My wife and I are considering a vacation. We don't have a time yet, but we want somehwere that we can sit on a beach and relax. Nice amenities. maybe a few side activities. Ideally not more than a 5 or 6 hour flight from NYC. I have  about 80K United miles and 100KSPG and just got about 60K MR points.

Any suggestions? we already did the Westin Aruba. Likes that, but want to try something new.

Credit Cards / Chase System is down
« on: October 23, 2012, 03:52:41 PM »
FYI- I did a 2BM and my app for the Ink Bold didnt work at first. So I filled it out really quickly again, and it went through but it said they needed to review it.

When I called Chase to see if there is a way I could get this expedited, everyone is telling me their systems are down so they cant do anything. Now might not be the best time to apply for a Chase CC.

I got an email from Amex yesterday that said I can now buy Amex gift cards for no activation fee. Does anyone know if there are exclusions to getting Amex points? Can I buy unlimited gift cards (no activation fee, so it doesn't cost me anything), and get tons of points?

General Discussion / Getting silver appraised+NYC

Does anyone in the NYC area (preferably Bronx) know of someone who can appraise silver pieces for insurance purposes?


If I am planning on moving to Canada within the next year, does anyone know if my US credit score moves with me? For instance, if I will want to buy a house in Canada, should I stop applying for credit cards in the US if the credit transfers, or if it doesn't transfer, shouldn't I apply for as many CC's as possible now, because my credit here wont matter there?

Any guidance?


General Discussion / someone to teach me about all this?
« on: September 12, 2012, 10:24:03 AM »

I have read the newbie forums and tried to read as much as I can, but am so confused how some people have soooooo much mileage saved up and manage to be super duper elite status for all airlines, hotels, car rentals, etc.

Is there a forum page (that I couldn't find) that explains what to do? Like a mileage for dummies manual?
