Another great week in the world of miles and points! I picked up almost 80,000 miles and points through travel and shopping bonuses this week and will be having even more coming my way in the next couple of weeks!
With this week being the week of Thanksgiving and Black Friday, there are sure to be some great deals that will be flowing out. I will do my best to keep you updated with those items that I feel are pertinent to the goal of this blog and those things that always interest me!
If you plan on doing any shopping this week (or anytime!) on Amazon or eBay, I would greatly appreciate you starting your shopping first by clicking any of the links on my sidebar – the images on the right for Amazon or eBay. It will cost you nothing extra but will generate a small commission for this blog which is always appreciated! Thank you!
