Credit Cards / Staples Gift Card Problem
« on: January 11, 2021, 08:21:54 PM »
I bought five gift cards in person at Staples and gave them as gifts. None of them are working and the card company says they were not loaded/activated. Staples says they were.
Anyone have experience with this? The card company says I should physically bring them back to Staples and tell them they were not loaded; if they deny it, call them from the store and they will testify that it never loaded.

Just got an offer with 10% cash back on groceries, restaurants, and food deliveries through May. After that it's the regular 1.8 CB. Thoughts?

Credit Cards / Chase Card Management Strategy Question
« on: September 06, 2020, 04:48:14 PM »
I am just out of 48 months for the Reserve. Annual fee has come due and I have minimal points left. Current offer is at 50000 and Preferred at 60000. I am planning to downgrade to Freedom as I have the other cards currently. Would you apply for preferred or wait and see if reserve has a better offer in the upcoming months?

I'll start. My dentist is charging an extra $30.00 per visit for extra sanitizing and PPE. Methinks it's a bit much!

If I want to maximize the amount of gift certs I use by making separate bookings for each passenger, can I later merge the separate PNRs?

Up In The Air / Strange Baggage Allowance on United award
« on: July 13, 2020, 10:58:31 PM »
I just booked a United one way award from TLV-EWR. Economy no status. When I enter the reservation on United's site it shows two free 70lb allowances. My email confirmation has the standard first bag free second bag 100. Has anyone seen this before? Will I really be able to have two free 70lb suitcases?

I started this thread in the wrong place and mods haven't moved it, so I am posting my new question here.
I have two options and both require approximately the same amount of driving.
Option 1:                                                         Option 2:
LAS                                                                  LAS
Hoover Dam/Lake Mead                                     Grand Canyon
Zion/Bryce (one day only)                                  Lake Powell/Antelope
Grand Canyon                                                   Bryce
Sedona                                                             Zion
PHX                                                                  LAS

What do you recommend and why?
