Free flight to Fiji was pretty cool :)

You can't leave out the free toilet paper, where it all began.

And no one mentioned all the free paper and magazines.


From 2005? How many here for around that far back when it was ctownbochur probably... Most people here for the last five years.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

True. I hate that I didn't turn 18 till the 30 day churnings were already dead.

Anyway I've been around since day 1, actually I made the first comment ever on DD :))

Let's not forget the MR-BA 50% transfer bonuses
And the platinum 100k signup bonus's in good ol'  days of Amex churning  (drool)  :P

I was quite fond of the AMEX offer $25 back on $75 which became saving 33% on amazon purchases for a while.
Also OV's @ 7-Eleven for 5x UR.
