Register for another promo by National Car Rental’s Emerald Club ONE TWO FREE. I always sign up but never proceed to get enough credits come my way. I think the reason is…I get better deals elsewhere the few times a year I may need a rental car.
Jet Blue 25% off Award Sale, hurry!
Looks like Citibank Thank You Points network added yet another foreign airline to its partners list: Jet Airways. Who cares, how about one we can use hey?
Questions to ask before accepting an airline voucher. If you can land one in the post Dr. Tao era. Thank the pumping bloggers who made numerous posts about the “incident”. THINK before you click!
Getting free stuff from timeshares presentations. I used to do this…a lot! But the behavior of these guys has gotten much worse (it was always bad but tolerable enough for the goodies lol) and after a horrible experience in a Hilton property in Orlando, we are done. I don’t think my wife has forgiven me for making her go through that one…Good luck to you!
The Cranky Flier analyzes Sun Country’s plans to to ULCC (Ultra Low Cost Carrier). Interesting.
I have been blogging about how drones are changing our society (among other things such as smartphones, robots, AI etc.) Here is proof: Demand for drones is exploding.
First, I had no idea there were Chinese immigrants living in the South for so long! I found this fascinating; watching them speak in the southern accent too! The untold story of the Mississippi Delta Chinese.
Looking forward to all the changes at Whole Foods now that Amazon is free to…attack the grocery business!
I feel very sad for employees who have 403 (b) retirement plans as usually Brokers Take Investors From the Penthouse to the Outhouse.
Japan’s Rural Aging Population. This is sad. I think the same is happening all over the world as the young abandon the rural areas for school and never come back…
Okay, I am going to stop posting eclipse stuff. But just one more. And it’s the best one so far. By far! The best photos and videos of the 2017 solar eclipse.
The coolest building in every state. Pretty cool. Obviously, the picks are subjective.
Here is another bizarre North Korean link. Back in 1962 a US soldier defected. Well, he just died in North Korea after a glorious career portraying evil American imperialists in North Korea propaganda films. Look at his two sons, WTF!
This section is for advanced level hobbyists and veteran blog readers & personal rants & stuff
Amex lost its ass by getting into the prepaid card market as in Bluebird, Serve, etc. Sold to Incomm. Probably does not apply to any of you anymore as most of these cards were killed. Actually, my wife’s Bluebird has somehow survived and there is $1.12 on it lol. If you ever dealt with customer service at Incomm and you are alive to talk about it, you are very lucky!
My daughter is getting another Authorized User card from her brother this time! Earn up to 10,000 Bonus Starwood Points for Adding Authorized Users on SPG Amex Card [Targeted]
Doctor of Credit linked to me yesterday. Thankfully, I did not appear next to a link by View From The Wing and one of his click-bait shocking videos, okay I am kidding #notreally. One thing he mentioned though and I so agree with was this, especially the motivation part!
As always, if you like a blog and want it to continue then you should support it if you can…it helps keep all of us here motivated to keep posting.
I received an email calling me a Travel influencer. I deleted it.
RIP Air Berlin’s Top Bonus #bankrupt.
And I leave you with this…
