Honesty nobody here runs this site as far as we can tell. Most of the stuff you paid for hasn't been updated in some time. I would try to get what I can back but it will be hard. A lot of people have been tying to cancel accounts but nobody ever gets back too them.

You know where.
If they end up charging your card, I would file a claim with your card company. The admin of this site sold it to some dude who is, as far as we can tell, not active or dead.

If you paid with paypal, they are normally really good about refunding your money. Just call them.

You're funny. I've only ever filed two claims with PayPal on open-and-shut cases where I meet the requirements to be refunded, and they've declined my claims both times. F**K PAYPAL.

I agree. PayPal is a f*cking sham, their customer service doesn't give a f*ck about you. I've stopped using them wherever humanly possible and now I use my Discover card where I can...their customer service is great and I pay my shit off every month anyways so f*ck it.

Get yourself an card with miles rewards and start flying for free/cheap like I do. Me and my gf's tickets to PR and back set me back a whopping $300 =)

That's rather expensive man for flying out of NYC to Puerto Rico. What days were you flying down and back?
Without even looking into it much, you could sign up for a Delta Amex, get the signup bonus, and fly JFK to Puerto Rico for 35K miles each and $11.20 each.

Pretty cheap when you consider tickets were 700-1200 for 2 round trip. Most of my other miles were used on flying to the Bahamas and Atlanta for free.

Ya this Discover card rewards program is actually hella lame. I've spent like $10k on the card probably and have gotten back like $150. When I get to NY I'll look for something better.
Pick an airline and hotel card to pair together. The wife and I went to London last year, we are going to Amsterdam/Paris in April and going to Davos/Munich in September on points. It's easy to add up if you guys are getting separate accounts with separate signup bonuses, free nights, free flights, etc.

Discover is not a good card at all for traveling, but it is nowhere near as bad as a Capital One card for traveling!

I've got Chase Saphire and Barclays Arrival+ for travel miles and USAA for cash rebate (5% for gas and groceries). Very happy with all three.

Amex Hilton is a good bet too. I have the Surpass I think it is. $75 annual fee. They had a points special with spend of 2k in 3 months and gives gold status. It equalled a night at a Waldorf and Hilton honors government rate on leisure.

I spent 4 nights in London in crawling distance to Parliament last year for what I'd pay for a bed toilet and sink in the same area. Upgraded room, massive points multiplier and £20 pound breakfast for two for the stay. More than recovered my $75.

Also if you're NATCA. Union plus website Budget rental car. Unbeatable. I FAMed to BOS and got a Full sized for 19 bucks a day. Gov rate at a hampton was 99. 5 days in a major US city under $500. Priceless.
