I use my Chase Ink for utilities and for AdWords. 5x for the former and 3x for the latter make it the best card to use for such purchases. Having said that, I do not like using my Chase Ink for every day spends. “Why?” you must ask. Because it is the only card I have where transactions go from visibly pending to disappearing before reappearing as posted activity. This is frustrating for two reasons: 1) The overall outstanding balance of the card goes up before the activity is posted. I use a budget app on my phone that is never in sync with Chase.com because of this discrepancy. 2) When promotions like Iberia’s come around and I am waiting to see if they went through, I have no way of knowing. I checked yesterday and did not see Iberia in the pending column. I checked today and it showed that Iberia had posted.
I do not understand why this is the only card that does this. None of the other Chase products do, and none of the other banks’ credit cards do either.
This really grinds my gears. How about you?
