Well, the rumors were true. Southwest came out with yet another personal credit card, the Southwest Priority card. Which has a higher annual fee at $149 but comes with a 7,500 points anniversary bonus, 4 upgraded boardings and a $75 travel credit. The signup bonus is 40,000 points after spending $1,000 in the first three months. To get an additional 25,000 points you must spend another $14,000 in the first year. Which is CRAZY! But it will be hard to qualify for it if you have or have had the other personal Southwest cards recently. Yes, it is available with my links if you decide it is good for you. And here is a good blog post about it: New Premium Southwest Priority Card Is Live: 65,000 Points, Upgrades, Travel Credit, and More.
Hyatt continues to focus on appealing to more Millennials, offering experiences and well being/health related stuff. Whatever. Hyatt Announces a New Experiences Platform – But Please Don’t Use Your Points! I agree, don’t blow your points this way. Unless you are really into doing yoga with goats lol!
The series by Lazy Traveler continues: Part 3: Marriott Low Category Hotels in Canada. Book Now or After August 1?
Sometimes, Wyndham Rewards, can be special. Just don’t bet that this is going to happen again lol. Seeking value, finding adventure for 15K Wyndham points per night.
I had no idea Lesotho had a ski resort, wow! Afriski: Lesotho’s Only Ski Resort.
This is a great infographic! Very informative especially for us living in Michigan surrounded by the Great Lakes: The Economic Impact of North America’s Most Vital Trade Corridor.
I had called for France to win it all. Because… Watch: Paul Pogba’s speech that spurred France to its World Cup victory. Destiny! It came…home 🙂
We are screwed, it is here! The first smart condom ring i.Con. The fit bit for your man bits. Now this is an affiliate link relationship I can develop deeply. Lol!
This is probably one of them epic tweets in Finance with this epic graph, wow! And this is the blog post that came with it explaining some things further…
The first drones with cameras filming us from above were pigeons. More than 100 years ago. For a Brief, Glorious Moment, Camera-Wielding Pigeons Spied From Above.
This is just the cutest! Kiwi And His Goth Girlfriend Just Had 4 Babies And Internet Is In Love.
This is really good: Finding value in Delta’s dynamic award pricing. Oh, the madness of Delta’s search engine…
Just be aware of this! Airbnb Gift Cards Are NOT Customer Friendly.
Cathay Pacific to start direct service to Seattle on March 31, 2019. Should be plenty of award seats, check it out!
This credit card affiliate business is ROUGH. It is blatantly difficult to be an ethical blogger these days and I find it, well, sickening. Sometimes I wish this happens to me so I can finally get the message that I will not become a good Titan blogger and kick my blogging addiction 🙂 In addition, the first commenter in the linked post below is the type of blog reader we bloggers certainly do NOT want around us! Please find ways to support bloggers like the Lazy Traveler: I’ve Lost My Credit Card Affiliate Links (And I’m Perfectly Fine With It).
And I leave you with this…Me when I see another post from a Titan blogger enthusiastically selling travel rewards credit cards…

GOLD! Been a while.
Silver Medal! I would have gotten gold but I was busy doing yoga with goats.
Hyatt needs to hire better marketing people. The names they’re coming up with lately! Smh
Good morning, leisurely version. The Delta pricing link was helpful. Thanks!
The deals are better with sufficient Delta status since then the bookings become refundable tickets. Booking on speculation of a trip only requires a stash of Delta miles.
Thanks for the link to the finance tweet. I was looking at the S&P 500 breakdown a few months ago and realized that maybe my index fund isn’t as diversified as I thought.
Historically the top 10 companies make up ~20% of S&P 500.
Historically only a few stocks contribute significantly to the long term growth of your portfolio. The challenge is to find those few stocks, buy them at the right point, HOLD on to them and sell them at the peak.
Getting ready for the party. Which I use to launder my blog’s profits lol!
Probably skipping my early Sat long run…for obvious reasons 🙂
Still no cc conversion this month..or so they are saying, smh.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>The challenge is to find those few stocks, buy them at the right point, HOLD on to them and sell them at the peak.
My goat can do that 🙂
First card of the month here then. APPROVED for a propel. Slim pickens on your link but was stoked to find the propel on there. $300 bucks 0%apy for a year and no fee, not to mention supporting TBB…no brainer.
Well, actually the Hyatt card paid yesterday so that was First!
I see your click. Lets see when this one pays…
It is the 21st of the month…I am going to get canned it appears.
C’est la vie
My party at my house for the Ann Arbor Art Fair DO attendees went pretty well I think.
And this morning I went for my longer run ever, 15 miles non stop. Now everything hurts and I am moving like an old man…
Thanks for the support and to the reader for the very kind email sent to me. Your ref to Rene was priceless. No reviews of ham sandwiches in my blog lol.
It came through, thank you! #2 At this rate TPG is going to get really scared 🙂
