Credit Cards And Finance / Re: Amex Business Gold Card 75,000 point bonus

That's the reg 50k link.
This one is YMMV

I got the 75k offer last Wednesday.  Tried 50-60 times before it came up.


Have United call you.  In my experience, those reps are almost always better than the front line reps on the published 800 number.  I was owed a refund for a different situation, but just like you, the front line reps told me to submit a request using the website, couldn't find an option on the site for my specific situation and I tried the closest option available and got denied.  Using the link above I got connected to a knowledgeable rep and got my refund processed quickly.

It's been a long while since I've done an AOR as I've been out of the game for a while, but I'm looking to do my next one soon.  My current lineup, needs, and travelability puts me in a pickle for what I can shoot for.

I've already done the AMEX personal SPG/Plat/Gold bonuses.  I'm not eligible for Biz Plat/SPG bonuses.  My AMEX goal is to reset the clock on my biz bonuses but hang on to my MR points *AND* be able to transfer them to an AU's FFN in the near future at the lowest cost possible.  My Chase goal was to get the 50k x 2 with Southwest, but I missed the boat on that one.  So I guess the goal there is to get the largest amount of MR possible.  Points such as LH/BA do nothing for me unless I can amass a desirable amount of points for resale.  Hotel points/nights are the same since I won't have the flexibility to travel for the next year or so.

Here's my current relevant lineup:
Chase Personal:
British Petroleum (oldest card)
Freedom #1
Freedom #2
United MPE

Chase Biz:
Ink Bold
Ink Plus
United Club

AMEX Personal:

Amex Biz:

Hilton HHonors Reserve

Barclay's Arrival Plus $400
Chase Sapphire and maybe Chase BA OR Southwest 25k??
AMEX BGR (50k)
Amex Every Day (preferred?).

So my plan is awful as I'll have at least 3 pulls for 4-5 cards.  Can you HelpMe fill in the blanks?

Did you call and ask why you were shut down?

Definitely put the old address. I once used a new address before it was officially on my CR and it was a huge hassle to get through their fraud dept

+1, I had the same experience with Chase.

United MPE - Haven't spent much since getting the 55k bonus, open for about a year, was offered 2 Club passes.  No other offer available, so I accepted it.  Will probably end up closing it down at recon during my next AOR.

If you can get a hold of the Target red card, that's loadable directly with a cc or with a GC at Target.

+5000 (if you're able to get it).  I'm *really* enjoying this card.

I had a similar history on the latter portion of an 80/20 loan thanks to the housing market collapse.  I picked the worst time to buy a house and an even worse time to sell it (did a short sale) due to having to move from one side of the state to the other.

As a result, in 2008 I had that same stain on my report and that account showed as derogatory.  Everything else about my report was great, however.  I started playing the CC game about 2-3 years later and it hasn't caused a problem with any approvals for me.  Any denial letter I have received in the past was never due to the "Settled for less" problem.  It should fall off of my report next summer.

However - that was the only bad mark on my credit report, and it was due to a short sale.  So YMMV.

I am trying to pay with softcard it says that the card is ready to pay, but nothing happens when I put my phone on the device.
Please anyone knows what can be the problem?
I have the same problem with my S4.  Tried at multiple stores/multiple chains (McDonalds, Walgreens, Rite Aid), with and without my rubber case, same problem.

ETA: just saw the comment above about the battery.  I just switched to a NOOT battery, I bet that is my problem.

My status says shipped on two card and it disappeared from Chase. It had previously said pending, now isn't pending or posted

Common with Chase.  Check again tomorrow.

Specs are subpar, but for $230...

One guy says expensive, one guy seems to thing for $230 it's worth it.  Who to believe??

Has anyone else had success loading Serve at WalMart with VGCs issued by MetaBank?  For the longest time I was unable to do it.  Today at a WM in CLE I had to unload some MC GCs from last week's Staples deal.  After I was done swiping, I tried the 2 Visa GCs I just bought from Staples in my pocket even though it was a long shot.

Surprise - it worked.  Lucky, or did something change?

Wow, a new era for Citi indeed.

Hah!  I hope that "a new era" line never dies.

Mind explaining what's your problem?
I had a question about a Chase card, I put it in the chase thread. I had another question about an Amex, So I put it in the Amex thread.

This thread is for Chase Reconsideration.
