DansDeals Seminar: Five Towns

200

Reminder: The Five Towns seminar is tonight!

Don’t have a ticket? You can purchase one at the door starting at 8pm on a first-come, first-served basis if there is space.  No “standby” attendees have been turned away from the previous 7 seminars.

If you are holding a ticket remember to show up before 8pm so that your seat isn’t given away to a standby attendee.

Be sure to bring something to take notes with!
See ya’ tonight!

———————————————————————–

Update: It may have taken a week to give away 120 seats for free for my first seminar in Crown Heights some 18 months ago but all 500 seats for this seminar have now sold out in just 3 hours!
I sure hope everyone read all of the info below so that they’re not too disappointed…

———————————————————————–

Due to the Teaneck seminar selling out so quickly I’m adding another NYC area seminar for the night afterward!

The 8th DansDeals seminar will be on Wednesday night, January 8th at 8pm.
It will be located at the Young Israel of Lawrence-Cedarhurst, 8 Spruce Street, Cedarhurst, NY 11516.

You can purchase tickets via this link.  Sold Out!

The cost of admission is $10. Light refreshments will be served.
The entire ticket price will go directly to charity to benefit The Levi Yitzchak Family Center and Library, the organizers of this event.

In a very short time, the Levi Yitzchak Family Center and Library has become an integral part of our local Jewish Community. The Library is always buzzing with visitors both children and adults. It is great place to find an ever-growing array of Jewish books on a wide range of topics. Furthermore, the programs and school trips facilitate an even greater connection within the Community. The Levi Yitzchak Library has grown to become a go-to place for learning and fun for different ages, all in the merit of a beautiful young boy who loved learning Torah.  Special thanks to Gary Wallin Music and Entertainment for providing equipment for the event and to Gourmet Glatt Emporium for providing light refreshments for the event.

You will have to designate who will be attending as tickets are non-transferable.

-Men and Women ages 15 and older are welcome to attend, no kids please.
-Recording devices and photography of the slides are not allowed so be sure to bring something to take notes with!

Schedule:
7:30pm: Doors open. Failure to show up by 8:00pm may result in your seat being given away to someone else.
8:00pm-9:00pm: Seminar Part 1-Credit Cards and mileage earning on a beginner to intermediate level.
9:00pm-9:15pm: Intermission
9:15pm-10:30pm: Seminar Part 2-More advanced tips and tricks for mileage redemption, paid flights, hotel stays, car rentals, etc.
10:30pm: Trivia and Q&A session.

-If you are a beginner: Hopefully you will learn a lot, but I cover many subjects in a relatively short period of time. Don’t feel bad if you don’t understand many things or if you start to feel lost, feel free to stay afterward and I’ll clarify them.  Or better yet start reading the DansDeals Forums where you can learn more about anything you want to know.  There won’t be time to explain most subjects at length, so take good notes of the concepts, and read more about them after the seminar on DansDeals.com and on the DansDeals Forums.

-If you are on an intermediate level: You may know of many of the concepts I talk about but you should still learn more than enough to make attending worth your time and effort.

-If you are on an expert level: You probably already know most of what I’m going to talk about so feel free to attend, but don’t expect 2.5 hours of new information, it may be a complete waste of your time.  Some experts have told me that it was worthwhile, others have said it was not, I guess it depends on what kind of expert you are 🙂

Seating is limited so book your ticket first and then tell your friends :D
Seminars that I have run so far (Crown Heights, NY. Boro Park, NY. Lakewood, NJ, Chicago, Cleveland, Los Angeles, and Teaneck) have sold out so don’t procrastinate!

Have a question or want a specific topic covered? Tweet @DansDeals using the hashtag #DDS5T

Hope to see you there!

Dan I have tickets for the Teaneck seminar I just wanted to thank you for being such a giving and selfless person as you don’t profit from these seminars and I can only imagine they must be exhausting. Thanks for everything you do you are truly special.

Mechitza?

Hi,

Would love to join! Will there be a mechitza?

netlevy

I have 2 Teaneck tickets looking to trade
please email me urgently before the FT gets sold out
my email address is netlevy@hotmail.com

Peggy Insel

Problem, ordered 2 tickets. Event Bee listed one. Confirmation e-mail noted 2. What to do?

arid

@DAN!!!!
CAN YOU PLEASE SETTLE THE QUESTION EVERYONE IS ASKING???
CAN WE TRADE? CAN WE SELL AT COST?
thanks

Dan

In LA we had some sections that were mixed and some that were separate, I’d imagine we would try to do the same to accommodate everyone but there will not be a mechitza.

I’m not doing any refunding or transferring of tickets, but we’re not going to check ID at the door. If you have a ticket you’ll be allowed in.
I just don’t want to see these being scalped or else maybe we will just have to check ID…

@reuvenhunt:
L’mayla mey’teva.

@baruch:
Same.

MosheD

samuel

Anyway I can be there but won’t be on the pictures on your site?

Dave

When you coming to miami beach??
We are waiting for you here. Lots of ppl here for the winter.

Lol, of course.
There were lots of non-jews in CLE and LA.

Dan

@me:
The rest of the tickets may already be in people’s carts, keep on refreshing and trying!

Chaim

Confirmed! ( this must be what it felt like last week for the delta tickets)

Judah

@Dan since this one looks like it will sell out within the next couple hours maybe make one in Monsey for night after..?

