I knew about the online user ID thing - a couple of years ago when I got a second Discover they told me they were "working on it" and hoped to have it fixed so that you wouldn't have to do that "soon". I know, soon is relative, and in this case it probably means "maybe in our lifetime".
The separate rewards pool is kind of surprising. I guess they expect you to have one of the cards or the other. Again kind of a PITA.
Um, her letting corp know probably consists of forgetting about it as soon as she gets off the phone with you. If they are like most corprs I've been around, they couldn't care less what the help says let alone the customers, just keep those big bonuses coming our way baby. So if she's at all experienced she knows better than to waste her time piping up to them. Just nod your head and agree they are more brilliant than Einstein when they really remind you of Larry Curly and Moe and stay the hell away from them is the best thing you can do but that's another story.
Can the world handle another one of us? Better yet can the CCCs handle two of us? Look at it this way - you just saved yourself the wondering if they will ever increase your limit. Actually the answer is the same as before - now they won't, and they wouldn't have even had you left the cards open so it's pretty much the same I guess.
For what it's worth, since another user showed me how they nerfed the rewards on the Associated card, I'm questioning if I really want that one long term, despite the limit. 1.25% on everything is honestly a small step above 1% on everything. Even Cap One gives better (QS). I guess it beats nothing, but I've now moved my position that if I do slim down to 3 cards at some point, I'll be keeping Freedom (and I'm moving my non-Amex spend to Freedom as well). I'm tired of US Bank nerfing rewards I know they are free to do it, but I'm also free to put my spend on other cards too. Chase at least gives 5% rotating categories to keep it interesting.
