An introduction to Timeshare Offers. This is a good intro to this topic. I used to do these frequently. I had a system. After about ten minutes of pretending we were interested, I would talk to the sales person and be upfront that we were there for the miles or points and we are not going to buy and we don’t really want to waste his/her time. Never had a problem, they were appreciative, we got what we were there for and everyone was happy. But one Hilton presentation offer in Orlando a few years ago was a very traumatic experience: As in took way longer than promised and we did not get what we wanted. Mrs. TBB said No Mas! So, we are done. Good luck to all.
Many of you may have gotten the Avianca LifeMiles credit card so this post is for you then: How to Search & Book an Avianca LifeMiles Award Ticket.
When I was a kid, I almost drowned once. And it looked like the short video in this link I am sure: Drowning Doesn’t Look Like Drowning. Take a moment to watch it, it may save a life!

Your personal finance fix of the day: A Dozen Lessons on Finance and Business from Ambrose Bierce. Must read imho. It combines personal finance and humor, two of my favorite things!
- “PLAN, v.t. To bother about the best method of accomplishing an accidental result.”
A girl has brought her fiancé home for dinner. After dinner, the fiancé and the girl’s father go into the study for a man to man talk. “So, what are you doing right now?” asks the father. “I am a theology scholar,” replies the fiancé. “Do you have any plans of employment?” “I will study and God will provide.” “What about the children?” asks the man. “God will provide.” “And your house and car?” “Again, God will provide,” says the fiancé. After the talk, the girl’s mother asks the father, “So what did you two talk about?” The man replies, “He has no plans of employment, but on the other hand, he thinks I’m God.”

I usually have so much material to post on Monday. But this was the slowest weekend in the miles and points blogosphere that I can remember in a long time. Or maybe Mother’s Day celebrations contributed to it. But lately, talk about an industry with so many blogs writing the same things. Over and over.
I bring you the weekend edition of clickbait and of course pushing product for the banks as usual #yawn
Hope you did not click on the Frugal Travel Guy post about the best travel rewards credit card. Of course it is the Chase Sapphire Preferred card. It just happens to have a really high sales commission. Coincidence? Nope!
I hope one day I get to see, in yet another post that goes “My top XX reasons I love the _____ credit card”, as one of the reasons: The Sales Commission It Earns Me! Yeah, I doubt it as it will not help increase sales/conversions.
Can these two finally move on their separate ways? Must be a bitch still having to push credit cards like this!
