Hi. My wife and I have solid credit and would like to start stockpiling the best points for a trip to Israel.
We have the saphire preffered and reserve cards but live in ny and southwest (seeemingly the best airline for the ultimate rewards points) is not great from local airports.
I have heard Avios from British airways is good but cannot find a single post on the site re: this topic.
Can you suggest our best options? thank you!
Search on DDMS for the post of best points option to Isreal and that would be very helpful

I think most of their flights get diverted to Malaysia where if you have any Jewish or Israeli resemblance they'll lock you up in a dungeon.
Only happens a few times a week it's not every flight.

Which bonus should I go for that has a 3k spend or less? I'm under 5/24. But it doesn't have to be a chase cause of 5/24 as I barely signup for cards. Thinking of the united or amex delta maybe southwest. Thoughts?
United at 50k is worth the most

You just passed feel free to spend as much as you are allowed

+1. Yesterday before 7 they were sending everyone home b/c the computers weren't working.
Now I heard the fridges and freezers are down
Bingo hired Russian hackers to take out the power?

In case anyone thought it was a passing fad. I'm there now. Regular Wednesday evening. Absolutely packed. A few cashiers are closed. The rest have a line.
Wednesday is a big shopping day as people will start cooking Thursday morning.

anyone ?
If they put limits that means they got the transcripts.
Who cares? As long as you passed the F/R.

Cut the non-sense. They aren't frum. Period.
The whole problem is, is that they claim they are.

Crazy me just finished through the entire thread...

What's the name of the casino next to 4P Fallsview where people park?

For non-Shabbos nights, it seems like there is a debate as to the nicest points hotel - Embassy Suites, Sheraton on the Falls and Hilton. Hilton seems to have the worst views of the 3. Embassy is closer to 4P so can just leave car there, but Sheraton might be closer to more activities (if I am looking at the correctly). So, want to rehash this once again?
Maybe try reading the thread again

My Father has been with Amex over 20 years. His  accounts were under F/R, He Tried calling his manager several times after he submitted his docs and she never responded. Today he received a notice that Amex shut his accounts.
His tax returns show sufficient funds to pass.

1) What are the chances of Amex reinstating the accounts? there is no reason why he didn't pass. (He lost 200k MR)
2) If they reinstate the accounts will the points be reinstated?

The points are not lost, you could still call MR and have them transfer it.

Regarding reopening try calling the FR department and say you can't reach the rep, and if you get thru to your rep ask for a supervisor

Got a 100,000 platinum card bonus offer. Is it worth going for it?
I don't have any amex cards at the moment.
Why not? Maybe add some more
