HUCA tips:

1) To avoid being told "You already called about this and were told no". The trick is to call about other things in the middle, so when the rep looks at the notes of the last few calls it's other stuff.

2) To avoid speaking to the same rep you just spoke to. The trick is to use 2 phones, so when the tzaddik answers, you quickly call on the other line and ensure you get a different one.

dont know if theres a list but if there isnt i think we should make one..... names of banks, names of ppl that helped you, time and day that you called and how easy it was to get approved.

My AA FF number has an "X" in it. I always say "X as in ex-wife". The men always like me after that, and the women don't.

On the 7th HUCA I finally got my Chase Freedom approved. It was part of an earlier 4BM, Hyatt, BA, SP and Freedom. I had to PUTPAC and HUCA for all the cards besides the Hyatt which was instantly approved. I was told repeatedly that I couldn't get more then 2 new cards within 30 days. For the BA, my 3rd card I only had to HUCA twice. The Freedom took 7 calls, calls 3-6 I was told " we already told you we can't approve it, why are you still calling and asking?" Call 7 was a cinch, I verified some information from the app, moved 3K from my BA card and I can now successfully close out my 4BM.

Funny, i used to write down the names of reps when HUCAing many times in a row. (For my first Chase credit card i HUCA'd twenty one times till i finally got approved!! :P)
 But i stopped when i realized these companies are huge and what are the odds i'm gunna get the same rep twice in a row...?!
Has anyone gotten the same rep twice in a shot??
Common sense...isn't so common.

Not me personally but many here have gotten same rep at least twice in a shot.
It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.
