Just go messed over for the second time, when signing up my wife for the US Airway 40k offer. I think she only received the 10k card that's in the small print.
Anyone ever have luck with having them switch it to the higher card, or at least receive the bonus? I tried it once before with my card, and I think I hung up on them out of frustration.
Just spoke to them, and I was told that the account has the 40k sign-up, so we'll see what happens...
Also, interesting thing happened with my biz card application. Applied at the same time as the personal account and received a rejection. Called them up, was transferred between 5(!) departments until I spoke w/ s/o. They told me it was denied since I had not enough credit history with them. They told me they could do it again, but that since they hadn't pulled my CR, they would need to pull it this time. I debated, and decided to do it.
In the end, they denied me after 20 minutes of arguing since I had opened up some accounts in the last year, and as a result, they wanted to see more of history of paying on time on these accounts. This is despite the fact that there are over 5 years of on time payments on my CR. They wanted to see payments on these accounts specifically.
It also didn't help that I was honest about the biz opening in the last few months.
So either way, a bad waste of a CR pull.
