WHY HOUSE-SITTING IN WALES WAS ONE OF MY FAVORITE TRAVEL EXPERIENCES EVER – Megan Starr

A great idea for anyone who wants to travel on the cheap or a nomad that just needs a place to hang out for a few weeks.  I think it would be a totally unique experience and everyone I know who has done it loves it.

ANA and Air Canada Remove TAP Portugal Fuel Surcharges – The Lazy Traveler’s Handbook

Any time fuel surcharges drop off that is a great day for us in the miles and points world!

Gift Of College Adds Store Locator & More Stores Selling $500 Cards – Doctor of Credit

I know many people love these things so this is good news.  They were only available at Toys R Us for the longest time and when they went bankrupt no one knew what would happen with these.  It looks like they are being added to shelves at a lot of places.  This tool makes them easy to find. I prefer the Walmart route but this is a great option for racking up points.

  1. Bag of sand? Really? A lot of resellers sell stuff because of various reasons that they don’t have regular 9-5 jobs. I know one at amazon back when I was in college who sold books because she was taking care of a disabled child. That buyer’s account should be suspended permanently.

    • I have to imagine he would get blocked. I like that he had to pay $100 to ship it himself which he won’t see back…little karma right there.
