@Samuel Simon mall visa cards can be loaded to Bluebird at your local Walmart. They actual cost a $1 less than Vanilla Reloads. Hopefully you have a Simon Mall near you.

@Amit – It may be tough for you to believe, but bloggers don’t have the market cornered on the best ways to earn and burn miles and points, but I’m flattered you care. I might reconsider just for you.

Lots of great blogs out there to verify anything you might find here, including but not limited to travelisfree.com, travelbloggerbuzz.com and saverocity.com. Enjoy.

@Amit – LOL

@Bubba ..well in that case I should also start following your blog. Link please?

@MMS – Good show. Hey, you actually picked a great hotel (been many times – love it), just not the right caption.

@Amit – Yep, out of the many travel blogs I visit, this is one I do follow from time to time. And I even learn something new once in a long while too. But don’t kid yourself, this blog is geared towards the green newbies of the hobby that likely don’t know any better, so it’s really unfortunate when it prints misleading info to folks that are just learning about miles and points. You may feel its valuable information, but I’ll continue to have no problem correcting any new misleading posts. And my original advice remains, if you are using this blog as a resource for big travel with small money, I suggest you also doublecheck the info.
