re: Australia - 9 Days Down Under (Uluru, Melbourne, Cairns, Sydney) - Leave Wednesday - txtiger79
I highly recommend the stargazing program at Uluru. It sounds like the only night you can do it is when you get there though. They basically set up high powered telescopes about 10 minutes walking away from some of the restaurants in the main development. It is truly amazing. You have to sign up...

re: Costa Rica Honeymoon - txtiger79
Check out Tabacon in Arenal. They run specials that are pretty good. Rooms are nice, access to hot springs included, etc. If you do go to Arenal or Montverde, do yourselves a favor and do the Sky Trek zipline. Routinely rated best in the country. The best hotel on the island for beaching is t...

re: First time out of the country, what do I do about cash? - txtiger79
There is some pretty poor advice on this thread. Carrying large sums of cash around is generally not advised due to the theft risk. Same issue with debit cards. They don't typically offer "dollar one" theft protection like credit cards do. Also, if you rent a car or a hotel room with a debit car...

re: Real estate agent commissions - txtiger79
To the OP, start with a google search in your area like "discount real estate agents in Atlanta" and see what pops up. Call a few to get an idea of what's on offer and then use that as a datapoint for your agent. ...

re: Real estate agent commissions - txtiger79
[quote]kick backs are illegal [/quote] I assume you mean un-disclosed kickbacks are illegal. There are a number of discount agents here in Houston. They offer discounted commissions on both the buy side and sell side. On my last purchase, I used one and they credited 2% back on my settlement ...

If I already have season tickets and opt-in for the relocation request through my renewal application, will I be able to add new tickets through the online selection portal or do I also have to join the separate wait list? Thanks!...

re: Has anybody used business uber? Just signed up, haven't tested it - txtiger79
I made it available to my company's employees. Makes expenses much easier because we just have one monthly invoice vs a pile of email receipts. Have to check the invoice for employees abusing it though. Basically the corporate account shows up as a payment method on their app. I think you can limit ...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - txtiger79
Some office maxes sell the Amazon cards where you can name your amount up to $500. On occasion the one near my house has said credit cards can't be used for those. But it has been intermittently enforced. Even if you end up buying multiple cards, it is very easy to load them on the app using the...

[quote]I suggest upgrading it at the time of redemption to get something in Hawaii or Ski area[/quote] Yeah so I thought upgrades weren't allowed based on some blogs I'd read. However when I called today to put in the redemption, the agent said I could in fact upgrade it later, so I will plan to...

New Marriott marquis downtown will be open. Has a lazy river on the roof and a bunch of new restaurants street level. Closer walk to Minute Maid than most parking options would be if you stay elsewhere. Would need to uber to midtown for nightlife. ...

Wife was pre-approved for a CSR in branch today after being auto-declined online last week. She is WELL over 5/24. Made my day. I will be making my way into a branch soon. Added bonus is I can now downgrade her CSP to a Freedom unlimited. Is there any reason to not downgrade her ink plus to a in...

re: BYU game in Houston...ticket question... - txtiger79
If you want to have your group sitting together, I would suggest not waiting until game day. Buy them when they go on sale from the ticket office and you won't have a problem. The game's ticket office (not LSU) will also probably have a pre-sale for Texans season ticket holders, so try that route if...
