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.
Bonus rules are listed by each card.
I don't think every detail is required, especially when they aren't all hard and fast rules. Post is too long as it is, no?

I would at least add BoA 2/12 rule, can't get approved if you've opened 2 cards in the past 12 months. Changes to 6/12 if you have a deposit account with BoA as all of these rules should go into how and when you apply for cards at different banks. (Need personal account to get approved for personal cards and business account to get approved for biz cards)

I guess I just didn't read it closely enough to see the bonus rules by each card

ETA: Yes, post is too long IMO, I think it makes more sense to have a series of posts with a master post linking to each post.

77 revisions. Pretty sure that's a new record.
Is it a record for the longest post?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Seriously speaking though, incredible post. I'm scared to know how many hours went into writing it.
We know at least it started from July7 2019
And so far 4 months!

 Too bad there's no like button for that Ms post!

Heading there now..
   And seriously this is really a great post.
 So many people have asked me in the past what where why and now now I have one solid post to refer them to, so in a way it's a good thing that it's one long post instead of being 30 different links which will turn off people.

 Thanks Dan for all your time put forth for this post. And of course all your other post's.
  Never bothered reading about lifemiles untill recently, but boy are there some great rewards to close in on. Thanks for that as well. Keep up the amazing work of yours!
  And I'm sure jj helps out every here and there for such post's.

"Change/Cancellation fees should be capped at a percentage of the fare."
I think you"ll never get a max fee, AND a max percent, whichever is lower...

"Add Passenger Rights Regulations"
this should be done, regardless of the bailouts.

Thoughts on going forward with a post like this?
More good than harm or more harm than good?

Any proofreaders around?
