Good morning everyone, I hope your weekend is going well. A few days ago, I wrote My October 2020 Credit Card App-O-Rama Results. In that post, I wrote about my experience applying and getting approved for 2 business credit cards: Bank of America Alaska Airlines Business Credit Card and American Express Delta SkyMiles Gold Business Credit Card. In today’s post, I will talk about my wife’s application and approval process for the Chase Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card. When Laura applied 2 weeks ago, the sign up bonus was for 5 free night certificates (up to 50,000 Marriott Bonvoy Points per night) after spending $5,000 in 3 months. Unfortunately, that offer ended on October 28.
According to my calculations, Laura had a Chase score of 3/24, so I assumed she would be instantly approved for this credit card. Unfortunately, that was not the case. Here is what I learned about the approval process and how she was able to get approved for the new credit card.
