SWEET! CITI REWARDS+ 10% REBATE WORKS WITH OTHER THANKYOU CARDS FOR UP TO 10,000 POINTS BACK PER YEAR – Out & Out

I had said that I didn’t get the excitement around this card in the past.  But know that the rebate works on all cards changes my mind on that now.  I still wouldn’t apply for or use the card much but I would downgrade or product change into it.  It is basically $125 a year in easy money if you use ThankYou points at all.

On Wednesday, European officials said Google had unfairly required websites that used its search bar to feature ads from Google’s advertising services over those of rivals. Google has said it stopped the practice starting in 2016.

Review: Grand Hyatt Athens – the $5,000 Acropolis Suite – Running with Miles

I don’t often share hotel reviews because I find them kind of boring but this was a pretty cool room.  I always seem to get upgrades on one night stays when I am with myself or get in late and can’t enjoy it.  Hopefully Charlie got to enjoy it fully!

  1. that seattle times article…just wow.

    “Assessed a failure of the system as one level below “catastrophic.” But even that “hazardous” danger level should have precluded activation of the system based on input from a single sensor — and yet that’s how it was designed.”

    I watch a lot of Air Crash Disasters and this is like aircraft design 101. There have literally been multiple episodes that discuss this sort issue, I’m shocked that professional engineers with decades of experience could design their systems to be so reliant on a single sensor.
