Should You Avoid Pooling ThankYou Accounts? Yes. Or more specifically per Frequent Miler:
I recommend not pooling ThankYou accounts. Rather than pooling accounts, share points across accounts as needed. One exception: points earned from bank accounts cannot be shared so there is an argument to be made for pooling those points with a premium account in certain situations.
That Hyatt Platinum status. You know, the one that comes with the Hyatt card. Is it worth it? Well, it is better than nothing but…certainly don’t go out of your way expecting suites and stuff like that. You can learn more about it in the link.

Financial Stress Hurts, Literally. Research findings show “Financial stress may not only ratchet up physical pain, it may also amplify emotional pain.” This is what gets me in the blogosphere. Bloggers pump credit cards indiscriminately to the masses when many are just not cut out for this and you are assisting them to a life full of pain. At least, I make it very clear that you should NEVER EVER pay any interest, you must have good money habits, be detail oriented, super organized and, of course, love traveling. I only help people who I identify they are suitable for this quirky hobby, the vast majority are NOT, regardless of what The Points Guy and Million Mile Secrets
say sell to them.
