Up In The Air / Taking someone else's luggage
« on: July 27, 2015, 08:37:10 PM »
So when asked in an airport if you packed the luggage and you answer no, what happens? (Specifically asking Ben Gurion, but can answer for all airports as well)

Just Shmooze / Great tzedoka cause!

Hey guys.
Not sure if this is part of forum rules. If it isn't then delete.
If it is, but mods want move it to a different thread I'm asking if it can stay as a separate thread just for 24 hours. :)

Basically, the Chabad shluchim to American University are on a campaign to raise $40k in 24 hours. Whatever you give is matched by three independent people. Meaning when you give $20 it becomes $80. So for them to reach their goal of $40k they need $10k in donations. Its an all or nothing situation.

The shluchim there do a really great job. They're completely given over to helping the roughly 1200 Jewish students there. I have personally seen them in action, and can testify that they are 100% dedicated and selfless in what they do. This will help support what they do. For example, shabbos meals - where they host college students, to give them a taste of shabbos With חנוכה around the corner it will help support the hundreds of menorahs which will be given out, and The list goes on and on. It really is a special thing they do. You can see how much the students appreciate a shabbos meal, receiving a menorah, or just having someone to talk to. By helping them reach their goal you are in essence assisting in bringing Jews closer to Hashem and therefore have a portion of that שכר. It really is a worthy cause, and even a little bit goes a long way.  (Remember its quadrupled.) :)
Thanks to all those that help.

Up In The Air / 20% bonus for topping up avios. Minimum of 2k points.
« on: October 03, 2014, 03:42:54 PM »
Dear yoshi

What could you look forward to with a 20% bonus on Avios purchased this October? An upgrade to a higher cabin? Or a holiday somewhere special perhaps?

To pick up your 20% bonus, simply top up a minimum of 2000 Avios between 1 October and 31 October. Alternatively buy them for friends and family and let them enjoy the 20% bonus too.

You can still purchase up to 27,000 Avios for yourself this year, meaning youíre entitled to 5400 bonus Avios. So make sure you donít miss out. 

Not sure if its targeted. Or if its worthwhile. Don't have time now to make the calculations.

I guess this is why the mods deleted this method right away when it first went up.

Just Shmooze / Where is Meshugeners Yarmulka, and why is he yellow?

Due to recent questions, speculations and lounges being opened, I thought it would be fitting to ask the question. All theories and hypothesis are welcomed.

Credit Cards And Finance / credit card application question
« on: December 22, 2013, 12:59:38 AM »
I have a friend who wants to apply for a credit card. I checked up his credit report using citiidentity monitor. He has been an authorized user on a capital one card since 2011 which he recently closed. Although he is now an authorized user with a different capital one card and two amex cards. All this is on his credit report. Would he need to start with a low card like bank of America because he was just an authorized user, even though its on his credit report. Or could he go straight to 2bm and 3bm methods as if he has had cc since 2011?

Up In The Air / NYC to Australia flights
« on: November 25, 2013, 01:16:22 AM »
Hi,
I've been looking around for tickets to Australia from NYC from the beggining of February until about half way through. Tickets now seem to be very expensive. ($1500-$1700)
Anyone with any ideas?

I looked on older forums and couldn't seem to find anything. If anyone has any help it would be appreciated.
Thanks!
