Double Approval!

I waited out 30 days from my last Amex approval, and applied for the Premier Rewards Gold--approved! I got a targeted 50k MR points Offer, which I should easily hit with reimbursable spending for work. That's the best kind of bonus.

Also, I got an approval for a Barclaycard Wyndham Rewards Visa (not the VS or the AF one) for the discount on a Wyndham property on first purchase. Only $50, but with my partner's employee discount, it makes a 5 night stay only $130 in LA Smiley Very Happy

2017 has been excellent so far, but my INQs are way too high to do anything for the next 6-12 months. I've never liked the gardening idea--feels limiting, but probably a good idea after this little spree.
Payding down debt to prep for a mortgage.

Cards in my wallet: Amex Gold, Chase Sapphire Preferred, Lowes Advantage

Sock drawer: Lots of old store cards and not great no-rewards cards for history and utilization padding, some lame no AF cards I drunk-apped

Next Cards: AMEX Everyday and Chase Freedom?
