Re: HOT!! Hyatt Regency Paris Etoilele club room for 3k points plus 20 EUR a night! Can't argue with the price, but note that the hotel is rated 3/5 on both Yelp and Trip Advisor. Once you are paying for airfare and taking the time, might be worth to spend a few euro more and make a great trip out of it. Might not be the prevailing DDF mentality, but just my $.02 worth.

Re: Please help me understand/make a miles ticket Hello:

AF is a rewards partner of Flying Blue, which is actually the program which charges the least from North America to TLV, so kudos to you for realizing that.

A good thing about Flying Blue is that they are transfer partners of nearly every credit card program, so essentially you need to find a credit card, or a combination of them, which will award you as many points as you need. Keep in mind that 25k is for one way, so double it for a r/t for one person, etc...

At the moment, a "hot" credit card is the Chase Sapphire Reserve Card, as it includes may great perks, including 100,000 UR points upon meeting the spending threshold. You can also see if you can find a nice Amex Platinum offer. Keep in mind that these are considered luxury credit cards, and that not everyone will be approved. If you do choose to apply for this card, or any other card, please try to use Dan's referral link.

At the end of the billing cycle in which you have met your spending threshold, you will receive your point bonus, which you can then transfer to Flying Blue and book your tickets.

CAVEAT: Everything I just mentioned is only one of many options for you to get to Israel. As everyone here correctly mentioned, there is no substitute for educating yourself on this subject.

Good luck!

Selling two SUN expires July 14th (this Friday) for both. Would have to use tomorrow and Friday.

FYI: if the nights expire on Friday the 14th, then checkout has to be on that day, not Check-in.

Re: Marriott Certs Sale
no people are selling these certificates so the buyer can sponsor a hotel stay for the AH

I don't understand the need for sarcasm here. I think that the posted is just asking whether he can be listed as the primary guests, or if he has to be a second guest, in which case he is concerned about checking in without the AH. Seems like a valid question to me.

My answer to the original poster is it will most likely be impossible to get you listed as the primary guest. Some people claim that they can do it, but I wouldn't rely on it. The bottom line is that you have to be prepared to check-in as a second guests with a poker face. If you need everything to be by the books, then maybe these certificates aren't for you.

A reply by A3 on April 24, 2017 stated that the Turnberry is within the Eruv. Does anyone know whether or not that is still accurate?

To answer my own question in the event that it is helpful to others, it does appear that the Turnberry is covered by the eruv (although it is always a good idea to confirm prior to use).

Re: Marriott Certs Sale
Buying new Cat 5 7 night cert for $500 obo. I read the valuation above but I have the points to make the stay already and if not for the 7 nights, I would probably just stay 5 nights, pay for 4 with the 5th night free and then travel somewhere else. As much value as the cert could be worth, I just don't know many buyers who want to stay 7 nights straight in any one location especially at the lower category hotels.

If you have the points to stay 5 nights at a new cat 5 property, 140,000 to be precise, and that's your plan B, I imagine that you can find someone to trade your points for a new 7-night cat-5 certificate. That way, you get 7 nights, and they get a nice return on their certificate. Sounds like a win-win to me.

Naf, these conversations are pertinent to the subject of the thread, especially considering that the market is now in flux due to the merger. I think it's more reasonable for you to disable the notifications for a few weeks, than to expect everyone to cease from discussing the pricing on this thread.

5night cat5 - $980
5nights cat6 -$1,400

These prices don't make sense. It's cheaper to buy the points.

Re: Marriott Certs Sale
Selling the following:

1 X 5 nights Cat 5  ($850) Travel Package
1 X 5 nights Cat 6.  ($1,400) Travel Package

2 X 35K night certs ($180 each)

Expiration 2020 all from same account.

Will offer discount if purchase more than one item.

Marriott points trade for approximately $0.006 each (can be had at $0.0055 with patience), so the prices in points to stay for five nights at a category 5 and 6 is $840 and $1,200 respectively (remember that 5th night is free). On top of that, all certificates sell at a discount to their maximum points equivalent, being that points are more versatile and therefore valuable (with the points, I can choose to stay for weeks at a cat 1 or splurge on a cat 8, or even convert to airlines, while these certificates are fixed). So taking the preceding into account, how you are calculating your prices? I'm not trying to be mean, but sometimes I see prices on this board (and others) which just leave me scratching my head.

