Alaska MBNA Mastercard FINALLY back on Great Canadian Rebates (GCR.ca)

A year ago, the Alaska MBNA Mastercard, which offers 25,000 Alaska points on sign-up with a $75 annual fee, which I have written extensively about, used to have a $60 rebate with Great Canadian Rebates (GCR). Unfortunately, when MBNA changed their Bank of America system to the new TD system, the Alaska MC was pulled off their rebate list. When folks asked GCR when it will come back on the list for rebates, the response was typically “in a month”… which went on for many, many months.

Did you close your credit card? Did you REALLY close it?

I was just sitting on the sofa, and got an email from Equifax saying there’s been a “rate change” to a credit report. I logged in and saw that the credit score dropped significantly. I dug deeper, and I saw that a credit card was listed as being late, as “bad debt.” WHAT. THE. HELL!? I’ve never missed a payment in my life.
