How to Use Amtrak Guest Rewards Points. This is what quality content is all about. Stop reading crap from
bloggers bank sales representatives! I had no idea that you can get your car aboard a train. We loved the sleeping car aboard the Southwest Chief train rolling across America and then on the Coast Starlight train from Los Angeles to Seattle!
World of Hyatt – The Facts. Just the facts, straight to the point! And now the opinion about the World of Hyatt. My opinion? I will stay in a Hyatt for free, why not? 🙂
65 Hilton Properties for just 5,000 Hilton Honor points each. Now that’s a deal, Turkey anyone?
Trump continues to kill American tourism jobs. Emirates is forced to cut US flights 🙂 How could bloggers sell more credit cards with even less capacity for those swanky First Class seats huh?
Hey United? Perhaps you picked the wrong time to expand Basic Economy fares! Amazing how the 25k round trip award domestic trip has survived. But I think the next hammer to fall is when, instead of raising the miles required, they make them only eligible for Basic Economy fares… #crying.
A new Category 4 Hyatt Regency opened in Amsterdam. It has to be one of the best uses of the free Hyatt Visa night<—–insert imaginary direct affiliate link. Actually, this card IS available with my links now. That dude BestOffersPatrol is slow updating the TBB card list #hint.
Great news! That Trivago creepy guy is gone, yes!
Did you know that Iran is the only Muslim country to give transgender citizens the right to have their gender identity recognized by law? You do now. Very surprising.
Eleven celebrities on how they spend their money. Actually, very educational.
Since we mentioned Amsterdam, who needs it? Where is marijuana legal? Now if they can invent one strain that does not make you hungry and attack Doritos that will be great.
What it is like riding North Korea’s subway. The guy quoted near the end of the article was in my Iran tour, he has been to North Korea three times!
This section is for advanced level hobbyists and veteran blog readers & personal rants & stuff
Amassing Membership Rewards. It’s tough. I keep them until forced to use them 🙂
If this is not a bank sales representative job, I don’t know what is! Click on the table to freak out better. Bloggers were never excited before about the Hyatt card as they are now because…they now get paid to sell it! The excitement for the British Airways Visa never went down…you see, a 100k bonus always sells! And you know these must be desperate times when…you see Mommy Points now selling 0% APR credit cards #sick.
They say I am unfair towards The Points Guy, really? “Worth every cent” to him for sure!
The Points Guy is all about The Hobby lol, now hiring Growth Strategist and Analyst!

I think the ghost of ScottCastle bot caused some wordpress errors this morning when I tried to be first comment…
Hmmm, TBBMedalsCommittee in session drafting rules and procedures about “Anonymous” comments…
Tough discussion, reverting to drinking, thank you Trader Joes for your cheap wine!
Nick @ Personal Finance Digest says
George, I recently discovered the Reverse Wine Snob blog. Their Trader Joe recommendations have been good:
Under new Turkish dictator, you are not allowed to post with your name.
Have gotten several takes on him. Two things not reported widely by western media. First is that secularism was so codified by Attatürk that (Muslim) women wearing the hijab were not allowed to go to university wearing it. Erdoğan has many Muslim supporters from issues like this. Second is how Erdoğan has made healthcare cheap, convenient, and accessible. Make an appt online, usually kept within 5 minutes.
I was asked if I would’ve voted Obama more power when the Reps were clogging the system for 8 years straight. I thought that was a good question.
Very interesting about the healthcare points.
Once upon a time there was an amazing bot here…
Gone are the days.

With more than 700 likes, Chase, Citi and AMEX can’t ask for a better sales agent.
700 likes…Wow…so many sheep out there!
Thanks to the reader who go the Marriott card, TBB has hit the minimum for the month avoiding a 3 month undertheminimum streak, hooray!
Take that trolls!
Big thanks to BestOffersPatrol!
One Mile at a Time is out pumping like there is no tomorrow today. Cash balance must be running low. Desperation?

I swear to all mighty, no blogger has pumped this card than ever before in the history of miles and points, WOW!

Liars….#1 reason NEVER stated is the BEST sales commission earned! Oh, and the CSR “link” leads to another blog post, not the actual card…as he does not get paid for it. Of course, helping readers apply for it thru a direct public link is just way too much to ask.
Yeah, troll me for being such a pumping bitch hey? smh
In the latest MMS’ post, Emily’s lipstick shade does not quite match the “Costco card red” shade of the card she is holding. They are slipping, I tell you…
Sad Clown Blue says
the most insane part of your comment is you still reading mms
Hey, some of us may want to be entertained.
And there is always Feedly, no clicks.
Did you catch D.’s post about empathy and bullshit like that with the only pic included was the one of…Mother Theresa? LOL.
Not sure if that was a dig against Emily or what.
I swear the dude will come up with a Chopra like mediation/yoga type scheme soon…
And, phucking A, there must be a sale on that Citi Prestige card AGAIN!
your entertainment is reading mms? damn you have a low bar and too much time on your hands.
Hey, we need stuff for the Blog Buzz section!
I only read it while in the toilet though lol…and always in Feedly!
Actually I don’t read it…I just check out Emily!
Emily’s mom is so hot!
all right, blog post is scheduled for tomorrow…
why do I still do this?
Because I like it 🙂
I miss you Ramsey, please come back. Just don’t go off on other people because they do this deliberately to…get under your skin. You do not have to respond in a way to get them under their skin because…that is what they want you to do!
And ignore the obvious trolls, they live a sad life, so sad.
That Greek Freak Giannis is taking the NBA by storm, WOW!
That was me, TBBTheDude!
wait you actually think ramsey the psycho is a victim here? you’re such a fucking loser george. it’s getting worse.
