  • Cardholders with a Chase checking account in older program

I see that Chase Pay has a button to add each card to Samsung Pay, or once it is already added, to pay with Samsung Pay. Is that what you are referring to?

I don't know of that being a problem.  My husband and I use the same computer to log into our ccc accounts.  Frequently one right after another.
Yes, they're different products.

I can't find the right thread, sorry.

With the current 5% categories I can get at Lord and Taylor if I shop thru Chase web portal it's +2%. So my question is would that total 7% or is one or the other?
It's worth too much.

You can't find the thread because portals aren't discussed on this forum. It's the former.

I don't what amazing free service you're talking about, the people who run this site can't even spell "merino" correctly.
