And actually taking an HP for a strict CLI would actually be preferable to one for a new account unless the new account is actually beneficial to you, since a new account has both an HP and a decrease in AAoA.
I can see where you're coming from. All the accounts I've applied for with Chase have had some benefit to me in some way though, whether it be some really good sign up bonus on the Ritz and airline reimbursements too on that card, the kind of rewards I get from restaurants and gas alone on the AARP, the chance to start racking up UR points with the CSP and later on getting the Freedom and racking up even more UR points through that.
Even the card I initially got as a way to get my foot in the door with Chase had some benefit in the fact that I got over 25,000 Southwest Airlines miles from it that even after closing the card I can still use in the future if I wanna go on some kind of flight somewhere through Airtran or something.
