App Spree complete...off to the Garden!

Just wanted to say I'm so glad to have found this forum.  I've only been a member for a short while, but I've learned so much thanks to everyone!

 

Before joining MyFico:

- Discover Cashback Bonus - $5.1k

- BofA Platinum Plus MC - $2.4k

- BofA Platinum Plus Visa - $600

 

After joining MyFico:

- Discover IT - $6.1k (w/reduced APR!)

- BofA World MC Cash Rewards - $6k (w/reduced APR!)

- BofA Platinum Plus Visa Travel Rewards - $600

- Citi Thank You Premier Visa Sig (February) - APPROVED - $8.5k

- Chase Amazon Rewards (March) - APPROVED - $3k

- Citi Forward (May) - DECLINED

- AMEX SPG (May) - APPROVED - $13.5k

- Chase Freedom Visa Sig - APPROVED - $7k

- Chase Sapphire Preferred - APPROVED - $12k

 

Pretty annoyed with Citi's denial of the Forward card (attempted recon) since I wanted to couple it with the Thank You Premier, but that's why I ended up going with Chase. It seems most people on this forum say its the best tandem for any wallet!

 

Off to the garden for the foreseeable future!

If your looking for Amazon rewards you need to take a look at the Sallie Mae card(5% back).  It's backed by Barclay so wait until you are six months out from you last approval.

Re: App Spree complete...off to the Garden!

Thanks everyone!  I hope to be able to contribute to the forum and help others as everyone has helped me!  I think I'm equally addicted to the forum as I am to apping.  Anyone know the best way to monitor scores?  Is it actually through MyFico?  All I have right now is Credit Karma and Credit Sesame.
