Looking for a travel credit card – Canada Message Board – TripAdvisor

So i’m looking for a new travel credit card. Thinking of going back to Aeroplan. Anyone using it now? Is it getting any easier to book flights?

I saw a nice intro offer for the TD Aeroplan Infinite card, no fee first year, 25K miles (plus 5K with authorized user, and double bonus points in first 90 days. There was also no minimum spend with this offer. 25K is a free flight to anywhere in North America return. With no annual fee, and no minimum spend, is this as free as i think it is? Is Aeroplan still worth it? I fly mostly Montreal to Florida.

I saw the bonus offer here: greedyrates.ca/blog/…

I built a Twitter bot that entered—and won—1,000 online contests for me — Quartz

This is the story of how I wrote a Twitter bot to automatically enter contests and ended up winning an average of four contests per day, every day, for about 9 months straight.

If you’ve ever used Twitter, you’ve probably seen a tweet that looks something like this:

Maybe you’ve actually retweeted it, maybe not, but everyone wants to know: does anyone ever win those contests? To discover the answer to that question, I wrote a Python script that logs into Twitter, searches for tweets that say something along the lines of “retweet to win!” and then retweets them. I’m not sure if anyone else has done this before, but I didn’t see any evidence of other bots that were behaving like mine. I did however see evidence of real people who were manually doing the job of my bot by retweeting hundreds of contests over several hours.

10 Types of Businesses You Can Build After 5 p.m.

That daytime job of yours may be terrific. But there’s one thing that is far more rewarding and meaningful than good pay and benefits: being your own boss.

Related: Need a Business Idea? Here are 55

Still, think carefully before choosing to go down the entrepreneurial path; it carries a lot more risk than punching in for your daily 9-to-5, and it requires a lot more sacrifice and hard work. However, once you’re finally reaping the benefits of owning your own business and hustling your way to more money, the sweat and tears you invested will have all been worth it.

Nor do you have to quit your day job in order to get started: five o’clock may mean happy hour or video games for some, but for a growing number of professionals, it means shutting down the computer at the office and firing up that business at home.

So, if you’re game, you next have to select what kind of business you want to start. Which type is right for you? Here are 10 great ideas you can build from:

A teenager explains how to make money trading sneakers – Yahoo Finance

First, get a bot. Then, study up on the most popular celebrity-backed brands. And get on the notification list for the latest limited-edition releases from Nike, Adidas and the like.

This is how to start trading sneakers, if you’re into that kind of thing. And a lot of people—well, teenagers—are. “You can definitely build a business out of this,” 17-year-old Robert Newman (who happens to be my son) tells me in the video above. “You can make hundreds of dollars in a few days.”

Bots—automated software applications that can place online sneaker orders the moment they go on sale—are important because certain sneaker releases have become highly orchestrated events meant to maximize viral hype and turn shoes into collectibles owned only by a lucky few. Manufacturers often produce limited quantities of sneakers bearing names like Jordan, Kobe or Yeezy (Kanye West’s tie-in with Adidas). Deliberate scarcity essentially creates a secondary market for sneaker traders, since many people who want a desired pair can’t buy them retail.

My first thought was that this is a scam. He is trying to sell us something, or whatever. But in fact, “The Stradman” is just a regular guy who really likes cars, and he wanted to share this money making tip with his subscribers on YouTube.

Basically, figure out which kind of car is popular in your area. Then try to find that car in another city at a cheaper price.

Inside the risky world of credit-card churning: How people use reward programs to get endless free perks | Financial Post

Miller is a credit-card churner, one of thousands of people who pry travel, cash, and other perks from credit-card rewards programs. Their common traits are a keen eye for deals and an obsessive determination not to pay when they can make somebody else pay for them. They meet up online to share strategies, including in a Reddit forum with 42,000 subscribers, double the number a year ago, and contribute to dozens of blogs on the subject.

Churners can be secretive about their hobby, worried that its growing popularity will cause the card companies to turn off the flow of freebies. “There’s a fear that the more people who know about it, the sooner the deal is going to get killed,” says Miller, 40. But the basic idea is to take out credit cards simply for their rewards, squeeze as many perks as possible out of each one, and then move on to the next, often accumulating dozens of cards in the process.
