Ok, filler post. Other bloggers do this all the time, this is my first time doing it so please give some slack por favor. And give me some credit (pun intended) for not succumbing to the lure of easy money provided by the blood sucking criminal banks so many bloggers in this space have surrendered to. The “venture” here is not a money maximization scheme pretending to be an expert and conveniently finding ever more ridiculous ways to slip in affiliate credit card links. If I can cover my costs and perhaps expense some trip costs (Charlotte DO) and somehow eke out a $1 profit this year I am thrilled as the entertainment and connections with readers my site has provided me are priceless. I am still dazed by the Barclays card pimping posts from yesterday and I am doing it all for YOU! 🙂
Who knows what the future holds for TBB? It is an avenue for expressing myself and perhaps adding some value to your lives (mostly by entertaining, some education and rarely some inspiration). Thank God upstairs for my health (down 21 lbs now, phucking A!), my family and my readers. And please ignore the trolls 🙂
May the force be with you! Thank you for reading and the support. See you tomorrow!
Please start your shopping here.
SUPER HOT – MEANING EVERYONE IS DOING IT!
You sign up and you get $20 credit. I get $10 after you use the service. Ride large in bigger cities, screw taxis 🙂 [Note: Credit can vary, please check what you get to make sure!]
Update: Here is a better link that is supposed to net you $25. I am sure you can figure it out. Sadly, it helps Delta and you all know how I feel about the airline 🙂 Thanks to Adam for confirming this is valid as you know I don’t trust many Delta related “sources”.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND – I USE AND LOVE THESE!
The most reliable online shopping portal imho! Not the highest rates but I NEVER had an issue with them and they pay fast!
We each get $5 when you sign up with my link above after you make a $25 purchase (or higher).
Starwood SPG Personal or Business American Express Credit Card
I earn 5,000 SPG points if I refer you and you get approved. I will need your email address and you must apply through the link in the email you will receive from Amex. Please email me if you are ready to go for it. At this point the standard SPG offer is offered:
Earn up to 25,000 bonus Starpoints®
Earn 10,000 Starpoints after your first purchase on the Card
Earn 15,000 Starpoints after you use your new Card to make $5,000 in purchases within the first 6 months
RECOMMEND – I USE AND LIKE THESE BUT NOT A RAVING FAN
This is the former INGdirect, it was purchased by Capital One. I have had two accounts here for many years. No fees! It does not pay the highest interest rates but it is still high. The best website in my opinion. If you are into credit card churning please be aware that the company pulls your credit report from all three agencies. You can learn more about this in the Capital One 360 website. If you open an account you can earn $25 (it is $50 for a checking account) and they pay me $20 which I intend to blow on Panera and/or Starbucks, thank you! The minimum to open the Capital One 360 Savings account is $250.
Another solid shopping portal almost everyone uses! I get a credit for the referral if you open an account with my link but not sure how much. If anyone knows please tell me.
HELP A BROTHER OUT – JUST BECAUSE YOU WANT TO SUPPORT TBB
I earn $5 (or $10) I think. TopCashBack has the highest rates consistently. Personally, I had bad experiences with this site as do others. Some other users report no problems at all, including Frequent Miler. Your call.
