Should I try for a 3rd (or 4th) Chase card?
« on: November 09, 2017, 08:18:42 PM »
Long-term goal: a couple international trips - one likely Dec 2019-Jan 2020 to Aus/NZ and one later in 2020 to Europe. Not worried about hotels really as the first trip will likely involve camping/hostels, etc. and Europe will be gasthaus or B&B kind of thing.

I'm currently 0/24 and just signed up and was approved tonight for Chase Sapphire Preferred and Chase Ink Business Preferred cards. I know I'll have one more pull for US Bank soon, which would put me at 2/24 since they don't count business against you supposedly. From what I understand of the 2/30 rule, I can apply for a 2nd personal card now and would prefer to do that tomorrow so perhaps it won't be a second hard pull. Irregardless of that, are there any other Chase cards I SHOULD get soon since I'd effectively be blocked out of them until just before I'd need the points? I was thinking either the British Airways or United. BA seems like the better deal.

Unrelated question, but can I combine personal and business cards in the online account I created during the business card signup?

BA (and AA) have outrageous fees for their award tickets. United fees are minimal.

Interesting. BA seems well regarded at http://www.travelmiles101.com though they do mention the fuel surcharges for traveling to Europe.
