Up In The Air / Re: Free Jetsmarter Membership Status Match

Genius. Give out Simple membership trials like water, then as these trials reach their end, cancel the Simple membership tier.

Just shows that this entire thing was a sham to inflate the membership rolls to secure more VC funding.

What doesn't cease to amaze me is that VCs don't (do the due dilligence to) see past this sham, or worse yet they don't care. #bubble

Credit Cards / Re: Fraud Story... what would you do?

Its ridiulous that amex lets you use an AU without activating

What's rediculous is that these card issuers/networks are making so much money hand over fist, that they reduce friction (by not requiring card activation in your case, and not requiring much verification/security for all transactions, they charge merchants more for that), despite it costing them so many millions a year.

Lifetime benefits are long gone. I wonder if he had built in inflation protection.

Sure lucky his policy wasn't with Penn Treaty or any other company that buckled.

At first, companies adjusted policies because actual experience was very different than assumptions that went into the design of policies. When the low interest rates hit, companies just had to cut their losses and exit the business.

So people whose issuer went bust lost their policy? Did they somehow get their premiums back?

It is now: http://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/2017/08/22/redeem-qantas-points-el-al/

How many points NYC-TLV r/t? And same QY as LY or different when using QF points?

ETA, I now read that post and see that you can only redeem TLV to certain regions (Europe/Asia), North America isn't included.

How do I book this with Untied points? I have 5,000k, but I removed the AU and closing most of the credit line at the end of the month because I have $27,000k and want to avoid the 5/24.

Tell me right away, I'm booking my family for barmitvah and don't want to miss the deal!!!

Coincident with the eclipse, this afternoon is forecast to be the 7th highest electric load of the year for the PJM grid.

Less solar generation, higher consumption, or both?

It's a little more than $75, the tipping point is closer to $80. As long as you choose to prepay for duties, you'll be able to see if you've hit the tipping point

How does duties work (for Israel)?
