Where can I max the q3 spend for GCs I can liquidate? Just got back into town and today's the last day.  :o

Not sure. If there are no flights available, and you want something not too expensive, a train may be a good option.
OK, I found 2 itineraries, and let me know if BA would merge them together in one. 9/19 LHR-DUS 07:20-09:40 on BA and DUS-MUC 10:20-11:35 on AB. They price out at 4k Avios + $27.50 and 4,500 Avios + $39 pax respectively. The worry that I have is the 40 minute buffer being too short, so I would like to merge so that they transfer our checked-in luggages to the next flight. If they could do it, that would be fantastic as flights are pricing out at $250+/- ow pax.

BA.com is the place to look (or aa.com for Air Berlin, but will be the same availability). The only thing is that if you're looking for flights with connections, it's best to lookup each segment separately. If there is no availability then there is no availability.
Already looked on BA and AA.  You are right though; I should check segments.  I haven't been able to find anything direct.  Have any clue what segments I should look into?  I'm trying to keep away from the cash $250+/- ow pax.

I'm looking on googleflights and see BA partners (AB and Iberia) for London-MUC and MUC-London, but ba.com does not show any availability for any of the dates that my wife and I need to fly.  Do I now look in Iberia's, AB's or AA's site to find availabilities? I hope I'm doing it right.  If you can help lead me to the right place and the process or just help me outright, I'd appreciate it.  The info is as follows:

One way/Round trip: RT but if it is better to book 2 separate OW, then the latter
Non-stop/Maximum stops/Any: Any
From: London
To: MUC
Departure dates: 9/18 late or 9/19 early
Return dates: 9/20 late or 9/21 very early (we have an EY12 first apartment flight at 09:30 on 9/21, LHR-AUH is why)
Class: Coach
Seats: 2
Alliance/Airline:
AA - 105k
DL - 35k
BA - 11k
UR - 90k (would rather save these for Hyatt stays)
MR - 205k

Thanks for your help!

Wanna help me out on this one?  :P

One way/Round trip: Either
Non-stop/Maximum stops/Any: Any
From: LHR or close proximity airport
To: MUC
Departure dates: 9/18 afternoon or later or 9/19 early
Return date: must be at the latest late evening 9/20 or 9/21 super early as our EY12 LHR-AUH is 9/21 at 9:30am
Class: Coach
Seats: 2
Alliance/Airline:
AA - 105k
DL - 35k
BA - 11k
UR - 110k (would rather save these for Hyatt stays)
MR - 205k

Thanks!

Personally I'd try to hold out for Etihad Apartment availability, but great! ;D
That's our LHR-AUH flight 9/21! ;D Trust me, I've been looking for the AUH-LHR flight on EY11, but the former was all I could find for the past month for 2 people.

37
Nice find. That definitely looks like the cheapest option. And yes, that's how AA works.
Awesome.  Booking now.  Thanks for your time.

Gulf Air probably has availability via BAH, though the only way for me to check would be to call up. Would be 20k pp with aa or 24.5k with ba. One advantage of booking with ba would be no additional $75 close in fee. Also keep in mind that even if there isn't economy availability with GF, there is almost certainly business available with GF, which is not a terrible value at 30k aa.
Thanks.  I just found BA for 16.5k + $73 pax AUH-STR-LHR with AB and BA.  What do you think?  Cash is $398 pax so award is definitely the go-to.  BA seems to be better choice between AA/BA because of close-in fee and more AA miles.  Have any other options, or should I just jump on this?
Also, is the way AA works this: economy-20k, biz-30k, first-40k for middle east to europe?

One way/Round trip: OW
Non-stop/Maximum stops/Any: Any
From: AUH
To: LHR, BRS
Departure dates: We arrive at AUH on 9/15/15 at 19:40, so very late that day or 9/16/15 as early as possible; will try to be flexible, but trying for these dates
Class: Coach
Seats: 2
Alliance/Airline:
AA - 105k
DL - 35k
BA - 11k
UR - 110k (would rather save these for Hyatt stays)
MR - 205k

Thanks for your help!

It's been just about 30 days and it tells me that the rebate has expired.
That's weird.  It's always been 60 days.  What'd you buy and was it online or in-store?

Use them anywhere that you would get only 1 ppd.  You already got 5 ppd when you bought the item at Staples with your Ink.
Thanks! Nice to be back on again.  Super busy lately!  How have you been?

You can load them onto a serve or red card, the same as any VGC, no?
Can no longer do this as Target does not accept credit any longer for loads.  The rebate cards don't apparently have pin capabilities.

How do I liquidate Staples Visa Rebates these days?  I have hundreds of $ worth of them.

42
Do staples easy rebates expire? Meaning if I bought an item that qualified for an easy rebate at the time of purchase, can I submit the rebate 2 months later? Or does the submitting time period end?
You have 60 days from date of purchase to submit.  It should be on the receipt in-store or the rebate offer link should provide that info.

I dont see any of the kosher ones. You just get the not kosher ones and sell the gc? Or lots of drinks? :)
I donate (write off), sell (off the books), gift (write off), use for taking clients out (write off), or use.  Wife and I haven't paid out of pocket for food besides some fine dining here and there for almost a year now.  Grocery bill has decreased immensely as well.  We have so much free food, my wife has recently forced me to work out every day now.   :P  haha

44
can i somehow order GCs from them without being present?
You have to get to know them.  Sometimes I do get away with it as the managers/employees are cool about it at first convo.  Sometimes you have to go in so they meet you and realize it's not a scam.  YMMV really.
