Re: Two successes (BCP & Freedom)

I have applied... but I've been declined due to too many new accounts this year (two new autos, several new cards, a total over 15 INQs).  The CSR told me my internal AMEX risk score was too high and to wait until my INQs drop and reapply.  It's the last card I actually WANT in my collection.  The others (AMEX TrueEarnings, CapOne Venture, CapOne Cash Rewards, and Discover More) will have to come after I close on my house.


AmEx PRG (NPSL) | AmEx Costco ($8.2K) | AmEx Delta Gold ($19.3K) | AmEx BCE ($5K) | Chase United Explorer ($10K) | Chase Sapphire Preferred ($7.5K) | Chase Freedom ($8.2K) | Discover it ($3K) | Capital One Quicksilver ($2.5K) | PayPal Extras ($2.5K) | Lowes ($3.3K) | Walmart ($4.3K) | Amazon ($2.5K) | Restoration Hardware ($8.8K) | Crate & Barrel ($8.3K)

Chase trifecta.

 

Checking gets you 10pts/transaction on freedom. Points transferred to CSP are worth 20% more [for travel :smileywink: ]

Re: Two successes (BCP & Freedom)

slightly off topic--its a 20% discount on Ultimate Rewards Travel. That makes your points worth 25% more. Its an inverse relationship. If they were worth 20% more, then the signup bonus would say the 40,000 bonus points($400 normally) are worth $480 instead of $500.
