Topic Wiki

This is the thread where you can ask any random question you have. Feel free to ask even the most basic questions that you otherwise might be embarrassed to ask. This is the thread for beginners, so veterans here will treat you nicely. Ask a beginner's Q in some other threads and no guarantee of that same treatment. ;)
People here want to help, so just have some patience, follow the tips below and hopefully someone will help you when they have a chance.

If you looking for a particular thread you once saw and can't find it, this is not the place to ask. Check out Help Me Find It and ask there.

How to ask a question in this thread:
Click the blue reply button at the top or bottom of the page, type your question, and click post!

Some helpful tips for eliciting answers from other members:
- Keep your question short and precise. No one wants to read a megillah.
- The more questions you ask in one post, the less likely any will be answered. People are willing to answer a question or two, but if you ask all the questions that apply to your particular issue, you're expecting to be spoonfed. Members don't like holding out the spoon, so ask accordingly.

Is it possible to have entire thread open (Talpatalk style) on desktop?
I wanna read it straight, but having to go to the next page every 15 posts or so is a bit annoying.

I tried to ask this on the dansdeals website but I didn't get a response.
If I open a Delta credit card with the new sign up bonus, can I avoid the annual fee by downgrading it in a year?
Also, does the no annual fee card give a free checked bag?
If only we had jury duty every day, then we'd have time to write trip reports about the entire universe.

IIRC only within 60 days and its risky, no checked bag on the no AF
