|Entering Lysjeford, Norway. I miss it already!
ON MY MIND
I find it unreasonably unfair and harsh that a few readers have been on my back for adding a few referral links of two products I am a faithful user of with proper and full disclosure (with $$$$$) in almost five months of blogging! When others can spend a few minutes per day cutting and pasting along with many more credit card affiliate links DAILY while I labor all day long to pick out stuff you will find worthy. Ok there, I feel better now…
Here is a an article listing all the online banks. I could have “conveniently” added my cha ching link here but I will spare you all the agony:-) I can’t believe there is a “Mile High Bank”…I would not be that confident this bank would be so sharp lol. But if you are going to open a Capital One 360 account please take a look at yesterday’s blog.
Brian Cohen, who writes at the Gate, joined First2Board and now writes What’s Your Point? Wow, I am impressed. I welcome the competition and of course I will be reading as I have always enjoyed Brian’s writings! Come on Brian, produce something so spectacular so I can just quit and get my life back;-)
I can not help but think of yet another Internet Brands connection…
It is a new month and time to get back to say hello to my friendly CVSemployees! I could do more with gift cards but WalMart is a bit out of the way and am afraid to go inside. Maybe later in the month I will find some time to hit some pin enabled gift cards and such. Then I think how many miles/points I have and I wonder to myself “Do I really need more??”
Airlines Auctioning Upgrades. Yep, get used to it. More of this is coming. A new era is around the corner. Speaking of a new era…
Loyalty has to be a two way street, otherwise it is just bribery and that’s not sustainable. From The Wandering Aramean. I liked the ending and I so agree with it:
The industry is entering into a period of significant change in the coming years. There is significant pressure to reward the right types of loyalty, not just time on a plane and not just absolute spend. There will be moves to shore up programs, ensuring that they remain revenue positive for the airlines while also not losing too much in the competitive landscape. Then again, with less competition, that is much easier to do. It isn’t like there are any programs out there which are ridiculously generous across the board.
Frontier announced today changes that are leading to it becoming the next Ryan Air! The next blogger who pushes the Frontier credit card will have a free pass to my doghouse!

Amol at Hack My Trip has a workaround on how to get free wifi on Delta. I no longer fly Delta so I feature it here for anyone who may be interested. Let’s not get into the ethics of doing this please. Take some responsibility:-)
Improving Relationships Through Travel. From Landlopers. An absolutely wonderful insightful post about the subject. Certainly applies to all relationships!
All big four airlines now charge $200 to push a few buttons to change your domestic ticket. I am happy flying Southwest next week.
