Sorry if this question was asked before but I looked on the marketing website for the company just to see what the process was like on the buying side.  I see their lowest package is for tradelines with $5k-$10k limits.  Do they already have an abundance of these cards which is why they are only accepting cards over the $10k limit?  Just surprised me to see the ability to buy tradelines with less than a $10k limit when all I've seen is they only accept cards with a limit over $10k.
Yes, they used to accept cards between 5-10k, and other issuers. Then they narrowed to more selective cards that get more sales and are more reliable (10k+, certain CC companies).

The word from the tradeline company is that Discover is stepping up their game and we can expect to have to give document verification more frequently. I'm not sure we will know the driver for my flagged inquiry this time, or if it was truly random, but the tradeline company assured me they double check for fraud, verify with social security administration that these are real people, etc. Further, based on my own conclusions, for parties that may be interested, there was no discussion/explanation in our correspondence regarding checking for criminal activity by people we are adding to our tradelines, so we need to go into that with our eyes wide open.

With this specific order, I said I was not comfortable, and they were very amiable and attentive to my concerns on this order, and we appear to be set for the next one. It just is a bummer that my first two ended up with not being able to be added.

My two Discover adds also required additional documents to be uploaded.

One guy just a social security card.  The other SS card, ID, and proof of address.  Seems like more hassle but i'll play along as long.

Interesting, thanks for the data!  I'm curious to see if my next discover adds have the same thing (if it's system-wide, or just your guys' accounts flagged for some reason, or what).  Will be interesting to see if Discover keeps this up, and/or they stop using Discover--I hope not.  :)

Yeah I figured it out. One of my AU's must not have reported correctly

Yup, this is likely the case.  If it didn't report correctly, they'll upload the credit report to show you as proof.

--------------------------------------------------------

As many of you noted, end of the month = payday for the previous month (yay)!  (E.g. End of Sept = payment for August posts.)

Everyone should now have pay stubs for any August sales, and the money should hit your account within 3 business days or so, so probably Tuesday.

You should also, within a few days, get an email with a detailed breakdown of orders posting/not that will explain the amount of the paycheck (you probably don't care, if the payment matches what you were anticipating, but it may not for one reason or another, like with boarder so that detailed breakdown will help you figure out what's wrong--easiest to wait for that, and then you can email with questions).

I'm curious the cumulative amount Mustachians will have made from selling tradelines in August.  I'm guessing at least 5 figures combined.  The idea of all of that going towards debt paydown or FIRE (or reducing sequence of returns risk for those FIRE'd) makes me pretty happy.  :)

Do you receive paystubs on a site separate from the tradeline site (with the word paycheck in the URL)? Anyone else having issues logging in? It keeps loading and loading and never ... loads.  I've tried chrome and safari.

I must know
how much I can spend on boy toys and blow.

@Malaysia41, I was getting security problem flags trying to log into that site last week (in different browsers), but that is fixed this week.

I received an email from that co. today saying a new pay stub was ready, and I was able to log into their site no problem...

M41: That is the site to use (saw before edit, can confirm it's the right one), I use Chrome.  I can't 100% recall, cause it was almost 4 months ago, but I think I had an issue with the site at first, but has been fine ever since. 

Do you use OS X or Windows?

Also your Dr. Seuss-eque rhyme at the end made me laugh.

I received the follow g on 9/14/16 from the company ARS uses. Anyone else having the same issues?

Here's the email content:

Thanks for your interest in our program. Unfortunately, at this time we are no longer accepting new cards into the program. We will open up our program to new investors starting in January 2017 for the beginning of the tax season, our highest sale season. I've attached our FAQ sheet and should you have any cards that qualify that you'd like to add to the program, please email me starting January 2017 and I'd be happy to get you set up in the program. Let me know if you have any questions.

 

Thanks

Yup, they stopped taking new accounts a few weeks ago--we discussed it here in the thread, and I updated the top of the first post to reflect this.  Sorry you weren't able to get in in time!  Like it says, check back in about two months.  :)

Maybe people use tax refunds as down payments on financed purchases like new cars?

Heh, it's like a crosspost to Mustachian People Problems. No idea what the general public would do.

What do people spend tax refunds on?
Um, front loading the 401k?
529?
Roth Conversion?
What do you mean refunds? That's giving the feds a free loan!

Etc.

I know someone who buys used firearms when he can find them
throughout the year -- if he can acquire them in good condition at a
discount -- often just before Christmas.  He then sells them during
tax refund season when everyone's feeling flush.

You probably know this, but make sure it's past the deadline on the tradeline site--if it's a two month cycle, you need to make sure they're on the whole time.  So if it was an August add on a two month cycle, that would have to have been very early in the month, since we're just in early Oct now.  They can take back the funds (or rather, deduct it from a future paycheck) if you remove the AU early and they have to refund them.

