Should I spend another $4k by other means or should I be good to go? Thanks
I think SM are dead for DL AX spend counting. I would look at other choices that are still working (Krger etc).

Android user and never used Venmo. GCM and others were working before. Will be testing again after the 1st.

Anyone know how sensitive C1 are towards Simon MS?
Thinking of getting the Spark card and using Simon to hit the 200k bonus by doing 50k over first 6months. Will not be cycling, and will try to balance out over the full time period.

I've never pushed that volume on my Spark card via Simon, but I've done more than that in a six month period via S&S, BJs, Shaws, and WM without issue, but my card is also a few years old now and I ramped up slowly.

good luck with cap1.. They will shut you down for buying GC. I had 2 cap 1 accts. They dont tolerate MS in my experience. And endless FAlerts. Constantly have to call and waste 1/2 hour each time. After 3 calls I was OK..and promised each time it will be OK next time. It was not. Then had to send copy of DL/elec bill. What a scam. They only want low income folks. No MSers allowed. Also both of my sons had the Savor card for the 500.00 bonus. Same thing with them.. Finally was able to buy OV cards in BJ club w/o incident. They also closed my "biz acct" w/o warning. So if you can get buy for a few weeks redeem your awards asap. BTW my sons cancelled the savor 4% cards 1 month after getting bonus. Spent over 2 hours on FA plus had to send documentation etc. Phone calls can talk along time. Plus 3 credit pulls= no go. Plus I was an AU on both cards..after 2 months they sent letters to my sons that I can no longer use my Savor cards due to past "spending not consistent with Business spend". Again.. good luck.

I had a SC card for about a year, they did eventually shut me off but I did about $400K spend in that time. I'd rather do that than do $40K a year forever. However, I always cash out my CB quickly.

Thanks for the feedback, think I will mix it up and blend in some other sources of GC's. The 200k offer is just so tempting.
Good idea to cash out as you go.
