    PPC Payments and Fraud Filters
    My Capital One rewards card turns off about once a week due to fraud detection filters. My Wells Fargo rewards card did the same thing, which is the reason I moved to Capital One.

    Does anyone charge more than 1K a day on their card and not have fraud detection problems?

    I really don't want to go to invoicing of PPC because the rewards programs are incredibly awesome, but rewards cards may not be sustainable after a certain level of PPC spend?

    Thanks,
    James

    I don't spend quite that much, but close.

    Do you have a backup card listed at AdWords? That will help when/if your main card gets denied from the fraud detection.

    You might try an Amex. I highly recommend the Starwood Amex or Hilton Amex (or the new Hilton Surpass Amex). The hotel awards can be a very good value. You'll earn status at the hotels from your CC spend, which gives upgrades and other perks. You can transfer Starpoints to airline miles with a 5k bonus for every 20k transferred, which essentially means you earn 1.25 miles per dollar spent.

    I do have backup cards on YSM and Adwords, but Microsoft adcenter doesn't seem to take a backup card. Its adcenter that trips the filter most of the time, along with Paypal.

    If Amex doesn't work, I might try allocating a different card per service.

    I would recommend BofA. I've run into a few issues before and they have great customer service. I'm sure if you spoke to them and explained your situation they would provide the support you need.

    Good luck!

    I would at least put MSN on a separate card, if their charges are the ones causing the problems. The spend should be quite a bit less with MSN, so maybe by itself it wouldn't trigger any fraud alerts.
