Re: Chase Sapphire Reserve
I'm way over 5/24
Was pre-approved (in branch) applied in branch on 08/30, "you'll have an answer in writing within two weeks".
Called recon - same answer.
Calling every day to hear the same thing on the cc status on the phone.
Today, after 5 days still no approval, does it mean declined?

From the Chase Reconsideration Thread Wiki.
If you hear:
This application is being reviewed. You will be notified in writing of our decision, in approximately 2 weeks
It's pending.
If you hear:
This application is being reviewed. You will be notified in writing, within 7 to 10 business days, of our decision
It's been declined.

So you are alright for now.

Re: Chase Sapphire Reserve
will any $ amount pull the $300 travel credit or its a $ for an $
CMIIW You don't need to spend the $300 in one transaction, it is cumulative, but you do need to spend $300 to get $300

Re: Chase Shutdown w/o Notice
Chase gave wife and me the axe without notice on the 11/29. All 7 ccs including Ink. Still have checking accounts intact but only until 12/28. Thank goodness I was still able to transfer UR out. Anyone have any pointers when contacting exec office or if there is even a way to get reinstated?  I was told to contact them.  I know a Chase banker who gave me the direct line, and she spoke to compliance for me.  They say there is nothing that we can do, and there are no details to why we were shutdown, but I wonder if anybody here has gotten out of it.  I thought they were supposed to do a financial review before doing anything.  Member since 2006.  Help!

I have a bucketful of IHG points expiring in a couple months.
What's easiest/best way to start the clock & extend them?
Book and cancel.

December 07, 2016, 01:16:51 AM

Note that IHG points require activity every 12 months, but you can just redeem for a hotel award and cancel it to extend the expiration for another 12 months.

Master Thread of Gift Card Threads It's about time we have a stickied thread with links to all the Buy/Sell Gift Card threads. Check Wiki for links to threads.

It will save time and (hopefully) prevent people from opening a ton of new threads or posting in the wrong thread.
A lot of stores have multiple threads but no Master Thread, those should be combined and renamed.

Re: Master Thread of Gift Card Threads Thanks all.

Thanks good concept, I am sure there are many more threads.
I started with the most popular and most recently used. When I have some time I'll add more.

Everyone can feel free to add more threads to the wiki. If there is no Master Thread for a store try to link the longest or the best named thread for that store.

least we can do
The most you can do is drum up enough interest to get this stickied.

Re: Master Thread of Gift Card Threads Poll added.

The point of this thread is to be able to find any GC thread quickly. For that to happen we need this to be stickied. If you like this thread please vote and add your comments to help make this happen.

This thread should also help cut down on the excessive thread creation, where we have dozens of threads for many stores.

Re: World Baseball Classic
So now that Japan won. Cuba has to beet Netherland, and Israel Japan
If Israel loses but Cuba wins Israel should still have a chance to make the tiebreaker, no?

Right now Israel gave up the most runs but depending on the outcome of the final two games that may change.
The three-way tiebreaker calls for the two teams with the lower runs allowed per defensive inning play a head-to-head tiebreaker game while the other is eliminated.

Re: World Baseball Classic
If Israel wins there will be a 3-way tie breaker with Japan and whoever wins Cuba/Netherlands. They need not only win but run up the score if they can or hope for like a 12-10 win by whoever wins the other game.
Cuba is 0-2 so if Israel wins and Cuba wins there is no tiebreaker.
If Israel wins and Netherlands win there will be a tiebreaker between Japan, Netherlands and Israel.
If Israel loses and Netherlands loses there will be a tiebreaker between Cuba, Netherlands and Israel.

They want to score alot but not allow Japan to score too many runs.

Re: Selling on Amazon Master Thread
Do asins match all upcs? So if two ppl sell same UPC will the asins match?

Also, do skus randomly assigned by Amazon match asins, or are they totally random? (So if two sellers sell same UPC, and therefore have same Asin, would they also have the same sku? Or is it randomly assigned per listing.)
An ASIN (Amazon Standard Identification Number) is the number that differentiates between Amazon listings so if  there are multiple listings for the same item each one would have a different ASIN but they would all have the same UPC.

A SKU is solely to track  your inventory so you can name or number it in a way that will help you keep records or just let them give you a random one. I doubt they give everyone under the same ASIN the same SKU as there would be no reason to and they probably just randomly generate them each time.

Re: Amex Platinum Master Thread
Why would someone open the card aside for the sign up bonus.
 Assuming your taking advantage of the flights booked through chase, so now why would you book a flight for 1.5 when you can get the same spending with a value of 2.25?
Am I missing something here?
(and sorry for hijacking this thread with chase, after all chase and amex have lots of similarities.)
It is a 2 step process.
First you earn points with any UR card. For everyday spend you would use the Freedom Unlimited which earns you 1.5 ppd.
Then you transfer those points to the Reserve card. When you redeem with the Reserve card you get 1.5 cents per point. This means that if you find a $150 flight you will only have to use 10000 points.  So you are only getting 2.25 cents per dollar spent if you have both the freedom unlimited and the sapphire reserve.

March 20, 2017, 12:22:38 AM
Re: Amex Platinum Master Thread
That I understood, but what threw me off was the new understanding that you only get the value of 1.5CPP while using it for flights.(And that means it makes no difference how you did the spending whether with the freedom or CSP or the CSR?) only the FU would make a difference with normal spending?
You always want to spend on the card that gives you the most ppd for that transaction. So freedom for 5* categories, reserve for travel and dining, freedom unlimited for anything you can't get more than 1.5 ppd on a different card.
Then you transfer all points to the reserve and redeem them for 1.5 cents per point.

Re: A Getaway to Paradise - as2's Private Island Escape Nice! Thanks for not making us wait between segments.

I am more of a “relaxing” vacation type of guy, rather than the action packed type, so an island of my own to vegetate on for a few days was super appealing.
With that plane ride it looks like you got some action on this trip after all.

Re: Adobe Creative Cloud
I would like to install Adobe Acrobat Pro on a computer without paying $14.99 a month (a crazy price for just one program!), Is it still possible to buy for a one-time cost like it used to be?

Just search for Acrobat Pro 2017. If you want to buy it direct from Adobe it can be found here.

Re: Riddles!
Simchas torah does require 3 seforim anywhere, no? V'Zos, Maftir, and Bereishis? How is EY different in that regard - an no, I didn't include it in my chesbon.

You asked about Shabbos morning.

In how many situations do we take out 3 sifrei torah on shabbos morning, and what is the maximum number of times that it can happen in a given calendar year?

Only in Eretz Yisroel can Simchas Torah be on Shabbos.

I give up.
Look again at the edited post.
One doesn't have to be a chess master to know that it's impossible.
Impossible for white to win in one move. (White will win, eventually)

It doesn't say anything about one move.

That being said, this is not a difficult problem.
