Last week I asked why pending transactions only disappear from Ink? That question has baffled me for years, much like how do we know if anyone will ever pick up when we are on hold? This week my question is, why do Chase Ink Points Take Longer to Post? My statement closed on the 28th, a date that I purposefully set for all my cards so I don’t forget to pay my bills, but none of my points have posted (see Your March Statement is Due: Tips for Paying On Time). This is not a new phenomena, it has been happening forever. It was annoying years ago when I had the Chase Ink Bold (remember that boy), and it is annoying now.
These two quirks of the card discourage me from using it. In fact, I’m so fed up with the transaction issue that I am willing to pay an extra $20 for the overhyped Chase Hyatt card, just so I have an everyday Visa to use. I was using my Amex Blue Business Plus card, one of the best cards for everyday spend, but Amex is not widely accepted in Puerto Rico.
And next I’m going to talk about how I bypassed 5/24 to get the Ink Business Preferred, and how I still have only received 50k out of the 100k sign up bonus!
Why do you make me hate you Ink? Why?
