Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook Linky

“There aren’t a lot of 13.3-inch ultrabooks that deliver such a well-rounded balance of portability, power, and style as the XPS 13. It’s the perfect machine for business travelers and on-the-go professionals, thanks largely to its ultra-slim profile, low weight, and fantastic battery life of eight hours.* This is one tough PC too. Its display is made of edge-to-edge, bonded Corning Gorilla Glass for extreme durability and scratch-resistance, and its carbon-fiber base is as strong as aluminum but much lighter and cooler to the touch.

The XPS 13 is powered by the Intel Core i7 processor and 4 GB of RAM, giving you plenty of speed and responsiveness for multitasking. Whatever you’re doing—editing videos and photos, plowing through spreadsheets, creating presentations, downloading music—you can count on speedy, glitch-free performance. There’s also a 256 GB solid state drive that delivers lightning-fast bootup, shut down, and sleep-resume times—much quicker and more responsive than standard hard-disk drives. It also adds an extra layer of protection against bumps and drops since it has no moving parts.

Hands-on, the XPS 13 delivers a comfortable typing experience with a well-spaced, island-style keyboard. It’s also backlit—perfect for working in dimly lit plane cabins or anywhere the lights are low—and spill-resistant to guard against minor liquid mishaps. There’s also an elegant, all-glass touchpad that’s gesture-enabled for scrolling, zooming, dragging, and dropping.”

Specs:
-Intel Core i7-2637M 1.70 GHz with Turbo Boost Technology up to 2.80 GHz
-Windows 7 Professional
-13.3″ HD WLED 720p (1366 x 768)
13.3-inch HD display delivers edge-to-edge views by fitting into a footprint similar to an 11-inch laptop.
-4GB RAM
-256 GB SSD
-Intel HD Graphics 3000
-802.11b/g/n WiFi
-Bluetooth

4BM Success!

Update for all of the naysayers: All of the points from these 4 churned cards (30K Starwood+30K Starwood+25K MR+30K Delta) have posted automatically.  Additionally I now have received 8 elite stay credits and 20 elite night credits this year from my 4 currently active Starwood cards.

I’ve been doing 2BMs and 3BMs since I started blogging back in 2004. I did it on a whim with 3 Citi AA cards and got 3 instant approvals and coined the method to my madness the “3 browser method” and its made the rounds online ever since. I used to do that every 60-90 days on those cards, but in recent years Citi has gotten much tougher with AA card approvals for people who have had the card in the past.

I recently wrote about the process of a 3BM and an AOR in this post. The advantage is that you increase your odds for instant approvals and you limit the number of hard pulls.  I’ve been known to do a few 3BMs with different banks (Chase works well for me also) as close to the same time as possible.

This past May I did a 3BM with American Express for the Delta Gold Consumer, the Premier Gold, and the Platinum Consumer card. All were approved within a few days without having to call and the points posted for all of them although I have had them all in the past.

You can check approval status with this online tool.

This past Sunday I was feeling brave and for the first time decided to try for 4 cards from American Express. I applied for the Starwood Consumer card and the Premier Gold Consumer card first and then followed up a couple minutes later with the Starwood Business card and the Delta Gold Business card.

I had no instant decisions, but by Friday I had 3 approvals without speaking to anyone. For my last card I got a voicemail to call them up. I gathered my courage and called up, chatted with the offshore rep about his dislike to work on the weekend and his love to relax with a smoke and a bourbon, and after a few minutes he just verified that my address was correct and approved me on the spot.

After that I signed up yet again for Citi Identity Monitor for $1 for the first month (using Citi’s own virtual card number program so that I won’t be charged extra if I forget to cancel) and confirmed that I only had received 1 credit pull for my May 3BM and 1 credit pull for my August 4BM with American Express. In OH, American Express pulls from Experian and Chase pulls from Transunion.

If you make no income on the books I wouldn’t recommend doing this with American Express, but as long as you make something on the books (a DDF member recently passed a financial review with just $6K on the books even though he reported income many times that) you should not have a problem passing a financial review should it ever come to that.

I have had 3 Starwood cards in the past, but this is my first time having 4.  I’ll let you know if I get 8 elite stay credits from this!

Total haul with the limited time promotions will be 60K bonus Starpoints, 25K bonus MR points, and 30K Delta miles.  Plus I can’t wait for Small Business Saturday or for the next AMEX promotion like Gift Chain with so many cards!  Of course my local restaurant looked at me like I was nuts for paying my bill with 4 different credit cards all signed up for $5 off $10 with AMEX Foursquare!

