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.

Probably a clueless n00b Q:
Isn't the 35% AMEX on MR Points spent whereas retention bonus's are for $ spent? Amex BP has 35% back on $ spent?

From cc retention bonus thread:
BP 40K after 10K spending
PP 55K after 4K spending


I reached 10K spending including some 35% AmEx travel bookings, should I be concerned for clawback since the charges are actually being credited ?

We use Toveedo. Decent selection, we don't let the kids (under 7) watch too often. But seems like they keep adding new content.

How do I actually add a thread to that list? I can't find the option anywhere to add to the list.

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.
