However, the wonderful gracious folks at Uber were willing to forgive the sin of stupidity and give me the $25 credit.

hit the wrong flight when booking a united flight on a cancelled ticket, booked with $50 change fee. realized several hours later and called to change the flight, and had to pay $75 same day flight change fee. I tried to get it waived, didn't have the patience for multiple HUCA's.



ETA: Somewhat redeemed, just called back to change another ticket, and got them to waive the change fee.

I listened to my banker instead of checking on ddf.  :o
I should  have applied for the Freedom Unlimited the same day as the Sapphire Reserve.  What's another $500 credit once I'm already transferring $10k?!  What a waste of a hard pull on a 1BM.  >:(

As long as points post she will not even respond. Saves the time to cancel.  :)

Why not try to pass? You'll have to do it at some point in the future anyway.

Only the business card is under FR?

That is all she has besides AU's. When she applies for the personal it will be no problem but the business is new and has no revenue at this point.
