Happy Thanksgiving! As you all know, I have a lot of fun writing this blog and collecting freebies, and I truly appreciate the fact that you take a moment out of your day to read what I have to say, particularly given how much of it is just nonsense.
I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving holiday and, for those of you who don’t celebrate it, take a day to relax. You can tell your bosses that a guy on the internet gave you permission to do so.
In the spirit of freebies, remember the following:
- For the points junkies in the room, take some time this weekend to make sure that you don’t have any expiring points in the next few months. If you do, check the issuer’s website to see what you need to do to extend the expiration. Usually, it’s as simple as taking any activity on the account, such as donating points to charity, making a purchase through the company’s affiliate mall, etc.
- When you do your shopping this weekend, remember to use a shopping rebate portal. No reason not to get a few percent back.
- Don’t discuss politics at the dinner table. That has nothing to do with points. It’s just a good idea.