For those keeping score at home, my current active card lineup with American Express is 9 cards:
-SPG Consumer #1
-SPG Consumer #2
-Delta Gold Consumer
-Platinum Consumer
-Premier Gold Consumer #1
-Premier Gold Consumer #2
-SPG Business #1
-SPG Business #2
-Delta Gold Business

And I have 10 active Chase cards:
-Sapphire Preferred Visa
-Sapphire Preferred World Mastercard
-Ink Bold Business (with Chase Exclusives linked)
-Ink Classic Business
-Freedom Visa (with Chase Exclusives linked)
-Hyatt Visa
-United MileagePlus Explorer Visa
-United Club Mastercard
-United MileagePlus Explorer Mastercard
-Southwest Visa

Tonight Only: Save 15% Off Alitalia Flights!

Update #2: The 15% off code is: NTSPUS15
———————————————————–
Update: It appears that since the last time this promo ran a couple weeks ago Alitalia has eliminated partner airlines (like Delta) from their site.  You are now limited to Alitalia flights, though I did see someone codeshare flights (e.g. JFK-Venice) with Alitalia flight numbers on Delta aircraft for sale.
If you are using ITA to find cheap dates to fly you’ll want to use code AZ+ to search only Alitalia flights.

———————————————————–

From 8pm tonight through 7:59am EDT tomorrow morning, tickets booked on Alitalia.com are 15% off with an E-Coupon code that will be published at 8pm.
The code is entered on the page after selecting your flights.
You can book Delta and other Skyteam flights on Alitalia.com.
Travel must begin by 03/31/13.

Want to find cheap flights with flexible dates? You can even search for flights from your closest departure airports to anywhere in Europe! Just use the nearby airports functionality and increase the default mileage range.

Read about using ITA Software here and use the following advanced routing code to limit the calendar search to only Skyteam flights:
/ alliance skyteam
Alternatively use code DL+ to find only Delta flights or use code AZ+ to find only Alitalia flights.
Remember to use the code in both the departure and return fields.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once you find a cheap date just go to Alitalia’s site to confirm they have the same price and be ready to buy it at 8pm with the 15% off code.  Unfortunately Alitalia’s site won’t display all of the flight options like ITA or Orbitz does, so you are limited to what it can find if you want to use the 15% off coupon.

Note that the Alitalia site is very buggy and this deal may not work for some flights so just keep trying other dates or flights until they work for you!

Using ITA To Find Cheap Airfare When Your Dates Are Flexible

Google’s ITA Software is the most powerful airfare search engine out there.  It won’t sell you any tickets, but you can use it to find tickets and then book the tickets from another site, like from Orbitz or directly from the airline.

There are endless commands you can use to customize your search on ITA, but if you are a beginner just take a look at the calendar option.

When I search for valid dates on deals, such as for tickets to Israel, I’ll always hop onto ITA to help sniff out the cheapest dates to fly.

For example searching from NYC to Cleveland.  You can click “nearby” to add other airports like Akron/Canton.. Click on “See calendar of lowest fares” and enter any date. Then enter a length of stay for up to 7 days, for example 5-12.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Searching like that it’s easy to find dates for as low as $90 round-trip including tax:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I limited a search to nonstop flights only from Cleveland to Los Angeles and found results for just $211 with tax, an incredible price:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are lots of other codes you can use as well. To use them click on “Advanced routing codes” on the search page.
Say you only want to fly on Delta flights, just enter the following the field for advanced codes: DL+
Only want to fly on OneWorld airlines: / alliance oneworld
Don’t like connections shorter than an hour but don’t like to stay in the airport longer than 2.5 hours: / minconnect 60; maxconnect 150
Want to connect in Paris on the way to Israel: CDG

More codes can be found on this DDF thread.

For example here I use / alliance star-alliance ;-redeye to look for only Star Alliance operated flights and to avoid searching for any redeye flights. the ; allows you to add another code and the sign negates all redeyes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here then are prices for flights from NYC to Los Angeles and all surrounding airports on Star Alliance airlines that are not overnight flights:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And by clicking on a date the exact flights are shown:

Goodbye To Free Soymilk And Syrup Flavors At Starbucks…

Related post: Basic Starbucks Spending Strategies.

Starbucks sent me an email (pictured below) about an *enhancement* to their rewards program.

The new benefits are meaningless (C’mon, do people really care that their free birthday drink came by postcard :roll: ) But the takeaway of free soy and free flavors (both are kosher parve) will set you back an extra $1.10 every time.

