Just ask at the gate

Only if you pay $$$

Just get there early and try standby I guess?

Nope.

Just ask nicely. And if the agent says no, try again with a different one. Even before I had status, I’ve never had this fail as long as you’re polite and flexible, and never once was I charged. And thank them if they do help you.

Go on standby n try your luck.

If the flight has empty seats and you’re at the gate when it’s about to take off it’s usually no problem and shouldn’t cost a dime

Wouldn’t do that. Seen multiple times, Try to get on an earlier flight, put on Standup, doesn’t clear n lose the original flight allocation as well.

Best cards to get for points maximization?

I don’t drive and thus gas isn’t an important factor. Major spends are probably groceries, dining, and travel.
