Try manually editing the username in OnePass to the correct one. Also try clicking on the username field or pressing tab on the front page before pressing sign on. It will show the correct username, and seems to work better than just hitting sign on.

You can also turn on quick view on your phone, which will show your recent transactions and balance so you don't need to sign in to see your balance or if you have a payment due.

This is not a problem during sign-on, just during initial registration.

After doing a little research and clicking on "Apply" I will be receiving my new Chase Sapphire Preferred card on Tuesday and discontinue using my Citibank Costco card. The move makes sense for me on account I travel 3 times a month and rent a car, the rental insurance is a big bonus and more simply put a piece of mind. The one edge the Citibank Costco card has is on points for gas, but I have a company car that comes with its own fuel card...so that doesn't do anything for me. ;-)

I've already used up a big chunk of Q2 Freedom's cap with some Costco steaks and wine.

* It is a bit strange to not have an Amex in the top layer of my wallet.
Warranties and sketchy merchants: Schwab Platinum
Price rewind: Costco
Travel insurance: Prestige, CSP
Perks: IHG, Hyatt
Rewards/Offers: Discover, Freedom, ED, BCE
Taxes/Misc: SPG

Limited value, might close: Arrival

Might add: First Tech, proper business card, Delta Gold, Aviator Red, BofA Travel

It's about 1.25 to 1.5 inches thick, but in pretty good condition. Some Seinfeld fan relatives used to make Costanza jokes. Depending on the section, 3 to 6 cards. Top layer is:

Driver ID, Prestige, Freedom, Sallie, Discover, and gym ID.

I'm trying to keep it in good shape. It's a discontinued Coach wallet and I like the design.

I have the opposite wallet situation. It only has 6 card slots (I put drivers license and insurance in one since they're both thin), no inside pockets, no nothing except one cash pocket. Very smal and thin.

I could not handle a huge wallet.

Do you have any receipts in there?

Any hard candies?

I do temporarily (for a day or two) store receipts there for purchases that might involve a claim for Price Rewind and/or an extended warranty. No hard candies.

I see Coach has switched from using an Amex Green in their model photos to an Amex Gold.
