Credit Cards

My Current Credit Card Applications

Most people that apply for credit cards for bonuses do so every 90 days. One of the best ways to do it is to pick one personal card and one business card per bank. However, not all the bonuses are extremely attractive to me at a given time, so I don’t always hit with that number of cards.

For this application series, I went with the following cards:

I decided to focus on some hotel point cards this round while still securing the Chase Sapphire Preferred bonus (while it is still available). I was immediately approved on the American Express Hilton HHonors card (in fact, I had the card in hand 18 hours later!), pending approval on the other three. Not something to worry about though, I was approved later on the Chase Sapphire Preferred and it looks good on the American Express SPG.

I will post reviews on these cards after I have played with them a but more! I do not receive commission on any of the cards except the American Express SPG Business.
