We bring you examples of Amazon Prime Day greed, how to earn miles buying cars, eat Air France gum, visit Eritrea if you dare, see what drug overdoses do, visit Hitler’s huge resort being renovated, look at the airports in Argentina, how to sue banks and learn about bubbles, rip on Drop and Jetsmarter and lots of other stuff. Covfefe!

In case you may have missed it (joking), the Citi® / AAdvantage® Platinum Select® World Elite™ MasterCard® credit card for 60,000 AA miles supposedly ends on July 13. The Business version of the card is also at 60,000 AA miles and somehow is not ending on the same day. Both cards are available with my links (insert imaginary red arrow). And that’s my sales job, thanks for supporting good blogging practices.
Yesterday it was Amazon Prime Day in case you were comatose. I tweeted this: Bloggers are beside themselves pushing their own Amazon affiliate links. GREEEED! U can earn 3 JetBlue miles PER $1. I did not see ONE blogger mention the Jet Blue miles offer to their readers, NOT EVEN ONE! Instead, I must have seen THOUSANDS of Amazon affiliate links. Greed at its finest at the expense of readers, just SICK! More on that below in the BLOG BUZZ section 🙂
Just in case you were thinking about buying a car and earning miles or points with it…
Did you apply for a Chase travel rewards credit card recently that then offered a higher signup bonus? You have to read and do this!
The new government in Argentina is offering hope, including in its beleaguered airline industry. Watch them, I think it is going to be exciting.
The Trump administration has not killed the CFPB yet. Which just made it easier to sue banks. I wish they would make it easier to sue deceptive blogs too 🙂
Last time I flew Air France was when Lufthansa had a pilot strike and they rebooked me on it. For free of course. Where am I going with this? Did you know Air France has its own gum? It comes in two flavors: pistachio-macaroon and crème brûlée. Check out the video ad for it! The stuff you learn at TBB…
Your personal finance fix of the day: Where’s the Next Bubble? A fantastic read about investment bubbles! If we could only identify them before hand…
Remember a while ago I posted about that 3 mile long resort built by Hitler? I had told you it is going to be redeveloped. Well, the redevelopment is under way. It is going to be transformed into a luxury getaway!
The problem is out of control: In one year, drug overdoses killed more Americans than the entire Vietnam War did.
Eritrea’s Asmara is now a UNESCO World Heritage site. Some nice architecture and it should help tourism. But the government remains a basket case so this is your warning.
This section is for advanced level hobbyists and veteran blog readers & personal rants & stuff
I think I may have been the only blogger out there who did not push you to sign up for Drop. I think it is because I had no integrity at all according to some troll lol. There is no way I am going to give a small Canadian company access to all my credit card information. Plus all the push that went down to attract bloggers with referral links just left a bad taste in my mouth. On Twitter I said something about “Drop dead Drop” or something similar. So, as expected, they are having some “issues”. So, good luck to all.
Amazing how this blogger had the time to hack my site and point this out. If anyone knows how to do the paypal donation as a text link to replace my Amazon link so I can then do what I do best (cut and paste!) I would gladly go ahead and replace the Amazon link my readers know all about what they are giving up because I tell them. Not like most bloggers who went wild pimping their Amazon links all day yesterday 24/7. That DansDeals site almost broke from the numerous blog posts, yikes! Nobody calls this shit out and then I get bloggers calling me on my hypocrisy to shell out justice. It is a phucked up space, what can I say? Messes with your head. Phuck it!
You know what I bought from Amazon yesterday? Absolutely nothing!
I also never pimped my Jetsmarter links. Never liked that company. It appears they are now billing some of you $12,000 for that “free” flight. Good luck resolving that mess.
That Mileage Plus Go Visa prepaid card you were all hopeful for it may lead to some “opportunities”. Forget about it. I agree with the answer to the question who should get this card: No one. Absolutely no one. The card is a bad deal. You should not get it.
I finally got to $100 redemption level (went for a Starbucks card) in my Amex Blue Cash card. When I receive it, it is time to close this card and free me an Amex slot. This card had a good life, I will miss it.
And I leave you with this…TBB worthy dunk!
