Good morning everyone, I hope your week is going well. A few weeks ago, I wrote about My 6 Credit Card App-O-Rama: Results & Reconsideration Calls. In that post, I talked about my instant approval for the Barclays AAdvantage Aviator Red Credit Card that currently has a 75,000 American Airlines Miles sign up bonus after adding an authorized user and making a single purchase on your card and the authorized user card. I love these type of sign up bonuses since it doesn’t get much easier than that! But then I wondered, how long would it take for the sign up bonus to post to my America Airlines AAdvantage account? In this post, I will lay out the timeline of events so you know what to expect when you are waiting for your 75K AA Miles to post.
Good afternoon everyone, happy Friday! A few weeks ago, I applied for 6 new credit cards in my most recent App-O-Rama (which doesn’t work as well as it used to work, back in the good ol’ days), but I wanted to share my results and reconsideration calls. Warning: I don’t recommend applying for multiple cards in the same day (“do as I say, not as I do”). With that said, I started with the American Express Blue Business Plus Credit Card that has a 75,000 American Express Membership Rewards Points signup bonus after spending $15,000 in 12 months. Check out this Doctor of Credit post for more info.
Good morning everyone. We all know the classic Capital One line, “What’s in your wallet?” (spoiler alert: no Capital One Credit Cards are currently in my real wallet), but I thought it would be fun to do this type of post monthly or every other month, depending on which credit cards I am currently using. At last count, I currently have 40+ personal and business credit cards, but I don’t carry or use every credit card every month. I treat my credit cards like tools in a tool box, each credit card has a specific use and no credit card is perfect for every situation. I also have 3 “wallets” for my credit cards: the physical cards that I carry with me in my iPhone case, the credit and debit cards in my ApplePay Wallet, and the credit cards in my travel wallet (aka backpack) that I use when I travel. I will go through my 3 “wallets”, but the cards in my ApplePay Wallet and travel wallet (aka backpack) don’t change very often.

Last week, I was approved for the Chase Ink Business Preferred Credit Card that currently offers a sign up bonus of 100,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards Points after spending $8,000 in 3 months. I am meeting the minimum spend on this credit card by paying for a few home improvement projections, car insurance, and any other large purchase that will get me closer to my $8,000 minimum spending requirement. I don’t have immediate plans for these 100K Chase Ultimate Rewards Points, but I can always use more Chase Ultimate Rewards Points.
Good afternoon everyone. I went down a deep rabbit hole that started with an email from Wells Fargo and ended with me finding details of Paze – a new digital wallet service from Zelle’s parent company (Early Warning Services). Follow me down the rabbit hole as I explain more about Paze. The journey began when I received this email from Wells Fargo about updates to the Online Access Agreement. I clicked the link to view the Summary of Changes to see if there was anything noteworthy.
Good afternoon everyone, I hope your week is going well. I just received this email from Barclays regarding a referral program that is available to Barclays Wyndham Rewards credit card members (only personal credit cards are currently eligible, no business cards yet). You can refer friends to the Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Credit Card (no annual fee) and Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Plus Credit Card ($75 annual fee). If they apply and are approved before June 30, you will receive 15,000 Wyndham Rewards Points per referral, with a 45,000 point yearly cap.
