Is the bolded portion your interpretation of your own contract, or does the contract actually say this? If you simply don't use the credit, why should you have to pay them anything? If you get fired,...

This is a bad trend for frequent fliers generally, as it weakens the value of elite status. The various games that OW carriers play to push the envelope of the OW rules to favor their own elites over...

I have a couple Chase business cards, which I understand to be technically tied to my SSN even though I provided my EIN when I applied for them.

I take issue with your argument in two ways: 1) revenue from optional fees often just increases profit, and doesn't necessarily result in lower fares; and 2) there's not really any opportunity for...

Getting slightly off topic, but do credit card companies even have the capability to automatically do this? How can they tell which charge a refund "corresponds to"? AFAIK, they can't, and a credit...

This Engadget article is terrible. It's not clear that the author even used the product; just basically did a copy-paste from Bose.com. BTW, biggest chuckle is at the "clinically proven" bit. The...

Incomplete Trip Reports should be marked "incomplete" (resolved)
