HT: FT

Citi in NY pulls from either Equifax or Experian or both. YMMV even by the same person.

If you live in NJ or NY, you should freeze your Experian. They will only pull Equifax then. Otherwise, YMMV.

FOR MORE INFO, READ FT'S WIKI - IT IS PHENOMENAL, FT WIKI

Quote from the above mentioned FT WIKI:
For the most part, freezing Experian, or another bureau, will not cause Citi to pull a different bureau. They will almost certainly require you to unfreeze the bureau they wish to pull or deny your application. Some people have been successful providing the PIN but others have not. Mostly, freezing a credit bureau in an attempt to force Citi to pull a different one seems to waste time, money, and effort for little result. But YMMV.

DDF data points (As of 10/2015)
NY- pulls both EQ/EX, can still get instant approval with EX frozen
CA, OH, PA, TX- ONLY EX. Citi will refuse to pull other bureau

Benefits:..
New no forex fees starting Nov.'15

From FT Wiki:"Important exception: If you receive a Platinum World MC which is later converted to a World Elite MC (as indicated on the back of the card), the opening of that card will no longer count for purposes of the 18-month rule. This is true not only for conversions in early 2015, but also for those in more recent months.
Note: It makes no difference when (or whether) you activate the World Elite card. If you have the WE card in hand, then the conversion on Citi's books is already complete. There is nothing magical about activating it.
There are a few reports that some Gold World MC are being converted to Gold World Elite MC and that will no longer count for purposes of the 18-month rule."
UPDATE: As of 02/18/2016 (for applications after 02/09/2016), the W>WE loophole may be dead.

Is this just for AA tickets? or anything that is beeing retuurned? It sounded from Dan upthread that even on non AA refunds... If so what the heck does AA have to stick in their ugly nose? (they are known to be nasty to people that do all kind of shtick, sellin miles etc....)
They are not interested in being duped is my guess for their reaction

ever think that
1. either the person who showed it to him didnt want it posted Publicly.
2. posting it publicly could harm someone.

He was doing a favor and warning people, would you have preferred him not say anything at all? This conversation boggles my mind

You have a lot to learn. Information learned in private can have any number of restrictions put on it.

But if its not a AA ticket how would they even know about it?

1. Is there any proff on a non AA refund?
2. Was there a clear reason given?

While you may agree with the sentiment, you shouldn't condone the childish name-calling, IMHO.

1) It seems they have some way of tracking it based on Dan's source (which as he said is irrefutable) so I would bank on that evidence
2) Not that I am aware of

Obviously if it's not cancelled yet then they can't shut you down.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Ok if so why didn't he warn us before? And if he just found out about it now why would he make this comment prior to finding out:
Always have to read the fare rules.
So many people get messed over thinking they're so smart doing this stuff...
All I can say is that it seems there may be more to this whole story....
