Google Voice and More Citi Cards

Google Voice
I know this is old news for some, but just in case you haven't heard: Google started to let more people use Google Voice. Click here to request an invite. For some reason, it seems that some people receive their invite quickly, while others have to wait a while. If you need a Google Voice number urgently you can always get an invite on eBay for a few dollars.

You can use Google Voice together with Gizmo Project to create a free phone line anywhere in the world.

More Citi American Airlines Credit Cards
I applied for 5 new Citi cards. I figured they would only approve three of them, but I tried for all five anyways. I saw on FrugalTravelGuy that some people were approved for more than three cards. However, as I thought, they approved two personal cards and one business. The other two were declined because they only allow two applications for personal cards every 60 days, and one application for a business card every 90 days.
In any case, that should be another 90,000 AA miles!

I'm Back. Some Credit Card Updates

I'm back.
It's been a while, I know. I've been out of the country and quite busy, so if anyone is still reading, you should be seeing some more posts soon. Next time I'm away for this long, I'll try and let you know.

Charles Schwabb Visa

Original post
About a week before leaving the county I applied for the Charles Schwabb visa to use while in Europe. All other cards that I currently have, charge around 3% for foreign transactions.
At first my application was declined. I later found out that was because I had frozen my Experian report and forgot to unfreeze it. I unfroze the report, then called Charles Schwabb to reapply. Once I was approved (for $15,000), I asked them if they can send it to me quickly. The very next afternoon I had the card in my hands! Quick Service!

I used it quite a bit in the UK, and the exchange rates are very good, and no additional fees are added on, and besides for that I get 2% unlimited cash back!
So far I'm very happy with the card, and any purchase that doesn't 'require' an Amex, I use the Charles Schwabb.

Citi $50 Credit
Original post
Just an update that the $50 credit posted to the card I asked them to, even though it wasn't the card that I was offered the $50 credit on.
