Source?
read it too fast on my phone and missed the part of not being registered in the store. I thought he was asking if they could be used in a different state that doesn't have the card yet. My bad. I would still try activating one online.

My friend picked up 20 cards in Ohio but the cashier didn't know how to activate them. Once he has them can them be activated in NJ or online? Absolutely nothing was done to tem in the store.
yes

I got a hard set from costco too. It was similar to this one http://www.costco.com/Samsonite-Silver-2-piece-Polycarbonate-Hardside-Spinner-Set.product.100116082.html
I love the way it looks and how smooth it rolls with 50 lbs. I still have the set and love it but some pointers.
With a hard set you don't get outside pockets, it could get scratched. The one I got has 2 compartments on the inside. One that closes with a zipper and one that doesn't. It took some time for me to learn which side is down without all my objects flying out.
Also, for the smaller carry on, you should be fine flying domestic. It will fit on top despite what people tell you. I don't know about international flights. I've read reviews of people having to check in their carry on.
You also have to add a string or some kind of tag to know it is your bag. I thought my bag was so cool and different. Low and behold, someone on a recent flight had the same one as me.
Overall, I love my Samsonite and lifetime warranty at Costco  ;)

Just got mine. Tried seeing if there is a way to get a card without a SSN for my brother that is in the U.s. With a student visa they said they would not allow it
I've read on a different forum that you could get a temp by changing the social on the store and then when u get home to register you put correct social.

I tried splitting my $300 purchase between three cards for the MC GC + Amex deals and the clerk wouldn't let me use AU's - she said that if I split the purchase the name on all of the cards have to match my drivers license. Anybody else have this problem?
yes, I had the same problem in Staples Brooklyn on 5th Ave.

A shvim kleid will save many problems (aquamodesta or the like)  u could snorkel in it, swim and hike. Kauai has so many beaches. If ur looking for a guaranteed pritzus free beach go to polihale state park.  It's 12 miles long. But flying to Hawaii without going to other beaches or snorkeling is a waste of time.

Signed up for the United card in the bank but didn't give them a new United number. I did my spending but didn't get the signup bonus because I had applied for the same United card within 24 months.  Went back to the Banker and complained. He tried helping me, they promised him over the phone I'll get it but nothing happened.  I sent a secure message but they refused to honor it. I sent another message 2 weeks later and opened the message with a hi, how are you blah blah blah blah.  Just got a response that they will honor the 55k sign up bonus.

On my way to kaui from JFK. At JFK I asked them to send my bags straight to kaui but the lady at the counter said I'll have to pick up my bags St Honolulu and recheck to kaui. Is that true, do I have to go to baggage claim? Thanks

What days of the week are these?
I am arriving on Sunday and leaving the following Sunday eveninig.
Day 1 is Monday.
Days 1, 2, 3 are interchangeable depending on the weather; likewise for days 4, 5, and 7
I was just wondering if days 1,2 and 3 are too much.
I basically read the forum, book, used the app and plugged everything in on google maps.
Thanks.
