Confirmation email from Citi on my closing of the AA Platinum.

Gonna pick up an Aviator now?

 

That's probably my next Stupid Human Trick.  That said, Barclays is getting touchier and touchier about my total available credit.

Also, getting under 5/24 seems impossible these days, le sigh.

👆On a related note, looks like we've charged $18k on this card since the last statement closed.

 

I'm going to put in a CLI request next month.  I 100% guarantee it will be denied for not enough usage.

PenFed wants me to buy a new car @0.99% for 60 months. Unfortunately, the few vehicles I might be interested in aren't in stock and the new/used auto values are over-inflated now and no one is giving out deals.

I think that requires using their auto buying service, which I tried to use a couple of years ago.

 

I ended up with a selling price $15,000-20,000 lower by not taking the atrocious deals that were offered.

Yup!

I found out years ago that True Car and these services are little more than a referral service for dealers who have customers who may well be intimidated by auto sales people and the car buying process.

Got notice that, after a few weeks of no apparent interest by others in a vehicle I had found, they are willing to accept my (very) low-ball offer.  And I mean low as in what they MIGHT have gotten at auction...

 

I'll know in a few hours if they are serious...although weather sucks locally right now.

Good luck!

I go pick it up tomorrow...when the weather changed on me yesterday, I didn't pull the autodraft out of the car I WAS going to drive.  So I have a deposit down and most of the paperwork is a formality.  Hagerty is quoting me less than $200 for the full coverage through the end of the year (I am adding it as a collector vehicle with limited miles per year).  Confirmed that dealership had been set to send it to auction this week...

More emails from Sync telling me my statements are going paperless. I will log in and change them back to paper.


Cox (our ISP in CA) sent me an email informing me that I'm being converted to paperless statements.

 

I can (and will) switch back to paper after the first paperless statement, which is the first opportunity.

 

I wouldn't feel so strongly about this, but a few years ago they charged me $25 when an automatic payment was declined, because the card I had on file had to be replaced and I forgot to update my account with the new card number.

 

At that point I decided that they can pay to mail me a statement every month until I die, or otherwise no longer need their service

      So- my credit file has not significantly changed in a long time (and I qualified for long-term zero% auto loan back in April).
       
      I do carry significant balances on my credit cards, but always pay (auto-pay) significantly more than minimum payments. 
       
      but something triggered an odd cascade in the last few weeks. 
       
      I got notice one of my Synchrony accounts had suddenly had the credit limit dramatically reduced. I contacted them and they said they periodically check credit report and make changes. The letter they sent indicated high balances to limit on cards. 
       
      a day later ai get another letter from Synchrony- for a second account with them was having the limit reduced...
       
      we all know this impacts your credit score, as it messes up your utilization %.
       
      today, I got notice from a different bank- that, due to higher credit utilization rates, they dramatically reduced my limit in that card - 
       
      Which of course now even further rips my credit score...
      And this afternoon, I get notice from Synchrony that my Automotive account (that has never had particularly high balance can limit) was having a limit reduction down to the current balance!
       
      What’s going on?  I have NEVER been late, never payed just the minimum payments on any accounts... 
       
      Is there some massive banking “surprise” on the horizon?
       
      I did recently put a credit freeze on all 3 bureaus due to someone filing for unemployment with my name/SS# and I filed a police report on that. 
       
      I have paid credit monitoring service- and there is nothing new or odd on my CR...
       
      So what’s going on?

      There is no paywall.   I did not know this, but found it interesting.
