Unexpected Windfall

I’ve reluctantly let go of my CSR. Just couldn’t justify having 2 premium travel cards. I managed to downgrade it to a no-fee Freedom Flex card during the grace period to get the full CSR annual fee back. What I didn’t realize was that the $300 travel credit is yours once used. Meaning the 2021/2022 $300 travel credit that I had already applied to our Hawaii car rental during the grace period doesn’t get clawed back even though I’ve canceled the card.*

Now, we have an unexpected 4-day culinary trip to Tucson paid for by Chase this Labor Day week. It’ll be 10 years since we’ve been back to Tucson, home to some of the best tacos in the US. Fish tacos, what SoCal is known for, are fine but nothing beats a good Sonoran style mesquite-grilled carne asada taco.

The CSR card is now serving as my new bookmark (currently re-reading The Pillars of the Earth, after having just finished the prequel — The Evening and the Morning)

*Additionally, Chase had given me a $100 statement credit to apply towards my annual fee a month ago. I’m waiting for them to claw it back, but it hasn’t happened yet.
