Articles

Here are the articles for this edition:

What it’s like to fly on the new ‘millennial’ airline… – Business Insider

I totally stole this from Bald Thoughts’ roundup…thanks fellas.  But I thought it was worthy of a re-post.  This kind of reminds me of what Southwest was like when it first came out (at least from what I have read).  Trying something different is a good thing and their long haul product looks pretty decent.

Someone hacked my account and I was subsequently shut down – Miles per Day

Moral of the story – Chase doesn’t play these days.  A terrible situation that was 100% bad luck.  It is why you should strongly debate whether or not signing up for a non 5/24 card is worth it…especially if you value the Chase accounts you currently have.

UFC Settles Maywhether-McGregor PPV Class Action – Top Class Actions

If you had any type of disruption to your feed while watching the match then you may be in luck.  If you missed more than 5 minutes of the fight you get a full refund.  Perfect if it was the first 5 minutes!

Is MoviePass sustainable? Its parent company is bleeding money…The Mercury News

Not a real shock here, especially with the latest news that MoviePass is starting to cap the program at 4 movies per month.  Unlimited anything rarely works out, besides buffets I guess.  It sounds like their parent company is taking a lot of lumps.  This could end up being an Uber type growth strategy but I don’t see the end game at this point.  You can read my review on the program here.

TRYING TO FIND UP TO $10,000 WORTH OF LOST MS – Million Mile Guy

The saga continues.  This would drive me crazy until I figured it out as seems to be the case for MMG.  With the numbers he is doing that loss could be covered in 2-3 months but that is a lot of work for free.  This is part of the reason why I keep my MS small and highly profitable and about $345,000 less per month :).

How I did on those iPod Shuffles – Miles per Day

Vinh putting in work this week and getting the rare double link!!!  This are the stories that really get me excited about deal hunting.  And I love learning from other people’s success, and failures.  Point to take away from this is that popular discontinued items provide a lot of opportunity.
