Re: Misc Credit Card Questions

If I had a sapphire preferred then did a product change to regular Sapphire and it's been two years since I received the original sign up bonus. Can I do another product change to let's say the freedom card, and then sign up again to the sapphire preferred to get the bonus?

Yes. (wait a day or to between PCing to to app)

Re: Wizmanison's MAUI TR 2018

Now that flights and hotels were booked we looked into renting a car. Having Presidents Circle has been great in terms of upgrades and by sheer luck on our Kauai trip a SS Camaro happened to pull in when we were set to pick up our “corolla”. We didn’t want to take the chance this time so I booked with my friends Hertz Platinum status he earned through the black card and with the help of @davidrotts63 we got a great deal at $22.50 a day for a Corolla. Since we were traveling with my brother in law, Sister, and their newborn baby we decided we would chose the Wrangler over the Camaro for our upgrade. Without using Plat status the Wrangler would have been $1,100 for those 4 days while the Camaro was going for $315.
Timing worked perfectly for this flight as a Grubhub promotion came out a week before our flight which allowed one to get $20 off $20. Although I had seen it when every blogger posted about it, I was so busy that I just set it aside for later and almost forgot about it when @davidrotts63 messaged me asking me about my experience with the promotion. Within 10 or so minutes, I had me, my wife, and my brother in law, get approximately 250 codes to use over the next two weeks before they expire. So for the days leading up to the flight I was ordering SO MUCH food for me, my family, friends (even though I had sent this deal out to them, with a dumbed down explanation explaining how to get unlimited codes, they only get like max 5-10  ::) ), and randoms in need. This deal was truly amazing because I was ably to try all these foods from restaurants around Los Angeles that I typically hesitated to try and would have never actually paid for. While still being able to enjoy massive meals every day, as well as stocking up our house in Snapples, we ordered take out food from restaurants all around LA to freeze the food and pack it in the polar bear cooler to reheat in Maui.

Now that you posted this what will I bug you about? (wait, you have the other big trip I'm waiting for )
This is amazing, your detail is mind blowing.

Glad I stopped to help with your car as I was generating Grubhub codes as 90% of my codes went back to you either way, happy to be a help.

Still don't know how we got that car so cheap.

Did booking with you BIL's platinum account actually help?

Waiting for segment 2!!

ETA: Pictures look amazing, especially the drone shots, but couldn't you embed them on the TR instead of links?

March 25, 2018, 03:35:16 PM
Re: Wizmanison's MAUI TR 2018

From what I understand some people prefer this way as it doesn't clutter up the whole TR. Especially since I have so typically add so many pictures!

The platinum status DEFINITELY helped and was amazing.

I take back what I said about the pictures, if you dump in a lot of pictures in one spot I'd prefer them embedded, but with your writing style that the pictures are put in every few lines at there proper spot, embedded pictures would clog it up.

Re: Hot! 1.5 Dz Eggs (18CT) @Target $.99 + $10 0ff $50 food Purchase

The delivery guy was so confused when we had that staples deal for free boxes of paper a few years back. “Do you guys have some sort of holiday that has to do with paper? I’ve been delivering hundreds of these all over Lakewood.”
I had that about a baby product price mistake (crib?) a while back where the delivery guy asked a friend if we synchronize our kids.

Re: Chase ink cash new bonus
I h
I have another Ink and a few AMEX business cards. I applied for it last night and called the reference number this AM when they told me hold up was Patriot Act. Too late to reapply on my own name with my name as the company or call back and ask to alter app?
Call back and ask for a reconsideration only if they mention that you need those docs should you ask them to alter name

Re: Chase ink cash new bonus
I had the same issue with CIP, used my unregistered buisness name, called recon and the rep was able to change the app to my name, no issues
YMMV so don't suggest it until they aren't willing to do anything else

Re: Chase Reconsideration
Applied for Chase Ink, didn't get approved right away, called and got denied.  I know all about HUCA but if I call again are there notes from the 1st call or any record that I called already and got denied?
They are there and they will likely read them, but they still will give you another reconsideration, at a certain point they may be idiots about it.

