Topic Wiki

This is the thread where you can ask any random question you have. Feel free to ask even the most basic questions that you otherwise might be embarrassed to ask. This is the thread for beginners, so veterans here will treat you nicely. Ask a beginner's Q in some other threads and no guarantee of that same treatment. ;)
People here want to help, so just have some patience, follow the tips below and hopefully someone will help you when they have a chance.

If you looking for a particular thread you once saw and can't find it, this is not the place to ask. Check out Help Me Find It and ask there.

How to ask a question in this thread:
Click the blue reply button at the top or bottom of the page, type your question, and click post!

Some helpful tips for eliciting answers from other members:
- Keep your question short and precise. No one wants to read a megillah.
- The more questions you ask in one post, the less likely any will be answered. People are willing to answer a question or two, but if you ask all the questions that apply to your particular issue, you're expecting to be spoonfed. Members don't like holding out the spoon, so ask accordingly.

Does the general advice that in-branch applications have easier approvals at chase apply exclusively to personal cards or biz cards as well?
I have a CFF for 3 months there as well

Some say (may he have a speedy recovery) it's better to wait and not call.

Is there a way to get a thread to stop appearing under "New replies to my posts?"

Yes, you have to check the box near it and click on "ignore topic". If you don't see the checkbox, you have to change the settings in your profile, IIRC.
