Definitely BS.  I was told the same thing when I closed a Virgin Atlantic card with them that had been open for a year, they're either manipulative or uninformed but either way the miles haven't gone anywhere.

Not complete BS. They are referring to miles not yet posted to your account from the current months spending (if you have any). that you will forfeit when you close a account.

If it posted to your Alaska millage account then they won't claw back.

wow, never thought of applying for multiple cards at the same time.  you guys are genius!

applied for 4 of these over ~1.5 years.  usually slotted this in when i do my app-o-rama and don't have anything to add. 

all 4 were approved with $5k+ limit except one.  i called recon to transferred some limit from another card and then upgraded and got miles. 

now i am thinking maybe i should try to apply for 2 at some point!

it was good when you could downgrade to BBR cards which I can basically get $120 / yr for free.  I haven't seen a success story of downgrading any boa card to bbr anymore since Feb.  I called 5 times and chatted 2 times and gave up and cancelled my AS cards. 

anyway, keep up with good work guys!   8) 8) 8)

Do you mean you can not downgrade to BBR any more? That is what I plan to do.

Correct. You can still downgrade to other no AF cards.

What is stopping someone for just continuing to apply and moving credit in order to gain approval? I just applied for 2, rejected for both, called recon and moved cl from other card and approved for both (separate calls). Theoretically I could just apply for more and continue to move credit until I have none left, and then just start cancelling on order to free up credit. The actual approval process seemingly means nothing. What am I missing? just the fact that they would flag you if its too excessive?
