Instead of selling 1 item for 24 hours, for the next 24-72 hours woot will be selling lots of stuff for very short periods of time-expect some very good deals-but don’t expect them to last more than a couple minutes!

“For a limited time, one $5 charge covers standard shipping on all your Woot orders within the same calendar day!

You heard us right. After you pay the initial $5 standard shipping charge on your first Woot order of the day, everything else you buy before midnight Central time gets free standard shipping.

That goes for any order, of any size, from any site in the Wootosphere. Buy from Woot, then grab a new tee at Shirt.Woot. Shop for the kids at Kids.Woot and yourself at Home.Woot. One $5 charge ships it all.”

Will this be the time you finally get a legendary BOC?

Trip Report: United DO 2012 In Chicago

-Find more articles like this by clicking on the “Trip Notes” tab on top of the DansDeals banner at the top of this site.

I flew last week to Chicago to experience the tail end of Star MegaDo 4. Hundreds of frequent flyer enthusiasts from forums like Flyertalk and Milepoint get together and fly around the world together and meet with various airline and hotel executives. Star of course refers to Star Alliance. A DO (pronounced like the word do or due) is simply a get-together while a MegaDo is a really big get together. Space to attend these events is always quite limited and there is a cost from $1,000 up to $5,000 depending on how much of the event you want to attend (domestic or international+domestic) and what class you’ll be sitting in on the plane. Participants were treated to flying a brand new United 787 Dreamliner among many other goodies.

I was invited to attend the United portion of the DO in Chicago for free so that’s what I’ll talk about. United billed it as their “inaugural” DO, so this will likely become an annual event. I’ll also cover the hotel I stayed in, the local DDF (DansDeals Forum) DO, and a small part of the local kosher scene that I experienced.

This is not my typical vacation trip report, rather it is a long and technical trip report about United Airlines. If you slog through it I’d love to hear your feedback in a comment and whether I should cover other such events in the future.

100 Free Starpoints?

Starwood has a promotion for 100 free Starpoints if you add a travel wish to their map.

Officially it’s limited to the first 5,000 people, however when I just added my wish (8,169 to Bora Bora) it said that I would receive my points in 6 weeks.

Which means either that:
-Many of the entrants did not add their SPG numbers after making their wish so they won’t be receiving their points and they weren’t counted in the 5,000.
-Or that Starwood isn’t enforcing the 5,000 person limit.
-Or that Starwood wrote that I’ll be getting the points but really didn’t mean it due to a glitch.

Either way I figured I’d post and let you decide if it’s worth 2 minutes of your time. If you enter post a comment after claiming your points with what the message says and what number wish you had.

Matched On Ink Plus

I’ve already done several successful 3BMs and 4BMs with all of the major banks this year and I went for a few Chase business cards before they released some better offers yesterday.

I even got approved for an Ink Plus and Ink Cash card on the same call to Reconsideration by proactively offering to shift over part of the credit line from another card and now I have all 4 Ink cards.
That bumped me up to 8 active Chase consumer cards and 5 active Chase business cards that I am the primary cardholder on. Can anyone here top that?

Anyway I wrote a secure message on Chase.com to please match my Plus card so that I only need to spend $5,000 instead of $10,000 and first I got back a message asking for an invitation code. I wrote back that this is a public offer and that I would like a supervisor to respond to the secure message and they had no problem offering me the 50,000 points even if I only spend $5,000. So if you applied within the last few months for the Ink Bold or Plus card go ahead and get matched if you want a $5K hurdle instead of a $10K hurdle.  And don’t be afraid to ask for a supervisor to respond to the message if needed.

Same goes if you applied for a Southwest card in the past 3 months and didn’t get 50,000 points.

United: Fly To Europe For Just 48,000 Miles Round Trip Instead Of 60,000 Miles.

Update: Today is the final day for this promotion. Take advantage of the stopovers you can make as illustrated below and you can check out multiple cities for just 48K miles!

Originally posted on 11/06:

United Offer Linky

These are bookable now online on United.com.

You can view a list all of the cities that United serves in Europe on this Wikipedia link. Or view United’s route map here or United’s interactive route map here.

Although the rules say that stopovers are no permitted and that open jaws are only valid for airports in the same region like JFK and EWR I searched for a flight using “multiple destinations” from Los Angeles to NYC for a week and then Newark to Paris and Paris back to Los Angeles and it priced out at just 48,000 miles.

Or from Newark to Zurich for a week and then from London to Los Angeles and finally from LA back to JFK is 48,000 miles as well.