March 26, 2018, 04:42:26 PM
Re: Chase Reconsideration
To aprove me for a card chase shifted credit on its that common practice?
Not super common, but happens.

March 26, 2018, 05:54:54 PM
Re: Chase Reconsideration
I applied for Chase Ink Cash and Southwest Personal two days ago with 2 BM method. Got denied on both. Have great credit and 30K credit limit on a Ink business preferred, Chase Freedom unlimited and Chase reserve. Called business recon for Chase Ink Cash and said have too many accounts (not 5/24 though, just too much credit with chase). I told them to please reconsider and move credit around, but they denied. Called back and then they sent for reconsideration again and recommended approval, and told me too wait 24-48 hours. Not sure what the outcome will be but should I call in for the Southwest personal now or wait until Ink cash is resolved? Also, if both get denied after recon again, should I HUCA or no point? Thanks in advance!

Yes HUCA if you need. And call now for second card, and if you need be straight up and offer to shift credit from card X to approve this card.... A reason for the denial may be if you stated income is <65k, they don't like approving >50% of your SI. So if you already have 30k credit for another 5k they'd want 70k SI.
And a recommendation for auto approval is generally a good sign, keep an eye out for changes on the automated system.
As for 2bm I recommend for the future to apply for one, get an approval and only then go for the second

Re: Bye bye to the waste of time purchase signing
Made 2 purchases today at small businesses with amex , both for small amounts, and both required signatures...
I think it'll take time for all the systems to update

April 03, 2018, 03:35:04 PM
Re: DansDeals Credit Card Links And FAQ's: Your Support Keeps This Site Running!
For example when making a purchase in shop rite your credit card has no clue if I bought a chocolate bar or a container of milk or 5k worth of gcs, it counts as a regular purchase in most instances..
I believe that is incorrect, they can see more information then that, especially Amex who does their own processing.

Re: My next app-o-rama...
Thank you, that was super helpful!
Some questions- How can I easily clarify which products are grouped as a family and preclude my getting a bonus for each, and which ones won't allow me to get a bonus while I have another open?
For example- Can I get the bonus for both Ink Preferred and Ink Cash? And can I get either bonus while I have an Ink Plus open? Can I get a bonus for a Freedom if I have a FU open?
Yes to all of your questions.
The only products that are one product are the sapphires and now the 2 southwest personal cards.

Re: My next app-o-rama...
So if someone has a Sapphire Preferred they cannot get the signup bonus for Reserve? Will closing the SP allow the bonus, or is it subject to waiting from last bonus?
You wouldn't even get approved.
To be able to get it you need 2 things
A: no sapphire open
B: you didn't get the bonus within 24 months

April 12, 2018, 07:58:47 PM
Re: My next app-o-rama...
So as long as no bonus in last 24 months (and no 5/24 disqualification), all one needs to do is close CSP and then can apply immediately afterwards for CSR and get bonus?
Yes. Better PC to a Freedom, either regular or Freedom Unlimited.

April 12, 2018, 08:15:16 PM
Re: My next app-o-rama...
If already have Freedom, will they let downgrade from CSP to Freedom?
Yes. But maybe consider a CFU

April 12, 2018, 08:21:21 PM
Re: My next app-o-rama...
Would rather wait for that to get bonus; bonuses only given on new apps not downgrades.
2 Freedoms may be better for you, but if not get the CFU then when you want to get the SUB PC the card to a Freedom.

Re: My next app-o-rama...
Why not throw in non-Chase Biz cards (Citi, Amex etc) in step 1? They won't count toward 5/24 and will be easier to get approved early on in the process.
Good call.
But to an extent, because too many can throw off the more inquiry sensitive banks.

Re: My next app-o-rama...

Hi think about getting back into the game after an extended break, few questions:
1- how long after a balance is paid off does it reflect on my credit report/increase scores? Immediately or after next billing cycle?
2- is it possible to get 2 Buisness sw cards and welcome bonuses if I apply under 2 different business names?
3- I currently have multiple Ink cash cards under a few different businesses am I better off applying for new cards under the sams busineesss since they are established Or will they give me hard time why need ore cards for same Buisness?
4- in the past (over 3 yrs ago) I have gotten all the platnuim/gold amex Buisness cards- any way I can   Still get a new bonus?

