Re: Chase Sapphire Reserve
Ok - mind blown. I thought that business cards would show in credit reports, but credit utilization on them was not?

For the majority of business cards, they only appear if you default.

Re: Chase Sapphire Reserve
Well, lucky is not a Rayeh.....

There were multiple reports here and on other places, people being CPC and if/when they were denied, the CPC banker calling hit a brick wall. Much more reports of it not helping than helping.
You have no idea what you're talking about.
Lots of reports of Recon reps only working with the person because they're CPC.

and all the pre-approvals? Just seems deceptive if you are writing a definitive statement to not hold by it.

I assume in branch pre-approvals won't have this language on them. Kind of like how some AmEx targeted offers don't have their limiting language. Should make it easier to know with Chase!

Hey, @doctorofcredit, we added a 'like' system over here. You gotta try to get likes so people will know you are reliable.

Thanks for the tip, I will add a desperate plea for likes at the end of each post.

Re: Montreal Master Thread Arrived to YUL yesterday from NY by plane. The line to clear customs was over 2 hours! People around me who fly there every day said they have never seen something like that. The line started a half a mile back before the stairs which take you down to customs!

If your ever in such a mess, here is the way around.

On the side of the hallway where everyone was waiting there is a narrow empty lane designated for "connecting flights passengers" as someone knowing that even connecting pax have to clear customs and pick up bags and recheck, I just took that lane, they asked me where my BP is I just told them I'm picking it up at check in, I told them I have 10pm flight to Paris. And yala, was out in 10 minutes.

Re: Montreal Master Thread
Did you have a connection?  If you were NOT connecting, did you falsely tell someone you WERE connecting, and then you jumped in front of everyone else?? Did you have a medical emergency?
Yes,  indeed.  I falsely said I am connecting, though I didn't jump on anyone as you understand. Rather I just went to the connections lane and waited patiently there.

I see you have a desire to know for what I went. I went to a wedding. And I wanted to be there on time,

Re: Silent Killer @hvaces42

If you don't get poetry than just say that, you are sounding really silly to me.

It's a beautiful poem, and yes I love poetry so maybe I'm biased. The beauty is that is is open to interpretation and allows the reader to take it to heart or not depending on how they read it and understand it, it can be much more powerful than a simply stated idea.

Before I give my interpretation I just want to say that I don't understand how you can say words words words when the main call for action that you are suggesting here is education, and how exactly is education done? "Words words words."

Words are one of the most powerful forces in the world, you will never get anywhere without using them, insulting them doesn't sound very smart to me.

Anyway with that said the poem to me is coming from a girl who is living in a similar situation, the author had a tough childhood with no one to look up to. She is an adult now and can do what she wants, many of her friends from similar backgrounds take heroin and claim that it saved them and changed their life from miserable to wonderful. Yet she has held off the easy path and been working hard to avoid it.

Being that she never had a good role model to look up to she and her friends see heroin as a heroine that can take them out of their sad life and make them instantly happy.

After a few friends being killed from heroin she is realizing it's not time to blame the person or say how good a person they were, it's time to realize that heroin is no heroine at all but rather a filthy lying scumbag who just like an abusive husband, promises to give her the world but really all it does it destroy it.

I think for someone who was considering heroin this can be very educational and a good read.

Hope that makes some sense no time to look over what I wrote atm.

Great Circle Mapper Tips and Tricks Master Thread We all know and love GCMap, but based on some recent PMs even some seasoned DDF'ers are not overly familiar with the tool and how it works. I figured I'll put together a list of tips and tricks, as well as some advanced things that I've learned over the years that aren't documented anywhere (including GCMap's own knowledge base).

This thread could also serve as a place to ask any questions about the GCMapper and the like.

- To show the maps here on DDF, right-click on the map and choose Copy image address (Or whatever your browser's equivalent is). Paste the resulting link in to your post as an image.

Update early 2021: This does not currently work due to an HTTPS issue. For now, click the image and save it, then upload to an image host and paste the link as an image.

- The top search bar is useful for basic routes or searches. Start there, then use the field under Map Controls > Paths on the bottom of the page to do advanced things.

- To change the color of a route, put color:yellow, before your route. It doesn't have to be yellow, obviously; you could substitute that with a different color if you want. The color will remain the same for subsequent routes unless a different color is specified.

Code: [Select]
color:yellow,jfk-lax-sin-syd, color:blue, ewr-ord-lax-syd

- To see different routes originating from one airport, you don't have to put in all the complete routes (i.e. jfk-lax,jfk-sfo, etc.). Instead, you could just put the origin and separate the destinations with a slash.

Code: [Select]

- If your map looks weird, try changing your projection from the default to Rectangular (Plate Carrée). This option is found under Map Controls > Map Conf > Projection.

