That means I don’t get down further — what card should you get next, or if you aren’t going to get the one I prefer for whatever reason? And thanks to Chase’s ‘5/24’ limits where they won’t approve most people for new rewards cards if they’ve had 5 or more new cards in the last 24 months, American Express is increasingly where frequent flyers have looked t...

Leaked Documents Are ‘Goldmine’ For New York Attorney General’s NRA Probe

The company behind NRATV was paying for National Rifle Association chief Wayne LaPierre’s expensive Italian suits and foreign travel, before charging at least some of those costs back to the NRA itself.  Sound like a puzzling arrangement? You’re not alone.  New York state non-profit attorneys told TPM that the setup raised serious questions about whether LaPierre was using an NRA vendor to conceal costs for his luxury purchases from the organization’s books, and could be fodder for an on...
