I've read several of Dan's postings, plus lots of other stuff on DDF, but I still have questions related to Israel award travel.

For example, can someone please advise:

How is it possible to fly BOS-TLV on Aer Lingus?  I see BOS-DUB and BOS-SNN, but not DUB-TLV or SNN-TLV.
--Does one need to connect somewhere in continental Europe (e.g., DUB-LHR-TLV or DUB-CDG-TLV)?
--And if so, how to search it? (I tried searching on BA, but all that shows up is BA and Iberia).

Thanks very much.

Can this TD credit card be used to load TD Go card? And if so, will it count for points accrual? (Of course subject to the load limits of TD Go).

If there's a MCI-STL WS I may just have to try that out :)

There is excellent fleishik at Busch stadium, and as an afterthought you could watch playoff baseball.  We had a pastrami- wrapped hot dog there in August. Much more delicious than it sounds.

Ok, no problem, so I just need to get 12 of these cards.  ;)

Yup. Amex "upgraded" this card to the Blue Cash Preferred which has 6% cb at groceries, on up to a max of $6000 in spending.
So, the 5% across-the-board cash-back is defunct, but I can still get an Amex Blue Cash Preferred and get $360 back per month on buying $6000 in GCs each month at grocery store? At about $4.95 fee per $500 GC, that's $60 in fees to make $300 in cash.    Aside from having to offload the $6000 in GCs per month, are there any downsides?  Does Amex frown (i.e., issue FR) on this kind of spending? 
(And, apologies, if I should move this to a different thread, please advise.)

The majority of my MS is not for points, it's for unlimited 5% cashback so I need to buy the GCs at a grocery store or pharmacy.   So loading Serve directly from CCs has only a small appeal to me.    I live near a number of Walmarts with functioning ATMs and helpful cashiers so loading is really easy...

Am I too late to the party for 5% cash back?  May I ask which CC provides this?

you can load serve at Walmart just the same as you load bb
Oh, thanks. I guess I knew but forgot that.  So, only thing you give up is the check writing, which is kind of a nice feature.

@shlockdoc. Why are still with bb? Is the check writing worth more than $1500 a month of MS?

For me, BB is the devil that you know.  I'm reluctant to make the switch to SERVE because I just don't know what it would be like to deal with the loading at Family Dollar (or Dollar Tree or Dollar General or whatever it's called).  I guess it's inertia. It ain't broke so don't fix it.
