Actually this message is from priority pass and not from amex. So this affects all pp members regardless whether your membership is from amex or from Chase etc.

Credit Cards / Re: credit score
« on: June 17, 2019, 02:30:29 PM »
I had a Costco personal cc with 250 cash back accumulated. My credit card was closed due to my Costco membership being expired. They state that in order to keep my credit card open I need to have an active membership.
So I renewed my membership, and then called to reinstate the card. I was told that I can reinstate the account but there will be a credit pull.
So my question is:
1. Will reopening the account result in a "new account" on my credit report or only a "pull".
2. If it's only a pull, is it worth reopening the card for the 250(Which is essentially a SUB of 250) or am I rather off letting this go and opening a business card which I can find with a better SUB and would have the same affect on my credit score

Up In The Air / Re: 20% bonus MR to QF through 6/30

I have an interesting dp.
I transferred 500 points on 6/3 which was before amex was running the 20% promo and the transfer went through as 1:1
On June 11 I was awarded 20%.
I think this can confirm it's a separate promo as amex wouldn't give me the 20% extra since this was before the promo start date.

Is there no legal stand for all this. If someone can prove that they didn't violate a single t&c and they are 100% kosher, does the bank still have the right to close accounts?

I would assume they don't even need to charge you. Just remove the balance points of what the ticket would've cost from your account. You don't even have a credit card to make a dispute.
Wonder if UA will charge people massive differences in fare for dropping legs :)

I dont think it would be a long shot at all. i can just go in to bank with my FIL and he adds me to checking account as signer. why would that be long shot?
Any updates?
It would be nice to hear back from someone after they've tried to reinstate, to know if there is any chance.....


Ensure you have a contact number, even ask for government ID, something. Force payment via PayPal with buyer protection? Use an escrow service...

This may be the way to go.

How about a system where a user would somehow have to have his true identity verified in order to get a "verified badge". Can still remain anonymous on the forum, but  Dan would have his true identity.
This would deter scammers who feel they can do whatever they want since they are anonymous, and can help with resolving conflicts if they do arise.
I also think you can charge a nominal fee to cover the verification process.

I guess the assumption is that if the NYT says 100k it must've been 250k...
You have support from the highest office in the land


After the hotel 10% promo fiasco my trust in Chase is below zero.
They call them chase because you have to chase them to get your points.
Add "targeted" to title. Not available on my freedom or freedom unlimited.

Is there ona'as devarim if you have no intent to buy the car? I'm not even talking about the gift card, I mean can you even do the test drive?
Of course you don't have any intent to buy. But just wait till you test drive it, you'll be so blow away.....
Just like with the Tesla. Just ask Dan..

Went to the same store I buy from last night, MCs were sold out, but they were still doing 10.
The limit of 1 was specifically on the one that was on sale the 200 mc.
The same stores that sold it in the beginning of the week 10 per customer, had them from Thursday and on behind the counter and only allowed 1 per customer.

Nothing rude occurred in that story,

Your right there was nothing rude in the story itself but the attitude was definitely rude/spiteful. I think that's what prompted the second FA to putpac.
