List of USA 94 Starwood Hotels with SPG category increase March 10, 2015 – Loyalty Traveler Go ahead, book now if you were planning an award stay in one of these hotels!
Register for the Uber and SPG partnership HERE. Watch how Titans use this to sell their Chase and Amex SPG cards and not tell you how you can get 5x points per dollar with Discover this quarter. Why? Is it perhaps that Discover does not pay as high of a commission? Or just too busy hurrying up to pump those links to even think about how readers can benefit more before the pockets of these bloggers?
There was a giant outpouring of pumping for the few minor changes in the Amex Premier Rewards Gold card. Which always acts as a great excuse for plastic pumping bloggers to drop everything they were doing (mainly preparing more pumping posts) to pull up template #AmexPRG template, edit a few lines and bang go to #sellsellsell mode for the 9,459,345,567,696,696,969th time. Ohh, if you wanted the details here is the post by Doctor of Credit which also shows how to get the offer to give you 50,000 Amex Membership Rewards points. Check out the CARDMATCH feature for possibly even better offers #hint. Lets be clear here. The standard offer your favorite pumping blogger pushing their affiliate links is only 25,000 Amex Membership Rewards points. Which, if my math is right, it is HALF of what you could get elsewhere. The only difference? If you go with the lower offer the pumping bloggers get a fat commission and you get screwed. Funny it works that way. Oh, and don’t click on my link either then for crying out loud. Don’t be a stupid goat, or a llama if you prefer, THINK! Or just ask us!
How to Book Aer Lingus Flights with British Airways Avios – Frugalhack.me Well written comprehensive post how to do this. I dont’ know about you but calling British Airways is definitely nowhere near the top of the list of things I would rather do in my life…
Marriott Rewards March 19, 2015 hotel category changes are bad news – Loyalty Traveler If there is one hotel chain that I absolutely do not care about (other than Wyndam which I avoid on principle…like Delta) is Marriott. 25 pages of 43 hotels on each page going up in category, wow!
This is what it’s like to rip up a Himalayan moonscape on a downhill bike – Matador Network What a fun video! If you are into bikes. And Himalaya too!

By this time I am exhausted…I just want to show you a pic of the blog posts I found that I consider the most pumpy of the past few days…No energy to make comments on them as I am exhausted by taxes, llamas and stupid dresses.
Thank you for reading and supporting my blog by clicking my $$ links! Why have you abandoned me lately, what have I done? Throw me a bone, errr, I mean a credit card, be SECOND this month, yes you can! Troll likes this, trying to get him back in the trolling. It’s entertainment folks, primarily my own. Can’t keep going like this, it is more insane than two llamas running loose live on TV. Maybe posting every other day is my groove…we shall see. I certainly feel even more obligated to keep posting if I see you actually carving out time in our busy lives to use my links #respect. And when I see no one has used my links the day before when I check at Panera each morning I feel sad but I get over it eventually…Keep buzzing! Oh wait, keep buzzing my links LOL.
