Up In The Air / Hurricane Jose Travel Waivers
« on: September 18, 2017, 03:09:33 PM »
Sorry if this is the topic of another thread. I could not find anything.
@ Dan, perhaps you would post some tips on travel in the next 2 days on DDMS?
I am scheduled to travel into JFK on Delta tomorrow morning and return to ORD in the evening on JetBlue.
Is it likely that Jose will seriously disrupt all of this? I can't risk not getting bach for RH.
(DL sent an email with atravel waiver. I have not heard anything from B6)

Credit Cards And Finance / Best card for spending abroad
« on: March 03, 2017, 11:04:59 AM »
This question has been discussed here and there, but I don't think it has a dedicated thread, which I beleive it deserves.
From all these CCs that carry no foreign exchange fee, which actually have the best rate?
In the past I have been ripped off by Amex and got a courtesy credit via chat, but what is really the best card / bank  to use in other countries in terms of exchange rate?

Deals/Deal Requests /
« on: December 15, 2016, 12:18:01 AM »
There doesn't seem to be any thread dedicated to discussing experiences with them.
Today is the second time that they randomly chose to cancel an order of mine after having waited >30hrs + having being reassured by a rep that my order will be taken care of.
I have not done anything suspicious on my account and they did not provide any reason for cancellation.
I sent an email to, Will report back.

Anyone else have recent positive or negative experience with them?

Up In The Air / GOL SMILES
« on: May 25, 2016, 04:46:11 PM »
Unless I am missing something, I don't think this airline has a thread here.

I would like to make an account with GOL. The main advantage being that they are partners with many Skyteam and Star Alliance airlines.

Anyone have experience with them and their redemptions?

Do they charge YQ?

Do they allow pooling family members miles?

Do they have an English website? (Google Translate has it's limits - especially when trying to fill out the Portuguese registration form)

Goods For Sale/Trade / Looking to buy table top shtender
« on: April 25, 2016, 09:06:40 PM »
Looking to buy table top shtender with a storage compartment and (ideally) a door/flap for use when sitting down.

Along the lines of this, or even better, like this.

Maximum depth that would work for the table I use - approx 16".
I don't really want to spend more than $100.

Please PM if you have anything.

P.S. I considered this from Amazon but it's too big.
