Trip Notes: 48 Hours In Boston

We got back on Tuesday from 2 wonderful days in Boston.

A couple weeks ago I asked for your Boston tips and got lots of them, so first of all thanks for your help!  The suggestions were great and anyone going to Boston should definitely look through them as it would be impossible to cover even a fraction of them on such a short trip with a baby.

The flights were purchased for next to nothing with $100 off coupons from Jetblue’s voucher bonanza from last month.

Here are some of my trip notes:

Flight:

-In an era of cutbacks Jetblue really does stand out from the pack.  A free checked bag, leather seats with very good legroom, free TV, free snacks including kosher parve ones like Terra Blue Chips and Popcorners popcorn chips, a full can of pop, but most of all, really friendly agents.  On our return flight for example we were in seats 6C-D.  I decided to purchase extra legroom seat 1C for $25 to increase our odds of being able to use our carseat in 1D or 6D.  6D was eventually taken but the gate agent was more than happy to let us use 1D for the carseat and even came over to us to let us know that 2C-D would be empty as well (although the seatmap showed those and every other seat on the plane as being occupied) so that we would be able to sit close to each other.

Hotel:

-We stayed in a suite at the Fairmont Copley Plaza with 2 free nights and a free suite upgrade from last year’s Fairmont Living Social deal.  The hotel is in a prime location, within walking distance of most the city’s sights.  The suite was massive and nicely renovated but the bathroom was a disappointment, it was oddly cramped and in need of repairs.

Activities:

-The city itself has a wonderful historic, yet clean feel to it.  There’s a great vibe from just walking around its vibrant areas.  We got around on foot and by car, but it can also be done with the subway system.

-While grabbing brunch after we arrived on Sunday we received a great surprise in the form of a Flag Day parade down the main drag in the Jewish enclave of Brookline.  Marchers were dressed in their 17th century finest!

-Later on Sunday we took a ducky tour of the city and river.  You’ll learn about the history of the city in a humorous and fun fashion that will entertain all ages.  Kids can even steer the boat on the river.  Plus you pass by many stops on the Freedom Trail and learn all about the history of our nation’s revolution against the British.  Following the ducky tour with the map they provided also gave us a good sense of direction for the city, so I highly recommend doing it first.  Tours are not cheap, but there are student discounts (in fact most activities in Boston have substantial student discounts).  The part that irked me was the $10 charge for a lap child…talk about a money grab!

-It was very cold on Sunday, with temperatures in the low 50s, and was even colder on the ducky tour, note to self, check the temperature closer than 2 days prior to departure to know what to pack!

-On Monday we started by walking to the Freedom Trail, which is a series of sights connected by a red brick path that pertain to the Revolutionary War.  I bought a highly-rated app for $2.99 but it unfortunately didn’t play nicely with my phone.  So we decided to take a guided tour from the 1st stop.  The tour was very slow and only mildly interesting when it entered a graveyard and my wife decided that she wasn’t going to bring our little one into a cemetery at such a young age and that was that.  We followed the rest of the trail on foot stopping by the shops and stores around Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market.  We finished at the Paul Revere statue and took a $12 cab (that even accepted credit card with ease!) back to the hotel.

-The Sam Adams Brewery has free public tours that are a treat. You get to taste different kinds of hops while learning about the process before getting a free tasting glass and drinking different varieties of pretty much all you can drink free beer.  While drinking they educate you on everything from how to pour beer to how to taste the sweetness, bitterness, and creaminess of a beer.  Afterward they try to upsell you on beers that are only sold in the Brewery (I bit on this) and custom designed beer glasses (and passed on that). Under 21 folk get Root Beer instead of the good stuff during the tour.

-The Fenway Park tour was a highlight for a diehard baseball fan like myself.  Before the tour, we walked the tiny boundaries of the humble outside walls of the stadium.  Then we sat in the original tiny wooded seats (wouldn’t want to sit in those for 9 innings, spring for the sections with new seats!) and the highlight was climbing up on top of the “Green Monstah” with the awe-inspiring view from the seats on top.  Unfortunately the tour doesn’t take you into the dugout or locker room as is included in some tours of other stadiums, but I highly recommend the tour for any baseball or Field of Dream fans.

-The USS Constitution is the world’s oldest commissioned warship and dates back to the 1700s and is a stop on the Freedom Trail.  You can tour it for free with some caveats. It’s closed on Monday, nearby parking is very expensive, adult’s need valid ID, you must wait in a long line before clearing airport-like security, and then wait in another long line to tour or board the ship.  Unfortunately due to the scheduling of our trip and our limited time we only got to see the ship from before security.

