Well, the latest IHG Rewards Pointbreaks list is out. As usual, the 5,000 points per night hotels stink in general. But you may find some ones you like at 10,000 or 15,000 points per night. I doubt the three Intercontinentals lasted more than a few hours, sad! Here are some ideas for the latest list.

Over at Milenomics, Brandon returns with Ray asking a newbie question how to use his 85,000 Amex Membership Rewards points.

two four credit card conversions here this month, hitting ten is a fantasy. When my site loses those links it will not only make minimum wage per hour but it will have a hard time even making prison labor per hour. And it will evolve in a different way. Hint: Forget me doing posts like this! Maybe I do the Sunday Best of Web posts only and then move on #evolving
Thanks for the nice emails and your kind words. But instead of “please keep blogging’ it would be easier to evolve downwards if I got one with “your blog sucks” in the headline instead! 🙂
Just deleted another email to get affiliate links by some visa service company. “We’ve done the math: based on how your blog posts on visas display on Google, you can be making several thousands of dollars a month just in affiliate sales. Our top affiliates earn several thousands of dollars a month.” Yikes!
And I leave you with this…Lets play guess the airline 🙂
