Two new travel cards in the stable

I applied for two cards last night and got 'em both:

 

Chase Sapphire Preferred - $19,000 CL - 50,000 bonus points

Barclaycard Arrival Plus - $12,500 CL - 40,000 bonus points

 

Hope they get here quick so I can start working on that required spend!

 

All three scores over 800, and only about 1% utilization currently. Time to start planning a vacation!

Congrats, how did you get the Arrival Plus?  Word was they weren't accepting applications for it.  Been that way for a while.

Just went to the website and applied...I think I may have used an affiliate link from NerdWallet or someplace like that. It wasn't instant approval on that one, it said pending...but I called the recon line and found out they just needed to ask me a couple security questions...then she approved it on the spot.

I had a feeling those referral links might work, good to know, Smiley Very Happy
