Not getting EM notifications to subscribed threads . Yahoo EM account.

  I have a Hodgpodge of free nights that are going tlo expire before end of 2016 .
 Have 2 free weekend nights at Hilton . Have 2 and will have very soon have  4 free nights at any Hyatt , 3 Marriot Cat 1-5 , 1 IHG free night and lots of Hilton and UR > Hyatt points to burn .

Want to plan something ex Athens in Early June for 6-19 days in Europe . Have been burning all my free nights at Park Hyatt Paris for the last four years and time for a change maybe ?
  Have  been to Vienna 3 times so the Park Hyatt that  is a no go also .
Read Milan is not worth more than 2 nights so that rules out that and a follow up to Rome which we have not been to for years now, the hilton there is outside the city

I have Hyatt and Hilton Diamond status
Thanks  .

 Every time I try to subscribe to a thread by clicking notify I get an
error  :

The database value you're trying to insert does not exist: current_member"


I applied for CITI HH reserve card last week and after calling in to push app, along they said they
called the mobile number listed on my app .

I have 5 other cards with them .

That's my NYC number and I am in Europe . They said they can't complete app till they speak to me on that telephone number .
Any workaround ? Also wanted to apply for another one after 8 days . What do I put for telephone number on the next app ?

Both cell and home number on vacation suspend and unable to even get messages on them .


Tech Talk / Outlook or something else
« on: April 23, 2015, 03:59:28 PM »
  I have Outlook 2007 that I used to sync all my contacts , calendar tasks memos etc with for years with my Blackberry Bold 9650 .

 Switched to Iphone 5s about 18 months ago, and have been schlepping Bold with me to Greece and back as a PDA to sync between 2-3 laptops via USB cable

  Did a one time , one way sync of all my contacts only  to Iphone , but don't want to load all the calendars etc on my Iphone that syncs with Ipad, unless someone thinks that's OK ?

 Feel lost without the Outlook Calendar but maybe its time I move on to newer technology. Don't like The Cloud but sync my contacts are being synced OTA between Iphone and Ipad so maybe I am in denial.
  Can someone point me in the right direction.

« on: November 24, 2013, 07:00:59 AM »
Coming back to NYC soon after using my unlocked sprint Iphone 5 S in GSM mode with local carrier for last 2 months.

Credit Cards / Chase fee waived gift cards
« on: September 13, 2013, 12:45:08 PM »
 Searched and could not find the thread. I bought 2 $500 Chase no fee GC and tried using in Post Office to purchase money orders like I believe I heard was possible.

Would not go through at PO. Tried full $500 and even tried $400 on each

 Went to Chase and they show $500 on each . Does PO block these , even though they say Debit card Visa on them

Tech Talk / T Mobile in NYC
« on: July 11, 2013, 11:25:32 AM »
 Just activated a pre-paid at T Mobile for my wife visiting from Europe.

They have the BB Q10 there in stock for $99. How do they stack up compared to Sprint Verizon service speeds etc in the NYC area?

Sprint wont have Q10 for another month , and my 2 year contract with them is over so?
Time for a change ?

On The Road / Marriot anniversary free night with canceled card
« on: May 15, 2013, 04:16:37 AM »
  I received my Marriot anniversary cat 1-5 cert effective  May 13 thru Nov 13. Question is if I cancel my card as AF is coming do I lose the cert as stated in the T & Cs

TC state card status must be open and not in default on anniversary date , which for the moment it is.

Up In The Air / DELTA BIZ first extra bag
« on: March 21, 2013, 07:39:49 PM »
Flying DL JFK ATH biz and after 2 free bags they say that 3 rd bag is $285 for non medallion

Coach gets 1 bag free @ 50 lbs and their first paid extra bag is $ 100 .

Does that sound fair to you guys?

I would think first paid bag, is first paid bag and why $4 LB  for Biz , versus $2 LB. for coach .

If anyone agrees that its wrong , suggestions. AMEX DL gold card does not give extra luggage
intercontinental flights.


Up In The Air / Cut finger onboard airplane

Hey guys ,
On a paid *A flight , I put my hand in the magazine pocket in the seatback of the next row, and noticed 10 minutes later blood on my hand . There was a sharp object there , that was not removed by the cleanup crew.

Reported it to FA who filled out a report and  even asked the  passenger seated across from me to be a witness .

What should I write them , either demanding, requesting some type of consideration or just Email them as to what happened , and see how they respond ?

Credit Cards / Amex getting desperate ?
« on: September 19, 2012, 07:16:01 PM »
  I have received 2 snail mail offers to join Amex for my Father and Nephew neither of which live at his address.

 I also got, for the first time in my life a Cold Call from Amex Open and the Gal did not even know my name . Plus my third  snail mail offer for a DBA Biz for 100K for Biz Plat card with $10k spend .

  Is Chase giving Amex a run for its money, and if so , are more promos and  bonuses coming down the pike ?

Credit Cards / Sort of targeted Amex card
« on: September 15, 2012, 05:38:21 PM »
I found an expired Amex 100k Plat offer in mailbox a few months ago when I got home from Europe . Tried to get Amex to upgrade me from Business Gold but no go.  Fast forward cancelled Biz Gold and just another 100K for $10K Amex MR Biz plat offer in the mail , not an upgrade !

 #1 This offer is addressed to a non registered DBA company that never really did any Biz , so is that a problem ?

#2 Could I ask them to retroactively upgrade the card I closed last month to this offer so no pull?

#3 Is a single 100K AMex Mr worth a pull.  Offer expires Oct 27th and my next appo would be around Nov 10th
