Credit Cards / Re: SPG vs Capital One

FU= 1.5 PPD x ~ 1.4-1.5 CPP= 2.1-2.25 CPP
Please explain for the lay person. I don't understand your brevity.

Have not made any decision yet. Have been using SPG for years accumulating many many points and then selling them for about 1.65 cents per point. Someone recommended Capital One Business which offers 2 cents cash back on every dollar charged (so I was told). Asking for people with experience if it makes sense to start using a Capital One Business card going forward. If there are other (better) options, I'd love to hear them please.

For someone that doesn’t stay much in hotels and books airline tickets at whim (not much time to wait for points to transfer), what is a better credit card to accumulate points on? AMEX SPG or Capital One?

I am aware of that. Thing is I didn't try doing the transfer till today and there's no way it will post by tomorrow. So I did not do the transfer. Now I'm trying to see if I can book the flight with someone elses AA points and pay it back with either SPG points or AA points once I make the transfer, which BTW leads to another question: Can one transfer AA points from one account to another person's account?
DId you put through the transfer yet from SPG to AA? if yes when?
If you initiated by Friday morning then alot of reports indicate you would have them by today.

Up In The Air / Aadvantage Points - Can anyone help??

I have an emergency (Family member not well) and wanted to fly out to Montreal from NY tomorrow. I made a reservation on American Airlines for the flight and put it on hold in order to transfer SPG points to my AA rewards program for the flight. (If I pay for the flight in cash it would cost me $1,134.20 - due to last minute reservation). Problem is SPG can in no way make the transfer so quickly. Even with their rush program it takes 3-5 days for the transfer to take effect and I desperately need it for tomorrow. Can somebody allow me to use their AA points (25,000 of them) to book this flight, and I will transfer my spg points back to your AA program right away? I would really appreciate if someone can help out in this respect. It would be a lifesaver. Thank you and Tizku L'mitzvos.

Does anybody know of a kosher eatery that ships food ahead of time to the Atlantis in the Bahamas?

Does anyone know of a nice hotel with good rates for a 2-3 night stay with a family in the Lancaster, Amish town, Dutch Wundeland area? any itinerary would be appreciated. Thanks

Would appreciate if anyone could help me out here. I'm going on a cruise at the beginning of July. I need information on a tour guide/driver to take around my group of 6 people at the locations where we will be docking for the day. I pretty much have the itinerary as to where we would like to visit. I just need a comfortable limo service with an english speaking driver that could take us to the tourist attractions and be somewhat knowledgeable. Following are the locations: 1) Savona (Italy), 2) Barcelona (Spain), 3)Palma De Mallorca (Spain), 4) Tunis (Tunisia), 5) La Valetta (Malta). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Credit Cards / Credit Card Debt
« on: May 05, 2009, 10:20:13 AM »
Does anyone have any good advice on how to deal with a large balance on a credit card? I do not want to call any of these debt solution places. That lowers your credit score and I have great credit. I have never missed or been late on a payment. My APR on the balance is 8.99%. Should I try for a balance transfer with a 0% APR up to a certain date? Any other ideas? Is there any way I can negotiate with them directly to lower my balance or minimum payments without it affecting my credit? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Credit Cards / Re: Starwood Card
« on: March 12, 2009, 10:51:20 AM »
Can someone explain what churning means and how it works? Also does anybody know if it's possible to get the starwoods points posted to your account faster than waiting for the next billing statement? I applied for a new Starwoods Amex, received the card, and charged quite a bit on the crad already. Is it possible for me to get the bonus sign on points plus whatever I charged right away so I can do a HOtel booking immediately? Please let me know right away. Thanks. Also if anyone has any Starwood Points that they's like to sell let me know as well.