-Travel between 01/15/13-03/13/13
-Valid only on United, not on partner airlines.
-Reduced award mileage prices apply only to travel on United- and United Express®-operated flights. Not applicable on flights operated by other airlines.
-Valid for travel to/from the US48, Alaska and Canada to/from Europe.
-Valid for coach saver award only.
-Stopovers are not permitted.
-Round-trip travel is required.
-This offer cannot be applied to previously issued tickets.

Need United miles?
You can earn them on an United credit card or you can transfer points instantly with no fees from Chase Ultimate Rewards cards including consumer cards like the Freedom Visa, Freedom Mastercard, Sapphire Preferred Visa, Sapphire Non-Preferred Visa, and Sapphire Non-Preferred World Mastercard. They can also be earned from business cards like Ink Bold, Ink Plus, Ink Classic, or Ink Cash.  You or your spouse needs a Sapphire Preferred, Ink Bold, or Ink Plus to actually transfer points to United.

Updated Chase Ink Offers

-Want To Boost Your Credit Score? Spend On Business Cards Instead Of Consumer Cards.
-A Rundown Of The Chase Ultimate Rewards Program And Ultimate Rewards Cards
-Chase Ink Offers Being Updated

———————————————————————————-

It’s Tuesday and as promised here are the new offer links for the Chase Ink cards.  If any of the links below aren’t working you can try opening them in a different browser, or browsing incognito.  This is always a good strategy when a card offer says expired or unavailable as often it’s just a browser cookie issue. In IE and Firefox you can access this mode by holding down Ctrl, Shift, and P buttons on your keyboard. In Chrome you can access this mode by holding down Ctrl, Shift, and N. Then just return to DansDeals.com and click on the card offer you want and it should work for you.

-Chase Ink Bold and Chase Ink Plus now give 50,000 points each for spending just $5,000 in 3 months.  This is down from $10,000.

Chase Ink Classic and Chase Ink Cash now give 20,000 points each for spending $3,000 in 3 months.

After my most recent business 3BM and I now have all 4 of these cards and they are still fully churnable in my experience.  I was even able to get 2 Ink cards approved on the same reconsideration call by moving credit around from other cards.

You can read more about these cards and their perks (lounge passes, etc) in the related links at the top of this post.  Bonus point categories include 5 points per dollar on telecom/cell phones, cable, internet, and office supply stores and 2 points per dollar on gas and lodging or dining on the Ink Cash card.

Getting a business card is quite simple.  You don’t need to be a traditional “business owner.”

For example if Joe Smith sells items on Ebay or on Amazon, or has any other side business/hobby and wants a credit card to better keep track of business expenditures he can just open a business credit card for “Joe Smith Sole Proprietorship” as the business name.  You don’t need to file any messy government paperwork to be allowed to do that.
Just be sure to select “Sole Proprietorship” as the business type and just use your social security number in the Tax Identification Number field as well as in the social security number field.

I’ve had business cards since I turned 18 as a Sole Proprietor and never had a problem getting approved with reconsideration if needed.
You can reach Chase business reconsideration at 800-453-9719.  You can offer to move over part or all of the credit line from a consumer or business card to get a business card approved.

Need help meeting a spend hurdle? Don’t forget that you send $1,000/month via your credit card to anyone for free via Amazon Payments.  And they can send it back to you via their credit card or via a 3rd party who can put $1,000 on their card and send it back to you.

And of course you can stock up on gift cards to stores like Amazon or just a prepaid credit card (prepaid credit cards carry a fee of about 1%) at office supply stores on Ink cards and earn 5 miles for every dollar you spend.  At a value of about 1.9 cents per Ultimate Rewards point that’s like a 9.5% rebate.  Office supply stores like Office Max, Office Depot, and Staples all have large gift card sections and they even have occasional weekly promotions to buy gift cards, so check your Sunday circulars as they make it a cinch to meet a spending threshold.

When you buy $5,000 worth of gift cards or prepaid credit cards from an office supply store on a new Ink Bold or Ink Plus card you’ll have a whopping 75,00 points (50,000 points from the signup bonus and 25,000 points from the office spending.)  Coupled with bonus rebates on gift cards and finding ways to liquidate them for free like with Amazon or Bluebird it can all get pretty addictive.

Don’t have the money right now to pay off all those gift cards that you’re stocking up on to meet a spending threshold? Obviously don’t spend more than your needs, but all of the Ink cards besides the Bold card have 6 months of 0% interest on purchases (and balance transfers) and as a business card that balance won’t even show up on your credit report, so it won’t hurt you like it would on a consumer card! Just be sure that you’ll have the funds to cover your purchases in 6 months before they start charging interest. And of course you will have to make the minimum payments as well.

