I went for 3 cards today and all are now approved. The first one was an INK BOLD business card due to several factors (feel free to e-Mail me for a link). First, it has 65,000 total points after the $5000 minimum spend. That works for my travel needs. Next it is a VISA card and the last one I had canceled was a MasterCard so I get the bonus points again. Thank you Chase very much. I did have to call the reconsideration line (800) 453-9719 and talk to a very nice rep and close down an old United card for approval. No problem don’t need that card anyway!
Next was a Discover it® card. Why not? There is no annual fee and there are many chances to get 5% cash back bonus deals. Just a good one to add. Instant approval.
The last one is the “other” Barclay’s Arrival card that is the Barclaycard Arrival(TM) World MasterCard® – Earn 1x on All Purchases . I already have the 2x for everything Arrival card but this one comes with 20,000 bonus points after just $1,000 in purchase in the first 90 days and it has NO annual fee. You do not get 2x for everything with this card but I do for travel and dining. As you can see, yes you CAN hold both cards at once. Instant approval.
So I am still 100% approval for all cards for as long as I can remember and have a nice new haul of points and perks to enjoy! – René
