We bring you news of another United devaluation, how to get into Hyatt Miraval, visit Canadian lakes, how Americans love credit cards, talk about mouse penises, visit Hattusa, ride jets with our pets, shake our heads violently with a pathetic pump piece on The
Points Chase Cards Guy and more!

That devaluing sinking feeling of our hobby continues…United was next. No worries, your favorite bloggers will stay very enthusiastic telling you how great everything is and how much you can enjoy traveling for “free” if only you would apply credit cards from them!
You need to visit these 10 awesome lakes in Canada. Did I say I love Lake Louise yet?
Dog strolls onto stage during performance. Must have been a long day in the office, lol!
That Time the TSA Found a Scientist’s 3-D-Printed Mouse Penis. This is hilarious. Looking at you Alan H lol.
What is this?
“Do you need to know or do you want to know?” said Cohn.
I’m curious, she replied.
“It’s a 3-D print-out of an adult mouse penis.”
“A 3-D print-out of an adult mouse penis.”
Oh no it isn’t.
The officer called over three of her colleagues and asked them to guess what it is. No one said anything, so Cohn told them. They fell apart laughing.
There is a lot MORE in the article, enjoy!
I have been around the financial planning industry for a while. To the point where I have a hard time finding anything interesting or completely new I have not heard before. But this I learned and was just amazed I did not know about it. Very limited application in a situation you do not wish to be in but still…I did not know about it! Military benefit allows widows to put $500K into Roth IRA at once.
Americans love their credit cards. And it is because of the travel rewards! Ok, that’s good with me as I know what I am doing. But then you read “Americans have racked up $1.01 trillion in revolving debt — primarily credit card debt” and you know things are not as rosy for these people.
Private jet company Victor has now added a “furs class” for your entitled pets. And wait, there is more. They have also added a a luxury hotel stay complete with a three-course Michelin-starred dinner for your entitled doggy while you are probably in a banging vacation. I could have made this a single blog post when I first found it if I also had a ghost writer on the payroll 🙂
Hattusa: The Ancient Capital of the Hittites. You almost never hear about this place in Turkey. The pic below was the city in its peak, not much left these days…
This section is for advanced level hobbyists and veteran blog readers & personal rants & stuff
The Barclaycard Wyndham credit card offers have increased again. 45k and 18k points. Could work for some of you.
I was determined to NOT blog today. I just felt deflated after this comment. You know, it is pretty deflating to check what this site has earned and seeing 57 cents from June 12 to June 27. I mean, come on now! And then to get a comment like that by a long time reader made me feel really really bad. So, I announced no blog post to show you that I don’t like to be deflated (sounds like a Ramones song, oh wait, their song was about being sedated). Well, guess what, the longest no click streak is over baby at last! Thank you to the person who got the Chase Sapphire Preferred card with my links, it was credited on June 28. So, you all thank this person as this post is dedicated to him/her.
Has anyone upgraded Paypal account from personal to business? I am thinking of doing that to add a Donate button and have it go to TBB LLC instead of me…It just makes me feel better I guess.
I am starting to act as childish as Trump. But I never treat the ladies the way he does, looking at you Mika.
Thanks to reader jettyboy who shared this god awful article about The Points Guy at, please sit down, the New Yorker. I had respect for that publication. But not much after this. I have not seen such a crappy article in a long time. The writer clearly is clueless and falls for some basic shit…like he makes a “nominal fee’ every time someone clicks and gets approved for a travel rewards card on his site. Nominal my ass! And every “trick” she talks about…some of us were doing before this dude was even born. Has he ever published anything selling a card that does not make him money? I did not think so. Credibility my ass (Warning by Management: This is a second reference to TBB’s ass…when you see it for a third time….it only means he is really angry then!). I am sure he feels so so bad about all that. At least the story stated his site was sold in 2012. And she even mentions the (nicely hidden) disclosures….This is what Trump refers to…fake news. Just an embarrassing job, sad! I must admit I barfed all over myself and had to move up laundry day, so unfair!
Don’t get angry, get even!
And I leave you with this…
