Reader Request: SD Cards!

Zak asked in a comment,
“Im leaving on birthright in a month, and staying the whole summer, and I need a second 2gig SD card. If you could find me one within a week or two that’d be swell.”

Hey Zak, enjoy Israel-I’m jealous of you!!!
Having a couple of high capacity memory cards is definitely the best way to go on a vacation!
I always take tons of pictures and then turn them into a beautiful photo book(which is so much nicer than having a bunch of loose photographs, or worse, having a bunch of digital files left on your hard drive that nobody will ever get to see) thanks to Shutterfly!

Here are a few good options, most of the best deals I found are from buy.com so you can save $10 if you open a new google checkout account, or save $5 off $50 for opening a new buy.com account

More Skybus Info Linky
Skybus is aiming to become the Ryanair of the USA.
They will be totally no-frills, everything that can be charged for, will be charged for.
Every single Skybus flight has just 10 seats on it for $10, so don’t hesitate to buy a ticket-what do have to lose???

Their hub will be Columbus, OH.
You can fly for $10 to/from such cities as Los Angeles(Burbank, CA), Oakland CA, Seattle, and Ft. Lauderdale.

Airline info:

-With over $230 Million, no airline has ever launched with more startup capital, the previous record was Jetblue’s $130 Million.
-Skybus currently has 8 Airbus A319′s, and has orders for 57 more!
-Each plane has jsut over 150, all leather seats.
-Want to advertise? For just $500,000 a year you can plaster your name across the entire body of a Skybus plane!
-They will be flying from a lot of secondary airports:
By saying x =They really mean y:
Los Angeles=Burbank.
S. Fransisco=Oakland
Seattle=Bellingham, WA
Vancouver=Bellingham, WA
Boston=Portsmouth, NH

Here are the other airports where they mean what they actually say:
Columbus, OH.
Greensboro, NC.
Richmond, VA.
Kansas City.
Ft. Lauderdale

-Columbus, OH has given Skybus incentives worth tens of millions of dollars for the hub.
-With a huge Columbus hub promised to be developed, Ohio will now have 3 cities with major hubs, Continental in Cleveland, Delta in Cincinnati, and Skybus in Columbus. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe it is now the only state to have 3 separate cities with hub airports.

Policy Info:
-The gist of their policies is that all you are buying is your airfare, anything else is additional.
-The first 2 checked bags are $5 each, so it’s less than what Spirit charges.
-All tickets go to Columbus, OH. so if you want to go from Burbank to Ft. Lauderdale you will have to buy 1 ticket from Burbank to Columbus, and 1 from Columbus to Ft. Lauderdale.
-All seats are first-come, first served, however for $10 per flight you can purchase priority boarding. It is recommended to buy the priority boarding when you buy your ticket as there is only a limited amount of them sold on each flight.
-To keep costs down, all communication is currently only available by email, there is no public phone number!
-Changes to flights are $40+change in fare.
-They say that food and beverages will be for sale-so you can’t bring your own, Do you guys think that they will really enforce that?

I will continue to post more information on Skybus, so keep checking back!

Northwest Gets Rid Of Free Standby!

Effective April 24, Northwest Airlines will no longer offer the ability to standby for a same day flight for free.

They casually slipped this policy change into a press release touting a new $25 confirmed standby, which the other major carriers have had for a long time already.(Gotta’ love marketing…)

Confirmed standby allows you to change your flight, on the day of departure, to any other flight departing the same day for $25 if seats are available.

The only difference is that NWA will require you to pay $25, whereas AA, Continental, Delta, And United all allow you to standby for free for a same day flight if you dont want to pay $25 for confirmed standby.

Will the other major carriers match? We’ll have to wait and see…but I can’t imagine at least a couple not going along with NWA…

Clarification On The Annual Fee Of A Credit Card…

Based on the apparent confusion of some commenters in the “On The Road” post, I figure this may help some people out.

Apparently people that signed up for the Amex Business Platinum card during the $250 cash back promo haven’t yet been charged the $300 annual fee.
I know I wasn’t, and at least 2 other people haven’t been as well.

Normally a credit card with an annual fee will bill you that fee in the first 2 statements of the card.

Yossi asked in the comments,
“How do you know that when you cancel(the amex plat.) they wont charge you for all the time you had the card??”

I may have never fully explained this, which is an oversight on my part.

When you sign up for a card with an annual fee, or if you sign up for a card which is free for the first year, you are never forced to pay the annual fee.

As long as you didn’t pay the statement with the annual fee charge on it you can call up the credit card and tell them that you do not agree to pay the annual fee.

One of two things will happen, either they will tell you that you may continue using the card for another year for free, or that you must cancel the card.

However, they will not and cannot force you to pay the annual fee!

In the case of the -$250 Amex Platinum, you can request the $250 back as a check, enjoy all of the amazing benefits for the year, and whenever they charge you the fee, just cancel the card!

So you never have to worry about cancelling a card before 12 months are up-just monitor your statements for the charge!(Or better yet, follow my strategy for cancelling cards in the knowledgebase)

Also of note, many companies, including AMEX will pro-rate the annual fee even if you’ve already paid it. So if a card has a $120 fee, but you cancel it 2 months after paying the fee, they will refund the $100.
I know Chase will not pro-rate, I’m not sure about other companies-feel free to comment if you have first-hand experience with another company.
