Credit Cards / Best cards for travel during holiday season
« on: September 14, 2014, 03:29:49 PM »
I think I'm a bit late in the game but I'm planning a trip to Europe between Christmas and New Years. From my research it seems like the miles required at least double during that time. Are there any cards worth signing up for now that will get me enough miles in time? Economy is fine.

General Discussion / Cholov Yisrael Substitutes

As a spinoff of the Trader Joe's chocolate chip thread why don't we use this one to discuss cholov yisrael (or parve) versions of cholov stam foods?

For example, Kit Kat has a cholov yisrael imitation

« on: May 18, 2014, 08:32:15 AM »
I'm looking to buy a lower end watch such as Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Kate Spade, etc. Where's the cheapest I can get those for? I'm in NY but definitely willing to buy from a trustworthy site.

Credit Cards / All Inclusive Spreadsheet
« on: November 11, 2013, 09:45:13 AM »
I've seen some topics on the forum about spreadsheets used for credit cards and some helpful sites for miles. Did anyone compile one spreadsheet that keeps track of EVERYTHING? If yes, please upload a template!

Credit Cards / Trip to Europe...on points
« on: September 03, 2013, 01:50:20 PM »
I'm planning a trip to Europe (as of now Switzerland, Italy, and Paris) at the end of December and hope to do it mostly on points. I currently have 18,850 Starwood points and just signed up for the SPG AMEX so I should be getting an additional 30,000 soon enough. (I'm platinum status if that helps). I also have about 41,000 Ultimate Rewards points from Chase (Freedom card) and about 23,500 AMEX points.

What are the best credit cards to sign up for to get free/cheap airfare and hotels?


Deals/Deal Requests / Zipline Discount near NYC?

I'm looking to go ziplining but don't really want to spend such prices. Does anyone know of any discounts?

Tech Talk / USB hub for car
« on: April 23, 2013, 12:13:45 PM »
I'm looking for something to connect to the USB port in my car that will add extra ports. The ones I've found don't work. For example, if more than one device is plugged in, my iPhone wont play music through the speakers.


General Discussion / Lunch ideas - NYC
« on: April 12, 2013, 10:27:09 AM »
I gotta go for lunch with a non Jewish co-worker in the city on Sunday. I'm thinking of somewhere dairy but a bit classy. Any good ideas?


Credit Cards / what to do with $15K?
« on: February 06, 2012, 09:34:24 PM »
I have about $15,000 lying around. What would be the best place to keep it? I don't need access to it for at least 2 years. I'm wary of investing...

While I'd love to share it with all of you, comments about how to transfer it to your account really won't be that helpful :)

Credit Cards / transferring ultimate rewards points to continental
« on: January 31, 2012, 09:20:59 AM »
I read on these forums that you can transfer UR points to Continental and BA. I called Chase to do that and they said I need a Continental credit card (a OnePass account is not enough). Is there any other way I can transfer these points so that I can book a flight from somewhere other than their website? (Ideally I would want to transfer it to a Star Alliance airline...)
