Alitalia Does About-Face, Will Be Honoring Dirt Cheap Japanese Tickets!!!!!!

I posted on Saturday evening about insanely cheap Alitalia tickets, including tickets from JFK to Israel for $376.

On Sunday Alitalia emailed everyone that they would not be honoring the tickets and they surreptitiously added new terms to the deal that required flights to leave from Japan.

Now Alitalia has done an about-face and they announced will be honoring all tickets as long as they were not completely free! Was it due to DOT pressure? Facebook or twitter pressure? Who knows, but they’re honoring their original terms!

Additionally they are extending the current 25% off promotion until 10/28.

Trip Notes: Aruba

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

The flight:

In June I flew with my wife and son to Boston thanks to Jetblue’s first mystery coupon bonanza of the year.  When they ran it again last month I thought much bigger (let’s just say that 4BMs are now for sissies) and nabbed free tickets to Aruba for my wife, son, and my mother as well…might as well get some babysitting out of the deal as long as tickets were free!

While Aruba wasn’t our top choice for our first trip to the Caribbean, there are very few Jetblue flights to the Caribbean that leave late enough in the day from Boston or JFK to allow for connections from Pittsburgh. The other options all involved staying in NYC overnight twice, Jetblue does not time their Caribbean flights well for folks coming from connecting cities.

We flew to Aruba last Sunday and arrived into Pittsburgh late Thursday night before driving back home to Cleveland.

Sodastream Jet Starter Kit For Just $59.95 Shipped From Amazon After $20 Rebate!

Sodastream Jet Starter Kit Linky

$20 Rebate Linky (Purchase by 01/31/13, postmark by 02/15/13)

I have a sodastream and it is awesome. No more shlepping cases of seltzer home from the store, I can make it in a few seconds from the comfort of my home for a small fraction of the cost of seltzer from a store.
Best of all I can control exactly how fizzy I want my seltzer, you can make it as weak or as strong as you’d like!  There are no electronics involved and you can even make more seltzer on shabbos.

The included Co2 canister makes 60 1L bottles of seltzer (or way more than that if you don’t put in as much fizz.) You can exchange the canisters at tons of stores nationwide. Bed Bath and Beyond charges $12 for a refill with one of their ubiquitous 20% off coupons or $10 with a $5 off $15 coupon.

The Amazon seller linked to in this post, Chef’s Corner Store, is listed as an authorized retailer on the SodaStream website, you can find them by searching for zip code 80112.

Is Bluebird The Next Dollar Coin Churn?

For years the mint sold dollar coins at face value and allowed you pay with a credit card.  I ordered well into the 6 figures and deposited them into my checking account before the mint finally sent me a letter to take it easy.

Since they stopped selling coins via credit card that left Amazon Payments as a good source for free credit card spending to meet spending thresholds, but that’s limited to $1,000 per month.

Along comes Bluebird from American Express. A card with practically no fees that allows you to send a check to anyone to pay a bill or even to pay off your credit card.

While it can be funded via debit card at Walmart for free the real beauty is that it can be funded with Vanilla Reload cards.
You can buy a Vanilla Reload card at Office Depot stores (except in NYC) with a credit card. There is a $3.95 fee to load $500.

-If you have a Chase Ink Bold, Ink Plus, Ink Classic, or Ink Cash card you earn 5 points per dollar spent at office supply stores. So a $500 Vanilla Reload card purchase earns you 2,500 miles for a $3.95 fee, or 0.158 cents per mile. You can earn 5 points per dollar on the Bold/Plus cards on $50,000 of annual spending and on the Classic-Cash cards on $25,000 of annual spending.
If you spent $24,000 over the course of a year ($2,000/month) you would earn 120,000 miles, enough to fly in business class round-trip to Israel. The fees for the cards would total $189.60.
-Or on a Chase Freedom Exclusives card for example and you would earn 560 miles, or 0.7 cents per point, still a great deal for miles.
-On a Starwood card you would earn 500 Starpoints or 0.79 cents per Starpoint. Of course if you then transfer Starpoints to miles at a 25% bonus that means the miles were bought at an effective rate of 0.632 cents per mile.
-Or of course you can just use this to meet a spending threshold for a signup bonus. The Ink Bold and Plus cards give 50,000 bonus points for spending $10,000 in 3 months, so spending $10,000 at Office Depot on a new card would earn a total of 100,000 miles. The Ink Classic and Cash cards give 25,000 bonus points for spending $5,000 in 3 months.  Read more about applying for business cards in this post.

