The latest wrap up about the Citi Prestige card and where it stands right now…
If you have an SPG Amex card, you could get 2,500 SPG points by adding an authorized user.
Premium Chase “Sapphire Reserve” credit card coming? With 100k bonus. But if you had more than 5 of ANY credit cards in the past 24 months, forgetabbouit. This eliminates 99.99% of you, I sure know how you feel and weep with you!
21 Things to Know Before You Go to Bhutan. Every time I see a pic of the Tiger’s Nest I say “Wow!”.
Oh no…A new hotel brand CR7 is coming that mirrors Cristiano Ronaldo’s lifestyle. “”I enjoy trendy atmospheres, with vibrant social life and a cool vibe.” Please stab me right now! I could make a separate post about this but I am not a Titan.
Ultra cool timelapse video watching an F/A 18 Super Hornet plane get built from the ground up.
This is an incredible find. Ok, I am biased I guess because I find this stuff! “A Terrifying Journey Through the World’s Most Dangerous Jungle“. The Darién Gap on the border of Colombia and Panama…Brace yourselves. You are welcome.
For laughs, especially if you are an attorney: The Six People You Meet at the Bar Exam Here is an excerpt:
1. The Perennial Failure
This person has failed the bar exam five times in the last three years, but, without changing study habits at all, thinks this the one time things will go differently. Even some smart people fail the first time. Law of large numbers, it happens. But, if you fail your second and third attempts, you really should consider whether you’re cut out to be an attorney. Not that being an attorney is particularly hard; you’re just particularly stupid.
Time to start finding alternative uses for that law degree. For instance, if you roll it up, you can swat flies with it. Have you considered a career as an exterminator?
Good personal finance checklist with all the latest changes in the laws after the Supreme Court decision to constitutionalize same-sex marriages.
5 of the strangest Japanese foods ever. Check the dancing squid bowl dish below. I guess I will skip the “Shirako”, which is sperm for fish, WTF!

Picture of the day at Twisted Sifter: British Columbia. So serene, unlike every day when I scream “serenity now”, especially when they do not refill the coffee at Panera on time!

I guess I could have made a separate post about the IHG Rewards Pointbreaks list like so many other bloggers so I can make money off more page views…oh wait, I don’t have any ads here! Besides, where is the originality in doing anything like that? Here are the picks of Stefan at Rapid Travel Chai.
There is an Ameriprise branded Amex card I did not know existed, easy 25k Membership Rewards points. Thanks for this gem to reader ABC.
We discuss some blogs in FlyerTalk. The discussion came around the Prestige card in the thread for One
Mile Prestige Card at a Time and when someone pointed how finally View from the Wing posted about the changes I had to point out the juicy $$$ details for…completeness. It’s about education!
I had the horrible thought to checkout the former Delta Points blog when he also updated his readers with the Prestige card changes. Stupid me, nothing has changed. Apparently, just because you are running a business you have the green light to not properly inform your readers. Nice job Boarding Area for going along with such practices. Even Million Mile Secrets at least linked to the non affiliate 50k Prestige card link!
It appears, officially, that Ingy and Howie are both out at Frugal Travel Guy. The credit card selling in that site has missed a bit but I am sure they are working on selling more plastic as usual. And guess which one of them went to Award Wallet? Enjoy your emails and “in your face” must click ads from them, smh. Love the PM feature in FlyerTalk and DM in Twitter, feel free to use it with any inside info, blog’s title contains BUZZ #hint.
Ok, not blog related, just a funny family picture!
And I leave you with this…Just when I thought I found an affiliate link strategy to join Titanhood…LOL!
