Credit Cards / Bill Pay
« on: February 13, 2015, 12:47:02 AM »
Dan posted multiple times on DDMS details of WalMart bill pay. Does anyone use WM to pay bills (credit cards etc.) with Debit... I've never used this service, but it prob sounds better asking cashier to pay bill vs. can I buy a few large MO's...

Credit Cards / Citi Identity Monitor is closing up... Now what?
« on: January 23, 2015, 12:00:33 AM »
I used to use Citi identity monitor and was able to (once in a while) see all hits in each credit bureau and also all the info that goes into calculating real score. Best of all they had a free or $1 trial... Apparently now they aren't taking new enrollment and are closing up in two months...
What does everyone else use? specifically to see hard credit pulls...

Credit Cards / Amex Blue Cash Preferred Master Thread

To sign up:

After reading about the Pathmark madness, I guess it's not so hard to find $500 gc's in supermarkets, that can be purchased with cc. Also, I'd guess it's not the hardest thing to spend $6000/year in supermarkets, but I was still not on pace. Good thing I found $500 gc today! (5.95 purchase fee). I wonder how many store card points I'll get for my purchase and hope the local school gets 1%...
Is it easy to find $500 visa cards in stores, (besides the pathmark chain) or did I just get lucky?

So you are a Cubs fan?  :)
How'd you guess?

Rizzo, Castro, Castillo, Lake, Samardzija, Wood, Baez, Almora, Bryant, Soler, Olt, C.J., RusinRaleyrRosscup, and the international 17 year olds...
Finally a great team! This means something to a real fan, and would prob be Chinese to the rest of the world...
And, please don't tell me there already is a Cubs forum cause that would mean that I missed out until now...

Credit Cards / How to spend money at gas stations.
« on: July 11, 2013, 11:08:51 AM »
I have a Freedom card and two Discover cards that have gas stations as bonus categories this month. I usually get gas through buying gift cards 2*$50 and getting a $10 store gift card at a local Dave's. So, although I buy a lot of gas, 5% doesn't help much. Does anyone have ideas on how to spend?
