Credit Cards / Is there a list of office supply stores?
« on: August 10, 2015, 01:35:36 AM »
Sorry if this is listed somewhere (I ran a search but did not find this exactly), but is there a list of stores that is categorized as office supply to get the 5% back with the Ink card? I spoke to Chase and they said they did not have a list, but that the stores categorize themselves..

Also, do any office supply stores sell ebay gift cards? What about Best Buy gift cards? I do a lot of buying there...


Credit Cards / What's my best move for 2 major purchases???
« on: September 30, 2014, 07:10:05 PM »
Hey All,

My company is about to make 2 purchases of about $45k each and are letting me put it on my card!

So what card/s should I sign up for to maximize my earnings??? It is a b2b purchase so don't think it qualifies for any 5x points with Chase....

Sorry if this info is out there somewhere, but it's been FOREVER since I have been on the forums and forgot my way around and need a pretty quick solution....THANKS!

Up In The Air / Matmid Benefits?
« on: March 03, 2013, 07:03:04 AM »
Does being a member of Matmid give me a better baggage allowance if I'm paying for the flight? If so, anyone have one of those links that Dan puts up for free membership?

Credit Cards / Lounge Passes?
« on: February 20, 2013, 05:38:59 AM »
What's the best way to score some free lounge passes? I am planning a trip from TLV-LAX with a stop (and a baby) and can really use some relaxation.

I thought the Chase Ink cards gave 2 passes a year for each cardholder, but now I can't find that link. Any help? Thanks

Up In The Air / Air Berlin Surprise Luggage Fee?
« on: November 06, 2012, 04:11:24 PM »
I booked round trip ticks TLV-LAX using my BA miles with Air Berlin. On my reservation online, British wrote that I was eligible for 2 bags per person- even the baby! Totally stoked I packed up and with only a slight pause at Ben Gurion to question my baggage allowance, Air Berlin let me through.

Then on the return leg they claimed that there was no such thing- that Air Berlin only allowed one bag per and that I had to pay $210! What is there that I can do about this??? I emailed BA, but they haven't gotten back to me- should I just cancel the charge on my cc?


Up In The Air / LA-Hawaii
« on: August 15, 2011, 05:31:52 AM »
Hey All,

I got the 100k BA signup and now I'm hoping to use it to get from LA-Hawaii during Succos vacation. I remember s/one posting that there is a way to use BA miles for Hawaii flights real cheap, but forgot how- any tips?


General Discussion / Free shipping to Israel???
« on: July 25, 2011, 05:27:57 AM »
Hey All,

I just moved to Israel for the year, and realizing it would be awesome to be able to order things online directly here instead of having my cousin's neighbor's dog shlep it in their 2nd bag. Any way or websites to get free or low shipping costs to Israel?


Destination Guides And Trip Planning / Toronto Quickly
« on: July 01, 2011, 12:34:17 PM »
My wife and I are staying overnight in Toronto on our way to Israel. Our flight arrives midnight and we leave to Israel at 1 p.m. so really we are just looking for a nice hotel for the night close to the airport with a shuttle back and forth. Any suggestions?

I have a few AMEX and Continental points left that don't add up to much anymore, so should I just use them up to book a hotel? Think we have time to hit up Niagara while we are there? Need to be at the airport by 11 for flight-how close is it to airport? Any buses or quick shuttles that go there or do we need to rent a car for that?


Up In The Air / Transfer Points?
« on: May 26, 2011, 05:00:02 PM »
Hey All,

I'm trying to book 2 tix LAX-Tel aviv in July on American and it looks like the only way that's gonna happen is if I book 2 award flights each for a total of 4 award flights with 2 of them on American Anytime miles. Basically each ticket is gonna cost 130k miles! I'm a little short on this and wondering what alternatives I have to just buying the AA miles from them at a steep price....

Can I transfer BA miles to AA somehow? AMEX? Any way to avoid paying a couple hundred bucks for the AA miles?

Up In The Air / Point of Matmid???
« on: May 25, 2011, 05:58:21 PM »
I signed up for the free matmid account through dan's link and am hoping to use it to help me book an AA award flight to Israel this summer, but I can't figure out how to work it.

I looked up award flights on El Al's website using my matmid account, and there seemed to be a direct flight LAX-Tel aviv available on award travel, but when I called AA, they said that they don't have anything. Help?

Credit Cards / Chase Business Ink Cash?
« on: May 04, 2011, 09:55:43 PM »
I got an offer in the mail for the Chase Business Ink Cash card. It seems to say that I get 10k points with first purchase, $50 for every 5k points, and no annual fee. Seems like an easy $100 to me, or is there some catch? Thoughts?

Credit Cards / clueless....
« on: May 01, 2011, 03:38:59 PM »
What does the ba link dan mean?

Does moving to Israel mean my days of racking up miles will be over? ;)

Is the british air card worth it for the 50k miles since i prob won't meet the threshhold? not a big fan of annual fees....

Up In The Air / Best mileage rates?
« on: April 29, 2011, 07:47:29 PM »
Hey all, any advice out there for booking mileage tix? I've got to book multiple round trip tix for the end of June (worst airfare of the year!) from NY to LAX (or Burbank) and I've got Amex, CO, and AA miles to use. Any tips on how to make the most of them??? Thanks!

Credit Cards / Alternative to selling miles?
« on: April 28, 2011, 02:04:40 PM »
Hey all,

Is there anyway to get $$ for miles without selling them? Do airlines and CC companies offer anything valuable in return? I'm new to this whole thing and not sure I'm so comfortable with the whole selling miles thing. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
