Well what's even more ironic is, on the charge card, maybe a month to 6 weeks ago, I put in 10k in the Will my charge be accepted box and it took it, and that's with a balance that was already on the card I hadn't paid, so for sure they would approve a charge for over 10k on the Gold. If I'm going to burn them, they know from past experience it can be done just as easily on a charge as a revolver. The only thing that makes any sense is they simply must not feel comfortable with the idea of me carrying a balance with them, as in a big balance. Understandable as they aren't nuts about the concept anyway as we know.
I really like the Gold and if nothing else I'd for sure leave that open for the long term. Honestly the only reason I see leaving the revolvers open is because I can PC them so they don't cost me anything to benefit from backdating. It's not like they have any future especially a 2k travel card. BCP not really a big deal but the limit on a travel card for me makes it a step above useless.
Nothing at all against them either, just how it is. Like I said you just have to acknowledge the reality on the ground, and build things with lenders who you can grow with. They didn't have to remove me from the blacklist, but let's be honest, they didn't do it because they found Buddha in their closet, they did it as a business move to make money. They'll still make money, but I really do have to shift my eggs to some other baskets so to speak, some of them anyway.
