Feature Week Review – A Look Back

Updated on December 14, 2023

Minion feature week

What a week it’s been! 

In case you missed it, here’s a recap of what’s been published during my feature week so far:

  • Ireland & Poland – 15 Day Trip Report – I spent more time writing this extensive trip report than actual “vacation” time.  The most popular mini-reports: Aer Lingus NEW Business Class review and JFK Aer Lingus Lounge review
  • AwardWallet Plus Upgrades – This went fast, too fast… and only a few had the decency to post that the code was used. I wish there was a better way to give these away with and mark them as used faster.
  • $350 Giveaway & Top 5 Credit Cards – I like to have a giveaway at least once a year.  The $200 AA e-gift certificates I gave away in 2014 was a big hit.  This year, I am giving away $200 AA e-gift certificates AND $150 in Cathay vouchers.
  • Free Credit Scores – I got ripped apart!  The intent of the post was to point out the following:
    • signing up for CreditKarma and Credit.com accounts will give you free credit scores that are generated based on data from all 3 bureaus
    • I tend to refresh my scores right before applying for credit cards to get a sense of approval or rejection.
    • Some readers argued that these CreditKarma and Credit.com FAKO sores are not indicative of your true FICO scores – have a read at the comments and make sure to grab some popcorn!
  • 200,000 Amex MR pts – Shared how I scored 200k Amex MR pts from 2 credit card signups.  Jack’s comment “Guess what I’ll be doing tonight! Dumpster diving baby!” made me LOL.
  • Amex SPG 25k After $3k Spend – slightly superior offer vs. the affiliate offers (that require $5k spend)