Also bear in mind that places like Plastic Jungle and CardPool will buy gift cards off of you.  People also buy and sell gift cards on the DDF Goods For Sale board.

HOT! Delta: Fly Chicago To Tel Aviv For Just $640.97 Round Trip With Tax!

Update #3, 11/12: This deal is alive once again for $640.97 round-trip from Chicago or $709.77 from NYC with the workaround method below in Update #1!
HT: MEIR613, via DDF

Update #2, 11/10: Dead!

Update #1, 11/09: There is a sale right now from NYC to Chicago. You can book a one-way for $43.80 on Spirit (if you enjoy fees) or for $68.80 on Delta.
For example you can book a Delta ticket on 12/04 from LGA to Chicago for $68.80 and then book a separate ticket for Chicago-Tel Aviv from 12/04-12/12 or 12/04-12/18 for $640.97 for a total of $709.77. Delta will check your luggage all the way through to Tel Aviv.
Your flight to Israel would be via Chicago and JFK but the return would just be the nonstop in JFK as I explain below.
That’s a savings of over $450 per person compared to just flying nonstop from JFK both ways.

Thus a sample itinerary would be:
12/04, Delta 5941, LGA-ORD, 11:15 AM-12:57 PM
12/04, Delta 3371, ORD-JFK, 3:05 PM-6:22 PM
12/04, Delta 268, JFK-TLV, 9:10 PM-2:40 PM
12/18, Delta 269, TLV-JFK, 12:40 AM-5:45 AM
And you can throw away the final leg back to Chicago if you just want to get off in JFK, even if you have luggage.

Again, you do need to fly to Chicago to pick up the flight. If you miss the Chicago-JFK flight your entire itinerary will be canceled!

———————————————————————————

-Bookable on Orbitz (with regular mileage earning, free cancellations until 11pm ET the day after you book, and price assurance refunds) or direct from the airline.

-Earn over 5 points per dollar with Chase Freedom (up to $1,500 per quarter with registration), or 3 points per dollar with American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card, or 3 points per dollar with The Business Gold Rewards Card® from American Express OPEN, or 2.14 points per dollar with Chase Sapphire Preferred.

The flight is from Chicago to Tel Aviv via JFK and earns 12,835 Delta miles.

If you’re from NYC you can take a one-way flight to Chicago on American using 7,500 BA Avios or 12,500 miles on other airlines to pick up the flight.  You can’t just pick up the flight from JFK.

However on the return you can fly nonstop to JFK, where everyone must pick up all of their bags and go in line to recheck them, so you can just take your bags and leave the airport without any problems.

If you are from other cities like Cleveland, Detroit, Pittsburgh, or even Kansas City it’s just 9,000 BA Avios (which can be transferred from all 3 major transferable point currencies, Membership Rewards, Ultimate Rewards, and Starwood) to fly round-trip to Chicago.

The outbound flight must take place between 11/22 through 03/14.
You can stay in Israel for up to 30 nights.

There are tons of available dates, here are just some sample valid dates:
11/22-11/28
12/04-12/18 (Chanukah)
12/09-12/24
01/07-01/15
01/21-02/05
02/17-03/04 (Purim)
03/03-03/10
03/13-04/08 (Pesach)

To help find other valid dates check the Orbitz box to search “3 days before and after” to help find other valid dates.

Or you can read about using ITA Software and use their awesome month-long calendar search to help find cheap flights.

Follow @DansDeals on twitter and you’ll get a tweet when a deal is posted on DansDeals.com! You can even opt-in to get a text message (and choose which hours of the night not to bother you) whenever DansDeals.com is updated!

Chase Ink Offers Being Updated

Update: These changes will happen tomorrow morning.
If you want the better expiring 25K Ink Classic or Ink Cash bonus offers, or if you want a business card offer that gives points after the first purchase, or if you want to attempt a double bonus you’ll want to apply now. Otherwise my links will be updated at some point tomorrow with the new offers, as described below.

Originally posted on 11/10:

Related post: A Rundown Of The Chase Ultimate Rewards Program And Ultimate Rewards Cards

I recently wrote about the advantages to using business cards over consumer cards and how anyone can get a business card.

On Tuesday my Ink links will switch over to new offers, as follows.

Currently my links for the no annual fee Ink Classic and Ink Cash cards offer 10,000 bonus points after your first purchase and another 15,000 bonus points for spending $5,000 in 3 months.
On Tuesday that will change to 20,000 points for spending $3,000 in 3 months.

