Walmart Makes Negative Changes To Money Order Policy – Million Mile Guy

Walmart has sent out a memo that has some new changes for Walmart money order procedures and bill pay.  I know this is a tool many people use to rack up miles so it is sad news for many people out there.

Billionaire earns first-class travel for life by putting Modigliani nude on Amex – The Guardian

The more money you have the more things you get for free.  What I could do with 170 Million Membership Rewards points, color me jealous.  A man who can afford luxury travel wherever he goes is going to get it for free from now on.  I am surprised Christie’s went for it since it takes a sizable chunk out of their bottom line. Thanks to Facebook Group member Aniket for sharing.

The Amazing CNB Crystal Visa Infinite Card. A deep dive. – Frequent Miler

This is an amazing product but I have never been compelled to jump through all of the hoops to get it.  Simplicity is my word of the year and this card doesn’t fall into that realm.  If you were interested in the card Greg goes over all of the highlights in detail.

  1. I thought the story about the painting was a recent story, but realized it was almost 3 years ago. I am also surprised the auction house accepted AMEX.

    • I thought it was new as well Alex. I am ashamed to say I didn’t look at the date. It was shared in our FB group so I assumed it was new. Still surprised they were able to make the sale work.
