US Bank Radisson Rewards Credit Card 20,000 Bonus Points Posting from May Targeted Spending Offer

Good afternoon everyone.  Back in May, US Bank sent out emails to US Bank Radisson Rewards Credit Card members regarding a targeted spending offer.  Spend $500 or more each month of May, June, and July and earn 20,000 bonus Radisson Rewards Points.  20,000 Radisson Rewards points are worth ~$100 to me, so I decided to complete the spending requirements.  Fast forward to this week and the 20,000 bonus points just posted to my Radisson Rewards account.

Huge Score! Citi AT&T Access More Credit Card Thank You Points Adjustments Posted

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  The calendar date may say October 7, but to me, it feels like Christmas morning!  Let me explain.  I just checked my Citi credit card statements and noticed this message on my 3 Citi AT&T Access More Credit Cards.  According to the message, Citi did not reward me the correct number of Citi Thank You Points for purchases made on my Citi AT&T Access More Credit Cards.  Citi is going to make an adjustment to my account in the next 2-3 billing cycles (actually, Citi credited the missing Citi Thank You Points on that statement).

Hotel Review: Best Western Chinatown Hotel in Yangon, Myanmar (Great Price & Meals)

Good morning everyone.  After leaving Beijing, I spent 3 nights in Yangon, Myanmar on my 10 Day Asia Trip.  Myanmar does not have many chain hotels, so I checked on TripAdvisor and the Best Western Chinatown was a top pick and was only ~$50 USD / night.  A few weeks before checking in, I status matched from Hilton Diamond Elite Status to Best Western Diamond Select Elite Status.  This hotel is nothing fancy, but the breakfast and dinner were excellent.  The hotel also had a spa that offered 20% off massages in the afternoon and a sauna attached to the gym.  I wasn’t planning on writing a hotel review about this hotel, but after I checked out, I regretted not taking more pictures of the hotel.  Therefore, I am borrowing images from the Best Western website.
