My bank will only dispute the last 60 days. That leaves an additional 1300+ unaccounted for. My questions are: (1) are banks typically...

    Looking to get an air miles credit card. Been doing a lot more traveling than I used to. Usually fly domestic Delta or AA ( I like Jet Blue the best but they are more limited in the areas they service). Are these air miles cards with extra annual fee worth the money. Delta seems like they...

    I have had a couple of accounts for many years at TFCU. I usually just park some money there in savings and money markets for their better than average rates. From day one, they have been one of the most inconvenient banks to do business with. Besides the lack of locations, their e-commerce...

The Chase does squat for me and is my highest...

    Keep an eye on your statements! During my rash of ammo purchases Chase Ink informed me that my card had been compromised and that someone tried to make reservations to South Africa. What a surprise. Luckily they caught it in a timely fashion. The charge was declined.
