Once in a Spa I was getting a massage and the staff was being kind of cold with me but I soon as I pulled out my card to pay I noticed how their attitude changed and they started offering all kinds of overpriced anti-aging packages (I just turned 25!!) . also last friday I had this doctor's appointment and I had to wait forever because they couldn't verify my insurance, so when I finally hand her the card for the co-payment she says "You don't have to worry about it, you can afford it" ... I just told myself, maybe, but I rather pay a $15 copayment than a $1000 medical bill!! That's what insurance is for!


Ur 25 and love credit! Im in love. Hahaha jk. That is cool. My girl doesn't care for credit too much or the benefits!

I was just throwing out ONE of my strategies that affords me certain privileges. 90% confidence & charm, 10% because of the kind of card it is. Oh, and if you are a Hard Rock member that also helps.


Sadly there are hard rock cafès in Utah. But hey next time I'm waiting in line for something I will have to ask!! Basically just act, look walk and talk like a boss while flashing my amex. Sounds... Easy ;) Haha!

I'm ROFL with you!!

I made him get the Sapphire Preferred because I don't think I'll be approved, not until my several inquiries go away, so I can transfer him my points and put them on my United account