You can use the Vanilla Reload card to fund your Bluebird card from the Vanilla Reload site and use Bluebird to pay off your credit card bill.  You can also use it to pay any other bills you may have like your mortgage, rent, or utilities, which may raise less of a flag then paying a credit card bill.

It all seems simple enough, I wonder how long it will take for them to plug the loophole?

Beware that Chase won’t exactly be pleased if you run out and max out your Ink card at an office supply store, so take it easy with this aspect and don’t spend too much in one shot.  Don’t say I didn’t warn ya’

Rent An RV For Free One-Way From Vancouver To Toronto Or Montreal And Get $500 In Free Gas!

Cruise Canada needs some RVs brought from Vancouver to Toronto and Montreal so they’ll let you drive one for free for up to 21 days. The RV needs to be brought to Montreal or Toronto by 11/27.

They will reimburse your gas receipts for up to $500 as well. You are allowed to drive in the US and Canada.

6,000 kilometers (3,728 miles) are included for free. Google maps shows that it’s 4,188 kilometers from Vancouver to Toronto and 4,535 from Vancouver to Montreal. It’s more than enough miles to hit up the Grand Canyon (as well as my hometown of Cleveland along the way to share a beer with me for anyone crazy enough to do this) should you so desire 😀

You can use your AA miles or BA Avios to fly on Cathay Pacific’s great business or first class one-way from JFK to Vancouver and then use 4,500 Avios to fly from Toronto or Montreal back to NYC.

A Rundown Of The Chase Ultimate Rewards Program And Ultimate Rewards Cards

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’s Ultimate Rewards has quickly become one of the premier mileage currencies in short time.
They offer instant and fee-free transfers to excellent mileage and points programs at a 1:1 ratio.

Transfer partners include:
United (Star Alliance) is one of the best mileage currencies around. They never charge fuel surcharges, they allow free date changes, they have very flexible routing rules, they allow one-way awards for half the mileage, they have a short-haul award for 20,000 miles, they allow for a stopover and an open-jaw so that you can really maximize an award trip into multiple free trips, they have an around-the-world award to visit tons of cities on one award ticket, and they have dozens of partners to fly on, most of which can be booked on their website.
British Airways (OneWorld) is awesome for short-haul awards. Just 9,000 miles for a round-trip zone 1 or 15,000 miles for zone 2 short-haul awards can be an incredible use of miles.  The zone 3 award for 25,000 miles round-trip can also be a bargain, for example for flights between the west coast and any of the Hawaiian islands. They allow one-way awards for half the mileage. There are no close-in expedite fees. Infants are only charged 10% of the miles on international trips instead of 10% of the full fare like US carriers charge. Plus they don’t collect fuel surcharges on AA within the western hemisphere, on Qantas within Australia, on Air Berlin, Aer Lingus, Alaska, or LAN and you can transfer points to Iberia to limit fuel surcharges there as well.
Korean (Skyteam) offers incredible first class availability and they also have true bargains on partner travel, just 30,000 miles to fly round-trip on Hawaiian or Alaska to Hawaii in coach or 60,000 miles in first.  And it’s just 20,000 miles to fly to Alaska in coach or 40,000 miles in first. You can even get a free stopover on the way to or in Alaska!
Southwest offers a value of about 1.95 cents per point towards award travel. Plus points can be transferred to Airtran for flat-rate awards like business class upgrades, free tickets on Airtran, or even free tickets on any carrier worldwide.
Virgin Atlantic typically has high fuel surcharges, though those have been lowered for coach travel.  An interesting use of their miles is with their Hilton transfer option.  You get 2 Hilton points for each miles transferred, so that’s 2 Hilton points per Chase point transferred to Virgin Atlantic.
Hyatt is one of my favorite hotel award program. You can stay in fantastic world-class hotels that normally cost $1,000 per night or double that in a suite for just 22,000 points in a regular room or 33,000 points in a suite. Award nights start at just 5,000 points. Plus you can funnel points through Hyatt to Southwest to qualify for a free Southwest Companion Pass.
-You can also transfer points to Marriott, Ritz Carlton, Priority Club, and Amtrak.

