Goods For Sale/Trade / Artscroll $2,500 gift certificate for sale
« on: May 15, 2015, 01:20:20 PM »
Will sell for $2100.  It's a regular gift-certificate that can be used on all items and the value does not need to be used all at once.

Credit Cards / amex delta
« on: August 10, 2012, 02:35:53 PM »
can't find this particular issue on the forums.   It seems that most stated limitations regarding eligibility for bonus points are pretty general, but the delta gold application is pretty specific:

"Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who have had this product within the last 12 months."

Anyone have trouble getting the bonus?  Are they stricter with this card?

On The Road / Amtrak

What are your experiences?   Every time I take the train, there is always an issue.  Just yesterday my 3-year old and I were crossing to the diner car and the train door was wide open- my guess is we were going around 70 mph at  the time.  I videoed it on my phone:

The phone stopped videoing after a minute and a half, but it took at least another 90 seconds until a conductor came to close the door.

Credit Cards / amex biz card application
« on: July 27, 2011, 10:53:30 AM »
did the 2-browser application for starwood consumer and starwood business cards.  Neither was instantly approved.  Checking the application status page, I see that the consumer starwood card was approved, but it does not have the business card listed at all.   do you think this is because of the 2-browser submission?  anyone have this before?

Deals/Deal Requests / W bed frame
« on: June 19, 2011, 01:58:52 PM »
The bed frame costs $125 and isn't valid for the 35% off.  Anybody buy this?  Worthwhile getting vs ordering for cheaper from a "regular" mattress store?

Credit Cards / closing starwood amex
« on: May 19, 2011, 01:15:49 PM »
I just got billed the $65 annual fee for the starwood amex and am thinking of closing it.  have so many amex cards, it doesn't seem to make sense to keep it open.

Will amex transfer my starwood credit amount on to another amex card, e.g. my gold?  if yes, does it require a credit check?

i've taken a beating recently (almost 80 points) on my FICO score because of Amex and need to stop that.

Credit Cards / free under $1
« on: May 01, 2011, 01:06:06 PM »
i saw a post a few days ago about a credit card that doesn't end up charging for the random prchase under $1.  I have that cc but can't remember which one it is.  Anyone have that info?

Anybody been there?  Heading there this summer...No starwood hotels in all of Norway!  Any recommendations?

Credit Cards / high credit limit
« on: April 11, 2011, 11:07:47 PM »
What's your opinion?  My Chase United Mileage Plus visa is about to end the first free year so I was planning to cancel, but i noticed that my credit limit on it is $20k which is one of my highest for any card (besides amex cards).  Will my credit take a big hit for this one?  If yes, is it worth the annual fee to avoid that at this time?

Up In The Air / so typical US Air
« on: April 09, 2011, 09:18:38 PM »
I received this email last week from US Air:   We know you love award travel...and we love seeing you happy! So, we added 1,000 bonus miles to your account. We hope these miles get you a little closer to your next award trip. Keep flying and using Dividend Miles partners and you’ll be on your way in no time!

Just received this follow up from them with the subject line "oops" :  Earlier this week, we inadvertently delivered an email message to many of our Dividend Miles members' email accounts. Unfortunately, one of those accounts was yours. Worse, this email incorrectly stated that we posted 1,000 Dividend Miles into your account. This was not accurate and the email message was sent in error.

Who at Usair actually makes marketing decisions??!

$40 for $80 Amigo Phone rental

is this a good deal?  Never used them, but traveling to Israel in July for a week, and then to Oslo for a few days after that.   Worthwhile getting?
