ON MY MIND
Thank you to the one reader who opened a Capital One Bank online savings account in yesterday’s blog post. Enjoy your free $25 and thanks for clicking on my link ($$$$$), I sure appreciate it! Full disclosure: I earned $20. So, in five months this blog has earned a grand total of $25! Which investment bank should I pick to help with the IPO guys? LOL
Actually, it appears Bank Direct is cutting down on AA miles for checking accounts with more than $50,000 balance. Is this bank having too much money or what? Is it really getting that more expensive buying the AA miles? I see absolutely no reason keeping more than $50k in a BD account any more, boo! View from the Wing has the details here. I referred a colleague a long time ago and in order for BD to give me the 1k AA miles I had to spend a ridiculous amount of time back and forth with them, just fyi.
Next I will try to answer every comment in my blog, thanks for taking the time to comment!
And we move on…
I usually like to update the blog before I get to sleep every night. But around 2 am last night I just could not keep my eyes open…so here it comes to you in the morning! I am now caught up with blogs as of 7.38 am Wednesday!
Question: I will be in Las Vegas most of last week for a conference. Mrs. TBB is joining me for the weekend to celebrate 20th wedding anniversary. There are so many shows. We have seen one Cirque de Soleil show and it was fantastic! I see there are several of them going on in Vegas. Which one is recommended? How can I get deals on tickets? Can I purchase online? Any Vegas specialists here?
