Todays post about Blue Business would be contrary to what you said. A 10k point sign up is available thru referral and possibly incognito (although you do mention "public offer" - however thats the same as TPG writing pushing the AA card). Being that this card is being pushed hard on DDMS, I feel like that small piece of information should be mentioned.
You misread what I wrote. I said I wrote about cards many times that didn't pay a commission.
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.

Is there a real difference?

Of course. Affiliates are expected to market their specified offer channels on cards that they have contracted with.

But why not let people comment with the occasional better offer?

You can comment here if you so desire, but I'm not putting my livelihood at risk for your comments.

We have quotas to make, contracts to fulfill, and that's life. I try to make value added posts and comments, but in the end of the day this is JJ-s and my family's livelihood. Once upon a time I blogged without such needs, but it wasn't intended to be a lifelong endeavor.

Posted 45 minutes ago and was front and center for 30 minutes before another asinine post took over. Over/Under on how long it will stay up before it gets disappeared like the previous post criticizing the merger.

  • 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.

TPG just posted his WAJ review. Notable points:

1. He agrees with @Dan about the breakfast: "...it was fantastic."

2. He chimed in on the great WAJ kashrus debate: "...I also later found out that the hotel had one of the strictest kosher kitchens of all the hotels in Jerusalem."

3. Apparently shakers are treif: "Service at the bar was also very good, though they couldnt make some of the drinks I requested Friday evening, as using a shaker for a cocktail would compromise the bars kosher status."

$800/night hotel? OK then...

I might not be TPG, but in all my years I've never failed at getting points rooms.
