At the time I tried to reserve my rooms in a single hotel (category eight) there wasn't availability for all of the nights I wanted.  Eventually I was able to get all of the nights I wanted, but it was on 4 separate reservations.  Because there weren't 5 nights on any of the reservations they would not give me the 5th night free.  The hotel said that they would combine the reservations on their end so that I wouldn't have to change rooms in the middle of my stay but they couldn't combine it so that I could get the 5th night free!

 I would like to fly to Israel nonstop in business class from NYC. What are the best points/miles to accumulate for this and which airlines should I be looking to book through? Thanks

Depends on how much the flights cost. But with BA you can cancel up to 24 hours before your flight and just lose the taxes.

That's what I'm asking, can I cancel by booking it any other way, or is BA the only option?  Don't think I'm getting a great value either way.  Just want to be able to cancel.

I have not used Avios in a long time.  Is it better to book American flights directly with Amex MR points or to transfer to Avios and book through British Airways?  It seems as if it will be the same amount of points, but I would like the ability to cancel.

How does Amex calculate Marriot points. It doesnít seem to be calculated properly.  Is there somewhere that I can see how the points were earned, itís not matching up with what I believe it should be

Do I have any recourse if Marriott is playing games with my reservations made before the categories went up? They cancelled one reservation and points went up on others and nobody is willing to help. I have printed reservation confirmations.

Iíve been told by a Ritz Carlton hotel manager that the categories are changing on Jan 31. Has this date been confirmed?

How can I save multiple offers?  When I have all of the screens open for multiple account holders and click on one offer the screen seems to freeze.

He said they did not give up, just need a day or 2 to get it all to fedex... then will continue war...  They are not as equipped as amazon...
Also they want to see how many people also buy stuff instore when picking something up. So will be monitoring with surveys etc

They're fedexing everything to their own stores?  Would think they would send it on their own trucks.

Use first time referral code for $15.00 off

And  NEW AMEX offer for $35.00 off $100.00!

PLUS USE 10% Off 8WG2SS0

Could be $65.00 off 100$ for first time users!
Wouldn't your amex have to be charged $100 in order to get the $35 credit.  I assume you'd need to spend more in order to trigger the offer with those discounts.  Something more like about $62 off an order of about $128, depending on which order they process the discounts.

Is there any way to change the flight that it gives you?  Every time I try to modify it, gets stuck processing.
