I Completed My 4 Credit Card July App-O-Rama (Sign Up Bonus Posting Details)

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  In mid July, I applied for 5 credit cards and was ultimately approved for 4 credit card in my July App-O-Rama.  Here are the credit cards and their sign up bonus details (listed in the order the sign up bonus posted):

  • American Express Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Card – spend $3,000 in 3 months and get 70,000 Delta SkyMiles
  • Wells Fargo Propel World Credit Card – spend $3,000 in 3 months and get 40,000 Wells Fargo GoFar Rewards Points
  • Banco Popular Avianca Vuela Credit Card – spend $1,000 in 3 months and get 60,000 Avianca LifeMiles
  • Citi Premier Credit Card – spend $4,000 in 3 months and get 60,000 Citi Thank You Points

I have had all of these credit cards before (with the exception of the American Express Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Card), so I will share my dates and churning details in this post.  I have also written about some of these sign up bonuses already, so I will link to those posts too.  Without further ado, let’s start with my American Express Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Card.

American Express Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Card

This was the quickest sign up bonus to post (with the miles posting 9 days after applying for this credit card).  I wrote more details of the quick sign up bonus here.  As of today, I haven’t used the Delta SkyMiles yet and do not have any immediate plans to use them.

Updated at 6:15pm PT on 7/23/19: I just got a letter today with my credit card PIN.  I added the letter to the bottom of this post.

My July App-O-Rama Credit Card Results (Spoiler: 4 out of 5 Approved)

Updated on 7/20/2019 at 8am: I added the Barclays rejection letter to the bottom of this post.


Good morning everyone, I hope your 2 day Prime Day shopping spree is going well.  Even though I didn’t buy much on the first day of Prime Day, I did pick up a few new credit cards.  My last App-O-Rama was in March, so I patiently waited 3+ months until my July App-O-Rama.  As a reminder, I was approved for 3 out of 4 credit cards in my March App-O-Rama, including the American Express Gold Card, the US Bank Altitude Reserve Visa Signature Credit Card, and the Wells Fargo Business Platinum Credit Card.  With those minimum spending requirements completed and the sign up bonuses redeemed, it was time to focus on these 5 credit cards.  Here is a quick summary of my July App-O-Rama:

  • Citi Premier Credit Card – instantly approved
  • American Express Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Card – pending, then approved (I called AMEX and had to close an old card to open up a credit card slot)
  • Barclay AAdvantage Aviator Business Credit Card – pending, then declined (too many recent inquiries)
  • Banco Popular Avianca Vuela Credit Card – instantly approved
  • Wells Fargo Propel World Credit Card – instantly approved (I called Wells Fargo to apply for this credit card over the phone)

Citi Premier Credit Card

I currently have a Citi Premier Credit Card that I have had for 4+ years, but I wanted to get another one since the sign up bonus is currently 60,000 Citi Thank You Points after spending $4,000 in 3 months.  If I was approved for a second Citi Premier Credit Card, my plan was to downgrade/convert my old Citi Premier Credit Card into a Citi Rewards+ Credit Card.

My Wells Fargo Business Platinum Credit Card Arrived & How to Add Card to Online Account

Good morning everyone.  A few days ago, I got a few letters from Wells Fargo which contained my new Wells Fargo Business Platinum Credit Card.  I applied for this credit card as part of my App-O-Rama at the end of March and was approved a few days after applying (I didn’t do anything other than wait for the approval).  I will show you the various letters I received from Wells Fargo and show you how to add the credit card to your Wells Fargo online account (it was not super obvious).  Here is the front and back of my new credit card.  I was expecting a metal card but it is made of plastic.  One cool thing about Wells Fargo is the ability to upload an image and have it printed on your credit card (more details below).
