Come January 2018 I will be at 4/24. The one sticking point is that I am an AU on my wife's CSR which won't fall off until September 2018. That means I will likely have to go through recon, but should be in the clear. I currently hold two NOBCs, Surpass, Citi Dividend, Cap1 Spark, Ink Plus, SW Plus, and an AU CSR. My goal is earning UR, Alaska, and Southwest points. CSR is the most coveted. Here's my strategy: January: Ink Preferred. One year in business reselling (gift cards), about $25k in revenue; Will this get it done? Now if it goes to recon (which it probably will), my Ink Plus is 99% MS. Will this spell trouble? April: Old WF card falls off, now at 3/24. Cancel my AU card. Get CSR. Yes, I could just apply with the Ink Preferred but I'd rather not rock the boat too much, and I don't have an urgent need for it anyway. Now 4/24. June: Starwood Personal and Business. Now 5/24 August: Alaska Personal and Business. Now 6/24 September: NOBC, PRG, and Cap1 Spark also gone. Sitting at 3/24 October: SW Premier. Back to 4/24. February 2019: SW Plus to get my second Companion Pass (last held 2016-2017). Now, I currently hold the SW Plus but plan on cancelling it. Is a year off my record good enough for a churn? Sign up bonus posted January 2016. Thoughts?