The beauty of miles over points or cash-back:
The great thing about being able to transfer points into airlines or hotels are the incredible values you can attain.
-A first class ticket to Hawaii can cost $4,000 but you can use 60,000 miles for that same ticket, a value of 6.7 cents per mile. If you were using Capital One points you would need 400,000 points per ticket.
-A last minute ticket or a ticket where you don’t stay for 3 nights from New York to Cleveland costs $1,200 in coach but just 9,000 miles. That’s a value of 13.3 cents per mile. If you were using Capital One points you would need 120,000 points per ticket.
-A first class ticket to Asia can cost $20,000 but you can use 140,000 miles for that same ticket, a value of 14.3 cents per mile. If you were using Capital One points you would need 2,000,000 points per ticket.
-A night at a Park Hyatt in Paris, Sydney, or the Maldives can run $1,100 with tax but you can use 22,000 points for that room, a value of 5 cents per point. If you were using Capital One points you would need 110,000 points per night.
And that’s all besides for the fact that getting a Capital One card costs 3 credit pulls whereas you can get 3 Chase or American Express cards with just 1 credit pull.

Card tiers and transferability:
There are 2 tiers of Ultimate Rewards cards. The ones with annual fees can transfer points into airlines and hotels and the ones without annual fees cannot. However you can always transfer points from a card without an annual fee into a card with an annual fee and any point in time.

You can allowed to transfer points to your spouse’s credit card, so you can accumulate points on Freedom and transfer to your spouse’s Sapphire Preferred. However do not transfer those points to anyone but your spouse’s credit cards as Chase has been shutting down accounts of people that transfer points to other people’s credit cards.

It’s worth noting that so far Chase has not cracked down on people that transfer points directly into someone else’s airline or hotel account. They have only cracked down on people transferring or receiving points from direct credit card to credit card transfer.

Business cards:
Getting a business card is quite simple. 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.
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.

A perk of business card spending is that it doesn’t count against your credit utilization, so you don’t need to worry about the credit affect of using up a majority of your credit line, something that is bad for your credit if done on a personal card even if you pay it off every statement (which is why I pay off personal cards multiple times per month).

It’s also worth remembering that the credit line (and utilization) of business cards are not reported on your personal credit report, thus closing them also won’t effect your score.

Multiple browsers:
You can apply for multiple different cards at the same time from the same bank using different browsers, like Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome. This helps with instant approvals and it limits the number of times your credit is pulled. With American Express you can mix consumer and business cards and only get 1 pull, though with Chase it seems like you will usually get 2 pulls if you apply for consumer and business cards.

Can’t hack the spending thresholds? Amazon Payments can help with that.

I have had no problem earning the bonuses from the same Ultimate Rewards cards multiple times.

———————————————————————————-

Tier 1, Cards that transfer points into miles:

Consumer:
-Chase Sapphire Preferred Visa
This card offers a 40,000 bonus points for spending $3,000 in 3 months. It also offer a 7% points dividend every February for the previous year’s purchases, effectively making the card earn at least 1.07 points per dollar spent. You will also earn 2.14 points per dollar spent on restaurants, airfare, hotels, car rentals, charges in airports, travel agencies, caterers, timeshares, trains, buses, taxis/limos, ferries, bridges, tolls, and parking, and 3.21 points per dollar if booking travel via the Chase booking tool. There is no foreign exchange fee. There is no fee the first year but a $95 fee thereafter.

