This is a general observation, not targetted at anyone. Just wanted to see if my thinking is way out of line with society in general. A lot of what I am reading these days on BB about credit card bonus offers, it seems almost as if peeps are crossing over to the side of being obnoxious bullies. Apply for a card with a given bonus, ie Chase Preferred Card, get the 50k, another targetted offer comes out, everyone piles on, some get the additional bonus points, others don't. It's when they don't that the awful behaviour begins. Multiple calls/emails to CSR trying to get their own way, postings about how they are going to cancel their cards and how everyone else should as well, being the supermodel of credit card applications and complaining how it's not worth getting out of bed for a mere 50k points. I'll admit I got luck and did get the addtl 50k of Chase points. I'll also admit that I've never asked for a bump bonus before and I have never churned any cards to this point. I've made applications and gotten cards but have never applied just to get the bonus then dumped the card. I'm almost feeling as if peeps are becoming more about the game of getting the points rather than focussing on what they are going to do with them. Instead of seeing gratitude for what we do get, there seems to be a greater focus on the displeasure of what could have been. For example, BA card 100k points, spend the 30k and you are in First Class with a companion for very little effort and probably $1500 in surcharges. Instead peeps seem to whine ad-nauseum about the fees with very little focus on the fact that they and a mate are sitting in First Class for very little cost. All I know life is hard enough that I'm not going to allow myself to browbeat CSR's who are probably earning minimum wage to give me something to which I am not entitled.
