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.

Newbie here! Question about buying Hilton Free Night Certificates. I see people selling them with their "Diamond Account". How exactly does that work? I assumed the certificate itself would be sold and transferred?
Is there a wiki in that thread? (It can be found directly above the post on the page, there's a line "topic wiki" click the '+' to open it.)
If not, or if it's not complete enough, ask in that thread.

Or if for some reason that's too complicated, you can just go to page 1, and it'll be on the top.

Surest way to get to Israel currently is on LY but UR don't transfer to them.

You can use your united points to book on united but no knowing if they will be flying or not.

Another option is through Europe with a star alliance partner- check AC first. You can transfer UR to AC

You can book on United to ATH for 40K when its saver and you can usually get pretty cheap flights from ATH-TLV. You can also book ATH-TLV Aegean for 12.5K United on many dates.

Thanks! Simple Enough.
So this will only work if the poster uses postimages?

 
ETA: I should have read further.. Lol.
Sure just add a width or height of about 100

So that would be
Code: [Select]
[img width=100] picture link[/img]
