  1. There used to be a link at the top right side of the page to search specific topics but now it’s disappeared. Any new ways of searching for it?

  2. Thanks for the link to my post: State of the Union: Bluebird, Serve, and Go Bank Reloads at Walmart with Gift Cards as of May 30, 2014

    Hopefully there will be no more changes at Walmart then a small software update to their Point Of Sale (POS) system.

  3. @Gavin, I do know that box is gone, it should be fixed at the beginning of the week, one of the few gremlins from the site switch.

    In the meantime you can use google to search:
    “ search-term search-term search-term”

  4. Gary, you used to have a column on the left side that showed the 5 or 10 most recent comments, it would be nice to have that back too. Helps us to know when someone comments or replies to an older post. More IHG points for stays usually means the price of rewards will be going up shortly?

  5. And to add to DJP’s comments, could you also have a little index on the type of information discussed, such as Citi or Bluebird or trip reports if that isn’t too difficult? Makes searching for links or information a whole lot easier. And unfortunately, the google search isn’t showing the info you typed above. I was looking for the $100 credit on Citi Reserve card but I can hold off on it if the search box is going to be in a few days. Thanks for the great posts as usual.
