With the new terms (excluding GCs from earning points) going into effect starting tomorrow, anyone with a sizable pending rewards balance would be wise to let off and let those points clear next statement. Even if their system doesn't flag GCs automatically, the new terms give them powers to shut down accounts and forfeit points, if they choose to do a manual review.
These are good points and good advice. I also cycle the line and wait for the charges to post first or at least I avoid having a negative balance. My line always increases immediately after whatever payment has posted. I have paid through WF checking, BofA checking (linked to WF) and 2 different Serve accounts. Only the Serve payments take awhile to be received by WF but that's not on WF. I've had the card 3 months, stopped getting fraud alerts 2 months ago (after constant flagging).
