Nope. That is just not true.

SOME grocery stores absolutely do report L3 data, with gift card purchases clearly and obviously called out, as plain as day. Some don't.

As good as it's likely to get. Not as good as it would be if we were doing a long trip on short notice, but it's the best we will be able to do before this particular cert expires (then we will get...

Yeah, that's what I was thinking, but I think there's an additional fly in the ointment on that (wanting to earn miles for the paid seats) -- see the separate thread Combining PNRs to waive bag fees?...

Fortunately for me, the booking window for the flights I want is still a couple weeks out, so I have time to try to clarify things a bit. I guess the best way to know would...

It's clear that there are a limited number of award seats (on any given flight) available at the lowest level (costs fewest points).
It's also clear that there are a limited number of paid seats (on...

Do points tranfers qualify as "activity" to keep points from expiring?

I know there are handful of ways to keep Qantas points from expiring - most of them, obvious and typical (fly and earn some points or fly an award and burn some, or earn some by shopping). Some...
