Good afternoon everyone, I hope your weekend is off to a great start. A few weeks ago, Doctor of Credit wrote a post about an AT&T cash back deal through Bank of America. The deal was simple, make 2 AT&T purchases of $15 or more between April 22 and July 20 and get a $50 cash back statement credit. $15 x 2 = $30 – $50 cash back = $20 money maker. But I have AT&T, so I would have had to pay the bill anyway, so this was more like a $45 money make since I normally pay for AT&T with my Chase Ink Plus Business Credit Card. Anyway, it was an easy decision and I made 2 payments to AT&T: $15.01 and $15.02. Those purchases posted to my Bank of America credit card on April 24. Fast forward to May 7 (~14 days later) and I got the $50 cash back statement credit.
Good morning everyone, happy Friday! 2 weekends ago, I was flying back home from Hawaii on Alaska Airlines. Everything was going well until we got to Maui airport. We were supposed to depart from Maui (OGG) at 4:15pm and land in Oakland (OAK) at 12:14am. Unfortunately, our flight departed 5 hours later than planned. Our inbound aircraft was coming from San Diego (SAN) and was supposed to depart San Diego at 7am. But due to mechanical issues, that flight departed 10 hours later at 5pm (I feel bad for people on that flight who were stuck at the airport for 10+ hours). The late inbound flight caused our flight to be delayed by 5 hours. I was tracking both Alaska Airlines flights and here were the last flight emails I received for each flight.
Good morning everyone, happy Saturday! Thanks for the comments on yesterday’s post regarding which non-5/24 Chase credit cards I should get. I think I have narrowed down my App-O-Rama (AOR) credit card list to these 7 credit cards. I plan on applying for these credit cards sometime next week. Please let me know if you agree or disagree with any of the credit cards on this list. If there are any credit cards that you think are worth applying for, please share them in the comments and I will check them out.
Based on yesterday’s post, I will apply for these 2 Chase credit cards:
- Chase Marriott Business Credit Card: This is the only non-5/24 Chase business credit card and who couldn’t use more Marriott points? The current sign up bonus is 75,000 Marriott points after spending $3,000 in 3 months. The $99 annual fee is waived the first year. I already have the Chase Marriott Rewards Credit Card, so the annual category 1-5 Marriott free night certificates will pair nicely with each other. I don’t plan on spending much on this credit card after meeting the minimum spend requirement. As long as I can redeem the Marriott free night certificate for more than an $99 hotel night, this is a decent credit card to hold on to for a long time. *snarky comment alert* If Marriott keeps devaluing their program, by the year 2029, there will not be any Marriott category 1-5 hotels left…
- Chase Iberia Credit Card: Since you can get 1 personal and 1 business credit card from Chase on the same day, I have decided to go for this personal credit card. The current sign up bonus is 50,000 Avios after spending $3,000 in 3 months and an additional 25,000 Avios after spending $10,000 in 12 months. The annual fee is $95. I don’t plan on booking any Iberia flights in the near future, so I won’t be able to take advantage of the 10% discount on Iberia flights. I don’t plan on spending much on this credit card after meeting the minimum spend requirement and will close the credit card when the annual fee comes due the following year.
Update: The ACH transfer from Comenity to my bank account posted the next business day.
Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend. Over the weekend, I received an email from Comenity regarding my Comenity Virgin America Credit Card. According to the email, I had a $35.43 credit balance in my account. That was strange, I closed my Comenity Virgin America Credit Card back in October 2017. I logged into my Comenity account and checked out the recent credit card statement to see what was going on.
