your personal pull.

I have both SW (personal and plus) and british and Iove them both for short/medium haul around the US. southwest can be useful for you if you're in one of their focus cities.

with their devaluation again its better if you use a chase card that gives ur points. ur points transfer into sw & ba if you need it at that time. otherwise you have numerous other options to transfer to

Won't comment too much on the upcoming southwest devaluation, but if all he wants to do is fly around the US, 4.5/7.5/10/12.5k redemptions still can't be beat, IMO. And with amex's once lifetime on personal, 25k (ultimately 30k, let's assume) has better uses IME anD IMO. CSP does serve some of that purpose, too--another great card but requires a bit more work/knowledge. And the spend is less on SW and british

FYI, there have been no recent reports of success with Chase more than 2 cards in 30 days. I'll link to Clear thinker's solution of calling to recon after 10 days or so, having denial for same reason but no new pull, then call on day 31 and use same original pull and get approved.
Basically every time u call recon & they actually reconsider for u (which prompts them to send a new letter) then ur clock resets for another 30 days.
