Here are the articles for this edition:

MoviePass competitor Sinemia can’t keep up with demand – Tech Crunch

Not at all surprising since that is a common complaint on my Sinemia review.  I am surprised they wouldn’t change the wording to say longer than 7 days or not bill until the cards are shipped.  It is also interesting that they are not issuing refunds when people are complaining…they didn’t live up to their promise they should issue a requested refund.  Moviepass hasn’t really been any better on the customer service front.

3 reasons I’m NOT going to focus my spending on mile-earning cards – PWaC

I agree with Ian on this take.  I have long said that you should focus on points that give you options and by doing so you should almost never need to pay cash for travel.  With sign up bonuses getting harder to get earning versatile points is key.

Half an hour in Delta’s Premium Select. A mini review. – Frequent Miler

Looks like a pretty good seat that would be perfect for the shorter US to Europe flights.  Something worth considering which could save you a few miles or dollars.

Xiamen Air Transit Hotel Disaster! – Seat31B

I linked to the first article about this when the flight was booked and said it sounded like it was gonna be torture.  Well it ended up being even worse than I expected!  Great/entertaining read though.

Use Points to Book Just Announced Fall 2019 Disney Cruises – Mommy Points

I know these are hugely popular.  Looks like some good itineraries if you were thinking about going on one.  You can check out our review of a Disney Cruise too!
