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.

If you don't know anything about the matter, just don't post.
I must have this thread confused with the one you can ask questions in.

Just wanted to confirm, if I transfer Amex to Qantas, can I book a flight for someone else even if I am not taking the flight? Meaning book a flight for a random person not associated with the account without me booking for myself.

Qantas only allows you to book award travel for eligible family members. However you can add other people as an additional user on your AMEX card and transfer points to their Qantas account. That process will become more difficult on 9/1 for newly added authorized users.

Yes.
But now cash means half of the standard rate, It’s not a set amount anymore.

I want to downgrade my platinum card and today is day 30 (last day to still get the annual fee refunded). I spent money on American Airlines and Saks on Friday to utilize my credits, but they are still pending. If I downgrade today (to Green, lets say), will the credits still kick in even after the card is no longer platinum?
