[quote]Do they have a card to which you can downgrade so that your account is not closed? I messed up on this with an Amex Delta card.
They do. You can downgrade to Chase Sapphire.
However, when you do that you can no longer transfer points to Airline or Hotel partners unless you ha...

Whoa. Page 6.
Anywho, just something to consider that I just learned doing an award booking. *ETA: Disregard this. Well within the published rules.
I was able to get two open jaws on the award ticket. Maybe it's not technically two/maybe it's because I have no stopovers or that I go through BK...

These things are so stupid. I don't go to a game to sit on the beach. Or swim in a poll like at some baseball games. [/quote]
With story after story of fan attendance falling due to a variety of reasons, this is far from "stupid."
It may be desperate, but doing nothing is what would ...

Oddly never been to either. Flew through Denver once on the way to Vegas and it did look like a pretty awesome location.
I will admit I have a great affinity for "The West."
Going to probably hit up that area a lot here in the next few years....

Houston may lack character but so does 90% of major cities.
It's a bit too spread out and all that, but being a major city there is tons to do which is always a bonus in my book. And really, I just need a place with things to do so I don't off myself.
I guess in the end it's a wash. ...

I really liked it too. I also hit it on an absolutely beautiful September period. Went to Sonoma and the Redwood park near there.
Had bachelor party in Miami. Had a great time but it would be mighty expensive I'd imagine....

I should have tried that. I would have got pretty far with those weak arse questions.
Adult jeopardy would crush me.
Don't they have a huge potential question book for contestants to study or am I just making that up....

In a way, I don't think it really matters much.

Basically, two ALL TIME low rates. You aren't losing either way....

Friend uses him.
So I haven't discussed anything with the guy yet. Waiting on my W-2.
He's an older guy. 20+ years experience. I'm curious if there's a "deal" as well.
It won't cost much to try him out one year and go back to doing it myself next year if necessary. ...
