Credit Cards / Re: Chase A/A Master Thread (Now With Poll)
« on: Today at 09:16:43 PM »
I never thought I would have to post in this thread.

I am a fairly small time chase guy.

I had Ritz, FU, F and IHG open with them, as well as a checking account
Two months ago I opened Marriott Biz, and BA.

Not sure if this is related,

Last month I had unusually high spend, but still not close to the CL

I got some fraud alerts on my freedom and freedom unlimited cards a week or two ago due to unusual purchases and those cards were put under 'review'

Last week I put a 7k third party check into the ATM and I got an SM that the endorsement didn't match so they're sending me a legal copy of the check.

Couple days ago I got that dreaded phone call from my wife, "none of my chase cards are working..."

All my personal and business cards are closed

I called chase executive and asked why my account was closed, they transferred me twice but I spoke to the guy who closed my account, he said my file came to his account recently for review and it was irrevocably closed due to too many recent request for credit, too many recent cards opened, and cards not used as intended, I asked what this meant he said that I added too many AUs (I had like 4 AUs, all of them added a long time ago) and they think I'm doing it to help people fix their credit and they don't like that. He told me the decision was final

I called again and asked chase executive to look into my account and reopen it. They asked me how I got their number 'for statistical purposes' I told them Google. They told me it will take two days then the person who is handling my case will call me to acknowledge they're on my case.

It sounds like a case out of this article

Any tips for getting them reopened?

Just curious for the reason behind no PMs.
Is it because you dont have any specific ones that well help him? Or do you think for some reason that it will die shortly after?
I think the subsequent comments explained why i didn't want a PM.
Its pretty easy to put in the codes yourself and play around on matrix to see if something would help, no need for my time to be wasted.
There's no secret hidden city that I'm withholding

And no YQ. Only transfers from SPG?
You can buy the points for as low as 1.1 from avaianca or get the 60k Signup bonus

That took a long time for united to fix...

Option 1.

(And, no, no lounge in DOH on option 2.)
Thanks, I'm leaving MLE on the Thursday night flight to HKG, do you still think its sacrificing the extra 4-5 hours in MLE on Monday in order to not be running from flight to flight and just have a normal night at a hotel in AUH?

nothing in there that i need urgently, bh, prob gonna wait for the next shift and call them

Which airport are they holding the bag at?

I'm Planning a trip to MLE. found EY F availability, iyh landing in AUH at 7:45PM on Sunday.

I have one of three options.

1) Stay overnight in AUH and take direct EY flight in the morning.
Abu Dhabi (AUH) to Male (MLE)
Etihad 278
Dep: 8:40 am
Arr: 2:05 pm
4h 25m
Airbus A330

2) fly to DOH and from there to MLE
Abu Dhabi (AUH) to Male (MLE) Sun, Mar 4
Overnight flight
Abu Dhabi (AUH) to Doha (DOH) Sun, Mar 4
Qatar Airways 1055
Dep: 11:25 pm
Arr: 11:35 pm
1h 10m
Airbus A320
Layover in DOH
2h 40m
Doha (DOH) to Male (MLE) Mon, Mar 5
Qatar Airways 672
Dep: 2:15 am
Arr: 8:50 am
4h 35m
Airbus A330

3) Fly on Sri Lankan and connect in CMB to MLE.
Abu Dhabi (AUH) to Male (MLE) Sun, Mar 4
Overnight flight
Abu Dhabi (AUH) to Colombo (CMB) Sun, Mar 4
Sri Lankan 208
Dep: 11:00 pm
Arr: 5:05 am
4h 35m
Airbus A320
Business (I)
Layover in CMB
Mon, Mar 5
2h 15m
Colombo (CMB) to Male (MLE) Mon, Mar 5
Sri Lankan 101
Dep: 7:20 am
Arr: 8:15 am
1h 25m
Airbus A330

I would assume many here have the same dilemma.
While I don't want extra flight legs, I dont want to land in MLE at 2PM, I want to get there in the morning, so I'm leaning against option 1.

Now the question is option 2 or 3, which one, and why?

Also if I take option 2, will I have access to First class lounge in DOH? ticket is booked on AA of course

Yup, this is United i'm dealing with. The gate agent at EWR made me check it bec "it's a full flight and this bag won't fit anyway." I've never had any issues with this bag and once I got on the plane there were rows and rows of empty overhead. I ran back to the plane entrance and grabbed my bag, the flight attendant at the entrance saw me and said "if it already has a checked tag on it and doesn't make it to the bottom of the plane, we get fined, you get fined, and the plane gets held up for security reasons, sorry for the gate agent telling everyone theres no space when there really is, but it's too late now"
So what are you doing now you left the airport without your bag?
Le t us know what happens in the end

Do u really think I did it on purpose?  I did everything possible to not check it, I told them everything I could think of (never had any issue whatsoever with this bag either)
Why did you have to check it?
What airline is this?

A guy I know did this on United via EWR. they also tried holding it Ransom at EWR

I would call the police straight up.

Lucky's stupid trip has got me thinking that maybe amex would let you pay with points with the 50% rebate if you booked EY Residence yourself and then called to have them apply the points since you can't book it through amex travel. Basically the same way you go about booking a SW flight.
You can call Plat travel and they'll book it for you probably (you can also book SW flights that way)

For NYC-TLV using AA miles on J. Which carriers have real J on the EUR-TLV leg?

I think I saw RJ and IB. Am I correct? Are there others?
RJ doesn't fly EUR-TLV
IB on some flights only.

LX, JU, LY, TK, PS, SU, and possibly others have real J ex-TLV on all aircraft that flight that route

How many miles to MAD or DUS? Is it still 40k/70k/115k?

ETA: I see on Awardhacker it's 30/57.5
Helps when you write where you're leaving from.
