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.

I have many au's on my SPG consumer, is there any advantage of making separate login for all of them, or i can still get all the twitter and online promotions for each card, even if they're all on the same login?

For Twitter offers it does not make a difference, however, you will not be able to see if you have any of the targeted non-Twitter offers.

So.. Does that mean that every login has a chance to be targeted, no matter the amount of cards on that login?

In other words... I'd better make a login for each one on its own..

I don't think it has to do with the login, i think it has to do with the card, no?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I thought he was talking about if your ay's aren't registered. He knows better than me, wait for him to respond.

I'm sorry, I'm not that good with short messages...

If I understood your question/reply correctly, then... I don't have SSN numbers, only DOB on all of them, and are you saying I should make a separate login FOR EACH AU?

If they don't have a SSN you may not be able to add them. but if you could then yes there are extra benefits per login

I don't know if this makes a difference, should have mentioned it earlier...
Do the names on the cards make a difference to how  many times you'll be targeted even though theres no SSN
I.E. I got like 40 au's but every 10 is a different name...

Still working on the slow intro to MS.  Since Redbird is gone, what are people doing now?  I am looking for strategy that won't raise any red flags.  Can you send me in the right direction?  I have SERVE, and I can always do the paypal option, but I'm afraid of using it too often.
