Tech Talk / Re: Which Camera Should I Get? Master Thread
« on: January 26, 2015, 06:15:14 PM »
Can you recommend a water proof cover for my Sony a5000?  To be used for snorkeling, etc, but except scuba diving.  Also, sorry for the noob question, but I know nothing about cameras, and this is for my wife, and our trip coming up: does the memory card have to be Sony branded or can it be generic?  Thanks SF

Destination Guides And Trip Planning / Re: Maldives Master Thread

Maldives is one of the places I agree to: if you have to ask how much it costs you can't afford it

It's expensive, you can't go buy drinks in walmart, the resorts have no competition for all the extras, like dives, cruises, drinks.... you will have to pay what they charge

If you are stretching your budget to get there and will not be able to enjoy a coktail without thinking twice, maybe wait still a little to go there

That's a pretty fallacious remark.  Asking how much it costs, doesn't necessarily mean one cannot afford it.  Some people like to inquire, prepare, and save money while enjoying rather than splurging.  Isn't that why we're all on here?
FYI, after reading TRs here and FT, I booked for 6 nights in Feb, and we plan to do many activities when there.  Also, we are bringing trek mix and protein bars for mini-snacks as we eat small meals every 2-3 hours.  We plan on eating breakfast and early dinner, and of course, enjoy many cocktails.  There is no "budget."  We are just looking to stretch our dollar. 

Credit Cards / Re: A New Era For Citi Thank You Points
« on: January 22, 2015, 01:15:12 AM »
Could someone please chime in on how I can transfer TYP (that I earned from multiple Citigold personal checking and savings and CitiBusiness checking and savings accounts) to airline or hotel partners?  I keep being told by reps that I can't do it because they were not earned on credit cards.  Is there a way of which I could access these points for transfer purposes like a credit card or anything else?  I have a lot of points that I don't want to liquidate into gcs.  I'd rather use for travel.  :-\  TIA

anything kosher in la
Sorry, couldn't tell you.   :-\


Applicable to participating restaurants noted in the link.  They had this promo during the holidays.  It's legit.  I got the cash back and the cash back that I normally would have gotten without the promo.  I had 4 accounts and averaged 6 restaurants each day.  Buy gift cards!  So, whomever is in AZ and CA, enjoy!

Then why did he get an email?
I received the email too, but I had already used the offer last year.  Searched on my cards and saw nothing.

I have the offer on a double digit amount of cards. That's a lot of risk with possibly little return. Plus, no need to jump on it if the offer expires next month. You can play that game if it suits you. I only pull the trigger in this game with confirmation. Not worth the hassle if it actually doesn't work especially with the amount of cards I have offers on.

I've heard others confirming the same, but that's just an automatic reply to your purchase. Has anybody else confirmed that they in fact received the credit? When you do can you tell me pls? I have it on multiple cards too.

ordered 6 GC's on 6 cards!
Is it for sure that you get the cash back though? Is that confirmed?

If you'll be taking videos I'd go for at least a 32gb. And Amazon usually has pretty competitive prices.
We decided to go with a 32gb like you said just in case we decide to take videos. Do you know if there have been any deals as of late?

Really having a hard time on my MLE-LAX segment. How much should E/Y price out for MLE-AUH-LAX or CMB-x-LAX? with AA miles? I called AA and they priced the former for 45k pax and the latter for 35k pax. Plus, there's a $35 charge pax. Is this correct? I'm looking for something to work on the 16th or 17th of Feb. Please help!

LAX-NRT-SIN-MNL flight plan on SQs site for 60k KF + $757 or LAX/SNA-SFO-ICN-MNL for 80k UA + $29.40 on United? Is it safe to say that the latter is a far better choice even if there is a 20k point difference (yet a huge $ difference)? Is there anything better than what I just found?

9:45 pm is the only time slot left for Sunday dinner, but magic starts at 6 or 7, so best to go (allowable) during that time to experience all of the random and planned performances that you may miss.  There's just so much going on.  Last week we were there from 8pm-1am next day.  Let me know if that will work for all.  Lastly, I suggest to email the manager in charge of the kosher options at for specific questions.  I have already left a message again on her VM and emailed her, so hopefully I can get more info by tonight.  Let me know what you find out from her on your end if she reaches you before me somehow.

Can we see kosher food options before confirming? Where they would be getting it from, what it is, etc?

Also, what time would it be?
Sure.  Let me check on the food, and let me see what times are available.
