Well not me, but my wife that is. As I talked about before, and every blogger on the planet will tell you soon, the spend required for the INK BOLD should move from $5000 to $10,000 to get the 50,000 Ultimate Reward points ! (below is what you see if you go direct to the Chase site and look for the card)
So today became a mini-app day for my wife. She has never had the INK BOLD card so we went for it. We got the standard thanks for the application as almost no one gets an instant approval and will have to call to follow up to verify and get the final OK (1-800-453-9719 is the number to call btw). Sometimes you have to move come credit lines around to get the job done and approved. We are ready to do that as well as the SW Air card can go if need be.
The other cards she went for were the CiTi Hilton HHonors 40,000 point card and the Bank of Hawaii 35,000 that will also become Hilton points (70,000) later on.
I will be sure to update the bog & let you know how it goes. Her credit score was a nice 764 pre-round so all looks good!
As always, know your credit and treasure your credit score and standing. These can be your keys to enjoy vacations you never though you could afford! – Rene (my link below and thank you for supporting the blog!)
EDIT: Update on round so far from today. My wife called right away to reconsideration line with Chase and was approved by closing the SW AIR card and taking some credit line from Freedom Card! Also approved on Bank of Hawaii card. Only the Citi to go for perfect 3 for 3 and 100% for all apps for the year. It looks like another year with 1 million+ points is on the way!
