We’ve all stolen money before, right?  No?  Just me then?

An interesting take on an ethical dilemma about stealing money at Staples, and other interesting stories


This week brought out the best ever offer for the SPG Amex card – 35,000 points for both the personal and business card

Since Amex now limits most people to only getting a signup bonus once per lifetime, this is a good time to get one of these cards if you haven’t already

If you have gotten these cards recently, try calling in to get matched to the bonus – 2 phone calls netted me 10,000 SPG points!


Speaking of good hotel point offers, the Citi Hilton card is back with a 75,000 point offer

Citi is (for now!) less strict about their signup rules – you can get the signup bonus for this one if you haven’t opened or closed the account in the past 18 months.


Other news of the week
