Suck My Click and Pimp My Link

Please excuse the following rant, but the gargantuan amount of credit card affiliate links (e.g. you click my link - I make commission) being pushed down readers (deep) throats on travel blogs has surely reached critical mass. If the links were better than the standard bonus offers available elsewhere I wouldn't mind so much. However on a regular basis, they are worse (far worse) than what you can find via a simple google search or a quick browse on the Frequent Flyer forums (flyertalk, milepoint etc).

I feel somewhat left out of all the bling bling linky hype and buzz since I haven't pimped my blog with lucrative offers (to line my own pocket), so without further ado here are my links from my own recent credit card app-o-rama (btw I was approved for each credit card instantly - YMMV)

(Disclaimer: I make zero commission i.e. nada if you click on these links, which I found via google, so click away and rest assured, you ARE getting a better deal than most of the affiliate linky blogs out there (with zero annual fee for the 1st year), but if you have more money than sense, I can cut you a deal on the Brooklyn Bridge for a 50% discount ;-)


Chase - British Airways (Personal) 50K Avios points after $2K spend within 3 months - $95 Annual fee waived 1st year

Citi - American Airlines (Personal) 50K miles after $3K spend within 3 months  - $95 Annual fee waived 1st year

Citi - American Airlines (Business) 50K miles after $3K spend within 3 months  - $95 Annual fee waived 1st year

Barclays - US Airways (Personal) 35K miles after $1 spend - $89 Annual fee waived 1st year

Laos - Luang Prabang

After the mother of all horror bus trips we finally arrived in Luang Prabang. I forgot how beautiful it was until revisiting the photos recently. I can now say it was all worth it although I might not have been so sure after the weary ride to get here. Enjoy a sample of local scenery below

Get $30 back at ShopRite when you spend $150

It's been while since I mentioned a deal / hack and in fact there haven't been too many good ones of late but there is a great AMEX promotion right now for anyone who has a ShopRite grocery store near them. The deal is as follows:

Get $30 back as a statement credit when you spend $150 or more with a registered Amex card

I used to have 9 Amex Cards so could have cleaned up with this but alas I now only have 4 cards (note your Macys co-branded Amex card will also work with this) so I will register each one and buy Amazon gift cards in store to collect my $120 statement credit (great deal for five minutes work) and don't forget small business Saturday is not too far away!

Vietnam Moped Mania

I will always remember Vietnam for what seemed like a near death experience when trying to cross the street with 200+ mopeds coming at you at full speed.  Veterans eventually learn that you just have confidently step out into the oncoming traffic and walk at a slow but consistent pace and the mopeds will somehow weave their way around you. The courage required however, is not for the faint of heart. Cables and wires dangle above every street (see first photo below). Last but not least I will never forget the warmth and friendliness of the people, despite for many, their existence in borderline poverty.
