Re: Now i'm getting lots of Credit Card choices!

The FICO criteria are published and the "rules" I mentioned are a fairly conservative approach in terms of managing the criteria.

Wow! That might be a bit much. Only Citi would keep approving you with that aggressive pattern 😜

Re: Now i'm getting lots of Credit Card choices!

True, but not nearly as much as most people think. If you close a card, your available credit "may" drop, resulting in higher credit utilization %. However, there are ways around this. For...

Re: Tips on flying with a 14 month old to the UK please.

Oh there is a way. Just call up the airline; they might even waive the ticket change fee for an upgrade sometimes, as long as you pay the fare difference....😜

Re: Now i'm getting lots of Credit Card choices!

Re: Now i'm getting lots of Credit Card choices!

Personally, 28 is a bit much for me just in terms of managing them all, but there are lots of people in the points and miles community that have that many, and most of those people are incredibly...

Re: Tips on flying with a 14 month old to the UK please.

It depends on the airline and type of bassinet. Some are indeed designed only for true infants and not for times of turbulence.

However, the one DD used on Qantas was for younger toddlers as...

Re: Tips on flying with a 14 month old to the UK please.

Our DD is now on her way to 4 but have taken several trips to Europe and Australia with her from West Coast.

My first tip would have been to get a bassinet seat bc as others said it can be a...

Re: did not get old passport back...

So do the US ones. Recently renewed and old one came back in a separate envelope a few days later.

Re: US cracking down on overstayers, even if married to US citizens

The "utilitarian approach" could cut a different way. I think enforcing the immigration laws somewhat harshly could be good for the whole system in the long run (although harsh for the individuals...

Re: Sweeteners - do you use any?

Your kids were raised in France for a substantial part of their lives, if I remember correctly? Isn't drinking fruit juice sodas other sugary drinks etc among kids less pervasive than in the US? That...

Re: Taking back the USA, one acre at a time...

Sadly it's not such a bad price around my neck of the woods 😱. But then it's probably all the Californians who ruined Portland 😜

Re: British Airways Flight + Car

This. Most people don't, but I always encourage people to read the fare rules. Also, as an aside, if using an OTA, be prepared to face obstacles with changes, additional fees, and having to deal...

Re: Winter weather 2016-2017

It's the exact same thing here in Northern California. We do have some legitimate flooding concerns but they are mostly localized to specific creeks and streams etc. You'd swear the world was...

You are not an idiot. That is also our bread of choice (although I prefer the good grains version).

Re: Things you like about the US

Tickets originating in the UK are often cheaper than tickets to the UK originating in the US.

However, UK does have large fees/taxes, so it can be much cheaper to fly into Dublin or other...

Re: Things you like about the US

Come to think of it, maybe we should just shut up about it in case they all get in on the game and devalue our points and miles further!

Re: Things you like about the US

I actually love all the great credit card offerings in the US. The sign up bonuses and rewards earning structure are often not nearly as good in Europe and elsewhere.

I pay for just about...

Re: Holiday Homesickness - What do you do?

This has been my general experience as well.

Our Christmas tends to be a mix of the old ways and traditions, a few American additions, and even a couple of things from other countries altogether...

Re: What was the biggest culture shock when you moved to the USA?

I don't get this either. In my first year here, I went to an event where little flags were handed out. I kept my one for a while in my room in an apartment I shared with 2 others at the time. ...

Being in California too, I feel your pain but believe it is ultimately worth it for us in terms of the weather general offerings etc. Fwiw it seems...
