It’s Chase Sapphire Preferred Week at Personal Finance Digest, woohoo! So exciting, I mean, isn’t it always exciting when CSP is mentioned? You won’t believe the excitement when each CSP card is sold! Get me excited you guys too lol. Actually thinking about getting my wife to excite me by…applying for the CSP card (long shot…need to check her app history lol).
You know the end is near when even mainstream media like the Los Angeles Times get it: “Delta Air Lines to alter reward program; other airlines may follow“. May? Apparently they are also doing some phony upgrade stuff for the executives’ families, something about upgrading to personal jets or something…yeah right…spare me the BS por favor!
It looks like the national embarrassment of an airport at La Guardia may be no more. That’s great news…we shall see what happens!
Some great thoughts and nice chart of the “Dilemma of the Free Annual Hotel Nights” by Running with Miles.
And the news you have been waiting for…The Best Western Debuts New Credit Cards. By First Bankcard, a division of First National Bank of Omaha. Hey, wait a minute, isn’t that the bank that used to give away an ugly teddy bear as a signing bonus for some other rewards card I can’t even remember. Correction: Doctor of Credit let me know in the comments that these have been out since late April, oopsie! And I had even linked to his card review back then. Man, I must be losing it. Is it age or just too much time pumping 35 affiliate links in a single post or something LOL

For Frederick Weis, Knick’s Infamous Pick, Boos Began a Greater Struggle via The New York Times. As an NBA fan this was a fascinating article on this guy. What a story, mostly sad. Amazing how life turns out sometimes. Then again, not sure it was as infamous as Joe Dumars picking Darko Milicic WTF!
