I've got a 2.5 hr layover in Denver in late September :sad: I think I'll see if I can change to a different flight home from SMF.
FYI: The Escape Lounges at SMF are now open for those with Amex Platinum cards. The Escape Lounge in Terminal A opened in late May; Terminal B reportedly opened this week.

Ok, quick question my next CIP statement period is 7.2-8.3 and I finished the MSR (yes, triple checked my math this time) over the weekend. When will the points show up as pending in my account? Nothing but the points for purchases are there right now and even though I triple checked my math, I'm nervous until I see them show up in the pending.
It can take a few days, but usually within a week.

    @SouthFayetteFan and @palhockeymomof2 - rethinking DH's next card. He hardly uses cc's so I am reithinking getting him the 3x CFU. Thinking I should [...] him from my CF. I think that will yield more points in the long run. Your thoughts?

    ETA - I see there is no [...] bonus for the CF....going back to CFU - maybe at some point I will have him [...] me for that card too.

    ETA again - just applied for the CFU for him and was approved. Thanks for your help. (Yes - I used a dischurner's link.)
    What's done is done so not trying to cause regret...but CF has support links lol.

    You get $50 and the person signing up gets $150. (So basically 20,000 URs from the one signup). If that's going to be his everyday card though, once he spends $10,000 the 3% works out better so if he is going to use it a lot it's not that bad.

    it looks like it will apply to Chase and Citi. This change is on Priority Pass removing the feature, not Amex as previously thought. The guess is Chase and Citi just hasnt notified their customers...
    Where do we find that? The link only states that it affects the program you were emailed about so it doesn't have the feel like this is a blanket change and there is some membership level that will continue to access it. What is troubling is they labeled it as "PRIORITY PASS / PRIORITY PASS SELECT" so it seems like more than just the CC memberships will be affected.

    My PP is from the CSR and I haven't received an email yet. Fingers crossed :laughing:

    I think they're grasping at straws.
    I agree. I read that line more as if someone is paying for a PP Select membership (ie its not via a CC) PP will email them about this. They’ve probably left it to the banks to notify their customers.

    yeah, i think it was an over reaction from the community. i just got the email and it does infact show the Amex logo on top.
    i think PP email is going through amex because i have 2 amex PP cards to which i never registered(didnt see a point of it) but only my CSR PP is registered with PP which is also why i thought it ran true since the email is from PP.

    Idk if anyone likes Skippy peanut butter but that’s all we buy. Sams club has a deal right now online for two huge jars for $6.98. I also got a big box of Mac and cheese cups for cheap.

    I know I posted about the Dave and busters deal but I wanted to follow up because Dh found a $5 off coupon so we got all day game passes for two for a total of $20 lol. We’re gonna do that tomorrow and then head to the character warehouse at the Vineland outlets. I’ve never been there before so I’m curious

    Thanks! We'll be flying out of SMF on the 27th, so will check it out! We have a positioning flight down to LAX, then hopping onto Delta One to Amsterdam. I'm looking forward to visiting the Delta Sky Club lounge down there too. If only they had the Centurion lounge open in time...who knows, it could happen!

    Announcement from Priority Pass that the restaurant benefit is going away August 1. So it would seem that it's not just Amex, but all credit cards with the benefit. >:(

    I just used my PP last week at MIA for breakfast at one of the restaurants for dd and myself. The server even put 2 bottles of water in with the meal for us. BOOOOOO.

    I’ve been to the Character Warehouse a few times and have seen some things that were currently being sold in the parks....my favorite purchase was a Cinderella phone case for around $7

    Chase CSR still has PP restaurants. It was confirmed by Thrifty Traveler.
    I do see this update from today in that post
    That leaves the Chase Sapphire Reserve as the best way to get an unrestricted Priority Pass membership. A Chase representative confirmed Thursday, July 11 that there are no changes to the Priority Pass Membership for Chase Sapphire Reserve cardholders.
    So for now, safe... let's see what happens in a few months once the dust settles with AmEx :) (or tomorrow, who knows :p )