Thanks !

1.Usually next statement, although Chase and maybe some others often (always?) report immediately if PIF
2. No
4. No

Re: DansDeals Credit Card Links And FAQ's: Your Support Keeps This Site Running!
For us beginner ignoramous's.....

Can anyone point me where to read the basics, how to rack up points, should I cancel cards after AF kicks in (will it hurt my score....?)? Does the 3 browser method still work? Can I apply for 3 of the same card at the same time with that method? Anywhere to read all about such questions and the many other people like myself have? Thanks in advance!

To answer your questions simply
1. Follow the links TimT provided.
2. If you can't get a retention offer, and the AF is not worth the card, try to downgrade to a free option, of not cancel the card, it'll barely make a dent, unless it's your first card. And follow the links TimT provided
3. Yes. Tho not so simple for the most part, so follow the links TimT provided
4. No
5. follow the links TimT provided
Hope that helps

JJ1000's 10,000 Post Featuring: A day in the life of Dan, Giveaway, & More It's hard to imagine I joined DDF over 10 years ago, of course this was after I made the first comment on DDMS 14 years ago and joining ctown forums after that.

I really can't begin to count the memories I have here on DDF, one that comes ot mind is the first major DO where @Dan @AsherO @BrooklynCPA @Mikeoracle @Smirk @MOSES @whYME @yare @Avid Reader @Chachem Balaileh @mancunian @yid @SuperFlyer all had an amazing time.

Picture of the DO:

Back at that DO no one really knew who I was, besides that I was the guy who started the jokes thread, which I must say was one of my finest additions to DDF ;)

Since that DO I have made countless friends and received countless favors from DDF members, who truly are like family.

Some that come to mind.

@rots5 and @moish putting me up in Israel while @moishebatchy offered my friends and I extra sheets for our stay, this was of course when we went with the first El AL glitch tickets. @SamKey For hooking up his apartment for Pesach and @Emkay for some awesome kugel, that I am pretty sure had an ok hechsher. @Chaikel for setting up a sweet Jamaican honeymoon.

@steve2 and the fights other new comers used to love to pick like @AJK when he was a total troll back in the day and @HelpMe who IMO had no idea what he fell into when he got here, and I'd like to think was very happy that he stayed.

@TimT is always there to offer some advice and is obviously the best searcher on DDF, @AsherO and @aussiebochur used to be that helpful guy until he got too busy for us ;)

Of course there was @JEWDA who it's still hard to believe isn't here anymore, going to his widows house the day after my Lchaim/vort with my then fiance will always be very special to me. The way DDF comes together when someone is in need (@SBS thread) is so heart touching it's hard to explain.

@mileagejunkie @Marco Polo @myi @YossieW @stooges44 @davidmal @Yaalili @B.D.Da'ehu @ben89 and of course @Davidthebest are my 100 HT club peeps, and have helped ignite the great deals we post every day to help tens of thousands of people save (and maybe spend) money every day. I really appreciate every deal that's sent to us and that's posted on DDF.

I couldn't possibly remember all of the countless nights I stayed up to argue with someone that was wrong about the most random things imaginable. @churnbabychurn @ExGingi @aygart @ChaimMoskowitz and of course many others can always be counted on for some good popcorn when it's needed. And @sky121 can always be counted on for a balanced and positive view on any subject.

Some dude coming along looking to sell a stinky old fish tank has drastically improved the trip reports and photography skills of DDF, hats off to you @Something Fishy.

@DH Data Recovery practically owned the tech deals on ddf at one point, and he @chevron and @txtmax4  are always good for a wine recommendation.

Wrigley softball DO with @SrulyS @Moes Tavern @Redbull3 @MosheD @EJB @chucksterace @Bentch @grodnoking @AJK @Yitzshpitz @Dan@Yodai Dooma @ShmulieCFS @JTZ

One day I may even meet @henche though that is likely IMPOSSIBLE.

