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.
