It was such a slow day in the miles and points blog space…So much in fact that I don’t have that much for you. So, lets cover more important things, shall we?
How to fly to Argentina with miles (Award charts for Chase, Amex, Citi Points). This was a late addition to this post. Thankfully we got a good one about our hobby!
That Norwegian Air keeps expanding, I am impressed. Norwegian to Link Austin and Chicago with London, Boston and Oakland with Paris.
Looks like United is relenting on the brute elements of Basic Economy fares. Just some of the, BE is not going anywhere.
I saw son using Lyft with his Chase debit card. WTF! Where have I failed as a parent? I sent him detailed instructions to use his Chase Sapphire Preferred card AND get Delta miles, see this page to link the accounts.
A reader’s amazing trip report: Around the World in 90 Days. Lots of luxury airline and hotels involved, very familiar to us travel hackers 🙂 What great family memories! Click on “Older posts” at the bottom to keep going in reverse…
So, a university professor gets a job at TSA to see how it is like and possibly work on a book. I found it to be a fascinating look at what goes on inside this agency.
The Museum of Capitalism is now open. “Visitors are invited to reflect on capitalism as if they resided in a post-capitalist era.”. Location? Oakland, California. Aha, you would say. That’s what I said 🙂 I must say the video was a bit boring until it showed bricks made up of credit card offer literature. For a fraction of a second, I think I saw a 150,00 Amex Platinum offer hehe.
How Apple’s iPhone changed the world: 10 years in 10 charts. My wife and daughter are in love with their iPhones, sometimes I feel neglected. So, I focus on my Samsung Note 5. That was a joke. I think 🙂
For some reason my blog has become the go to source for all news about sex robots. I have no doubt that someone over at The Points Guy or Million Mile Secrets has a draft blog post ready to go titled “The best credit cards to use to buy a sex robot”. Ok, I am laughing. My blog is primarily entertainment for me lol. But this one is a serious post: A new report showed all the different ways that sex robots could be used in society. A robot now has a “frigid” setting, WTF! And a self -confessed pedophile guy is now making child look-alike sex dolls. Where? In Japan, not shocked! WTF to infinity!
One of my favorite personal finance blogs finally did a post on this: “Some Thoughts on the Extreme Early Retirement Movement“. I share the same feelings! I better stop before I get too angry…as I am nowhere near done with this blog. Maybe some other time I can unload!
I know I post a lot of these lately but they are always soooo good! Best Photos From 2017 National Geographic Traveler Contest’s Nature Category.
I remember this in the news years ago when this family was discovered in Siberia. Now there is one left and she is 72. Talk about a hard life…STFU about your pre-departure drink being late! I just had to throw that one out, it made me feel better 🙂 What an amazing story, wow!
Chances of dying unnaturally. All right then, stop worrying about that asteroid!
This section is for advanced level hobbyists and veteran blog readers & personal rants & stuff
I finally update the Disclosures page of my site. Being as transparent as ever! Please let me know how I can improve it.
Thanks for the donations and choosing to use my credit card links, you know who you are. You have no idea how much this is appreciated.
If you want to be matched to Choice Hotels elite you can.
I am starting to think that this TBB-Ingy thing is a love hate relationship. Started out all love but…
And I leave you with this…Now this is a hotel I will go out of my way to get matched to Platinum and take advantage of Late Checkout woohoo!
