Tech Talk / Re: International Sim Discussion
« on: November 28, 2018, 04:36:16 PM »
Hi - I have VZW unlimited plan in US and in the past have paid $10 per day for use in Israel. Because my data was throttled and I started traveling to Israel for a few days every month, I got a Golan SIM on the NIS 39 per month, 50GB All Included plan (no virtual number), and swap my SIM every time I go to Israel. I'm looking for help on 2 things:

1) Is there a way to forward calls from my Golan number to my VZW US number, so when I'm back in the US I still get calls made to my Golan number? I called Golan and they told me it's not possible to forward to numbers outside of Israel, but I'm wondering if there's a workaround. 
2) I have an iPhone XS with e-sim - once VZW enables e-sim, would that help in some way, leaving the Golan SIM in my phone as a secondary line even in the US? Golan told me I can only use my Golan SIM outside the US (if I upgrade to the international plan) for 45 days per year, so not sure this would even help.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks @Geshmak25 ! If I open a biz plat under her name but at a different address (address of business as opposed to home), can that card be on the same account to use the legacy points with travel bonus?

Hi - my wife has 200k MR points under her name - was trying to transfer to my account which has an amex plat on it to use for amex travel spend with delta as preferred airline and 35% bonus, but rep told me MR points can only be transferred to airline/hotel partner accounts with the same address or to another amex account with same name. If I add my wife as an authorized user on my amex plat and add that card to her account, will she be able to book with amex travel and get the same 35% bonus on those points? TIA

Looking for info on using VZW cell in Canada. Options are to buy prepaid SIM, or pay for VZW international. Has this been discussed somewhere?

2 questions:

1) I will be spending at least $10k in the next three months. Wondering what's the best signup bonus I can get for that? Is it 100k Executive aadvantage world elite mastercard?

2) Is the Amex Everday card a fee free way to store MR rewards? If not, is there a way?

If you can downgrade them (and someone else will have to weigh in here) then you'll have them for SBS.

"SBS" = Small Business Saturday?

I'm not sure if the $95 AF for each card (they won't waive the first year AF - I called several times) is worth it for me. Is that the only other benefit of keeping the green card around?

My wife and I each have an AMEX Plat and MB AMEX Plat that we opened in December, juiced it for benefits. I now want to close/downgrade (I should have done it sooner, but I didn't get around to it). My only other AMEX is SPG. I already downgraded my AMEX Plat to Green. What should I do with all of them? I don't really need them and I want to get a prorated AF refund - should I cancel all 4? Downgrade all to Green? Close two and keep 1 Green for each of us? Do I need to keep a Green for each of us in order to keep our MR points? TIA.

Is there a thread on US banking and brokerages? I currently bank with Chase and they don't have a brokerage for banking customers. I trade with ETrade which has ridiculous trade commissions. So I'm thinking of moving over to BofA and using their Merrill Edge platform, which gives you free equity trades if you meet certain criteria. Although I don't want to completely leave Chase, because I like the Freedom, Sapphire Preferred, and checking account combo. Any recs on what to do? Anyone know the minimum balance one must maintain with Chase to be fee-free?

Need a sedan in Israel for 2-3 days, starting Sunday 2/17. Where should I go?

What's the best card to use? Amex Plat or Sapphire preferred?
