I was shocked to see my friends pay a restaurant bill with debit cards, but it turns out they’re perfectly representative of millennials on the whole – Business Insider
While I don’t find a lot of the recommendations great in the article, airline cards are terrible everyday cards and using the Freedom cards as cash back cards..ouch. I did find one piece of info interesting however, 23% of millennials do not use credit cards. I thought millenials had latched onto credit cards more than that since they were a big part of the Chase Sapphire Reserve success.
An Elaborate Scam That Was Very Realistic – Tahsir Ahsan
While not miles or points related I thought this was worth sharing. We have covered other elegant scams in the past with Visa gift cards but this thing is on a whole different level.
Giving Children Vacations Instead of Toys Can Lead to Advanced Brain Development, Experts Suggest – Travel & Leisure
While there are always hot take studies / articles like this I thought people would find it interesting. I don’t really care about the study much but it does coincide with a change I have made the last few years. We have been doing trips more and more as gifts versus the normal hot toy. We will usually buy them something of their choice while on the trip. For their birthdays it was a Harry Potter wand at Universal. But I think this will continue to be the case going forward for us and it will be more travel and less presents overall. It is the gift of seeing something new and spending quality time together.
