I believe Israel mandatory comp is only after 8 hours.

Am I the only one who thinks something fishy is going on?
He's on a cruise, leave him alone.

If it's a trial that attempts a temporary hold (usually $1), those websites will get declined.

I just use the Privacy app to quickly generate VCC's with $1 limit.

Works for alcohol too.

Up In The Air / Re: Which Flight Should I Take?

That's what I thought you asked. So I wasn't sure what you were talking about with morning ZRH flight.
The morning flight from ZRH-TLV might(/will) not be real J in the winter. So take that into consideration when choosing flights.

I can't tell if the comma belongs before or after "my wife"
Can go either way, depending on the couple.

For me, it would be before :(

What points to use flying from YUL to LAX
I have BA or Aeroplan
Only Air Canada (Aeroplan miles) flys direct. No Chase points or United miles? Could get better value booking with United (if no close in fee).

Not exactly.
You have order volume and member lists from all the groups to compare?

And just to give credit where it is due, I just had my first items for Pointsmaker delivered yesterday and it is already scanned in and in my account. Just requested check and will see how long that takes. The group that I used for all my BF items still has not scanned in a majority of my deliveries. USA seems to be up to 12/2/18 tracking numbers for me.
Smaller groups with less orders being shipped in move quicker..

Looking over that profile, anyone selling a bunch of large airline GC @ 70% sounds like a scammer.

Credit Cards / Re: Capital One Announces Mileage Transfer Program

Good point. Since those currencies rarely go above 1.35 it would be a wash at best.
Yes if you have your own travel category purchased being done on the card (or are okay redeeming for gift cards).

If you don't have any travel categories being booked on the card (to redeem the points for) and need to sell the points as travel at a discount (say to a broker / travel agent), the math changes.
If you sell at 10% discount ($2k booking for $1.8k), the transfer ratio equivalent would be 1.2, so you come out ahead getting the Amex/Citi rates (1.3+).

And here we are another week later. I have items delivered a full 2 weeks ago that still have not been scanned. Of my orders that were delivered 7 or more days ago, only half have been processed. At some point this starts to feel shaky.
This is a problem. I don't care if you don't open the packages and have it ready for payment right away, I get the warehouse is backed up right now. But at least let me know you got my package, since if you didn't and the carrier says it was delivered, I can't come back a month later and say I never got it.

And since you are having multi-week delay on incoming packages, at least once the contents are verified, do your "customers" a favor and process echecks at the end of every business day.
Import / Export batch features should make it pretty quick to process..

Lol, I don't need a math lesson, that part is simple. The question is more to do with the market rates of the various transfer partners.
Everyone on the list (other then Finnair and Hainan) is either with Amex or Citi, so those market rates should be max, no?

And even for that, will also depend on if non-matching names can accept transfers (as online, you can't select to anyone other then primary AH).
