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

Update : avios did not open up. Good thing I took ua

That's for when they try to tell you what "vehi" in vehi sheamda stands for.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

I accidentally paid 2K from redcard to the wrong barclays card and now have -2k in balance. Not worried cuz I'll just spend it in redcard next month :-D

First off, you're breaking the rules by not just shmoozing here, you're talking business j/k

Not a big deal for just once, but its good to keep track (like in a spreadsheet) because its suggested to not have many payment sources to the same credit card, it might trigger a human looking at it and in a few cases, request for bank statements, etc.
