I'm still waiting on payment from the new company for orders in January & February. Seems long to me based on other payments. Anyone else not getting paid in a timely fashion?

It's a constant struggle for me.  I usually give it an extra month, then start emailing.  Sometimes takes a few tries before I get a response.

This is the reason I don't deal with the "new" company anymore, despite the slightly higher payouts.  I moved all my cards to the "old" company 2 years ago.  The Old company has never been late, never required extra emails, and never paid out the wrong amount.

To be clear, I've never had an issue with not being paid or being paid the wrong amount.  Just takes a little extra legwork, and is a little irritating.

Same for me.

I do not believe I have ever been paid by the New company unless I first sent an email or two.

Hi all,
Can someone share (or tell me where to find) the names of the companies for this? I've got several older credit cards with high limits and want to get started with this!
Also, how many cards do you recommend applying for at one time?
Any and all info greatly appreciated!

Not the first time I've gotten mail for an AU but it usually looks like credit card offers or junk. Wonder if I will get an in-person visit next?

FWIW, we use a travelling mailbox service as mailing address. We have that address originally for other reasons, but it's proven handy for selling tradelines since no mail comes to us. The services usually only accept mail addressed directly to you, so anything addressed to AU is automatically destroyed, including the AU card (at least this was my understanding).

One caveat, we have never had a problem, but recently I had communication from one credit card company regarding returned mail. I assume this was AU cards sent to mailbox address which were returned to sender instead of destroyed. That triggered a little bit of account double checking, enough that it became easier for me to rest that card than deal with it.

Do you put that traveling mailbox address as your home address with the banks? If so, have you ever had problems with the address not being residential? AFAIK many banks have databases of residential vs commercial/mail forwarding addresses. They can flag and even freeze or close accounts registered with mail forwarding addresses.

I've used traveling mailbox for the last four years (aug 2015 - aug 2019) as my address on everything (banks, ccs, etc) with no issues.

They do send back mail, so AU cards are returned. Never had an issue with that.

Thanks. I am considering three mail forwarding companies: Traveling Mailbox, Escapees and St Brandan's Isle. Do you know if Traveling Mailbox is less likely to get flagged by banks as a non-residential address? Why did you choose Traveling Mailbox vs its competitors?

I don't know anything about those other ones. I don't recognize those two names. There were a few other competitors, but I couldn't say why four years ago I chose that one over them.

I do like Traveling Mailbox. Really good customer service when you need anything.

@Padonak   I have no personal experience with any of these.  I have seen all 3 and probably others discussed on the forum here.  You might try a couple of searches.  It seems a good number of people use these services.

I've mainly used traveling mailbox as home address for about three years, there were a couple of instances it wouldn't work, as you referred to. In that case I used the traveling mailbox as mailing address and a physical address as home address. Won't derail thread too much further, but was discussed a bit more here: https://forum.mrmoneymustache.com/post-fire/us-address-(renter)-during-extended-livingtraveling-overseas/msg2229942/#msg2229942

Will add this also means the traveling mailbox address shows up on my credit report. A couple times with mortgage applications this has led to some fun questions from underwriters, depending on how much due diligence they are doing

As ARS said, I like traveling mailbox. Good interface, good enough pricing. All works well. I haven't tested the others, I'm sure they are good too?

Discover has requested a callback (via email and mail, the number matches that on the back of my card) to discuss in detail the 2 tradeline I have added.  Has anyone else been asked for this, and if so what has been shared?

It happened to me a few times. They called to confirm that i added the AUs. A couple of times they requested supporting documents (drivers license and SSN card).

I don't sell tradelines, but I've followed along here occasionally.  I added a cousin to an old high limit account a few years ago to help with her credit score.  The card came to my house, as expected.

A couple weeks ago, my mother added me to her Chase Sapphire account.  We were renting a car, I was driving, and we wanted the extra insurance. 

Instead of sending the card to her house, it came to mine. 

If I were selling tradelines, this would make me very nervous.  Why would they send the card to me???

That's really weird, and against their protocol.

I imagine your mom might be able to call and find out why.

In any case, it's not something I worry about in the slightest.  In a combined 20ish years between the 2 TL companies, they've never once had an AU make an unauthorized charge on a card they're authorized on.

In 3+ years since I first posted and many many (thousands?) of AU sales for Mustachians, no one has ever reported an issue with an AU making a charge on their CC.

It's just not something I'd worry about at all, personally.

I tried replacing the card and changing the product... didn't work. What's the limit btw? I think it was about 34 on the card I tried to replace.

