I just think it doesn't make sense. If they wanted to be cheap, they would not allow the work around. And believe me, they know about it. Their twitter team actually instructs people with...

Yes, but the pre-COVID-19 credits are not eligible to be turned into points. If you want to do that, you need to first extend their expiration by using them on a ticket and canceling it by the 7th.

I called to confirm. Spoke to a supervisor. Was told that the 5x grocery offer will only work if it is explicitly mentioned in the referral link. The personal "refer a friend" links do not currently...

Price Protection on Chase Freedom?

I just received my card today. This benefit was not listed online and it does not appear in my account, but the welcome booklet they sent me includes price protection. I assume that the booklet is...

Good point. I should have said "nothing of value to me." Of course I wasn't hoping for points; I wanted a statement credit to cover the AF.

When I called (on the same card) I was offered nothing of value. 1.99% interest for 6 months. Of course I pay my balance in full every month, so this is useless to me. Probably stuck hanging on to...

Not from my perspective. I've "paid myself back" just shy of $6k so far, and I've still got over 1 million UR points to burn. I expect to be able to redeem another $3k more by the end of September.

Remember that hospitalizations and deaths are lagging indicators. I don't think that you can safely say that you are out of the woods yet. It will take a week or two to see if the spike in diagnoses...

Success

This morning's call was pretty easy, though a bit slow. I contacted the folks at 877-260-0087, but was transferred to 888-609-7805. The first number was, apparently, international and my application...

Declined for a Chase Freedom card

Hilarious but kind of annoying. I don't think I've ever been turned down for a credit card by anyone before. My credit rating ranges from 825 to 850, depending on the bureau. I pay off my balances in...

I have kept mine. Price protection is the only reason. That tends to cover the cost of the card for me. I appreciate the ability to buy what I want when and where I want and then price match to a...

I don't think this means that the purchase does not earn points. I think it is talking about eligibility for the "pay yourself back" program. Once you pay yourself back for a purchase, it will be...

So far as we've seen, they are not taking back the points earned on that spend. It's certainly not mentioned in the terms of the promotion. It is reasonable to believe that a credit on your card in...

One other thing. Have you checked carefully that there have been no changes to your itinerary? I had a SFO-LHR RT booked for July 15-August 3. Though United never notified me of a change, I noticed...
