Good evening everyone, I hope your week is going well. I was just checking my Chase credit card accounts and saw that the $75 annual fee posted on my old Chase Hyatt Credit Card. Effective January 11, 2021, Chase will convert all cardmembers who have the old Chase Hyatt Credit Card to the new $95 annual fee Chase World of Hyatt Credit Card. Since I have never had the new card, I am planning on closing the old card and then applying for the new card to get the sign up bonus. I decided to call Chase to see if they could waive the $75 annual fee anyway, but the rep said no. I told the rep that I would think about it and call back later if I decide to close the card. I plan on calling back in a few days to close the card and transfer my credit limit over to one of my other Chase cards.
Good morning everyone, I hope your week is going well. A few days ago, I wrote Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card Application & Reconsideration Process. In that post, I wrote about my application, reconsideration, and approval process to get the new Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card. Long story short, I had to send physical copies of my driver’s license, social security card, and a utility bill in my name to Barclays to verify my identity (even though I am an existing Barclays credit card holder). That was just the first of many strange things related to this credit card. In this post, I will go through some of the other strange things I noticed. But first, here is the front and back of the credit card (nothing strange here).
Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. I just received an email from Frequent Traveler University (FTU) about their new online annual membership. I have attended many FTU events in previous years and “attended” the virtual Chicago Seminars organized by Stefan at Rapid Travel Chai a few weeks ago and had a great time. The cost for the FTU online annual membership is only $49 and comes with a variety of benefits and a private Facebook community. Read on to see everything that is included in the membership.
Good morning everyone. Earlier today I wrote Chase Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card Application Process & Reconsideration Phone Call. In today’s post, I will write about the Barclays Wyndham Rewards Earner Business Credit Card, my application process, and the hoops I had to jump through to get approved via the reconsideration process. First off, the Barclays Wyndham Earner Business is a relatively new credit card from Barclays but the credit card has some great features. The sign up bonus is 45,000 Wyndham Rewards Points after spending $1,000 in 3 months. You also get Wyndham Diamond Elite Status (great for matching to Caesar’s Diamond Elite Status), 10% rebate on redeemed points toward free nights, and 15,000 points every anniversary you keep your credit card, all for a $95 annual fee. I was hoping for an instant approval on my credit card application, but Barclays had other plans for me.
Good morning everyone, I hope your weekend is going well. A few days ago, I wrote My October 2020 Credit Card App-O-Rama Results. In that post, I wrote about my experience applying and getting approved for 2 business credit cards: Bank of America Alaska Airlines Business Credit Card and American Express Delta SkyMiles Gold Business Credit Card. In today’s post, I will talk about my wife’s application and approval process for the Chase Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card. When Laura applied 2 weeks ago, the sign up bonus was for 5 free night certificates (up to 50,000 Marriott Bonvoy Points per night) after spending $5,000 in 3 months. Unfortunately, that offer ended on October 28.
According to my calculations, Laura had a Chase score of 3/24, so I assumed she would be instantly approved for this credit card. Unfortunately, that was not the case. Here is what I learned about the approval process and how she was able to get approved for the new credit card.