Restaurants:

-Without entering any political kashrus debates the limited number of kosher restaurants in Boston (which all did have mashgichim there) were quite good, if not on the small and crowded side.

-Rubins: We ate here for Sunday brunch and Monday dinner.  For brunch we ate indoors I had delicious banana chocolate chip pancakes with home fries and fresh fruit ($10.99).  For dinner we ate Alfresco  and tried the very haimish tasting stuffed cabbage ($9.99) and a very good overstuffed Romanian Pastrami on Marble Rye ($13.99).  Cole Slaw or Potato Salad can be added for $1.  Homemade meat and potato knishes (2 for $5.99) were dry and not very flavorful.

DD rating: 8/10

—————————————————–

Rami’s: We had Monday lunch here.  The place is tiny and packed, not at all conducive to eating with a baby.  The schwarma ($10.95) and felafel ($7.95) though are pretty good, though the schug tasted like it was made with old ingredients and the fries tasted like they were refried one too many times.

DD rating: 6.5/10

—————————————————–

Taam China: We went here for Sunday dinner and Tuesday lunch.  Very good egg rolls ($2.50), and delicious szechuan crispy chicken ($13.50).  My wife got excited by the chicken corn soup ($5.95 for 2) on the menu based on the fantastic version we had in Hong Kong the year before, but it was a disappointment.  Sesame chicken was merely OK.  The szechuan crispy beef ($14.95) was very good.  Rice is not included with dinner (white $1.50, brown $2.50, fried $7.95) The best deal here however is the weekday lunch special served until 3pm. For just $7.50 you can choose from 15 select dishes, like their excellent sweet and sour chicken along with a very good soup like Hot and Sour and white or fried rice.  Yup, a soup, a chinese meal, and the fried rice for lunch are less than price of just fried rice for dinner!

DD rating: 7.5/10

—————————————————–

We walked into Kupel’s but the baked good windows were swarming with dozens of flies…gross.

We skipped Jerusalem pita and Eilat Cafe based on their mediocre reviews in the suggestions post.

All of the restaurants are located on Harvard in Brookline within a few blocks of each other.

Ending British Airways Avios Offers.

Updates:
-The AMEX transfer bonus is dead.
-The hotel transfer bonus must be initiated by today, 06/20!
-The BA credit card offer will end on 07/18.

Originally posted on 05/30:

Some people enjoy moaning how British Airways devalued their miles last year.  Personally I disagree.  They have always charged heavy surcharges for trips across the oceans and I’ve got tons of miles on carriers like American and United that are excellent for flying in premium classes internationally.  While previously I may have paid for short-haul tickets, it sure is nice to be able to fly for just 4,500 Avios (3,000 AMEX points) plus $2.50 each way without any advance notice and without paying any expedite fees.

-Ending 05/31: 50% bonus for transfers from American Express Membership Rewards, 1,000 points=1,500 Avios. (Don’t forget, points can be borrowed from AMEX and paid back with future spending or card bonuses)

-Ending 06/20: 25% bonus for transfers from hotel partners (effective 56.25% total bonus from Starwood, you will get 31,250 Avios for every 20,000 Starpoints transferred)

-Ending 07/18: Chase British Airways Visa: 50K Avios for spending $1, or 75K for spending $10K in 1 year, or 100K for spending $20K in 1 year, plus 1.25-2.5 Avios per dollar spent, and a free companion award ticket certificate on a mileage ticket for spending $30K.

Save $400 On Fuel Surcharges To Israel By Booking Avios Rewards Via Iberia Instead Of British Airways!

Related:
-25% bonus for transfers from hotel partners until 06/20 (effective 56.25% total bonus from Starwood, you will get 31,250 Avios for every 20,000 Starpoints transferred)

Chase British Airways Visa: 50K Avios for spending $1, or 75K for spending $10K in 1 year, or 100K for spending $20K in 1 year, plus 1.25-2.5 Avios per dollar spent
—————————————————–
We all know that using British Airways Avios to go to Israel isn’t a great idea due to fuel surcharges. Of course BA Avios are great for flights within the western hemisphere as those aren’t subject to fuel surcharges and they can be true bargains.

