Re: Need help finding a ticket? Post here! Award ticket edition (Master thread)
One way/Round-trip: RT
Non-stop/Maximum stops/Any: Up 1 one stop
From: JFK
To: TLV
Departure dates: 7/23 -7/26
Return dates: 8/5 -8/8
Class: Any
Seats: 2

Unfortunately I haven't been in Israel in 30 years, but finally going for my honeymoon. In the past 10 years I have collected 250k Amex points, 115k Chase points and 180k SPG points. I also need to use some of these to book the hotel rooms.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)
Outbound is available on United for 42.5k each so you could either transfer 85k Chase UR to United direct or transfer 90k SPG to 270k Marriott  and buy a Marriott Travel package which will give you 132k United and a 7 night hotel stay at Marriott Category 1-5.

Return does not have any saver Y availability on United. Only day that has any saver is 8/5 in J on OS (Austrian) with a stop in Vienna. That would be 85k each. So if you transfer your remaining 90k SPG ang get another package you will have 132k plus the remaining 47k United and you have your trip covered. You can sell the 7 night certificates for $275 each (or more) and book an AirBnB or book through Amex Travel portal.

Hope that helped.

Re: Have you switched from Android to iPhone? For years I wouldn't consider touching an Apple product. It was Palm -> BB -> Android, until I was forced to switch to iOS if I wanted mobile access to corporate email. There are lots of frustrating things with the iPhone, but the build quality is by far superior to anything Samsung put out.

I actually switched to the LG VN220 several months ago, and keep my old iPhone to use with wifi (or my LG as a Hotspot) whenever I need something that requires a smartphone.

While iOS can be frustrating and annoying for tech savvy users, I can definitely see reasons for it, and I think it is overall tighter and safer than almost any android build. That being said, my greatest current frustration is the fact that since the corporate IT department decided to switch their MDM provider to Microsoft Intune, SwiftKey (which is superior to iOS keyboards in almost every aspect) gets disabled when using built-in Contacts or email apps. Even worse is the fact that the forced switching to iOS keyboards whenever using contacts, messes up the keyboard once you want to use an app that is allowed to use SwiftKey.

Oh. And did I ever mention that I hate Steve Jobs for taking away physical keyboards and buttons?

Re: How many sheitals does your wife have?
Well, in a professional setting, you usually have air conditioning so the heat and humidity shouldn't play that much of an impact. And perhaps the WW isn't overrated when you can wear it to work, at a job that requires hair to be pulled back, and that often requires actual running around / sweating.
If my job required running around and sweating, I'd get a new job before I'd get a new wig.
