re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - txtiger79
Did anyone apply for the MB Amex Plat on the 75k/$3k offer and not get their card yet? I applied a week ago and nothing. They usually ship overnight within a day or two. I called them and was told it is still being processed (even though I was approved instantly). Annoying....

Pretty good. I bought my house in July at a price below assessed value. Protested the following year and sent in my settlement statement. They lowered it to my purchase price without me needing to go to a hearing....

re: How to get an Uber at the airport? - txtiger79
Find out which nearby hotels have a free airport shuttle. Go to that hotel and call an uber. You can test on the app by putting in the hotel's address and seeing if uber will let you request a pickup. ...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - txtiger79
You can also call and ask how long you have to decide whether to keep the card. For example, many chase cards give a 90 day grace period. So they charge the fee, you pay it, and then if you cancel within 90 days of the fee hitting, they refund it. Cap One may have a similar policy. If they do, y...

re: Long weekend trip from Houston with kids, preferably beach - txtiger79
Not a beach, but have you thought about the hill country resorts? Like Hyatt Lost Pines, Hyatt Hill Country or the JW Marriott resort in San Antonio? They have great pools, lazy rivers, water slides, golf, spas, etc. They play movies outdoors at night and have s'mores for the kids to make as well...

re: Is a 36 minute layover enough to get to your next flight in time? - txtiger79
Like I said earlier, 30 minutes is enough time in Houston as long as things run on time and you do not need to clear immigrations/customs. If you are flying BTR-IAH on a regional jet, you will most likely arrive into terminal B. You will either fly out of B, C or E. C and E require taking the...

re: Is a 36 minute layover enough to get to your next flight in time? - txtiger79
You can get from any gate to any other gate in 15-20 minutes max at IAH as long as it doesn't involve immigration / customs. Just don't make any stops. ...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - txtiger79
I got an offer for up to 150,000 miles for spending the small sum of $30k between now and November. Couple of weird things. They are saying you have to pay for the ticket after registration. So I'd have to go cancel the 5 tickets I just purchased this morning and re-book them for them to coun...

re: American Express Premier Rewards Gold Card - txtiger79
Yeah that's what I was getting at. If you got the chase freedom unlimited and the chase ink bold, you would get 1.5 points for all spend (on the freedom), 5x on any office supplies (on the ink) plus a few other category bonuses. Minimum 300k points per month that can be transferred to southwest, Uni...

re: American Express Premier Rewards Gold Card - txtiger79
Man that's a pain in the butt. With that much in expenses though, I would try to maximize and diversify your points stash. You should never pay for a flight or hotel room with that kind of point generating ability and you should be taking some really fine trips too. At $50k spend per week, you s...

re: American Express Premier Rewards Gold Card - txtiger79
I was gonna say that you might switch to the united club card since you are based in Houston. It gives 1.5 United miles per $ spent and will get you into the United airport clubs. I think SAMs will take that card. This is the new version of the pres plus card but it doesn't give you elite qualifying...