So with those cards if you just want to spend $1 or if you can do $5,000 in spending you will want to apply by Monday to get in on the current offer as you will be better off the way it is now.
If you can hack $3,000 but not $5,000 you’ll want to hold off for sometime on Tuesday when they switch over.

Currently my links for the premium cards with $95 annual fees (the fee is waived for the first year), Ink Bold and Ink Plus offer 25,000 bonus points after your first purchase and another 25,000 bonus points for spending $10,000 in 3 months.
On Tuesday that will change to 50,000 points for spending $5,000 in 3 months.

So with those cards if you just want to spend $1 you will want to apply by Monday to get in on the current offer.
If you can hack $5,000 of spending you’ll want to hold off for sometime on Tuesday when they switch over.

If you have already applied for the current offer and want the new offer then you can call Chase and ask them to send a request to their marketing department to be matched to the new public offer. They should send you a letter confirming the match. This method usually works for better for matching than sending a secure message. If you do send a secure message you will probably have to resend the request and ask for it to be looked over by a supervisor who can approve a match to a public offer. It may help to wait until Tuesday when the new offer is implemented systemwide, including in their retail branches.

I signed up myself for 3 Chase business cards via 3BM last week and got all of them approved already via Chase Business Reconsideration (800-453-9719) by shifting around credit lines, so I’ll update how that matching works for out for me. There was just 1 credit pull made.

Need help meeting a spend hurdle? Don’t forget that you send $1,000/month via your credit card to anyone for free via Amazon Payments.  And they can send it back to you via their credit card or via a 3rd party who can put $1,000 on their card and send it back to you.

And of course you can stock up on gift cards to stores like Amazon or just a prepaid credit card (prepaid credit cards carry a fee of about 1%) at office supply stores on Ink cards and earn 5 miles for every dollar you spend.  At a value of about 1.9 cents per Ultimate Rewards point that’s like a 9.5% rebate.  Office supply stores like Office Max, Office Depot, and Staples all have large gift card sections and they even have occasional weekly promotions to buy gift cards, so check your Sunday circulars.

Don’t have the money right now to pay off all those gift cards that you’re stocking up on to meet a spending threshold? Obviously don’t spend more than your needs, but all of the Ink cards besides the Bold card have 6 months of 0% interest on purchases (and balance transfers) and as a business card that balance won’t even show up on your credit report, so it won’t hurt you like it would on a consumer card! Just be sure that you’ll have the funds to cover your purchases in 6 months before they start charging interest. And of course you will have to make the minimum payments as well.

Also bear in mind that places like Plastic Jungle and CardPool will buy gift cards off of you!  People also buy and sell gift cards on the DDF Goods For Sale board.

Save $25 Off $100 At Costco.com With AMEX Link, Like, Love!

Update #2: Registration is now full.

———————————————————————

Update, Things I’ve learned:
-I can now confirm that I have received the credit multiple times using the same Facebook account by unsyncing and resyncing a new card.
-I just tested unsyncing and resyncing twice even before receiving the first refund. I did get the email confirmation for both purchases, so that appears to work as well, though I won’t know that for a fact until later this week.
-This will work on a Costco cash card.
-If you don’t have a Costco membership you can buy one when logged into a friend’s Costco.com account. You can use a Costco cash card to shop at Costco stores even if you do not have a membership.
-The credit will post within 4 days of the charge hitting your account.
-This will work on primary and secondary cards.
-This will work even if you don’t get a confirmation email from AMEX for spending on each of your cards.
Thanks again AMEX for 25% off everything at Costco, I’m stocking up on all my cards. It’ll be interesting to see how long several thousand dollars at Costco will last us…

You’ve got to love the plethora of AMEX promotions like Small Business Saturday, Link, Like, Love, Foursquare, Twitter, Gift Chain, NYC Mix-n-Match Promo, and tons of other promotions that American Express runs all year long.  Plus they all work with additional cardholders as well, making the annual fees on their cards easily pay for themselves and then some.

Rumor Confirmed: Chase Eliminating Freedom Exclusives Program.

Post update #4: Just as a reminder, today is the final day to get a Freedom card and qualify for Chase exclusives.  People are still having success confirming their enrollment in the Exclusives program by sending a secure message.

If you are not instantly approved for a Freedom card then you should call reconsideration right after applying at 888-270-2127 to get it approved.

Remember you generally only get 1 credit pull no matter how many different cards you apply for from the same bank on the same day.

————————————————————————————-

Post update #3: It may or may not be too late to join this party.
DDF member chff had success on his brand new Freedom account confirming that existing Freedom cardholders will still be linked for Exclusives within 1-3 months.
Read the comments starting from here along with my suggestions to someone else who had less luck with a secure message and later reports from several commenters who have opened both a Freedom card and a checking account and received positive responses as well.

