  1. Why on earth is American Airlines using the graph of the decline in their stock price as a defining decorative element?

  2. Good one NinLa! I was thinking more along the lines of, “is this a seasonal uniform for Halloween?”

  3. In Australia, Citi stoped (or reduced) giving points on many spends years ago. Most credit card issuers followed suit. It is now rare when a card issuer gives the same points to government-related expenses as it does to other spends.

    Paying any form of tax (income, property, etc), utility bills (electricity, gas, etc), and even council expenses (parking fines, etc) either do not earn any points whatsoever or a fraction of what other expenses (groceries, etc) do.

    Can I finish by saying, SAD! 😉
