Headed to Hawai'i this weekend, v excited to go back. Couldn't decide whether this was a travel thread post or a CC thread post, ultimately settled on here since this trip is literally happening because of this thread.

Flights:
-Whatever the SW points equivalent of $49 is each way for four tickets + 1 companion pass to Oahu and back
-58k Amex rewards turned into 75k Virgin miles (30% bump) turned into five RT tickets to Lihue

Hotels:
-Two nights at Royal Hawaiian on Waikiki
-Four Nights at Grand Hyatt Kauai w/ Globalist status
-Two nights at Moana Surfrider on Waikiki

Rental cars:
-Bunch of free days from National due to work stuff

Heading to Hanauma Bay to look for @KatKid's wedding ring, going on some waterfall hikes, hitting up the turtle beach on the Northshore, and eating delish food in Oahu. Kicking it at GH Kauai, hitting up the canyon, taking boat trip (GTFO helicopters) to Napali Coast. Plan on winning multiple dang days.

Literally zero travel costs for this trip. gE premium subscription really paying off.

I had 650k AA miles but now only have 100k because I used a shitload of them last year for first class RT to the UK. very sad. wish I still had them so I could blow them all on first class RT to somewhere else.

i blew a bunch (not that many) of miles on a trip to greece this spring and then i had to cancel because of work and it cost me a ton of money to have the miles refunded, but i'm still kinda glad to have them back.
we understand it better now that the american century is over and some of us sound more and more like serbs.

I recently acquired my first ever miles and now I'm obsessed with acquiring more.

What's the latest on Ink Biz? I currently hold the Preferred. What's the cancellation / bonus game on that card? I'm only finding info on the CSP/CSR.

Guys, I think I'm in trouble with Amex.

Every time I try to apply for a card--one that I've never had before--I get a message before submitting the application that says something like, "Our records show you have 500 credits cards, so you can't open an account with us. If you cancel now, we won't pull your credit score."

How do I get back on Amex's good side?

Question from a co-worker. If I have Chase UR earned on a lower card, can I get a CSR and use the previously earned points at the CSR level of redemption in the portal?
I got a guy on the other line about some white walls

Also, getting caught up. Can I just apply for biz card no problem?

Also, why is everyone saying they’re waiting until January?

Get the SW Biz card in December and wait to hit your min spend until January.
