Re: EZ PASS Replenishments

For anyone who has it, Chase says tolls count as travel, so if EZ Pass' merchant category code is right, it could earn 2% on the Preferred.

Re: EZ PASS Replenishments

Remember to read your EZ-Pass contract.  They retain the right to hard set your replenishment amount based upon a 3 month average, and you must call CS to have it reduced.  I found this out the hard way when my father in law had a heart attack and we had to take the triboro bridge (NYC to Queens/Long Island) every day to visit him.  There are ingress and egress tolls of $6.50 (13 bucks round trip), and based upon my usage (every day as he was hospitalized there for over 3 months) EZ-Pass decided to make my replenishment amount $500.00.  Also be aware that it can take up to 48 hours for them to credit the replenishment to your account.  I was ticked off that they could somehow justify charging me 1k in the course of 36 hours, but this is what happens when you don't read the fine print.  Sometimes I we need to learn our lessons the hard way, they usually tend to stick better then anyways.  I still use my EZ-Pass, but have taken a more active role in reviewing my account.

Annoyingly, FasTrak (the San Francisco Bay Area version of EZ Pass) auto-load charges are coded as "Tax, Legal & Financial services." So I use Freedom 10 & 10 instead of CSP.

TU FICO: 800 (2/1/14) | CK Score: 802 (2/1/14) | CS Score: 805 (2/1/14)

J.P. Morgan Palladium ($250k) | AmEx Platinum (NPSL) | AmEx SPG Personal/Business ($50k/$50k) | Citi Executive AAdvantage WEMC ($50k) | Citi Dividend WEMC ($50k) | Chase Sapphire Preferred VS ($50k) | Chase Ink Bold WEMC ($50k Flex) | Chase Ink Plus WEMC ($25k) | Chase Freedom VS ($25k) | Chase Freedom WMC ($25k) | Chase MileagePlus Explorer ($25k) | Chase Southwest RR Plus Business/Personal ($15k/$15k) | Barclays US Airways ($25k) | Barclays Hawaiian Airlines ($25k) | BofA Alaska Airlines ($10k) | Lexus Financial Services ($30k) | Mercedes-Benz Financial Services ($50k)