Re: ELEVTD/ Shoes/Coat Sale And Trading Master Thread
The Choos at least will easily sell for that on other sites, so no reason to go lower.

I haven't had luck selling them for that price on eBay or other sites.

I think that for $250+, most people would rather go to a department store and get the full experience, the option to return, guaranteed authenticity, etc... I also think that even though these items have MSRPs in the high hundreds, very few people actually pay that amount. And having a fancy label on the shoe does not make it desirable if the thing is hideous. I've seen some items on this thread that I'm frankly shocked made it out of the factory, let alone from a fancy designed.

August 01, 2019, 04:49:45 PM
Re: ELEVTD/ Shoes/Coat Sale And Trading Master Thread
Frankly if you want ďretailĒ or eBay prices for these items, donít bother posting. This is not the forum for that. People here know these were bought for $20. Itís reasonable to make some extra cash but people arenít looking to pay Ebay or retail prices on a DDF thread where everyone bought shoes for $20. Itís a waste of time for everyone.


The purchase price has nothing to do with the value. If I was offering a pair of shoes that you really liked for 70% MSRP, are you telling me that you wouldn't buy it simply because I paid $20 for them?

The real issue here is that most of these shoes are ugly, and a fancy label ain't gonna change that.

August 05, 2019, 02:41:24 PM
Re: Marriott Certs Sale
For those that bought certificates from fellow DDF users, has anyone got burnt?

Perhaps not getting a category or length of stay promised, or worse not getting anything at all/ hotel stay cancelled prior to arrival etc...

As far as getting the incorrect number of nights or category of hotel, that is very unlikely as the purchaser should receive an e-mail confirmation of the reservation.

As far as getting scammed, I can't speak in particular to this thread, but there certainly have been deals that have gone wrong elsewhere in the forum. And this is an especially bad item to be scammed with, as the last thing you want is to be left homeless at your destination with no option than to pay for a hotel at the last-minute rack rate. Therefore, it's always prudent to purchase only from seller's with a good reputation on the board, or confirm references.

Re: 5 Towns/Rockaway Master Thread Speaking of restaurants, I highly recommend the all-you-can-eat Wok Tov deal on Monday nights. If you order to go, they give you a very large container for the food and sides, and smaller container for sushi, and then a pint container for soup. All for $18.99. I have been known to reverse the plates (which is permissible), and essentially stuff 6 rolls of sushi into the large container, plus a generous serving of meat into the smaller container.

PS: I have no connection to Wok Tov other than liking greasy Chinese food.

That would be a great reason...theoretically..... but somehow I'm having difficulty believing that their intentions were so noble...

I find that a lot more likely than the alternative which is that everyone is spending their time just to spite someone that they don't even know.

But in general, people on this site tend to strongly dislike when someone tries to sell an item at a perceived unreasonable price. You will find that on many threads. It's nothing personal.

Re: New Coin Deal
New Coin Deal

Here is what PFS is offering
Deal Basics

On September 24th - at 12:00PM ET the US Mint will release a limited edition Palladium coin.

There is a limit of 1 coin per household.

The cost of each coin will be APPROXIMATELY $3,000.00. (The Mint will only be releasing the exact price on Wednesday the 23rd, and it will depend on the spot price of Palladium over the next few days.)

There will also be a $4.95 shipping charge.

You will have the box shipped to your own house or office and then ship them to PFS Buyers Club with a prepaid shipping label that we will provide for you.

PFS will be offering a commission of $50.05 per coin.

That's a lot to lay out for $50.

September 22, 2020, 05:03:38 PM
Re: New Coin Deal
Seems to me that it's not a good idea to commit the coin to anyone. There is 0% risk in purchasing the coin if it drops, as you can return the coin minus the shipping. There is a very big chance that this coin will appreciate as it did by the last Palladium coin released with a low mintage of 10k. You could read up on backing out over here

I agree. Worst case scenario, you lose the opportunity cost which is $50 and the opportunity for $3k in MR. And if the demand for this coin is anything like the previous coin, odds are that the potential profit will be much greater than that.