I’m not surprised that they took this away from Green level member as it just took 5 drinks to earn a very valuable benefit, but they are even taking it away from Gold level members as well.  For Green members there is no real replacement benefit, while for Gold members you will now get a free drink for every 12 that you purchase.  On a $3 drink that means you’ll get $3 back with every $36 of purchases instead of with every $45 of purchase, but not nearly enough to replace the extra $1.10 per drink that ordering with soy and a flavor cost.

There is a Change.org petition with thousands of signatures in case you’re looking to vent your frustration.  People have also been sounding off on their Facebook page.

So, will this change your Starbucks habits?

Spend $20 At Small Businesses In Select Zip Codes With AMEX And Get $20 Back!

Additionally I am happy to report that charities located in the zip codes below work as well. I made a donation to Chabad of North Fulton under the Cumming, GA Big Break and received an email confirmation 36 hours later from AMEX confirming that I would receive a $20 statement credit!

Update: Registration for all areas appears to be full.

Originally posted on 09/24:

You can register for the promotions below now, but you must spend the $20 in a single purchase between September 29 and October 7.

Speaking from personal experience from past promotions:
-This will work on consumer and business AMEX cards, but not on corporate cards, gift cards, or prepaid cards.
-This will also work with 3rd party AMEX cards like those from Citi, however if for whatever reason you do not get credit automatically getting it manually will be extremely difficult.  With AMEX issued cards it’s easy to be credited manually via a secure message online.
-This will work with all of your primary and secondary cards from AMEX, but not with secondary cards from 3rd party issuers like Citi. Of course each card must be registered separately but you are able to use the same email address.
-You can register for all of the promotions below.
-Although there is a list of eligible small businesses for each promo, in the past all small businesses, even those not specifically listed, have worked perfectly.
-These promotions have worked online and in-store.
-Don’t forget that you can always have a store or restaurant split your bill into multiple $20 charges if you have multiple cards.
-Although it says that charities are excluded, in the past it has always worked at charities as well.
-Promotions like these (and the tons of other ones like Small Business Saturday in November and Twitter/Facebook/Gift Chain promos) are how to actually turn a profit on cards like the Starwood Consumer or Starwood Business card with their $65 annual fees after the first free year. There’s still time to order more free secondary user cards now to have for this and other promotions (I have dozens of cards just for stuff like this, though some people have reported being hit with a financial review after ordering too many additional user cards, so don’t do it if you don’t make your income on the books…)

Post a comment of which small business store or website in the zip codes below that you will be spending $20 at!

Last Chance To Change El Al Tickets?

A few DDF members are reporting that El Al has told them that the new deadline for switching from a connecting flight bought during the pricing glitch to a nonstop flight is 09/30.  Whether that will be extended again is anyone’s guess, though it is in El Al’s interest to keep making artificial deadlines to get people to switch over…

People are also reporting that El Al has opened up availability for some flights that previously were not available and that they have been successful changing the dates of their trip by a few months!

I’ve taken some heavy flak in some Jewish media outlets over my publicizing of the deal back in August. In case you missed it, here is a copy of my response to some of the character indictments made of myself as well as more background information that doesn’t seem to be have been understood by some of my critics.  It was published a few weeks ago by the Yated, a Jewish weekly, and was uploaded online with their permission.

Register Now For Q4, Plus Last Week For Q3 Chase Freedom Spending!

Update: 09/30 is the last date for 5+ points per dollar at gas stations and restaurants.  People have reported getting the 5 point per dollar bonus even for gift cards purchased inside the gas station, where you can find gift cards for all kinds of other stores.

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 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.
Some DDF members are still reporting success getting matched from 10K points to 30K points by requesting a match by sending a secure message or 2. Can’t hurt to try!

There is no annual fee for Freedom!

Q4 Activation Linky

-You can earn the bonus points on up to $1,500 of spending between 10/01 and 12/31 on hotels, airline tickets, Best Buy, and Kohl’s..

-You can earn the bonus points on up to $1,500 of spending between 07/01 and 09/30 at any restaurants and gas stations.

Bonuses are on top of 10% bonus points and 10 points per transaction if you also have a Chase checking account.

Of course if you have multiple Freedom cards you can spend $1,500 on each of them.

Don’t have enough to buy right now? Considering buying gift cards at restaurants or gas stations to get a ton of bonus points up front on up to $1,500 of spending and then use the gift cards as needed! I personally value my Ultimate Rewards points at a minimum of 1.9 cents each, so this is like a rebate of almost 10%.

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 or you spouse have a Sapphire Preferred, Ink Bold, or Ink Plus 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.
