If you're ever in a unfortunate situation where you need to fly in a hurry, you can often beat that. Just booked my in laws a 4:15 flight at 2:00. Headed strait to the airport after. When you're trying to make a funeral...

Great routing for a mileage run  ;D
Except that you don't get any miles on an SQ award ticket.

ETA: who accrues miles from flights? Can't be a DDFer, huh?

You need a flight from CLE-NYC and Dl priced it for 30K miles so you book CLE-BOS via LGA for just 5K miles!!!

This:
I'm just mentioning it so people will continue using Dan's links. There used to be a thread about Amazon Smile where this was discussed more at length, but I can't seem to find it.


Seems like Dan gets referals even for Amazon Smile.

Worked!

You can fill in the Chase form with the last 4 digits of your Freedom without consulting your spreadsheet.
For all 5 cards.
