I will try harder to stick with the more general stuff up front here so I don’t scare any new readers and leave the travel hacking related stuff for the Blog Buzz section near the end…
After posting that piece recently about how Cuba sucks, here is one of our own who went there on short notice and just hated it. I like it. I mean, the review! Cuba Is Actually A Terrible Place To Go. Some of the comments are…deranged…a little. These posts are probably awesome for Alexa blog rankings woohoo!
“You have to straddle me”. Sumner Redstone’s weird in-flight demands. Oh man, this was hilarious. That guy sounds like a giant douche bag, wow! What do you say reader former flight attendant Ramsey huh?
Supercar Private Clubs. Wow, the prices are, well, pricey! I am certain The Points Guy belongs to a few. You can get trip reports if you click on my links so I can afford one of these, we all can win, just
do it click it them all lol. Which one is your favorite to unleash your beast?
The Twin Prime Hero. What a story, especially if you are into math. Like, a math geek type. This guy had just completed his Ph.D. in Mathematics, he could not get a job and had to work at Subway to make ends meet. All along never stopping to prove a theorem that was torturing mathematicians for over a century. And then life changed….Wow. Enjoy reading stuff like this instead of how a passenger misbehaved aboard a plane or how the plane hit severe turbulence or the amazing Chase _____ (fill in for higher sales commission) credit card.
Your personal finance fix today will involve laughing at 2016’s worst financial commercials. If you don’t laugh, I don’t want to judge of course, but…I mean, come on, seriously? Must click! The winning video and the commentary had me on the floor laughing hysterically! Now, if you believe anything in these commercials you probably idolize these blogs and you are here by accident, you are hopeless, please leave!
I posted a picture of a prison in Tallinn some time ago and a reader let me know of his blog post visiting it #winning [Well, I had a nice picture to appear here but it is not working, boo!].
Fuel Surcharges on Korean’s SkyTeam Partners. Good stuff to know. I am afraid I move some points here and then Bang! #devaluation
Reader Peteco’s questions, any input?
Is there any flight deal search tool where you can set an automatic notice if there’s a price drop in a period of time? I have used google flights , but you can only set alarms for specific flights. If I wanna, say, a cheap flight from A to B in May, not sure how to approach it. I just check every few days through Ita or Google flights, but there has to be a better way.
Is there any rule for Amex applications, similar to Citi’s 2/65? Read somewhere once every 90 days, but there’s conflicting info about that.
Reader Brenton had a great comment which I am in full agreement. If I was not in full agreement, it would not be a great comment hehe:
And I leave you with this…
