Your address, your credit card, your mail!

Your address, your credit card, your mail! People travel, on a 24 hour 7 day 365 day rotation, and one of the most important things that we take with us besides our luggage, money, and personal belongings is our credit cards. Some people have a preference to take a credit card with them rather that cash. One of the most important things when applying for a credit card is to have your address down correct, so you fill out the credit card application for an American Express Blue Card, and your address is 5719 Flamingo Road, and you fill out the form with your address as 5917 Flamingo Road, guess where your credit card is going to go to? It’s going to go to the address that you printed on the form for the credit card. What problems can arise from this? First you might be traveling out of town on a business trip to Italy for two weeks, and this credit card will be used to document food that you will be reimbursed back by your company, as well as rental car expenses, so your card is verified as being sent by American Express through the U.S. Mail, and you notice that a mistake was made with your address, the first thing that you should do would be to contact your credit card company, and if you have 5 days left before you leave, normally your credit card company will cancel the other card, and do a rush shipment on a new card, if your Mailman knows you normally they will catch the mistake, and deliver your mail to your house, apartment, condo, and etc., so always fill out a form legibly, because sometimes as humans we make errors, and it’s important to watch your account when dealing with errors, and to correct them immediately as soon as you recognize that you made a mistake. Your address, your credit card, your mail! More than just a blog!
