COVID-19 Discussion Board / Financial Assistance
« on: March 18, 2020, 08:59:58 PM »
As the craziness continues, there must lots of people who are struggling financially, whether it's from being laid off, business being closed or just no business.

If you know details of things like unemployment benefits, business loans, free personal loans or anything else, pleas post.

Being that DDF knows everything (or can figure it out) let's try put together as much info as we can that will allow people to get through this.

Mishneh Torah, Laws of Charity, 10:7

There are eight levels of charity, each greater than the next.

[1] The greatest level, above which there is no greater, is to support a fellow Jew by endowing him with a gift or loan, or entering into a partnership with him, or finding employment for him, in order to strengthen his hand so that he will not need to be dependent upon others . . .

« on: August 01, 2013, 04:24:10 AM »
Purchase up to 75,000 and receive 2:1.

Cost is 1.5 cents per point.

ETA: They have devalued their award chart without notice twice this year so nothing stopping them doing it again. Caveat emptor.

On The Road / Blackout Dates With Hyatt GP.
« on: December 27, 2012, 09:25:44 PM »
HGP always pitches that they have no blackout dates. However, when I tried using a Free Night in NY for NYE, I was told that in extreme peak times (e.g. NY NYE, Olympics, SuperBowl) there are blackout dates.

Spoke to at least 20 agents, including supervisors and they all say the same thing...

Anyone ever heard of this?

Up In The Air / Most Segments On UA Award?
« on: July 08, 2012, 10:20:11 AM »
Im trying to ticket an award with UA with 13 segments and apparently (the agent says) the computer is saying its too many segments.

Cant find info on max segments allowed (except RTW trips) so wondering whats the most someone has done?

On The Road / When C&P's is More Expensive...
« on: June 29, 2012, 05:55:45 AM »
This is a little warped way of looking at things. However,

St Regis Doha is a Category 6 new hotel which seems to have lots of C&P's availability.

Its quite rare for a Cat 6 to have C&P availability so it would seem to be a good value at 8,000 points and $150.

But look at the rate, 1,140.00 QAR   =   $313.021

Valuing SPG @ 2.2, 8000 = $176+$150 =    $326.00

I'm sure there's more examples, just came across this one.
