Recently, we booked the United airlines from Houston to shanghai,china using United miles for the flights on June 2018. We have one year old baby and United charge 10% of
Paid adult ticket (for lap)which is around 120 dollars. Now it look like we might need to change time due to schedule change. We know the change fees for award ticket, but not sure how United will charge change fee for lap baby. Do they follow the change fees rules for award this or paid ticket? Thank you for comments.

If you change your tickets the price you are paying for the lap child may change, because it will be 10% + taxes of the new fare you are flying. And as far as the change fee goes you'll want to call United Airlines and get an exact answer from them about your specific flight, etc.

I talked with a United representative, but the person I talked to wasn't very helpful and I was slightly confused at the end of the call.

Hi Daraius,

When signing up for the Chase Ink Preferred Business card, can you get the bonus twice when signing up for two separate LLCs? On the application it asks for my SSN, which of course is the same on both applications, but each application lists a different LLC and IRS EIN. So... can I get the 100k bonus (available when applying through a Chase banker) twice for two separate LLC entities?



Million Mile Secrets

You can get the card and earn the bonus for 2 separate businesses. But that does not guarantee you will. The approval of your applications will depend on a lot of other factors as well.

Let us know if you end up getting the 100,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards point bonus. Recently, a team member applied for the card at a Chase branch and only got the 80,000 point bonus.

Thanks D. I'll keep you posted. I know right now that the public offer is 80k, and the offer through the branches is 80k as well. However, if you're able to reach a Chase Private Banker they still have access to the 100k offer.

Even if you're not a Chase Private Banking client, they'll usually be happy to help you apply because I believe even they get commissions based on card applications they process. If you need to reach one, email me and I'll put you in touch with my guy, he's more than happy to help.


I currently charge an average of $15,000/month and use my Capital One card for the 2% cash back. It has been great.
I also have quite a bit of Marriott points. I would like to get air miles from a carrier that flies international and not sure what is the best choice: Do I keep up with the 2% cash back and just purchase flights or is there a better way to use my monthly spend to get miles?
Thanking you in advance.

Million Mile Secrets

It depends on what categories your expenses fall under. If you spend a lot on travel and dining the Chase Sapphire Reserve is great because you'll get 3 Chase Ultimate Rewards points per $1 spent.
