Haha omg!!! Equifax , the justice department, et.al are probably hoping/counting-on that we all will just forget what happened last summer…and the sad truth is that they are right, within a year most people will not give a flying you-know-what about it.

I’m planning on taking them to small claims, rather than wait for a class action that would probably net a little more than the equivalent of more ID protection for just Equifax.

Good for your Jonathan. I just hope small claims proves worth it for you. My guess is that on a $/hr basis pursuing legal action will prove unrpofitable for most, dozens of hours of time spent for maybe a few hundred $$$?? The impact of the breach is obviously way worse of a $ impact than that, but hey this is the world we live in now.

That timeshare presentation report is a fun read. I love how they get pulled into the presentation because someone wants to talk about their dog and they are like, ‘of course you want to talk to us about our dog!’ I also like how having been a middle school science teacher is somehow a relevant skill set in this scenario. Anyway, it’s charming and also really thorough.

I just used AA gift card to purchase basic economy tickets 4 days ago. No problem at all for me.

The linked post has an update “You CAN use GC’s to buy a basic economy fare, which I was told you could not. However, you cannot use residual funds from a canceled ticket purchased with a GC to book another flight in a lower category.”

Updated 3:30pm PT on 2/8: I just received an update from Brant, here is what he said:

After another lengthy phone call to AA, turns out that the agent I originally talked to yesterday was only half correct. You CAN use GC’s to buy a basic economy fare, which I was told you could not. However, you cannot use residual funds from a canceled ticket purchased with a GC to book another flight in a lower category. The original tickets were in economy and I was trying to use the funds for basic economy. The original agent assumed that this restriction applied to using GC’s to make a basic economy ticket from the start. In other words, bad information.

Sorry for the misinformation everyone it looks like you can use AA gift cards to buy American Airlines basic economy tickets, but only if the AA funds do not come from a regular American Airlines economy ticket I hope that makes sense.
