If I understand the timeline correctly your original Everyday Preferred application was after July 2017. If that's accurate, those restrictions were in the terms at the time you applied, and you could have known. I realize it's tedious, but it really is important to READ the terms of card offers before you apply, because they do change. After awhile you'll come to know where to read carefully, and where to skim. It's also worth knowing that once in awhile a restriction does not appear in the offer, but is displayed with the application, so keep reading even after you click [Apply].
