I had the Plus for a year. Closed it a month ago. Is it too early to churn?

Got the white Sox email.  I'm afraid to go online and check how many texts cancelled where to see how many clawback I got from American Express
I got the email. But when I login online, it shows all the tickets, and no sign of it being cancelled. What gives?

Tech Talk / Re: Windows 10

I am having trouble upgrading to Windows 10. I need to update my windows to all the new updates in order to get a notification that I can update Windows 10. The problem is that it says I need 5 updates and only three are updating and two are giving me errors and it's still not giving me a notification that I can update anybody know what I could do?
You can circumvent by using the Media Creation Tool to download Windows 10 as ISO, burning it to DVD, and installing Windows 10 from the DVD by running setup.exe.
There is stupid bug - typical for Microsoft - that the Media Creation Tool won't work unless your Windows Display Language is English-US, so make sure to change that setting if you need to.

[You might find the ISO useful anyway if you want to do a clean install.
If you do a clean install, you first have to do an upgrade install in order for your computer to be registered for Win10 for free, and then you do the clean install afterward. Interestingly, the clean install took a fraction of the time.]

Windows 10 boots extremely fast. 
After the upgrade, my computer feels like it boots literally double as fast if not more.

flights from SYD are about $355
Both SYD-LAX and MEL-LAX are available on Sep 24-29.
Only one way.
Bookable straight on
Good for someone who has miles for the other way.
The only date someone could possible fly is Thursday Sep 24, day after Yom Kippur.
Nothing else would work due to Shabbos and Sukkos.

I want to get the cheapest useful thing $5.01 or above in order to use the Newegg credit plus trigger the promotional credit. Using Dan's link [Items with free shipping, from low to high] starts at 0 cents and won't search past page 100 so it doesn't show items above $5. Any way to search for this?

AF posted on Arrival (Barclay).
Called in, no AF waiver and no bonus.
Should I:
2. Downgrade.
3. Close it and churn (how long would I need to wait before applying for new card).

Getting the emails from AMEX makes me think this is a go.
I don't mean to burst your balloon, but I can't imagine Amex would give the credit unless the charge changes from pending to posted.

About his churning rules, I assumed he intentionally hasn't gotten around to correcting them so that he wouldn't get attacked here MMS style as a reason for the abuse. ;) DOC?
He is clearly responsible and thoughtful about what he posts and how, and I always chalked up his churning rules to this.

Any data on how quickly this is churnable?

Did anyone get the bonus? What counted as a DD?
Serve, Etrade.

Didn't call, was approved automatically!
I applied for 50K offer right before 60K offer came out.
I haven't received ANY bonus yet. (Fist statement is still a while off.)
As I am a heavy Chase Ink churner, should I SM to match to 60K offer, or does that risk losing bonus altogether if a human notices the churning?

Aren't the cards written in Australian instead of English?
No, they are written in Swahili - That is the spoken language in Australia.
Much like Spanish in Florida.

I got approved for a Bunch of cards yesterday. I threw in one last app, but got denied due to having sufficient credit. Will HUCA-Recon pull again, if I'm calling today ?
IME, No.

interesting, that it would count as DD for one but not the other.
Etrade is the same.

Why would Australia have different credit cards?
Gee, man, that is a tough question.
I reckon it is so that the words on the back of the cards can be written with an Australian accent.
