This is a nice addition and should have some award space! American Airlines Becomes the Only Carrier to Fly from the U.S. to the South Island of New Zealand.
And another good resource if you want a flat bed to Africa: The Best Options For Flying Business Class To Africa.
If you transit Singapore for more than 5.5 hours, you can do a Free Singapore City Tour! And get a $20 voucher to spend too. Reading my blog is not only free but it earns you money…probably more than I make here, insert sad lol!
Nice video about the new Beijing airport. While we are wasting record low interest rates into tax cuts that explode the deficit during an unprecedented long economic recovery and unheard of low unemployment rates. Oh, never mind, this is the Travel section!
I think I am going to shift from Uber to Lyft from now on. Earning Delta and Hilton Honors points might have something to do with it lol. On a more serious note, this is yet another disturbing experience. Think Uber is Safe? Think Again! My Terrifying Story and How Uber Failed to Intervene in the Worst Way. And please you guys, do some research how to get to your destination from an airport before you get there!
Anyone stayed at an OYO hotel? Sounds really basic 🙂 A Budget Hotel Chain That You’ve Never Heard Of Is Exploding In The United States.
Great read on the subject: Crazy Like a Fox.
But while markets can seem all-knowing, they can also seem utterly mad. Who hasn’t watched the movement of major indexes and individual investments, and thought, “That’s totally nuts”? Dot-com stocks in the late 1990s. Housing prices in 2005 and 2006. Global stock markets in early 2009. Bitcoin. Negative interest rates. Need I say more? When investors are collectively exuberant or scared, crazy things can happen. [What really concerns me is that almost all new investors have not experienced anything like this…and we’ll see what happens I guess when they try to get through to their advisor on the phone or chat with their robo(t) advisor lol]
Don’t fall for complex active investments, they are not worth their fees. Read the rest of the article. Oh man, I could really pump here my SoFi referrals and make more money than I could blogging for month(s). But I guess I am not into that kind of blogger. You know, doing things for my pocket…so I prefer to whine about the lack of support clicks instead, sad lol again!
Another little gem: The Difference Between Amateurs and Professionals. THINK!

This is deep. Biology is Eating the World: A Manifesto.
We are at the beginning of a new era, where biology has shifted from an empirical science to an engineering discipline. After a millennia of using man-made approaches for controlling or manipulating biology, we have finally begun using nature’s own machinery—through biological engineering—to design, scale, and transform biology.
Wow, humans are amazing! The inspiring true story of a record-breaking, death-defying, 54 hour swim across the English Channel. Respect!
Some people are not cashing in! And they are heroes, like this guy! The Ransomware Superhero of Normal, Illinois.
Thanks to Michael Gillespie, an obscure programmer at a Nerds on Call repair store, hundreds of thousands of ransomware victims have recovered their files for free.
Click and sit back, wow! The Most Popular Websites 1996 – 2019.
Amazing photos! 2019 National Wildlife Magazine photo contest winners.
Interesting: Births by age group of mother in the United States.
We are now entering BLOG BUZZ, a section for advanced hobbyists and veterans of this fast imploding hobby and also a section where I go on and on about some stuff that happens in my life because it helps me feel better about myself.
Amex is determined to raise the annual fees of its cards and take away benefits to make them irrelevant! Next up was the pretentious Black card to go to $5,000 annual fee from $2,500 (on top of the initiation fee of $10,000!!!). We are in WTF land now!
I may do that myself, not like I am making any money with it anyway! Rakuten/Ebates Now Lets You Switch to Earn Membership Reward Points with Shopping Portal!
I will be in San Diego all of next week so my activity here will likely go down. If you are not satisfied reading my blog, I will give you your money back! Bwahahahaha!
Avoid Mastercard gift cards. But not Visa gift cards. This is not turning into an MS blog lol.
There were several airfare deals this week. But you have to move FAST! If you see them posted on The Points Guy it is probably too late!
I am so excited about the TPG Awards you guys #notreally.
Frequent Miler now starts every day with a credit card post filled with you know what, sad!
Another song recommendation. One of the best Nirvana classic song covers ever?
