The card was approved and the website said it would work but, of course, it didn't. I called Zappos. They said I had to call Chase. So I knew I was fucked right then. So I called to cancel the application and the card. Chase's telephone tree stretches from here to heaven and back and has limbs that touch all continents. I talked to 5 people in 65 minutes and finally the last guy told me that someone would have to call me in 24-48 hours to complete the cancellation. WTF???
My other credit card is a Chase Amazon card. Zappos had put the order on that one.
So I called Zappos back and canceled the order. They gave me a $100 gift coupon! And were so nice about it all. I am wiping Chase out of my life. I made a payment to cover current charges and pending charges and that's the end.
I sent emails to Chase telling them to cancel the cards. They did cancel my Amazon one and I have their cancellation in writing. The other one?? It's a mystery. But I don't care. I'm so over them.
I started a list of everything that has that card and that I now need to change. I'm going to get a Capital One card and, until then, use my Discover card or my debit card. I then went online and changed all the accounts that needed it immediately.
What a PIA. But, it's probably good to have started that list/tracking. My credit will probably take a hit but it's really sold and has been for years so a one time, explainable hit isn't going to cause major trouble.
I love Zappos. I hate Chase.
