Sanyo Xacti E2 Ultra-Compact 8MP Digital Camera And Waterproof Camcorder With SD Card Recording For Just $169.99 Shipped From Buy.com!

Sanyo Xacti E2 Linky

While I don’t have the E2, I used the previous generation of this camera/camcorder, the E1, many times in Hawaii. The underwater snorkeling videos with schools of colorful fish and massive turtles are simply awesome. Besides for that it’s a really slick-looking camera/videocamera and it records right onto a cheap SD card. The E2 adds a much better camera sensor and more megapixels to the previous E1.

You should get about an hour of recording for each 1GB of space on an SD card.

On The Road: Israel Trip Notes, Update #3.

Related:
Update #1
Update #2

Thanks to Amigo for being the official sponsor of Dansdeals.com updates while I’m in Israel! I’m using their USB Modem now to update the site. The card runs on Orange’s HSDPA network and the speeds (about 2 Mbps download and 300 Kbps upload) are great for a wireless card. It has worked flawlessly everywhere in Israel where I have tried to use it and it is invaluably useful!

I almost exclusively use my miles for Business or First class tickets. A coach ticket from the US to Israel on continental is 45K miles each way, but can be purchased for about $600 each way, which means that you’re only getting a value of 1.33 cents per mile. A BusinessFirst ticket though can cost $2,500 each way giving you a value of 4.17 cents per mile.

But what to do when there are no BusinessFirst seats for the dates they you need? Well I got our seats into BusinessFirst just days before departure…

Continental’s Plan B for a BusinessFirst award works surprisingly well once you find an agent who knows about it. Credit goes to FT for the details.
It works like this: If there is a saverpass coach award seat you can call up the international reward desk and ask for a BusinessFirst ticket but be seated in coach and placed on a waitlist for a BusinessFirst seat. For EWR-TLV your account will be debited 57,500 miles for each way.
You will either clear the waitlist into BusinessFirst no later than 24 hours before the flight or the waitlist will expire. If at 24 hours before the flight you still don’t have a BusinessFirst seat then at the airport you have to find an International Concierge or other knowlegdable looking agent and tell them that you are a displaced BusinessFirst customer. If they have no idea what you are talking about tell them to look up “gg onestandby” and review lines 85-89 which spell out the details of this reward. (This is reminiscent of “gg checkpoint line 53″ which you have to reference to show agents how to give you a security pass for you and your guests to access post-security Presidents Club’s if you aren’t flying.) If they need to verify that you have a BusinessFirst reward have them call up the reward desk.
Still not able to get a seat in BusinessFirst? Just call up the reward desk after the flight and they’ll give you a refund of the difference between the standard coach award and the standard BusinessFirst award.

At any rate the flight was very nice. When I flew to Israel 2 years ago in BusinessFirst Continental still had the old video system that cycled through a few movies. The new large touch-screen AVOD system allows to choose from hundreds of movies, TV shows, games, and music. You can pause, fast-forward, and rewind as you please.
For dinner the people who ordered kosher meals got:
-An appetizer bowl of nuts, craisins, and sunflower seeds.
-A first course of a roll and a fish salad.
-A choice of your own personal bottle of kosher red wine or Chardonnay (or both!)
-A main course option of fish or chicken with another roll, fruit, and a chocolate fudge cake.
The kosher Breakfast was cheese blintzes, a roll, J&J reduced fat cream cheese, norman fat free fruit yogurt, a fruit bowl, and a cheese plate.

The seats recline at a 170 degree angle which is fine for sleeping. Continental’s new lie-flat BusinessFirst seats are slated to begin being installed in September.

Immigration at TLV was shockingly easy, we weren’t even asked a single question!

I turned down an upgrade at Budget for a Hyundai I3 hatchback in favor of the Mazda 3. I’m not sure how every rental car company is Israel gets away with making Liability insurance mandatory. By having a World Mastercard they let you decline the CDW coverage, but even if your personal car insurance covers liability they still force you to take their own liability coverage at $14/day, which effectively doubled the rate.

Israeli GPS systems are very hard to use on the english settings. There are so many ways to spell a city and street name that it is very hard to find what you need. Zefat, Zfat, Tsfat, Tzfat, Safed…every city and street probably has half a dozen ways to spell it and only one will work in the GPS. Nevertheless once you find the place you want to go they do an amazing job at navigating, probably better then an American GPS.

