Thanks from this lurker!

Hi everyone! New lurker-turned-member/poster here.


I just wanted to give a big shout-out to these forums being so helpful to me in the past few months. Without your wisdom, I would never have known to:


  • ask  to PC my no-longer-useful Alaska Airlines Visa (with AF) to the much, much better no AF, no FTF, EMV-enabled Bankamericard Travel Rewards.
  • request a 61-day, 3X credit limit increase on my AMEX card. (did that today!)


The only downside is that I can't stop looking for that next card to apply for! My next move will probably have to be joining the Garden Club, if know what's good for me. :smileytongue:


Thanks again to everyone for their help!

EX: 758 (10/12), TU: ???, EQ: ???
