On The Road / $50 Buys a $100 Travelocity Hotel Gift Card
« on: February 09, 2011, 09:38:21 AM »

Looks like it can be used at travelocity incentives which is a little more restrictive than travelocity, but seems like a good deal if you need a hotel for sure

« on: February 04, 2011, 11:12:28 AM »
Just saw this.  People have said they have been given a year of SPG gold status by calling up 1-888-625-4990 and mentioning code UI.

Additionally, people have been doing it online by going to, clicking on Customer Support-->Online Chat and making the same request.

Up In The Air / Infant Travel
« on: March 11, 2010, 01:30:41 PM »
My daughter will be turning 2 while we are in Israel and I am wondering if anyone knows of a list of airlines that will allow me to have her as a lap child on the way out and in a seat in the way back

I know BA gives you a seat for the return, without paying for a full seat.  I see this on their website

"If you are travelling with an infant who reaches the age of two during their journey, you must book a separate seat for them for any flights on and after their birthday.  The fare charged will remain at the infant rate for the entire journey, regardless that a seat has been booked for some flights.  Bookings should be made according to the age of the infant at the time of travel. You will need to contact us so we can ensure that your child has a seat after their 2nd birthday."

Any other airlines out there like that?

Up In The Air / Looking for a team captain for Delta - Together We Fly
« on: March 05, 2010, 01:05:48 PM »

My wife and I are both flying JFK - TLV next week and are looking to join a team that has a captain in MI, MN, TN or WA.  If my math is correct, we can contribute about 11,000 miles each.  Please let me know if you live in one of those states and would want to be a captain.


Credit Cards And Finance / Schwab Account
« on: January 27, 2010, 04:57:56 PM »
So i am planning on opening a schwab account to take advantage of the 2% CB card and the no transaction/financing fees for when I am in Israel for 6 months.

Anyone know of any offers where I can pickup some miles for opening an account?

I've seen plenty of TD Ameritrade, Fidelity and E*trade accounts, but never a Schwab.

Credit Cards And Finance / credit card / atm in israel

I'll be going to Israel for six months starting this March.  Does anyone have any recommendation on a bank account and credit card to open in order to avoid hefty fees?  I already have a SPG card and BA Visa card.  My current bank accounts are with chase and hsbc