When I was looking for hotels for a base in the North I was shocked at the pricing. I know it’s high season and all, but the going rate was about $250/night. There are no Hilton or Starwood hotels any more in the North so I found a Holiday Inn in Tiberias which is part of the Priority Club program.
The paid rate was $250/night and it costs 15,000 PC points/night to stay there. Priority Club normally sells its points at 1.15-1.35 cents per point, so buying them directly from Priority Club wouldn’t yield much of savings. AMEX MR points transfer to PC at a 1:1 basis and Diners club points transfer at a 1:1.25 basis but that would still be a lot of points to transfer for a Holiday Inn.

The solution is Priority Club’s new cash and points redemption option. With the option you can redeem 5,000 points + $60 for a hotel room. Unlike with Starwood’s cash and points option though what actually occurs is that the $60 buys you the remaining 10,000 points that you would need for the 15,000 point Holiday Inn award. If you can the room you will therefore get a refund of 15,000 points! In effect you are thus able to purchase PC points at 0.6 cents per point by using the cash and points workaround. 15,000 points at 0.6 cents per point would make the Holiday Inn Tiberias $90/night which I reserved.

When I went back to the Priority Club’s website the next week I saw that the Holiday Inn Tiberias was on a PointBreaks special of just 5,000 points/night. So I canceled my previous reservation and rebooked for 5,000 points, or just $30/night!

The hotel is located about 1 mile south of the downtown midrachov, so it’s in a much quieter area than the former Sheraton Tiberias which was right on the noisy midrachov. Upon check-in I was given the option of staying in the Golan wing or the Kinneret wing. The Golan wing room was tiny with barely enough room the bad and a bathroom. The Kinneret wing room was much nicer and bigger with a nice entry-room, decent sized bathroom, a couch, a desk, and even a balcony! There was a box of delicious (kosher lamehadrin) chocolate chip cookies, 2 small bottles of red wine, and 2 bottles of water waiting in the room for us.

I’m holding a few days after this, but that’s all I have time for now, I’ve still got a lot to talk about like using gizmo5, Amigo’s push to talk service, and a report on the brand new Mamilla Jerusalem hotel.  Feel free to post comments with your own thoughts and anything I can do to make these trip reports most helpful!

On The Road: NYC And Israel Trip Notes, Update #2.

I’m posting from a nice comfy couch at the Continental Presidents club in Newark, where it’s T-90 minutes until our flight to Israel.

The main Presidents club in Concourse C here is very nice and roomy, and is 2nd only to the expansive 3 floor lounge in Houston terminal E.

I realized that I may have some issues upon entering the Presidents club when I saw that I had 4 potential ways to enter the club for free: My Amex Plat charge card, my Presidential Plus Mastercard, my lifetime PC membership, and my BusinessFirst boarding passes…

It’s hard to explain the exact appeal of the club to someone who’s never visited one, but it definitely improves the entire travel experience.  This morning I had breakfast (Honey nut chex, bananas, and a granola bar) at the Cleveland lounge and now I’m filling up my water bottles with ice cold water for my flight.  Wi-Fi and Alcoholic drinks are all complementary.

The showers here are nothing spectacular but are very nice to have after a long trip.  The shower attendant will even press your clothes and give you a BusinessFirst amenity kit regardless of whether you are flying or not just for the asking!

For those who were asked from my last trip report, on my Airtran flight Skype and Gizmo5 were not blocked, however after placing a call it was only clear for the first 5 seconds, after that all that was heard was digital musical notes.  Go-Go is definitely using some sort of blocking system so as to not allow VOIP.  In addition the system only works when you get above 10,000 feet, it won’t work at the gate.

Here’s my trip outline:

-Renting a Mazda 3 from Budget for 2 weeks for $240 with a corporate rate.

08/24: Continental 84 EWR-TLV: BusinessFirst class.

08/25-08/28: Holiday Inn Tiberias (Normally $250/night, paid $30 a night-more on that in the next report1)

08/28-08/30: TBD. (Kfar Chabad or Jerusalem)

08/30-09/01: Mamilla Hotel, Jerusalem (Normally $300/night, paid 5,000 SPG/night)

09/01-09/07: King Solomon, Jerusalem

09/07: Delta 153 TLV-ATL: BusinessElite class lie-flat seats on the new 777-LR aircraft.

