4 Chase Offer Flash Deals: 20% Cash Back at McDonald’s, Walgreens, Exxon, and Bed Bath & Beyond

Good morning everyone, happy Friday!  I just checked my Chase app and saw 4 new Chase Offers.  These are 2 day long Flash Deals that offer 20% cash back at McDonald’s, Walgreens, Exxon, and Bed Bath & Beyond.  I saw these same Chase Offers on most of my actively used Chase credit cards, so you should have all or some of these offers too.  The Chase Offers are around for 6 days, but as soon as you load / activate each Chase Offer, you only have 2 days to use the offer before it expires.  Scroll down to see more information about each Chase Offer.

US Bank Business Triple Cash Credit Card Application Process & Welcome Documents

Good afternoon everyone, I hope your week is going well.  2 days ago, I wrote Capital One Spark Miles Business Credit Card Application Process & Welcome Documents.  2 weeks ago, I also applied for the US Bank Business Triple Cash Credit Card.  My application was not instantly approved, so I called the US Bank business credit card application status / reconsideration department and asked if I could move some credit from my existing US Bank business credit cards in order to be approved for my new credit card.  The rep said that US Bank did not reallocate credit limits and when I called on October 7, the rep said the credit department was still working on applications from October 1, so 6 days behind.  6 days later, on October 13, my application was approved.

Here is what the front and back of the credit card looks like.  I am not a fan of the mixture of vertical and horizontal elements on the front of the card; and the back of the card looks to simple and a little boring.  It also looks like there is something missing from the bottom left corner on the back.  In this post, I will share details of the application process and the welcome documents I received from US Bank.

Should You Upgrade to the US Bank Altitude Go Credit Card?

Good afternoon everyone, I hope your week is going well.  I just received this email from US Bank letting me know that I could upgrade my US Bank Cash Plus Credit Card to the US Bank Altitude Go Credit Card.  You might get a targeted email like the one below, but if you do not, you can always call the phone number on the back of your US Bank Cash Plus and ask to product change to the US Bank Altitude Go.  Let’s see if the upgrade makes sense.

American Express Changes: No Cash Advance Fee for Precious Metal Coins, Bullion, and Digital Precious Metals Products

Good evening everyone, I hope your weekend is going well.  I was just reviewing my recent American Express statements and saw a few changes regarding cash advance fees, earning bonus points on meal-kit delivery services, losing points when you close an account, late payment fees and the Centurion Lounge Guest Access Policy.  The most interesting change is regarding cash advance fees.  Effective October 1, 2021 (aka now), “precious metal coins or bullion and digital precious metals products” are no longer considered as a cash advance, so those purchases should earn points, miles, and cash back.  This is great news if you buy coins from the US Mint (to keep or resell).  As you might remember, American Express added precious metal coins or bullion and digital precious metals products to their definition of cash advance effective January 15, 2021.  It is good to see American Express changing their mind regarding precious metal coins and bullion.

PSA: Price Match In-Store Items with Online Items from Staples and Office Depot & Stack with Rewards

Good evening everyone, happy Friday.  A few weeks ago, my wife and I received emails regarding our Staples Rewards and Office Depot Rewards.  Somehow, I had $29 in Staples Rewards and my wife had $8.59 in Office Depot Rewards.  This afternoon, I printed out my $29 Staples Reward coupon and went to my local Staples Store to buy some ink for my printer.  Strangely, the price for the ink was more expensive at the Staples Store than on Staples.com.  When I went to check out, I asked the cashier if she would price match to the price on Staples.com and she said yes.  It seemed like a fairly common request to the cashier.  She looked at the price of the ink cartridge on Staples.com on my phone and matched the price.  I was then able to use my Staples Rewards to pay for the item.  In this post, I will show you more information regarding the price match process and show a similar process for Office Depot items.
