  1. Can anyone provide a referral offer on the Amex Everyday preferred that’s better than the 15k points public offer? PM me.
  2. AERO app

    Does anyone know if we can get a copy of AERO installed on our personal iPads? If not, is foreflight the way to go, or are there any cheaper alternatives? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Because the good guys leave to pursue better options.
  4. Gun Talk

    My bet is on the deep fryer at Burger King.
  5. Gun Talk

    Is this technically a pistol and did you have to do anything special when purchasing it?
  6. Texas Church Shooting

    I thought we were done with you
  7. I understand what you’re saying, but as a retiree, I would think your best option would be either the CSP with its low annual fee or the Amex plat at 550 with SPG, Hilton, and Marriott gold, Delta sky club, Centurion Lounge and Priority Pass, $200 in airline credit, $200 in Uber credit, $100 in Global Entry Credit, AMEX offers. Sapphire Reserved hasn’t piqued my interest in the least. To each his own, however.
  8. The TPG article you link states that the CSP and United Explorer (both of which have a ~$100 annual fee) qualify for the same benefit. No reason to get the CSR and pay that annual fee when you can get better benefits from the AMEX without playing any annual fee.
  9. On another note, I just got my 4th Amex Platinum (regular, business, mercedes and now Charles Schwaab). $800 a year in airline gift cards and $600 in uber credits!
  10. Luxury hotel collection is practically useless. You can book government rate directly with SPG, Hilton, or Marriott and still get the Gold benefits conferred by the Amex Platinum. You can’t book gov rate through the Chase portal.
  11. The Wikipedia does not provide much info. Would you mind providing a quick rundown of the differences?
  12. Leadership at the 'Deid

    What exactly does a tanker patch do?
  13. AFPC functionals and leadership

    The other three don’t, and from what I understand they still prefer to get guys with -38 experience for their T-6 IPs.
  14. AFPC functionals and leadership

    No MX officers at UPT bases.
  15. Not always. I’ve been charged the fee on a new card once or twice (out of 10 or 11 cards total) but it was quickly resolved by reapplying for SCRA online.
  16. What's wrong with the Air Force?

    The downside is when you refuse and TACC bitches to your CC who then decides you’re not a “team player.” Not a risk with my current boss, but seen some who like to second guess their ACs decisions.
  17. NFL Ratings are Way Down

    Think you might want to review what equity and equality mean...
  18. Leaving the Air Force for the Airlines

    I’d caution against showing your cards before you absolutely have to. A shitty commander might give you a crap job, no strat, or a shitty deployment out of spite. Even a good commander might give you a crap job, no strat, or shitty deployment to avoid having to give it to someone who is on the fence.
  19. Let’s try this again: when you need your flight boots, your flying unit will issue them.
  20. Do you mean booking GOV rate through amextravel.com? Or just paying for a GOV rate room with an AMEX? I've done the second many a time, but I don't know of any way to book government rate through the Amex travel portal.
  21. Promotion and PRF Information

    I’m not defending his actions in the least. Just saying there’s about a 0% chance he gets brought up on charges for or convicted for dereliction of duty.
  22. Promotion and PRF Information

    Seeing as he’s the Wing/CC and will need to determine who to nominate for IDE, who’s to say he’s not doing this to evaluate their records and select the best candidates? Pretty sure that argument would easily hold up against your Dereliction of Duty charges.
  23. Promotion and PRF Information

    Can someone provide some “best of” stories from his Sq/CC days? I’ve heard less than stellar things, but always in vague terms.
  24. Security clearance questions

    So you’ve started taking bribes before getting the job...
