So, even though I said my previous Ritz Carlton approval end of October was going to be my last app, I got a mailer from Chase for 50K bonus miles for the Chase Mileage Plus Explorer after a $2K spend in 3 months. Tossed it around in my head for a few days and said, I have been flying United a lot the last few years and using my Amex PLAT or Arrival+ WEMC, probably time to pull the trigger, so I did.
Saturday applied and got the 7-10 day message and got a call just now to verify some info and they approved me for $27K. Funny thing is, all my CRs are frozen, I checked just now and confirmed that TU, EQ and EX are frozen, so wonder how they did approve, unless either using the last pull from end of October for the Ritz Carlton or a soft pull or maybe both?
In any event, this will come in handy for my Xmas trip out to Tahoe for 2 weeks!!
This call took place about 15 mins ago, logged into my chase account and see it it already there!
Fantastic approval, merlin! Congratulations