NC Jew

Also I live in the Carolinas and haven’t been able to attend these seminars, I just wanted to say how beautiful it is that you give so much of your time and talents to help so many Tzedaka organizations. Yasher Koach!

kitchen

@Judah: Looks like it sold out!!

Oops

cant get it to work. grey screen. can anyone help?

Happy Thanksgiving

Dan, thank you for all the efforts. All of us appreciate it & we cant thank you enough. Tizke L’mitzvos may the zchus of tzedaka keep you & your family healthy ad meah v’esrim

Suggestions

Dan, handouts will be great. cant take notes as quick as you move your slides. and please try to focus on an average intelligent person, who knows how to crate a BB account, and how to book a rt award with another destination in US, but want to learn more techniques of booking awards tickets, building miles, safe value of VR on CC etc. Thank you

Rivka

I could not open the site to order ticket

smile

Can we pls have another seminar in Boro Park, I wasn’t a fan yet when you held the first one here.

Jmd

A) can you bring laptop?
B) bought ticket for friend to go with can I take a diff friend cause he can’t go

Fraidy

Is there a way we can get tickets? JJ used to live by us in our basement. Let us know if u can get us 2 tickets tot he 5 towns seminar. Let me know thanks

loving vacations

I want to request a seminar in boro park or in monsey… when I decided to go 5 towns it was sold out 🙁

Stacie

Would you ever consider doing a seminar in Pittsburgh?

Jennifer

Can you do another in 5 towns or queens as this is sold out? Are there more tickets available?

YYZ

@Dan Why don’t you make a Toronto seminar? Its only 35 min away.

Victor Sabbagh

Its not fair I tried a few times go on site and buy ticket and the link didn’t work
And now I see its sold out. Please if I can still get a ticket contact me

Victor Sabbagh

Can come instead #102

Nochum

Hi,
Is you ctown email still functioning ? I emailed you there can you tell me if you got it.

Nils

I would like to buy a Teaneck ticket if someone has one for sale

Joe

Dan, would you ever consider doing an online seminar ( paid subscription, of course) so that it’s not limited to a few hundred people ?

boro park

missed it

Mike B

My guess is that the limited number is intentional so the info doesn’t get to accessible and devalue it. I would agree with this reasoning. Also, no recording devices. 😉

RivkaO

Yes, Dan could you please do a webinar, it would be great for all of us that are missing out!

Shlomo

DDS5T Aftermath: where are you coming from? Im coming from Boro Park

Joe

@Mike B: But so many people can’t get tickets. And how would anyone know if its being recorded ? Do they check everyone’s pockets & confiscate phones ?

chaim

Anymore tickets? Would like to come, but I see it just got sold out.

Sammy

Dan it seems like DDS is HOTTER than any deal you ever post 🙂

PBaruch

I’m in Dan! Hope to see you in person and give you a big shulem aliechim!

Mechitza

Anyone who is asking for a mechitza shouldn’t be reading this website. The internet is assur. How dare Dan allow people to sit next to their spouses! Such a shonda!

eve

now the question is – will Dan honor the people that couldn’t buy tickets cuz the site was jammed and now they lost out???

Leah

How do I get tickets for the seminar at the young israel of lawrence cedarhurst? Please email me

HSS

Dan – Kol Hakavod for all fees going to Tzedakah, I guess the quick sellout shows you that you can probably charge more next time and it will still sell out! More money to Tzedakah! I honestly think if you charged double you would still sell out, albeit slower.

I did not buy right away, and now I missed out. My loss.

HSS

Well I’ll be DANNED!!!!!!

YILC member

YILC is a huge shul, why not move the seminar to the ballroom or the main shul and open it up to more people. I would like to go but there are no more tickets

Respect

I am coming without my husband and would appreciate a mechitzah, where ladies can sit comfortably, not bumping into a man sitting on their side, or subject to men checking out ladies fashion trends. Not appropriate. really. Please offer us respect, and allow us to sit in a ladies only area.

DK

@Ari:

YILC has a parking lot but it is not that big (Probably 30-45 spots) There is parking on the surrounding side streets but be careful to look at signs, some of the streets only allow parking on one side and may have times restrictions. I am sure the Nassau County cops will not miss the opportunity to hit their quotas tonight.

Thank you for last night it was great to hear it all from “THE MAN”

Yankee

Dan your a beast. So much so, I would like to give my opinion on the seminar. You displayed you prowess over the whole CC/Miles art. It’s unreal. In my opinion, I think the seminar was for intermediate for the most part then towards the end were for more advanced. It wasn’t that the concepts were that hard, but rather the speed you deliver them at. Obviously with so much to talk about in so little time you’re not to blame in the least. So this is more of a PSA. Either study up or be ready to be blown away. Either way, Thanks Dan.

JJ

Dan where are the pictures of last night in 5T

Good Job!

First half was low level. Good for someone who never read.
Second part was good.
I would organize it a bit better. even more basic stuff had Some holes. happy to help with next event.
Delivery was good, crowed was very good.

Amir

Hi Dan! Ever consider hosting a seminar over video conference/webex so that you can reach a larger audience? I’d love to attend one in-person but have moved overseas to the UK for work. It could be a great way to raise a large amount of money for The Levi Yitzchak Family Center or any other charity. Just an idea! 🙂
