BOA alaska is a candidate. But it is difficult to accumulate huge amount of alaska miles. My mileage and hotel accounts usually have half a million points.

AME: I have fly delta for 3 years and do not know how to use 50k miles in my account. I have no interest in sky peso.

BCE/BCP? Is that blue? 6K limit for 6%? Not worth a hard pull.

barclays, I wait for them...I like its virgin american card.
You could get the AMEX HH surpass upgrade. Nets 50k pts + more pts awarded in certain categories - with no hard pull.

Add some biz cards. Lots of opportunity there.

I've gotten at least 15 cards over the past year and my TU score is 771. I'm 23 and single. I have a total of ~20 cards outstanding. Just FYI.

You also want to be careful, some banks routinely soft pull your report and they may not like what they see and might take some adverse actions. Just keep that in mind

If you insist, you can wait as long as you want. Currently you can get 2 50K Plat AA cards per 65 days. Much more on this in the AA card thread.

Also the Blue Cash Preferred is worth another look. The 6,000/6% cap is per calendar year, so if you get it now through the cardmatch.com $250 bonus offer and max out the 6K spend this year and again next year before the fee is due, that is a ~$900 card.

That's why all my DL flights go to AS. Miles are much more valuable.

Although, I do think you should wait to get more offers, I will suggest looking at Discover. People really like it for shopping portal bonuses and category spending bonuses.

I'm in the same boat.

Nothing good left for me.

I'm biding my time by churning the Citi Hilton, and waiting for the 70,000 point Marriott offer...
