The blogosphere was taken over by the United passenger story who was involuntary denied boarding and taken out of the plane by force. EVERYONE had something to say so they are not left behind…I guess. I have seen some ridiculous headlines in this space but some were soooooo bad that I felt sick to my stomach. So I am not going to say anything about it at all. You certainly don’t need another expert’s opinion. We have so many more important things happening in our world…
I don’t have much for you today so it is an opportunity to take a breather and use my monthly lifeline. This blog has been a labor of love and what it earns is not making me rich. Actually, it keeps me from that as I have stopped taking clients because I just like the fun I am having here and I am helping a lot more people with this platform. Yeah I am not normal.
The extra little money my blog earns keeps it functioning as a business with the few extra opportunities this allows me to deduct things I would normally pay out of pocket. Plus I now get my family’s credit cards with my links and get paid for it #winning. What is left over after paying WordPress techie guy on call, TBB reader events, hosting fees, Mailchimp for the email subscriber, etc…goes to some family dinners and a few dates with my wife…who still supports everything I do, which is amazing really as I am known to get a little angry lol.
Again, the main source of revenue here is readers getting travel rewards credit cards with my links. Secondary source is my Amazon link which has plummeted after JetBlue started giving 3 miles per dollar. The rest is an occasional click. It appears the VPN Express affiliate link below will finally get over the minimum payout threshold, hooray! That’s it. No ads bothering you at all times so page views don’t mean anything in $ terms as they do in Boarding Area blogs. But being independent is really important to me!
I cut and pasted this below from March so…there. Hope BestOffersPatrol finds some time to do a helpful comment with the best cards you must hurry and have now as it is always the last chance lol.
Or maybe I just hit a wall?
And of course the gif…
I appreciate all the support to keep TBB going! I focus on the content here and hardly ever spend time on promoting my site. I rely on you to forward my URL to your family and friends, subscribe and participate in the comments. Thank you!
I get bombarded by crap to promote to readers all the time. I delete them. I only offer links to stuff I use and like myself! I don’t know how other bloggers do it…I mean, promote crap just so they can make some money, boo!
And now for the official Disclosure: Some links on this site, like the Amazon links, may be affiliate links. If you click on one of these links and buy from the affiliated company, then I receive some small compensation. The modest income helps to keep this blog going. Affiliate links do not increase your cost, and I only use them for products or services that I’m familiar with and that I feel may deliver value to you.
The stuff below is TBB approved!

Best VPN! Worked flawlessly in Iran. Based on reader feedback and discussions with mega travelers, this baby just works everywhere, including China. And it is easy to use too, if I can do it you sure can too. Check it out!
BEST password manager! I LOVE this program and have been using it for years. Without it I would really not be able to function online! It also acts as a form filler and password generator. Best money I ever spent online! You can check it out for free before you decide to buy HERE.
The most reliable online shopping portal imho! Not the highest rates but I NEVER had an issue with them and they pay fast!

I have had two accounts here for many years. No fees! It does not pay the highest interest rates but it is still high. The best online bank website in my opinion. If you are into credit card churning please be aware that the company pulls your credit report from all three agencies if you apply for a checking account (NOT the savings account!). You can learn more about this in the Capital One 360 website. If you open an account you can earn $25 and they pay me $20. Start HERE.
We both earn $10 I think. TopCashBack has the highest cash back rates consistently. Start HERE.
