Chase: Looking at credit cardholder transactions
The Lightspeed Financial Services Group line of products is continued with another look at credit cards. Consumer preference is for a steady payment when it comes to reward schemes, but what do people think about registering together for a new ticket? Our latest article tells us what attracts new cardholders.
Some 62% of new merchants say that requesting their new cards had no effect on the use of other cards in their purses - but 38% have cancelled or stopped the use of another one, according to the Lightspeed FSG in the New card acquisition study 2017. Cancelling or terminating the use of older cards was most common among those who opened Citi cards (50%) and least common among those who opened Chase cards (35%).
Approximately one in five new Citi owners who have substituted a map says that it originates from American Express and probably reflects the Costco map transformation in 2016. One of the main causes why new owners were shut down or discontinued using another credit or debit cards is because they didn't like the old card's reward (24%) or didn't like the annual percentage rate of charge (20%).
Chase merchants have most likely substituted one for better reward (37%), while Discover has benefited most from merchants looking for a better APR (37%). Every fifth new Bank of America cardholder shut down or discontinued the use of a credit transfer because they had deposited funds and no longer wanted to use the credit transfer.
Seventeen percent of new American Express owners did not close or use an older credit line because they did not like the credit line so much.

In New York, there were clear indications that travellers tip more when using cards. People are carrying less money than before. Briefly, there are only two stabile balances: either a) no cabins take cards or b) all.
Recently I suggested that 20 percent of study places should be reserved for older people. This is because the extension of higher learning has restricted people's liberty not to go to school. A lot of people may even favour a four-day workingweek. However, it is devilishly hard to change this - because the first to come out of the rows always pays the highest one.
I always find it strange that people get up at 7 a.m. and go to work in crowded trams just to get to their desk and reply to e-mails, which is just as good at home.
