Does anyone know which credit bureau the inquiry goes through? I recently did a couple Citi AAdvantage and the Chase Amtrak within the past 2 weeks which all hit Experian - probably not worth pushing my luck with another one if it is Experian.

Wow - I am kicking myself for applying for the CO Visa from Chase not 2 days ago to get Mileathon credit....would have much preferred this deal. :-/ And who knows if I'm even going to get approved for it - got the BA card in Nov, and upon applying, I got the 7-10 days response....

United miles expire after 18 months of inactivity. However, activity on the account is very easy to generate (eg, by buying a song on iTunes through the Online Mall), and will extend the miles for another 1.5 years.

Thanks op, I just applied. I was waiting for a good offer, and this is pretty good. The only negative is that it's $1 per mile spend so not as good as some of the other chase united cards which gives more miles per $ spend on united and other categories (groceries, etc.).

Signed up this evening (after calling to cancel 2 tickets) -- asked if they had a credit card promo and was told they did and xfer'ed to the right area.

Took my info, 1 minute hold, and then was approved (left out the 10min of verbal description of the card, terms, and opting out of the add-on protection plan).

Easy enough. Thanks FT!

I just applied. I didn't get an instant approval, but I hope my card is approved (first year fee waived) and that I get the 50k miles. I got the BA card from late last year, so I don't quite meet the once-card-every-6 months-rule yet. Still, I read that there are exceptions to the rule, so I hope it's the same for me. I guess I'll find out in two weeks!

I applied. Thanks OP. Interestingly, one of the myriad conditions read to me during my signup call was that I could be denied any bonus offers if I am found to have a history of using Chase cards solely for bonus offers Who on earth would do such a thing?

I almost laughed out aloud hearing this phrase.

By the way, I was instantly approved (hooray!) and I had gotten my BA-Chase about five months ago.

PS. The call center was located in Cebu, Philippines.

That's where the Chase's outsourced script monkey call center is located.

I was instantly approved, but my spouse wasn't. I am a bit worried now.
