if I have it British Airway miles expiring in the next month or two what's the best way to keep it active? If I have a friend of mine which took out a car rental can I use his rental to renew my mileage on my British Airways account?

 Anyone know if shopping through ba.com works for extending your miles?

You can try a car rental. Otherwise, just book a random domestic award ticket and pay $5.60 in taxes, and cancel after 24 hours. The miles will be redeposited minus $5.60, and the expiration will be extended.

Used them for a while. They were doing a decent job and were priced well (8 shekel a shirt boxed or hanger), but they lost some clothing of mine and wouldn't take responsibility, so I was out.

Davidka is real good, but expensive as hell.
If you are in Kollel or in Yeshiva, Zohar (on Strauss) gives a decent price and is pretty good.

I just don’t want them to ruin my new Italian suit. Would that potentially be a problem?

Risk definitely exists. Buy insurance that will give you adequate coverage in case of provider insolvency.

Thanks — any recommendations?

Davidka is the best AFAIK. Their prices are crazy though.

How much?

Any cheaper recommendations?
