    • Hello all!!
       
      I will try to make this as short and sweet as possible. I used to make much more money than what I am currently making. Never paid late on my cards until recently and I’m still never more than a few days late. My cards are all maxed out and it’s costing so much to keep up with everything. I thought about going on the hardship program with my cards but I think that might have a negative affect on my credit. My utilization is at 99%.  I just don’t even know where to start. I would love to just work on getting the balances down because I feel like the hard work will stop me from charging the cards up again. I have 9 cards. And I have no lates reported as I’m never more than a few days late.

    • With an upcoming refresh of the American Express Green card there are several rumors swirling about potential improvements. Right now the Green offers 2x points on purchases through the amextravel portal and 1x on everything else for a $95 AF. Yawn. 

      The current rumors are suggesting a June/July/August launch bringing with it 4x on "gas" and 3x on "streaming services" with a wild card of free Amazon Prime with membership. Not awful at all if true. I'd be curious to see the caveats that will certainly come with the gas category, and the streaming services seem a little petty since I'm sure even the most die hard cord cutter only spends around 50-75 a month in service fees. As with all the other charge card refreshes I expect to see a bump in the AF to around $149 which leaves this a little underwhelming to me. If it's meant to be an intro to AmEx charge cards then it would seem to entice the everyday folks you need to include everyday expenses for instance, cellular service. Maybe free phone insurance for any service paid with the card, similar to the propel from WF. Just throwing daydreams out here. 
       
      Anything you would want to see with a potential refresh?

    • Hi all,
       
      Wondering if anyone has personal experience with having a civil judgment made against them that then lapsed / expired. A family member is wishing to transfer property to me, but I am concerned due to a couple of judgments from the most recent recession. I know it's not the wisest route, but due to my circumstances at the time and several years following, I essentially did nothing (didn't respond to letters, people trying to serve me, etc., definitely didn't make any payments). I didn't realize until recently that judgments could be revived. At this point, I don't want to declare bankruptcy when it's almost been 10 years... I should have just declared BK at the time of the judgments but obviously wasn't educated.
       
      Any help / thoughts appreciated!

      What happens to credit utilization rate if I have 1000$ credit limit and I finance a 1000$ purchase for 10 months? Is it gonna be %100-%90-%80 or %10-%10-%10?

    • My son in college, playing baseball was injured and sent for an MRI. They used my insurance information. I never received a bill. I was expecting the school to cover the bill since the baseball coach and AD sent him for the MRI. Anyway, we recently pulled his credit file and its showing as a collection on his reports. I disputed as "not mine" but it came back as confirmed.
       
      How do I proceed????  contact the school 1st? Why Chat do I just follow your procedure?

    • Is there some sort of global internet/network slowdown, or are both my phone and my tablet fkd up?   Turkish Airlines lounge at Dulles before dawn - slow but usable.   Flight from IAD-LAX (Viasat) - sporadically unusable the entire five hours, and it didn't work at all on the ground before departure.   Couldn't even connect to the free WiFi at LAX at all.  Also couldn't sent text messages through the Verizon network from a restaurant where I had breakfast/lunch.     Took a call while in the terminal so I could be an enthusiastic reference for a stellar former employee -- and the other party kept asking me to repeat myself because the signal was so bad.  She was calling from Ontario, so I'm willing to 🎶 blame Canada 🎶 for that one.   Admirals Clubs in Terminal 4 and the Regional Terminal at LAX were slow but steady.   Sporadically no connection at all on the flight from LAX-SAN (Gogo).   Now I'm home and sometimes for a minute or two at a time I can't get anything to load.  Even tried the 5G option on our home router with the same results.   I've restarted both devices multiple times, "forgot" and reconnected to the various networks, etc., to no avail.      
    • Wow.  I wonder if more detail is to follow after he gets there.
    • Yes, the rate is over 20% and I am in the 800’s so it’s def a gouge feature. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • I recommend a trailer for this guy as well.
    • Cannot speak to Gold, but the Plat has had a pay over time feature on travel-related expenses for a long time.  The APR is not good and I doubt their algorithms look kindly upon those who revolve a balance...but it is all about them trying to get some interest $$$ from the salamanders...