Big shoutout to @BAHayman, @Eli, and @Suave for making DDMS/DDF able to run and be what it is today thanks to them!

The first DDF shidduch was super cool @Lou Bob @MC to many more, spending shabbos together in Aruba on the Hyatt Price Mistake was awesome.

Crazy to imagine there are over 300 members with 1,000+ posts so my apologies, I'm sure I missed many memories.

I made a thread asking what I should do for my 10,000 post, and I will try to do most of them below.

Enjoy :)
A typical day in the life of Dan:

Some names and identifying details have been changed to protect the privacy of individuals.

Dan wakes up from an amazing night's rest on his W Hotel mattress. and tell his Echo Dot which he got for free to turn on the Breville Coffee Maker plugged into his smart plug.

Get into hisNissan Altima and take the quick 2 minute drive to shachris.

After davening, @AJK texts Dan that AA has a Price Mistake to LA in F for $5, if they buys it in the airport and flies today. Naturally Dan just heads straight to the airport and boards the flight to LA. On the plane there is a dog next to him, which was strange at first until he realized it was just @meshugener flying in F as well.

In LAX Dan visits the United lounge, which he has free access to with his lifetime membership and his JMPRCC. He picks up his rental from Silver Car and heads to Tierra Sur for the Lunch DO.

In LA @Yehoshua @Cholentfresser @Yaalili @PlatinumGuy @yehuda @D93 @etech0 @ilherman and @David Smith all meet up for the DO.

All of a sudden Barto walks in and instinctively, the group makes a beeline for the door. But before they can bail, he stops them...And says he planned the AA Price Mistake in order to get a face to face with Dan after all these years.

Barto has realized after years of being the bad guy, he just wanted to hang out with the cool kids on DDF from the olden days like @Drago @Saver2000 @Cbs @Q274 @MarkS @aussiebochur , @chuchem and @myb821, he said even though it's @noturbizniss but he left his old job and as he was leaving he reinstated all the damage he's done over the years, returning millions of miles to their rightful owners.

Everyone was very happy and had drinks all around as well as
grilled to perfection.

After Lunch Dan drives back to the airport and rushes to catch his flight home as he realizes it is almost time for his UPS delivery. On the plane he uses the on board Wi-Fi to make some posts and read DDF (this is actually what takes up 18 hours of the day every day, besides shabbos).

He makes it home just in time to receive his UPS delivery of US Mint coins. He had set up delayed delivery back in 2009 and every day since then he has been receiving a $10k shipment of US Mint coins shipped via the UPS Method. To date this has netted a cool 30,000,000+ SPG points.

At the end of the day he reflect on life and remembers what is really important and what he is thankful for.

Now it's time to count to 10,000 and fall asleep.

(This is a fairly typical day)

Just some simple tricks for car rental status.

You can get free Sixt Platinum status when you sign up with this link. Once you confirm your email address you can login and instantly get your card online that shows you as Platinum.

Then match that status to National and hopefully get Executive elite, possibly Executive. (Can also apply here directly for executive)

Then email Hertz Simply enroll in the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Program then provide proof of your identity and proof of status with other car rental companies via email to

And apply for Enterprise Platinum here.

Avis you can try via social media or calling sometimes.

Fell free to add more matches in the comments.
A quick chazara of all my posts: Your attitude is what decides your mood, not what's going on. You can have a trip ruined if something goes wrong, or it can become one of the most memorable trips of your life. Roll with the punches. Always have a healthy dose of cynicism. Understand that someone with beliefs to the right of you or the left of you aren't wrong, just different, a rainbow would be pretty ugly with just one color. Enjoy life and always cherish what's most important to you, and try to keep that in mind every second of every day.

As a last note I'd like to do a small giveaway. just comment on this thread and I'll choose one winner to get a Google Home Mini and another winner to get the best card games IMO being Codenames and Monopoly Deal.

I can't thank DDF enough for giving me all the opportunities life has to offer, from making friends, traveling the world, to supporting my family, I couldn't do any of it without this truly amazing community.

Just to end off with a special thanks to Dan for starting it all and giving me the opportunity to grow the site and live the blessed life that I do.
