That's all you have to say?

Someone posts a blanket comment on one of my posts, not explaining why or what, and then you come out of your n00b diaper and +1000'd it.

What do you think DDF is? a troll toilet??

If you have something interesting or constructive to say - post it, if not - shut up.
This is one of the most solid posts I've seen in a while around here...

If you can find me even one DDFer who understood your so called remizah I'll apologize in public. The thing is you are not going to find anyone.

Don't try to fool anyone. If you have something in your mind why don't you just say it?

Have a great rest of your life. Leave me alone.
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

this is a loophole that was just closed

(http://boardingarea.com/onemileatatime/2014/06/19/transfer-amex-membership-rewards-to-other-accounts-no-longer-possible and http://viewfromthewing.boardingarea.com/2014/06/19/ouch-can-longer-transfer-american-express-points-whomever-wish/)

For years the official rule with American Express Membership Rewards has been that you could only transfer your points to your own loyalty program accounts, or to loyalty program accounts of people who had linked cards on your Membership Rewards account.

In other words, if you had an American Express Platinum account and earned membership rewards and you had secondary cardholders, you could transfer points to accounts in the name of those secondary cardholders.

And you’d probably have that rule enforced if you called American Express to make the transfer.

But on the Amex website you could always link anyone’s account you wished — it would ask for the account holder name and account number — and then once linked transfer points into that account.

No longer. The American Express website has changed. It appears you may still be able to transfer points to any loyalty program account no matter whose that is already linked to your Membership Rewards account. But you can no longer link accounts of any ineligible cardmember

Unreasonable is not ok. Picky you're entitled to be.

I sold my points to a broker this morning who had no problems transferring out to a Singapore Air account.  Either someone found a workaround, or somewhere out there is a brand new Singapore Air account with my name on it.
+1 1.5  :)  ;)  :)  :D

Did you let someone else access your account to do the transfer?
