It's earned by transferring (at least) 5k MR into Matmid account.
Main benefits include extra earnings on flights and better pricing on award flights.

Do you know if this is still active aka if I transfer 5k amex in you will be upgraded to executive membership??

Any one have any opinion for a Business account??

Currently use etrade (which is pretty good),  but Not thrilled  with their business suite. I found it to be majorly lacking

Wondering if some of you guys can help me out....

I was involuntarily bumped off a Scech Airline (operated by smartwings) flight from tlv to prg

they are only interested  in compensating me under European law (400 euro)
instead of the Israeli law which is  higher...

Additionally I didnt receive any accommodations/meals just another flight

So far the company has been really slow to responding to me
What can I do???

whats the cheapest way to call Israel landline and cell phones without a smartphone

+1 for using rebtel,
    FYI you can use rebtel as a calling card, they identify you based on the phone number you are calling from.
    An added benefit is that you get something called "Local numbers" which creates a virtual phone number allows you to call israeli numbers directly without using a calling card.

  you can use it on simple phones

guys can you help me figure out what to ask for?

Had a flight from TLV to PRG and got bumped off the flight due to them overbooking  (they were sent a smaller aircraft)

what compensation do I claim under EU / israeli law? (and which do I use)

also I ended up renting a car for a day can I include than in my compensation?

I found cheaper elsewhere, issue is that the site keeps kicking out an error