Just FYI for anyone reading this, that "remove date" is important, make sure it's that date (or later).  :)

But yeah, that first paycheck is sweet--the dollars per hour on that $400 is probably pretty high.

And future ones will be even higher, now that you're all set up (e.g. first paycheck you count all the initial paperwork setup, but future ones is just add/remove AU).  :D

This is BofA. I went back and read the emails, then logged into the site. Now I see the remove date. (POST EDIT: IN ADDITION TO YOUR COMMENT ABOUT 2 MONTHS ARS), I had a little memory telling me it was a 2 month deal. Why was I blind to it before? IDK! Good thing I'm lazy. I only looked into how to remove the user and decided to put off the actual removal. Phew.

Still no sales on my CHASE card. But it only pays out a lousy $306.25, so whatevs. Who am I kidding? I'd love to sell a spot on that too.

Now fo sho I know

I'm sorry I failed to give you credit there. In addition to that little memory nagging at me, it was really the ever-aware ARSE telling me 2 MONTHS! 2 MONTHS! that got me to stop and look further. Either way, laziness would have won the day, though.

If someone knows...

I have a card on file with them right now with 2 spots.  Am I remembering correctly that after the first month (or so) this can be increased to more than 2 spots?  I seem to recall 5 but cannot find where I may have read that.

If this is true, is it recommended to go to 5, stay at 2 or somewhere in the middle?

Thanks for any advice!

P.S. Just got my commission report today also.

It depends on the card.  Check the FAQ they sent you--some go to 5, some 2.

After you've had your first add, and it's posted (e.g. you get paid) you can indeed email to bump the # of spots.

IMO, anyone who had an August sale should be doing this now.  :)

If this is true, is it recommended to go to 5, stay at 2 or somewhere in the middle?

I go with the limits they recommend--e.g. they've capped some at 2 for a reason, but if they have another capped at 5, that's fine with me.  You almost never sell out anyways, but I'd rather have the cap at 5 to have a chance at a few more sales.  :)

Thanks again, ARS!  The FAQ did cover it..  I missed it when I looked earlier.

I just received my first commission report too. Clear, to the point, informative. This is pretty bitchin' so far.

My two Discover adds also required additional documents to be uploaded.

One guy just a social security card.  The other SS card, ID, and proof of address.  Seems like more hassle but i'll play along as long.

I've also just had Discover ask for verification. Do we email the contact at the company to get this additional information? I wonder if at some point it will become easier for the company to submit that information (attach it somehow) as part of the original set up - so that we have it easily available in these situations. Perhaps they are waiting to see how often Discover and other companies ask for the additional information?

Yep, email the investor support person.  I'd definitely ask her about that automatically being attached in the future, too.

Wonder if they'll keep accepting Discover if this is the case.

Very interesting to see how this industry shifts; crossing my fingers it lasts awhile. :)

I signed up at the end of August and haven't gotten an order yet. The person I was originally emailing with said to email after a month if I hadn't gotten an order, so I did, and I got a response that they were going to try to get me an order.

I thought part of the response might be useful to the wider group:

"During regular sales time it may still take a month or two to receive an order on your card, as many of our brokers tend to work with tradelines they have worked with in the past and know will post consistently."

Sounds like there may be a reputational sales aspect. In any other circumstance, I'd send a nice gift basket...

It's surprising to me that they're so open on their webpage about cards that they accept for the program.  Like: "HEY ENTIRE WORLD, THESE ARE THE CARDS THAT ARE EASY TO USE." The costs to credit card providers is not $0, they at least have to create and mail a card.  Because the additional AU won't be charging anything, it's not like there is a benefit to the credit card providers.  I see this industry closing down sooner because of how open they are about the cards that work and the ones that don't.

[Mod Edit: Snipped giant quote of entire first post, due to length.]

Ive gotta say sir, I am impressed. Ive been churning credit cards for about 20 years and have never heard of this but I can totally see how it works. I am new on here so nice to meet you. I only have one long term card that I can use. I usually churn about 5 cards at a time and reap the benefits, stack up the points and then close them so that I dont have to think about them anymore. But your new system I am tempted to start doing. Thanks for the post and good luck to you sir.

For anyone who may be curious, the rep did up my card to 5 (the limit for this issuer).  They did caution that 5 could lead to the card being shut down and offered to do less.  I'm sticking with 5 for now.  I may go down if I start getting a lot of activity.

why not just set the activity level on what they recommend. they are pretty versed in what it takes to keep you going in the system and a couple extra users vs a couple extra years of users is quite different.

I did.  Maybe my post wasn't clear.  Their limit (5) is what I went with but they cautioned me against it.

what bank is it.  their general "limit" for all banks is five if you ask them to do it they will.  if they are cautioning you against it ... it means they have a lower limit they know is successful b/c of the increased risk at 5 AUs vs a level they have found to be more successful in not shutting you down.

It is barclay.  I asked them to confirm it was 5 but maybe I confused them as much as I have these last couple of posts.  Thanks for your help.
