Citi closed my card for selling tradelines. I have a few more Citi cards which I don't use for AUs and they are still open.

I haven't gotten a spot on my card filled in almost 5 months now... has anyone else had this issue?
It had been barren since October but got 4 AU's in last month with new company.

Am I the only one who invariably has to send at least 2 reminders every time I'm due payment from the new company?

Really kind of gets old.

Yeah, their slow payment (discussed many times before) is the main annoying thing about New Company.

I've found it doesn't make a difference emailing or not--you wait, and they pay, or you email a few times, and they pay at about the same time they would have otherwise. I stopped a long time ago, and still get paid on the same (late) schedule. *shrug*  YMMV.

Chase is quite risky; I wouldn't go over two, personally.

(Their closures are rare, but when they do, they blackball you. So flying under their radar if you do use Chase is prudent.)

I'm new to selling and just got a notice to remove my 2nd client from my Chase card.  Chase's website allowed me to add clients online, but according to the website, I have to call a live phone rep to remove.  Talking to a live person makes me nervous about them noticing all my authorized user activity.  Do all Chase cards require removals by phone??  I'm wondering how people manage to do this for years before getting their cards cancelled.

Yes, Chase requires removals by phone.  Its different bank by bank.  Barclays allows for AUs to be added and removed online, others required a phone call for add/remove. 

I don't think the CS reps care about add/remove AUs or can do anything about it if they wanted to.  From my experience the banks have fraud rules in place that scan cards and automatically close if a certain set of rules are broken.

Hey FTworth,
For the past year I have always removed my Chase AUís by using Chaseís Secure Messages.
Works like a charm. 
I just state ďplease remove authorized user John Doe from my card ending in 4012Ē
They reply back usually in 4-8 hours and let me know if is completed.

Good tip!  Citi used to allow adding w/ssn through secure message but it was nice for some reason.

The risk with Chase is that if they close anything, they close everything.  All cards, any bank accounts, everything.  I had done well after adding a couple of my Chase cards, but since my oldest card (by like 8 years) is from Chase, I removed them from tradeline sales.

Yup. I made $1,725 from my Chase cards from sales before they shut me down. They shut down all 5 of my cards... :(  Was it worth it? Yeah, I would say so - though I was hoping I could earn a bit more before they caught on to me. On a bright note, they did still credit 2100 Hyatt points to my account even after it was closed. I was not expecting to get them, so that was a small silver lining at least.

FYI,

I received notification today that Bank of America was closing all my credit card accounts with them due to "Irregular authorized user activity on one or more of your accounts." I only ever sold tradelines on one of the cards, and it's been about a year since my last sale.

Easy come, easy go.

Weird they did that.

I've had a card closed by B of A (and my wife had one as well at the same time), but they only closed that one card--we have other cards with them still (and still sell tradelines on them). We also have other bank accounts and stuff though--maybe that's why they didn't shut all ours down? It would be a pain if those were shut down.

Or maybe their policy changed (it's been a few years since they shut our cards down).

Thanks for the info!

I find it weird they did so after such a long break. At least mine had been fairly active.

The old company emailed last year that they had some shutdowns on BoA so they were going to rest it for awhile. I had good sales on it, 18 years old and $20,000 limit.

The worst part is one of the other cards that was closed was used for gasoline and recurring payments and had $20 in unclaimed rewards on it. Gone. Heh. :)

When I was shuffling around credit limits with BoA and talking with the CSR, I got the impression that some cards are BoA owned cards and others were just co-branded (like University of Cash kinda cards) and they could care less what you did with the co-branded ones.  Want to close down University.  Oh, that's cool and I can do that right now, Mr. Car Jack.  But try to touch an actual BoA card and "Oh, I'm so sorry to hear you want to close this.  Is there anything I can do to change your mind.....and I mean ANYTHING!?"  Holy cow.....I'm not Robert Kraft.....I'll just leave it open, ok.  "Oh, I'm sooooo happy to hear that.".

Even though discover canceled my account months (a year?) ago, they still send me free credit monitoring alerts, so Iíve got that going for me, which is nice

They canceled one of my cards too. Did you even attempt to re-open it? They closed mine without any explanation and I never called to dispute it.

No they gave a vague explanation which maybe Iíll sue them if I get bored with the retired life.  Some other guy in the thread mentioned some decent settlements

Barclays is really taking care of me.  After maxing out AU's a few months ago on my first card, I put it in the sock drawer.  They increased my limit.  LOL

They increased your credit limit or the limit of AU's?

I had one sale in January and one in February.  None since, and have not been paid for either of those sales despite emailing Cliff almost a month ago.

Yea I'm thinking I should pull my cards and switch to the old company instead.  Are sales more steady with them?

Does anyone use Banco Popular cards for tradelines? I have an Avianca card which I can potentially downgrade, not sure if tradeline companies accept these cards.

I've had a regular stream of sales from the old company ever since I enrolled a while back.  And payments are 100% on time and completely transparent.
