[quote]That's great you have that many but what do you do about 80+ cards annual fees? [/quote] Pretty much what Teddy said...The vast majority of annual fees are waived for the first year. After that, I cancel most of the cards. Some (like the Citi AA), I'll call up and get the annual fee waiv...

[quote]ou can get Global Entry for free and $200 in travel expenses reimbursed on that card. Plus Starwood Gold. It's certainly worth it for a year considering those benefits plus the 100k points. Yeah, I'd jump on that offer in a heartbeat. I never get the 100k offer though. I'm about to do GE ...

re: A Chef's Perspective - JustinTI

Good thread...Love LaBoca. The last time we went, my wife got the skirt steak and it was delicious. I have a little bit of a love/hate relationship with skirt steak when cooking at home. One will have great texture and flavor, then the next one will be chewy and dull...And it varies even when I...

[quote]I'd apply ASAP. Like today probably. No telling when it will end, but it won't be long. [/quote] +1...And apply even if you already have one and haven't applied for another Barclay card too recently. Barclays pulls from TransUnion - so it basically doesn't matter. Also, you can have mult...

ETA - No longer available. Anyone have an American Airlines flight this month? I have a single SWU left that I'm not going to use, and they've gotten strict about not applying them to flights post expiration - which has caught me off guard. I know we have some fellow frequent flyer geeks here, ...

Couple thoughts on Pacific point travel... Air Tahiti Nui partners with Delta and AA and flies to Tahiti from the US. But they are not the only option. Air France (Skyteam) flies LAX-PPT. It was one of the sweet spots in the Delta award chart (relatively speaking)...when DL actually had an awa...

[quote]Long story short, I found an online lender (FFSi, First Financial Services Inc) who offered us a 30 year fixed, zero points, for 3.99% and they would also pay the lender fees. On the other hand, the guy we originally sat down with gave us 4.375% with $1,300 in lender fees. [/quote] I refin...
