Also, the destination was put in, the guy took a ride to the airport all while on an empty tank?;

The driver doesn't know where you're going until you get in the car, AFAIK.

Was a party, cousin called the Lyft, put my address in as first stop then his as destination

Lyft driver goes to my cousin, tried to end trip, cousin was like no you gotta take him home, so supposedly he updated the destination

He then drove 1 mile in the other direction, tries dropping me off at a car dealership at 2 or 3am. I said uh no, I repeated my address.

My phone was off so short of walking 2 miles home, I insisted he take me home.. he makes a call, I figure he's calling Lyft.

7 police cars show up!! Wowza.. I'm like uhh what's up officers, they requested id, I gave them

Officer "sir have you been drinking? " Oh absolutely yes officer, that's why we did the sensible thing and took Lyft.

Cop says that the driver claims my cousin cancelled the ride.. what utter bogus crap.

They called a taxi for me and that was a rip off.

Sorry but Lyft and Uber etc need a contract of carrier.  They can't be just dumping people off in middle of nowhere. What if it was a bad neighborhood?
Well at least you got a good story out of it. Not exactly the same but you remind me of a joke that went around on whatsapp one year....

This holiday season let's be careful. Last night I went to a Christmas party.  I had a few eggnogs, followed by some beers, a few cocktails, and then of course a few shots.
I still had the sense to know I was over the limit. That's when I decided to do what I've never done before: I took a cab home.

Sure enough, there was a police road block on the way home, and since it was a cab, they waived it past.  I arrived home safely with no incident.  This was both a relief and a surprise because I had never driven a cab before.  I don't even remember where I got it, and now that it's in my garage, I'm not quite sure what to do with it.

Aeroplan ending status qualification in Jan 2020. Emails went out to status holders today.

As we plan for the launch of a more rewarding Aeroplan in 2020, we're reimagining how we can best recognize our most loyal Aeroplan members. In preparation for this, over the course of next year, we'll be winding down the Aeroplan status program. Beginning January 2020, you will no longer be able to qualify for Aeroplan status.

Credit Cards / Re: Amex Offers Discussion Thread

I'm surprised to not see any discussion about recent Amex clawbacks here. Or is there a different thread for that kind of discussion?

Good thing RAT does not read these forums/blogs.

Or maybe they do.

Excuse the guy's language.

Asking for a friend:

What should one expect to pay for a 3-4 year old Sienna or Oddysey with ~30k miles on it in NY/NJ?

Any suggestions of a good dealer to call for one?

Yes, I think some of canada's new air passenger rights laws came into effect in July and the rest come into effect on December 15.

What happens if I get a refund on an Amex card that I closed?

Do they send a check automatically, or can I call and have the refund transferred to an open card?