For example:
United miles, Newark to Tel Aviv flying United in coach: 80,000 Miles and $45.10
United miles, Newark to Tel Aviv flying United in business: 120,000 Miles and $45.10

BA Avios, JFK to Tel Aviv via London flying BA in coach: 65,000 Avios and $659.14
BA Avios, JFK to Tel Aviv via London flying BA in business: 130,000 Avios and $969.14
BA Avios, JFK to Tel Aviv via Madrid flying Iberia in coach: 65,000 Avios and $535.92
BA Avios, JFK to Tel Aviv via Madrid flying Iberia in business: 130,000 Avios and $615.92

However you can transfer your BA Avios to Iberia Avios and save on fees for Iberia flights.
With a catch. You can’t transfer Avios from BA to Iberia until you’ve had an Iberia Plus Avios account for at least 3 months.  Once you have had an Iberia account for 3 months just logon to your BA.com account, go to Executive Club>Manage my account>Combine my Avios>Transfer to Iberia Plus.

Once you do the transfer you can book Iberia flights with significantly less fuel surcharges:

Iberia Avios, JFK to Tel Aviv via Madrid flying Iberia in coach: 65,000 Avios and $215.76
Iberia Avios, JFK to Tel Aviv via Madrid flying Iberia in business: 130,000 Avios and $215.76

It’s important to note that while Iberia always has lie-flat seating in business class between the US and Europe they only have lie-flat seating from Madrid to Tel Aviv on certain days of the week.  The A340 has lie-flat seating while the A319 is just coach class that is roped off from coach.

Iberia flies from the following US cities:
Boston
Chicago
Los Angeles
NYC
Miami

Don’t Know When To Use Which Ultimate Rewards Card? Here’s A Chart!

Update, 06/14: I’ve added the United Club card to this chart. While the points earned on it are not Ultimate Rewards points, the most valuable Ultimate Rewards transfer partner is generally going to be United. Though bear in mind that Ultimate Rewards points also have the ability to be transferred to other places like BA, Korean, Southwest, Hyatt, and Amtrak, etc.

Today Is The Last Day to Activate Q2 Chase Freedom 5x Point Categories!

Find other articles like this by clicking on the “credit card posts” tab on top of the DansDeals banner at the top of this site.

Chase Freedom-Earn $100 cash back (in the form of 10,000 Ultimate Rewards points) when you spend $500 in 3 months. There is no annual fee for Freedom!
————————————————–
Today, 06/14, is the final day to activate the Q2 Chase Freedom 5x point categories. Even if you only remember to activate today it will retroactively give you credit for spending made since April 1st!

You can check to see if you have already activated with this tool.

For 04/01/12-06/30/12 the 5 point categories are for all spending at Grocery Stores and Movie Theaters!

Here is a link that explains where you will and won’t earn the 5 points per dollar this quarter.

My local grocery store, Giant Eagle, sells gift cards for dozens of different stores, and they also provide free gas (typically about $6-$12 of free gas) for every $100 of gift cards purchased.  Add to that the 5x Freedom bonus and it’s quite lucrative to stock up on gift cards!

Here is the 5% calendar for the rest of 2012:
Q3: Gas stations and restaurants
Q4: Hotels, airlines, Best Buy, and Kohl’s.

You earn 5 points per dollar on up to $1,500 of spending per quarter.

Although they are called “5% categories” you really get 5 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar spent which can be cashed out for 5% cash. For $1,500 in spending you will earn at least 7,500 Ultimate Rewards points.

However if you have a Sapphire Preferred or Ink Bold card then you can transfer the points over to one of those cards and then transfer them at a 1:1 ratio into much more valuable airline miles (United, British Airways, Southwest, Korean, etc) or hotel points (Hyatt, etc).

Have any Chase checking account as well? You qualify for Chase Exclusives which gives you even more bonus points!

You will earn:
-10% bonus points on top of all base points earned.
-10 bonus points for every transaction you make.

And that’s on top of points for spending in 1% and 5% categories!

For smaller purchases there is no more lucrative card than Chase Freedom if you have Chase checking. Even if you are just buying a cup of Coffee for $2 you should use Freedom over Sapphire Preferred as Sapphire will earn 2.14 points per dollar for a total of 4.28 points while Freedom will earn 1.1 points per dollar plus 10 points, for a total of 12.2 points.

Dan’s note: I recently got the new Keter Chabad Elite Talis (I know I’m a sucker for anything elite 😉 ) with non-slip silk lining and it is awesome! I’ve always wondered why our taleisim were made of such coarse heavy wool. But this new talis is made from much finer wool and is incredibly soft and much lighter weight than other taleisim, it really is a pleasure to daven with!

Starwood NYC Best Rate Guarantee Free Night Promotion Ending Tonight!

Update 2: DEAD!

Update: Although the link below says “discontinued” Starwood has confirmed that they will be honoring this promotion for submissions made by 11:59pm EDT tonight!

Starwood NYC Best Rate Guarantee Free Night Promotion Linky

This promo was supposed to run through 09/04/12, but it was just far too generous.

