Good morning everyone, happy Friday! A few days ago, there was a great AMEX Offer that came out from AT&T Small Business Wireless where you could earn 2,000 Membership Reward Points for making a qualifying purchase of $200 or more. To make the AMEX Offer even better, you could use that AMEX Offer up to 3 times per enrolled card and get up to 6,000 Membership Reward Points. Frequent Miler and Doctor of Credit were the first I saw to cover the AMEX Offer. Even though the AMEX Offer was only targeted to American Express business cards and supposed to be for business wireless purchases, I decided to see what would happen when I made a $200 payment to my AT&T Wireless account (I do use AT&T service for my blog). If you are interested, here are the full AMEX Offer terms:
Buenos dias everyone. I got a voicemail last Sunday afternoon from a Citi fraud prevention representative in Jacksonville, Florida asking me to call in to verify some recent charges. In retrospect, the fact that they were calling on Easter Sunday might have been a red flag, but at the time I didn’t think anything of it, and actually forgot about the call until I tried to place an order with PayPal Digital Gifts using my Citi AT&T Access More Credit Card and got an error message. When I logged into my Citi account, I got a popup message informing me that my charging ability may be limited, and found the following message attached to my Citi AT&T Access More Credit Card:
Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. I was in Washington, D.C. over the weekend for the third annual Boarding Area Conference (BACON for short). I learned a lot and have a lot of work to do to get my blog to the next level. The Boarding Area team and myself will be making changes to the site, so you may notice a few minor changes to the header and sidebar over the next few weeks. If any of the changes look bad or don’t work as well as they did before, please let me know and I will take a look at the issue.
Without further ado, let’s talk about the $650 statement credit that is the sign up bonus for the Citi AT&T Access More Credit Card. My credit card statement just closed a few days ago and I was pleasantly surprised / anxiously waiting for the statement credit to post to my account. If you followed my instructions on How to Purchase New Apple iPhone 7 with Citi AT&T Access More Credit Card, you should be fine.
Good evening everyone, happy Friday (aka Apple iPhone 7 / 7 Plus pre-order day)! In this post, I will show you step-by-step instructions on how to purchase a new iPhone 7 using your Citi AT&T Access More Credit Card. Unfortunately, this credit card is not currently accepting new applications, but hopefully Citi / AT&T bring in back in the near future. The sign up bonus on this credit card is great – purchase a new AT&T phone and get reimbursed up to $650. Luckily or unluckily, the new iPhone 7 is a little more expensive than $650, so I will get the full $650 statement credit. In July, I shared some info about the AT&T Credit Card card art and earning details, but if you want to learn *absolutely everything* about this credit card, please read Doctor of Credit’s post: All you need to know about Citi AT&T $650 Phone Offer.
To purchase your new iPhone 7 with your Citi AT&T Access More Credit Card, log into your Citi online account and go to your Citi AT&T Access More Credit Card. You should see a little box with a View Offer link. Click that link to get started.
Good morning everyone, TGI Friday! Earlier this week, I wrote My Upcoming App-O-Rama Credit Card Strategy – I need your Feedback! I really appreciate all the great feedback you guys gave me and I did my best to incorporate that advice into my App-O-Rama strategy. Last week, my “good” “friend” Julian (aka Devil’s Advocate) over at Travel Codex wrote this post: A New and Better Way To App-O-Rama. In that post, he describes his “Elongated App-O-Rama” strategy where he applies for several cards over a period of days, instead of applying for several cards within minutes of each other (like any sane person would do). Like any good friend,
I listened to his advice and did exactly what he said I adamantly disagreed with his thought process and continued with my App-O-Rama strategy as before.
The one piece of advice that was super helpful to me was knowing which credit card company pulls from which credit bureau. Luckily, my friend Emery has credit monitoring services from all 3 credit bureaus and he told me which credit bureau each credit card company pulled from. Depending on your state, the information will differ, but since we are both in California, the data is reliable:
- US Bank – TransUnion
- Barclays – TransUnion
- Citi – Experian
- Bank of America – Experian
- Comenity – ?
