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.