If you can find one of Starwood’s NYC hotels on another booking site for less than the price on spg.com you get a free night there.

You can use a site like Kayak to help find rates to compare to spg.com

Once you find a site with a lower rate you can fill out this claim form before making any reservation, making sure to write in the comments that you would like the NYC best rate free night and selecting the 2K free Starpoints.

SPG will then get back to your by email or phone and if the rate differential is still there when they verify the claim the night will be free. If the price on spg.com drops lower than the competitor site at the time of claim verification then you won’t get anything.

All submissions for this promotion must be completed by tonight, 06/12, at 11:59pm EDT.

AAdvantage Credit Card Reduced Mileage Awards For July-September 2012!

Update: As part of Citi’s new AA card benefits, Mastercard, Visa, and AMEX Select cardholders get a 10% rebate on all miles redeemed on up to 100,000 miles per year.  Thus a coach reduced award will now cost just 15,750 miles round trip after the instant 7,500 mileage reduction and the 10% (in this case 1,750) mileage rebate.

Reduced Mileage Awards Linky

You can book tickets for 7,500 less miles than American Airlines regularly charges if you have an AAdvantage Select, Executive, or Business credit card.

To book these awards just call AA’s AAdvantage desk at 800-882-8880 and reference the following award code:
7,500 miles off Coach: TD8X7A
7,500 miles off Business/First: UD21X2A

Below is a sample list of some of Q3’s valid destinations, origination is allowed from any US48 City.

While BA Avios may be a better deal for short-haul flights, bear in mind that you pay for each segment when redeeming Avios, whereas with AA miles you pay for the entire journey.

-Atlanta
-Charlotte
-Cincinnati
-Cleveland
-Colorado Springs
-Columbus
-Houston (IAH and HOU)
-Kansas City
-Key West

Starwood Canada Limited Time Offer: 15,000 Bonus Starpoints For Spending $1,000!

Update: DEAD!

Starwood Canada Limited Time Offer Linky

Until 07/31 Canadians can get 15,000 bonus Starpoints (instead of just 10,000) for signing up for the Starwood Canada card and spending $1,000 within 3 months.

Of course 20,000 Starpoints transfers into 25,000 (or even 50,000) miles with dozens of airlines and they are also great when used for Starwood hotel stays with redemption options like unrestricted free nights, 5th night free, cash and points, and nights and flights awards.

Canadian Starwood features:
-Earn 1 Starpoint for every $1 in purchases charged to the Card
-$120 annual fee
-Enjoy a Free Weekend Night Award when you reach $40,000 in purchases each year
-Experience Starwood Gold Preferred Guest status when you reach $30,000 in purchases each year

-Canadians can also get 25,000 Membership Rewards points for signing up for a Business Gold card and spending $3,000 in 3 months. The annual fee is waived for the first year. Plus any year that you reach $50K in spending you’ll get a bonus 15K points and if you can reach $100K in spending you’ll get a bonus 25K points.

-Finally, those north of the border can also get 15,000 points for spending $500 on the consumer Gold card in 3 months.  The annual fee is also waived for the first year. The card earns 2 points per $1 on flights, hotels, car rentals, cruises, gas, grocery and drugstore purchases and one point for every $1 in card purchases everywhere else.

————————————————————————–
Of course the American Starwood Consumer card and the Starwood Business card give 10,000 bonus points each for spending $1 and an extra 15,000 bonus points each for spending $5,000 in 6 months.  For the US version of the card the annual fee is waived for the first year and is then just $65 (easily made back with all of the AMEX promotions like Small Business Saturday and Link, Like, Live, plus of course retention bonuses) and comes with top-notch warranty protection, purchase protection, and return protection on everything bought on your card, on top of earning valuable Starpoints.

Have Avis President’s Club Status? Match To Hertz President’s Circle And National Executive Elite!

As I described in the post about the awesome United Club card benefits, one of the benefits is Avis President’s Club status, which guarantees rental car availability even if the location is sold out, and offers a complimentary two car-class upgrade from intermediate or higher (typically you will receive a premium or luxury car when paying for just an intermediate).

Having Avis status also allows you to pickup cars directly at the terminal in Tel Aviv instead of having to be shuttled to the far off-site car rental facility!

To get President’s Club status once you already have the United Club card just fill out this form or call or 757-687-2008. They will verify that you are a primary cardholder and upgrade your status.

Don’t rent from Avis? You can match the status to equivalent elite status levels with Hertz and National.

Hertz Status Match Offer Linky

National Status Match Offer Linky

Just follow the instructions in those links and you’ll have Hertz President’s Circle and National Executive Elite status in no time!
