In this hobby there are many ways you can screw up. Watch out when you close credit card accounts and then you find out you are months late in paying the annual fee. Bank of America does that more often than other banks imho.
For a while now Delta and Korean Airlines have been at each other’s throats even as they are both member of the Skyteam alliance. But it appears they will mend their ways. Lets hope so, cooler heads prevailed at last.

12 of the world’s most spectacular train journeys. Very cool, I bookmarked this for the day
Bankrate The Points Guy buys me out woohoo!
We all heard the news that NFL team Oakland Raiders will be moving to Las Vegas. So devastating to the team fans and the city of Oakland…I can not imagine! But…there is hope. Bunny Ranch Owner Plans Raiders-Themed Brothel. Okay, if you are a hardcore (pun intended) team fan you may not find this funny. But I do and it’s my blog and I can do what I want! The name of the brothel will be “Pirate’s Booty”…Ok, if that did not make you laugh yet…how about this? Players and team staff get 50% discount on all sex parties there. Can you get an AMEX offer like that? Nope, I didn’t think so!

You just have two days left to transfer your SPG/Marriott points to Southwest for its Companion Pass. If there was ever a worthy “last chance” headline…this is it!
For the record, I have never used my SPG points other than, gulp, SPG hotel nights! I could cut and paste a post urging you how to get ten nights for free selling you the Amex SPG credit cards, get my wife to pose like a moron holding the credit card I am selling…so I can make some money but I.Just.Can’t. But these bloggers can!<———-notice how they use the phucking exclamation point in their headlines. SellSellSell baby!
Some targeted Chase credit card spending bonuses. Maybe these become more common in the future me thinks.
Oh shit…Amex Platinum signup bonus, the official and affiliate one, goes up to 60,000 Membership Rewards points from the 40,000 one. You know, the one greedy pimping bloggers have been selling to their readers intentionally kept in the dark and converted like sheep! I bet TPG has sold thousands of this plastic…check out the new digs in New York City.
Breaking: We now have the 60k Amex Platinum links! Mercedes-Benz anyone…yeah I am sure the “experts” at TPG will tell you all about them lol.
Reader Alan Z. (stop laughing) sent me a link to this video with the Million Mile Secrets duo giving Valentines Day tips and told me this is on their website. Hmm, don’t know what to make of this. You know, a divorced couple is probably not the one to give these kinds of tips $justsaying #WTF!
Below is a pic (click on it to read it better) with yesterday’s mega plastic pump, each one containing numerous affiliate links! And here I am being accused of being such a hideous pumper myself while not even coming close to hitting double digits for two months in a row and in danger of getting kicked out of this program (while my other revenue source Amazon has gone way down because #JetBlue). Or maybe I like the trolls going nuts more, not sure. Too tired to comment on it, enough time spent on this stuff you guys…
It just hit me. In combination with a reader email that I am wasting my time against the pimping bloggers…realizing how much time I spend in this blog. You know, it’s been like this for a while 🙂 My hope is some newbie reads my warnings and gets it, you know, improving humanity and all. Or maybe I need to find another hobby. Do I just quit the negative stuff cold turkey? Can I even do it? Who will protect the newbies? Do I turn into an ass kissing blogger hoping the big boys link back to me for the clicks? This is my own moronic crusade and, besides, I still find it entertaining as hell…I mean, Valentine tips from a divorced couple, WTF! What do you think? This is not a lame blogger question to invite engagement, it’s a genuine request for feedback.
And I leave you with this…
