Up In The Air / Re: ELAL Matmid - how to accumulate points?
« on: May 15, 2014, 03:24:12 PM »
1. Don't use matmid program
2. Open an AAdvantage card and get to Israel on El Al for 80/90k RT
3. Don't use matmid program

;D

Ok - got it!

This will sound like a really stupid question: I signed up for AAdvantage - NOW WHAT? how do I get a credit card that will give me AA points?

Up In The Air / ELAL Matmid - how to accumulate points?
« on: May 14, 2014, 03:48:12 PM »
How can I accumulate points for the ELAL Matmid account to be used towards a free flight?

I saw on the website it says you can exchange "American express (Israel)" points for Matmid points. What if I got an american express card to use in Canada?

Sorry if this is dumb question, I am just trying to figure this stuff out. I am trying to get a discounted ticket to israel and not sure what the most effective way to go about it is.

Do u have any student card?
If not go in to any bank (I did Scotia) get a card.
Then in six months apply for a  Amex platinum

I do have a student card for the school I go to.

I currently use Presidents Choice financial - I went on their website and requested a MasterCard (http://www.pcfinancial.ca/whyjoin/) they offer rewards in grocery credit...something I don't need...but are you saying that it doesn't really matter which card I have for the first 6 months and then I should apply for amex and start accumulating real rewards?

I am confused as to how this all works. Sorry for all the questions.

I also just figure it was the simplest to request a credit card from the bank I use already, even though it doesn't seem like a great rewards program. It also seems like I can just order it online. But should I look around for something better at another bank?

It is really frustrating trying to find a points card to start off with. I have spent hours researching and almost all the information on here seems to be US only. Does anyone have any suggestions? Whats about "American Express Aeorplan Gold Card?"?

Yes, I was inquiring about cards for Canada. Any suggestions?

That can only help u in Canada, not in America
I have about ten cards in America now, 6 months ago I opened a students card in Canada six months later hot my first platinum amex.
So student card helps

thanks for the info!
so can anyone suggest one specific card that I should apply for??

specifically if someone could suggest the most effective card for accumulating points that can be used towards a flight to ISRAEL - whicheaver airline ticket that could be acquired the fastest - that would be great!

Credit Cards / First card a miles card?
« on: May 12, 2014, 06:32:13 PM »
I have had a credit card linked to my parents' account for the past few years. I am looking to get me own credit card as I am 19 now, the only issue is that I don't have any credit rating so I was wondering if it is still possibly to get a card with decent rewards in terms of MILES. I would like to use them towards flying to Israel eventually. Sorry for the stupid question, I would really appreciate some useful advice from the professionals on here.

BTW, I am a canadian citizen.
