I dutifully fill out travel notifications for my credits when they have online forms, like Capital One and Chase. Amex says notification is not needed for their cards. Many travelers don’t bother or find the notifications do not seem to have effect. Since my destinations come fast and unusual, I keep submitting notifications.
As I pass through Tokyo-Narita I find a notice from Chase Fraud Alerts that I not longer need to submit travel notifications on my Hyatt card:
I have not received this notice for my other personal cards, either with or without Smart Chip, or my business credit cards. MJ on Travel has received the email for his Marriott card, and his readers have similarly reported only receiving notices on certain of their cards.
I have the Hyatt, Marriott and Priority Club cards and generally try to use them a bit when overseas to have some activity on these cards that I keep for the benefits, not spend. I have never had a fraud issue with a Chase card, so cannot report on that.
