As I’ve said in the past, I go pretty light when it comes to my wife’s app-o-ramas. The last one was back in March 2016 where she went 3 out of 5 (3 out of 3 if you exclude the Chase apps.)
Citi Hilton Reserve – Approved instantly
I got this card so we can redeem it for 2 nights in the Seychelles. That’s it. That’s all this card is good for. I’ve spent the $2500 to get the 2 night certificates already. I’ll charge the $10K to get the free night and sock drawer the card.
US Bank Flexperks – Approved with letter in mail
I decided to get this card for the travel rewards. I didn’t WANT this card; I just ran out of options.
Capital One Spark – Approved with letter in email
I actually applied for both the Spark and Spark Miles back to back. The Miles application was rejected due to it being a duplicate, similar to my app-o-rama. We later got the Spark in the mail. I’ve met the min spend on it already. With my Spark and Citi DC, I don’t see myself putting too much spend on it since we have the CL bandwidth on my 2 cards already. Can’t say no to a free $500.
I didn’t do any Barclays this go-round (banned) or any Chase (after the 2 rejections last time, I’ll let this one rest.) I didn’t do any AMEX either since she already has 5 AMEX credit cards, and I didn’t see any charge cards that I wanted to get. I wanted to get a Discover Miles, but she hasn’t hit a full year since last applying for the It. I thought about maybe doing a Comenity VX, but I wanted to lay low for a while before getting some BoA cards in a couple of months here.
