your credit card funding page does no allow additional comments any longer, the link to add comments or reply is down. Is it a technical issue or has that area been closed for comments. was going to update a couple of them that i have funded. specifically bbva funded with citi AA $5000 as purchase


BBVA declined my $5000 Citi AA fund, I assume since my CA limit lower because there is much more available credit.
