Annual fee is waived for the first year, though.
I applied for a Chase Ink! Bold today for the 50,000 bonus UR points. With both EQ and EX frozen, they pulled TU, which is my best looking report, and approved a $5k flexible limit.
The reason I applied for the card was twofold - I wanted the bonus and the ability to earn major points using the Vanilla Reload/Amex Bluebird (hereinafter V/B) combo for an upcoming trip to Europe; and, I wanted to keep business expenses separated from personal. The bonus categories are very complementary to my other cards. Airport lounge access is a nice perk.
But the V/B combo is killer. I can now get 5x points for paying rent and utilities where I couldn't before. That alone is an extra 6000 points a month - 72,000 a year - for money I'm already spending.
I'm thinking keep it for a year, PC to the Classic before the fee hits, and apply for the Plus for a new bonus.
