Due to this, I didn’t earn as many miles & points in 2017 as I have in previous years. In fact, my totals have been going down each year. Continue reading 30,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards Points For Opening Checking Account
In June 2016 I tried to get a retention offer on my Chase Ink Bold card.
I didn’t want to pay the $95 fee but I did love the ability to earn 5X points on spend at office supply stores and on cable and cell phone bills. I failed to receive an offer so I went ahead and closed my account. Continue reading Did I Receive A Chase Ink Bold Retention Offer?
A little over a year back I had reconsideration line success. After a lengthy call, I was approved for the United MileagePlus Explorer card.
After completing the minimum spend to earn the 50,000 miles bonus, I pretty much put the card away. The only time that I use the card is for car rentals since the United MileagePlus Explorer card offers primary rental auto coverage.
The $95 annual fee recently posted so I had an important decision to make- should I keep the card or close it? Continue reading Did I Get A Retention Offer for the Chase United MileagePlus Explorer Card?
The holidays are fast approaching and one of the biggest shoppings days of the year, Black Friday is just a week away.

In the middle of March I was really psyched to have Reconsideration Line Success for the Chase United Explorer card.
After receiving mailers quite a few times for a 50,000 miles bonus offer for the United Explorer card, I decided to apply. I was told that I’d get a decision within 30 days. A letter came that I was denied but I was able to call in and get approved. (Check out the link above for more details.)
I’ve since spent more than the required $2,000 spend and have been expecting the bonus miles to post pretty soon.
When I got home from work last night, I had a mailer from Chase which at first looked like a piece of junk but it actually contained some very bad news. Continue reading Chase Mails Mistake Scare About United Explorer Card Bonus
I recently got approved for the Chase United Explorer credit card (after calling in to the reconsideration line).
I’ll earn 55,000 bonus miles once I hit the $2,000 spend within the first three months. (The card came with a 50K offer and I will also earn an addition 5K due to adding an authorized user.
While the miles were the reason that I signed up for the card, for a limited time I can also earn entries for a chance to win a trip to the 2016 Rio Olympics.

The offer kept coming and I was enticed to apply for a new card from Chase but I resisted until a month back.
For quite some time I’d been receiving a mailer (or e-mail) to apply for the Chase United Credit Card. I’ve had the card in the past but I felt that it was better to wait.
Then I got the bug. With all kinds of chatter about new rules related to getting approved for Chase cards, I felt I might as well apply for the United card through one of these targeted offers. Continue reading Reconsideration Line Success: Chase United Credit Card
The $95 fee recently came up for one of my favorite credit cards, the Chase Ink Plus so I had a tough decision to make… Should it stay or should it go? My options were to cancel or try to keep my card.
If I closed my account, it wouldn’t really be the biggest deal since I still currently have an Ink Bold. The Bold offers the same 5X points benefits at office supply stores and cell phone & other telecom bills.
Back in November I wrote about a crazy expensive Chase IHG Rewards Club Anniversary Free Night we weren’t booking.
With Kim’s anniversary free night expiring, this led us to book an unnecessary (and expensive) night at the Intercontinental Times Square. I used my anniversary free night recently at Holiday Inn Express Charleston Downtown. Continue reading IHG, Thanks For Letting Me Know
Back in 2013 I signed up for the Chase Sapphire Preferred card for the second time. I received a very solid 55,000 points (50K sign-up + 5K for adding an authorized user) as a signup bonus.
A couple of weeks back the steep $125 annual membership fee showed up on my monthly statement.
This left me needing to make an important call. Continue reading Chase Sapphire Preferred Retention Offer?
