DW has been picking more travel locations for us lately, and I've been noticing that the places she picks tends to have Hyatt locations fairly close (I pretty much only choose Marriott properties normally). I figured why not apply for the Hyatt card, and worst case scenario, if I'm not happy with the hotels or stop seeing a value in it, I can always roll the limit into my Ritz card (or whatever card I end up having with Chase at the end of the Marriott / SPG combination). I applied via the mobile website and was instantly approved for $19,000 @ 21.24%. They pulled EX (715 - 9 INQs) and TU (736 - 13 INQs). AAoA is 2.2 years. Oldest account is 6.2 years. My last inquires on EX and TU were 6 months ago for the Ritz card. I have two new accounts in the last 6 months, Ritz and SPG, but a whole pile of new accounts before that... the majority of them will hit their one year mark by May. My income is around $95k. My Ritz card is at $14.5k.
**EDIT** I received my card in the mail today, and my CARS is 751. I wish I remember what my CARS was when I got the Ritz, and I'm too lazy to dig through paperwork.
Congrats. Nice Score
Way to go! Congratulations on your new card. Nice SL to boot!!
