These two posts may come in handy for you: When do Marriott Rewards points expire and how to stop it. And since we are at it, lets get this one out there too: When your Starwood Preferred Guest points expire, and how to stop it. After SPG dies…there will be a void out there, sad!
This is a good comprehensive post laying out all the pros for each card: What is the Best Credit Card for Every Day Spending? Of course, there is none, it all depends on the individual…And, of course, if you know what you are doing and can handle it…please come back here and get a card with my links, thank you! As a reminder, if you are carrying credit card balances or asking what is the interest rate on a card, this hobby is NOT for you, get your house in order FIRST!
Maybe I should help teach this college course titled “Calling Bullshit“. LOVE IT!
…we feel that the world has become over-saturated with bullshit and we’re sick of it. However modest, this course is our attempt to fight back.
We have a civic motivation as well. It’s not a matter of left- or right-wing ideology; both sides of the aisle have proven themselves facile at creating and spreading bullshit. Rather (and at the risk of grandiose language) adequate bullshit detection strikes us as essential to the survival of liberal democracy. Democracy has always relied on a critically-thinking electorate, but never has this been more important than in the current age of false news and international interference in the electoral process via propaganda disseminated over social media.
Bullshit is language, statistical figures, data graphics, and other forms of presentation intended to persuade by impressing and overwhelming a reader or listener, with a blatant disregard for truth and logical coherence.
We are being drowned by bullshit out there! Charlatan bloggers without any meaningful experience in this unique miles and points hobby discover the money that can be earned selling credit cards and suddenly start blogging bullshit how they can travel for free (bullshit!) to help “family and friends”….If I had a nickel for…Never mind. RESIST BULLSHIT!
What are the largest cities by US population? Interesting list. But the eye catching stat was this one imho. The cities with 100,000 population but have since gone below that number and the % loss, wow!
Canton, Ohio (-39%)
Gary, Indiana (-59%)
Scranton, Penn (-46%)
Flint, Michigan (-50%)
Erie, Penn (-29%)
Utica, NY (-40%)
I had no idea that there was a prison museum in my back yard. What a unique experience this is! Too bad no photos are allowed though, can you imagine the selfies in a jail cell? Michigan’s Prison Museum.
This Instagram account has photos of signs in…Tehran, Iran. Pretty cool stuff!
Amazing Uzbekistan. Wow, what amazing photos here!
This section is for advanced level hobbyists and veteran blog readers & personal rants & stuff
I celebrated Father’s Day in the Texas de Brazil restaurant in Detroit with lamb, baaaaa. Right after that I entered lamb coma…
I love comments like this, thank you Chris.
These blogs exist to sell credit cards. To readers who don’t know much better. 24/7 365. Is it criticism from a blog that, you know, is an industry blog critic when you state facts? 🙂
Clicks have gone silent. But I hit the card sales quote a week ago so it is okay. Oh shoot, that reminds me I need to finish that minimum spend for my own Amex Business Blue Plus card too. I pull it out for non bonus spend almost every time now, I need to kill a few more cards to lower the mental bandwidth it takes to carry them. Need to focus, focus, focus and keep letting go of marginal use/benefit cards. Next one up that Amex Blue Cash card, those old bang days with it are not coming back, sad!
And I leave you with this…When you sneak in a CSP link in a post totally unrelated to your main point…because…$ sales commissions, looking at you Titans!
