Up In The Air / Re: Aegean Air: 5k Free Miles for New Users
« on: December 31, 2020, 05:14:24 PM »
aegean is once again allowing transfers, however with a new caveat, you need to have earned miles from flying also...after crediting your account, it can take a few hours for account to allow transfers
Where are you seeing this? 
I  have an account with earned miles and still not letting me transfer

I saw on flyertalk that you need to vaccinate for typhoid and some other good stuff before going to CR . Is that accurate ?

How soon after you get approved are you supposed to get the 10 nights credit? I was approved a few weeks ago and only got 5 nights for 2020.
Also is there any good way to speed up getting the signup bonus after completing spend?

On The Road / Expertstayer ??!
« on: December 20, 2020, 09:24:50 PM »
We all know expertflyer is a website that alerts you if certain flight fare buckets become available and its a really useful tool to get premium seats at saver rates.

My question is why doesn't something similar exist for hotels?
The only thing I have found is a site called which supposedly alerts you if a specific room type becomes available to book with cash which would then mean you can book it with points ( for example with hilton if the standard room rewards room category in that property becomes available to book with cash then you know its also available on points for standard room rewards). However i found that its not at all consistent or accurate.
I found some guy on flyertalk  (heres the link ) on the IC thallasso thread who made his own script to search every 10 minutes and he managed to piece together a stay that way
Is there any legitimate website out there that can do this?
I have been trying to find someone who knows programming to write something similar to the flyertalk script but haven't found anyone yet
It can be as simple as that one which is basically a bot that does what you would do when using the hotels search engine or it can be something which uses the internal system (API) to do the saerch which would obviously be much more complicated but can technically be a real tool used by anyone like expertflyer but even the first option can be useful to many people if it can be customized.

Goods For Sale/Trade / Re: Marriott Certs Sale

I'm not a customer but upon reading the form it clearly says that the reservation IS NOT GUARANTEED
If anyone goes ahead with the purchase agreeing that they are paying for something not guaranteed then it's on them even if what causes the issue isn't his fault.
That being said.. that's obviously only if the buyer was provided the form before confirming the sale

Must be at least 50k  to get 1:1 ratio
Seems like it's possible to get good value on latam metal
One example JFK to LIM in business class for 31k
Any sweets spots for partners/alliance partners?

So in a nutshell... apply for the hyatt card now and use 33.75k pts to stay 9 nights checking out jan 1 (45k for 9 nights at cat 1 minus 25% rebate) = 18 nights and then complete the 6k spend for signup bonus anytime after jan 1 for 3 more nights plus the 10 from the new card promo and voila you've got globalist .
