Credit Cards / Cash Back & Rewards Options

Recommended Posts

I can't seem to find the USAA Limitless Card on their website.  I read on another website that the USAA Limitless Card was released in Fall 2016 to a small sample group on a trial basis.  Seems like a good deal that I'd like to take advantage of.  For those that have it, how did you get it?

When I login to USAA and search for the word "limitless," it's there in the first return. It does say "online pilot, limited availability" so YMMV depending on what that means. I have the card already, so ops checks good in Tennessee.

I upvoted nsplayr's post on April 3, so I'm guessing that's when I either ordered or received mine. So far I've redeemed a little over $200.00... Well worth it.

It does look like you have to call USAA and give member services your member number to find out whether or not the offer was extended to you. I feel like a member of an exclusive USAA club now.

Copy all.  I searched the USAA site and no luck.  Apparently I'm not a part of the Limitless club.  I'll give them a call next week.  Thanks for the help!

It doesn't show up under Products/credit cards?  It's the first option that shows up for me?  It says "online pilot" though.

Search limitless, first option on the results page is something to the effect of “Choose which credit card option is best for you.” Pretty generic sounding title, just looks like it’s taking you to a credit card page. Once I clicked that, Limitless was the top option.

I called USAA and they stated the Limitless Card wasn't available in my area (NW Florida) yet.  They were unable to provide an estimated timeline.  So, no card for me...

Weird, I’m in FL (not NW though) and got it.

I'm not seeing the matrix on the inter webs.  I'm looking for United, Southwest and Marriot rewards all in one, maybe Chase Sapphire, anyone?

SPG Amex, while it lasts, would be a good option. 25% bonus on 20k transfers to airlines and transfers 1:3 to Marriott points.

2 on the SPG if those are your goals. Solid card all around. PM me if you want a referral link.

Anyone ever experienced getting the government rate purchasing though AMEX?  Strange question, I know, but it's how my TDYs work now.

Do you mean booking GOV rate through amextravel.com?  Or just paying for a GOV rate room with an AMEX?  I've done the second many a time, but I don't know of any way to book government rate through the Amex travel portal.

I went with Chase Sapphire due to United/Southwest/Marriot rewards.  United has a government rate website for airline tickets and I just pay the hotel rate.

Has anyone cracked the code with AMEX on getting SCRA as an ART? Got it AMEX, I'm not AD anymore (thank God), but I still wear a uniform to work every day as a military officer.  Nothing has changed as far as they should be concerned...but apparently it's completely different.

I wasn't able to get anywhere but my bro called and the dude he talked to didn't care one bit if he was AD or not. Once he explained that he is still in the military full time, the rep continued his SCRA benefits for another year. My thoughts is that it will depend on who you talk to if/when you call in to the rep. 

I just paid the yearly fee but we have a 3-4 monther coming up under Title X that I will be requesting SCRA for, which should mean I get reimbursed for the yearly fee charges on the card.

So I've had a Cap 1 card for 15 years (3 years before I joined active duty) and applied a couple of months ago for SCRA benefits. Just the other day I received a $925 credit on my account. Awesome deal if you have had a card since before you went active duty. Took 8-7 minutes on their website. Worth looking into.

Does the AMEX annual fee refund automatically apply to new cards picked up after the initial card fee waiver?

Not always. I’ve been charged the fee on a new card once or twice (out of 10 or 11 cards total) but it was quickly resolved by reapplying for SCRA online.
