Credit Cards / Lifemiles credit card
« on: November 29, 2016, 02:10:54 AM »
Thought it may be time the such a thread. Has anybody tried multiple applications for the card on same day? Since the issuing bank is new, I'm sure they'll be going through a learning curve. Dan, any chance you'll have a link for this card?

Credit Cards / Getting AMEX cards twice in lifetime
« on: September 17, 2014, 05:27:38 PM »
I have been using an ITIN to get credit cards because I'm not a citizen/ permanent resident. Once I get a SSN eventually, I can probably get all the amex sign up bonuses a second time because there's no file of me having amex under the SSN since I used ITIN.  Do you think it'll still work even if I merge my credit reports from the ITIN to the SSN?

Credit Cards / Getting refund processed on different cc
« on: June 12, 2014, 07:58:00 PM »
Does anyone have experience buying something on one cc and returning on another? Some retailers require one to swipe a cc upon a refund. What happens if it's a different card?

Based on what I read there are weight restrictions for carry on luggage on Thai and Ana . Do they actually weigh the bags?

Up In The Air / UA manual award ticketing time frame
« on: February 13, 2014, 05:23:11 PM »
I have a Ticket that has a confirmation no and says confirmed, but is still waiting administrative processing. My Cc and miles haven't been deducted and it has been 3 days already. Is this possibly a delay because airlines are tied down because of weather disruption?

One of the benefits of the US Airways credit cards are the 5000 mile discount for award tickets. Since the merger has started, is that discount applicable when redeeming dividend miles on American seats?

On The Road / renting hertz 24/7 without copy of license from ewr
« on: November 26, 2013, 03:06:11 PM »
I currently dont have a hard copy of my license. Its coming in the mail in a week. So I was thinking of renting hertz on demand since you just use the fob and take the car. But in EWR it is in the hertz parking lot. Will I need to present a hard copy of my license to get out? Or they dont ask for license copy for hertz on demand...or better yet. Will normal hertz accept a photocopy of my license to rent?
