Yesterday Amazon added to my account $10 as "prime day reward". Since then it fails to apply any discount on S&S items. Anyone experiencing a similar problem?

Credit Cards / Google Express Costco purchases - wholesale club category?
« on: January 24, 2017, 09:43:51 AM »
I just received a message from Discover confirming that Google Express Costco purchases do NOT qualify as wholesale club category for 5% cashback ( purchases do).

It is my understanding that Chase Freedom did consider these purchases as wholesale club when they had a similar category.

Up In The Air / Fake prices at
« on: December 17, 2016, 09:24:45 PM »
I've been trying to book a DTW-LGA flight for Feb. 6, returning on the same day.

Searching on yields a few options priced at $83.10 RT. Obviously a steal.

However, when any of these are selected, after entering passenger details, the price increases significantly. It's been like this for the past few days, so it's not an issue of someone taking away the seat in the last minute.

Up In The Air / AA award availability with Iberia Avios

Up In The Air / Delta to El al luggage transfer
« on: May 15, 2016, 05:49:00 AM »
I'm flying Delta DTW-AMS on business (award issued by Virgin), connecting to a separate ticket El Al AMS-TLV on economy.

Will the Delta agent be able to check my luggage all the way to TLV? If so, am I limited to one piece because the second leg is economy?

Also, will I be able to use any lounge at AMS?

I just got off the phone with a Virgin Atlantic agent, trying to book a Delta DTW-FCO business class flight with their miles (I checked first to make sure that the lowest Delta rate was available for the dates I requested).

Her response was that this route was simply not available for redemption. According to her, Delta only releases certain routes for redemption with Virgin miles, and that route is not one of them. There is no available list of those routes, and the only way to find out if a route is available is by calling them and having them enter it into the system.

Has anyone experienced this before? Is this practice documented anywhere? Is there any way around it?

Up In The Air / Delta special inventory for partner awards?
« on: May 12, 2015, 11:18:52 AM »

Delta appears to have special "low" inventory for partner awards. You may find slightly more availability using a partner to book on Delta at "low" level awards versus the SkyMiles program.

Can someone confirm this?

Is it special inventory searchable online? Where?

Does anyone here get PreCheck when traveling on AA using an Avios award ticket?

I have a Nexus card, I keep entering my PassID in the reservation, but I am never able to get it.

Credit Cards / 3x Amex Gold when booking through Orbitz?
« on: August 30, 2013, 05:42:31 PM »
As per Dan's recommendation here:

I purchased US Airways tickets to Israel through Orbitz using my Amex business gold to earn 3x points.

The charges posted today as Orbitz charges (not US Airways charges), and no bonus points (which usually post immediately unlike base points).

Any clarification on the matter?

General Discussion / Missing rebate / UPC copy?
« on: March 08, 2011, 03:02:47 PM »
I never received the rebate for the LG HBM-235 (

They claim they havenít received my submission. I googled a little and found out that they did this to many people.

They still gave me the option to resubmit by fax. Unfortunately I didn't keep the materials. Does anyone have a copy of that UPC code?
