Miles to Memories Roundup & Updates
A lot of interesting posts came across my screen today. I thought I would share some of those with you and catch you up on a few things I mentioned in previous posts. Enjoy!
Posts that Caught my Eye
A really cool infographic showing the history of Mother’s Day along with how and when it is celebrated in various countries around the world. My wife is Mexican and it always throws me off every year since they celebrate on May 10. This was the first year in a long time that “Mexican” Mother’s Day and “American” Mother’s Day fell on the same date!
The Deal Mommy makes an interesting argument. She is right about getting good cash rates, but those tend to be in weekly chunks of time which can be tough.
I still think the Wyndham credit card may be of use to a lot of people as I wrote this morning. As with anything, there are considerations to be made and for Barclay’s, I still prefer the Arrival Plus overall.
Another great find from PointsCentric. The 25k + $100 statement credit had been around for quite some time, but it disappeared a few weeks ago. Fortunately there is a way to get it to show on the Alaska Airlines website. Head over the link for more details.
Good information from Doctor of Credit. While most banks report your balance on the statement printing date, a few stray from that practice occasionally. It is always good to know what balances are being reported to the credit bureaus since your credit utilization is 30% if your FICO score calculation.
Ok, so I know some people love Waffle House and many people hate it! Either way, the Waffle House Museum looks quite interesting and I think it is cool that it is housed in the very first ever Waffle House. No matter how you feel about their food, the nostalgia alone is worth taking a look.
Here are a couple of quick updates from previous posts:
- Despite Office Depot removing the Visa gift card deal from their online ad, I have seen many reports that the deal is still alive across the country.
- Sam’s Club seems to be out of many lower denomination gift cards because of their Amex Offer. They have even stopped selling Sam’s Club gift cards in denominations lower than $50. Luckily you can pay with 2 cards, meaning it would be $10 for a $50 card which isn’t bad.
Have a great Monday!