So for now it seems you can still get in before the door gets shut for good on Sunday.
————————————————————————————-
Post update #2: My own Chase business banker has confirmed to me in writing that the Freedom Exclusives program is indeed ending and is being grandfathered for existing customers.  The last day to have a Freedom card and a Chase checking account is 11/10.  Chase has been very good with grandfathered programs, I still have Ink Bold with Exclusives from last year though that card is permanently discontinued for new customers (though some people have reported success enrolling in that program even after last year’s November deadline).  And people still are earning United elite qualifying miles on the discontinued Continental Presidential Plus card.

If you want to have the best no-annual fee credit card on the market right now then grab the Freedom card and open a checking account with Chase ASAP before the Exclusives program goes away forever.

The original rumor I heard and reported back on 10/22 was that Chase might keep the Exclusives program for Freedom in some form but downgrade it, but at this point that remains unconfirmed.

Freedom with Exclusives makes any purchase under $90 more valuable to be put on Freedom than to be put on a great card like Starwood. Small purchases, like parking meters or a small pump of gas, become downright lucrative with Exclusives. And it makes almost all purchases more valuable on Freedom than they are on Sapphire Preferred, except for purchases made abroad and for 2.14 Sapphire point categories when they are not a 5 point category with Freedom.

If you do get a Freedom card and/or a checking account now I would recommend that you send a secure message from Chase.com to ask about the Exclusives program and if the linkage can be expedited. They’ll respond with details of the program and will say that they can’t expedite it, but you will have in writing that the link will happen within a couple months and you will be grandfathered.
————————————————————————————-

Post update, 10/30: While my previous source for this rumor requested anonymity, DDF user ahecht37 reports that his Chase private banker has informed him that these changes are true and will go into effect for cards opened on or after 11/11. Cards opened before then will be grandfathered.
Again, I have not independently confirmed this rumor nor can I confirm the 11/11 date, but all indications are that this rumor is unfortunately true and will be happening in November.
————————————————————————————-
This was originally posted on 10/22:

-Chase Freedom Mastercard-Earn $100 cash back (in the form of 10,000 Ultimate Rewards points) when you spend $500 in 3 months.
-Chase Freedom Visa-Earn $100 cash back (in the form of 10,000 Ultimate Rewards points) when you spend $500 in 3 months.

The Chase Freedom card with Exclusives is just too darn valuable. I never understood why it’s so much better than the premium Sapphire Preferred card in many aspects (besides for travel/dining purchases, spending in foreign countries, the ability to transfer all Chase points into miles, and that the Sapphire Preferred is one sweet looking metal card).

The regular Freedom card is already quite valuable with no annual fee and 1 point per dollar or 5 points for rotating categories.
When you have a checking account your card gets upgraded within a couple months of getting the card to Exclusives (you can also send a secure message to expedite the process) where you also get 10 points every time you use your card and 10% bonus points on all spending.

Those points can be transferred to airlines/hotels if you or your spouse has a Sapphire Preferred, Ink Bold, or Ink Plus making them about twice as valuable as cash back.  Having one of those premium cards along with Freedom and checking is what I coined the “Chase Trifecta.”

In other words if you pay a 5 cent library fine with the card you get back 11 miles which are worth 4 times the fine you just paid!
Or if you pay 25 cents for parking at a muni-meter your parking is significantly discounted due to the 10 points you get every time you swipe your card.

I received a tip from a source that I believe to be reliable that sometime in November the program will be grandfathered for existing customers and downgraded for new customers.

Last November Chase eliminated the Ink Bold Exclusives program completely. It used to offer 1.2-1.675 miles per dollar on all purchases.
I posted back then from a contact of mine that the program was ending and that people that applied before the deadline would be grandfathered and that’s exactly what happened. People that got the card by the deadline in November are still grandfathered into that program but you can’t get that card anymore.

The rumor that I’m hearing is that Chase will be eliminating the 10 points per transaction bonus. Additionally they will no longer give the 10% Exclusives bonus monthly, instead it will just post in February for the previous year, similar to how the 7% Sapphire Preferred bonus works.

Again, this is all just a rumor I am passing along to you.  I am not passing this along as a confirmed fact, but better to be informed than be surprised, no?

If you don’t yet have Freedom with Exclusives you better hurry up if you don’t want to miss the greatest no fee credit card that’s ever existed!  If you have a Freedom card but don’t yet have a Chase checking account you should signup for one soon if you want to be grandfathered!  There are coupons you can buy on eBay to get up to $200 cash for opening a Chase checking account.
