This week on PointsHoarder

The latest episode of our podcast is out once again and I figured it was probably worth sharing that and some of the other stories which made headlines over there recently.

PointsHoarder 16: We killed that deal discussion!

So, who is to blame when a deal dies? That debate is all the rage these days and it seems that the discussions quickly lead to rage, at least amongst some participants. There’s money to be made – LOTS of money – from credit card sign-ups and many bloggers are big in that space these days. But are they to blame for deals ending abruptly? After all, if they kill a deal then they stop making money because the deal they’re “selling” is dead. It is an interesting situation and one that we take a rather calmer approach to discussing.

Also of interest (I think):

  1. I loved this episode! I don’t get all worked up about deals coming and going myself, but it was really interesting to hear about the business side of travel hacking blogs.

  2. I listened to the podcast from the singapore lounge. I was disappointed that you guys didn’t detail the cpm or tricks used to book the mile run. As an aspiring churner, frequent traveler myself, I would like to learn from the experts. I love the podcast. Keep up the good work.
