Chase IHG

Yesterday I detailed my latest application spree.  I applied for 10 Bank of America cards.  Four were instantly approved and the rest are pending.  At the end of the post I mentioned that I had applied for one more card — a Chase card.  Why did I do it?  Which card did I apply for?  What was the outcome?  Here’s the story… Almost two years ago I reported that my wife and I were considering…
