Deals/Deal Requests / Re: Target: $20 off $100 on Monday December 11

It would be nice if it included gift cards, but I suspect that's not the case.
No, but if you use gift card purchased last Sunday the Savings are effectively stacked.

Credit Cards / Re: Purchases That Work For Amex Platinum Travel Credit

Why wouldnt they?
Just providing a data point, mostly in regard to the timing of posting. The T+C indicate it shouldn't work:
"Good to Know
This benefit doesn't offer credit toward airline tickets, mileage points purchases or mileage points transfer fees, gift cards, upgrades, duty–free purchases, or award tickets."

2 separate accounts? What's the chidush?
$209 was credited?


Just pointing out that the purchase could be for any traveler; doesn't need to be for the cardmember.  Not a big deal. Only $200 was credited, as expected.

Data Point for UA:
Purchased EC+ on the EWR-TLV leg with one CC (same name as traveler) for $209.
Purchased EC+ on the TLV-EWR leg with different CC (his mother's name) for $199.
Both credited about 3-4 days after the charge.

Looks a nice offer if there are any cheap E+ seats.
Now go charge your phone!

But daughter would need to take the flight, not just buy E+. I don’t see how it is a good deal.

No go on two accounts, but my wife got this:

Book and take a trip in United Economy 1 time by January 12, 2018 to get 14,000 bonus award miles.

Flight must cost as least $350.
I like your wife’s deal better than my daughter’s.

Has anyone been able to book a revenue stay at the TRYP Jerusalem with Visa Checkout? I don't see it a payment option.

The Ink's bonus is the highest public UR offer at the moment, making it lucrative. The CSR is a great option for travel and dining at 3ppd, unless you have a 5x card. The 1.5 value alone is a great reason to have it, but you can still get a solid 1.25 with the ink or SP. When you combine it with the Freedom and/or FU it's great also.
Nice.
Am I correct that I should be able to get InkPreferred first and then subsequently get the CSR, since the Ink is a business card and doesn’t count toward 5/24.  Couldn’t get CSR first, because that would be my 5th. Is that correct thinking?

There's no advantage to now or after the new year, the credit goes by cardmember year now. I wouldn't count on the SUB going up any time soon. If I were you I would get the Ink preferred first though.

The credit is per card member year, so no real advantage to signing up asap. IMO the bonus isn't going up anytime soon, but I could be wrong. Depending on how yo u will utilize this card, it may be worth it not to wait.

Thank you both.
Ink Preferred...because of 80k signup bonus, or is there some other reason?
I already have InkPlus for 5x at office stores.
I was thinking the CSR would be useful for the 1.5 hybrid points and the travel protections.  Would appreciate opinions here.

I am now at 4/24 (if you discount the AU's, which I appreciate will require HUCA).
I would like to apply for the CSR.

If I understand the current rules, there is no significant advantage to applying and getting approved before the end of the calendar year. Is that correct?

Sign-up bonus is currently 50K.  Should I wait for a higher sign-up bonus?

Economy plus is not an upgrade. It's available as a separate purchase. If booking with Amex it's considered a regular ticket just like any other travel agent
Nice. Thanks so much. So I should be able to purchase E+ separately on United.com, presumably under manage my booking, right?

If I book a United flight (e.g., BOS-EWR-TLV) on Amex with Biz Plat points, will I be able to pay cash (presumably on the United website after ticketing) to upgrade from Y to EconomyPlus? Or, do they only offer that upgrade "bundle" when you purchase ticket on United.com?
