re: Study: Barry Bonds 688 career IBBs is the greatest record in sports history - RedHawk
I'll take the Cy Young 511 wins record as the most unbreakable. I don't care what any statistician comes up with. That record will stand forever!...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - RedHawk
[quote]Aren't you doing all this (earning points) to fix this problem? [/quote] Maybe, but mostly I do cash back cards so this is my first "travel card". New to this really. Also, after looking at the priority pass I'm not sure how much value is there for me. The only airport I fly regularly ...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - RedHawk
[quote]1) With the $300 travel credit which is so easily applied, your AF comes down to $150 a year. 2) Priority Pass Select membership. You can bring yourself and at least 2 other guests to Priority Pass lounges. Possibly 3. If you fly a good bit, this benefit is huge. 3) Any time you fly d...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - RedHawk
Just applied and got automatically approved for $16,400. Pretty stoked. Was on the fence, but what put me over was the calendar year $300 credit for travel. I can get $600 worth of travel credit before I pay my annual fee next year, of which at that point, I will probably just cancel the card and...

[quote]Because I haven't slammed Coors/Miller/Bud/Yuengling once, but to call any of them "very high quality" either means I'm dealing with a lunatic or he's trying to argue a completely different point. [/quote] I think they are high quality myself. You can argue whether or not you like the ta...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - RedHawk
[quote]I was worried about the same. However, there are ways to trigger DD and some bonuses don't even require a DD. For ex: 1) Chase Personal Checking - I got the $300 bonus. This required a DD. A cash out from simply best coupons where I receive cb for VGC purchases. Counts as DD. Pretty s...

re: Sous vide brisket vs smoker meltdown - RedHawk
[quote]So how about smoking for a few hours, finishing cooking sous vide, and then searing (or torching!) the outside when finished?[/quote] At that point, wouldn't it just be much easier to keep it in the smoker until it finishes? My charcoal smoker changes very little in temp for hours on end....

re: Sous vide brisket vs smoker meltdown - RedHawk
Can't speak for the Sous Vide cause I've never used one, but smoking a brisket to perfection is one of the greatest joys I have. It is a ton of fun to smoke a brisket imo. And when you nail it, the looks on people's faces is even better....

[quote]Even if you consider straight monetary value of 100K points, thats $1K. Plus $300 in airline credits. $1,600 in the first year of membership (for $450). [/quote] Not a huge traveler ATM. So basically would be looking at the cash value mostly. Plus if I get either Sapphire or this new car...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - RedHawk
[quote]No. Almost as definite as no 0% intro APR.[/quote] Thanks for the info. I might actually go with the Sapphire instead. I know the extra points are great, but not sure I'm comfortable yet with that high of an annual fee and minimum spending. I'm kind of new to this so might just dip my t...
