I recently got an email from Chase about my Chase Sapphire Preferred Credit Card. It stated that Travel Notices Are No Longer Required on my account. The notice said:
In the past, you may have notified us of your travel plans to ensure uninterrupted service while traveling. Because we value your business and your use of this card, you no longer need to provide us with your travel information.
Ironically, I was traveling when I received this notice, and I was traveling in the United States, which is very unusual for me. The very next day I got a Fraud Alert Email.
In the past, I would receive call from Chase regarding Fraud. This email allowed me to quickly select the appropriate response. I clicked on yes, I recognized the charge, and continued shopping. The funny thing was that I was in Australia, Fiji and Hong Kong the month prior and never got a Fraud Alert Notification. I go shopping in Vegas…Fraud alert!
I prefer the ability of responding to Fraud Alerts via email. What has your experience been with Fraud Alerts on your credit cards?
