I’ve been told by many people in Europe and Asia that we Americans are geography-challenged. Maybe it’s true and we aren’t as geography-savvy as we should be. I know for myself, if someone mentions a place, whether it is a city or a country I’m not familiar with, I’ll do some research. I like geography and knowing where places are.
I can’t believe this happened again, though with a different friend. Doesn’t he read my blog posts on TWG? This time on my friend’s FIRST day, which was to start a seven week trip around Mexico, the ATM ate his debit card. He had no cash on him. His bank told him they’d send a new debit card, but after tracking the card’s delivery and waiting four days, my friend had doubts about getting his card.
I just discovered an important task that somehow never got done. Small tasks often have big benefits, and I don’t want to miss this bonus. Maybe because I was traveling during October, but holy cow, I never activated my Freedom card for this quarter’s bonus spend.
It’s always good to know at least a few words in the local language of our destinations, don’t you think? Right now we can’t help but catch the news about Brexit. No matter how you feel about whether or not it’s a good or less good happening, and especially if you’ll be traveling to Europe soon, this Brexicon will come in handy.
Avianca LifeMiles and Citi’s ThankYou points programs linked up in late 2017. From time to time Avianca offers a bonus when transferring ThankYou points. From now until December 12, 2018, they are offering a 25% bonus when transferring Citi ThankYou points to Avianca LifeMiles. That’s as good a bonus on transferring ThankYou points as I’ve seen.
