A Terrible Time Share Sales Pitch Presentation – Milenerd

I haven’t time a timeshare sales pitch since I was 24, in Vegas, and after reading this I am glad I said thanks but no thanks for good!

Using Amex Cards to Earn 2.5% Cash Back – Windbagmiles

Something worth considering if you are in full cash back mode.  You could probably get a better return using Membership Rewards points for travel but cash is king!

Results From Barclay’s Flight Cents Program – Windbagmiles

Windbagmiles with the double link!!  I had completely forgotten about this offer (I obviously didn’t take advantage of it).  Interesting to see how it is working out.  Did anyone else use the program?  Let me know in the comments section!

Another All In One Credit Card – Doctor of Credit

This card seems really late to the party.  It would be cool for one of these to work out but I have a feeling they are going to burn up their funding and go bankrupt.

United Jamming in More Seats – Inc.

I am so glad I don’t fly you United although everyone else will be jumping in line.  This is going to make flying economy a real treat….insert sarcasm font here!

Get Best Western Diamond Status with your Amex Platinum Card – Flying High on Points

A nice way to get Best Western Elite status if you have an upcoming stay with them.  This would also work with the Amex Surpass card.

A reminder that schedule changes can be your friend – The Free-quent Flyer

How a ten minute flight change can save you hundreds of dollars in cancellation fees, or thousands of dollars in fare differences.

Get a refund for your Sam’s Club membership online – Doctor of Credit

With the news of their overnight closures Sam’s Club has allowed people to get a refund for their memberships online.  This has always been possible to do in person at the service desk but this will save you the drive and having to wait in line.  It doesn’t matter how long into your membership you are either.  Day 1 or day 362.


Some interesting articles this edition.  I particuarly like the Amex 2.5% cash back article from Windbagmiles. Which one do you find the most interesting?

  1. You can also status match from your IHG credit card’s Plat. Elite status to BW Diamond – that’s how I ended up doing it!
