Just a reminder: American Express Hilton Cards – 80k / 100k + Free Night (Expires May 31). Available here, no arrows!
I have slowed down on earning miles and points from credit cards. I am being very strategic as I try to get my miles/points balances under 3 million. Hey, it is hard hehe! I will go for the Amex Blue Business Plus no annual fee credit card soon too, Mrs. TBB was instantly approved last week. With my links of course, I ‘ll give her a bonus lol. The card is a no brainer IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING! No annual fee, 2 Amex Membership Rewards points for EVERY dollar up to $50k spend and it does NOT count for Chase Bank’s 5/24 count #winning.
All major hotel promotions for the summer HERE.
Top 10 Lonely Planet European Destinations. Interesting places. But Leeds, UK, seriously?
Drone above Norway’s Seven Sisters Waterfall. Breathtaking. Wow!
Sometimes you shake your head in WTFitis mode: Angry gentleman plows into Moonlite Bunny Ranch with 18-wheeler while women sleeping. I wonder what happened…
TBB likes drones a lot…Dronescapes.
Lets go to Ghardaia, Algeria. Off the beaten path indeed!
The cheapest countries to drink around the world. Always an interesting topic in TBBland!
This section is for advanced level hobbyists and veteran blog readers & personal rants & stuff
I had never heard of such retention offer on the Amex Platinum card! a $350 statement credit or 50,000 Membership Rewards points – with no spending requirement
When news come about the laptop ban I will post a link here from a true expert source. Save yourselves from the numerous posts pondering and spreading rumors, they do it because…they…have…nothing…else…to…blog…about. Plus it gives them a break before the next credit card pumping post!
When Points, Miles & Martinis posts yet another targeted “deal”, make no mistake, the target is always YOU! This blog will certainly move up in the infamous Blogs To Ignore list…next time I get around to it, be patient.
I have 10 of the 13 nights booked (with points or free night certs) of our upcoming vacation to the San Francisco area. Time to work on it some more. So, getting in to SFO late at night so I am going to book an airport hotel and then head to the city next morning. I am down to the Four Points by Sheraton SFO for 10,000 SPG points or the Hyatt Regency SFO for 12,000 Hyatt points. SPG points are precious and could be used elsewhere, I have plenty of Chase Ultimate Rewards points to transfer to Hyatt so I am leaning towards this route. Comments? After this one, still need to do two nights in the city and of course the car rental #developing.
Bloggers hard at work showing readers how to travel for free selling credit cards #neverstops
When a blogger says “Last chance” it is almost certain…it is not!
I was going to work on looking into what it takes to set up a membership thingie but…instead spent a lot of time with the familia, biking, eating and drinking. And also finished the last installment of the Asia Summer Trip report at last, coming soooooonn!
Reader emailed me an idea to help me with monetizing. Offer Blogs on the Ignore list a way out of that list for a price. I hope he was kidding. I did not find it funny. But I do appreciate the suggestion for help. Just not my thing. Fine, make me an offer TPG! Bwahahahaha.
And I leave you with this…