The first map here automatically gave me a polar projection, which is fine in some cases but doesn't really give you a good sense of place. Manually choosing Rectangular gave me the second map:

- GCMap only gives the option to zoom out of a map, not in. To get around this and only show a portion of your map, use o:noext, before the route that you want to cut off.

For example, a regular map doesn't show the European flights of this trip as well as I'd like, since it's a very small part of the full map.

Code: [Select]
Color:yellow, Cle-ewr-osl,osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-cdg-ewr-cle, ewr-osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-cdg-ewr, ewr-lhr-osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-zrh-ewr, lhr-osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-lhr, tlv-muc-osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-bru-tlv

Adding o:noext, before the segments I don't want to show fully gives me exactly what I wanted:

Code: [Select]
Color:yellow,o:noext,Cle-ewr-osl, osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-cdg,o:noext,cdg-ewr-cle,o:noext,ewr-osl,osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-cdg,o:noext,cdg-ewr,o:noext,ewr-lhr,lhr-osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-zrh,o:noext,zrh-ewr,lhr-osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-lhr,o:noext,tlv-muc,muc-osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-bru,o:noext,bru-tlv,o:noext,binp

Of course, I could just drop the long hauls from the map, but that would give me no context; it just looks like a flying spree out of Oslo, like so:

Code: [Select]
Color:yellow, osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-cdg, osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-cdg, lhr-osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-zrh, lhr-osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-lhr, muc-osl-tos-lyr-osl-trd-boo-lkn-boo-osl-bru

- Entering an airport code instead of a route gives you a point on the map. This could be very useful when planning a trip to an out of the way place.

For example, planning a trip to Greenland drove me crazy. For starters, the airport codes are incredibly unintuative, having nothing to do with the actual airport name. That was compounded by the fact that these names aren't pronounceable in the first place ;D. Add to that the fact that the service to these airports vary wildly, and I needed a better way to start planning this.

Enter GCMap. I used points for each airport, color coded by service, and viola. In this map I used green for the main airport with international service, yellow for smaller international airports with service from Iceland only, and red for airports with domestic Greenland service only. Choosing disc + user entered code + city name from the Map Controls > Markers > Simple dropdown is what enabled both the airport code and city name to be displayed on the map.

Code: [Select]

- You could add your own places and names.

To add a place, enter the coordinates. The easiest way to get those is to click on the spot in Google Maps, and the coordinates will show up on the bottom. Click on those, and you could copy and past it into GCMap. It's important to remember that Google and GCMap use coordinates differently; in particular, Google uses negative numbers for S and W, while in GCMap you need to use positive numbers and a  NSEW designation. For example, if Google gives you -74.050755, -41.945649, remove both minus signs, the comma, and space, and specify the direction NS of the Equator and EW of the Prime Meridian, like so: 74.050755s41.945649w.

To add your own place name, enter "%T\xxx"+@ with your text replacing the xxx. Place this before your coordinates, then choose disc + user entered code from the Map Controls > Markers > Simple dropdown.

Code: [Select]
color:white,"%T\Very Cold and Wet Place, But Penguins"+@74.050755s41.945649w

- Entering BINP gives you the North Pole. I'm not sure how or why, but it works ;D.

Code: [Select]

I'm sure there are more, this is just what I could think of at the moment. Feel free to add your own tips.

Re: In A Tight Spot - Looking For Some Insight
Hi there,

I am currently in a bit of a bind.
I have numerous Chase credit cards as well as some from other banks that have all recently come due with their annual fees.
I have paid the fees in the past simply because I wasn't interested in hassling.
This was not the most responsible decision as I could not afford to pay the fees and most of the cards I barely use.
I understand that one can downgrade in certain  scenarios such as with the Saph Preferred to Reg Saph.
With these cards however, such as the Chase BA card and Chase Hyatt card, there is no lower tier card to downgrade to.
In a perfect world I would love to keep the cards and have them in my pocket in case I need to use one of the benefits, but realistically I cannot simply absorb the cost this time around.
Other than losing the benefits for a rainy day, I am most concerned about closing the cards, losing the credit, and thereby hurting my overall credit score.
So - other than calling and trying to waive the fees by begging (which I am really not in the mood of doing) what are my best courses of action?
Are there specific tactics one can use if I call where I would avoid begging but still convince them to maintain the cards through a waiver of the fee?
Would they be open to shifting all my credit lines to other cards?

I understand this post may have been a bit long winded but I wanted to ensure that I covered all the bases.
Thank you for reading and I would truly appreciate any advice.
Shifting credit before closing is easy.

To those of you complaining about Pesach programs in general, would you go if it were free?

Not complaining, just feel it's incompatible.

Not only would I not go if it were free, I can't think of any price I would be willing to get paid in order to go to something like this (talking about the luxury programs), or even to a more "modest" program, unless I could have my own cooking facilities and my own food.

My values are not for sale at any price!

That's great.

Ready used it a bunch of times in Brooklyn and got a bunch of free rides for $0.

I actually like this better than the flat fares for local trips.
