General Discussion / Amazon digital credit ideas - expires today
« on: March 31, 2015, 03:00:00 PM »
I think my Amazon digital credit expires today, can't figure out how to tell.  I have almost $30 worth of mp3 and $30 worth of video.

Any ideas what to spend it on?  Everything I add to my cart isn't eligible, at least the credit doesn't show up.

I like TV series sitcoms etc.  but will take anything worthwhile.
Anyone else buy anything using their credit?

Up In The Air / Israel travel plans - to change or not
« on: July 24, 2014, 05:33:02 PM »
Not sure if this is the right forum. 
I'd love to see a discussion and how other people are handling their planned trips to Israel for summer vacation. 
These are the type of things I am curious about.
  • Are you cancelling your trip
  • What airline are you flying?
  • What cancellation / change options is your airline offering and if they offered a more flexible option would that change your mind?
  • When are you scheduled to fly
  • Are you flying with young children or elderly?
  • Where in Israel were you scheduled to stay?
  • What were your travel and touring plans in Israel and what are your plans now

I'll post mine in the next comment.  If this is the wrong forum, let me know where I should put it or if I should remove it completely.

I'm flying to Israel in a few weeks on a 'hidden city' ticket.  But I don't live near that city so I need to fly there and pay for  and check 1 piece of luggage to just fly it right back to JFk.  Can someone meet me at JFK and can I check it in there? 

General Discussion / Using Paypal to get Paid for Services
« on: November 07, 2013, 01:59:59 PM »
Anyone have experience using paypal to get paid.  If the person is transferring money from their bank account to mine and they say they are a friend, and then I transfer it to my bank account there should be no fees.

But if I do it too often will paypal shut me down? Or with large sums of money?  How much would you suggest as a  maximum? ???

What other options are there?

Credit Cards / Does Free 2nd Bag to Israel Exist?

Are there any credit cards that will get me a free 2nd bag to Israel on Delta?

Not sure where this should have been posted so fee free to move or suggest that I put this question somewhere else.

General Discussion / Temporary Cell Phone / Data For Israel
« on: May 29, 2013, 10:21:23 PM »
Anyone care to weigh in on where I can get the best deal on a cellphone and data stick for travel in Israel for about 10 days?  I'm located in Brooklyn and would like to take the phone from the US so that I have it in the airport.

Travel Cell has a special 14.99 a day mifi and phone unlimited
Talknsave seems to have a special 12.97 mifi and phone unlimited

Pros / cons of either?
Other options?

I don't need mifi, a data stick is good enough and I'd rather have that if it brings the cost down, but I do need a phone along with the data.

Need to fly out on a specific flight on a specific date.  I've knocked the price down a bit with the throw away trick, but tix are still very expensive.  I now have an agent trying to find a better deal, and I've been booking and cancelling the tix as I find better deals and to extend my 24 hour hold.

At what point will Orbitz protest?  I've done it like 5x so far.  Should I be trying to keep a hold by using other travel sites as well?  Which others are recommended.

Thanks for all the advice!

I didn't realize that it was a raffle at first, but not too many people have signed up so try your luck.

Up In The Air / Paying for tix to NYC-TLV what's the best website
« on: November 04, 2010, 12:53:41 AM »
Did a search and couldn't find this.  Didn't really know what to search for so please excuse me if this has already been discussed.

Would love some recommendations for best websites for buying tix to TLV.  Am I better off with a travel agent for any reason at all?  Orbitz price assurance seems not to great since it only works if someone else books the exact same itinerary as you.  Is orbitz better than expedia?  Should I just book directly at the airline?

Up In The Air / How do you trade/buy/sell SPG for AA or AMEX MR
« on: October 28, 2010, 06:10:01 PM »
I read in many topics about trading or buying selling points/miles etc. 
Since I can only switch SPG between members of same household are people suddenly becoming brothers/sisters? 
What about AA miles is there a way for someone to top off your account?
