I even got approved for an Ink Plus and Ink Cash card on the same call to Reconsideration by proactively offering to shift over part of the credit line from another card and now I have all 4 Ink cards.
That bumped me up to 8 active Chase consumer cards and 5 active Chase business cards that I am the primary cardholder on. Can anyone here top that?
Anyway I wrote a secure message on Chase.com to please match my Plus card so that I only need to spend $5,000 instead of $10,000 and first I got back a message asking for an invitation code. I wrote back that this is a public offer and that I would like a supervisor to respond to the secure message and they had no problem offering me the 50,000 points even if I only spend $5,000. So if you applied within the last few months for the Ink Bold or Plus card go ahead and get matched if you want a $5K hurdle instead of a $10K hurdle. And don’t be afraid to ask for a supervisor to respond to the message if needed.
Same goes if you applied for a Southwest card in the past 3 months and didn’t get 50,000 points.
