The Best 5 Years Of My Life

5 years ago yesterday, at the ripe old age of 23, I married a kind, smart, funny, and beautiful 21 year old girl.  We dated for 3 weeks and were married 3 months later. Marrying Mimi was the single best decision of my life.  Simply the best wife and best mother anyone could ever ask for.

Since then we’ve explored the world together. From Argentina to Tasmania.  From Banff to Phuket. From Paris to the Whitsunday Islands. From Aruba to Zurich.  From Sydney to Venice.  From the spiritual hills of Jerusalem to the awe inspiring Mauna Kea and Na Pali cliffs.

Sure I had done my share of traveling beforehand. I flew from Sao Paulo to Tokyo and back with free stopovers in Dallas, JFK, Los Angeles, and Miami thanks to American’s free systemwide ticket promotion for just flying twice to Florida or California. I made my first million miles as an 18 year old and haven’t looked back.

But there’s something completely different about discovering the world together with your soul mate. Especially one willing to put up with my craziness. Taking a month-long honeymoon to explore each of the Hawaiian islands that I so love. Flying while pregnant around the world, staying in a $3,000 suite one night and a hostel in middle of nowhere the next. Packing and flying to Buenos Aires within an hour of finding a glitch that would take us there in first class for free…and then coming right back home after one night.  And most of all, flying with little Rafi on 49 flights!  It’s each of these trips that stand out so vividly in my mind and are the stuff dreams are made of.  What a lucky fluke that I live in a time where I was able to do it all while in first class without having to shell out more than a few kopeks.  Though it seems that aspirational awards may be on the way out.

But more importantly than the fun and games, for giving me 2 amazingly adorable kids. And doing a heck of a job raising them so far.

Here’s to the next 50!

Yesterday Young Israel of Greater Cleveland held a cholent contest.  I was invited to come taste and preview the cholents before the masses.

A couple months ago I was invited to be a judge at the 2nd annual Kansas City Kosher BBQ Competition & Festival. Alongside an Iron Chef judge and Kansas City BBQ Society certified judges I might lack the credentials but I’m no less of a hopeless foodie.

Get A 20% Bonus When You Transfer American Express Membership Rewards Points Into El Al Matmid Points

Related: Get A 20% Bonus When You Transfer American Express Membership Rewards Points Into British Airways Avios
———————————————-
Get A 20% Bonus When You Transfer American Express Membership Rewards Points Into El Al Matmid Points
Offer expires 11/30.

Normally to fly round-trip between NYC or Toronto and Tel Aviv you need to transfer 70K Membership Rewards for coach, 150K for business, and 250K for first class.  That gives you the 1,400 Matmid points needed for coach, 3,000 Matmid points needed for business, and 5,000 Matmid points needed for first.

With this promotion you’ll need to transfer just 59K Membership Rewards for coach, 125K for business, or 209K for first.

You can make a Matmid account for free via the 20% bonus offer link above.  Once you have a Matmid account you can search award availability on ElAl.com

Some caveats:
-El Al charges $349 in taxes and fuel surcharges for a round-trip award.
-El Al business is the only business class between the US and Israel that is not fully lie-flat. First class is fully lie-flat.
-El Al does not have any partner redemptions, so you’re really locked into their availability if you transfer. Transfer only if you are booking a ticket.
-American does not charge fuel surcharges to book travel on El Al with American AAdvantage miles. You can transfer 20K Starpoints into 25K American miles which you can earn on the fantastic Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express.
-You can book El Al coach for 80K American AAdvantage miles off-peak via Europe (free stopover if you want) or 90K AA miles nonstop.
-You can book El Al business for 135K American AAdvantage miles nonstop.
-You can only book El Al first class with El Al points.
-With both programs you can book one-way award for half the miles.
-El Al has no close-in expedite fees. American has a $75 close-in expedite fee and a $25 phone booking fee.
-Free one-way domestic tickets with every one-way international ticket: With AA miles if you want to fly on El Al from Tel Aviv to NYC for 45K American miles you can just book Tel Aviv to JFK, stopover in NYC for as long as you want, and then book NYC-Hawaii (or any other domestic destination) for the same 45K miles. Then you can spend as little as 15K miles to get back from Hawaii to NYC or you can go back to NYC for free by tagging it onto a future international trip with a stopover in NYC.  Plus with AA miles you can change the dates of travel at any time for free!

My Thoughts On The United Devaluation

uad

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I rushed to break the news and compile a chart of the pain in the wee-hours this morning about the United devaluation.  Here are some more thoughts that I have:

1. A devaluation was expected. The shocking part is the split partner chart and the massive increase in partner awards rates, especially in First Class.

It’s been a long time since a serious inflation for the Continental/United programs.
Inflation happens for a couple reasons:
-First of all as the value of a dollar goes down the cost to buy airplane tickets goes up. Just as the value of a dollar sitting in a bank account goes down on a daily basis, so must the miles sitting in your account. Except that it would be ludicrous to have it change daily so we’re hit with these devaluations every few years.
-Second of all we’ve seen credit card bonuses increase and with more miles chasing fewer seats something has to give.

But let’s take the Tel Aviv route for example.
In September 2008 Continental raised the cost of an award ticket to Israel from 70K coach/100K business to 90K coach/120K business. In October 2009 Continental joined the Star Alliance and actually lowered rates to 75K coach/115K business.
When Continental/United synchronized their charts the flight went up to 80K coach/120K business where it’s been for a while.
With these changes the cost to fly in coach goes up to 85K, still lower than it was 5 years ago.

For business it goes up to 140K round-trip on United and 160K on partners. This hurts. The 20K increase is something I can live with, but the 40K partner increase seems too high.  It stinks to have to deal with a separate United chart and partner chart.  If you want to fly United First and tag on a short flight on a partner it can make more sense to book a separate ticket rather than subject your whole ticket to partner rates.
For first class you’ll now need an eye-popping 280K round-trip on partners. This is just an insane 86.7% increase. The first class partner award increases are really hard to fathom.

Other uncool changes that were buried in the footnotes:
-You’ll need an extra 10K miles to fly to Alaska round-trip, which is being broken out of the US49 category for the first time.
-A Round-The-World award which lets you fly to multiple cities for as long as you want goes way up as well. And that’s on top of a huge increase from the old Continental chart in 2011.

2. It’s not a matter of if American and USAirways will devalue, it’s a matter of when.
Their charts look silly compared to United’s new chart. If you have miles with those programs the time to start planning for a nice trip is now.
Don’t shift from accumulating United miles to American/USAirways miles just because their charts look way better right now as you will be disappointed.  Transfer Starpoints to those programs on an as-needed basis.
At least you know that the United chart will probably be free from devaluations for the next few years. That can’t be said for American, Delta, and USAirways.

3. Cash-back cards need to be looked at more seriously.
Sure your dollars are also devalued, albeit more stealthily. But you can invest those dollars to hedge against inflation. You can’t do the same with your miles.
The best cash back card out there is the Barclaycard Arrival World Mastercard which earns 2.22% cash back on everything with no foreign exchange fees. It also has a sweet 40,000 point signup bonus.
You get 2 points per dollar everywhere and a 10% point rebate every time you redeem your points. People have been changing those points into cold hard cash by booking a refundable travel reservation. At that point they redeem their points to get cash for them for it before refunding the travel reservation. 2.22% cash back is pretty much as good as it gets for cash.

If you redeem for an international coach ticket you’ll usually do better with this card than with a mileage card. Last-minute coach tickets, short-haul coach tickets, one-way coach tickets, business class tickets, and first class tickets are still much better with real airline miles than with cash. But can you really justify burning 280K miles to fly First Class to Israel on a partner airline? Business class may be the sweet spot of the future.

4. Transferable currencies are a hedge against devaluations.
If you’re only earning miles on a United card you’ve been hosed today. Those miles are stuck there and come February they’re worth less.
But if you have a Chase Ultimate Rewards cards at least you have other excellent options. I’ll go over them in the coming days.

Starwood Starpoints are really shining brightly today. They have dozens of transfer partners so even when one devalues there are tons of other options.  And they give a 25% bonus for each 20K transferred. Plus unlike with other transferable currencies, your points stay alive even if you close your Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express.

Membership Rewards also allows you to transfer to several programs, though they’re not partners with “exciting” partners like Alaska, American, or USAirways like Starwood is. And they don’t offer good hotel options like both Chase and Starwood have. Still it’s always nice to have transferable points.

It definitely pays to diversify.

5. We don’t have to take this sitting down!
-Retweet my Tweet here and send your own tweets to @United with the hashtag: #UnitedUnfriendly
The more you post the quicker mainstream media will pick up on this story. Let’s get it trending!

-Express your displeasure to Chase (Twitter: @Chase, @Chase Support) about these changes. Chase buys billions of dollars of United miles and isn’t likely to be happy that they’ve been devalued. They’re especially not going to be happy to lose customers to cards like the Starwood AMEX. If anyone has the power to put pressure on United it’s Chase.

-Contact United CEO Jeff Smisek and let him know how these changes will affect your travel patterns and credit card spending. He can be reached at jeff.smisek@united.com

-If you feel that an 87% increase is just flat-out unfair you can also file a complaint with the US DOT.  Sure United is free to do what they want, but this devaluation simply doesn’t happen if Continental and United were still competing.  Delta and Northwest miles have gone from being worthwhile to being worthless thanks to their merger. Let the DOT know that you feel an 87% increase in the cost of some awards is unfair to consumers and that you want to see the DOT keep fighting the American-USAirways merger in court.  If that merger goes through you can be sure we’ll be seeing more painful changes like this one.

What are your thoughts? How will these changes affect what cards you spend on or where you accumulate miles? Sound off in the comments!

United Devalues Their Miles

So much for United’s massive “Flyer Friendly” ad campaign. This is definitely a case of #UnitedUnfriendly
Tweet that out and let your voices be heard.

United has just announced that they will be raising the rates of most awards effective 02/01/14.  Their industry leading award chart was simply too good to be true.  The only good news to be found here is that it will still remain completely free of fuel surcharges and booking fees, something no other network carrier in the world can say.

Current Award Chart PDF

New Award Chart PDF

You can book at the current rates until 01/31/14 for travel as far out as January 2015. But once February comes around you’ll have to book using the new award chart.

With the current award chart the rates are the same no matter what airline you’re flying on.
With the new award chart you will pay a significant premium to fly on a partner airline.  In some cases the rate to fly on a partner airline will be nearly double what the current rate is.

These changes will raise the value on other Star Alliance currencies like Aeroplan, ANA, Avianca, Singapore, USAirways, etc.

The USAirways and American award charts are now extreme bargains and are very likely to be devalued as soon as their merger is either approved or rejected.

Below is a chart I put together comparing the new rates.
The first rate is the current rate.
In the parenthesis is the additional miles you’ll need over the current rate and the new rate when flying on United.
In the brackets is the additional miles you’ll need over the current rate and the new rate when flying on a Star Alliance or other partner airline
The rates listed are for one-way travel at the saver level.

For example:
-A one-way ticket between the US and Israel now costs 40K in coach, 60K in business, and 75K in first on any airline.
-Starting in February a one-way ticket on United from the US to Israel will cost 42.5K in coach, 70K in business, and 90K in first. Mind you United doesn’t even fly First Class to Israel so I have no idea how you would ever wind up paying 90K.
-Starting in February a one-way ticket on a partner airline from the US to Israel will cost 42.5K in coach, 80K in business, and a whopping 140K in first. That’s an 86.7% increase if you want to fly Lufthansa First Class to Israel over the current rates. Like I said, #UnitedUnfriendly

New IHG PointBreaks List Is Out: Hotel Rooms For $35/Night

IHG PointBreaks Linky

The current list is valid for stays through 01/31. Hotels can sell out of discounted rooms quickly.

You can stay in any PointBreaks hotel for 5,000 Priority Club/IHG points. If you already have 5,000 Priority Club/IHG points in your account then you can buy increments of 10,000 points for $70 as described below.

If you don’t have points yet Priority Club sells 5,000 points for $67.50 or you can instantly transfer 5,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Priority Club.

After you have 5,000 points in your account there is a “trick” to buy additional points for 0.7 cents each.  You can book any cancellable 15,000 point hotel stay using cash and points for $70+5,000 points.

All you need to do is search for reward points stays in any metro area and you should find a hotel for 5,000 points+$70 like the one below. The room is normally 15,000 points but with IHG points and cash option you can buy 10,000 points for $70 when making a reservation.  Just select the 5,000 points+$70 option to complete this purchase.

The $70 that you pay is nonrefundable so when you cancel the hotel you will actually get back 15,000 points in your account.  Effectively you are buying 10,000 Priority Club points with this method for $70 or 0.7 cents per points.

Frivolous Electronics Rule Finally Going Away

So the shocking aviation news today is that your iPad doesn’t actually interfere with pilot communications or pose a safety issue 🙄
Take that, guy across the aisle who got furious at me for texting while sitting on the LGA tarmac for an hour.

By the end of the year you won’t have to turn off your electronics when you fly.

No more shutting down when the door is closed and when the flight is landing.  You can let your kids keep playing games on your tablet without any issues.
Though you still won’t be allowed to talk on your phone, and that’s probably for the best.

New Flying Blue Promo Awards Now Bookable; 20K Starpoints Or 25K Membership Rewards Points Plus $280 For a Round-Trip Ticket To Israel

Update: DDF member Drago points out some other really good Promo Award deals (from 15K round-trip plus $69) for TLV based folk in this thread.
—————————————————–

Flying Blue Promo Awards (Click here to view worldwide promo awards)

Air France Flying Blue Award Search (Login required to search for award flights)

Flying Blue is the joint program of SkyTeam member Air France and KLM.
They consider Tel Aviv to be part of Europe which can make for some decent deals.

They do charge fuel surcharges on their own flights but not on Delta flights. However availability is much better on their own flights than on Delta flights. They normally charge 50,000 miles round-trip in coach to Israel.
For example a flight on Delta from JFK -Tel Aviv from 11/28-12/11 is 50K miles plus $78.47. The Flying Blue award calendar won’t show that flight so you should search for saver awards on Delta.com (which also has a subpar calendar) and then plugin those dates on the Flying Blue site.
Plus you can book one-way flights for half price with Flying Blue, something Delta doesn’t allow.

Promo awards:
Valid in either direction.
Book by 11/30/13
Travel 11/01/13-03/31/14.
Promo Awards can’t be modified, cancelled or refunded.

Sample dates with fuel surcharges for various routes:
-Atlanta to Tel Aviv, 01/12-01/21 for 37.5K miles plus $298.14 in coach.
-Boston to Tel Aviv, 01/12-01/21 for 37.5K miles plus $301.23 in coach.
-Detroit to Tel Aviv, 12/01-12/09 for 37.5K miles plus $301.23 in coach.
-Houston to Tel Aviv, 01/12 for 12.5K miles plus $110.47 in coach. (Valid return not found online)
-Houston to Tel Aviv, 11/26 for 31,250 miles plus $310.29 in business. (Valid return not found online)
-JFK to Tel Aviv, 12/04-12/11 for 37.5K miles plus $280.62 in coach.
-Los Angeles to Tel Aviv, 01/27-02/04 for 25K miles plus $301.23 in coach.
-Montreal to Tel Aviv, 02/25-03/04 for 37.5K miles plus $257.94 in coach.
-S. Francisco to Tel Aviv, 03/04 for 12.5K miles plus $110.47 in coach. (Valid return not found online)
-Tel Aviv to Chicago, 02/09 for 12.5K miles plus $149.54 in coach. (Valid return not found online)
-Toronto to Tel Aviv, 12/03-12/11 for 25K miles plus $298.68 in coach.
-Toronto to Tel Aviv, 11/24-12/01 for 62.5K miles plus $615.88 in business.
-Vancouver to Tel Aviv, 01/20-01/27 for 62.5K miles plus $608.95 in business.
-Vancouver to Tel Aviv, 01/13-01/20 for 37.5K miles plus $250.53 in coach.
-Washington DC to Tel Aviv, 01/06-01/16 for 25K miles plus $280.62 in coach.

Want to pickup some Flying Blue miles?
AMEX MR points transfer to Flying Blue at a 1:1 ratio and Starpoints transfer at a 20:25 ratio so 20K Starwood becomes enough for a round-trip ticket.

-The Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express awards 25K signup points with no fee for the first year. 20K Starpoints can transfer into 25K Flying Blue with the permanent 25% transfer bonus.  Transfers can take 2-9 days.

-American Express Membership Rewards points can be earned from cards like the American Express® Premier Rewards Gold Card and The Platinum Card® from American Express.
These points can transfer instantly at a 1:1 ratio.

Search Engine Improvements

DansDeals is powered by WordPress and they have finally made the search engine a bit smarter.

Previously if you would search for “getting to Israel” using the search box in the upper-right corner it would pull up posts in chronological order that contained any of those words.

Now it looks for post titles that have those words and gives them more weight than a post than contained the word “getting” in it yesterday.

Try it out for yourself!

Of course you can always use Google search as well.  When using Google just type in your search term and then site:dansdeals.com.  For example you can search:
Hawaii site:dansdeals.com

Or if you just wanted to search the DansDeals Forums you can search:

The Reports Of Amazon Payments’ Death Have Been Greatly Exaggerated…

Amazon Payments has been discussed on DansDeals and on the DansDeals Forums (DDF) for more than 3 years.

It remains a great way to meet bonus spend thresholds as you can send and receive $1,000 per month from your credit card with no fees.  Of late they have been cracking down on people with several accounts which pass money back and forth so it’s a better idea to have a circle of friends do this from different IP addresses to be safe.  And of course you have to select “Goods/Services” and not “Cash Advance” or else you’ll be charged a cash advance fee on your card.

At any rate I’ve read on several blogs and forums that Amazon Payments will start charging fees “effective December 4th.”  This rumor was based on the annual privacy notice that was recently emailed out.  The privacy notice said nothing about new fees, but there were links in the email to pages that mention fees.  In fact those fees have always been there.  They apply to business accounts that sell products with checkout by Amazon and Amazon Payments.  I was highly skeptical of their interpretation of the privacy notice and expressed that in response to rumors on DDF.  Not that Amazon can’t decide at any time to start charging, but there was nothing in the email that indicated a change in fees for personal accounts.

Just to be sure I emailed Amazon for an explanation and to see if there would be new fees coming on 12/04/13 for personal accounts and here is what they said,

I apologize for any concerns our annual privacy notice has caused you. The limits of sending and receiving funds via credit card will be staying at $1000.

I can confirm that no service fees are applied from Amazon Payments for sending and receiving the limit of $1,000 per month. Please keep in mind that your credit card issuer can charge you a fee if “cash advance” is selected as a form of payment processing. This would be completely on the side of the credit card, and they would know more about any service fees they apply.

From Amazon Payments no fees will be applied for sending your monthly limit for the foreseeable future.

The e-mail you received is a simple notice informing you about our privacy practices, as well as how you can report errors or unauthorized transactions related to your Amazon Payments account – we’re required by law to send this annual notice to all of our account holders.

So there you have it, no news is good news in this case.
