Which 10 Credit Cards am I Considering for my March App-O-Rama?

Good morning everyone, happy Thursday.  My last App-O-Rama (where I applied for several new credit cards at the same time) was back in mid December 2016.  I usually wait 3+ months between App-O-Ramas, so the time has come to start my next round of credit card applications.  I am going to list the credit cards I have in mind in the order in which I will probably apply for them.  If you have any feedback on my strategy or think I am missing or applying for the wrong credit cards, please leave a comment below. Without further ado, let’s begin…

1. American Express SPG Business Credit Card – 25,000 SPG points after spending $5,000 in 90 days and an additional 10,000 SPG points after spending $3,000 in 120 days.  No annual fee the first year, then $95 in the second year.

With the impending merger with Marriott, this might be my last opportunity to apply for the SPG business credit card.  I can’t pass up this opportunity. 35,000 SPG points are worth ~$700 in hotel nights and airfare (and possibly much more).

2. Bank of America MERRILL+ Credit Card – 50,000 points after spending $3,000 in 90 days.  No annual fee.

Doctor of Credit reports that you can apply for this credit card over the phone.  50,000 points is worth $500 cash or up to $1,000 toward airfare. Continue reading

60,000 LifeMiles Posted After My First Avianca Vuela Credit Card Purchase

Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend.  Last month, I was instantly approved for the Avianca Vuela Credit Card and wrote PSA: Call to Activate Avianca Vuela Credit Card & Confirm 60K LifeMiles Sign Up Bonus.  A few days ago, my Avianca Vuela Credit Card statement closed and I was excited to see the 60,000 LifeMiles from the signup bonus.  Unfortunately, my LifeMiles account number was not listed on my credit card statement and I did not input a LifeMiles account number on the credit card application when I applied for the credit card.  I called the customer service number on the back of the credit card to find out what LifeMiles account number was linked to my credit card.  After answering a few security questions, the rep gave me my LifeMiles account number.  Now, I just needed to log into my LifeMiles account to see if the 60,000 LifeMiles posted to my account.
