Weekly Summary

Great Deal on Bose QuietComfort 20, Amex Playing It Smart For Long-Term Customers, All About the Apple Watch Series 3, and More!

Written by Charlie

Check out all the posts from the week with great deals on many items, details about a SPG promo with a better alternative, all about the new Apple Watch Series 3 and more!

It has been a couple of weeks since the last summary post, partially because the previous week was a little bit on the lite side. We have had family in town and that always cuts down on my regular posting times of day (or, rather, night) but it is certainly enjoyable having family visit!

A Word on the Olive Garden Italy Pass and Pasta Pass

This last couple of weeks had some more deals and running centric posts. One of the more popular posts had to do with the Olive Garden Pasta Pass. Believe it or not, in our family and all the devices, we actually were able to get a total of 4 but did not end up buying them all.

Part of that was thanks to their incredibly messed up payment processing. Not only that, but the timer was so far messed up that among all 12 of our devices (and even on a few different networks), we had a 17 second differential! We were all trying for the Italy Pass and that of course did not happen because of their messed up timing. We did have one person make it to the waiting room!

Miles, Points, and Deals

And that is it for the past couple of weeks! Hope the rest of this week goes well for all of you!
