I went through a round of credit limit increase requests yesterday. I was successful; I got several thousand dollars more credit. But all of them asked why I wanted the increase. I told them I was thinking of starting a new business and wanted to have some extra credit available.

I'm new at this, though. What do I say in three months when I ask for another increase? If I give them the same reason, but they see that I haven't been charging anymore since my last increase, won't they think that's odd? How many times can I tell them I'm starting a new business, without actually charging any more on my cards, before they see through my little game?

I've only been asked once, and I just said I'd been doing some reading on credit scores and learned that it's important to have a good utilization ratio and higher limits help with that, so could I please have a higher limit. It worked.

Or tell them you just want to have more available credit.  They don't care, and don't check back months ago to previous requests. They're just filling a box.  :)

Well, I guess I must be the 1'st to get my card closed with the new company.  I just received a letter from B of A saying "This account is closed due to irregularity in Authorized user activity."  I had enrolled in January, and had 2 sales last month, and had just added a 3'rd this month.  I'm wondering if I'll get paid for anything now?

you need to inform the new company..  the site i currently use is having similar issues come in they've haulted all BofA sales.  Basically sounds to me like BofA is now dead for Tradelines.

Ick. 

Sorry.  =/

Can you CC me (you should have my email from the original referral info, but if not, PM me for it) when you message the tradeline company about it (or, if you've already messaged them, forward to me), so I can be in the loop as well?

I also just emailed them separately, and will keep everyone in the loop.

Ruh roh.  We have a 45k 1996 BofA with old company. Maybe we'll play it cool for a month or two.

I have multiple B of As enrolled between my wife and I, including a 45k card I added an AU to about 4 days ago.  =/

Well, this was one of the risks... I'll be interested to see how it plays out.

I signed up on the new portal today. They now only take cards that are 2 years old so my 18 months old cards I did not try to enroll. Hopefully this summer I can enroll those cards as they mature to 2 years. AT least I have my wife's 7 year old card and that is the only tradeline offer I have received thus far.
Thank you Arebelspy I did put you down as my referral.

I added 2 of my cards that were 18-20 months since they were previously accepted (by email from the owner).  I guess we'll see if they continue to take them.  You might want to add them or email asking.  If they get rejected, I will update my post to advise.

Heard back from the TL company.

They think the issue was that apparently there was an extra AU on the card (ss17's wife as an AU), so he went above the limit of 3 they do, to 4 total, which caused the cancellation.  Very important to tell them if any AUs are on there.  That's their best guess (no way to tell for sure, obviously).  This is the soonest they've seen a card shut down.

They haven't seen any systematic B of A shutdowns.

Citi is apparently doing an audit right now and shutting down some cards, and they've talked with several other TL companies who are seeing the same thing.

In their experience (~10 years in business), it happens every once in awhile (about every 18 to 24 months), for a month or two, then calms back down for awhile.

+1. Can't hurt to add them.  :)

My first add was a dud :( Citi could not verify the SSN for the AU and I had a lengthy phone call with their Fraud Department. Citi told me that they will sent me a form in the mail which I will have to complete and attach a copy of the SSN card of the AU and mail it back to them. But the AU was added to the card without the SSN. I relayed the information to the company and they told me to ignore the form and do nothing (leave the AU on the card).

This should not have happened since per the company they do a verification of the SSN of all their customers before sending them out for addition, huh!

Have since added 2 AUs to the same card without any problems. But now with the Citi Audit not sure when the card will be shut down.

Weird. The latter two tends to happen much more often. Adds that don't post happen, but infrequently (I'd guess maybe 1 in 20?).

Yeah, I'm curious to see how the various companies play out (B of A, Citi, etc.).  Crossing my fingers!

Weird. Easiest explanation is they don't verify the SSN in the IRS database, but maybe there's another possibility.

It isn't clear from the email - do I need to create 2 different accounts for my cards and my wife's on the new portal? Maybe I missed a note about it. Thought I might get a quicker reply here.

Did you originally sign two agreements?

I did two different accounts for my wife and I, as we have different SSNs for payment (though I used the same email--just a different username, phone, and bank account for payment on both).

I received the email to add my cards.  I also participated in the beta. 

As when helping test the beta, when i submit all my info for a card, i click "Save" and no card is added.  I then click "Exit" and no card is added.

Is there some magic I'm supposed to do to get my cards added?  I emailed them about 10 days ago with this issue and never heard back.

Any suggestions for those that have been able to get this to work?

Once you add a card, it should show up as "pending" in the my cards section.

Updated information regarding payouts:

Currently it happens roughty one month after your close (as mentioned in my comparison post)--usually within a few days, after they check everything posted correctly.  So those of you with January adds should see payment any time, if you haven't yet.

It may switch to the end of the following month, the way new company does it, due to the way the system is structured with the new portal.  I'll update the original posts if and when that happens.

