When do additional nights open up - i.e. calendar expansion, and not cancellations or last-minute unsold rooms? PM is ok :)

it is my opinion that the god's of chase, amex,  and citi and the lesser ones of which us mere mortals simply do not know have truly smiled upon some humans on this plane of existence called earth or DDF to be able to attain the unattainable. such feats as new zealand,  maldives, bora bora, and other unknown or unwritten trips that will only exist for us in our dreams.   :o  :'(

Oh come now!  AKL, MLE, BOB and more are all available to you and all those who are sufficiently inquisitive, organized, disciplined, and ambitious.

Just a few short years ago, I embarked on this journey with a prayer and a BA 100K offer. Oh, and I asked which hotel was best for the wedding night. Oiy.

My point, you can do it if I could do it. There is nothing special about me. And I can assure you, Chase, AmEx, and Citi would agree with me on that last part ;)

I thought it was un-ajk-like to not post the equivalent links to your comments and am happy to see you having corrected that.

Not sure I follow.

Being un-ajk-like to not post equals ajk-like to post, so "I thought it was AJK-like to post the equivalent links to your comments and am happy..."

Nope, still don't get it :P

It think side conversations should be banned in these threads until the TR is finished

My point, you can do it if I could do it.

THAT exactly. 3 years ago I thought I'd never be able to do it. This year, I'll be doing this (just under 50,000 miles):

Point is, anyone can. Start off slow and before you know it, you'll be shocked at how much you've learned.

+100. I also started less than a year ago.  I don't do any manufactured spend (although we do have biz expenses) but thanks to the knowledge of how to book flights from DDF and some new credit cards to maximize our points way better we are going to MLE in a few months.

Which BTW, on another note, when Mrs. AJK continues is she going to tell us which she liked better, MLE or BOB? ;)

People in glass houses... should not throw stones.

Your entire TR of BOB consisted of about 8 lines.
Ouch.   :-X
You can say what you think when you think what you say.
