We have reached the of the CSR 100k Bonus Online, some bad travel hacking habits to avoid, be aware of bank bans, do Ganja Yoga, visit North Korea, watch an awesome storm video, revisit the JFK renovation plans, talk about bloggers as usual by calling them out, filter BS for you so you get educated, laugh a little, even get inspired rarely & more!

The level of Chase Sapphire Reserve selling pumping went off the charts yesterday! I felt sick to my stomach and I just blocked all this shit out. You know why they do it? Because it works! So, the only solution is to stop clicking on these guys, it only makes them pump more! I have more on that below in the BLOG BUZZ section.
This travel hacking has been changing dramatically over the last several years. Which also changes many of our habits. Many of them have become bad habits. I agree with these bad habits the Deal Mommy is ditching! I ditched them a long time ago, we all evolve. I agree with her advice except #4, the “Less Blogs” part I mean, this is what I do for you here 🙂
The New York Times had an interesting “52 Places To Go in 2017” and Rapid Travel Chai added his own commentary to it.
The Cranky Flier has his own take on the plan to fix JFK. We need more runways and public transit, hello?
This is it, I am telling you. This is going to be yuge! “Ganja Yoga” baby! Only in San Francisco, hit me! Class afterwards goes on a shuttle bus tour to several taco and pizza eating establishments #munchies. Oh, and you can use the ____________ credit card (insert the one with the highest sales commission!) #rolleyes
Haunting 4k timelapse compilation video of storms in black and white. I am out of wow’s! Imagine showing this video during Ganja Yoga class lol.
Personal finance post, this one for the millennial TBB readers: Millennials may need to double how much they save for retirement. Don’t hateme.
Here we go again with my North Korea obsession. These are amazing: 3D Hypnotic Photos of the secretive state.
Look at this cloud formation, wow!
This section is for advanced hobbyists, people who think miles/points 24/7 and just hopeless cases…
I stayed away from the hideous pumping of the CSR card in its final day for the 100k signup bonus (online only). I just felt awful seeing these desperate greedy headlines, thanks to PointsCentric who collected some of these misleading whorish headlines!
Reader Sam alerted me to one of the most hideous aspects of increasing traffic to a site. Award Wallet is now paying AA miles for comments. First, I am NOT going there! To offer miles for comments is a desperate move, isn’t it? Ever since that Howie dude was hired at Award Wallet the site has been getting so pumpy, oh my God! I guess that experience at Frugal Travel Guy shows. Maybe these guys spend so much time trying to monetize their readers that maybe, I don’t know, are not as attentive to security? Please do NOT waste your time, THINK! As we like to promote good blogging practices around here, how about some good reading practices from YOU too!
Oh, is there any other alternative to Award Wallet?
MUST Read: Cumulative list of bank and credit card bans. From the master closer, Miles Per Day!
Doctor of Credit demolishes the Barclaycard Arrival + card. I am sure bloggers who sell the card do not make this type of argument lol.
A comprehensive post about all things coming from First National Bank of Omaha (think such sizzling cards like the ones from Best Western, ANA, La Quinta, etc.).
Alaska Airlines updates its award charts and there goes all Aeromexico awards, thanks bloggers!
The Nationwide Visa Buxx is dead as of February 28.
I can’t believe View From The Wing did it again. Hey look the Korean Airlines is gone from the Chase Ultimate Rewards transfer partners list omg! And then another post saying it came back, wow! Both posts had how many affiliate credit card links? “It’s all about conversions” an old marketer once said. I don’t do this BS type posts here, I.Just.Can’t.
Thanks for all the support. The CSR clicks with my link have been great. I trust you know what you are doing and you will end up winning against the bank! 🙂
And I leave you with this…
