Monitoring the account is generally a good thing but I've read that it sometimes backfires on the cardholder. There have been instances where the cardholder took an extended vacation, sometimes out of the country, and the card issuer not being able to reach anyone at home to verify the unusual charges, put a freeze on the card. Maybe if you're planning such a trip it would be a good idea to notify the card issuer in advance.
