Copyed from boarding Area

"Apparently this whole SMS thing is a pretty popular
technology these days. Seems that it would be useful to
have the various tools available from the Wandering
Aramean Travel Tools site able to understand and interact
with SMS messages, so they now can do precisely that.
There are two main areas where the SMS interaction is
available today: Search and Alerts.
Search
Wondering what the next flight out is between a city pair? Or
if there are seats available on it? Timetable and Inventory
searches are now available. After configuring your account
for SMS you can send a message to 678-619-2637
(678-61WANDR) and it will explain the query syntax to you
for these two functions. As you can see in the screenshots
below, it is a pretty simple syntax overall. It will reply back
with up to 5 SMS messages containing the response to your
inquiry.
Additional search functionality is on the horizon; if there are
any particular functions that you want to see in the tool let
me know either via email or in the comments here.
Alerts
There are two main areas where the Travel Tools Alerts
have been most useful recently, both focusing on flight
inventory. If you want to receive those notifications via SMS
not you can do that.
For the Star Alliance award search alerts the full details of
the award arenít included in the SMS; there is simply too
much information there to try to consolidate it in to 155
characters. Instead the alert includes a link to the search
results (in a mobile-friendly UI) so you can quickly see what
the award results are.
For the Flight Inventory Alert (searches for a specified fare
bucket on a single flight) option the alert actually includes
the specific flight and inventory details so there is more
information to act on directly there.
Like most things in life, there is a catch to this great new
functionality: you have to be a First Class member to get
access to it. I would love to make this freely available to
everyone but the SMS gateway system actually has costs
associated with it and I have to cover those costs or none of
this will exist. That said, if anyone wants a 15-day free trial
just let me know and Iím sure I can make that happen."

Credit Cards / Harmony Bank: .8% Interest Yield Checking Account
« on: May 11, 2012, 10:56:41 AM »
I was wondering if anyone has any experience with them

They used to offer 1% on a free interest checking account.
No minimum
No max
50 Free checks
and the rest of the benefits that checking accounts offer

Now they went down to .8%

Still very good, and your money isn't locked, what do you think?

Facebook on Thursday set the estimated price for its initial

prospectus. At the midpoint of the range, the social
networking company is on track to raise $10.6 billion, in a
debut that could value the company at $86 billion.

Credit Cards / Buying Gas using Credit Card @ Cash rates
« on: February 28, 2012, 02:49:12 PM »
This in unconfirmed, but the idea is as follows:
I heard that if you buy GC at BP Gas, then use them to pump, the rate they charge you is the cash rate, not the Credit Card rate.

If this works I would go in buy $1500 of these cards, on my Freedom card as well as my wife.

1)I would have the first $1500 spent on the card is on gas... with 5% back.
2) I would get gas at the cash rate VS. the Credit Card rate.

My first trip report that I'm making, trust me I have many more to go :).
I got married in Lakewood. I wanted a suite for the wedding night, but one with two beds. I narrowed my choices down to 2. Hyatt Regency in Princton  (45 minute drive) or Embassy Suites of Piscattaway NJ (52 minutes away).
After looking at pricing, HR was in the $400 range, while the ES was in the $200 range. I decided to go with the ES. After spending time googleing coupons/codes I found a MVP HHonors discount I quote it for the boys "Code for Hampton, Embassy Suites and Doubletree Hotels:
056004160Code for Hilton, Hilton Garden Inn and Hilton Grand Vacations:
N0041604"
I decided to go with the ES. After using the code it turned out to be $158 after tax. A pretty good rate after tax (I also got the bonus miles as I'm HHonors Gold.
The drove there felt like 52 minutes, a little long. (Route 9 North, until a litle passed GSP, and its another 20 minutes from there).
I called before to let them know that I will be arriving close to 1AM. I also told them its my wedding night bla bla bla and got a 2PM late check-out.
No problems checking in. BTW the lobby is very nice. There is waterfalls, walkways and trees I would recomend this place for a date.
The rooms were big. The first room had a table and chairs, nice. Fridge, sink (coffee machine), big TV recliner and couch. The couch looked like it came from my great grandmothers house (1950 cloth style) uch!
The bedroom also had a sink with counter.The bed were comfy but the linen felt old.
The bathroom was roomy. The shower was big, and had good pressure. It was also equiped with all amenities.
We really enjoyed our stay there
Overall I would recomend this Hotel.
A word of caution the parking lot was packed!
