BTW, I think Delta was a winner here. They're a pretty aggressive negotiator, and their re-up with Amex came in the wake of Amex losing Costco. Delta has been bragging about how much they expect to...

I used the concierge there last March for a few requests, and they were pretty helpful. As is typical for Tokyo hotels, when I arrived, they had color coded, printed maps for me with all of the info.

Well, these programs for these benefits must not have been a big success in Citi's eyes. If they were, they'd be offsetting losses from the Costco deal, so there would be no reason to cut them.

Plenty of us don't use it as often or as profitably as we'd like, but we still think we might in the future, so we keep the card. Yes, we want to subsidize the 4S and Aman travelers.

On the lifetime discussion: I'll never make it with Hyatt, which is fine. It's the dollar qualifier. If it was on nights, I'd have a chance. That's obviously how I got it with Marriott.

Chase seems to be a little itchy to shut down deposit accounts - they may give them more scrutiny than credit card accounts. When a customer gets a deposit account shutdown, the customer's credit...

I'm not happy that Citi is removing all of these protections, but I also have to say, I've never used a single one of them.

Granted, that's often the nature of insurance, but I'm pretty likely to...

I can't say I've ever heard of this before and while I agree that the auto-fill suggestion above could be related, surely the SSN couldn't get overwritten by auto-fill.

The gospel has long been, if you want to preserve your credit card relationships with Chase, don't have deposit accounts with Chase.

We'll never know the specific reason here, but this recent...

I can't even register for their current (almost useless) promo.

I love that they are able to make Hyatt IT look good.

Agreed. My June statement just cut and my pending points appear to be correct.