Yikes-Time to head to the gate for the secondary TLV screening…catch ya from the holy land!

Quick Poll: Starwood’s Compromise Option In Jerusalem.

Related and continued from article: Starwood Boots 4 Israeli Sheratons Out Of Their Program

I’ve been dealing extensively with Starwood concerning my reservations at the category 4 Sheraton Plaza in Jerusalem, which is unfortunately no longer a Starwood property.

I had 4 reservations there for cash and points (4,000 points and $60 per night) and received 4 emails each saying that I could move my stays to the luxury Mamilla Hotel at the same rate or if I would cancel my stay I would receive 10,000 Starpoints.

So I requested that all 4 be canceled in exchange for 40,000 Starpoints.  In response Starwood said they are only giving 10,000 Starpoints per member and my stays have been canceled.  Of course I had only asked to cancel them under the assumption that each canceled stay would receive 10,000 Starpoints as was implied in each email. (Was I being presumptuous or is Starwood wrong? Read the email massage from Starwood in the related link above and comment!)

After much negotiation and attempting to reinstate my reservations Starwood has given me 2 options.  Unfortunately they are not offering any cash and points options which is one of my favorite uses of Starpoints. (At the time of booking the Sheraton Jerusalem cost $375/night to book. At 10,000 Starpoints/night that’s a return of 3.75 cents per Starpoint.  But the Cash and points option at 4,000 Starpoints +$60 per night is a return of 7.9 cents per Starpoint.  Of course the other good redemption option is 5th night free which reduces the effective rate on a category 4 hotel to 8,000 Starpoints/night or a return of 4.7 cents per Starpoint.)

1: Stay for 2 nights from Sunday-Tuesday (08/30-09/01) at the Mamilla Hotel at the regular category 4 rate (10,000 points/night) and still receive a 10,000 Starpoint bonus effectively making the cost 5,000 Starpoints/night.

2: Stay for 4 nights from Friday -Tuesday (08/28-09/01) at the Mamilla Hotel at the regular category 4 rate (10,000 points/night) but I would not receive the bonus Starwood point, so the cost would be 40,000 Starpoints.

FYI: The paid rate for the cheapest room at the Mamilla for 2 guests is $293/night so 5,000 Starpoints a night would be a return of 5.86 cents per Starpoint and 10,000 Starpoints a night would be a return of 2.93 cents per Starpoint.

I do still need a place for that weekend, but is it worth 30,000 more Starpoints for the 2 extra nights? Vote what you would do now!

On The Road: NYC And Israel Trip Notes, Update #1.

Note: As this site has always been about travel and deals I’m going to try and incorporate both aspects as I post trip reports from the road.  Regular deals will still be posted so if you don’t like the trip reports-just skip ’em!

I’d like to thank Amigo-US for making possible and being the official sponsor of the updating of Dansdeals.com while I’ll be in Israel!

Right now I’m posting from 30,000 feet in the air aboard Airtran flight #201 from Akron, OH to LaGuardia.

Airtran has GoGo wi-fi on all of their planes and it’s free through 08/31 with code: 159FLT3161

You have to first create an account and then select the $9.95 flight access in order to be able to enter in the code for free access.

Speeds are decent, about 2 Mbps download and 350 Kbps upload.  I can’t say that I would ever spend $10 for internet access on a 1 hour flight, but I’ll sure use it when it’s free!

With my Airtran Elite status my wife Mimi and I both received complementary battlefield upgrades to business class at 20 minutes prior to departure due to some no-shows.  There were half a dozen folks that requested to purchase upgrades after I had requested my elite upgrades, so kudos to the gate agent for not selling them out from under my feet! In the upgrade world a battlefield upgrade is any upgrade that does not clear in advance, and has to be cleared by a gate agent.

XM radio is free on all Airtran flights, but there’s nothing that I really want to listed to at this time of the morning.  It would be nice to have though when flying during a ballgame! There is a nice selection of free premium drinks (non-alcoholic and alcoholic) in business class and there even a few kosher parve snacks like kettle chips and granola bars that are most appreciated.

We leave to Israel on Continental flight 84 next Sunday! It’s been 2 years since I was last there, so I can’t wait!

Know any great activities anywhere in Israel that you’d like to share?  Have something you’d like me to write about from Israel? Post ’em here in a comment!
