The Top 25 Credit Cards via Mile Nerd. It all starts here.
Profile: American AAdvantage. Nice recap of what you need to know about the program. Which probably should be renamed DisAAdvantage.
The Lazy Traveler Andy does not play around with his words on Delta and tells you to book an award to India before it is too late! The post also has a great table comparing Business Class awards between the three remaining legacy airlines.
Delta SkyMiles is the most dishonest and unethical major U.S. frequent flyer program. Always has been and probably always will.

ANA Mileage Club Cheat Sheet for Using Your Miles. Another nice recap of this program. Too many/high fuel surcharges always turned me off but I should take a closer look with so many Amex MR points in the bank…
Left an Item on the Plane? Use the Online Automated Lost and Found. I used this once with Southwest. Even though I did not get my cherished notebook back, it was a very smooth process and I was impressed.
10 exotic markets, bazaars around the world. Some of these sound awesome. I can’t believe there was one in Ann Arbor, do NOT come to town for that please #nobigdeal
14 of the most impressive motorcycle roads in the US. Some of these look totally awesome!
Priceline kills Name Your Own Price for Flights. Not that surprised by this, I blame TheFlightDeal guys for it lol. This never got any traction I believe. I used to use the hotel bidding years ago but not recently. I wonder if that will go down…if it does, I will delete this bookmark once and for all. I loved the Shatner commercials with people bidding and him yelling “LOWER!”.
More details about the brilliant video by DJ Shadow I posted recently: Battle Rap Kiev. The building it was filmed in is in Kiev, Ukraine and the whole piece bursts of political symbolism. Loved the pigs roaming around, so appropriate.
Personal Finance post of the day: A Bored Investor is a Dangerous Thing. Excellent. August was a giant bore, wow!
Come to this Boeing 747 to partyyyyyyy! This airplane has been converted to a night club and it is just awesome! Hey, you can check in your emotional baggage too #brilliant!
