Also...Chase is showing the 1 qtr category: gas stations, movie theaters, and Starbucks.


Bah, categories are absolutely worthless to me.

 

But that is 40% cash back on the first $500 of spending, and I WAS planning to app for chase Freedom in December anyways Smiley Wink  Smiley Wink

 

Edit: guess I can just buy a $500 Amazon.com gift card before the end of the year...

I would try again, first time I heard of them not honoring it and you just got it. 

 

Send it to general topics or something instead of rewards inquiry. 

 

Also post the link and be nice about it. I was able to get my 10k and I just nagged them about a targeted offer this weekend then this public offer popped up.

Lol

This point should be stressed more here an app spree should not be encouraged because its not for every profile
A thick file will support more apps at one time while a thin file may see negative reaction to this process

IMHO 4+ at one time is to many for a new file and it should be kept to 1-3 a year but we get caught up sometimes in seeing the little wheel spin and the words approved

Guessing I would be correct in assuming that I still shouldn't app for it.
