Nice. Sad how the biggest and most influential are always the scummiest.
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

  • 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.

"The only scenario where they will come in handy is when I need points immediately for an award, and the points earned on my card havenít posted yet."

She is spending on her Hyatt card to earn Hyatt points.

I don't think I can read past that...

ď If anything, this revelation is a great reminder in the value of building points balances that are in a transferable currency, such as American Express Membership Rewards or Chase Ultimate Rewards. If you were collecting solely Virgin Points in hopes to redeem them for a Delta One flight, those amounts have skyrocketed overnight.Ē

"Pretty much every player at this level disliked Brian Kelly and The Points Guy for one reason or another, including, but not limited to: being a sellout, beating them to the punch, getting in bed with the credit-card companies, advocating for suboptimal deals, masquerading as a consumer advocate, taking credit for a community he did not create and giving a face to a subculture that would rather remain anonymous."

"itís been top of my review wish list" - really??
Also I can't believe they dramatized a BUS ride

  • Location: As always, silence is NOT an admission of agreement on DDF. It just means that people lack the stamina to keep on arguing with made up "facts", illogical arguments, deceiving statements, nasty and degrading comments, and fuzzy math. - @yelped

If both of those relationships stick, they need to give courses on how they did it.

Super cringe. You know, you can always be honest and set expectations in a balanced manner
