The new IHG Rewards promotion is out, it is called Accelerate. You might as well check out your own offer and register for it. Both of our offers required five night stays which isn’t going to happen most likely. I foresee another debacle with this one as in the past two promos. In my offer the points did not even add up and the offer numberings did not even make sense, WTF IHG, get it together! Good luck to all who have the patience to call IHG call support #yikes You can see some other offers at the Loyalty Lobby and it appears the new members are getting some REALLY great offers!
How to make your loyalty program more evil at Personal Finance Digest. Loved it! Our species is under attack, fight back!
Excellent information about the American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts (FHR) at TravelZork.
Success! Mrs. TBB is a quick learner. She managed to book herself and daughter one way to Singapore on Business Class using SkyMiles at 70k each and then, please sit down, she got on a roll and managed to book the return flying Korean Air out of Kuala Lumpur for 40k each. 220,000 Skymiles out of her account leaving her with about 21,000, hooray! She was going to raid daughter’s account to book them on Business but felt bad as that account has exactly 160,000 saved for her trip to Australia with me which is likely not happening with the Virgin Australia latest developments…I knew she had potential, award booking service next hehe. So happy to get rid of this Skyshit 🙂

Well, it was quite a day in the stock market on Monday followed by another doozy one on Friday. Sorry I could not get to all the comments and emails, I was a little busy you know. At times like these we financial planners earn our living, it was way too easy for so long everyone got complacent. I don’t want to get into details, this is a travel blog! Just remember, nobody knows and everyone has opinions. Turn the crap off, it can mess with your head. Go have a latte or, if you are really distraught, take it out on my affiliate links as I went to Taco Bell instead of having sushi last night. Darn you Mr. Market lol.

Blogging can be insanely time consuming sometimes. Help bloggers you appreciate & make a positive difference in your life by spreading the word about their blogs, emailing and commenting and using their few $$ links. Thank you.
