Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I guess we'll have to see if this was a temporary problem or if this is the new normal. Anybody out there with refundables data points?

newish cardholders go into pending. If you're more established they usually post right away.

Update- bonus from 12/8 spend posted today.
good news, but the main issue seems from 12/9 and onward.
