Now I definitely got something, all related to Chase of course.
First of all, getting approved for the Ritz Carlton card and getting expedited shipping on that so I was able to test out that bad boy of a card days before Christmas. Currently trying to meet the sign up bonus on it and even got reimbursed for some airline related purchases I made. Pretty sweet deal. I'm probably keeping that card beyond the first year and using it regularly because despite the annual fee, it comes with a lot of benefits that make up for it anyway (it's even less of an AF than the Amex Plat for example) and I have my eye on the Chase Mariott Premier card next year too.
Also, Chase let me move my SW card's (a card that I mainly got to get my foot in the door with chase, I'm doing the same thing with my Amex Gold Delta Skymiles card next year) limit over to my AARP and I was able to close it out, so I got a new high credit limit from that. I'm probably not doing that again in the future though because I don't want Chase to think that I have a repeated pattern of churning and close all of my accounts because of that and a more usable card that I love to use regularly. I will still move CLs around but not close accounts with them for sure, especially AF products. That was something I had learned after doing that so that's giving me a lot of motivation to be more careful in the future.
The final Chase related present I got was an extra 1000 points as a result of messaging SM two times about seeing if they could waive my AF on the Ritz since I saw that someone over at MyFico was able to get theirs waved that way. I didn't get it waived but that's what they gave me to compensate. Sometimes if you really want to play, you have to pay.
