how does it work transferring UR to UR
i can get from 3 other family members on the same address or i can only get 1 time a year?
UR to UR you can get as many times as you want, but you can only link another account to yours (or in this case, yours to theirs) 24 hours after the last linked account was removed.

If you want from 3 people to you (and not wait multiple days), make a chain:
A transfers to B, B transfers everything to C, etc.

Nah, not the owner. I remember they were around in 2018 and then shut down for a while because I think they overextended themselves? Not sure.
2018 is still considered new..

Email i got today......

Your travel falls under the guidelines of European Union Regulation (EC) 261/2004 defining an airline's requirements when flight changes occur. KLM Flight 1974 on May 09th 2019 from Budapest to Amsterdam were delayed due Air traffic Control delays in Amsterdam.  After reviewing this claim, compensation (600 EUROS) is not due in accordance with the EU recommendation. However, as a gesture of apology, I’m sending a $50.00 USD Delta Choice gift to each of you. You will receive a Delta Choice gift code,

Anything to do?
This is email from DL or KL?

The CSR argued with me that it wasn’t possible they sent 2 extra devices. Was not in the mood of doing HUCA. So I let it be.

Just spoke to a 'shop your way' rep because I was missing uber points. He let me know me that they where just informed today that uber and shop your way would be ending their partnership on May 31, 2019

Hopefully, he was misinformed...
As it is, they already devalued the benefit at the end of March, that you now only get $1 in SYWR per Uber ride, capped at $20 per month.

The SYWR program itself devalued a few months back, that points redeemed don’t count towards minimum spend thresholds for free shipping, so you end up paying for shipping (on a per item level) unless you do store pickup (oh, and their prices are often much higher then other major retailers).

But if we are counting with a Yiddish'a Kup we will need to count michtazas hayom k'kuluy. So if he sends out a deal on motzai shabbos, shabbos counts as a whole day.
Except that Shabbos is not a business day to begin with.

I waited way more that any imaginable 9 business days, and they still didnt send a check. Not sure how you can not have 9 business days in 20+ days.
You're doing the math wrong. Take the 9 business days mentioned, but then multiply it by 3 since only 8 of the actual days (24)hours qualify as business hours   ::) ::)

is there an expert mode to see fare class availability like on UA?

Not at all. Cards like Chase and Citi do not require SSN so in theory can be added any time. sock draw the card as soon as they arrive.
Wouldn’t a AU added without SSN not count as history since it’s not actually linked to the person you want it to? It’s just a card with a name. You can write Mickey Mouse on the card for all they care.

I'm looking to book LAX-EWR on 6/24 on AA. Lowest price is ~$250, but I can piece together 2 one-ways with a 47 minute layover in PHX for $137 (AA2318 + AA1439).  Neither the AA website nor any OTA's will offer this combination of flights when I search LAX-EWR. I did confirm with an AA agent that it does not violate minimum connections times for PHX (she couldn't quote for me exactly what the MCT is, but said the system allows it for this combination of flights). However, the agent said we probably can't check any bags and there is a risk that the itinerary will get automatically cancelled even up to an hour before the flight.  She couldn't explain why though - something about "pricing rules won't allow it."

AFAICT, this isn't a hidden city because I intend to take both legs of the flight. And if it doesn't violate minimum connection times, what else could the airline use as justification to cancel the itinerary? If AA issues a valid booking number can they cancel it for any reason? Does any part of it violate the airline's contract of carriage?

Those flights price together and can be booked in GDS. Not sure why AA/OTA won't allow it.

As low as $558.

I think it's usually more expensive.
Keep in mind prices like that might not include luggage ($60 for first bag per passenger per direction), and are non-changeable and non-refundable.

Do magazine subscriptions make an Alaska account "dirty"?
Only if there is Pritzus in the magazine.
