Yeah, I don't see the regular Arrival on the site.
What are the benefits on the regular Arrival?
Gives 2 cents back on utility bills . After downgrading I ended up using it for bills for a while

I'd rather downgrade to a Choice Priveleges Visa. When traveling with the family, I stay quite often at Comfort Suites so it would be better than staying in my drawer  ;)
Why don't you just close it yourself so you can open other cards in its place?

I was recently approved for the Chase United business card. However I need another business card.

Does anyone know what the best offers are currently for business cards, making a spend of 5k or less?

Thanks!

Why not?
I have read some reports that due to a law about minimum time to let you pay it can roll over to the next month  but I couldn't confirm, hence the question

I have two United Explorer MileagePLUS cards. Wanna downgrade them to no annual fee cards. 1. Will I lose my accumulated miles by doing so?? 2. Is the United Gateway the best (or only) no AF United card to downgrade to? Thanks!

No, you should be able to retain your miles. Confirm with rep before downgrading.
 I've done it with the old NO AF card and it worked fine.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Thanks. I do believe I read on DD somewhere that the miles do not get lost but need to search where I saw it.... The rep will probably say I will lose them, no? Don't they usually try those tactics?

No. Don't think so.
  Just call and ask what no AF card they have to offer.

If you're under 5/24 and don't plan on opening more than 4-5 cards in 5/24.

 Open this card with the bonus and then close your other card. Or just downgrade. But i doubt they'll offer you a sign up bonus.

2) only

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

I'm pretty sure you're referring to the Citi card, but that benefit is no longer offered.

I'm trying to book a flight but my Membership Rewards are currently frozen "for 6-12 weeks" as AMEX reviews my account to make sure all spend fits criteria. In retrospect I probably triggered it by trying to transfer MR around a month after opening a Gold card. In the meantime my father is willing to lend me the miles I need (transfer to his airline account and I'll book a ticket from there). My question is, when my account is unfrozen can I transfer MR points to my father if he is an AU on my card? I'm talking about transferring Membership Rewards points to his account, not partner airlines.
Life's not about doing things good, its about doing good things.
