I'm getting 2 new cards in next week: Chase Hyatt & Citi Visa. Does anyone have recent info on whether those cards are subject to cash advance categorization?

I saw a post a few pages back on a fee imposed for the Citi Visa, but I thought maybe that poster selected the wrong category.

Input appreciated, thanks.

Citi Visa still works for me. I used it this month in AP without CA fee.

I think it was misread. I never got a fee. I just got an 'advert' for balance transfer right next to it.

Which makes me think someone at Citi is thinking of it too much

Thanks for the input.

I've been able to send AP payments using both the Citi AA Visa and Citi AA Amex this month as purchases (no fees attached).

Ouch. But to be fair I don't think anyone was using one IP address to create or even access multiple accounts. Each of my three accounts are completely separate aside from my name. Different CCs, different banks (where applicable), different addresses, and always use different computers to access.

Why should this email mean they are monitoring IP addy's? I think it means nothing more than a friendly notice to let you know activity on your account has occured and if it's not you (meaning fraud) you should let them know ASAP.

I received this same email for very different computers in very different locations for the spouse's account. They were simply trying to verify the primary address on the account. Why is it wrong for 2 different people within the same household to have an AP account?

This email does NOT proved that AP is monitoring IP addresses.

+1^

That was exactly my point. In my case, we are in separate states at the moment, so no where near the same IP addresses.

I really think it's a friendly notice of account activity.;)

That doesn't mean different IPs unless you're using a different internet connection for each of those computers. Once you get past your router, it all looks like its coming from the same IP.

Yes of course. It would be silly to use two different physical computers on the same internet connection and expect different IP addresses. I assumed that this was assumed in my post. :)

touche. wanted to make sure others made that assumption as well.

I could have written it more clearly. Thanks for the clarification.
