Dan didn't spill any beans by the dds. He isn't gunna kill a trick after what happened when he posted the phl-TLV-yyz $465 dump. You can look on hackmytrip for a basic introduction but don't expect anybody to hand anything to you on a silver platter especially in a very secretive subject.

Why doesn't she just wait till after the AOR? If she does before you get another pull and sometime after that the new account is reported.

Why does it not get you in A? If you can be in front of your computer exactly 24 hrs before your flight are you better off going that route?
AJK's link said it would check in for me but it never did so I checked in 20 hours before and ended up in B29!
There are a few reasons you won't be A1 even if you check in exactly 24 hours before:
Others on your flight have Alist status
Others paid $15 For early boarding
If you're flight is the second flight on someone else's reservation, they can check in to BOTH FLIGHTS 24 hours before their FIRST flight

You can also get gold from spend on the Spg cards or if you know someone who has an amex platinum. IMHO gold isn't worth much.

It was $1500 if you had 3 other people.
Just book a refundable flight and redeem arrival miles against it. Then refund it. Having arrival miles is No reason to buy status IMHO.

You also have to have an in-state license. Otherwise the whole BMG would be giving rides in philly
And your car has to be 2003 or newer.

I don't think you can unless your elite.CMIIW
You're definitely not protected by the DoT 24 hour cancellation rule.

Data point: my points posted in my ritz account and then I merged my ritz and marriott accounts.
My friend has the marriott CC and when he got the ritz he put in his ritz FFN.
But they put the points and gold status in his marriott account.
Not sure how this affects future churning.

You think if united would care to allow billing in DKK only for Denmark residents you would be able to simply switch countries like that? they can check your IP and know 99% what country you are in and auto route you to correct site.

I bet you anything if you asked united before this deal if they cared which country you choose for their site they would tell you to buy a ticket from any country you please. they have it for convenience - if for whatever reason you would like to be billed and that currency, nothing else. and it does not mean you have to be a resident of that country or even be there at the time of booking. This is plain and simple common sense.

This was a clear mistake with the exchange rate, that happen to manifest under the Denmark site. you can discuss the exchange rate mistake if it's ethical or not to buy something when you know the merchant made a mistake, but there was no lying or cheating involved here, plain and simple.

Use your head before you use your keyboard, Please
While I agree with you in this case, very often the sales city does affect price.
Especially in certain South American countries or Thailand.
I'm not getting involved in the ethics, just pointing out that some airlines care.

Does JetBlue refundable ticket charge for seat upgrades? Can you cancel online? Thanks!
Yes and yes  and IIRC tickets to bogota have the more expensive seat upgrades. CMIIW

The EC usually posts the next day or the day after that.
Also when you cancel it's not instant. It may even post after you cancel.

Do you know anyone that did this?
I did it twice a few weeks ago
I like booking right after midnight (morning in israel)
That way you have almost 2 days to cancel it as chase usually won't give you the $300 credit until the EC charge posts.

For this card you cannot do it with Delta only with JetBlue
Kind of.
You can book a delta non refundable ticket, upgrade to EC, and cancel before the next day is over. For example book it at 8am on Monday morning, and you can still cancel it Tuesday at 11:59 pm

The free night can only be used at Category 1-4 hotels.
Annual fee of $85 is waived the first year.
Great for families or road trips if you're OK with marriott 10-15k hotels.
This offer comes and goes every few months so you won't be missing much if you wait on it.(CMIIW)
