I noticed that on my AMEX bill it also notified of an upcoming annual charge, it may have to do with the new laws.

- Got two United 65K offers in the mail. One for my wife, one for me. We just closed them in June to churn. Great timing. (They even printed your current miles balance in the mailer and your potential miles balance after applying for the 65K offer.)
I just opened up a umpe and then received the 65k offer in the mail. Will they match it?

  sure. Chances are they would have matched it without the mailer.

Discussed a gazillion times, it's a scam (they jack your rates up). If you can cancel ASAP when the points post and your energy bill is low, it might be worth it for 20k AA.

Its about 120 month. X 2 before I cancel supposed to get 25 K IF have united card. How much do they jack it? Worth it for 25 K.
Also prepaid con ED 1k to make a spend. Will they send me a check. If so would have prepaid 2-3 K if that would work

1. How much do you value a UA mile at?
2. I suspect con ed will work.
3. If the signup/spend bonus posts before the credit comes from ConEd (assuming they insist on crediting your CC) your bonus won't get clawed back (though the 1k-3k standard spend points might).

#1 a penny but zero is better  :)

# 2 Don't even remember which card I used ? LOL  might have closed that card already. Anyone ever do this and get a check from Con Ed ?

#3 Did anyone ever get the 20 or 25K points .

# 4 How much do they jack up the bill % wise ?

1. I meant AA! If an AA mile is worthless to you, then don't bother. Even at 1cpm it's not worth the hassle IMHO.

3. If you go through the motions I'm sure you'll get it.

4. I don't think that's known, probably keeps changing.

There is a United plus mileage bonus promo for 25 K if you have the UA MPE card which I have . I will have to give it some thought. 

Lots of moving parts

1.The blue sky card.

Can the points be transferred to united?

2.Capitol one, venture one.

Based on what Dan says about the 3 hard pull guess it's not worth it!

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Metal Collar stays (from ebay - thanks Helpme! - I'm sick of plastic one bending and breaking!

Eddie Bauer Car Sunshade (also from ebay :)  ) . I've tried a bunch of different ones and this one stays on the best!
