There will be a Sunday post this week. A “3 Links I Love” type post, I do have four awesome links handpicked for you.
Help is on the way! Son is done with Hong Kong post I need to review/edit. And relative from Greece likes to travel to obscure countries and has sent me a trip report from Kazakhstan which I may break it up in two or three parts. Getting to it! No Vendoming crap, only original stuff makes it here!
We’ll start with something entertaining. Mile Nerd starts answering reader questions. I wonder how I’ll respond if “Secret Perv” and “Bob’s Your Uncle” ever asked me anything lol.
Another post with pro tips for visiting Havana.
List of inventors killed by their own inventions. First, thank you for your contributions. Second, WTF dudes, seriously?
How to properly shake hands in 14 different countries. It is about educating around here too!
Simple Rules of Capitalism, your personal finance fix of the day! Because.Capitalism.Is.The.Best.Of.All.Imperfect.Systems.Out.There!
The best beaches in the world. Lame blogger question: Which one is your favorite? TBB question: Which one did you get laid in?
Europe’s first underwater museum. This is very cool!
Charming portraits of Hong Kong’s Shop Cats. So cute, meow!
This section is for advanced hobbyists, the ones who think miles & points 24/7…
The worst (expected) fears is that my Fairmont Lifetime Platinum President’s Club ride is over in 2017. So sad…Unless I get all of you to fight back. Naahhh, all deals/rides end #sosad.
And it also looks like the Chase Fairmont Visa is no longer available to new applicants, MAJOR BOO! I got me another $200 in Fairmont gift cards (yes I know the earn on this card sucks, don’t want to get into it, it’s complicated!). So I guess I am down to my last free Fairmont
rides stays. I want to cry!
Breaking: Two working links for the Fairmont Visa (Last chance, hurry!)
The 100k Chase Sapphire Reserve offer is still valid only inside Chase bank branches. Me and wife were AGAIN not preapproved…for months straight now, boo! Still two chances in February and March #crossfingers. If you see a blogger selling the 50k CSR offer and keeping mum about the 100k offer at the branch LEAVE that blog immediately because they treat you like a SUCKER! Don’t be one!
If you were thinking about blowing some Hyatt points at the Andaz Peninsula Papagayo in Costa Rica…I was not impressed. Mosquitos love me and getting pooped on by monkeys is just not my thing. It may be for you though.
Award Wallet’s founder reached out to me. This is what they are doing for security. I feel much better about it. I told him I am a fan of the software and I do not like the recent change in direction with the blogging/credit card monetization moves.
This is a great reference link: All the Automobile Manufacturer Branded Credit Cards. Yeah, ask your pumping blogger (looking at you The Points Guy!) why he never mentions the Amex Mercedes-Benz Platinum card huh? What do you mean TBB he does not get paid for this one that gives applicants more points than the one he pumps all the time that pays his company handsomely? THINK!
And I leave you with this…
