Citi AA (50K points - used the link which doesnt really state the amount, risky but most people stated its ok) - Approved
Chase Ink Bold Business (50k points) - Pending decision
Amex Business Gold (75k points) - Approved
Barclays US Air (40k points) - Pending decision

A couple of questions - should i be proactive and call Barclays and Chase to find out the decision?
I would love to apply for one more decent size card (40-50k). Any ideas?

Thanks.
Chase UA, or Sapphire
AMEX personal Gold for another 50k MR

you didn't apply for any personal card from those two

You could apply for the NFL card that gives 400 cash back or the UA MP Explorer card with 55k Points?

Yes we do. We have a small Arts business (We are collectors ourselves but also sell to other people).

no need to wait then. Call them, they will ask you for your business info such as income levels and etc, and should be able to approve you.

Chase business reconsideration line (800-453-9719).

Does anyone know how i would know if i got the 50K miles offer or not? I used the link everyone talks about (without the offer amount). Is there a way to find out now that i am approved for that bonus?

They denied my app. They said the business was not open for too long (1 1/2 years).
I wonder if i should even apply for the Saphire now?
Can i do the 2 browser thing now for the Citi AA? i dont think so right

The citi two browser method seems dead now. However, you should apply for the Chase UA for 50k miles. Since it is a personal and not a business card, i think it should be approved.

It would suck if they dont approve that either. I think i might apply.

You should call again, people (including me) got business cards from Chase without having a business! In the application, I said my business is 1 year old with $100 income, and I've got instant approval. (It was SW though)

So i applied for the personal card. Again no decision. Called and they asked a few questions. Then said we need you to send us you Drivers license. So now i have to fax that to them. this is getting ridiculous.
