I’ve been searching the Internet for a credit offer to quench my churn thirst. I tried with the Citi AA Business. I was rejected (see About That Citi AA Business Application…). I am still in labor with the Barclays card (see Barclays JetBlue App: Please FAX Your Business Lease). Then I saw Lucky peddling a card called Brex with a 110k sign-up bonus. 100k+anything sounds good right now so I decided to take a look. Lucky gets paid for referring you to Brex so you can read the full details on his site. Personally, I’m not a fan of the brand name, reminds me of the ultimate backfire movement- Brexit.
From what I gathered by skimming my way down to the sign-up link, Brex is a business checking account for people with actual businesses, not an imaginary dog named SHRED sole proprietor (supra Citi AA Business Application). By spending 4k and linking payroll, something that I actually have along with applying via OMAAT’s link, 110k points will be mine.
I submitted the required documents and was instantly approved. Then I received an email saying they needed my Articles of Incorporation and that my approval was conditional. I submitted that document and now I wait. Since there is no credit check and no bullshit 5/24, I expect to be approved, something that I never say aloud in fear of angering the churn gods.
The reason I am excited for this card is because of the great opportunities for transferring points to airlines at a 1:1 ratio should any of these airlines be in business in 2025:
|Aeromexico Club Premier|
|Air France/KLM Flying Blue|
|Cathay Pacific Asia Miles|
|Qantas Frequent Flyer|
|Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer|

Have you applied for the Brex card, Shredder?
