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


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 ( 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?"?

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?

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.
