Re: Chase Sapphire Reserve BENEFITS master thread
DATA POINT & Question:
Got my CSR in OCT.
MON 28 NOV signed up wife for CSR for $4K for 100K.
Received it today, 30 NOV & statement closing date is 11 DEC & Due Date is 08 JAN.
So, DEC Statement Date is still possible for CY16 $300 Travel Benefits.
But, what's most lucrative travel benefits to buy & sell as I have no travel available to purchase?
My SWA GC I bought on my card seem to have little interest.
Any ideas....
The going rate for SW is 80%. Sell the credit straight up for 90%, and someone will use it to book a ticket.

Re: $2 trick to increase FICO score.
I've been trying to understand this but am having some blockage... Should I be paying my Chase cards in full before the statement closes or it doesn't matter because they only report when I pay? If it does report on statement closing, why shouldn't I let stmnt close with $2 and then by the time I pay those $2 that the statement shows due, there will already be a larger balance and it won't be reported as paid in full and only reported next statement closing which will also be $2? Any clarification would be appreciated (and, as I've come to learn, earn a like!)...
Yes, you should pay before closing, as they report the balance and don't update until next statement or you pay in full.

It's been asked by many and the notion has been dismissed as heresy, although it works perfectly well.

Re: HOT!!! TLV-NYC round trip from $369!!! includes 2 bags Business class from $1635
Nice! Any issues getting promo applied?
Anyone else try booking with US call center?
No issue (I got a great rep), although he did ask where I got the promo code from (I told him the website, as everyone knows that stam "the website" means DDMS).

Re: Amex Platinum Master Thread
Is it hard to get approved for a Platinum as your first Amex card?

So without mosaic there's no refund or credit I'm guessing correct?
There is, but $70 fee. (You can PM me if you need refundable.)

Re: Hot! $100 Airbnb E-Gift Card, Only $80
"I bought some 5 figures of Airbnb at 50%-100% off"
How is that math figured?
Manually applied credits via chat, and then amex auto applied them in December.

Re: Citibank 1099
Types of common credit card rewards that are not counted as income include cash-back programs, travel miles bonuses, accumulated points towards future purchases and credit card sign-up bonuses that require a financial transaction to be realized.

If, however, the sign-up bonus for your credit card does not require that you make any purchases or charge any amount to your card, then you are likely to receive a 1099-MISC tax form in the mail in conjunction with the bonus. Since the IRS requires that these benefits be treated as income, you must document your rewards on the 1099 form. In some circumstances, the issuing credit card company reports the rewards as income to the IRS and state authorities, but this is usually only the case when state law requires such reports.

A signup bonus that requires you to spend $3k for 100kb points valued at $1500 is just a generous rebate.

Re: Premium Packing Tape $5.94 Chill out. It's in best interest of many to have deals reposted here, as it's more professional to give a forum member the HT than a competing site.
