Re: Chase Sapphire Reserve
Should be the same in branch or online, unless you're preaprroved. I'd apply through an affiliate link.

why affiliate link?

do you think there is anyway applying through an online affiliate links hurts your chances of getting approved because they see it as  more likely coming from "churners"?

Re: BOFA Alaska Airlines Visa Master Thread
I just did 😏. Now sure why you would ask a question, and then when someone answers, question said answer.

maybe he wants to point to something in writing in case BOA gives him problems

Re: San Diego Master Thread I didn't know that Southwest now runs seasonal nonstop flights SAN-EWR!  see sample itinerary below.

That makes it now 3 nonstop options from SAN-EWR and vice versa.  Just last year there was only United

Re: Chase Freedom Master Thread
take your wife to dinner at reserve cut that should take care of most of it
deal we will use your credit card so you can get the points and I will pay you back

August 17, 2017, 05:36:02 PM
How is it different than any other flight deal?
some fare error deals you can book with points and some not? for example at least with amex the airline matters.  Also curious if every error fare shows up on chase and amex travel site with the corresponding points low amount of points?

and anyway if I remember correctly DDMS did at least in the past give instructions how to book with CSR points and Amex plat points
for a DDMS post  think a lot readers might not be remember this option nor know the nuances of booking with points and might assume incorrectly that you cannot book this error deal with points.

anyway not even sure if many booked this deal with points does not seem so

Re: Infant Travel I thought the day of getting a bassinet seat for a lap infant were over ever since most of those seats all became economy plus seats but today a United rep booked me and DW in economy plus EWR-TLV bassinet seats because she said we were travelling with an infant and we did not have to pay any upgrade fee to economy plus; she said she waived approx $450 :)  She said you are entitled to this if you are travelling with a child up to 24 months!

FYI a local travel agent said that airlines do this for infants up to 9 months old; not sure where she got the 9 month age policy

Re: Israel Hotels Master Thread So I booked 2 rooms both with points one day in CP dead sea and the other day Renaissance in TV.

 In one room will be me, DW and infant and the other room Israeli couple(family).

1. Any chance they will try and assess a VAT tax on the Israeli couple's room?

2. In Israel I are they makpid on bringing in more than 2-3 people in a room?  do they actively look for that if lets say the Israeli couple want to bring their 2-3 minor children?

Re: Orlando Master Thread
I just got a letter from Sheraton - invited to Vistana Villages Orlando for 5 days/4 nights for $269. I called and they said no speeches or meetings or anything (like I had at the Westin). Just stay and enjoy and decide when you're home if you're interested. Anyone know about this offer? Anyone get it. Use it? Not knowing Orlando, what's the food situation? I have to use it by December but have to let them know by March 27. Any info? Thanks

How does one get this offer?

Re: Chase sapphire preferred 80,000 UR sign up bonus I don't know what I would do if I was blogger but can a case be made that a blogger should mention in branch option in its main post as well to give its readers a choice which way they would like to apply.  Although the difference may be small to most some people may prefer the AF waived than the grocery credit for different reasons etc...

I totally hear the side of helping the blogger especially in a case like Dan and JJ who do so much for us thank you again!

The other side though is that the reader maybe should have final say after all options are laid out on the table by the bloggers as at the end of the day Panassah min Hashamayim so I dont think the blogger can go wrong here.  It only reinforces his faith and being completely up front?  But maybe I am biased as well coming from the reader's perspective but not sure just laying it out.

Re: Chase sapphire preferred 80,000 UR sign up bonus
Spoken like people who aren't aware of the contracts, requirements, and compliance in place, never mind the need for the business to pay the bills and survive.

Are you contractually or otherwise prohibited from mentioning in branch option? Otherwise you are right I have no idea what you have to navigate

as to your second point again I am not sure what I would do in your situation and I may also have done as you did; however I am not saying you should always take this route of laying out all options when their is profit to be made.  I am saying in these situations where the offers differ should you lay it all out as again bills and survival we all or most of us here believe come from Hashem.  I just don't see how you can go wrong here by laying out all the options in these specific situations.  I cant imagine globally you would be affected if parnassah is min hashayaim by going the extra mile.  You would stand only to gain from your readers and in shamayim.

Re: Chase sapphire preferred 80,000 UR sign up bonus
Very impressed that you are willing to discuss these things, even though people are attacking and unaware of what goes on behind the scenes.

If you notice our comments we have been very respectful and far from "attacking" but like they say  just calling it as I see it.  Maybe be totally wrong but maybe not
