Trying to book a United ticket with Krisflyer miles from TLV to NYC and cant do it online.
On hold for over an hour with Krisflyer at 312-843-5333 and then it disconnected.

Any other numbers or ways to book this?

The online booking did not show the United Saver availability for my flight.  I called Singapore and they said all the flights haven't loaded into their system yet and they booked without a fee.

Was wondering why the tax is slightly more than on United.  5.60 on United ...about $23 on Singapore.

Question:
I have miles stuck in Singapore because it used to be cheaper to fly United to Israel using Singapore Miles than United.
It now costs 90000 RT in Coach.

I booked a one way for 45000 it cost 23.68 for airport taxes instead of the united fee of 5.60. 

From the US, what would you recommend would be the most bang for your buck for Krisflyer miles with the new devaluation?
Is Hawaii still a good bet?
Better for Europe via LH?

Thanks.

There is a special with 012 Global today that says $28 for 1-30 days  of BASIC...says unlimited calls, and 5G Data not sure if unlimited tex and $40 for a business plan which includes the basic plus call forwarding from your country.

Can anybody comment on whether they have used this and are satisfied?

I have used Unlimited Israel for short trips and have been very happy, this seems so cheap.

Appreciate feedback, this deal ends today.

Credit Cards / Re: Amex Platinum Master Thread
« on: September 21, 2016, 07:03:03 PM »
So I have had the Platinum Card for the year and have gotten benefit out of alot of the perks, such as airline fees and global entries.  But dont see the need going forward.  Will miss my SPG Gold status, however. 

I have an AMEX Everyday card.  If I keep that open, will my points automatically move onto that card and not be forfeited?
Is there any reason to downgrade the Platinum, and if so, is there any no fee card to do this with?

Thanks
