One weird old trick for cancelling the most annoying subscriptions – The Free-quent Flyer

A good idea if you are signing up for something you know you are going to want to cancel and don’t want to have to call in.  You could also use a VGC for the first order and then drain the rest of it before the second bill comes due.


Sometimes trying to get something for free ends up costing you a lot in the long run.  I can’t fault the owner of the hotel for saying no but I think he took it a little far.  I do love that she thinks she “helped” the Disney brand by taking pictures of it.

The Trick to Buying Money Orders with MasterCard Gift Cards – PointChaser

I tend to stay away from Mastercard GC because of their high theft rate and because of the PIA factor.  This is some good info for a work around if you have been having an issue draining them at Walmart.

How And Why I Booked A Round-The-World Trip In Premium CabinsSeat 31B

I always like when people break down their thinking and how they booked a trip.  This is a good write up on a trip around the world. It is kind of a 3 part series.  Part 2 and part 3.

Steve Wynn Announces Wynn West on Former Frontier and Alon Land – Travel Zork

Steve Wynn may be the best in the casino business and I am excited to see how this all turns out.  Looks like he is going even bigger than originally expected.  I found the notes from the earnings call at the bottom of the article very interesting as well!

  1. Just a warning, I used this trick years ago with dial up internet service, I used a prepaid visa card and drained it before I could be billed for the second month, they sent the amount owed out to a collection agency. So it might not be a great idea to try this.

  2. thank goodness someone finally came to their senses and bought that prime piece of real esate where Frontier once stood (initially planned for “The Plaza” but that totally stalled once the recession hit)

    Between “Wynn and West” and Resorts World (the cheesy Chinese/red theme up-and-coming casino that will even have replicas of the great wall) the stretch from Encore to Circus Circus will finally be filled. That part of the strip is really a no-man’s land for the longest time.

    • The strip has felt overdeveloped in City Center area and completely abandoned up north. I used to happily walk up and down the strip when I was feeling too cheap to Deuce it, but the up and down, in and out, of the sidewalks has made a walk between, say, Excalibur and Aria a serious pain.

    • Yeah that stretch pretty much came to a halt after the crash in 2007-08 and never really picked back up again.

      And I totally agree Anacreon walking that side of the strip, by the city center, has become unbearable.
