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!

Re: Hyatt Awards And Upgrades Master Thread
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.

Re: Reviews on Amazon.com What could possibly be done, and which Amazon itself does, is offer free products in exchange for HONEST reviews.

Re: South Florida Master Thread
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.
