I was on the fence if I would be approved for this card since I had been approved for Barclaycard Arrival, Amex BCP, and Cap1 Venture card last month. The only reason why I was intrigued is solely for the 100k bonus. I figured I didn't have any other cards in sight for the near future, so if I apply and don't get approved no sweat. I have the main 3 cards I wanted anyway.
I applied online and was told I had to call in immediately. All they wanted to know was if I wanted to add my cell phone # to the application! I stated that the number already listed on the app is my cell phone # :smileyhappy:
She then asked what I was thinking for a credit limit. Since my Cap1 is $5k, I just threw out that number. She asked if higher would be OK and I said absolutely! She placed me on hold and came back with $7,500!
All other cards will be on hold for the next 3 months or until I meet the $10k spending limit threshold (whichever comes first.)
I am going to New York (JFK) in May, so the airport lounge access will be nice there. However, I will be closing the card/or downgrading the card come February, 2015, since $450 annual fee is way too expensive. Not sure if these card companies try to get you to stay and sweeten the deal... but I would possibly think about staying if they threw in some kind of incentive. This is my first card with airport lounge access.
