Is there a way to see the foreign currency amount on a credit card charge?

Some vendors come up under funny names and if I could see how much the charge was in the foreign currency I could probably figure it out.


LYFT: Get a one-time $15 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a minimum of $75+ in one or more.

Found on ED

Lyft $15 off $75. Seems like I was only targeted on personal cards. Will it work with gift cards?

Yep. The Pacific is terrific as well.
Band of Brothers was great, but you're the first person I've heard that enjoyed The Pacific. It got such bad reviews from people I knew that I didn't even bother watching.

Seamless - Spend $20 get back $5 twice exp 11/20/18.

Found on Business SPG, Blue Business Plus (should stack with the 2x on seamless on BBP)

Matches must be done in person in Atlantic City.
All money is gambling credit (~90% expected value), nights mostly have expiration dates.

Hyatt Discoverist status matches Borgata/Mlife Pearl status (online match)
Pearl status matches Golden Nugget chairman status
Golden Nugget chairman status matches Total Rewards (Caesars) Diamond status (free night + other benefits)

Hard Rock matches Ocean (black card) status (2 free nights, $115)
Diamond status also matches back at Borgata to Mlife gold ($100, 1 free night) (You need to tell them it's a new account, just created earlier today and the Pearl is just from the Hyatt match to get the credit and free night)

Mlife gold matches to Hyatt Explorist (mid-tier Hyatt status)

The MLife to Hyatt can be done online by logging into your MLife account and "Opting In" to Hyatt on the bottom right hand side.

I got pulled over for an illegal left turn (from a center lane) in a Nassau County town (Old Westbury). Based on the ticket he gave me it looks like he wrote down my DL# wrong.

Two questions: One, is there a way for me to see if he put the number into the system wrong. I know for NYC there's a website to look up tickets under your DL# but I don't see one for Nassau. Two, if he did indeed put the number in wrong, would that be enough for me to get the ticket thrown out?

I know according to Dan, you can upgrade the Nights+Flights by paying the difference (if you get a cat 1-5 cert you can the difference in price for a cat 7 in points). Can you do that with the anniversary night as well?

Should probably be in thread by itself, just figured with he 10% at Lowes people will be purchasing gift cards.

I would be very careful about purchasing gift cards at Lowes.

Purchase $1000 of Amazon cards at Lowes and after swiping (or chip) card and signing when computer has to activate it came up "gift card not valid" and computer froze. Manager took me to a different computer, tried again and this time it spit out a receipt that all the gift cards aren't good didn't charge.
Figured maybe they have a limits, so stopped at another lowes and did 2 swipes of $400 and all went thru.

Sure enough next day on my card is a charge for $2000. Called Lowes and was promised they would get back to me. (They couldn't even find in their system the charge that the computer froze). OF course after a week and nobody got back to me I Disputed the charge.

And to add insult to injury...went to process my Amazon cards and 2 don't work. Amazon is stating that they can't tell why its not working as they are getting an error as well, and they suspect it wasn't activated. (I have the recipe showing it is) and I should go back to Lowes.
Bottom line I suspect that Lowes Computer has issues activating cards and that you should be vary wary if its worth the whole hassle.
I had an issue with Shell GCs from Lowes, I think it was only $250 but they didnt load and I when I check the balance, it turned out they weren't activated. After waiting on line for what felt like forever because a customer service rep just walked away, they finally checked the GCs with shell, shell said they werent activated and Lowes refunded my CC.

Old link is working again for me. I dont think it will help with Amex offers, but its easier to navigate with this than the new interface.

Here is their phone number 609-800-3686
6514 Ventnor Ave, Ventnor, NJ 08406
Small menu (burgers, falafel, schnitzel etc) but very good.
I was in AC on Thursday. But this is good for future use, if they're still around.
