Re: Just Applied for CSP!

Thanks everyone! I'm really happy too!

@thom02099
I searched via the Ultimate Rewards mall and all the prices were about $230 more compared to my Agents pricing? So wouldn't it be better to order through agent Nd get 2% cash back on travel ?

Re: Just Applied for CSP!

Great shot and a hell of a score...Smiley Wink

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Re: Just Applied for CSP!

Congrats!

 

of course the most impressive thing on your credit profile is the 1k limit on the Kohls card!

 

I've been at 300 for 4 years.

Thanks! To be honest, wasn't expecting such a high limit Smiley Happy

@londonogfan
Really? I haven't called them ever since I got the card. Rarely ever shop there anymore, but my wife used to do a ton of shopping. Now that you mention it, I'm going to give them a call and ask for increase. See what they say Smiley Wink

Sounds like you've got a good agent and it really is a YMMV thang.  I've only recently checked trips to NZ and UR was comparable to what was offered elsewhere.  I wonder if the 20% is applied once you put a trip in the cart and get ready to pay?

@thom02099

Yeah that's what I was wondering as well? If its 20% applied afterwards, then the UR mall is definitely a better deal.

Wonder also if there's a difference between domestic vs international flights....and flights only versus package deals.  I've been looking at a "Lord of the Rings" tour of NZ for 15-21 days and they were very competitively priced for packages, at least with my beginning searches.

You only get the 20% if using UR points to pay for travel, so basically 1 UR point is worth 1.25c instread or the typical 1 cent
