you are not really a buffet type investor.
You are right, I am not a fundamental investor, and not good at it.

Nothing special, if you can fill up at Costco and discounters. I use Kroger $1 off per gallon up to 35 gallons with their fuel points. A BP jobber in  my area with many locations also offers 10c off a gallon unlimited with their loyalty card.

Thoughts on KHC as a long term value play?
It looks like a text book Buffett stock at this price (and not just because he invested in it).
I'll only start looking at it above 70 .

Breakfast is a perk in many hotels for guests with or without status. Hotels don't make money giving out food to people off the street. Even people as special as Hilton Diamond members.

BTC is still in a downtrend for now, this is a retracement from the strong down move so far, the 50% retracement is at $13000. See chart below.

I've tried 2 times so far but having no luck on my personal Amex platinum? Any keywords to trigger a spending bonus? The guy (Edgar) kept checking my account but said there are no offers available (and that I got one in 2017)
Did you get one in 2017? 

Don't they usually consider it as first charged first paid. As far as purchases/balance transfers, probably the same over here.

Up In The Air / Re: Airline Compensation Master Thread
« on: February 12, 2018, 10:28:19 PM »
Hi I posted here earlier about my husband he missed a connecting flight so he was stuck overnight in another country. He was flying from Greece to Dusseldorf and from Dusseldorf to Munich and Munich to New York. The Dusseldorf flights came in late so he missed the connection. He had to stay overnight in So I filed a claim with United since he bought the tickets through there but they told me that I needed to file with Lufthansa since they were the actual carrier. I just spoke to Lufthansa now and they said that they are closing this claim and we are not entitled to the 600 Euro since the flight delay was caused by air flow management restrictions or something like that. They said that they did Research into the flight and since it was an issue with air traffic it is not their responsibility. They sent $100 compensation for the fact that he received no Kosher meals on a 10-hour flight when he finally did get on to the second leg the following day but that is the extent of the compensation they're offering. Is this normal? I mean isn't this what they would always say that it is an air traffic issue and not theirs?
If it is not the airline's fault then no use to fight it, but as you mentioned , sometimes they may not state the correct reason, happened to my wife on a flight from IND to TLV, the flight from IND  to ORD  got cancelled, they claimed weather, IND weather was NP and I checked ORD and there were no weather issues. She ended missing the flight to TLV and arrived 32 hours later, had to pay for a hotel in Vienna, airline was Austrian, blamed on United and United ignored her request, stating weather as the reason the flight was cancelled.
