My chase freedom was converted to signature

Postby jeffysdad » Sat Apr 21, 2012 1:58 pm

You can barely read where it says "signature" on the front of the card. I tried out the concierge service by calling them and asking them to find me vegetarian restaurants in Chicago. They were very professional and e-mailed me a list of prospects within about 24 hours. However, I could have done the same thing myself on the web much more quickly.

I think the travel insurance, rental car cdw, etc., might be somewhat enhanced with the signature card, but I'm not sure. I haven't noticed any difference in customer service from Chase.

BTW, I'm very happy with Chase compared to Bankd of America and Citi. I'm surprised to say I would rank Cap One second to chase in customer service. I had always thought cap one was kind of low-rent.

It seems Visa Signature just relaunched a newly redesigned site if anyone is interested in learning more.

I have one with Chase... I've never used the concierge service... do you think I could call them every morning and ask for my weather? :ppp
I have used the fandango benefit though. gotten a couple BOGO free movie tickets, that was sweet.

every day with a ridiculous request, each one crazier than the last, and see how they do. Score them on the speed and accuracy with which they complete the task and then post the results on the web.

I see restaurants giving deals for Visa Signature card holders. The joint on the corner of me is giving free appetizer with dinner purchase one time deal for payment with Visa Signature cards. Do these deals be found at many other restaurants?

I get directions sometimes from them, they basically are someone with a connection to the Internets, so I use them as as a smart-phone rather than paying out $30/month for data (now that is smart).

I used the finding a restaurant feature extensively while I was traveling and it was great, (In St. Louis, they found a 5-star chef who opened his own family restaurant--so low prices, and in Southern California, they recommended this Mexican Restaurant Richard Nixon frequented, and it was pretty damn good--and not too expensive compared to the rest of California). However, they suck now because they used to have Zagat ratings (which I believe is why they found these places in the first place), but now they don't and so can now only give you just the same information a google maps search will do--lame.

And @samoanpride, I have never seen such a deal, that's awesome, how did you find that in the first place?

El Adobe in San Juan Capistrano. Upon a second look at the menu, it is actually kinda expensive for Mexican food. I still think it is reasonably priced because you get a decent amount and it definitely is some damn good Mexican. Oh, and the margarita glasses are huge.

Thanks Generallisimo, I'll check this place out next time I head down to San Diego. That's right off the 5 on the way down. I checked out their menu and it looks like the lunch prices are lower so I will try and go then.
