re: United to now offer up to $10K for passengers who give up their seat on overbooked flights - lsumatt on 4/27/17 at 8:07 am
[quote]wow - that's overkill - I would volunteer every time & people will likely be fighting for it when it happens... [/quote] I mean that isn't going to be their initial offer. You, I, and everyone else will volunteer long before it gets to $10,000. There shouldn't be a limit at all. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - lsumatt on 3/22/17 at 6:14 pm
I just met my minimum spending on the AmEx business card - 2 days after my billing statement closed. Do I have to wait a month to get the sign up bonus? Longer? Is there anything I can do to get the points sooner (like pay in advance)? I really need the points so I can book a hotel room. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

I threw the book at the wall when I finished the end. It was really weird reading the book. There were paragraphs and even pages in the book where the movie took it word for word but had a completely different connotation. Watched the movie last night with fiancée (her first time). Probably m...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - lsumatt on 2/8/17 at 5:49 pm
Is the Amex Business Platinum subject to 5/24? I thought business cards were excluded from 5/24? I do have a credit limit problem. Chase keeps giving me like 30K limits on my cards and I was initially rejected on the Ritz until I called and had them move credit around. Do you think I need to redu...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

I have had the same credit card for 15 years but I get married in May so I have jumped in the game. I got the CSP and CSR in the last year which will pay for honeymoon flights to Hawaii. Fiancee and I both got Ritz Carlton cards (thanks to AmeriKop) to get 6 free nights at the Ritz in Maui. I pl...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

That is my biggest problem ...that a warmer planet is a worse planet. What is the workd's perfect temperature and what year did it occur?

re: Chase Ritz Carlton card check in - lsumatt on 11/29/16 at 11:06 pm
I would like to know the loophole as well. It looks like the easiest thing is to purchase seat upgrade vouchers to be used later. I was also considering just getting an annual membership to a an airport lounge....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Chase Ritz Carlton card check in - lsumatt on 11/24/16 at 9:17 am
How can I/should I spend my annual $300 by the end of the year if I don't plan to fly? Is there a good airport lounge membership I can get for ~$300 that isn't covered by priority pass?...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Yes, Nate silver said trump had about a 30% chance and was fighting liberals on it. I don't know why people hate him so much for what he does. If the polls themselves are wrong that isn't on silver but the pollsters...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Nate Silver is done ; It's Over - lsumatt on 11/9/16 at 6:48 am
I know he is a big lib but I don't understand the hate for Silver. You developed a model based on polling inputs to predict probabilities. His model is only as good as those inputs which are out of his control and how you and me respond on a phone. His prediction gave trump nearly a 30% chance as...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]Don't forget 2/30 rule.[/quote] Thanks. I got the CSP in June and the CSR in late August. So I don't think that is an issue. The letter just said "you already have the maximum amount of credit we can offer you" and "your current amount of credit is enough in relation your income" So jus...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
