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.

Read the forums. Educate yourself in applying and points building.  Some old threads have many old pages with information that is now irrelevant. But their later pages may be helpful.
On DDMS (DansDeals Main Site) there's a bar at the right with 'featured credit cards'. Those have high SUB (sign up bonuses).
Each bank's credit card points have different values than each other.  Some can earn you cash back, some can be converted to airline miles, etc. Read a bit and search DDF for information.  Most cash back is 1 cpp (sent per point), so earning more points per purchase is the way to increase your earnings.

If I make a bill pay from bank to CC (not on cc portal) bank says bill pay delivered by Monday, due date is Tomorrow, will it post as late?

Hi,  I have been having a problem with Citi thank you point for a few weeks, when I try to search for a flight it always sends me too "lodging" and not to "flights."  This is happening on the "booking.com" site Citi now sends to.  Anyone else getting this issue? Citi has been unable to help

Keep in mind that we are flexible to move the minyan to nearby Canmore, as it's easier and cheaper to find Villas, hotels there.
So if you considering in general the area let me know, we already have a few men for minyan, let's make it together.

Did you email the guy behind the Canmore minyan? Maybe between you, you already have a minyan.

At the top of the page click "Show new replies to your posts."
Yes, you'll be bombarded with all the threads you ever posted in.


pros: Is there a way to stop getting them to show up without muting the thread?
