Again, I don't think the statement date has anything to do with it. What I'm guessing counts is when the charges post to your account, usually 1-2 days after.

I got my 5000 RDM too. Between that and UA/grocery/home improvement bonuses it is still a card worth keeping IMO but the loss of a full waiver means I probably won't use it for anything else in 2020.

Does anyone know if the CS300 exit row (12) is worth a premium seat fee for a 2 hour flight? If all seats are about the same, Ill just try to get a free one at check in.

Is the certificate given on top of normal points earned or instead of (like the choice 2-night deal seems to be)? I can't find any info in T&C or FAQ.

Anyone know if this hotel considered a Westin for the purposes of the current brand promo ? It says Westin only vaguely on the website and I thought it was not branded that way anymore ?
