Credit Cards / American Express Stories
« on: July 11, 2012, 08:32:41 AM »
I thought this might be an interesting thread for people to discuss how a credit card company had helped them out.
I had called Amex after buying an expensive item on my SPG and realized I had never gotten a receipt. All my calls and emails got me nowhere so I called Amex and asked if there was anything they could do. Within a week Amex had gotten me a copy of my receipt with a handwritten apology from the manager of the store! (The receipt was important for a rebate)

I know nothing about these type of things and need advice. Need to use an extension cord for an indoor air conditioner. It is 115V plug. Is there a specific type that I need? Heavy duty?

Credit Cards / Starwood or Saphire Preferred
« on: May 09, 2012, 11:01:19 AM »
I am booking a flight, car and hotel and am trying to confirm which card I should primarily use. All are being booked on a CC and not using points
I believe that the car rental is covered under Sapphire since its a visa and as long as I decline any insurance from rental agency I get this coverage for free as opposed to Amex which charges... Correct?
Chase also seems to offer different options for flight cancellation, lost luggage, delays etc. Will my starwood offer anything  better?
My hotel is not a Starwoods... Any benifit to using the Amex card for reservation?

Looking to go to Arizona for a few days. Does anyone have a Fairmont upgrade (from the Livingsocial deal I believe?) that they would sell or give to me? :)  Maybe one that they are not using?

General Discussion / Verizon Auto-Pay
« on: April 17, 2012, 10:01:16 AM »
I looked at my checking account this morning and it seems that verizon has debited my account 4 days before my bill is due! I looked back and it seems they are constantly taking it out earlier than they should be. When I contacted them they told me I could leave autopay (which I dont want to do... easier than remembering every month). I asked if I were to pay manually on the due date (4/21) would it be considered late and they said no? So why are you debiting my account 4 days in advance in order for it to "settle"? Any input or thoughts on this??
BTW, if you try and pay with a CC they charge the card 12 days after the bill is printed... yup 12 days... go figure

With all the recent articles about hacking, credit card breaches etc does anyone think its worth it to sign up for credit card monitoring. Maybe I am just paranoid?

Credit Cards / Bill Me Later
« on: March 23, 2012, 01:45:38 PM »
I am about to purchase something on ebay and they offered me $10 off my purchase to use Bill Me Later. Is this worth it to save $10? All it asks for is DOB and last 4 of Social. Is it a hard pull?
