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.

I didnt find any answers to this question:
I applied for the Freedom Flex using the DD link about 12 hours before the 5% grocery bonus deadline in january. I had to call recon for approval about 2 weeks later. I asked chase if i had gotten this extra bonus - besides for the Q1 category - and they said yes. But its not posting points as such, and now the agent says I dont have it, that the bonus ended in 2021. Any ideas?
If I should file an CFPB complaint, how can I if I applied for the card using a guest acct, and therefore dont have records of application?
Thanks a ton :)
I'm new, but not THAT new. I've been reading awhile...

"subscribed" topics?  Isn't you subscribed by clicking "notify"?  So it's notifying you.
You can "unnotify".

You'll want to uncheck "Turn notification on when you post or reply to a topic."
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Does anyone know why all of a sudden there are no American flights available using British miles until July? Last week there was plenty of availability.

Re: Indochino suit did not fit at all

I have the same issue suit was not close to fitting but I went back to the store within the time frame. I would suggest calling and asking for a supervisor and keep bothering them until hopefully, they will replace it for you. Not sure what else you can do at this point

Thanks! Any recent updated experience?

I 2nd the motion!

If anyone flew RJ from TLV to JFK via stopover in Amman, would appreciate the feedback. Especially the kosher meal in business class.
Been hearing negative experience with food on RJ on the dansdeals.com (Not sure if this was just for coach or business)
"The “kosher meal” was a joke. For lunch we got 2 cucumbers and some smoked salmon. Dinner was an apple, orange and banana with a piece of cake. There was no kosher certificate or labels anywhere so I skipped the cake. The flight attendant confirmed this is their standard kosher meal."

Nj just released details on clean energy phase 3. I’ve attached the pdf. In short only the model 3 standard range plus will qualify for the lower 2k rebate (under 55k). The higher rebate is 4k for under 45k msrp

You have to ask a moderator to do it, if I'm not mistaken.
