You are planning to go away for Pesach next week and only have a return flight (but not the way there) because you are waiting for Avios to open up
You are planning to go away for Pesach next week and only have an outbound flight (but not the way back) because you are waiting for Avios or UA to open up
I heard from someone who deals with selling Avios flights that one should not expect them to open up close-in to Pesach... (assuming MIA)
Good assumption!

That because those flights are already oversold.

Some people book those just to get bumped.

going through your freedom card to see how much more you need to spend on groceries this quarter you see a charge you don't recognize and you think, I wish they would do that more often.

yah.. they charged my card on 1/30 and then decided to wait for 2 months without a single false charge or fraud alert? I'm fairly confident it has to do with target subscriptions (paid with a gc, but they need a card on file). considering I set one up on the 29th. not worth my time to complain about 1c
