  1. I have a fairly ample number of points on my Chase Quicken Visa (I crossed out Quicken because Chase has discontinued their relationship with them). Now that I'm thinking about it, it's actually the blue Chase "Freedom" Visa, which was substituted for the silver Chase "Quicken" Visa sometime earlier this year. Anyway, up until about a year ago, you could get a discount for air travel, e.g., you could redeem 25,000 points for $400 of travel (as opposed to getting $250 in cash). However, Chase unceremoniously changed the redemption rules, and now 25,000 points only gets you $250 of tra
  2. So I was perusing my Capital One credit card charges last night and I see a $3,600 charge from Progressive Insurance. Hmm....(I) I don't insure anything with Progressive and (ii) nothing I own costs that much to insure. So I call Capital One, and Capital One conferences in Progressive. They all agree it's a fraudulent charge. I ask Progressive on whose behalf did I pay the insurance for and they wouldn't tell me, citing privacy concerns. I'm a little shocked that Progressive would accept payment on someone else's credit card for such a large amount. Capital One is usually pretty good at
  3. Hey, so, my Chase Freedom Visa has a refer-a-friend feature, where both the referrER and the referrEE get rewards. I figure if you're going to join anyway (*), I may as well leech off you, and you can get $150 cash back (see item 2) - so just send me a PM with your first name and the email address you want to use, and we'll both reap the grim benefits. Yeah, this is pretty cheesy, but what the heck. Note: This is for the Chase *Freedom* Visa, which is their no-annual-fee, lowest-level card - I've used them for years, and Chase's online system is terrific - much improved in the last few mo
  4. Today was a first for me - I had lunch at a restaurant (big surprise there), and gave my credit card when presented with the bill. My server asked me if I wanted to write down the tip on the *initial* bill, saying that it increases security with the new micro-chip credit cards. Fine with me - I left a 20% tip before tax, and handed her both the bill and the credit card, which she took back to the register. She then returned with the tip printed out, and I simply signed my name and left. In all my years of dining, this has *never* happened to me before. Is this going to be some k
  5. Have other people found this to be true? I used to be a loyal AmEx member 20 years ago, and after being told they didn't accept it at a Michelin 3-star restaurant in Paris (Lucas Carton, if anyone is curious), I left and haven't looked back. I got a rather flattering solicitation in the mail the other day, and saved it, but I'm not sure why. Airport lounges may become more-and-more important to me in the future, and that's one perk of AmEx cards - are they worth it, or not? Right now, I'm perfectly happy with the way I currently exist, but I may ramp up my level of existence at some point
  6. A restaurant's friend, a diner's friend? A restaurant's friend, a diner's foe? A restaurant's foe, a diner's friend? A restaurant's foe, a diner's foe? That about covers it. Swipely
