re: Hulu, aka the commercial channel - TheChiefHasArrived
Are you talking about the Live TV service or the standard regular streaming service? Because the ads on the streaming service aren't frequent at all, although there are only like 5 of them which can be frustrating to hear the same ones over and over....

re: Credit card points via Venmo? - TheChiefHasArrived
You're being charged a fee to do so that outweighs any rewards structure on the market. The only way that could be potentially profitable is if you have a suign up bonus that you can't make with organic spend, but this spend also doesn't generally count towards card sign up bonuses either. So tell y...

re: Southwest is offering 50% off flights 9/15-11/3 *BOOK BY TODAY* - TheChiefHasArrived
I've opened for my wife and I every day of the sweepstakes and won 50 miles combined. AA had one a month or two ago and I won probably 10K total. Waste of time. Today is by far the largest amounts of points being given away so probably still worth the 10 seconds once....

re: Thinking about a credit card for miles to travel more. Worth it? - TheChiefHasArrived
Mine just renewed and they credited me $100 so it was $450 still (so $150 after the travel credit), I'll re-evaluate next year. If I was eligible for the Preferred bonus I'd do that in a heartbeat. ...

re: Lynchburg couple flies to Hawaii, finds out negative COVID-19 results won't be accepted - TheChiefHasArrived
It's literally the first result for "COVID test Hawaii," so it's ultimately on them. But yes any restrictions anywhere at this point are ridiculous, including the one to return from international travel for vaccinated US citizens. ...

re: Refinancing with BETTER - TheChiefHasArrived
I used them for my mortgage, I'd recommend. There was an offer last year that gave me $2000 statement credit on my AMEX, so I'd look into if that's still going or a similar promo. They also matched a lower offer in case you get a more competitive rate elsewhere....

re: Thinking about a credit card for miles to travel more. Worth it? - TheChiefHasArrived
100%, the Sapphire Preferred has an all-time high bonus worth a minimum of $1250 even if you don't know how to maximize it. A no-brainer assuming you're able to meet the $4000 in 3 month spend requirement. In a year, upgrade it to the Sapphire Reserve for some more high-end benefits depending on how...

re: Mexico Newbie Questions - TheChiefHasArrived
1. Not much, any major US network has free Mexican data, texts, and cheap calls if you really need to call home. 2 & 3. Use debit card to get best exchange rate at ATMs. Use credit card for purchases that allow it for protections, or cash for ease and to help out the locals. Chips in cards helps ...

re: Best Credit Card for mid-20 year old - TheChiefHasArrived
Discover is an easy to use beginner card with 2x cashback your first year. I'd recommend the Chase Sapphire which has an all time-high sign up bonus now and if you'll be able to have a large amount of spend through rent you'll be traveling free for a long time. Great earning rate and easy to use poi...

re: Anyone been to Atlantis\Bahamas Recently? How was it? Any recs on food? - TheChiefHasArrived
Went 2-3 years ago and thought it was pretty dated and food was overpriced, little to no service on the beach or pool. Big difference depending on which tower you're staying in, we were middle tower/tier. The place is big enough and the fish/aquarium would be fun for kids, which we didn't have. Casi...

re: Anyone going to Mexico this summer? - TheChiefHasArrived
Been 3x during COVID, it's probably the safest it's ever been. 85% of the world has the same meaningless "level." I'm not sure if Mexico has ever been below that level, ever....

re: Fast Track Entry: Turks and Caicos - TheChiefHasArrived
Our flight out was at 5 - we had to check out of the hotel, ate, return car etc and decided "oh let's just head to the airport" and regretted it due to the lines as 2-3p is peak time. The airside gate area is a size of a typical gate at US airport except serving 5 flights of all airlines. No AC, no ...

re: Fast Track Entry: Turks and Caicos - TheChiefHasArrived
We just got back 2 weeks ago, AA flight on a Tuesday landed at 2:30. Not a single other person in the line other than our flight, in and out in 10-20 minutes. Flew out on a Saturday which was longer and more crowded, but the hold up was checking in the AA line/kiosk, after that it was easy (although...

That "red dot" Walgreens test worked for me in Turks & Caicos and works in Hawaii as well. 5 minutes in the drivethru, self swab, results in a couple of hours. Highly recommend....
