Do I need a converter if I am coming from US? Meaning, will every hotel in Paris have converters and adapters for my use if I bring my laptop and cell?

Went through steps. Why hasn't the 500 points posted?

Credit Cards / Re: Amex Financial Review

My wife got the 4506-T from citi relating to a NEW CC application she made (she presently has no Citi CC cards).

I called now and was told that if I ignore it, they will not process my application, which will clear the system in 90 days and it won't affect our credit.

I was told that the recent hacking of citi has caused them to issue these requests a lot.

1) If I ignore the 4506-t reuqest and dump the app, will it trigger a FR on other citi CCS, like my own?

2) If she reapplies in 90 days, will it sutomatically trigger the same request?

is there any benefit from sigining up, if I have a visa signature card, but I do not intend on staying at a hilton through the promotional period?

I'm actually interested in Chase too. I applied yesterday for the Saphire and was told they would get back to me.

I would like Southwest, Hyatt (which i'm going to wait until i hit SPG Platinum shortly, so I can use the status match).

I feel confident that I will get in with Saphire.

How long after should I wait to apply for these cards and maybe another 1 or 2 chase cards?

BTW, I already have a BA and United Card for years.

On a side note, should I cancel my BA and/or United and apply for another with miles promos? I don't want to use my spending limits which unfortanately I need to use...


Thanks to all.

I just used the 2 browser method (chrome and IE).

Applied for 50K platinum using modified URL (thanks AsherO), and SPG.

Hit "Submit" seconds apart.

Got instant approval on both.

Will wait to activate and use both before calling Platinum for upgrade to 100K.

I'm learning...

The only thing i'm confused about is the 2 different codes listed in the OP labeled "older" and "newer". What's the deal?

Step 1: remove cookies
Step 2: edit URL and apply and get approved
Step 3: call and give them offer numbers and ask them to match

Sounds right?

Why when I click on link in OP it brings me to 25K offer?

Do you mean that I may get approved and not get the miles?

All this about Chase sounds great.

What about citi AA?

I applied for 4 cards 2 days ago (2 personal and 1 each for 2 separate businesses).  Unfortunately, same browser, each one minutes apart) - got instant approval for 1st (personal), than denied on other 3.

I called citi status dep't this morning, spoke to supervisor and got them to resubmit (not instant approve) 1 of the business apps, because I cancelled another citi business card  yesterday.

Should I call back, speak to another supervisor and try with the others? Should I wait until the resubmission (7-10 day process) works out and then try? Seems Chase reconsideration is good, what about Citi? 

Sorry if I am confusing. Please advise.

Exactly right AsherO...

What started out aas a cool plan to enjoy the fameous french cuisine in Paris (i'm from NY), is looking like it's going to be a bust.

Yeah yeah, ok, I'll go to Dajeerling for 1 night out of the 6 we will be there. Other than that, I can't find 1 restaurant that is glatt kosher that I can go to that isn't chinese (not great reviews bytheway from what I'm reading for le shine), and a few falafel and pizza joints. I mean, i'll go to israel for falafel, and italy for pizza, but I want french food at its finest!

Now I saw a few posts how some places serve beit yosef, even though they are under beit din, but come on now, that's not going to cut it. We still don't know who the shochet is and whether the act of slaughtering meets the ashkenazi glatt standard. Just because they check the meet, post-slaughter, to a higher standard, does not make it fit for consumption. Bottom line, where does the meat come from and who is supervising it - Beit Din, which does not require glatt to begin with...

Where in the world can I go for true glatt french cuisine?

I tried calling Priority Club for a status match and they asked me to send them a confirmation. Any way around this? I want to get to Diamond in Hyatt so I can get the Suite deal...
