Not sure where to post this as it straddles two providers. I am narrowing my choices down and believe I want to focus on:
AMEX Blue Cash Preferred
Chase Sapphire Preferred
AMEX Gold Premier Rewards or AMEX Platinum
This will add a total of 3 cards to the wallet but based on usage should cover the profile quite nicely.
I am still in two minds on the Plat, love the perks but if only it had the gold rewards this is almost leading me to sign up for both, crazy I know
AMEX if you are listening how about gold reward and plat perks on one plat card ?
So my questions are:
1) Based on the above and no affiliation currently with either provider what should the strategy be on application. Apply for all on one day, space it out, do Chase then AMEX etc ?
2) With regards to the 25k points on Gold and Plat I was reading that this has been the lowest sign up to date, any idea when these public sign up offers may change ?
3) With regards to BCP if my wife signs up for her own card would that effectively allow you the 6% on $6k groceries each, i.e. up to $12k total but of course on separate accounts ?