Re: NY Quarantine State Metrics
It means a total positive case load of 10 per 100K residents or more. As an example, it would mean 1,900+ positives in NY (a state of 19 million). NY had 1,150 positive test yesterday, so they would not fit the bill currently.

This is distinct from the positivity rate.

Thanks for the explanation.

But then whatís the point of the 10% figure? It seems to me that if a state is good with the 10 per 100k, then theyíre definitely good with the 10%?

And according to the NYT ( NY has 50 cases per 100k in the past 7 days? Doesnít NY then run afoul if itís own regulations?

October 12, 2020, 10:39:24 PM
Re: NY Quarantine State Metrics
Positivity rate is measured as a percentage of tests conducted. Total cases is irrespective of how many tests were conducted. They are separate measures that should be used in conjunction.
NY has 50 cases per 100K cumulatively in the past 7 days, not as a single day (7 day rolling) average.

OK, thank you. I think Iíve got it now.

Re: US Mint Coins For Sale (Individuals only) If more than one person on this thread end up getting the gold coin, I'll be very surprised. Previous coins with mintings much higher than 1945 were very difficult.

Re: NJ only:Chevy Bolt (electric car) $55/$72 a month 36/10k miles with one pay
So basically youíre talking an extra 600 to more like 800 to get a reasonable overnight charge. You are starting to approach the price of some of the standard car cheaper lease deals with more hassle.

Even at $800 over 36 months you're talking about an extra $22 a month, so not a big difference. Plus, this is now a capital improvement to your house and can continue to be used after the lease expires if the lessor obtains any EVs in the future (which seems likely for everyone eventually).

November 26, 2020, 12:30:03 PM
Re: Marriott Certs Sale Sounds to me like but the resolution here depends on whether the goods being sold here are certificates or stays. In these transactions, as the topic clearly states, the sale is for certificates, which may provide, but does not guaranty, access to a room at the property. The sale is not for a stay at the property, as if the buyer would be booking directly on It seems that the buyer received the certificate (which the seller applied towards a reservation), so strictly speaking, I probably agree with Leeboy. That being said, to Yehudaa's point, most buyers here are users and not brokers, so from a PR perspective, it's probably worthwhile to make shalom with the buyer.

Re: Hyatt Awards And Upgrades Master Thread
Subsidized Globalist stays before Feb 28.

I'll pay you 15% of the base price of your stay, or $30/night, your choice. So if your stay is $300, you'd get $45 from me. Even if your stay is only $80, you'd get a minimum of $30 per night.

And you get Globalist status for your stay. I can throw in a suite upgrade certificate for any bookings of 5+ nights or >$1k.

At the time of this writing, my 15% offer is the highest in this thread. I've got many Hyatt transactions of this type over in the Reddit marketplace, please let me know if you'd like references.

Pretty sure that there is someone here offering $40 per night.

ISO apt. in Jerusalem for Sukkot- trading for stay in Disney, Atlantis, HI, etc. I am considering spending Sukkot in Jerusalem and am looking for a nice apartment. I own a few timeshares, so instead of offering cash, I can provide a much better value by offering stays at luxury  and/or very desirable properties. Your stay does not need to be over Sukkot obviously, but can be over Thanksgiving, Yeshiva break, or any other time you want.

Some of the properties available include Disney World Deluxe resorts (Animal Kingdom, Boardwalk Villas), the Atlantis in the Bahamas, the Westin in St. Johns (USVI) or Los Cabos, or several locations in HI. There are also properties in Miami, Key West, California, and literally all over the world. These units also vary in size, and can include 1,2 or 3 bedrooms apartments with a full kitchen, which is perfect for kosher traveling and can sometimes save thousands of dollars over a vacation. Depending on the size of the units and the dates, a single night at some of these resorts can cost upwards of $500 per night.

Please let me know if you are interested.
