just checking out this option now and it seems that you now get less than 1cpp with Amazon as opposed to the old gc
yep, just checked it out, huge devaluation!     no more amazon gc's available through ty points.  and if you shop with points at amazon they only give you ~80% value.      i was about to burn through a bunch of ty points on amazon gc's this week.   what garbage.

Also I've had some negative feedback from 2 ppl that bought from me regarding the touchpad..
on the a5?    the reviews say the a5 was updated with a synaptics touchpad.  also, that if you update the drivers for all the touch motions,  it performs beautifully with win8.

it's not a "deal", but it seems like a sick piece, gets amazing reviews, has all the specs i want and i've got a lot of amazon credit...     have either of you (dh/nc) had any experience with it?  any thoughts?

I did a 2bm for plat+ prg a few months ago.

Received the bonus on plat but not prg , I had the prg 9 months ago. Is there a point in calling / sming about the points?
no.   if it doesn't post automatically it's become almost impossible to get them to post it manually... especially when you're not supposed to get it according to the t&c's.

Hey guys,
I need some advice regarding my next AOR

1) I'm thinking citi 2bm with AA (do 2bm's even work with citi anymore??) Or possibly 3bm (Thank You card)

2) If BofA Cards are churnable I was thinking the Virgin 50k card along with Hawaiian card(s)

3)Barclays 2bm with UsAir cards (2 of the same product, hope it works)

4) Chase: I switched my sapphire visa to a mc and would like to reopen the visa along with the Ink plus (I already have the bold)

5) Amex is not an option because I've had most of their products within a year

Thanks in advance!
unless you changed your chase saph pref to a regular preferred card, they still won't approve you for a new one, even if it's been changed to a mc.

Just saw this in an article.

The shower stall strictly prohibits occupancy to two persons.  However, our crew was determined to demonstrate that this limit is only a suggestion and as long as we were not technically showering, that capacity could be pushed to four.

As for the reason, they have a max 2 person limit, is..

The limits on persons in the shower area are in place due to the oxygen masks available in the event of a sudden decompression. The crew, like many Emirates crews unfortunately, exceeded their authority by allowing more than 2 people enter that space together. They shouldn't be praised for this. Their disregard for safety procedures put you at risk and your encouragement for others to try this will simply put future crews who follow the rules at a disadvantage.

Reminds me of the people banning iPhones. Buy it, use it safely and carefully when the kids aren't around and throw it out.
it's probably more similar to people bringing guns into their house.   buy it and use it safely when the kids arent around is all find and dandy until the kids go into the wrong place and find it...            guns at least people have an excuse for and usually keep locked up, but a house cleaner?  eh