Business:
-Chase Ink Bold Charge Card
-Chase Ink Plus Credit Card.
Both of these cards offer 50,000 bonus points for spending $5,000 in 3 months. They also offer 5 points per dollar spent on up to $50,000 annually at office supply stores, and internet/telecom/cable bills. People like to buy gift cards to stores like Amazon or even prepaid cards that they can use at any store from office supply stores, that way they can earn 5 points per dollar on all of their purchases. You also earn 2 points per dollar on gas stations and hotels. A lounge club membership with 2 annual visits is included for free. There is no foreign exchange fee. There is no fee the first year but a $95 fee thereafter.
The Bold card must be paid in full each month and has a somewhat flexible spending limit while the Plus card allows for carrying a balance and has a credit limit.
———————————————————————————-

Tier 2, Cards that do not transfer points into miles, unless you or your spouse also has a card that can transfer points into miles:

Alitalia Cancels Japanese Tickets

You win some and you lose some.

My first time in Hawaii was with airfare and hotel for $87 with tax. I and thousands of others scored Airfare and 5 star accommodations at hotels like the Bellagio with Cirque tickets in Las Vegas all for free thanks to Expedia.  I have lifetime free stays in suites at Fairmont hotels. There have been $250 tickets to anywhere in Europe. And of course there were the $336 El Al tickets that they honored with grace.

All of those “mistakes” were honored, but of course there will always be deals that are not honored.  United didn’t honor the 4 mile island Hong Kong first class award tickets and the DoT agreed with their logic.
And now Alitalia is making up bogus retroactive terms on the Japan coupon that didn’t exist when people bought the tickets and using that to cancel people’s confirmed reservations. The new terms say “Offer is valid for departure from Tokyo and Osaka.”
The old terms did not say that.

I did write in the post that Alitalia may try to cancel tickets and that’s exactly what happened.

What can you do? You can just give it up but it is within your rights to file a complaint with the US DoT (online form) and the EU equivalent (mailed form)
Airlines are strictly regulated and generally can’t just cancel tickets, especially when it’s due to terms they forgot to write on the coupon page.  However it is up to those regulatory organization to enforce their rules and they can only do so if people complain.

Others will say it’s not moral to complain about mistake fares, so I’ll leave that ethical decision in your hands, I’m just telling you your options.

It seems that Facebook complaint groups are already popping up as well such as this one and this one.

To be clear, they are only cancelling the tickets booked with the $315 coupon.  They are still running the 25% off promotion with which you can still get some great deals (JFK-TLV for $763, MIA-TLV for $729, etc).

Yet Another Alitalia Deal: $315 Off Any Flight! Fly From JFK To Israel For $376 Round Trip With Multiple Stopovers…

Update, 1:05am: This deal is now dead.
You can still use the Alitalia USA site and save 25% on flights booked there.

———————————————————————

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!
———————————————————————

You can save 25,000 Japanese Yen, currently $315.18, on any tickets booked on Alitalia Japan.
The site is in Japanese but you can just open the page using Google’s Chrome browser and it will translate the page to English. You can also have the english version of Alitalia.com open in a different browser to help you as the sites are very similar.

Use the following “E-Coupon” code on the Alitalia Japan site after selecting your flights: PROMOJP
Travel must be booked by 10/26 and begin between 11/05/12 and 03/27/13.
Blackout dates are 12/20/12-01/06/13.
Beware that this can be pulled at any time and Alitalia can always attempt to cancel people’s tickets.

This will be a better deal than the 25% off code for any tickets that are under $1,260.
——————————————————————–
If you want just one short stop you can save $315.
All Alitalia flights from the US go through Rome or Milan.

-For example searching for JFK-Tel Aviv on 12/02-12/10 the regular Alitalia site prices the ticket out at $1,018.40. With 25% off it is $763.80.
The Japanese site prices it at ¥80,980 which is currently $1,020.93. With ¥25,000 off it is ¥55,980 which is currently $705.74.

