Okay, so it’s not the Chase Sapphire Reserve, yaddah yaddah yaddah. But I am sharing the news of my Gold approval for two reasons: 1)It marks the beginning of the end of the good days with Citi. I just got approved for the Citi Exec for 60k miles and the top off from this card will give me another 25k miles. With the SPG transfer bonus offer where I received 30k for transferring 20k, I am back in business with AA (at least for one more flight). Now I can’t apply for another Citi AA card or Hilton card for 2 years because of their new policy. 2) I didn’t even call recon. I’m in Colombia right now and couldn’t be bothered to deal with it. This is the first time for a Citi app that I’ve controlled my impulse and let it go.
Did you get any last second cards from Citi? Are you also on vacation not calling recon?
