Least you get points for it, at no cost...

From my view, you already have the points. You have no reason to be worried about it.

Used no rush shipping for 30 items instead of Amazon Prime for the $1 credit per item.....but I ordered all on the same order instead of separately!  I was so excited the items were still in stock I wasn't thinking.   :(

From comments on FTG

1. Once trying to change my voice to sound like my wife to ask for a fee waiver: Rep: "Ma'am, Do you have a cold, or is this really Mr. ----"?" Me: "Click". I did call back with my wife 5 minutes later to do it right.
2. Rep: "Oh, I see we've already waived this year's annual fee, you called us last month..."
3. Rep: "I'd like to help you, but I believe that card is issued by another bank," (in my defense, Citi and Chase both begin with "C".)

10 iPhones! What do you do with those? Obviously this is for MS, but I am not able to connect the dots on how you would dump the phones.

At a profit? How does it work? Are there people on ebay who will buy iPhones for above retail price?

Personally I have no idea what he's doing, but I'd guess that he's buying them at a very good price, and/or getting lots of CC points for them somehow.

there are places that will pay you to order them for them. I think they then send them overseas.

Go look at eBay. Tons of people pay above retail at this time of year. Certainly above the subsidized price.
I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.

It's not available immediately in every country right after it comes out.

I booked and subsequently cancelled a aa flight ten days ago assuming It'll be refunded. only to find out that since they let You hold it for 24 hours they aren't required to issue a refund.
Is there anything I can do to get my money back?