I trust Chase not to send it to the AU address because in their online "add AU" process they explicitly say which address they'll send it to, and it's always my address, not the AU address.

I've added AUs to multiple cards across multiple issuers and never had one go to the AU address.  I did have one CSR once say they were going to ship it to the AU, but I asked her to send it to me instead, and it came to me.  I think she was an inexperienced CSR.

There are a couple of issuers, and Chase may be one of them, where if you specifically ask them to send the card to the AU, they will.  If it was a family member, that's probably what I would do.  It's what I'm guessing @geekette's Mom did in this case.

They are 2 individuals who helped me earn some side money and who may have need to access to my credit card for future purchasing requirements - and if so I will deliver the cards to them directly.

This is GOLD. Perfectly logical, true and on the up-and-up.

For those of you with multiple Barclay cards, it is true you can't access them all from a single online account? I just got my first 2 from them and that is what the rep said though one is a business version.

I can access both of my Barclays cards from a single login, although in my case both are personal cards.

For those of you with multiple Barclay cards, it is true you can't access them all from a single online account? I just got my first 2 from them and that is what the rep said though one is a business version.

I can access both of my Barclays cards from a single login, although in my case both are personal cards.

Same here.

Good. It may be because one is a business card then. With Chase you must link the business card first and then have them add the personal card so I'll try that once it arrives.

Hi,
How often can you apply for a new Barclay card? I applied for one recently and got accepted (for $14K). I applied for another one a few days later and was denied. Thoughts?
Also, do you get any warnings before they shut down a card? I can't find anything written specifically on my agreement that states you cannot have multiple AUs (or that being a reason for them to shut down your card.

Thanks all!

Is anyone having problems adding AUs to their USAA card? I need to add 2 AUs and USAA couldn't do it for me yesterday nor today. They claim it's the system but I'm wondering if it's a subtle "hey chill out with these AUs." They don't know when it will be working again.

I had "system problems" twice when I tried to add a third AU to my USAA card.  USAA was unable to add the AU even after multiple attempts both times.  I think USAA is OK with 2 at a time but not 3 at a time, but nobody told the front line CSRs that.

If you have any AUs on your USAA card currently that you can remove, remove them and try again.  Otherwise I think your only option is to tell the AU company that you were unable to add.

Thanks for the feedback. I already have 2 AUs and they want to add two more (all with the same company) so that must be what's causing the problem. I'm surprised the tradeline company isn't aware of this limitation.

I have not opened a new one in a few years.  However, in my experience, they are more picky than other issuers.  I would suggest waiting a few months between cards with them (at a minimum).

Not sure which company you are using but I am always limited to 2 AUs for USAA. I prefer to keep it that way as it' a really old high limit card so it's very profitable. Also adding AUs with USAA is a PITA!

Why does the new company send rules out about prompt replies but they don't show the same courtesy when it comes to payment?  I bet if I would never say anything I would never get paid.  I don't think I have got a payment yet without me pestering them.  Orders from March and June.

I have only had a single $50 sale in the last year with the new company.  Did this completely dry up for anyone else? Will I have more luck if I switch over to the old company?

Yeah, old company is seeing more sales (and no payout lag), but their card restrictions are higher (30k minimum limits, 5 years old).

If your cards fit, I tend to recommend people go there. If your cards don't, better to use new company and get occasional sales than a riskier company, IMO, but YMMV.

I don't have any cards that qualify for that.  Did too many mustachians flood the market?  Or is there something else going on causing a drought? Or am I just on the unlucky end of the sales spectrum? Or did I get black balled or something? I was late to the game, but I feel like I sold a decent amount in 2018 right up until about august, and since then I had just a single $50 sale on one card in early 2019.

For sure, my older, larger CC accounts which you would think would be more attractive (5+ yrs old, high limits) rarely sell if at all.

The newer accounts that barely seem worth getting AU status on (1-2 yrs old, low limits) at least sell occasionally.

I haven't had any sales this year either, which is ok.
I only have a couple cards that qualify and they do have a limited number of spots.
I rather get one occasionally and stay under the radar, then using up my spots quickly and raising red flags.

Can a BBVA credit card be used for tradelines with any of the companies?

To be fair, I've found the side of the house that sends out these emails (and handles all the admin stuff) to be very responsive.  It's just the payment side that lags.  It would be nice if they could just automate it.

I have one with the old company.  It was one that I shotgunned when they were looking for new, low limit cards for 2 month, $25 slots.  I think both companies change what they'll take on an almost daily basis.  It's worth shooting them the specs on the card (age and limit).  I get 2 AUs on that card every period.
