Chase Mails Mistake Scare About United Explorer Card Bonus

United Explorer Card

In the middle of March I was really psyched to have Reconsideration Line Success for the Chase United Explorer card.

After receiving mailers quite a few times for a 50,000 miles bonus offer for the United Explorer card, I decided to apply. I was told that I’d get a decision within 30 days. A letter came that I was denied but I was able to call in and get approved. (Check out the link above for more details.)

I’ve since spent more than the required $2,000 spend and have been expecting the bonus miles to post pretty soon.

When I got home from work last night, I had a mailer from Chase which at first looked like a piece of junk but it actually contained some very bad news. Continue reading Chase Mails Mistake Scare About United Explorer Card Bonus

For quite some time I’d been receiving a mailer (or e-mail) to apply for the Chase United Credit¬†Card. I’ve had the card in the past but I felt that it was better to wait.

Then I got the bug. With all kinds of chatter about new rules related to getting approved for Chase cards, I felt I might as well apply for the United card through one of these targeted offers. Continue reading Reconsideration Line Success: Chase United Credit Card

Chase Only Allows $53 From Credit Line To Be Moved

Last year I called to close my United Explorer card but for one reason or another it never happened. I was able to get the $95 annual fee refunded, had most of my credit line moved to another card but then encountered an issue.

The representative moved almost all of my credit line besides a random amount of $1148. It wasn’t the rep. that chose this amount. The computer allowed him to only move so much before it would not work.

Not wanting to lose any of my credit line, the representative suggested that I call back. Considering the fee was removed, I could call back at my leisure. Keeping the card open wouldn’t really harm me even though I preferred to downsize my active Chase credit card accounts. Continue reading Chase Only Allows $53 From Credit Line To Be Moved
