Has anyone been able to upgrade a 50k Ritz certificate to use it at a higher category property? (or convert to points)

Thanks!

Up In The Air / EY-Apartments: 2 adults 1 child 1 infant possible?
« on: May 21, 2017, 05:24:09 PM »
Hi everyone,

I was hoping for some advice on this. I'm trying to get 2 adults 1 young child and an infant into EY apartments and was hoping for some ideas. I see 2 seats available from AUH to JFK on two flights on the same day.

Option 1, is it possible to book these flights and then combine them into the same flight? Maybe book the infant on one flight alone and then aviation laws require EY to re-book the infant to fly with the adults?

Option 2, book 2F and 1J+infant fare and then move between cabins. It seems like you could fit everyone in F if they allow it. Does anyone have experience with the flight attendants doing this? I could book the child in J and then they would be compelled to have the child sit with the adults.

Thanks!

Credit Cards / Any way to transfer UR from freedom?
« on: November 30, 2016, 11:27:20 PM »
Hi everyone,

I have two chase accounts with UR points but don't have a point transfer card like the Sapphire. Is there an easy way to transfer UR to transfer partner? I was thinking about converting a Freedom to a Sapphire but would rather avoid that.

Thanks!

Credit Cards / Missed Barclays spending date
« on: September 21, 2016, 02:47:24 AM »
Hi everyone,

This is the first time this has happened to me... I got really busy and missed the deadline for a Barclays Arrival card spending by 2 days. Has anyone had success in getting the bonus after missing the deadline?

thanks!

On The Road / Rental car - Liability in CA
« on: June 03, 2016, 02:35:16 PM »
Hi everyone,

I have a two week rental coming up (from SIXT) and am trying to figure out what to do with liability insurance. Per this article https://www.tripadvisor.com/Travel-g28926-c196885/California:United-States:Car.Rental.Insurance.Requirements.html CA is an exception in that rental car companies are not required to cover the minimum liability insurance (compared to other states where they are). In that case, what does everyone do for liability in CA? I plan on doing AMEX premium CDP for piece of mind at $1 a day but am not sure what to do with liability.

Thanks!

Credit Cards / Citi unable to pull frozen EXP
« on: February 28, 2016, 08:23:34 PM »
Hi everyone,

I've had this issue with Citi twice now. They are unable to use my pin (either my standard pin or a newly created one time pin) to pull my CR after an app. Has anyone else had this problem? How did you get around it?

Thanks!

Up In The Air / IST-TLV options
« on: October 26, 2015, 12:12:17 AM »
Hi everyone, there's a lot of J availability to IST on TK and I'd like to book tickets via aeroplane miles. However, IST-TLV is a $500~ rt ticket and I'd like to avoid transferring to SAW which has cheaper tickets. Does anyone have any good ideas for TLV-IST? Aeroplane would charge another 30k or so each way.

Credit Cards / Best credit monitoring service
« on: January 01, 2015, 05:46:29 PM »
Hi everyone,

I've been using ProtectmyID since the Target security breech but it looks like that service is expiring soon. So, I've been looking for a new service to replace it. ProtectmyID is $10 a month and I'm not interested in paying that much (ideally). I need something more that the free ones like creditkarma (which I use and monitor anyway) as I need the insurance provided by the pay for services (there MAY have been a breech of security on one of my systems exposing my social). What would you suggest?

Thanks!

Up In The Air / What's the status of LX/LH J or F flights to TLV?
« on: November 14, 2014, 12:12:16 PM »
Hi everyone,

I'm thinking about using MM to book a flight on LX or LH to TLV from the US. The Europe to US flights would be great but I'm worried about the trek from Europe to TLV. It seems like all the flights from ZRH, FRA and MUC(?) to TLV are on their a321 with a fake business class. Do these airlines still have any flights with a proper J/F class? If not, are there any other award options to TLV from ZRH, FRA or MUC (aside from LY)?

Thanks!

Up In The Air / Emirates with Korean air miles
« on: July 11, 2014, 09:08:06 PM »
Hey everyone,

I'm interested in booking a one way award on emirates via skypass miles. Is there any trick to do this? Also, if possible, I'd like to mix one leg on emirates with korean air (or another carrier) again using skypass miles. Is there any trick to do this?

Thanks!

P.S. I know the rules the say otherwise but I thought I'd see if anyone has some tricks

Hey everyone,

I've been trying to find availability on Aer Lingus business from BOS to DUB or Shannon but haven't seen ANY flights on United or BA. Is there another way to search for these? I want to use the BA sweet spot.

Thanks!

Up In The Air / To/From TLV on KF miles
« on: July 02, 2014, 10:32:54 AM »
Hey everyone,

I'd like to fly JFK-FRA-TLV with the first leg in singapore suites. Would this award be 57.5k (if I can convince the phone agent for 15% off) + Taxes and fees (FRA ones, TLV ones or both?) or would it follow the star alliance partner chart?

Thanks!

Up In The Air / Need two seats (JAL) - Book J and Y then upgrade?
« on: May 26, 2014, 04:45:41 PM »
Hey everyone,

I need two seats business class seats on a JAL flight sometime in mid-December (have a very hard time finding availability during this time period) and would like to use AA miles to book it. The flight I'm looking at is a two class cabin. Is booking one seat in business and one in econ then waiting for more J to open up and pay the miles difference a good idea? Do you know if AA lets you do this? Anything else I can do?

Thanks!
J

Up In The Air / MR to Krisflyer
« on: May 25, 2014, 04:18:56 AM »
Hey everyone,

I've heard most people say that MR points transfer to Krisflyer in under 24hrs. Well, I tried transferring from UR and MR over two days ago and they still aren't in my account. What's my best option for trying to expedite the points transfer? I have an award in mind and want to book it white I can.

Thanks!
