Credit Cards / Re: Chase Sapphire Reserve BENEFITS master thread

I used it not too long ago on an item that was final sale.
Had to return the item to a third party warehouse, no shipping reimbursement for shipping the item to them.
Same experience, quite a pain as compared to AMEX.

Trip Reports / Re: Colorado 11 Day Trip with our Group of 11 (Part 1)

+1 for not excluding day trips from Denver.  We had only four days to spend in Denver and did day trips. Beautiful hikes and scenery all over.

It's all up to the schools. From the government's standpoint, they can go out like any israeli citizen.
That doesn't seem to be the case with the yeshivas in the capsule system this past zman.

It's complicated. My suggestion is to call in and get permission. If you file a NY return mention that- it should help your case.

@oldguy there are different rules for US employees traveling abroad as there are for US employees living and working from abroad.
So if someone works for an American company abroad why can they not file for UI? I understood from previous posts that if you are not physically in the US you are not eligible. Is that wrong?

At the present moment it seems that bochurim will be able to be on their own (within Eretz Yisroel) over Succos Bein Hazmanim as long as they keep to the general Israeli health restrictions (e.g. masks, social distancing etc.)
Is there clarity regarding this? Are seminaries also anticipating that after Succos the girls will be free to move around?

I was told by several people who reached out to me that they receive Federal Work-Study from BMG. Perhaps they were mistaken? I distinctly remember seeing BMG on the CARES Act list of yeshivos who received funding to continue Work-Study funding even if the yeshiva was closed.

As a general rule you can't have a scholarship without tuition/room and board fees- scholarships are meant to assist or cover tuition/room and board.
Maybe difference is between Kollel and single boys?

Yes, two people. How about using mobile check-in? Would that work?

Did you call the hotel directly?
Ur adding him as the second person staying in the room I did it a few times without issues.
Did not try the hotel, tried Marriott and the CSR said it wasn't letting her add anyone to the reservation. She put me on hold to speak with Bonvoy. I hung up. I also have done this before, no problems, this seems to be very strict now. I will try the hotel directly.

I just tried to add my son to a reservation using an e-cert and was refused. Is this something new?

This is NJ: https://myunemployment.nj.gov/before/about/who/schoolemployees.shtml
Note that in most cases you can file retroactively for summer break if the September employment ends up falling through.
The claim does not close, but I've seen in NJ that sometimes they give you problems when certifying after working or certifying after a break and you need to speak to an agent to clear up the issue.

Regarding high-risk:
https://www.dol.gov/coronavirus/unemployment-insurance
As a general matter, you are likely to be eligible for PUA due to concerns about exposure to the coronavirus only if you have been advised by a healthcare provider to self-quarantine as a result of such concerns. For instance, an individual whose immune system is compromised by virtue of a serious health condition, and who is therefore advised by a healthcare provider to self-quarantine in order to avoid the greater-than-average health risks that the individual might face if he or she were to become infected by the coronavirus will be eligible for PUA if all other eligibility requirements are met.
She'd need a doctors letter to stay on PUA for preventative reasons.
Thanks, that answers all my questions!
