Outdoor Dining at Nobu Malibu

A note from Greg the Frequent Miler:  In November 2017, Barclaycard offered to send me on an all-expense-paid first class trip to California to learn about the new Uber credit card. Their goal was clearly to butter me up to write good things about the card. Conflict of interest? Absolutely. Was I interested anyway?

Act fast if you want the Wyndham credit card offers

This morning, Greg wrote about the great promotions currently being run by Wyndham Rewards and the terrific value you can get out of the program since all hotels cost 15K per night (See: 35,000 bonus points: planning my first mattress run in years). Since there is no easy way to transfer points into Wyndham and they cap your annual point-purchasing power, the only other way to quickly amass Wyndham points is through the Wyndham Rewards…
