COVID-19 Discussion Board / Trip cancellation coverage for COVID
« on: December 20, 2020, 12:06:06 AM »
Can anyone recommend a travel insurance that will cover cancellation due to COVID? Most Iíve seen is if you get sick with Covid but not where a destination restricts entry to tourists due to the Covid pandemic. Any other ideas would be appreciated. This is for a trip to Israel in the summer.  Thanks!

On The Road / Bonvoy - larger rooms no longer available?
« on: November 20, 2019, 08:23:21 PM »
SPG usually had larger/upgraded rooms and suites that you could book for additional points. Bonvoy has this too for a little bit but seems that you can now only book a basic room with points. Any ideas on how to get larger rooms with points? Iím in the NY area. Thanks very much.

Credit Cards And Finance / Annual Spend Bonus
« on: May 03, 2018, 03:35:46 PM »
I recall that many cards had an annual spend bonus, but can't seem to find any current lists of annual bonuses for hitting spend thresholds on popular cards, other than SPG Gold for $30k. Can anyone point me to a good list or chart? Thanks!

On The Road / Hilton point expiration
« on: November 29, 2016, 12:25:04 AM »
My Hilton points expire in the next few days. They were earned by a stay last December at Waldorf Jerusalem. The point chart is unclear whether transfers in (from chase or Amex) will keep these points alive. Any other quick and easy ways to make sure these points don't expire? Thanks!

Up In The Air / Jetblue ticket prices
« on: June 01, 2015, 10:39:59 PM »
Could not find anything on this in the forums. When booking a family on Jetblue, does Jetblue average the price when there are more passengers than available seats at a price point or do they just bump the entire reservation to the next price level? For example, if they have 4 seats at 144 and you need 5, does it make more sense to book the four in one booking and then separately book the 5th or will you have the same total if you book all 5 together? Thanks in advance!

« on: January 23, 2013, 12:19:26 PM »
Is there a list of annual bonuses offered by the various cards and the required spend thresholds? It's always a struggle to remember which cards have the annual bonuses if you hit a particular spend for the calendar year.

Does anyone know how long it takes to transfer miles in a BA account from one account to another? (e.g. From my wife's to mine)? I understand it is permissible to transfer or combine family member accounts. Thanks!

Credit Cards And Finance / Chase ID Confirmation - public records search
« on: February 28, 2011, 11:27:55 AM »
This is only tangentially related to a debit card as it happened when I called to cancel my chase continental debit, but in order to verify my identity, they pulled questions about my father and grandfather from "public records." I was (and still am) outraged. If they want to ask questions about me or make me fill out security questions at the start of the account process, that's fine. But don't start data mining and pulling information "from public records" which may have nothing to do with the account holder.

Plan to take this up the chain to see where it goes, but it's just a terrible policy.
