A good review of the Andaz Mayakoba Resort Riviera. By Bengazi Miles Guru. Why has he slowed down lately? With both him and Amol writing less, Travel Codex is just not the same…
How much legroom you get on America’s airlines. Pretty sad…
Accor Hotels gave its luxury brands its own CEO. He will be responsible for overseeing the development of six Accor flags: Sofitel, Fairmont, Raffles, Pullman, Swissôtel, and MGallery. He has been on record wanting to ensure the luxury brands “keep their unique identities”. Here I am hoping my cherished lifetime Fairmont Platinum Presidents Club status survives somehow…If you are interested in the luxury hotel experience and the role personalization and service play, this is a great read.
The most captivating infographics of the last century. Much better than beating you up repeatedly trying to sell you the Ritz Carlton credit card!
Snowboard Flying With a Drone. Phucking A. I would rather watch this than some stupid incident aboard a plane…
Your personal finance fix of the day: How Not To Invest. This is a gem.
Again, the lesson for the individual investor is this: If you are investing in a target date fund, figure out what’s in it, and figure out if you can make essentially the same investments more cheaply. And the lesson for society is this: Even when the products are basically pretty simple (U.S. stock funds), companies will manufacture complexity and barriers to entry in an effort to boost prices well above marginal cost. That’s how the economy works—not the way you learn on the Economics 101 blackboard.
The very best drone photography of 2016. Love them drones!
Before and after photos of Aleppo are heartbreaking. These are posted in the Facebook page of a Syrian restaurant in the city. So tragic.
What a dickhead looks like…in the deep sea! “…the male fish slyly sporting a retractable sex organ on its forehead.”
Not sure if you noticed how so many bloggers are hiring writers for their blogs so they can free up their time to devote to
write better content marketing & selling credit cards more effectively. Just yesterday the Points With a Crew announced the hiring of THREE writers, wow!
When I went to FinCon16, a conference for personal finance bloggers, I discovered there is a LOT of ghost writing in the personal finance blog space and I am sure the same goes along in the miles points blog space too. The Titans are prolific in doing that of course. Maybe this is why they are commercially successful. This is what happens when this becomes a business.
Having said that, I may ask for some help here soon with tax season coming up and prospects continuing to call me. But, you see, my standards are high and I want good stuff, not filler crap! You can email me if interested though and can’t wait. Just imagine how good it will look on your resume!
And I leave you with this…Just love this, so TBBish! (HT: PointsForLater)
