Good morning everyone, happy Sunday! I had a great time in San Diego this weekend, starting with the San Diego Travel Meetup yesterday – it was great meeting so many miles and points collectors. We talked for hours about credit card sign up bonuses, bank account bonuses, manufactured spending, and the award flights and hotels we booked recently. I will definitely be back to San Diego again later this year and look forward to seeing a few familiar faces then. I then spent a few hours with my writer Shelli, who lives in San Diego. She will be traveling a lot in May, so she has been working hard on a few blog posts to schedule while she is traveling. I have read most of them and they are very good, especially her post coming out this Wednesday regarding the coffee scene in Buenos Aires. Check back on Wednesday morning for that post!
Tomorrow is May 1, which marks the 4 year birthday / anniversary / blogiversary of Travel with Grant. It is hard to believe that the blog is turning 4 years old (first post published on May 1, 2013). A lot has changed over those last 4 years. I miss the good old days of buying Vanilla Reload Cards at Office Depot (with a Chase Ink Bold / Plus) then at CVS (with AMEX Old Blue Cash). Then the good times I had with my many Bluebird, Serve, and Redbird cards. Then the good days using Nationwide Visa Buxx cards and churning credit cards. Ahh, RIP great deals.
To celebrate my 4 year blogiversary, I am giving away 10 $10 Amazon eGift Cards. Just leave a comment below regarding your favorite blog post or topic I covered on this blog during the last 4 years and I will pick my 10 favorite answers. The giveaway comments section is open through 11:59pm PT on Monday night (May 1) and I will pick 10 winners on Tuesday morning and email them a $10 Amazon eGift Card.
A big thank you to all my readers (both new and old) along with all the friends and bloggers I have met over the years. Talking and tweeting with you always brings a big smile to my face. Thanks again and have a great weekend everyone!
