ON MY MIND
I called Barclays Reconsideration line 866-408-4064 and talked with the nicest fellow who asked a few questions about my income and my job after confirming it was me…”You have done very well in handling your credit” he said, puts me on hold for a minute and then he approved me, “card will be in the mail shortly”. A few hours later I received the welcome email with the usual data (but NO mention of 35k signing bonus!). I had this card last year and canceled it back in November 2012 right after I received the 10k anniversary bonus (and before annual fee hit!). I went for the 35k offer…I am not going to sue about it:-)
So I am 3 out of 4 (personal AA Amex and Business AA card for 50k each were instatnly approved!). Only denial was the US Bank for the Club Carlson business card. It has been years since I was last denied! I will call on Monday and try to convince them I know how to handle credit very well:-)
I sensed that Barclays may be a lot more receptive to approving applicants now that it appears that Citibank will be the primary AA credit card!
I still have not received the 60k SPG points I won almost two months ago! They were sent to Starwood on January 15th! And there is still a pending change in my credit card from my last Starwood stay over two weeks ago. SPG told me to contact the accounting department at the hotel and when I call I can never leave a message. Massive SPG fail. Yeah, I like Hiltons better, this crap does not happen there!
There are some bloggers out there who are totally oblivious of the happenings with the US Air credit card offers! They just took two minutes to make a blog post to serve the affiliate link. That, dear readers, is just inexcusable!
Wife/daugher landed safely in Singapore. Wife’s email about the flights:
The A380 Singapore Airilnes flight was awesome! But the Newark to Zurich on United was awfully crappy because the entertainment broke, S____ was so disappointed, she read a book instead!
February 15 and still missing two 1099s, come on!
In Delta’s official blog you will find this infographic (I think you must be logged into your google account to see it). Of course all the good stuff. Delta conveniently forgot to add 99.3% of Skymiles members never managed to redeem on the lower level before trying for hours and almost shooting themselves from the frustration!
