I'm sure it will be delicious!  It's like I just tuned into the Adkins cooking show 😜 


Ha! Thanks! 😄


Leave it in window sill to cool and send me your coordinates ...


Pie Thief!!!


I think they just want to taste it...you know... for quality assurance purposes 😂


I am curious how it's going to turn out. HEB was out of my usual sugar substitute so I used their brand. I'll let y'all know! 😄


If it's Spenda equivalent IME it won't be a problem.

Chase has managed to surprise me yet again.

 

My history with Chase.

 

2008 - Opened Checking and Savings 

2010 - Chase closed my accounts due to mismanagement on my part.

2018 - Opened Amazon Visa $8500 SL This marked the place in my rebuild where I could begin to get decent cards with decent limits.

2021- Opened Joint Checking with DD and savings

for myself.

2021- Opened IHG Premier MC - $17200 SL.

2021 - Yesterday- Recieved email from Chase that they were raising the limit on my Amazon Card from $8500 to $25500. 

 


I almost spit my drink out choking on that CLI!!!! GAAAAAF!!!!!!!! Wowie!!!!


That was my reaction too, spefically since it was unrequested and they have not given me one before.

As i reported in an ealier post the folks at Amex took away over $20,000 of dw credit limits because she was not "worthy."   $10K each on BCP and Magnet.   Well today they are now showing the $10,000 on her Magnet is back.    I never complained to them or anything but was tempted.

I did pay down on her balances arround $5,000 to $7,000 though but only a little on Amex.    Now can you explain this?   They however have not lower her interest rate back yet however to its 14%.   She has no lates charge offs are anything.  


Amex is Amex. 🤷 Maybe they liked the pay down? 


All I can say is;

The Rewards Abuse Team (RAT) is a division within American Express that looks into accounts who try to game or abuse the rewards system.

 

AmEx don't like the spend on my New Bus. Blue plus. It was all bus. spend while out of town,

The rep was a clown-face.png.

 

Give $30,000 to someone in college for groceries. (A certain person on this board nailed it!)

 

I get hassled for less than $10K spendSmiley Tongue .. In the end, I got my rewards, cashed them out and closed the card.

I will stick with Chase Ink preffered  card. (never hassled / no matter the charge amounts)

Re: Garden Club - November 2021

Amex has currently extended $30K to me for my grocery card.  Even gave me a SUB to upgrade this year.

 

Realistically, my annual spend across all cards is $20K or so.  Maybe $25K.  My aggregate line is over $300K.

Good morning 

 

I'm actively avoiding cavity search on the big bird. Sigh. Should have just ordered already cooked one. 

 

I know, 1st kitchen problems
