The recent (and sudden) shutdown of the Rtiz Card as well as the increase to a 48 month limitation on the Sapphire products shows that the 5/24 blanket rule is about to come! I went ahead and got myself the IHG Premier card and got a letter this week saying my MLA coverage was successful. I got the MLA letter before the card ever showed up. This means I get one free night and the annual fee waived for my IHG card due to my active duty status.
If you are LOL/24 (way over 5 cards in 24 months) then its time to apply for these products before the hammer comes down:
- IHG Premier (My Link Here, but better offer of 100k and $50 out there)
- Hyatt Card (My Link Here & Here)
The other non-5/24 restricted cards can be found here, but none offer an annual benefit and therefore do not fit with my churn plan.
Get on it!
