Is there a particular BG that people recommend?  or 1 that is safer than others?  are there some that are high risk/ high reward and others that are low risk low reward or is it all the same?

I ordered 2 items for a group and it was delivered 1/25 and 1/26. It took them a week to scan them in, (standard in this situation) but now that they scanned them in today 2/3, they added a 1$ commission. The wats app message with the additional commission being added wasn’t sent out till 1/31….

Am I supposed to/have to tell them? It’s only 2$ but it’s yiddishe gelt……(theirs not mine)
Yes. Like if a cashier gives you wrong change in a store.

Submit a ticket and let them decide what to do.

Chat with one rep while calling another to maximize your odds? Id assume they have total rights to do that - so your best bet is HUCA'ing till you find a sympathetic rep.

I'm not a lawyer but s.IX of their terms and conditions seems to give them that right. I don't see why they'd have an obligation to cancel your order. While I feel for you this is one of the (many) risks of the game.

If I were you I'd use the other $980 ASAP, or at least before you call and ask for an exception. They could just shut the whole account if they want, and you never know if the rep may dig a little when you call again, especially if you escalate it.

As pointed out already I would use what you have. Then HUCA and see if you can get the missing ones reinstated. If not look at it as a cost of doing business and move on.

interesting to note that most of MYS' current deals are now 1-2% below cost. I realize it's not a huge amount but it does add up, especially when there are competitors that don't underpay.

interesting, i missed that in the terms and conditions....so i would imagine my chances of getting it back are pretty nil...escpecially cause i found this online on consumer affairs...

----I made several purchases of clearance backpacks back in October 2015 and I donated most of them to the Schools on Wheels Charity https://www.sowma.org/. I was supposed to have 8,000 something points and Kohl's did not issue them. They confiscated them cause I spent too much money in too short of a time in their stores. What I bought were clearance backpacks that I donated to charity.

I was on the phone with customer service several times and they kept giving an excuse that I was fraudulently reselling them so that's why they took them away. They never notified me about taking them away I had to call and find out why I didn't get my reward certificates. Yet a crazy mom makes a video that goes viral and Kohl's issues her 10,000 points yet takes away 8,300+ points from a customer that spent their hard earned dollar in their stores to donate items they bought to charity. This company will never regain me as a customer unless they fix the issue they created and make a resolution.----

now i have a new dilema. i have 980 (was supposed to be 4460) to be used by 2/21/22, and another 1140 that will only become active 3/1/22 and can be used for the whole month of March. so obviously i should quickly use up the 980, the question is do i...

a)after using up the 980 asap, dont escalate again, wait till 3/1/22, use up the new batch of 1140 and then escalate and say hey where is my missing 3480 from back in feb? the advantage of that is that i dont risk them closing my account NOW and losing the 1140, but the disatvantage is then i make my chances of regaining the missing 3480 even less bec its already past the usage date?

or

B)after using up the 980 asap, i complain and ask where my missing 3480 is... the advantage of that is that i increase the chance of getting my 3480 back bec it is still in the usage period, but the disatvantage is that I increase the risk of it being escalated and shut down and losing the other 1140 for march...

im leaning to choice A but would like to hear opinions...

so in regards to the risk of getting shut down by credit cards when paying off balances by 3rd parties.
Does it help if I add my friend as a additional cardmember, and he pays off balance from his bank account directly?

Is there a particular BG that people recommend?  or 1 that is safer than others?  are there some that are high risk/ high reward and others that are low risk low reward or is it all the same?

personally i am very happy with EMB, very fast check in times and when u request a check u get it in within a day or two max, sometimes even a few hours later....hard to reach for customer service though so if i have a issue i just message the guy on watsapp and push a few times....

other groups ive had to wait close to 2-3 weeks for check in and 2-3 weeks for a check.... YMMV of course
