What happened? Why did it take so long?
Not entirely sure, but I met the spend in one swoop paying my taxes at the end of March. For some reason it didn’t trigger the award of miles and each time I called there was some debate as to whether the payment of taxes qualified. On each call, after conferring with a supervisor, they said it did qualify and to expect my miles at the next statement. This went on for 3 months.....so I was happy to see those miles today.

For all those churning for Japan, Lucky at OMAAT has a look at ANA's new First & Business class cabins. ANA plans to refresh their premium cabins on 12 Boeing 777-300ER planes.
Very nice! DD19 and I are currently sitting in a very crowded JAL lounge awaiting our first class flight to Tokyo. DH and DS22 left about an hour ago on ANA business class (they will fly first class ANA back). We were all originally on the same JAL flights (2 in first and 2 in business), but decided to change the boys to ANA when I was able to score the VS deal. It was too good to pass up, and it will be fun for us to compare first class experiences :) I think @calypso has done both, and I can't remember which one she perferred. I'm looking forward to my first glass of Cristal in about an hour :)

Cross your fingers that DH can get himself and DS to the hotel from the airport without yours truly in charge. DD and I are taking odds and it doesn't look good, ROFL!!!

Quick PSA for anyone flying JAL from SFO in business/first. We were able to access the Cathay Pacific lounge with our tickets, and it was *much* better. Pretty much empty for about an hour and we just hit the noodle bar about 5 minutes before they closed it. We moved over to check out the JAL lounge but should have stayed put :)

These flights are one of my best redemptions ever. Cash price for all the flights would have been about $55k. I don't have my numbers in front of me, but I want to say we are in for about 560,000 miles (we were able to advantage of a transfer bonus to VS), and about $1500 (might be off on that ) for all four of us.

{Edited for my silly spelling of Cristal--not sure where that came from. Clearly I'd had too much, LOL).

I think my post before might’ve gotten missed. If I do a pick up order through sams club can I still get the 5% with dosh that says in store?
When I've done pickup I always paid online to make the picking up faster. I think I did see an option to pay at the store, so that should work with dosh, I think.

    I'll let everyone know if I get a reply. There was a Dosh thread on the budget board not long ago that asked about having to link accounts so I must not be the only one. I keep meaning to say, while playing around with the app, I notice on my offers it says do you want to share offer. I wondered if that Sams or Kroger offer that some of us have and others don't can be shared that way? @wendow or anyone else let me know if you want me to try. I hit it and it went to something that looks like it could be texted or emailed. Not sure if you are sharing that specific offer or it is just a link to Dosh in general.
    me please! let me know what info you need.

    Can't wait to hear what you think of JAL First (only if it's good, though, lol), since we'll be on that same route in a little less than a year! Great to know about the Cathay Pacific lounge...

    I had an accidental self refer on my DHs account when I was applying for the Hilton Biz. The points are still there, so I will keep an eye out. I also got extra points "acceleration".
    I just looked at DHs points activity and he got in May and June. Looks like once each month for each of his 2 MR earning cards...416495

    I am really starting to hate Amex. I tried Twitter again, and after back and forth I get this. And, no, the spend was met in mid April if you actually count up the charges. I cannot type all the names I have for them here..

    "I spoke to you via Live Chat on 6/12/2019 and confirmed your spend was met on 5/22/2019. Please allow 12 weeks from this date to contact us to research this matter further. We appreciate your patience. Thank you."

    Dates announced for ROTR!
    Ironically enough just yesterday I made the final decision to NOT go in January over MLK day since that meant I would have to renew AP's. The pain of being a grown up...we will just get new AP's next spring/summer. Despite our middle of October trip I could not deal with not using AP's one more time before they expire so we fly out December 6. Now scrambling piecing together a DVC reservation. Oh well. I figure I might as well be excited for the ride and not worry about crowds.

    I actually need a new phone case because mine is scratched. It was just a cheap one from Walmart awhile back that was on clearance. I just recently watched a video of Tim Tracker at the Character Warehouse and there was already SWGE merch there
    I love Character Warehouse especially the Vineland one. Over last two years constant has been Star Wars and AK merchandise. But as said they are really hit and miss. But when you get good stuff at a good deal it is SO GOOD! Last October I got a trick or treat candy bowl for $8. Exact same thing they were selling full price in the parks. @amalone1013 I got that Tiki room shirt too. Now we are going in December I can wear it; when I bought it I wondered when I would since Christmas time here a short sleeve is too cold.

    My DH will not go in...he waits at a table outside with a drink
    Mine too! Starbucks is conveniently located. Although on our January trip people were literally trying to take a picture I grabbed out of my basket. After the third time I had DH come in and follow me so he could guard my stuff! :)

    Just called AA to try to put our JAL flights on hold so DH can confirm some dates at work tomorrow morning. Of course after I put all the info into the automated system, it says "we're experiencing extremely high call volume right now, please call back later, goodbye." :crazy2:
