Up In The Air / Re: TSA Precheck
« on: June 05, 2018, 05:08:44 PM »
This might be the wrong thread, and might be asked and answered, but I tried searching to no avail, so I hope the powers that be will forgive me.

Does a single Amex card get credit for multiple TSA or GE fees? If not, will it get credited for one of each? I'm thinking of applying for TSA pre for myself and GE for my wife using the same card.

TIA

Thanks, what hotel would you recommend?
Residence Inn by Marriott San Diego La Jolla is a nice place, especially if you have SPG/Marriott points. Two bedroom/two floor villa options with nice kitchen. There's a Shabbos minyan by the Chabad shaliach for SD State University on premises, with a Kidduch/lunch after musaf. The whole area is within the eruv too. Complimentary breakfast in the lobby with many kosher options. If you want proof they'll show you the bags/packaging of most items.

Can't you do that now with keywords like Israel?
I could, and it would work most of the time, only that one time I'll miss a glitch that gets me to Hawaii for 4 points because ifttt didn't pick up one of my arbitrary keywords.

You don't really need separate accounts, just using a keyword like travel/deal in the tweet that automation services like ifttt can parse and depending on keyword forward the tweet as a text or not.

On The Road / Green Motion USA car rental?
« on: January 13, 2018, 10:44:50 PM »
Hi guys,

Has anyone ever heard of this car rental? (https://greenmotionusa.com) Their prices are half what other rentals are offering, but I've never heard of them and don' know whether to trust them.

Any leads would be appreciated.

PSA For anyone coming to San Diego- chabad La Jolla opened up abminyan for shabbas literally in the residence inn La Jolla! I had no idea till I randomly saw frum people today.  They had a full delicious lunch everyone was invited too and they wanted to get the word out to let travelers know. Minyan Friday night and shabbas day in meeting room above the lobby, toys for kids in the playroom and a great energetic young rabbi who mostly does campus kiruv during school season (minyan still located here during winter as well). Please spread word, really enhanced shabbas here.

Is the Shabbos Minyan in Residence Inn La Jolla still active?

Edit: Apparently it is.

Going end of January for 7-10 days with DW and two kids, ages 5&6.

I have 60K IHG with a free night, 43K SPG gold status, and plenty UR, MR, or I can pay cash.

Are there any IHG options worth writing home about? Has anyone done Airbnb? Tips? Shabbos meals? La Jolla vs. Coronado?
Are there any SPG or IGH options with suites+kitchenette? I'd appreciate any help I can get on this.

Thanks

Not working when I add Dan's Pellegrino. What might I be doing wrong?
Are you using a MasterCard for payment?

those two items are NOT sold by amazon.
They are sold by Wish House and ETCBUYS


ETA: Actually, on your first link, you can switch the seller to Amazon.

Huh? Then what does "Ships from and sold by Amazon.com." mean? It's in the description of both items.

Thanks.

I did try it with items sold and shipped by amazon and it didn't work. For example these:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B015G29PEI/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER
https://www.amazon.com/Wish-House-Rotation-Universal-Reinforced/dp/B01FNTZEUS/ref=sr_1_231?m=ATVPDKIKX0DER

I added multiple of them to bring the total to $10.

But when I add the San Pellegrino item Dan posted in the link the credit does show up. #weird

Why does the credit show up only when I add certain items to my cart and not others?

It actually does not say that men can't get the free promo.
They might not be allowed legally to have a promotion just for women. Gender discrimination and all.
