If I am welcome maybe I will show up at one of your DOs and then you can judge me on if I know what an airline mile is worth.
If you knew what I did and can do with them, you'd be singing a different tune.  But you're welcome to a DO anytime.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Confidence is something you do not lack but from where I sit you are underestimating your opponent.

That reminds me, did you ever look into the two cards I mentioned?  ;)

I just spoke to a rav about the whole taus akum thing.  He told me that even if you have a receipt and you purposely hold it back from the store in order to get more, that is still muttar.  The only way it would be a problem is if you lets say bough two pairs of the same shoes, one on sale and one full price.  If you go to return the sale one with the full price receipt, there since you are proactively misleading them that is assur.  Otherwise, it is their problem.

Not worth the credit pull, unless you're buying thousands of dollars worth.

Still a hard pull.

Yes, but you can "build credit" and get "paid" more :P

No joke.

You can build credit with the Macy's card and get a discount of X, or build credit with a card like Sapphire Preferred and get the equivalent of thousands of dollars in redemption value.

CMIIW, but you likely did not get "thousands of dollars" off your Macy's purchase.

If you don't have credit it might be worth it.
