The corn squares are nothing special IMHO, I'll have to try the oatmeal ones.

@eis517 was this sale at Bathurst & Wilson, or Centre?
Funny.  We like the corn squares more.

COVID-19 Discussion Board / Re: Lakewood covid cases

I had the same thing a few weeks ago. The woman asking for a COVID test is probably there because she needs proof of a negative test, not because she has reason to believe she's positive.

I can't tell if you are being sarcastic or not, but if she has no reason to believe she is positive, walking into a packed testing center without a mask is a great way to ensure she proves herself wrong.

The only way the NFL can potentially make it work is if players fly in day of game, go straight from plane to stadium, don't shower after, straight back to plane. Otherwise, if you have to factor in multiple busses, hotels, etc...

Credit Cards / Re: Chase Sapphire Reserve

yes

Thanks.  I assume I can buy gift cards at those places as well? How quickly does the credit go through?

Also, is Costco considered a Grocery store?

For the new redemptions of the $300 travel credit being used at gas and grocery, does that work in foreign countries as well? I live in Canada and want to use the card at grocery/gas.

Up In The Air / Re: BA Avios question(s)

someone cmiiw- if for domestic, you can cancel as long as it is more than 24 hours before the flight. Only lose the 5.60 taxes.
Int'l, also before 24 hours to flight, lose $55 or full amount of taxes, whichever is less.

Thanks  It is on AA flights for YYZ to MIA

I want to book flights using Avios for November.  If we end up not wanting to go, what is their cancellation policy? Is it different if we buy the tickets now because of COVID-19?

I do not live in the US (I am a US citizen) and can pay my kids tuition on my cc without a fee, but it obviously needs to be a card with no foreign fees. I already have Chase United, Saphire Reserve and a chase Ink.  What card(s) should I sign up for as I will be spending about 25K USD in the next couple of months and want to maximize my bonus.

Ideally, is there a card that will get me good status on either an airline or hotel for that spend?
