Dear readers, I have been saving all these links below to feature here and I am leaning towards more making TBB a once or twice a week must read post that will keep you busy…until the next weekly post that is. In the meantime I may be bringing you filler posts haha. Just kidding but not really. I am amidst of an incredible busy stretch in my real job and I just need to get my act together so the quality of what I do does not diminish…It’s a work in progress, evolving non stop. Thanks for all the support.
Club Carlson Visa dumping Bonus Award Nights – Frequent Miler This blog broke this story with one of the most anticipated and still horrific devaluations in recent times. Frankly, I have no idea how this benefit lasted so long! The streak of mega devaluations and deals being killed continues at a frenetic pace and I must admit I wonder how much longer this hobby can be, how shall I put this, umm, “worth it”. After this benefit is gone, it exposes Club Carlson to what it really is…a mediocre program a class above Wyndham…oh wait, not sure about that too lately. Dang it, all these Club Carlson points I have, along with many others just sitting there getting devalued #facepalm
Citibank retail credit cards: a brief guide – Personal Finance Digest Interesting run down of the Citibank retail cards…Most of these don’t get a lot of play from the plastic selling “travel” bloggers who prefer to sell cards that pay them the most commissions. And these are not it of course!
Another Do appropriately titled ResellingDO. Hey it ends with beer at a brewery, hooray! TBB endorses it because he can tell who is a true hobbyist and who is masquerading as an “expert” while smoothly pumping credit cards at their sites (think FTU and Titan speakers, cough).
My Retention Bonus Offers & Lessons Learned – Doctor of Credit Great feedback on retention offers, schedule some time to chat on the phone with a hopefully nice agent. I would do that too if I spent less time bringing you this amazing blog with my Alexa flirting spectacular content lol.
BigCrumbs/MainStreetShares’ CEO Posts Comment on this Blog – Will Run For Miles After the Big Crumbs MLM ponzi scheme like (my opinion!) “sudden” death, the same people have the balls to start another MLMish scheme (my opinion!) to get you to keep bugging your friends to sign them up under your wing. I mean, suckers are born every minute I guess and at the end the ones really smiling are the ones running the scheme and the few early entrants into it. Barf! I apologize to all for having this in my referral links (now gone). You should read HikerT’s comments.
