Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  I wanted to give a special thank you to the members of the Front Range Travel Hackers meetup group in Denver.  I had a great time speaking with you guys on Saturday afternoon.  I have a few other posts about Denver, but today, I wanted to talk about my mini July App-O-Rama.  Last Wednesday, I applied for 2 new credit cards: the American Express Hilton Honors Business Credit Card and the Chase IHG Rewards Premier Credit Card.  Let’s talk about the first card now.
