Not much happened yesterday, so much of the action was devoted to selling the new Amex Platinum 60k link and the soon ending Amex SPG cards…and me wasting too much time trying to reason with blog haters yesterday in the comments accusing me of blatant selling and having no integrity. I mean, if that is not entertaining, I don’t know what is!
Try to register for this Delta promotion, it could be good for 1,000 Skymiles for every new partner you use. Read the fine print, I don’t know how to do arrows.
Loyalty Traveler did a deeper dive into the Marriott Rewards Cash and Points Reward Nights. Only to find that they are nowhere to be found. I always called the Marriott Rewards program the Delta of hotels. They are being a little nicer now not to scare off all the SPG loyalists. But it won’t last with these guys…
Silvercar, the rental car company, was bought by Audi. When you consider they only rented out Audis…this makes sense. Car companies are scrambling left and right to not get left behind with all the sharing economy, autonomous vehicles and other market interruptions under way. I still have not rented from them. Looking for a car in Ft. Lauderdale at end of April and I am not seeing any deals from them. If you know of any current promos let me know. And if you need a referral email me, gracias!
Interesting post that may be helpful to a few of you. Ways to move miles from one airline to another (Points.com and other methods). Yeah, points.com conversion ratios are highway robbery. But it could come handy in desperate situations I guess. There is so much to learn in this hobby it is…beyond ridiculous sometimes.
Well, this Norwegian airline is making waves for real. Did you know it has a loyalty program? Its name: Norwegian Reward. Head For Points has looked into it, not that great but hey, if you are going to fly them… #maximizeit!

For personal finance, something more esoteric and more attuned to this hobby. Found me a link to the latest Monthly Complaint Report by the CFPB. Among its findings, the most important was this with the most complaints about credit cards. In order from top to bottom, we have the bank and total complaints (page 19) to understand the scale of it all…
Capital One 12,074
JPMorgan Chase 9,614
Synchrony Financial 8,044
Bank of America 8,518
Wells Fargo 3,738
Barclays PLC 3,163
US Bancorp 2,238
TD Bank 1,182

Big Skies in the High Kyrgyz Pamir. I like places with no Hyatt in sight, get away from it all…

I finally got my #1 fan, lifetime TBB troll, Ingy to come out, posting with the handle “You’re a moron”, so so clever #nope. Every time you click on my links, this guy is hurting #letsdothis!
Where I am coming from, one more time.
I will have a Saturday and Sunday post this weekend. On Saturday I will be asking for your help, especially from readers residing in the Bay area. We will be visiting for sure this summer! And on Sunday is another edition of the three links I love. I have four so far, one is an amazing story (involves dildos lol).
I just drop this here, for the record. THIS is what credit card pimping is all about. I guess I have no integrity for posting daily for 4.5 years instead of doing what they do… WTF! Can you imagine what these guys will do if I did what the blogs below do? They’ll flip and accuse me of having no integrity and selling…again LOL!
And I leave you with this…
