Well, since we have been following the mind-numbing media free for all of The Hobby lately, here is another take on FREE travel and the Rolling Stone article appearing at the Huffington Post: “Another False Rolling Stone Magazine”. I think the allegations “I don’t stand for free travel” blah blah blah are a bunch of weak BS. If not, nobody would get hooked on this and the media pumping it as, well, FREE travel. The damage to this little weird hobby can not be measured, it is vast and the consequences severe!
Come to think of it, Personal Finance Digest has some thoughts on that amazing superb old credit card: Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. It’s a new landscape folks…We love it when readers fight back against the 36 plastic affiliate links in a single post blog world and help out the smaller blogs who feel dirty even mentioning their own crappy creditcard dot bomb link/banner #hint
I have had a few readers apply with my links for a credit card who let me know about it. But no credit has appeared. What can blog readers do to ensure the credit goes to the blogger intended for? We have learned that some cookies may exist if readers have applied at a different blog that may still be valid for crediting up to a certain point…It is confusing as hell and I just have this conspirational tendency to think I am getting screwed. And I have the proof now, what to do?
If you have any advice on this, please let me know. Oh, Matt of Saverocity let me know on Twitter that Credit Karma is shutting down the affiliate side of their business, hmmm….
