Title: PGFHGS- Stupid moves only to Regret
Post by: yitzyul on July 11, 2016, 04:38:57 PM
Last night found 7 Business Saver awards on the exact PS flight (hard to find)  I needed. Decided to wait one night for pints to transfer to SQ instead of using full United.
Today AM points transferred,no availability and coach fares skyrocketed:(

I'm not sure thats a good example of PGFHGS. But I hear your frustration.  Whats the price difference between booking with UA as opposed to SQ?

Next time call SQ to hold the seats for you, and have it ticketed when points transfer.

I called 5x and they kept on saying they couldn't hold it

I've heard of situations where *A partner seats were held and they were no longer available even before the hold expired.

Yup, the partner can cancel the hold, but doesn't happen often AFAIK.

Oh, I like this thread. Can I say one?

I did the Starbucks method tonight... and I am feeling kind of bad about it.

What you do is order two vente Americanos. One, you throw in the barrista's face while it is scalding, and the other you grab and run out the door with.
