I have used Chase cards in the area before, so Chase fraud algorithms may recognize CA as a likely travel area, anyway.
Very useful: SchwabPlat, CSP, IHG, Costco (was AA Plat), Freedom, SPG
Somewhat useful: Discover, ED (was EDP), BCE, Hyatt, Arrival
May close or PC: Prestige, BrooksBros

Might add: Proper business card, CSR, Ritz, Delta Gold, First Tech

I had a little hiccup with my CSP tonight. I tried to use it for a $10 charge at a community theater, but the charge was stuck in the "authorizing" state for about 30-45 seconds before people in line behind me (and the merchant's employee) got impatient and I just paid with cash. I had seen a few other people have difficulty using their cards, though it was a little frustrating for me that the woman ahead of me in line had no trouble at all with her Cap1 Platinum.

I called Chase later and apparently the transaction never reached Chase. The $50 charge for dinner a few miles away an hour before had gone through without a hitch, so I believe Chase. The theater charge doesn't appear on the website at all. So I guess it's not Chase's fault.

And I had such a nice anti-Chase-fraud-algorithm rant in mind. :(

I'm pretty confident that would be the terminal itself and or the Internet connection or phone connection as the venue being terrible... Any delay like that (unless a massive transaction - and even still) is usually not card or approval related, but equipment...
Amex - BCP, Platinum, Business Gold
BoA - BankAmericard Cash Rewards
Chase - Freedom, CSP, RC, Ink Plus
Citi - DC, Prestige
Discover - It
