So, haven't been apping since with an exception. One month ago was shopping on Amazon and was offered a $70 gift card with approval of the Amazon Chase Visa. Apped and approved for 3k. Recently renewed my Costco card and the next day apped online for the Citi Costco Anywhere Visa. Approved for 4k. Back in September, Amex trippled my limit from 2k to 6k. Also, refinanced my car (4/6 years remaining) at 2.19% and will save a ton on interest.
I'm glad.I didn't wait on the refinance for my car and although my scores have taken a hit here and there, the Costco Anywhere Visa was a big win and very coveted card for me.
I've recently taken advantage of the Chase total checking mail offer $300 bonus coupon and with having the Freedom card and now Amazon visa, it'll be useful to have for quick payments.
Last things, I haven't used the grocery benefits as much as anticipated with the Amex Blue Cash Preferred so I think I'll be downgrading to the one without a fee. I really have nothing I need until the Sapphire Preferred at this point. So much for gardening since May, but wanted to share the progress.
