Signed up for a few inks through a referral link, then downgraded the original card the link came from to an ink cash before receiving the bonuses. Now the bonuses aren't posting automatically.

It's gonna be an uncomfortable call, when they ask for the info of the people that signed up, and remark on the remarkable similarity between our names (and SSNs).
Can't do each one separate call?

Two of them were someone else, but the one I did for myself is gonna be  problematic if they notice.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Just logged onto my Southwest account and saw that my 16k miles expired because I didn't earn in the last 24 months (they expired a week ago and I'm taking a paid flight in a week). I thought it was any activity not just accrual.

I use the rapid rewards shopping portal a few times a year , it has kept my miles alive.

Made a large order from Nordstrom and they canceled one item because it was OOS  >:(
Excuse the ignorance, what were you trying to accomplish that was messed up because they were oos on one item?

Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.
