Not much downside in applying for the BA card. If you get rejected, you can call Chase and they will likely move some of your credit line from the CO card to the new BA card so their total exposure to you stays the same. This has worked for me a few times with Chase.

lan does not charge YQ. If all else fails AA does not charge domestically nor it will it ever, so definitely not a total loss). Summer peak tickets are $400+ intracont, so definitely a good use of BA miles there. : )

Was the last 100,000 deal also with the annual fee waived.
Obviously $95 is acceptable for 100,000 miles but wondering if it is ever waived

Send a Chase a online message, and ask them to match the current offer.
People has had good luck to match the Continental card offer within 2 months.

I've used my BA miles for AA domestic trips and it's worked great!

Now the dilemma. I was going to take the in-laws to Europe in BC next year and use my miles. Now with this, I want them to contribute 200,000 miles.

Now to figure out a way for them to do this without letting the cat out of the bag.

I will do all the spending and pay the bill for them. I just need them for the card and the family account. They know I work the system but are very anti-credit card.

It doesn't help that the closest BA or AA airport is 3 hours away.

The ad is live on ba.com. I applied in 2009 and got 20K miles. I cancelled it 2 months back. Not sure If have a chance now.

"This one-time bonus offer is valid only for first-time cardmembers with new accounts. Previous and existing cardmembers/accounts are not eligible for this bonus offer."


Just read the T&C. I guess no love for us existing cardholders. What a sad day!

I'm pretty new to the FT game, nevermind signing up for credit cards. I did do the last awesome AA credit card round up and ended up with 2 personals and 1 business and 2 personals for my wife. Thinking of applying for this one...

So if we both get cards for 100K miles, just look at the AA partner award chart ( http://www.aa.com/i18n/disclaimers/a...rtnerChart.jsp ) and we can use their miles on AA flights with no issues by calling up someone?

In essence we get 100K "AA" miles that don't count towards lifetime or anything, but can be used as if they are "AA" nonetheless for domestic or international travel for the price of $75 + $2,500 spend in 3 months...

Thanks for the help!