So for now, payouts from the manual emails should be arriving about a month after you add them.

I had to switch to Firefox when I signed up because the pop up box to enter my information was cut off and I couldn't see the line for my first name.  People with bigger screens or higher resolution probably won't have a problem.

I also really like the green loading bar on the new interface, it reminds me of computer games from the early 90s.

I just got the email this morning and am having the same problem as you. I tried both Chrome and Firefox. I click the button, nothing happens, and nothing shows up in "my cards".

Check your popup settings - if you've got them set to the most restrictive, it could be blocking the popup asking if all the information is correct. You have to click "Yes" on that before you'll get the cool 90's video game loading bar.

What does the "Used Card in past 60 days" mean? It does not allow to click the "Yes" button.

I thought it was asking "have you used the card in the past 60 days?"  I was able to choose yes or no.  You may want to try a different browser since some have noted browser issues.  Firefox worked fine for me on Windows.

I can not add a card either using chrome, but it worked yesterday. I did have to adjust my zoom to 75%
in the browser. But now can not add any more cards, I wonder if it is because they are less than 2 years old or is this a glich.

I was able to add my three cards. They have statement dates around the 25th. So hopefully I get sales here shortly and don't miss another month... :(

Just got an email to sign up for new company's portal!
Current status is: they are sending out emails in batches to not overwhelm the portal with everyone signing up for it at once.  So some people will have gotten an email (a small percent of Mustachians, around 10%, I believe) today, and then more will get it over the next few days.

I'd guess everyone will get it within the next week or two.

I believe the last batch of emails should go out tomorrow, and then everyone should have received it.

If you want tradeline sales, go on and create a login, and add your cards into the system.

If you want to get the higher MMM payouts, make sure you put MMM/Joe as the referral in the drop down.

I just got the email this morning and am having the same problem as you. I tried both Chrome and Firefox. I click the button, nothing happens, and nothing shows up in "my cards".

Using explorer probably solves the problem

I have a question that I'm sure we've gone over but can't find it in the first few pages.

If I keep my spouse listed as an authorized user, does that reduce the number of spots I should sell at a time?

What if I keep my spouse + daughter on the card?

Thanks and again sorry if this has been posted. MMM search utility is not .. uh .. terribly helpful.

Yes, that will reduce the number of spots. Make sure you let the company know, or you'll be at a much higher risk of card cancellation (by going over the limits the raise flags to the CC issuers).

I'd personally remove the extra people, then just add them (and let TL company know) only when they'll be applying for credit, but you can just reduce your spots open for sales if you'd like.

I signed up on the new portal today. They now only take cards that are 2 years old so my 18 months old cards I did not try to enroll. Hopefully this summer I can enroll those cards as they mature to 2 years. AT least I have my wife's 7 year old card and that is the only tradeline offer I have received thus far.
Thank you Arebelspy I did put you down as my referral.

I added 2 of my cards that were 18-20 months since they were previously accepted (by email from the owner).  I guess we'll see if they continue to take them.  You might want to add them or email asking.  If they get rejected, I will update my post to advise.

My 18-20 month old cards were accepted/activated.  If anyone has cards over 18 months with limits over 12K (my suggestion), I would put them in.

Just checking in to say, I did get the email a couple of days back, but have not had the time to create account.
On todo list for this weekend.

I did get two more spots sold a couple of days ago. Thanks ARS!!

The email now said to get the cards AND activate them, unlike the last adds where they just wanted me
to get card, but not activate.
This is a big hassle for me, being a fulltime traveller and receiving mail at a friends place,
where I don't want cards mailed to with a bunch of different names.
I did ask my contact person, if it's absolutely mandatory to get card and activate and she said it was not.
So I opted to not do that.
I understand that means a higher risk to me, as the card issuer could question the adds, but there's no disadvantage to the AUs.
If I knew I'd sell that many spots on a regular basis, it would be worthwhile investing in a mail forwarder, but at this point
the deal I have with my friend, works fine for me.

I've never activated an AU's card.  You're good.  :)

Worth setting up the portal.  It's quick. Probably 5 minutes to create a login, and 1-2 minutes per card needing to add.

Yep I just did. Easy peasy.
Just had so much other stuff to do after coming back from my trip, but finally got around to this as well.
Wish I had more cards to add ;)

Mail forwarders may not help you, at least for activating the cards, depending on how they work for receiving mail. Was discussed earlier, if the mail forwarder expects to only see mail addressed to your, they may return or destroy the AU addressed mail on receipt.

I believe the last batch of emails should go out tomorrow, and then everyone should have received it.

If you want tradeline sales, go on and create a login, and add your cards into the system.

If you want to get the higher MMM payouts, make sure you put MMM/Joe as the referral in the drop down.

Should I be concerned that I have not received an email yet?