Here is a sample valid itinerary for $705:
New York (JFK) to Rome (FCO) – Sun, Dec 2 Dep: 5:55PM-Arr: 8:10AM
Rome (FCO) to Tel Aviv (TLV) – Mon, Dec 3 Dep: 11:45AM-Arr: 4:05PM

Tel Aviv (TLV) to Rome (FCO) – Mon, Dec 10 Dep: 5:30AM-Arr: 8:20AM
Rome (FCO) to New York (JFK) – Mon, Dec 10 Dep: 10:10AM-Arr: 2:00PM

-Miami-Tel Aviv on 12/03-12/09 for example is ¥52,380 with the ¥25,000 discount or $660 round-trip with tax.
——————————————————————–
Of course with a $315 discount per ticket booked you can book 2 separate tickets to save $630. This will mean 3 total stops.
For example:

-Ticket #1: JFK to Madrid from 11/21-11/29 is ¥24,340 after the ¥25,000 discount or just $306.86 round-trip with tax.

-Ticket #2: Madrid to Tel Aviv from 11/22-11/28 is ¥7,320 after the ¥25,000 discount or just $92.28 round-trip with tax.

Or even cheaper:
-JFK to Madrid from 01/27-02/07 is ¥22,540 after the ¥25,000 discount or just $284.16 round-trip with tax.

-Madrid to Tel Aviv from 01/28-02/06 is ¥7,320 after the ¥25,000 discount or just $92.28 round-trip with tax.

The total from JFK to Tel Aviv would thus be $376 round-trip with tax.  I’m sure there are other places besides Madrid to play this game with and such a flight would mean flying from JFK-Rome-Madrid-Rome-Tel Aviv-Rome-Madrid-Rome-JFK.  Hardly ideal, but doable I suppose.
There are connections available for the flights to Tel Aviv but on the return you would have to spend at least a night (well, technically) 6 hours in Madrid, though of course you could also stay longer.

Here is a sample valid itinerary for $376:
New York (JFK) to Rome (FCO) – Sun, Jan 27, Dep: 5:55PM-Arr: 8:10AM
Rome (FCO) to Madrid (MAD) – Mon, Jan 28, Dep: 8:55AM-Arr: 11:30AM
Madrid (MAD) to Rome (FCO) – Mon, Jan 28, Dep: 5:45PM-Arr: 8:15PM
Rome (FCO) to Tel Aviv (TLV) – Mon, Jan 28 Dep: 10:15PM-Arr: 2:35AM

Tel Aviv (TLV) to Rome (FCO) – Wed, Feb 6 Dep: 2:50PM-Arr: 5:40PM
Rome (FCO) to Madrid (MAD) – Wed, Feb 6 Dep: 9:15PM-Arr: 11:50PM
Madrid (MAD) to Rome (FCO) – Thu, Feb 7 Dep: 6:00AM-Arr: 8:25AM
Rome (FCO) to New York (JFK) – Thu, Feb 7 Dep: 10:10AM-Arr: 2:00PM

On the bright side that $376 round-trip ticket to Israel would earn you 14,705 redeemable and elite qualifying miles on partner Skyteam airlines like Delta or Flying Blue!
——————————————————————–
Other sample flights with the coupon:

-London to Venice from 03/03-03/10 is free after ¥25,000 discount.

-Tel Aviv to Rome from 12/03-12/10 is ¥16,650 after the ¥25,000 discount or just $209.91 round-trip with tax.

-Rome to Venice from 12/05-12/10 is ¥610 after the ¥25,000 discount or just $7.69 round-trip with tax.
——————————————————————–
Use a card like Sapphire Preferred to earn 2.14 miles per dollar and pay no foreign exchange fees.  Or you may want to use Freedom even though it has a 3% foreign exchange fee because this quarter you earn over 5 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar on airfare (up to $1,500).

Want to find cheap flights with flexible dates? You can even search for flights from your closest departure airports to anywhere in Europe! Just type in an airport and use the nearby airports functionality and increase the default mileage range and then select all of them!  You will want to uncheck “allow airport changes” if you don’t want it to search for flights that arrive in one city and leave from another.

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.

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
