Why You Shouldn’t Apply For The American Express Platinum 40,000 Point Offers – Doctor of Credit That is exactly right. So you newbie applying for the personal version for just 40k points from your favorite blogger you are a…victim no matter how cheerful you are towards your favorite blogger telling them how grateful you are for flying for free. And that is just plain sad. Put the reader FIRST, don’t screw them from 60k points because you don’t tell them how either because you think of your own pocket FIRST or you just don’t know better. Which is also sad as you are portraying yourself as some type of travel expert or guru or whatever. Ok, I better slow down, this is not the Blog Buzz 🙂

READER QUESTIONS: Emirates Delayed Bag, Use Of Hilton’s MVP Rate & Freeloading Wanker? – Loyalty Lobby Okay, this is here for the entertainment factor. Not many choose to respond to reader questions such as “Why are you a freeloading wanker?’ LOL. I would certainly pick a question like “Should I apply for the Amex Platinum or the Chase Sapphire card? 🙂 Anyway, it gets better in the comments when a reader also named John objects to the use of the word “wanker”. And then reader Michael responds with “Nothing wrong with being a ” Wanker”. Most men masturbate, and its safe, free and enjoyable. When I used to work in retail I had a irate customer that called me a wanker numerous times. In the end I admitted I was a Wanker and asked if he would like to know my favorite technique? He ended up apologizing to me and became a regular customer 🙂 “. TBB brings you entertainment, this made me laugh. If you are offended you are definitely reading the wrong blog right now!
