Amex blue buss officially  gives you 2 points per $ up to $50K. I see Iím above that and they still gave me 2 points. What does that mean? Will they continue giving me that?

Is that a calendar year or a member year?  Perhaps that's the discrepancy.

how long does it take for amex delta bonus to come in?? yes i finished my spend and closed statement
if no issues amex delta bonus usually hits with in a few days of completing the spend. at least that's been my experience with multiple delta card sign ups.

If I have a negative balance with a capital one credit card, can I call them and ask them to send a check for that amount?

Dan has mentioned many times that credit utilization is a significant factor in determining your credit score and that it is, therefore, a good idea to put at least some balance on cards regularly even if the rewards are not that valuable. Is there a minimum necessary for it to register? Does $1 suffice? Thanks.
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

As far as I am aware, even $0.01 works.

I recall reading somewhere a while back that there is some minimum.

its not card by card, the idea is to have the lowest utilization possible, while still having some utilization. So you close one card with a small balance while the remainder have no balance. If you have a balance regardless this is not for you.

Any amount that reports works. AFAIK no bank reports under $2.
