Chase also bundled Priority Pass with all three of these cards, Collinson cannot ship the membership cards timely, and Chase inexplicably opted out of the electronic version which would have made this much less important. Another misjudgement.
In part, Chase could have really stuck it to Amex and Citi if they had executed everything 100%. Still, I think you don't acknowledge just how much good pub this has given Chase in the mainstream, compared to all of us whiners here on FT (me especially) fretting about whether we'll get approved and when the card will get here. It may be flawed, but the net result will be huge for Chase, IMO.

I think they can already tell, if people are rotating any balances to chase the 100k bonus. They'll know far in the advance. Any amount of bonus and benefits has to pale in comparison to the interest paid to Chase. I certainly hope so, given that I don't want the card to be nerfed in the near future.
