Made an order from saveya with the extra 5% off and forgot to change my card at checkout, that was supposed to be $2k towards my CSR

1 AN expired.
Which one? May be able to convince them to reinstate for an extra month.

Hyatt
I have personally gotten them to extend Hyatt nights although it hadn't expired yet, can't hurt to try though.

Not really a fair test because I don't really care. All I am going to do is ask and if they say no hang up.  :)
Some have seen my smooth talking live and up front.  ;)

If you don't care why is it a dumb mistake?

Because it is stupid to let something like that expire. Better to just give it away.

but flying blue requires a flight to prevent the miles from expiring not just any activity
Does a redemption count as FB flight activity?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Revenue ua flight got cancelled and I asked to be rebooked on AA thinking I'd probably get redeemable miles, forgetting that I was booked on a revenue flight with UA and would have gotten that anyway. I'm not getting any more miles and lost upgrade chances (would have cleared)

Was doing 3x PGGM and forgot to cancel a flight.

A- Good thing I switched to B6 where base fares are cheap ($48.10 in this case). Also the add-ons get refunded even >24hrs

B- Got agent to refund as TB :)

So all in all not that bad
