I got 55,000 miles + $50 by applying here and asking for 25K more miles to match the 50K offer.
YMMV as for some they've taken back the $50.

I wish many of these deals would stop using Chase - they don't like me!   :(

That's what's been said, do you have an exclusive scoop? ;)

Hopefully it'll beat the 100k BA...

That's the timeframe they gave me last week.
But in the past they've cancelled these things, so don't hold your breath.

hmmm. i was recently approved for the CO 50k and for the BA but without the 100k bonus. (total 20k line) there's no way they'll approve another card (as it is i had to push the CO through recon). i was going to shut the ba. now i figure i should wait a few days.
is there any way they'll 'convert' my BA to this new app?
or do i have to apply, get declined, then have recon convert it?

My wife applied for the BA and UA , pushed through the BA but the UA was declined. I was waiting until I activate the BA card before I try to push for the UA. I guess I should wait . If anyone thinks otherwise ( get more cards to trade in to get others approved?) Let me know . Thanks

Dan, thank you for the feedback. Just to be clear, are these the best offers broken down by issuer?

Amex Platinum 75/100K using 3882 or 5748 should this be a phone app, so you know what you are trying for.

Chase Hyatt 2 nights or Continental 50K

Citi-- Still 75k for AA card?

Thinking of trying the 3 browser method for the first time, what should I go for?

Most recently received the Venture & BA cards. From the above issuers, I have 1 Citi, 2 Chase and too many (7) Amex cards, and need to cancel some. 

Please excuse all the questions; Im still a newbie to this game.
Shabbat Shalom,
Eli
