Credit Cards / If I downgrade reserve card to freedom unlimited....
« on: January 25, 2018, 12:16:26 PM »
anyone know what happens If I downgrade sapphire reserve card to freedom unlimited

1) does anything happen to UR points on that account or are they left as is ?
2) do you lose ability to transfer UR points to airlines ?

In regards to #2, does having a canceled sapphire preferred / ink on your profile change anything ?

Credit Cards / Moving personal credit line to Biz
« on: July 17, 2013, 11:43:36 PM »
I am thinking about moving some, or all, of the credit line on my chase personal card to my chase business card.

I read somewhere that that could be bad for credit score as the report now reflects less available credit thus a higher utilization rate, both on that personal card and overall.

Can anyone confirm or deny this theory?

Any help/tips would be Greatly appreciated.

I have heard great things about Air New Zealand's/Singapore's/Swiss business/first class.

I am trying to find availability using United miles but NEVER see business/first class seats available.

Whenever I see something that looks worthwhile when I select it I get a message "due to fast changing partner availability...this
flight is no longer available"...

Is it even possible to get such seats?

Has anyone here ever flown Air New Zealand or Singapore Airlines in business/first using United miles? If yes, HOW?

Up In The Air / Long layover in LHR - Lounge options?
« on: July 31, 2012, 05:05:10 PM »
Thinking about booking a flight - economy - through London's Heathrow (LHR) airport.

Flights have a 10 hour layover in London.

Anyone have some good suggestions for a lounge to use?
Do lounges typically let you stay for so long?

I have tons of BA points and was thinking of booking a dummy one way biz ticket to Paris for 10k miles and $25 fee just to get BA lounge access.
Any thoughts on whether that would work to get me lounge access for my layover?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Up In The Air / Comparison United Business VS Asiana Business
« on: July 26, 2012, 10:58:05 PM »
Hi All,

Traveling Sydney to LA:

Have option to fly United Business on a 747 400 thru SFO or Asiana business on a 777 thru South Korea.

The overall total flying time on Asiana is roughly an extra 6 hours.

How does one compare to the other?

Is Asiana so much better that its worth flying extra 6 hours?

Anyone have any experience with either?

Credit Cards / Cheapest place to buy Visa/Mastercard gift cards
« on: May 31, 2012, 12:38:22 PM »
Where is the cheapest (and safe) place to buy Visa or Mastercard gift cards that will count as a regular purchase towards meeting spending requirements?

I know Chase sells them but they charge $5 per card and the max per card is only $500.

Any better suggestions?

General Discussion / Stroller/Car Seat Travel Systems
« on: May 24, 2012, 12:37:45 PM »

I know there is another thread about strollers in general but I am interested specifically in a Travel System and I don't see much discussion of that in the existing thread so I am starting a new one.

Can anyone who has a Travel System comment on how they like it?

Any other advice/tips?

Anyone have any suggestion for the best online stores to check for prices?

I think we have it narrowed down to the Aprica Moto travel system or the Aerolite LX.
Anyone have any experience with either of those?

Tech Talk / Apple 4 from Sprint - Support Options
« on: May 01, 2012, 06:56:53 PM »
I am looking into getting the Iphone 4 from Sprint.

I am considering getting AppleCare as I tend to have bad luck with any tech device I get and could use the extra peace of mind.

As I'm sure everyone here knows, Sprint themselves absolutely has the worst customer service EVER!! ( I am stuck with them for technical reasons)

Anyways, my question is:

Is it worth it to get Applecare or is that a benefit I would get anyways by using an Amex card to pay the $100 (Iphone 4 cost with 2 year plan) to Sprint?

Is it easier to deal with Apple directly or Amex?

Any advice, opinions, etc.. would be greatly appreciated!
