NP, DDF now costs $10/month and Twitter alerts of mistakes costs $20/month. Problem solved ;)

Where do I sign up?

At least a premium section of DDF for $10 a month would weed out some of the crazies.

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

If people use CB portal links to buy things, instead of bloggers' links, the bloggers lose out on the commission they would have made.

Okay,
now do a 10 part MMS of how to make your own Amazon Link to pay you every time Dan links to a great Amazon Deal.  ::)
I am of the opinion that "Hakoros Hatov" matters in my life.
An I always would tell friends to use Dan's Links.
Can't thank him enough for all he tought me, even though I can be considered advanced already.

I have a lot of Hakaras hatov for Dan.
I went on crazy trips and my family travels for free.
He can run the site however he pleases.
That said I still have plenty of questions.
Some were mentioned earlier like the ritz card.
140,000 points (even if they're not worth as much as others)
Plus $600 cash plus Loungeclub plus marriott gold status and you can close the card within 180 days and get the fee back. Simply ridiculous that it's not on DDMS.
Goyish bloggers talked about chase referrals where you can get 5,000 points for CSP and 10,000 points for INK. Good deals for us though the blogger loses referrals.
C'mon Dan be at least a good as the goyim.
80k IHG + $50 plus annual cert at ANY IHG property for $49! A steal!
Great for families on low budgets(not for luxury ppl)
The everday amazon "deals" c'mon.
Besides AA, we shouldn't be booking tickets on Priceline for dan referrals. Directly with the airline is much smarter and simpler when things go haywire.
Seriously we know you have to make money but plz write things that don't make you money
And stop all the needless amazon and eBay "deals"

Some of us actually appreciate the "needless" deals, if you don't need it then just don't get it.

If you are looking for info on something Dan didn't post, you can often find it in the forums. Dan doesn't tell you not to do it, he just doesn't talk about it. I actually respect the fact that he doesn't post about cards he doesn't have experience with.


I personally prefer priceline or orbitz due to cancellation policies.

having an argument about who needs to chill kind of defeats the purpose, no?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

I'm nowhere near an expert to make a judgement on whether Dan is a tzaddik or a bum. I suspect he's just a guy like the rest of us, trying to make a living, support his family, and enjoy himself every now and then. But just from my own experience I can say that I will usually just skip any DDMS post that has amaZon or eBay or any other of these "deals". I will read things like credit card write ups, price mistake and I just got the WSJ for 40 weeks. Not saying he shouldn't wrote about the "deals" their just not very effective.

I agree. What's with all the negativity?

Link to where WA talked about finding additional award space with married segs?

It's great that there are blogs that do this in spare time and not as a job.    I'm sure it stays more fun that way.
I've read a few DoC posts that TBB has pointed out as amazing and most of them had mistakes that typical DDF'ers would know about.
I'd rather just write about programs and cards that I know proficiently and not a jack of all trades and master of none.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
