Today it is Saturday. And you are seeing a new post here. Which is a FIRST in a very long time!
Why? Well, I have built a lengthy backlog and I should shorten it a little bit. This will knock off some miles and points posts before having to wait until Monday. This is how I roll 🙂
No worries, I will try to keep it short okay? So you can leave your computer/phone/tablet/ and go enjoy the outdoors! But before you do, why don’t you click on my links?…Okay, I am laughing, I could not resist!
The hobby starts here: The Top 25 Credit Cards by MileNerd. What are we going to do when he stops blogging at the end of the year? Probably the only true non sell out. Unlike me who gave in to such vicious pumping of my affiliate links. Okay, that was funny too. The wine I had, I swear, had absolutely nothing to do with this!
Register for this Hyatt promo if you think you can swing it. Stay 5 nights at Grand Hyatt and Hyatt Regency hotels. Earn 2,500 Bonus Points now through August 31.
At least Hyatt is listening a little bit and continues to make amends for the awful World of Hyatt rollout. Award Expiration Dates Extended! I understand the changes, you know, were business decisions. The days of us free loading on bennies with these programs are mostly over or ending soon. But the one thing that this program desperately needs is…to scrap the stupid Elite names. WHAT THE HELL….Globalist??? I mean, I just can not resist making fun of these names you guys 😉
As I said, it is getting harder out there. Why Chase shutdowns have increased and how to avoid them.
Actually Chase is making the United MileagePlus Explorer card a decent card now imho. The loss of the 10k miles for $25k spend definitely hurts but adding 2x categories (hotels and restarants) is a very welcome development as pure airlines cards have sucked for a long time!
Again, all the changes coming in the Marriott Rewards and Starwood SPG programs. I wonder what the new name will be, anyone want to guess?
You may get some British Airways Avios miles due to this class action lawsuit settlement: British Airways to pay 2.2 BILLION Avios to settle a US Class Action lawsuit settlement. Nice thing about it is that if you are due a benefit, it will happen automatically and there is NO form to file, hooray!
I am forcing myself to keep this post at no more than 10 links so…you get three more.
Love these photos: Historic Photos of NASA’s Cavernous Wind Tunnels.
These are great! In Charts: How American Household Finances are Changing.
Ok, take a song too! Because, you know, I do not mail it in.
And I leave you with this…Not funny. Inspiring. I look at this just before I schedule every TBB post #notreally
