So I get an email from Chase credit journey that my score dropped.
I check my Chase credit journey (powered by Experian) and it shows that in the last month my score dropped 58 points! to 749.
Concerned with this drastic drop I sign in to Experian and see that actually my score is 790. Still a little drop but nothing drastic.
What's up with that?

If this is your only mistake with this creditor send them a good will letter to try and get the late removed.
Thank you. I already tried that on the phone. I will try messaging them. Any other advice? specifically about applying for other cards now?

Made a stupid mistake  and forgot about a certain credit card bill for 2 -3 months.
Paid it all in full as soon as i realized - about a month ago - but my FICO dropped from 808 down to 716. Now it is back up to 721.

1) Is there something to do about it? or just too bad?
2) I was planning to apply for a Sapphire Preferred (and possibly an Amex Plat) this month. Is that a good idea?

So hard to keep up with all new new rules

Just booked a ticket on Delta using miles in main economy.
Can I cancel this ticket at any time and get full refund of miles?

In this post it mentions explicitly changes to tickets. Does the same apply to cancellation?

I just booked
ORD - JFK on DL using DL miles. Basic Economy - Arrives in JFK at 9:55 AM
JFK - LHR on VS using VS miles. Classic Economy - Departs JFK same day at 7PM.

Is there a way to marry these 2 segments so that:
1) I can get free checked luggage on the ORD - JFK segment,
2) I can check luggage straight from ORD to LHR
3) If the answer to no. 2 is negative, will I be able to check my luggage to LHR upon arrival in JFK in the morning?
4) Would rebooking segment 1 as a regular economy ticket make any difference to any of the above?

COVID-19 Discussion Board / Re: Israel (Not) Reopening To Foreigners

A relative living in Israel would like to come to the US for Pesach.

She has both Israeli and UK citizenship.

Any reason to think she would have any issues leaving Israel, entering USA?

What about quarantining on her return to Israel? (She is fully vaccinated if that makes a difference)

Also she would need to either get a visa to come to USA as an Israeli or renew her UK passport. Which of those would be easier accomplished in Israel these days?

(if this is the wrong board for this please direct me to the correct place to ask this)

Renewals generally don't require interviews, though more chance of not requiring one if you renew it before it expires.

CSR covers GE/PreCheck.
Thank you
I no longer live in the same state - so i have new driver license and new address, does this mean I will likely be called to interview? And can I avoid this by just applying for TSA PRE?

Mine is expiring soon.
I not sure if I should renew which may require an interview for which I have no time an patience or just get TSA PRE which is what I mainly use it for.
(When I fly international I usually fly into ORD where I haven't found GE to make much of a difference in time)

If I apply just for TSA PRE might I also need an interview?
If I apply for GE and then they ask for interview, can I just cancel the renewal and apply for TSA PRE only?
Would my Sapphire reserve card reimburse me either way?

Someone living in Israel. Is both an Israeli and UK citizen. Planning to visit USA for a few months.
What are his best options for travel insurance? (Specifically these days with covid19...)
