Evolve Money will be implementing a limit of one payment per biller account per month. This change takes effect September 1, 2014

Hope, I didn’t miss anything. Really hope.

On a bright side, I’m going to Cancun in 10 days (under a guise of attending a travel (#TBEX) conference). And this Monday, I’m taking my family to decaying and decomposing Atlantic City for a few pre-school days of sun and fun. Looking forward to catching its last semi-glorious days while [some of] the city is still standing; that is, before it gets completely overrun by elements, stray dogs and New Jersey politicians.

Oh, wait, I’ve already mentioned elements. My bad!

Secret FB Group: Reminder

Those who want to join my secret FB group, there are two things. First, friend me on FB, and second to send me an email. It’s not enough to do one or another. I have other people who friend me on FB and who have nothing to do with the hobby.

Saturday Night Late – Buckle for a Chuckle (06.07.14)

  Toilet humor, anyone? No, not today. Since my last week Late Saturday Night “column” has been well-received (meaning getting a few clicks above the usual two or three), I’ve decided to try and reproduce that success by turning it into another scheduled feature (just like my other scheduled features I can never keep upContinue Reading

This is a post by Jeff Norris. Jeff is a frequent flyer who constantly searches for new ways to travel rich on a low budget.

Sadly, My Optimism About Thailand Being Safe Might Have Been Premature

In my recent post: Coup d’etaut in #Thailand: Should You Cancel Your Trip? I said no you should not. Unfortunately, the unfolding of events on the ground two days after the #thaicoup as well as an exchange with a person who travels to Thailand quite often, has made me think that maybe I spoke too soon. First,Continue Reading

Amusing Things You Hear on the Plane

What the hell! Not everything is about miles, right? In my mail today, I found this Quora collection of airplane jokes, titled: What are some witty and amusing things you have heard on an airplane?  For those who don’t know, Quora is a really interesting and different social platform. Ask a question, and dozens if not hundreds of people willContinue Reading

The Real Cost of Meeting Spend Requirements: Lost Profit

The Real Cost of Meeting Spend Requirements: Lost Profit

As you know, my true passion is travel, not Manufactured Spend. I had never looked into making profit from our hobby aside of free trips.

However, increased spend requirements and decreased benefits of the loyaltyContinue Reading

Airlines are slipping us a roofie again

  Isn’t it funny that every time a big corporation loses a battle in their never-ending war against consumers, they immediately roll up their sleeves and start grinding at it again? Never give up, do they? No, it’s not funny! The ink hasn’t even dried on the DOT’s ruling mandating the airlines to display aContinue Reading

New York to Grand Caiman for $234-235 RT with Taxes
