I think the pin for these isn’t the last four digits like MetaBank. Do you have the inside packaging still? It should say in there or you can reset the pin by calling the number on the back or set it online
That must be my problem. I have the packaging at work but I’ll try to go online tonight and change it. I just assumed it was the last four since that’s what my other ones were. Thanks!

    My grocery stores only have MasterCard and MetaBank visas. It’s a lot of trial and error but I’m sure you will learn how stuff works in your area. I hope you don’t get discouraged. When I tried to get my first money order I must have tried 8 stores before finding one that worked lol

    Thanks! I just called and did that. I’ll try it again tomorrow.

    Thanks! It’s not a big deal. I figured I must’ve either bought the wrong card or something so that’s why I asked here haha.

    Now this is how pizza is supposed to be! Highly recommend Anna’s Brick Oven Pizza and Pasta in Williamsburg, VA. It’s probably 10 min away from GWL. DS got the limoncello mousse cake and it is amazing! He scarfed it down before I could even get a pic.View attachment 419228
    Good to know! DH and I meet my ILs in Williamsburg sometimes for dinner, so this would be a good option. We always go to Food for Thought, which has been good

    I'm guessing since the MC I got at Fred Meyer/Kroger today is the same bank that that US Bank National blah blah is what they use for all their visa and mc.

    I was able to get seat assignments today for our Air Canada flights home from Europe next June. Thought I’d mention it in case it might help somebody else. We’re flying economy using United miles that I booked through DH’s United account and coming home we’ll be on AC from Venice to Toronto. In the original booking I was able to get seats assigned going over (United) but not coming back (AC).

    When I entered our booking reference on the AC site, it said I had to call them for seat assignments. To be honest, I wasn’t even sure I’d be able to get seats assigned until we checked in for our flight. I was getting conflicting info in online searches I did. So I was a bit stressed that we might end up getting really bad seats on a transatlantic flight. Recipe for a miserable 6-7 hours! I called and was told there would be a long wait on hold. I tried calling a second time when it should have been a less busy time but still had a long wait. Hung up.

    But I did a search on flyertalk and found someone had mentioned being able to get seats assigned by messaging them via Facebook Messenger so I tried that and it worked! I heard back almost 24 hours later and they were able to assign us seats using the detailed info I sent them about what we wanted. Already got an email with the updated itinerary, so I’m stoked! Almost makes up for the Aspire pop up and the Cap1 hassle.

    Also, I haven’t heard the greatest reviews on Air Canada for Transatlantic flights. If anyone has experience let me know. Hopefully our experience will be good. It’s a 763 from their “Rouge” collection.

    Those USB VGCs are what I pick up at the grocery (Kroger) store too. You need to open the packaging all the way (tear off the perforated edge and open it all the way up), and there is a piece of paper with a 4 digit PIN inside. I usually scribble that PIN on my hand before I go into WM so that I don't have to memorize it.

    I used to set the PINs by calling in, but kept getting the vgc blocked at WM due to fraud alerts. After the 3rd or 4th time of this happening, I stopped changing the PIN (because they told me that was a red flag), and just use the PIN that's inside the packaging. No problems for me since doing that.

    I think @calypso726 gave you her experience. I just upgraded my card in May, prorated AF just posted and I haven’t paid it yet. (ETA I haven’t received my free night yet)
    Here’s the official T&C

    Hilton Honors Annual Free Weekend Night Reward
    During each year of your Card Membership, you will receive one Annual Free Weekend Night Reward from Hilton Honors. The Annual Free Weekend Night Reward will be issued in the form of a redeemable code and sent in an email from Hilton Honors to the email address listed on your Hilton Honors account. You will receive the reward email within 8-14 weeks after opening your Card Account and each year within 8-14 weeks after your Card Account anniversary date. This benefit is only available to the Basic Card Member on the Card Account. The Annual Free Weekend Night Reward can be redeemed for one weekend night standard accommodation, double occupancy, subject to availability at properties in the Hilton portfolio, excluding those listed at HiltonHonors.com/weekendreward. A weekend night is defined as Friday, Saturday or Sunday night. To redeem the Annual Free Weekend Night Reward, Card Members must call 1-800-446-6677 and mention the code provided by Hilton Honors.

    I think I’m replying to the right people. I went back and double checked, my Hilton Free Weekend Night email and then certificate arrived right after we met the spend requirement (MSR - if that’s the right acronym) on our Amex Aspire/ now Surpass. It came when my statement ended- I don’t know if it was a coincidence that I hit $15,000 at the same time my statement came out or if that’s when it’s issued. But I wanted to let you know that it didn’t take weeks for it to come.

    Thanks @Lain! I went down the list since the first 3 I hit voicemail (6:45 pm EST) and finally had success on the 4th number and he was able to hook me up! I felt bad since he had to read and read and read...he sent it to underwriting and 5 min later I am the proud new owner of a Biz Plat! I’ll use it to make the next two installments of DS’s tuition since that will give me the 1.5 return. DH’s Hilton Biz was originally for the Aug payment but I’ll use it instead for DS’s uniforms, laptop, upcoming homeowner’s, etc...$3k won’t be hard to spend, unfortunately.

    Do the mailers show a fixed interest rate ? From what I have seen on reddit ...if they do it’s a way around 5/24...
    As far as your CLs...what % is the total to household income....Chase usually likes under 50%....
    I'm not seeing a fix rate but there is an invitation number and offer code.

    Do they want my Chase limit to be under 50% or my total limit out there to be under 50%?

    I hope I don't get shunned for this, but I didn't like the Lion King movie at all. Dh and I both looked at each other multiple times throughout because we were so bored. I actually almost fell asleep which doesn't normally happen for me at movies. I'll admit that I'm not a huge fan of the cartoon Lion King anyway so maybe that plays a part in it. I guess I just thought the movie was extremely slow paced and the whole voice over on the animals just didn't work for me. However, Timon and Pumba redeemed the movie somewhat because they were fantastic, but besides them I was not a fan of this one. Let the shunning begin... Also, why is it so hard for people to find their reserved seats? At our theater you have to pick your seats so no one should come in wandering around. There were many people confused and moving seats which makes no sense to me. Our theater had lots of kids, but they were all very well behaved. There was one little boy that was singing which was pretty funny and it didn't last long. I did see his mom get up with him multiple times to walk down the stairs and around at the bottom a bit. He looked like he was maybe 3 or so.

    This is completely unrelated, but does anyone know where you can get cheap, lounge chairs? I'm talking the trifold ones that are super cheap. I've looked everywhere and can't find any under $40. My mom said she got hers at Dollar General but it was a couple years back. This is what I want:
