Credit Cards / Re: Large spenders. Best startegy
« on: January 31, 2019, 09:16:15 PM »
Got it. Amex everyday preferred. Actually makes sense. Should be doing 30 transactions a month.
6mm/12 = 500k per month
Transactions are typically less then 5k. So Should be doing at least 100 transactions per month.
Chances are your not getting a 500k credit limit or anywhere near that on an EDP.  And cycling your credit that much would prob not be so good. With a BP you’re able to raise your limit with your spending pattern and in due time be able to spend that amount. Also, it would keep your balances off your personal credit report. Unfortunately since you said your charges are less then 5k you wouldn’t get the 1.5 bonus. If you don’t care for points perhaps the plum will be worthwhile or what category are you spending in?

Have a choice between 28k AF miles + $196 in taxes and infant fee (that ritz credit should cover) for RT flights on AF from LHR-CDG or pay around $550-$600 for RT Eurostar tickets.

Not sure where I am leaning more towards and was wondering if any of you could steer my towards the right direction?


Update: Chose train. For those who end up booking through eurostar don't forget to compare prices on the eurostar.com by switching the country website as prices can differ.

Ask for retention first. I got $150.
Took me a 2 minute phone call right now to get the same offer. Thanks!

How much should I tip my butler? He was very good with the kodher food especially
Who was your butler?

I heard $50-$150 was standard based of reading TA and other threads.

Enjoy! Also, might be helpful to request Nasyb as your Butler. He was absolutely amazing and was really familiar with the whole kosher food situation.

I did this by emailing them prior to my stay.

With the go pro mount
Make sure to read the reviews before buying to see if the mount works properly! Have got and returned several of them of which the mount feature is faulty and loose.

Try one out from BB?
Or amazon if you’re not a heavy returner and they can ship it to you fast enough.

Regardless, you are going to have the best time! Enjoy :)

Going to SR
They’ll just tell you not to use it. I’ve seen employees at the SR use their own drone as well to get pics and videos so I’m sure they’re not that strict. Just depends on how much you care about possibly inconveniencing other guests.

please, thank you
It’s not OWB. Easily found on the LM website is the description of the room:

“Recently renovated and located at the beginning of the pontoon, this exquisite bungalow with no direct access to the water offers great views over the main island of Bora Bora and the lagoon.”

It has access to the beach though... from what I hear they are very upgrade friendly if not at full occupancy.

thats what I thought but the classic guest room when I click on it says owb so wanted to see if anyone can confirm
I would check Flyertalk as don’t think many people have been to the LM. I can ask someone I know who’s there’s currently and get back to you!

Classic guest room by le meridien is owb?
I believe the standard award is not OWB but probably a garden villa of sorts.
