Losing A Secondary Cash Back Source Today - Plink Shuts Down

Disappointing but pretty self-explanatory, Plink ran out of money and is closing up shop.  Though it wasn't a big earner, the extra cash back sometimes made the difference that made a deal viable.  I was lucky enough to only have $4.49 worth of unredeemed points.  I'm sure others ended up far worse off, and this should serve as a reminder not to leave too many points sitting in any one place, especially with the smaller outfits.

Cheap airfare to Kauai - Who likes chickens?

So it seems like just about all of the travel bloggers have already tweeted or posted about this, but I couldn't pass up the chance to post a picture of a chicken:


If you've been to Kauai, you already understand. If not, a future post will have details about my trip to Kauai last year (and more chicken pictures).  

So anyways, check out this deal on airfare to Hawaii at The Miles Professor webpage http://goo.gl/oZZzQo

I think it's time for a return...

So I know it looks like I've totally abandoned the site, and I suppose I have.  It's been nearly 7 months since my last post.  I had planned on taking some time during the holidays to working on revamping the layout of the site and begin preparing some new material.  As you may have noticed, only part of this actually happened and I've been on an extended hiatus.  I'm planning on starring this up again before the end of the summer.

In the meantime, here's a random travel pic that will be used in a later post:
