how is this different besides for the 30 bucks from the other iberia post?

Dan/Ctownbochur

It’s not, it’s just a good way to save $32-$62 on an already sweet deal!

yankal

dan: regarding the continental cards do you happen to know if
I sign up and receive the points then cancel( so I can churn)
do they charge me the full 85$ or just a months prorated charge (less then ten dollars)

Dan/Ctownbochur

The consensus seems to be YMMV (Your mileage may vary)
You may get a nice rep to do it for you or you may not!
If you try it out, please let us know what happens.

Daniel Hochman

Hi,

I have a ticket already on Continental from 1/15 to 1/29 for around $1000. Is it worth canceling the ticket and getting this one? I think the fee to cancel/ change is $200.

Dan, do you know any way to cancel it without such a large penalty?

BTW, it’s a multi-destination ticket with the following route: EWR-CLE-LAX-EWR-TLV-EWR. I don’t know if it makes a difference though.

Thanks,
Daniel

izzy

Daniel I don’t understand why you are asking Dan if its’ worth cancelling your Continental ticket. you know what you paid and you know what you are getting for it. It’s your pocket not Dan’s.
having said that I would think that $1000.00 for a ticket that included going from ewr to clev and LA and back to Newark besides going to Israel is a very good deal. The continental prices for tickets just to Israel with those dates are more then 1000 dollars. and tickets to LA also cost plenty and Clev as well so what are you thinking?

Daniel Hochman

Sorry, I wasn’t so clear. The $1000 I mentioned was for the EWR-TLV-EWR Leg of the ticket- the whole ticket was around $1400. I was simply asking Dan from his travel experiences if he thinks such a move is wise- while I might save a little money, is it worth cancelling a previosuly made ticket? Also, I thought maybe there’s a way to get around the cancellation fee, or at least maybe minimize it.

Sorry if the question seemed irrelevant to everyone else.

https://www.belisi.com/neckties/91/neckties91.aspx?aun=hydra&acid=36578
for $7.95 u can get 3 ties. sounds like a pretty good deal

Daniel Hochman

Beware of that Tie deal izzy posted- it obligates you in further purchases and membership in some kind of club.

You may be able to cancel so it may be worth it, but just be careful.

Shlomo

Hi,
Can I fly to Israel and make my return flight for 3 months later?

S.B.S.

I mentioned here in the past about the THANK YOU reward points from Citi. They have a very interesting point system that with 20.000 points you can take any ticket on expedia which is 400 dollars or less (2 cents per dollar, not bad for a credit card). some info is available here:

http://www.expedia.com/daily/highlights/rewards/Thank-You-Network.asp?rfrr=-54454

i had 35000 points with them (it was my first credit card from citi) and i got a $390 dollar ticket for 20.000 points

Dan/Ctownbochur

SBS:
You neglect to mention some key factors about the Citi TY point/Expedia deal:
-It is only good for travel to the US48.
-I haven’t looked recently, but last time I checked there were many restrictions including 21 day advance purchase and Saturday night stay requirements.
-If it is over $400 you do not receive anywhere close to a 2% value.

Redeeming actual mileage for a US48 ticket is generally a very poor value, unless it is a last-minute ticket (which usually cost far more than $400)

All in all, I have found most real airline miles and Starpoints to be significantly more valuable and useable, but to each his own!

Dan/Ctownbochur

Case in point:
I randomly selected dates for a domestic trip that I might consider using miles for.
I tried to get from cleveland to los angeles for 11/29-12/04 with no more than 1 stop.


Expedia.com gives me a quote of:
Lowest stop flight: $538
Lowest stop flight on a decent airline: $734
Lowest non-stop flight: $832

Citi TY points gives me a quote of:
Lowest stop flight: 55,300
Lowest stop flight on a decent airline: 78,100
Lowest non-stop flight: 85,800


Continental wants just 25,000 miles for the non-stop.
AA also wants just 25,000 miles, which is just 20,000 Starpoints.


I’m not sure why Citi TY isn’t giving a 2 penny value for the first $400. I’m assuming that it’s because you need either a 14 or 21 day advance purchase to get the 2 penny value, which makes the whole program pretty worthless for me.

jack

I was looking at the Has Advantage visa platinum card – lets you fly on el al for 56,000 points round trip economy.
$1-1point
for those of us who don’t have time for stopovers and can’t book months in advance was wondering if it is a good deal. Any info would be helpful.

Dan, thanks for all the great tips.

Dan/Ctownbochur

Sounds OK, but it’s hard to tell without knowing availability and restrictions. If it’s good for the holidays that’s great, if it’s not then it’s probably worthless.


Generally speaking, I always try to aim for at least 3 cents value per airline mile or at least 5 cents value per starpoint.


In my above example, I would use 25,000 Continental miles to avoid paying $830 for the non-stop flight as that would net a value of over 3 cents per mile.

S.B.S.

It works as follows (I was sitting with a ThankYou guy for 45 min. getting this all to work), I did it today for a $390 dollar ticket from DTW-NYC for a holiday weekend.

1. You open a EXPEDIA account.
2. You refuse to link it with your existing THANKYOU account, and they give you a new THANKYOU account number.
3. You call THANKYOU and ask them to merge both accounts, and make the new account number the primary one.
4. Go to Expedia and search for a ticket that’s under $400 (before taxes, because you pay the taxes plus $5 booking fee)
5. Call ThankYou and ask them to search for those dates, and tell them which flights you want.
6. They will then (ONLY IF YOU HAVE AN EXPEDIA ACCOUNT WHICH IS LINKED TO YOUR ACCOUNT AS MENTIONED EARLIER) take 20000 points and charge you some taxes and a booking fee of $5 and give you a confirmation number for the airline.
7. Go to the airline website and print your boarding pass.
8. Enjoy!

A INTERESTING POINT TO MAKE IS: THE AIRLINE RECIEVES THE TICKET FROM EXPEDIA AS A FULLY PAID TICKET (THE RECEIPT SHOWS THE FULL PRICE) AND YOU EARN MILES ON IT.

If you go thru the website you get 1 cent per mile. but if you call them after doing these steps then you will be successful.

the link i mentioned earlier has some more info.

Dan/Ctownbochur

Well, that does make it slightly more intriguing…

I still have a couple questions though:
-How much tax did you have to pay? On a regular mileage ticket you only pay the $5 security fee.

-What are the advance purchase and saturday night stay requirements?

S.B.S.

I did not say that the Starwood Card isn’t better…

I only mentioned it for the sake of those who have those points (like me, who got that card as the first card from citi with 10.000 points bonus) and want to use it for something productive. those points have been sitting in my account for ages waiting for a good opportunity.

BTW, on the phone they say that it works in the US48, alaska and canada… didn’t verify that claim as i dont think there is any ticket going to alaska at 400 or less

Dan/Ctownbochur

OK then, I thought you were recommending TY points over Starpoints.


If you already have TY points, this definitely gives them more value than they used to have—and it also definitely separates Citi TY points from the pack of other mileage imitators like Capital One (which never lets you get a value of over 1%).


It just doesn’t put it into the same “unlimited value potential realm” that real miles and Starpoints carry.

S.B.S.

i paid the taxes and surcharges on the ticket (around 40 bucks) and the booking fees.

they didnt tell me anything about advance purchase or saturday night stay, they said that if expedia has the ticket – i can use it.

Anonymous

when will we be landing in tel aviv? and when is the return flight?

Dan/Ctownbochur

Please contact the advertiser for all flight related questions.

S.B.S.

To Jack,

That option may sound good, BUT: You don’t get a sign-up bonus, so you actually have to spend 56000 dollars to fly to israel, you might as well apply for a Starwood card, get the 10000 bonus miles, spend 30000 to get 30000 points and transfer those 40000 starwood points for 90000 lanpass kilometres which (together with the sign-up bonus of lanpass of 5000 kms) would give you a free ticket to israel with OnePass airline members. SPEND HALF AND GET THE SAME…

ALSO, this card seems to be a sleazy scam like the Capital One card, because they also give you the option of flying in the USA for 25000 points but the fine print says:

[b]For Standard Travel, the only requirement is a 21-day advance purchase with a Saturday night stay…

There are maximum dollar value levels for each redeemed ticket.[/b]

BASICALLY, I DON’T THINK IT IS SOMETHING WORTH.

jack

Thanks! I have a starwood (per your recommendation) with 100,000 points but just paid for a ticket with el al as I don’t have the time for a stopover.

aaron

are the credit cards on the homepage like sky miles and hilton worth to sign up 4 yo get miles and then you combine all your point toghether from those and starwood regular and bussiness and lan points and you have right there a flight to israel

aaron

when ever you say a free flight it means only one way cause on continental its 70,000 to israel each way

Dan/Ctownbochur

it’s 35,000 on continental each each way with restricted tickets and 70,000 each way on unrestricted.

chaim lipskar

there isnt a unresricted ticket available till next year.

Dan/Ctownbochur

What are you talking about?
I see plenty of 35K flights for December.

yankal

does anyone else have a problem using google checkout?
by me what happens is if I sign up with a new account with a new email address the purchase goes through with savings.
However later on I get an email saying it’s been canceled due
to me having made multiple accounts. This happens even with a brand new cc number!! I guess the only way the can know is by the mailing address, but what can I do about that?

Dan/Ctownbochur

How many Google checkout accounts have you opened?

aaron

dan can you answer my first question about signing up for the other credit cards to get points or is it better to sign up a few times to starwood and how to you look 4 unrestricted tickets thanks

yankal

I opened about 4 before it stopped working

RabbiWass

Yankal

The same thing happened to me last year after signing up a few times. It seems that their system has holes in it and some do not get rejected but those that do get rejected it is complete

My traveling dates are Thursday night after Yom Kippur 10/9/08 comming back on Sunday 10/26/07. Two years ago I got a deal with Air Canada for the same times for $900 per ticket. I know if I booked it now it will be at least $1400, more than I am willing to pay. If I left before Yom Kippur with a stop over I can get it in the $1100 range from Iberia. I am looking to go direct for give and take $1000, Will it get better if I wait?

Hey Dan, i think the time has come that pple are asking alot, such as recommendation, and that kinda stuff, so i think you can make a premium member site but how do you knwo you will cover the cost for a programmer to do the site? Well simple make an ad, that yoru offering such stuff as in advice and say what your plans are like, if 50 pple sign up the programmer will make forms to fill out for cc recommendations and for what to do with miles, if 100 pple sign up the programmer will then make more forms and you can charge a price per person that will fully cover the cost of the programmer and some cash in the pocket, in this you will be happy im sure and the pple will also, now how do you knwo you wont loose any thing cause if you dont have to many pple sign up you dont make it, now pple have all the ccs thy need so what can be in it for every one well some thing to get a text when a gr8 deal if posted and such stuff so if you want i can give you my email and i can help you out with this very much

It would not be fair to turn Dan’s site into a chat room so I won’t respond here but feel free to contact me (I’m easy to find) so we can discuss it.

RDW

RabbiWass

By the way Dan – as the ads grow (and why shouldn’t they?!) they may become a bit cumbersome and present a situation of diminishing returns. I would also seriously consider signing up for a premium membership should you consider experimenting with such a thing. Would we get a fancy card that says “Charter Member” ? 🙂

anon

i actually like this ad a lot, it gives a place to ask questions without them getting lost as the post gets pushed down

S.B.S.

Yes. I agree with Anon 11:58am

Its great to have a post stuck on top, a so-called “discussion spot”.

Maybe it would be a good idea to have a post stickied with the date of apr. 2020, and it should be for discussions.

All other topics should discuss only whats presented

scrable

Dan, a gr8 idea, you have once made a discussion board, but pple dident want to go to another site for that, so how about make a post for it, like other say, and have a thing on htie side bar of the latest things on the board so pple dont have to go there to see it thy can just see on the main dansdeals page. You will need a programmer, but i do think that you can get a flat rate, for it, and raise money for it im sure pple will give, and then you can have a programmer do that for you. What do you think? Dan, im ready to help you out, im not a programmer but i can help get one for you, and take care of it all.

WordPress doesn’t publish a post with a future date.
It simply saves it until that time and publishes it at that point.

I’ll have to see if I can dig up a hack or plugin to allow for a true sticky post.

I’m not opposed to the idea of having a discussion thread stickied to the top of this site.

help! thanx.

i don’t think Dan called for such a thing.
I wish you all the best, and try to use another computer and see what happens, Cause i don’t thin thy will proceed it twice.

izzie

Has anyone received their nano from Key Bank yet?

Dan/Ctownbochur

Big Fan:
There’s a common misconception that AMEX’s charge cards give an unlimited credit line.
They don’t.
The offer unlimited credit within your normal range of activity.
If you spent very little for a few months and then make some very large purchases it is likely to get rejected.

Additionally, AMEX points are not as valuable as Starwood points.

If you need more credit than 1 Starwood card gives you, just open up more AMEX credit card; the credit line can easily be reallocated between cards online.

Starwood points can be transfered to dozens of airlines at 20K:25K

hey dan
mendel is kinda right…. the ad is getting really annoying.. please take it down

DJH345

Uri- Grow Up!

Hi Dan,

I got the Continental World MasterCard and my 20,000 miles posted 🙂 . My first statement is due in a a week or so. What’s the best move at this point?

Should I call to cancel and see if I can get the annual fee waived or prorated?

Can they take the miles from my Onepass account if I do so?

I should have gotten the Business Card- the annual fee is free with it. If I get it after the fact, can I combine the credit lines of a consumer and a business card?

BN

Dan Thanks for everything.
Im thinking of getting a centro-I read everything u posted about it.Do you still like it?Should I go for it(I have now the KATANA)

scrable

Uri, who the hell are you, to say that, im ready to put down cash to have you blocked from coming to this site if possible. Your annoying.

Dan/Ctownbochur

DJH345:
The business card has the same annual fee as the consumer card, but it does have some different advantages:
http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/2825
You should probably wait until you get the miles before trying to cancel and wiggle out of the annual fee.

BN:
The centro is an amazing phone.

Scrable:
Lol, maybe instead of an ad supported site we could move to “ban” supported site.

Wow i hope i never get close to that bn please if you you get the centro i have some but please contact me b4 i have a discount code for you. email ctownjr@gmail.com

DJH345

Thanks Dan- My 20,000 miles already posted. If I sign up for the Business Card or another Consumer card, can I combine the credit lines and then avoid the annual fee on the second card?
$85 for 40,000 miles is amazing so I wouldn’t mind paying the first.

Thanks for all the hard work you do- especially answering everyone’s individual questions!

Dan, what do you think of the HAS Advantage card?
You know, the one that supports Israeli charities with some of the proceeds of the card?

They claim to have the best points program for redeeming tickets to Israel. I’ve had two people already try to sign me up.
I’m not into having lots of cards, and I’m working on rewards using a starwood card currently. What’s your opinion of the HAS card? Too gimmicky? worth a shot? Scam?

Other Guy

Dan!
Thanks for the post.
The only problem is that you need to scroll through 100 posts to find out whats new! Is there a way to leave new posts at the top like a forum? Or how about erase (or send to an “old posts” section)old posts past a certain amount of time…

Dan/Ctownbochur

Check Continental’s reward availability. You may get better results by calling them up. They will probably be the best transfer option.

halfshared:
I hated the magellen gps units that I previously tried out. Additionally this one is refurbished which is never a good thing. (Especially because that fact invalidates the 90 day AMEX return privilege!)

which visa would be the est one?
is there an spg visa??

Moishe

danFan,
From what I have gathered reading Dan’s CC Posts – http://ctownbochur.blogspot.com/2006/11/credit-card-profile-3-american.html – and from personal experiance, the AAdvantage World Platinum MasterCard would be the next best Credit Card to use after the Starwood Amex. I think what Dan may have meant was why do you need a Visa especially and not a Master Card…

sen

to l
just gaving the card alone is good enough

scrable

OK, here it is, lets see who will use it, http://ctownforums.proboards89.com/
And DJH345, what’s wrong with the FaceBook Discussion Board
The problom with the forum from last year Dan, is that pple dont want to go to another site, but FaceBook, who ever has facebook will go online and check it out, more often.

DJH345

You can integrate this forum with the homepage here. Ie- list top 10 newest/updated threads and obviously create links between the two very often. If Dan would only answer questions there, it would force everyone away from the comments and we could have a real dynamic forum which would be awesome.

DJH345

Also, if you host the forum on your own, you can get rid of the ad that “proboards89” puts up (and put your own up 🙂 ).

scrable

hi I’m updating dansdeals from my centro on the road. so let’s get to work dan you can host it all on myaccount, I have hosting for up to 10 domane names, dan I’ll put you in ill pay all the fees. please take my offer. Thnks

yaacov

what’s better the amex starwood business or the consumer??

scrable

Yaccov. the business, I can think is better, but cost more.Dan, email me at ctownjr@gmail.com. you know who I am.

Mendel

Dan, Thanks for having more Israel info on your agenda. Going to Israel in about 4 weeks so if you can do it before then… 🙂
Meanwhile, in case I need to get another credit card, Which CC is best to use in Israel and would have the best exchange rate and least transaction/exchange fees?

G

If I already have a chase continental regular and business could I sign up for both again and then join both to the other card and still keep the miles or it would be considered like I canceled them and the mileage would vary by the CS rep?

yebo/stern

unless you have a card that gives you back more then 2% cash back, the best card for overseas is capital one as there is no foreign transaction fee.

Dan/Ctownbochur

L:
Sen answered you correctly, just bear in mind that this feature is being phased out by the major credit agencies.

danFan:
The Chase Freedom Visa looks interesting, $50 for opening and then 3% cash back at the places you use it most.

For Mastercard, that would be the AA card.

Just don’t use a bank card!

DJH345 :
Going back to the last forum experiment, the forum was called ctownforums.com (the name has since expired)
On each new post I made a direct link to the thread on it.
The place was very quiet.
The only factor that has changed is that traffic is way up, but I still am not convinced that a forum is the way to go.

What I learned from the last experiment is that people dont want to have to go to 2 different sites when they are used to getting all of the information from 1.

yaacov :
Starwood business is better because of AMEX Open Savings. They are both free for the first year and $45 thereafter.
They can both be churned.

Mendel :
Capital One apparently doesn’t charge foreign transaction fees.

Personally I get well more than 2% from Starpoints, so I’m willing to eat the 2% charge.

I don’t think that it would be worth applying for a capital one card just to save the 2% unless your going to be in Israel for a very long time.

G:
They can both be combined and you will keep the miles.

DJH345

I hear that Dan, but maybe you should give it one more go. One way to force people out of their habits would be to close comments on the blog portion. Also, cross promotion between the two (ie- top 10 hottest threads listed on the blog, and 10 newest blog posts listed on the forums) could help.

But ultimately it comes down to you and what you think is best for your site. And since you know your clientèle the best, I trust your decision.

does it pay to open up a continental business card now?
what are my options

any deals to fly to sa

I have a capital one card which i never use how does it affect my credit score should i cancel it or it wont affect anything and does the fact that it was my 1st cc that i got make a difference thanx alot

As long as there are no fees keep the card. That card is your credit history.

Eli

Dan or Other Guy i have 3 other cards that i use frequently its just that the capital 1 is my 1st and i have the longest standing history on it but it hasnt been used in about 2 years and it has my lowest limit the question is if canceling it would show my credit history only from the card that i got later etc. Thanx 4 replying

yebo/stern

eli. Leave the card open its amazing for your history even if you dont use it.

Chaim

Whats the minimum amount of Starpoints you can transfer to an airline?

Eli:
If theres no high fees keep it open you have nothing to lose and lots to gain.
When you close your first CC you are erasing part of your credit history.

Dan I just got a financial review from AMex. You write to cance the cards right away but what do I do about the expenses that are on the card already

aaron

i signed up 4 the continental credit card for the 20000 points and chase called me to see if i got my card and they offered me to sign up for the business credit card and they will give me another 15000 points and they waived the 65 dollars first year fee so maybe try it out

DJH345

I just called Chase to try and get the Annual Fee waived for the World Mastercard (20,000 miles) and it worked 🙂 !!

Thanks Dan!

If I order another card and transfer the credit to this account which just got the fee waived, will it avoid the fee for the second card?

Ive heard you say that there is a starwood amex that is supposed to be very easy to get, even with a low credit score (im 18). what would i have to do? which card is it? I had citi watching my credit report, and it says that i have an account that opened; just in the past month. Im guessing that this is the credit card i opened a month ago? Does that mean that I could not open a new card?

Im sorry for all the questions.

A friend of mine on shlichus in Canada got in real trouble with his cell phone. He doesn’t speak a good English didn’t understand how to deal with things and was paying over $600 a month for his cell phone. He owed 3 months, they wanted to close account. I let him charge it to my amex and now I disputed the charge which was almost $2,ooo US. I now know he could get a verizon account for $100 which will work in CANADA too. Aside for Rogers closing down his cell plan,Would he get in trouble if I said that this was an unauthorized charge?

Looking for a lap top in the $500 can anyone help? Do you think after christmas I will get a better deal

Dan/Ctownbochur

Jay:
20,000 Continental miles are a nice bonus, the trick is to get them to waive/prorate the fee once you get the miles!

Eli:
As “Other Guy” said, it’s best to keep open any really old cards that have no annual fees.

ANONYMOUS:
I had a post on ipod deals here:
http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/2929

Buy any up to $300 on a Starwood AMEX and you’ll have a 90 day return policy.

yebo/stern:
AFAIK, the Chase freedom card is still churnable.

Chaim:
It depends on your Starwood elite status,
Platinum= No minimum
Gold= 1,500 Starpoints
Preferred= 2,500 Starpoints.

At any rate you’ll do much better by transferring in increments of 20,000 Starpoints.

Moish g.:
Expect a new AMEX MR transfer post soon…

Moishe:
It’s not worth getting the AA card for purchases because the Starwood AMEX gives you more AA miles per dollar spent than the AA card does.

Anonymous :
You can still pay off expenses after a card is closed…

DJH345 :
20,000 free Continental miles-nicely done!
Try for the 2nd card and keep us updated!

stern :
See if you can stall them for time…
They may be willing to negotiate by faxing them a bank account statement, etc.
Luckily a F/R is only temporary, within a few months you can
open the cards again.

justshmooze.com :
As long as you have a decent credit score and a decent income (according to what you fill in the application) you should be able to get a Starwood card.

BN:
You don’t need a heads-up. By law you can get the annual fee waived in the month after it appears on the statement by closing down the account!

need a new notebook asap:
I’ll keep my eyes open.

Zc :
Chargebacks to cell phone companies don’t work, they just stick the charge back on the account and send it to collections.

mendy:
There is no cheap place, Amazon is good because of free shpping/no tax and a generous price-adjustment and return policy.

I purchased a speaker system from buy.com today. It had $80 in rebates. However now when i go to the same link it doesn’t have the rebate form next to the item anymore. Does that mean that they will give me problems with the rebate? Also, is Pixxo a company which normally sends you the rebate or are they going to scam me?
This is the link for the speaker system:

I recommend a 3 month wait after a F/R. After that time go ahead and open up a new Jetblue card to get your free ticket.

Hey Dan a happy Chanukah from a loyal fan. Quick question, can you make a post about the Amex financial review?
I think this would benefit a lot of people.
What I mean is like why would they target you? What do you have to do in regards to how many cards amount of balances on them and credit limits.
By the way the online reallocation of credit by amex is awesome!
Ok now that I have written all that I thought of another question.
My oldest credit card is from chase with a decent credit limit; the only problem is their interest rates are horrible and I have no rewards with this card. Could I open a new chase cc that would be good for me, like rewards and no annual fee, and then transfer my balance to the new one but retain length for credit history?
Thanks a lot for everything!!

You definitely need a forum.

Dan i did as you said. when I called the rep at amex review department she said she was closing all my account. I asked her to hold on Im going to call her right back and then quicly called cs and closed all of my 13 accounts. I even managed to save some uncleared points b4 that. My question is how long to wait b4 reapplying and can I just reopen the accounts that were closed??

