That didn't take long.


I'm not concerned about killing it as it's a one-off limited time thing.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Huh? What is wrong with people? While I wouldn't take advantage of this, what is this guy thinking?

Amazing!! Any chance you can include a best card per category post. For example best card for groceries, gas, utilities etc... obviously gets tricky with rotating categories but perhaps leaving those out...

Normally I proofread these for free but this one is a little too long  :)
I will say that it behooves you to at least give a quick rundown of other banks sign up rules, not just chase. Amex, Citi, BoA, Cap One all have very different rules and they're quite complicated at this point. If you want this to be the complete guide to CC's I think you should at least link to DoC's post on each issuer's rules if not write them out yourself. (Unless they're there already and I missed it scrolling through this monster post?)
Also, no Barclay's mentioned? With 6/24 pretty much in effect, they're the logical bank to go to after Chase to at least get one card. (BoA also has 6/12, 2/12 although that's more manageable.)

  Didn't have a chance to go through the whole post ,but from what I came across in the beginning it's so far amazing.
 
  Just on the point where you meantioned business CC, I hold you should speak it out a bit more explaining; that if you don't write your full legal name as you're writing on the application then you will most probably have difficulties getting the application approved, unless you're going to verify the business name and pay money to add that name as a verified business..
   There's been so many reports where people would just apply with their name and then for the business use another name and hope for the best, if they get a proper warning ahead of time, meaning they're advised against it before hand then hopefully we won't be hearing about such mistakes.
   You do bold that piece of advice, but I hold it should be forewarned and elaborated a bit more,  to avoid confusion.
  As your well written post does contain alot about the business card and how someone with a simple bussiness can open one, then the very least that you can do is give a proper warning and avoid the need for a 2nd pull because of a silly mistake which unfortunately is a common mistake amongst those who don't have a legit business name and are running a sole proprietorship.

{ Itís important to just write your own name as the business name if you are just applying for your own small business as a Sole Proprietorship that doesnít have any business paperwork.}
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

There are some more minutia when it comes to BoA approvals than what you added, I'll try to write it up later but you can check DoC, he has a pretty good post on it. Also I would include bonus rules for Citi and BoA.
