We just might have too, you never know.  all we have for backups are 6 other holes. 4 pairs of metal snips for the fence. 2 ladders, one pole vaulting stick and adkins teleporter.   We're getting low on options for everyone.  Smiley LOL

Trust me, I feel your pain.  Trying to run every possible scenario of three different booking cabins on Virgin America for our BOS-LHR trip vs cash and/or miles on other SkyTeam airlines was wearing me thin.  I finally decided that the math worked out to spend a little more and get a little less value (on the face of it, but oh the horror) on VS miles since it would put all 4 of us into the next Medallion status and earn enough RDMs for at least half of a domestic trip by using "Cash + Miles."


I feel like that paragraph should mean something to me now that i have skymiles and MR's to use..  not enough to cover a trip, but cash+miles maybe.   

 

Guess i'll just horde them till i learn how to use them effectively. 


Cash + Miles is usually a bad idea and in a lot of cases it would be better to just pay one direction with miles and the other direction with a credit card.  In this one case, crediting our SkyMiles accounts on flights booked directly through Virgin Atlantic results in full elite qualifying miles, segments, and dollars, as well as earning redeemable miles.  Most of the time, unless it's an all-revenue flight, you'd never earn anything - the future earnings (and potential additional future perks) actually made it a wash for us this time around, particularly as a quartet of round-trip premium cabin VS flights was going to come with seriously hefty fees (well over $2k) anyway.


Seems mostly straight forward.   Someday i'll try that out.  at this point i'd be happy with a staycation, just to have one LOL

I say the supply order for camo and a request for more seal team members.  They are going to waiting to ambush you and remove all your credit card apps and burn them.  


And all the fathers can bring their boy scout sons ( and girl scout gals ) and get their camping badges as they shovel your apps onto the campfire.

 


That's a bad mental image.. all of a sudden it reminded me of a WWII Doc about the concentration camps and burning stuff.

Re: Garden Club - June 2018

@Jago22 seriously if you ever need any help trying to plan a trip with points and miles, I'm a PM away.  I wish I had more free time to travel than I do (although I do realize I am much more fortunate than a lot of people), so at least I can live vicariously through others.
