My wife is a credit card producing machine. She went four for four with three instant approvals and some very nice credit lines.
The Fairmont card approval (instant) in conjunction with my approval gives us a nice freebie four day (I like that new term: Freebie Four Day) No annual fee first year, easy to reach minimum spend. Oh yeah.
Bank of America Virgin Atlantic card for 50K miles or the conversion (yep) to 100K Hilton Honors points. We had to call on this one but it was an easy approval and an $18,000 credit line (I get $5K to $10K if I’m lucky)
Citi Hilton card no annual fee, 40K points (I couldn’t get the 50K link to work?) instant approval.
Hilton Amex card again was an instant approval, with no annual fee $750 minimum spend and 40K points.
With all the Hilton Honors points we’ve got, we will be hitting a couple VIP reduced awards and an AXON award or two as well. I seem to have some sort of lifetime Hilton Gold status that I got some how?? I earned it with a Surpass card but that has been three years ago now and it just keeps renewing. I’m not meeting the minimum stays or spend on any Hilton card. Maybe Hilton likes me just as much as Citi doesn’t?
YOU Can Do This – You can earn free hotel nights and airline tickets if you take care of your credit; drop me a line for some suggestions and get in the game at a level YOU are comfortable with.
For the life of me, I can’t understand why more people don’t join us in a world of travel at prices we all can afford?
Next up is the September application day, US Airways Grand Slam this fall, and any other promos that show this Summer. Katy and I have our miles and points ready. Do You?
