Churnable to get repeated 5x rewards?

Not possible

Update April 16, 2016: Still Not Churnable
__________________________________________________ _____________

How to pay down CL quickly?
ACH push from other banks to wells fargo checking and then use that to pay credit card

Likely to get shut down if...?
- Have a negative balance
- Have a really high balance
- Cycling several times through your CL
- Calling in and getting caught by human eyes for suspicious activities.

To check what your 5X/5% window is:
In the rewards account, go to My Rewards -> Account Activity and the days left on the promo will show up at the top....looks like a pie chart.

To check which transactions get 5X/5% before your statement posts
Now, to check if new transactions are eligible for 5X before statement closes, go to "My Rewards" on the top and click "Activity" and set the start/end dates. You should see a "bonus earning" for 4% extra cash back for anything that's eligible.

Caps on 5x / 5%??
There are no more caps.

What to do when transaction not going through due to FA?
Human @ fraud prevention line is 877-575-0462 (to verify charges if locked out) (Update 3-3-15 - Phone number no longer in service per this post)
Automated response number was 800-446-0664

So, apparently that's wrong. Points posted today, 1 day after they were supposed to post. Perhaps because yesterday was Sunday

I'm not understanding the new cap on this (Sig) card. Or maybe I am.

Is it now "new accounts" have the 5x capped at 62,500 pts of bonus.

Cutoff rule

If the promotion period ends, say, today, will a transaction performed today count if it posts 1-2 days later?

That's what I'm seeing too, but no mention in this thread. I wondering if it's a recent change?
