Mail forwarding companies question

Postby improvent363 » Tue Aug 16, 2011 7:46 pm

1. if you sign up for one of these mail forwarding companies does it matter to credit card companies that you are using not your real home address to recieve statement (even though I have choosen paperless statement) or credit cards?

2. Will know it is not your real home address but a mailbox service address?

You can sign up for the service if you want with no significant issue. A good friend of mine in the military uses a P.O box for her address. However keep in mind that banks have the ability and will perform address verification before opening an account and can distinguish between a real or virtual address. I will suggest you contact the bank and advise them that you will be using mail forwarding service as a courtesy.
Hope this helps.

After you have your account open I don't think it will be a problem, but when you apply you will certainly want to go with the same address that's on your credit file. Otherwise it will be a red flag for fraud and delay the processing.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.

Current Cards:
American Express: Blue Cash, Simply Cash Bank of America: WorldPoints Platinum Plus Chase: Amazon, British Airways, Cash Plus Rewards, Freedom, Ink Cash Citi: Thank You Premier, Dividend Platinum Select Discover: More
Primary Everyday Card: American Express Blue Cash
Primary Travel Card: Chase Sapphire Preferred
