Replacement driver's license (just in time for travel tomorrow and a car rental).  Original was in a wallet that either slipped out of my pocket 10 days ago in Reno, or was plucked.  I've been loathe to cancel cards, hoping the wallet merely slipped out of my pocket and (hopefully) would be turned into security.  No luck on that count as of today.

 

There's been no activity on the cards.  I have to think if the wallet was thefted, or recovered by someone inclined to use the cards, they would attempt to do so immediately.  I need to replace the cards, but may ask that CVC's & exp date be modified without changing the card numbers.  Or maybe I'll take the safest path and request new numbers assigned.

I just received the same offer from FNBO today! :wave:

Congratulations! Good for you!  :wave:  :D  👍

 

Yes, this is a generous offer. I have used FNBO buck-back AmEx Card for 7 years. Until recently, First BankCard removed the AmEx payment network brand and replaced the AmEx Card with the more popular Visa payment network card. No one knows that these two payment networks were abandoned, or that both AmEx and Discover refused to renew the contract agreement with First BankCard.

 

Therefore, the 4.99% APR of the balance transfer life cycle is a new transaction that started a few months ago. FNBO often provides such balance transfers. I guess that these BT checks are generated to their customers on average every 2 months. However, in the past seven years, these quotations products have never fallen below the 5.99% APR. This 4.99% APR is my second offer.

 

I have provided many excellent quotations from my credit grantors. I thought of Discover and BofA. You are welcome to deposit 95% of the credit line directly into your checking account. Hehe, I am blessed and lucky to not have taken advantage of the generous offer yet.  :D

FNBO sends a similar offer out about every six weeks.  If they want my attention though, it needs to be an offer with nothing preceding the decimal point.  Almost 5% with 2% juice is not a juicy offer...

A message - I think my first ever message from NASA Federal - that I am "pre-approved to consolidate high-interest credit card balances to one amazing[ly crappy] balance transfer rate of 7.9%APR for life on balance transfers made within 90-days of account opening with the NASA Federal Platinum Advantage Rewards Credit Card."

 

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMeh.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(Unless NASA FCU does their own underwriting, in which case...  : /  )

I received two, count 'em, two (2) copies of my Equifax credit report. I had requested my report via snail mail using the annualcreditreport.com printed form. Each report had a different confirmation number, but otherwise they were identical. Obviously someone accidentally pushed a button twice.

Spouse received an invitation to apply for The Alaska Airlines Visa Signature Card, brought to you by Bank of America. A successful application would garner 60,000 bonus miles and there is a $75 annual fee.

 

That’s all fine and good, but there is a cardboard facsimile of the credit card pasted onto the top right corner, apparently to assist those who don’t know what a credit card is and may have never seen one. Very helpful.

 

The “cardholders” name printed on this thing is, wait for it… Anita Holiday! Get it? Like: I need a holiday.

 

That’s so funny! Almost as funny as when you apply for it and get declined! Probably for too many inquiries. Perhaps bankers should lay off the jokes.

Informed Delivery has shown me a letter from the stagecoach that literally has "Dear Resident" in the name space of the address in the window of the envelope.  Just CANNOT wait to get that one...

 

Seriously...

I got one of those at my non-main residence this week. Very desperate of them.

IRS is informing me that I may be owed an EIP payment.

 

I have no idea HOW unless something changed the standards by which they were doled out.

 

I'm surprised at some of the people I know that received them in the form of a Visa card and they were equally surprised and some annoyed.

      REMINDER!
      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,
      CDIA and Metro 2® Task Force
