Credit Cards / Number & Nature of Pulls Master Thread
« on: August 07, 2013, 12:56:05 PM »
Use this thread to discuss how many pulls and from which agency your credit was pulled when applying for a specific card or from a specific bank.

Credit Cards / Bluebird Information (Other than VRs, GCs and MVDs)
« on: July 07, 2013, 09:13:42 PM »
I'm starting this thread thread because the main Bluebird thread is inundated with questions about things that don't really pertain to Bluebird itself, lately it's basically a VR & GC thread with a few actual Bluebird questions peppered in between.

I'm proposing that this thread be used for all Bluebird questions that have nothing to do with loading at Walmart or using VR to load.

Topics such as:
  • Applying for Bluebird
  • Adverse Actions with Bluebird
  • Bluebird Limits
  • Bluebird Checks
  • Bluebird Payees

Mods - What do you think?

What is the best Hyatt or Starwood hotel to use points in London?

What I'm looking for is the best value per point spent, similar to how Dan considers the Park Hyatt in Paris Vend๔me to be one of the best hotel redemptions.

Should I simply compare the advertised rate for the room vs the point redemption?

Does anyone here have some experience with these hotels?

Hyatt Regency London - The Churchill
Andaz Liverpool St

Sheraton Park Tower
W London
Meridien Picadilly
Park Lane Hotel
Lanesborough St Regis

What are your guidelines for flying on a Friday?

From where to where would you or wouldn't you?

How many hours before Shabbos does the scheduled arrival need to be for you to consider it?

Does the origin or destination airport make a difference?

Credit Cards / Citi Dividend 5% CB Q2 2013 Categories
« on: April 12, 2013, 12:56:38 AM »
Just got letter from Citi Dividend, their 5% CB categories are very broad for Q2.

Commuter Expenses

Limit is $300 cb so 6K in the quarter but probably worth it on the categories that are not 5% elsewhere this quarter.

Is there an issue buying VR on this card? (cash advance etc)

Also what's the best way to use the grocery category other than actual groceries?
