Credit Cards / Re: Chase A/A Master Thread (Now With Poll)
« on: July 11, 2013, 05:29:35 PM »
IIRC there had been reports of it.

But, as I've said before, aggressively looking for credit isn't a good thing and raises one's perceived risk of default, so it's not much of a stretch to link the two, IMHO.
while you're right that aggressively looking for credit raises one's perceived risk, you have to know how chase judges "aggressively looking".  generally, that's based on your cr, and the amount of recent apps etc etc.  to say that the guys at recon judge your calling to recon in and of itself as an aggressive act of looking for credit, and that that goes into chase's file as a mark on your credibility...  there's the stretch.       

unless there's solid proof to it, i wouldn't give it to much weight

Not the best deal in the world, but could be worse
why would you??     you could do much better

you could semi-regularly (seen it twice in the last month) get a new dell xps 13 from dell home outlet,  with 3rd gen i5, 256gb ssd, 8gb ram, and a full hd screen for about the same price.     seems like a no brainer.

Any recommendations on a replacement for a Sony Z12? 13", 1080p+, i7, 16GB RAM, 256GB+ SSD, good battery life, and preferably an optical drive.

Doesn't necessarily have to be a deal. I know its gonna be expensive, I'm just wondering what there is out there with these sort of specs as I have haven't found much.

I really like the Lenovo X1 Carbon but its only got a 1440x900 screen.
how much you pay for that?  and how long ago?

grand bretagne BY FAR
ehh, it seems like GB is completely sold out for my dates.  hilton looks like a great option for 20k points and $90 though.           i'm arriving in athens at 9am and leaving athens the next night at 1040pm... any ideas on the best way to work out the hotel situation to be covered for the stay?

I have always had new ones auto generated for me (since before my blogging days)
I'm not the only one, just one of the lucky ones I guess.
i hear, that sounds like a big difference.  i needed to have them done manually after already getting the card.   everyone i spoke to at amex claimed there was no way of having it done automatically...      enjoy
