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.

Would including spaces in quotes work? Like " ai "
not in the case of commas and periods
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Does it raise red flags to pay a cc with cash in the bank? Can an AU do it or only the cardholder?

Thanks.
So basically one person says it's fine and one says it's not.
Anyone else have experience with this?

because if there is it should be Stickied, and if not it should be made and Stickied.

It seems like I should post here instead of in the AMEX Offer Thread, especially after messaging an individual user.  I'm new here and I have plenty of AMEX offers I don't use.  How do I get any references to sell there?  Do I just post more on the forums?  I didn't see anything in the OP on that thread, sorry.

Is it a no brainer to pay the annual fee on the Marriott Bonvoy Boundless for the annual night free?

go to the goods for sale, and post what you have.
 Yes the more you post the more established you become.
 And more trusted you become.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.