Shlomo, it’s not worth it, with Windows Vista you want to get at least 2gb ram, but if you want to buy the extra ram your self and add it on, it’s worth it.
If you do want good Graphics, You might want to get a Laptop with a dedicated Graphics card, but if your just using it for internet, and basics you dont need it unless yo like to watch alot of movies it might be better to get the dedicated on, which is not worth it to add later on.
If you do want, you can buy a HP, with this coupon NB3075, that will get you 30% off from $999 or more so then you can get a gr8 laptop for just $700, with a dedicated graphics card, a bigger hard drive, and gr8 ram, and much more.
If you will like to go with the HP one, i can help you configure a good laptop or desktop.

I would like to disagree with some of the commentors here. this forum is fine as you just need to scroll down to the bottom of the page to be up to date with new questions and answers. SCHNEUR: the reason I was targted with a financial review is beacuse about 5 weeks ago I made a payment which was revered due to a lack of funding. This is pretty pathetic that my accounts had to be closed due to this as the next day I put the right amount of money

Hi Dan,

I was in Macy’s yesterday and bought a bunch of clothes. I was expecting to open up a Macy’s account, and get discounts (15% for opening a new account plus 20% as I borrowed a coupon), but I was told that they would send me a letter telling me if I am approved. After that, I would have to go to Macy’s and they would credit my account the 20% and 10%.

I called today and they didn’t approve me. I’m wondering if there is a way to be approved, or to put the clothes on someone else’s Macy’s account without having to take all the clothes back, return them and buy them again.

Thanks

Dave

what does ‘churning’ credit cards mean? Also, I applied for AMEX strwoog CC about 2.5 weeks ago and got it yesterday. can I apply again for a new card and get another 10,000 bonus points? will it hurt my credit score? also, can my wife open a CC with the same STARWOOD ACCOUNT and get the 10,000 bonus miles to that STARWOOD account?

Shlomo, next week there will be a good laptop with a 2gb ram, at circuit city its a pretty good one, but if you will get the cheaper one what you showed me then i will show you some thing for less, then that and maybe even better but i dont think you want to take that chance with Vista.

Schneur,

You absolutely can open another chase CC and then transfer the credit line from your old card to the new one and keep you old card running with all the credit history you have achieved. I just did it myself…

Dan has already written a post on the topic of Financial Review:

http://www.dansdeals.com/index.php?s=financial+review

Dan,

The only part I have a question about is if I did not manage to shut down my account before they did then how long will I have to wait to reapply? Your suggestion to wait 3 months seemed to be only if you were able to shut down the account before they did. Personally it has been more then 3 months for me and I just reapplied and was declined! Any ideas other then just to wait longer? Also, if I am not using the Starwood Amex then what is the next best card to use for Miles (other then the AAdvantage)?

Moishe

Dan,

I just wanted to mention that I have received all 3 Credit Reports since my Starwood card was canceled and all that is on the reports is that “the account was closed by credit granter” and the like… There is a section on reports that is personalized that explains the different factors that have a positive or negative effect on the score and the fact that I had a card “closed by credit granter” has never shown up there as a negative!

Thank You for making me a better me.

What does it mean when my cc says I’m charged 19.24% for purchased apr & 23.24% for cash apr?
And is that generally conciderd a high interest rate? ie. are there alot of cc’s that are cheaper?
Thanx

Scarble

Well there are many cc that are cheaper, you can get alot for about 9.99% APR, and i think the cash APR is if you take out cash from it like at a ATM if you can and that type of stuff.
Please correct me if im wrong.

i used to accumulate delta miles from an amex skymiles card. even though i dont have the credit card anymore, i still have the 200,000 skymiles.

My question is, being that i hate delta skymiles (i can never find flights with the skysaver) is there any way i can transfer these miles to some other worthwhile program?

thanx

Please Help:

Are you interested in selling those miles? If you are, email me at YouDontNeed2KnowMyEmailAddress at gmail dot com.

I meant how long did you wait before reapplying? if you do it too quickly you will be declined.
