Used to be big with Hilton points, Platinum diamond member or whatever but now hotel stays cost wayyyy too many points so I am kind of all over. Usually I am lazy and just "Name my Price" on Priceline which keeps my company happy haha

Heading to DC tonight then Philly. Went to Knoxville last week and was surprised at how nice the area was.

What rewards cards do you guys use?

I have a United Visa card that gives me 3 miles per dollar spent and a bunch of bonus miles each year, plus other benefits. It's through Chase.

Nowhere recently. I really want to GTFO of Cincy for a week or two, but my college student budget isn't travel friendly.

The United card has an annual fee. It's worth it though.

Lounge passes, free baggage, priority boarding etc.

An 18" strand of 6mm white pearls is $20. An 18" string of very high quality, 8mm pearls with matching earrings is about $60. I spent about $750 last night on pearls. That's a lot of necklaces.

Halfway through my week here, hotel was full so they moved me into a full suite in the Residence side of the Kerry complex. These things rent for $10,000 per month.

I like cash. I have a Bank Of America 3-2-1 card. 3% cash back on gas, 2% on groceries and 1% on everything else. I figure to get about $800-$1000 a year.

I know. Been here for three days, but get to go home tomorrow! I had to spend three weeks here back in 2008 so this trip went by relatively fast.

I was flying at least once a week and primarily used Southwest. It was well worth the annual fee.

Delta Gold from AmEx. ATL is my main airport so Delta makes sense. Good benefits. Double miles and 20% off on Delta purchases, priority boarding and upgrades once in a while.

I use AmEx excessively to the tune of $60k+ charged in the past12 months for personal transactions alone, so they have been waiving or discounting the annual fee.

Flying to Dallas. Back home tomorrow. I fucked up. I always go for an aisle seat and I opted for the window. Some fat birch took the middle seat. FML.

On a somewhat related note, my daughter asked me where "BFE" is. I told she'd have to look it up on the internet.

Halifax nova scotia for the next 2 days. Covering a trade show for our rep out here. I hate doing trade shows. Worst part of sales period, pitching in the customers office is 10x more effective.

I hate going to trade shows. Nothing but a bunch of Mizouse wanna-bee's who pretend to be decision makers but are really just in town for the strippers.

^ true story. In it for the free trip, in capable of making decisions and you stand around like an asshole in your booth for multiple days, getting behind on real work and account management, to be left eating a quick meal in the hotel bar and going back to your room to tcb the rest of the night.
