BT checks from Citi (now with the fee dropped from 5% back down to 3%)   Automobile title from payoff of our last auto loan.

Got some medicine for my cancer. It came overnight. Yeah.

Oddly, that is my recipe for pickles.

BT checks from Disco. SMH Dumbflowers.

 

Again, BT checks from Disco. Seriously? You chop my CL by more than half, then send me BT checks 17 days apart???

 

Also got a generous offer for a $35k loan from Proper, and a life insurance ad from AAA.

 

All shredder fodder...which reminds me, it's time to empty the shredder bin.

Don't forget to run a lubricant sheet through the shredder every time you empty the bin. We were going through shredders like crazy until we instituted this simple, inexpensive maintenance task.

Well, it wasn't by snail mail but I did get a nice email from Ebates this morning letting me know I earned $196.40 cash back on my recent Hilton trip. I had forgotten that when I booked the room last March, Ebates had it at 10% that day. Nice surprise.

US Skank Cash+ arrived today. It's a signature card at that. Not sure why they would make it that way since the limit is only $1k.

 

I hopefully cycling thru the limit with PIF will eventually trigger an increase.

Mine is at $2,000 after $500 CLI a few months ago. Good luck! Edited by credit_help

What's Redplum? What/how many ETFs will that $9.44 buy? What ETFs do you have? Any with Crypto Currency stocks in them? :-)

 

I get BT checks from Cap 1, BOA, and Discover every two or three weeks.

      Account Status 05 (Account transferred)
      to become obsolete for reporting
      Effective April 2022
       
      As noted within Exhibit 4 (Account Status Codes) in the Credit Reporting Resource Guide (CRRG®) since 2020, Account Status 05 (Account Transferred) will become obsolete for reporting in April 2022.
       
      Refer to the Transferred category within Exhibit 6 for a list of Special Comment Codes that should be used instead of Account Status 05. Refer to Frequently Asked Question & Answer 46 for guidance on reporting transferred accounts, and to Frequently Asked Question & Answer 47 for guidance on reporting sold accounts.
       
      All guidance that relates to accounts being transferred or sold has previously been updated to advise that the Account Status should be reported as of the time of transfer or sale so no further updates will be made to existing CRRG® FAQs (46 & 47) as a result Account Status 05 being retired.
       
      The Metro 2® Task Force recommends that data furnishers transition away from reporting Account Status 05 as soon as possible.
       
      If there are any questions, please e-mail metro2info@cdiaonline.org.
       
      Thank you,

      ·     Use of Special Comment Codes to identify the “transferred’ condition
      ·     FAQ #46

      Any explanation would be great. I thought to list a series of events would be better than some long paragraph. I have pics and proof for all events below. 
       
      Mid May: Ordered Vehicle (checked credit score showing 730 at the time)

      June 7: Toyota Financial Services received payment for old lease

      June 12: TFS closed account
       
      June 30: TFS reported to the credit bureau account closed on June 12

      Friday July 9: Credit was pulled by dealer (first of knowing of outstanding balance on a said closed account)Was able to get bumped to a Tier 2. (Nothing was reported nor sent to me that I had an outstanding balance)
       
      Monday July 12: called Transunion because their score was what was pulled that hurt the deal. Transunion said that they show nothing of delinquency on my report AND show no history of it being removed nor it ever being on there in the first place.
       
      Evening July 12: called Experian because no other apps were showing a tier 3 credit score. They also said they had no history of it ever being on my report. (Talked to about five differnent people) They put me on a callback list to speak to a supervisor. Associate had said supervisor was in a meeting and would call back.
       
      July 13: Called Experian again to figure what happened. Received notifications that my credit score had increased 66 points and delinquency was removed notifications on Experian app. (No certainty that it was removed from report because they said there’s nothing bad on my report. I guess I take their word for it??)
       
      Evening July 13: received a notifications from credit apps that Toyota Motor Credit has reported positive activity on a outstanding loan balance. Loan paid.
       
      July 14: Called TFS to request document to cross reference dates.
       
      July 16: Called TFS to speak to Toyota Motor Credit. Turns out there’s no one to speak to in that department. It’s the same as calling TFS. Called Experian again to ask why they are just now reflecting on my credit that I had an outstanding balance that was just closed on July 13 not what TFS sent which states that it was closed in June 12. Experian had told me that the account was closed in June but when I explained to them that’s not what I’m seeing in my emails and notifications, they became combative and hung up on me. No one can tell me how and why on July 9, a inaccurate mistake cost me money and no one can send me my credit report to verify that there’s no delinquency. TFS agree that someone dropped the ball (but not them) and is willing to send any and all reports they have on my accounts. All credit bureaus has yet to send me to any documentation of removal of alleged delinquency and I will never know what happen on July 9th that cost me money. I’m paying more than I should and I could’ve been out of $1k(nonrefundable deposit to order vehicle) because I will not sign a tier 3 deal. Who knows how long I would’ve been without a car in this market if that were true.

      Hello,
       
      Does anyone know either by experience or with a good degree of certainty if American Express (AMEX) will decline card membership if you have ever filed bankruptcy against them? I have read somewhere that they keep a permanent “barred from membership list”.
       
      Is this right, no. However, as you probably know a financial institution may choose to do business with whomever they choose (a rather broad definition). I have read that even if an American Express account has been fully-discharged by a successfully complete bankruptcy case, they will no longer choose to do business with you.
       
      The reason I am asking is twenty years ago, I listed them as a creditor in my Chapter 7 bankruptcy case. I would like to apply for membership in the future when my current FICO is a bit stronger. However, I do not want to burn a hard-inquiry only for it to be declined.
       
      I apologize if I am not posting in the correct area. Thank you.
