Up In The Air / Fly AA a bunch, best credit card?
« on: September 07, 2013, 10:24:57 PM »
I fly AA about 12-15 times a year. What is the best credit card in order to get the various benefits with them (baggage, miles, etc). Is the CitiBank card the only option or are there others?

Credit Cards And Finance / Costco Cash Card?
« on: June 16, 2013, 04:05:02 PM »
I have a Costco Exec Membership and the Costco Business Amex, so I get a maximum rebate. The max rebate every year is $750 or thereabouts. My question is thus: do I get the rebate when purchasing a Costco Cash Card and then is it possible to cash out those cards using Amazon Payment or other service with no to minimal service fee?

Credit Cards And Finance / Visa + Citgo = rewards
« on: June 19, 2012, 06:26:12 PM »
I see that Citgo is offering a rewards program for every $20+ you spend there. You are able to link multiple Visa branded CCs to this. Here's the link:

I also got a notice from my Chase Freedom Visa card that the new quarterly bonuses include gas. I linked my Freedom to Citgo for maximum bonuses. My gas tank is pretty empty now so I'll get exactly $20.00 in gas every day on the way home, racking up both Citgo bonuses and Freedom points. Excellent!

Tech Talk / Need GPS, please suggest
« on: May 23, 2011, 11:56:01 AM »
Dan & everyone-

My car was broken into last night and my radio and GPS were stolen. It's time to replace the GPS. Without the GPS I am completely lost. (I can either navigate or drive, not both at the same time.)

Insurance is helping pay for the new GPS, so please suggest one of very high quality.

Up In The Air / Israel in August on cash & points?
« on: March 28, 2011, 08:40:35 PM »
Dan and others,
I have $450 to work with in order to get myself to Israel in August. I have about 40,000 Starwoods points and the following in airlines:
AA- 12,300
Delta- 16,800

Do you know of any cash/point deals for any of those three? I can transfer the 40,000 points into them at any point. Please advise as soon as you conveniently can.

Up In The Air / Delta lounge day pass?
« on: October 08, 2010, 04:12:34 PM »
I have a long layover at Laguardia on Tuesday and would enjoy to spend time in the lounge. I am flying economy so no free pass.

How can I get a free or cheap day pass to the delta lounge?

On The Road / Delta miles with Enterprise car rental?
« on: August 28, 2009, 02:16:31 PM »
Dan (et al),

I used the Chabad corporate code for an Enterprise rental for a few days. I am trying to find out if I can get Delta miles. Is this possible?

Good Shabbos.

Tech Talk / Broken!
« on: August 04, 2009, 05:42:14 PM »
Dan, I bought this in May 08:

I have it and love it! But earlier today the sound stopped coming out of the right ear bud, tho the mic just below it still works. I stupidly didn't use my Amex to buy it. Any hopes on getting Sony to replace it?

Credit Cards And Finance / Best card for groceries
« on: July 29, 2009, 12:38:32 AM »
I don't drive much. Maybe fill the tank once a month. I do, however, need to eat. What's the best card for the highest reward for grocery purchases?

Credit Cards And Finance / Starpoints and AMEX
« on: June 30, 2009, 06:07:12 PM »
Dan, if I charge $4k on my Amex Starwoods and pay it off before the due date do I still get the points? A quick look makes me thing something is up.

General Discussion / Where's Dan?

Just curious is he's off getting hitched and when we might see updates again.

Credit Cards And Finance / Chase Freedom $250 rebate???
« on: October 17, 2008, 01:07:55 AM »
Dan (or anyone else),

I applied for a Chase Freedom over a year ago, was approved and got the card. The ad said that it came with a $250 rebate. I even called a few times and was told this was happening, just be patient.

It's been over a year. Probably more. I am about to start filing complaints against Chase with the various authorities...and possible a small claim lawsuit.

However- I am looking for the original ad! Dan (or anyone else), can you please link me to this ad? I'll need it for the obvious reasons.

Thank you. Moadim lsimcha. Good moed.

Tech Talk / Garmic GPS map update- 2009
« on: June 22, 2008, 02:56:22 AM »

I just got an email from Garmin about the 2009 map update. This notice is also showing up on my Garmin GPS. They say they want $69 buck for it. I think that's outrageous! Any tips or deals on getting it much cheaper?


Up In The Air / Flying to Israel- what card to use, what airline?
« on: June 11, 2008, 09:23:51 PM »
Hey, folks. I am flying to Israel in August for a relative's wedding. I am curious what credit card I should use to book the flight and what frequent flyer program I should use in order to get the best miles.

Please let me know soon as I gotta book the flight in the next day or so.
