re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - Joshjrn
I've done a couple of weeks in South Africa. Very cool country. Make sure you get at least a few days in Kruger as the animals don't always want to come out to play, and considering it's a big open space the size of the state of New Jersey, there isn't much you can do about it :lol: Plenty to do ...

[quote]Hmmm. Melvin Gordon for $3 [/quote] I wonder where he would have been drafted had Woodhead, say, been traded before the start of the season. On a related note, I'm extremely curious to see where he's drafted next season. ...

[quote]Just back from a week-long trip to Norway and a couple other places. Pretty eventful. Especially when I got denied boarding at my gate yesterday on my way back home.

[quote]No clue, they just said they couldn't transfer pets from CSP to CSR... They also show up as two different buckets on the UR site. I've got a combined 270k between the two, split in half amongst cards. [/quote] Someone lied to you. For my own edification (and amusement), I just logged ...

[quote]So, if I were to pair a Chase Freedom card with my CSR, how do you know what the rotating categories are in a given time frame? Is that the right card to pair with the CSR?[/quote] I mean, there's no annual fee, so why not? As for the categories, just google "Chase Freedom calendar"...
