I just read through the thread and am still missing a basic understanding.

Can I transfer SPG or Amex MR to Quantas?

I checked my amex and spg accounts and their doesnt seem to be a way. Am I missing something?

You can pm me and I can send you info

Hi,

I just read the whole thread. I think the Sparks Card may be for me instead of Chase UR.  I dont get why Points are still valued so much vs 2% cash back. Its really hard to get 2% value these days on anything other than star-wood.

Do you have the contact info for the relationship manager? It would really be helpful as I need a large CL.

Not much "effort" involved in getting the JPMR. Then again, the added bennies you mention (aside from UA Club) aren't much to write home about either, so I guess it's a fair trade.

Wish they'd do something to distinguish it like the Centurion.

My experience was that it was hard, and definitely not a HUCA type of thing. Generally speaking They are really trying to limit this to 10mm people. Why? I have not idea as the card is not special other than what I mentioned. For me it  it means I can extract 1.5 in almost a cash like manner. But then again I happen to be stuck with Chase cards for business spending.

Same as CPC?
LOL.
Can get it with $100. Just need to know a banker.

It wasn't easy to get. It definitely required "pull". I dont have 10 mm lol. But I have deep relationships

The real reason I did it was due to the differences between the concierge services. JPM reserve I can use the 1.5 cent per mile value in a much more flexible manner. They can literally book directly with the airline or hotel or with Expedia or even directly to the hotel. (pay for your pesach hotel etc)

To me that was worth the effort to get it.

Also I'm getting United Club access for the same price as the Regular reserve card.

I just got the JP Morgan Reserve Card. to replace my regular Chase Reserve Card.
(I plan on posting on the forum in the JPM reserve thread to explain why I did this)

Dec statement closes on Jan 3, 2018.

Can I still get 300.00 credit for 2017, and then again in 2018?

Thanks Guys!

General Discussion / Prepaid Gift Cards for Charity
« on: December 15, 2015, 01:18:58 PM »
I belong to 501(c)3 that distributes charity to needy families. We are researching the possibility of giving out Prepaid Gift Cards/debit Cards instead of checks or Cash.

The reason's for this are:

To have the ability to control what the spending is on. For example if a family applies for assistance for certain medical expenses we would transfer funds to the card and if necessary actually use the card number to pay the medical expense. So Basically the Card/account belongs to the family  but we have authorized access to it-to login and see what was spent and sometimes to make actually purchases on behalf of the recipient.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what card would be appropriate?

Just booked last minute with SW to Fort Lauderdale for shabbos. Is there any options of hotels near shuls in fort lauderdale, with points or reasonably priced? I was counting on the diplomat, but that is not longer an option.
