Don't see why there should be any difference.
I see.. What about FR?
I need to mee some spending thresholds with Amex. I might as well pay the CA fee and get the points but don't want to risk an FR.
AP is also FR for Amex that's why I'm looking for other alternatives...

Would you happen to know if this would count as a cash advance with an Amex card and a possible FR risk?

Did you ever try funding a Chase bank account with CC also?

I want to open a new Chase bank account.
Could I fund it with an Amex card? Could it be an FR trigger?
If the answer is no and the next best option is Visa gift card. Can I buy the Visa GC with an Amex wothout it being an FR risk?
Also, can someone please direct me to a link where I can buy Visa GC's?

Thanks

OK a little more insight into this story:
I sent out the DV letter last week, about 28 days after October 2nd, the date of the CA's letter (about 23 days after I received the letter in the mail), according to USPS it will get there tomorrow. Does that count as within 30 days?

I called up ConEdison and they told me that I can try to go down to their office and they might take a payment from me, on the other hand, they said they do not know this collection agency. The only collection agency that "supposedly" they dealt with and have on record is VAN RU (which, seems like, they sold this debt to I.C. System).
Based on this, do I need to go and try to pay ConEdison or is this a win no matter what because the new collection agency just bought it from VAN RU and thus, will no be able to validate this debt cause they weren't in contact with ConEdison at any point?
Or is it enough for them to validate that they bought this off of VAN RU who bought it off ConEdison?

BINGO!
Based on lengthy research, I found out that calling them on the phone is NOT an option at all.
Was told that paying in full can have bad results as well because they might report it as "paid in full" to the CRA, which won't look that pretty either.
Was advised to send them a letter requesting them to validate the debt, thereby stopping them from taking any further action until they validate my debt and that they're allowed to collect it.
In the meantime, I would try to pay ConEdison directly so they won't be able to validate anything..

Their letter was dated 10/2 but I only received it about 10/7 or 10/8.
I mailed my letter back to them yesterday, and it still hasn't gone out due to the hurricane the post office is backed up.
Does anyone know if this still counts as within 30 days of receiving their notice? Or are my 30 days up on 11/2 (today) since their letter is dated on the 2nd as well, although I got it about 5 days later?

At this point I'm not sure I can apply for new Chase cards, however I have some cards like BA or Hyatt that I don't mind switching in for the freedom (although I won't get the 10K bonus).
Is that at all doable without applying just calling in and asking to switch it?

Why not give it a try?  TWTCSIN
I am asking this question pre 3BM so I can know what to apply for.
Will apply to something else if 55K + $50 is not happening anymore.

Now that the United card got switched to $1000 required spend for bonus, does SMing chase for the 55K + $50 still work or doesn't work anymore?
