  1. Hi Daraius, I tried to use Contact page but couldn’t find where to leave a comment. I have 2 questions to bother you with.
    1. We have been banking with Chase for yrs both business and personal. Sometime in April Chase decided to “end relationship” with us. They closed all our personal checking and saving and credit cards including Unite Select and Freedom which I had for yrs and IHG and Hyatt card we had for 2 or 3 yrs and Freedom Unlimited we just opened. The only reason i can think of is we do lots of MS and deposited lots of MOs in our personal checking. Other than that we were never late with payments and we were having great relationship with Chase. They even contacted us about being their private client i think that’s what is called but we never took time to sit down to talk to them. After all this we wrote to Chase and complained to our senator and the government entity that regulates banking industry which i don’t remember the name of it since it has been a while. But nothing worked. Chase just sent us letters and confirmed their decision with no explanation ever. Now after we returned from our 2 months summer vacation overseas we decided to get back on the miles and pts game. I’m curious if you know after what happened to us what our chance is to get approved by Chase for their personal credit cards say Hyatt and Chase Unlimited if we r okay with 5/24? Chase did leave all our 3 business checking and 2 Ink Plus card alone. Any insights/suggestion would be highly appreciated.
    2. What’s the best app to use to store all credit cards electronically? I understand Apple Wallet only allow so many cards. I have been using Wallet Plus Pro but just found out they charge every time you edit old cards or save new cards if you want to “backup”. Who wouldn’t want to back up every time they make changes?

    Thank you for all you do!
