Walmart will limit customers and create one-way traffic inside its stores – NBC News

I wish stores were able to go to only online pick up and focus on people doing orders that way.  But these are changes in the right directions.  They should be an order from the government but they seem to want to drag all of this stuff out at this point.  Action has not been their strong suit at all levels.

Chase shuts down my wife a 2nd time – Miles Per Day

Looks like it could be a combination of reasons, nothing super solid as a data point this time around.  Still good to see what others have had issues with.

Non-travel point redemptions that don’t stink – Frequent Miler

I have been talking about cashing in points for other opportunities for a few weeks now.  It is something I am still going back and forth on.  We discussed some of the best ways to cash out each point on a recent podcast episode but Nick gives you some good detail on the options.

I have never been a fan of Airbnb.  Their customer service is not great and their policies are often non consumer friendly.
