    Wonder if the site will require us to submit CC#'s. I hope it can be done just with Card brand and version.

    From what I am told, you will not have to input any of your CC #'s

    After thinking about it, I wonder if this site is such a good thing. Hopefully it won't draw too much extra attention to credit card churning and ruin some of the great opportunities out there.

    Yep, agree. Just like the coin deal that was ruined for everyone by drawing too much attention to it.

    There's a contradiction in that statement ;)

    Unlike the coin deal, more wannabe churners will work just fine for CC companies, the amount made off of silly mistakes will be quite a handsome reward.

    It kinda goes both ways. Obviously the credit card companies want people to apply for their cards with the deals offered. However, it also seems like if too many people wait for the big offers & no one goes for the lessers deals, then the massive bonus offers will probably slow down.

    might lead to stipulations in future card agreements stating you have to have the account open for "X" amount of months or years, kinda like what cable/sat companies due with their promos that last one year but require a two year contract.

    If I remember correctly, a good number of them already have stipulations that you can only apply for the bonuses once, but they do not enforce them in any way

    Well now that's not exactly true... You have to know which cards are churnable, which are not...

    While we are on the subject of credit cards. Check out my tip on Rick's site about protecting your credit inbetween churns here: http://www.frugaltravelguy.com/

    I hope this helps someone.

    That does not appear to contradict anything in my statement, just another facet.

    Wrong. You said that the CC companies do not enforce rules regarding getting a bonus more than once. Many companies will not give you multiple bonuses so that would be their way of enforcing the rules...

    I am not sure what you are actually arguing against here. Not only did you misread what I said, after having done so, you are addressing a whole different topic than the one I brought up. I'll break it down for you so you will not attribute things to me again that I did not say:
    - I didn't say that the CC companies do not enforce. The devil is in the details, but your re-wording radically changes what I said.
    - Just because some companies allow churn or have rules that they ignore and allow churn, does not mean that there aren't numerous other companies that flat out not allow churn. I never said that there are no companies out there that do not allow churn.

    There is no argument here, I just stated that your initial comment was incorrect.

    -You said- "If I remember correctly, a good number of them already have stipulations that you can only apply for the bonuses once, but they do not enforce them in any way"
    -My response was- "Well now that's not exactly true... You have to know which cards are churnable, which are not..."

    If you would like to point out what I saw was so wrong, then do so...Otherwise I am done! lol

    You flat out did not address what I said. You then followed up by misquoting me to make your misdirection stronger:

    I do hope you are done, as you made a valid point that in no way addressed what I said and are refusing to actually read. Toda.
     
  19. So the a site seems to simply be selling a $47 ebook. How does it help you track? Or will that functionality be launched in the future. Is the whole site yours or are you just the author of the book?

    Hmmm. From that site:

    " In this guide, expert card churner Len Williams, shows you his system for earning hundreds of thousands of frequent flyer miles every single year. Len has earned and redeemed miles for free travel for years, and now he is going to teach you to do the same. "

    A bit of a disclaimer (vs the vague and misleading "I am eagerly awaiting the launch") might have been appropriate here. Don't expect to buy the ebook.
