Credit Cards / Re: Denied 80,000 points Marriott card bonus - need advice

Two things you aren't mentioning which seem to be important here.
1. When were you approved for the card? IINM Chase often gives 105 days from card approval to meet spend requirements, in which case, Jan 12th may actually not be a unique exception.
2. When looking at your charges now, is there $3k of charges dated by 01/12? Even charges which were pending and only posted later should go back to the original date once posted according to a previous poster.

◦Sometimes websites wonít allow infants or kids to book a ticket. The date of birth on a ticket isnít actually matched up with anything, so Iíve been known to add 100 years to the age of my kids when I need to and Iíve never run into any issues.
I flew on AA with a BA Avios ticket and TSA pre wouldn't show because the DOBs didn't match till I updated the DOB.

Wow. That's a lot of effort to explain a joke.

Though several of those seem to be missing the full joke explanation.
DWI seems like a play on BWI. YYZ sounds like it should be fake yet it's real, ORD because those letters are actually in Orlando, etc.
And I'm still trying to figure out how MSY refers to the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.

Class: Y!

GS Manager and Hamasbia Mashgiach came to my seat to call me to the J Galley.
"Hi is it your Birthday" (someone must have told them, Wife claims no responsibility)
"We have these 2 platters of fruit and cakes for you to enjoy, feel free to let us know when you want them"
No Kosher tape or anything, guess that's why the Mashgiach came on board?
Didn't know they have an on-site mashgiach.
Where does he usually work? On the planes? In the airport?

Bought a fully refundable ticket and then upgraded one leg to E comfort. I'm trying to cancel now but they'll only refund the flight and not the upgrade.
Worth calling in?

Mentioned the attached, and how (by extension) everyone is actually a Lubavitcher, it is just בהעלם.😉
I'd venture to say that by the time I got there the conversation had evolved quiet a bit.

I'm I the only one who thought about the suggested DD logo when I saw the PayPal card? Not sure why I don't think that every time I see PayPal.

Shabbos DO?
Can't imagine ExGingi's Farbrengen looking like your typical DO but I'll probably be there for a bit.

And I don't know of anyone that calls it Chaim Tashkenter's minyan. None of his kids daven there (though grandchildren and great grandchildren occasionally do).
Didn't they pay to have the room refurbished?
Holtzberg doesn't daven there either but that makes no difference to anyone.

Anyone needing Shabbos accommodations in is CH is welcome to PM.


Anyone coming from Brooklyn to NYC before 8 pm today and bring a small pkg?
Does Brooklyn mean Flatbush?
Does NYC mean Manhattan?

I'm not able to assist, I just couldn't resist commenting.

Just to put in my 2Ę.

1. At this point, if he wouldn't make a statement similar to the one he made today he would me giving into (and encouraging) terror.
2. A stronger and more stable Israel = a stronger and more stable Middle East
