You don't get national executive status with the CSR. You can use the infinite code for perks when renting, but it doesn't give you status.

-750000. Just go to the benefits page and follow the link.

Just curious on what card are you guys getting the free GE application from? Thanks ..
 Would love to apply for a bunch of family members.

Just an FYI. If you apply for Nexus, Family members under 18 are free + you have the added benefit of Nexus.

Is it enoying?

I had the S7 edge and now I have them S8. It's like sky and earth difference. The S7 used to freeze away my he S8 is such a great phone ( I already have an invisible crack though from a serious fall).

For #1 you can buy on eBay 5 PC keys for pennies. Have very good experience with that UK seller on there, very prompt.

I use my GE card in Nexus land and it works

GE in a US Nexus lane works. Not when entering into Canada.

Good luck, just do not do $10000 in MS.

I do REAL spend, never did MS.

Applied, I hope I get the $1K. Got a 30K credit line. Thanks

While I wholeheartedly agree that having hilchos yichud helps avoid many negative situations there are plenty of men (though it may not seem like it these days)  who don't follow hilchos yichud or halacha and still act with the proper respect and appropriately towards the opposite sex.

Chazal say אין אפוטרופוס לעריות . You can't be smarter than חז"ל, and you know it well being that you are a man. If you want to tell me otherwise, I have a bridge to sell.

Anyone know if toggle mobile works in Austria?

It surely works but there is roaming charges, which come out very expensive when calling US. Local calls and  calls are very low.

Iv'e had the the CSR since January 2017 and added my wife as an authorized user. Our fee, therefore, is $525 per year.  Shortly after the we got the card we used the $300 travel credit and TSA Pre-check credit. We spend around $25,000 a year on the card and about $2000 per year on travel dining, so throughout the past year we have accumulated 30,000 points.  When we do travel, it is usually on Southwest, which means that we are traveling through smaller airports that do not have lounges. Do you think that it is worth it to keep the card open for next year?

Waste paying for the authorized user. Just ask for a plastic version and have your wife use that. It works for me.

I sold in a stretch of 1 year over 1 million AA miles and I had no audit. I know I'm lucky.

Nah, word on the street is Lucky stole from United and they told him never to step on a United plane

They already forgave him. He did fly United many times recently.
