Up In The Air / Unable to check in - Delta
« on: February 28, 2016, 11:11:56 AM »
Does anyone know what this means?

Sorry, your check-in request cannot be completed.
Travelers entering the U.S. under the Visa Waiver Program are now required to have a travel authorization (ESTA) on file with the U.S. Government.
You will need to request or check the status of your travel authorization.
Once the ESTA is on file, you can return to complete check-in.
Certain documents, such as a U.S. resident card may not require an ESTA to be filed. If you hold a resident card or re-entry document for the U.S. and ESTA is not required, you will need to check-in at the airport.

Credit Cards / Venmo 3% fee for cc
« on: October 14, 2015, 11:39:12 AM »
I know that 3% is pretty steep but for simplicity purposes I had arranged with a friend to add me as an au and then I sent him $1000 to meet spend threshold on a chase card. I realizeda after that chase uses the same card number for au though..not sure if that matters. But he also withdrew the venmo to his chase checking account. All those things combined got me worried that itll raise a red flag. Should I be worried?

General Discussion / Paying Taxes
« on: July 23, 2015, 12:33:14 PM »
Does anyone ever run into trouble not filing taxes on selling points or certain types of MS?

For example, I sent a family member $5k using a payment service (2.5%). They contacted me saying that in order to complete the transaction I must confirm that this is for either goods or services. I said it was and the payment completed. Were they saying this for tax purposes?

And when receiving large payments for points sold, does anyone ever run into trouble not paying tax on that "other income"?

Credit Cards / [Canada] Amex Churning Is Over - New Terms
« on: July 01, 2015, 03:19:52 PM »
Amex Canada recently copied its US counterpart and stopped backdating the cards' Member Since date. They also set an annual limit on how many referrals you can do (15 per year). Did they put a fork in churning as well?!

Old terms:

General Discussion / Acquiring a NY Drivers Licence
« on: May 18, 2015, 11:04:43 PM »
I am a Canadian citizen with a F1 student visa, which makes me a legal alien resident. I was able to get ahold of a SSN. Although I had issues getting Serve/Discover to approve my apps because they wanted US gov issued ID. I was able to work it out with them, but I fear that for "real" applications it might become an issue.

I looked into getting a NY drivers licence, apparently its doable. However, they "cut up" your Canadian licence.....So can I just just order a new Canadian card on my way out of the office? Or better yet, just order one preemptively. I don't want to give up my licence or anything.

Any suggestions? Will I probably not be asked for gov ID by Amex/Chase?
