Up In The Air / Re: Credit Cards for Airlines for trip to Israle
« on: July 20, 2018, 12:49:11 PM »
Hi,
I don't know if I am being realistic or not, but I would love to be able to take my family to Israel for this Pesach.
Which credit cards for points would be best?
Approx how many points do you need for an international ticket?

Thank you very much!
In general I think it's more economical to buy the revenue ticket than to spend the points. The value per point that you receive on flights to israel are usually pretty low.

I don't think most people would decide to go or not to go somewhere based on the Nussach of the minyan alone. I've never heard of a Posek insisting on that. I'd be happy to see a source that says differently.

Not to mention that if one is concerned about potential Halachic issue, the lack of a real Tzeis for Motzei Shabbos is probably a more significant Halachic concern than whether the Shat"z will say Hodu before or after Baruch SheAmar.

hes busy looking for an ashkenas minyan in Antarctica
Some people care about ashkenas minyanim, other people care about printing tanyas in random places. Can't we all get along?

Bump.
I don't know but why don't you just transfer the points to account with matching name? They allow you to go over the 50K transfer in order to purchase a travel package.

@Dan @Something Fishy Will we be guaranteed to see Polar bears in the south pole?

I would want a refund if we don't see any.

Thanks!

P.S. What is the cost? And will there be a daf yomi shiur? Will you be printing a tanya on the trip? Will the chef be shomer shabbos?

P.P.S. I can't afford this but I'm willing to wash dishes one night a week on the trip, does that work?
You can make fun, but you're the one going for free...

Lots of sarcastic remarks. I don't see the point in bashing a trip that Dan and others have clearly spent alot of time and thought putting this together.

"Have a ton of miles to burn? We can also work out a method to pay for the cruise with them!"

How many points?

Yes, on 1 week trial account. I received email from amazon this morning.

Credit Cards / Re: Chase Reconsideration
« on: July 17, 2018, 03:25:09 PM »
I was declined for having the product within 24 months. How does chase count the 24 months - from the day the reward was issued or statement close of when it was issued? There's like a 3 week difference for me.

Darn my order was cancelled.  Any good deals in prime day special for something like this?
