Never answered the call so not sure what they want.
Most likely personal returns, even if they ask for biz, you can say it's a SP and you don't file separately for it.

It's much more of a hassle to get approved when you have to send in forms first than it is to pass an FR. Initial approval can take months with a lot of chasing them.

On the bright side, I was planning on spending 100k tonight. It could have been worse!

I have the Hulu AMEX Offer saved on 10 cards, I forgot to change the payment method to one of those before I was billed this month :(

Included the annual fee in the cheshbon of 4k spend for the chase sapphire reserve.
Was $110 short.  Didn't realize till the next billing cycle (120 days later) called twice,  nothing doing (they sent to escalations who refused each time)
I tweeted,  this time they said policy would allow for an extra 25 days but I had missed that so too bad.
Anything to do?

Probably a common mistake, but annoying.
I didn't cancel some things in my S&S in time.
I got the 'last chance' email over the weekend, so I missed it and yesterday was the last day to dump them.   :( :-[
You can go to the actual order and cancel it from there if it's still in "not yet shipped" status

Had 1 item on s&s and forgot about it. Called and told me it was too late to cancel once it shipped but they refunded me the amount and let me keep the item.
