The guys are back after a couple of months of work chaos. We get some rambling out of our system and chat about being off-brand before providing few details on how to start our own businesses. Travel? Sure, why not. Greece has a big to-do this Summer, we’ll talk about that and tell you why stay-cations are still a good use of points.  Listen…

News Transcription

As of today, restrictions for US Citizens travelling to Greece would have you in quarantine for 7 days on arrival BUT that’s a few days from expiring. It could always be extedned but maybe some CAUTIOUS Summer planning?  To that end, One of Europe’s oldest festivals is ON for this year. The Athens & Epidaurus Festival celebrates some of the worlds greatest performers in the world of dance, theater and music. The festival has some cool history, it says here that “Up to the year 2005, the Festival was held exclusively at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus in Athens and the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus…” , it’s since expanded to neighboring sites as it grows but the original venues are within an awesome archaeological site with tons of history. Hop to greekfestival.gr if you want to take a look AND Modhop for our recent look at top Greek must-see places.

Host of one of my favorite OTHER podcasts, Miles to Memories’ Mark Osterman. Wrote up a helpful rant about Chase’s recent 10x points-for-dining promotion, noting that you’ll need to use their own dining portal within the Ultimate Rewards website to get the extra points. Ultimately, limiting who you can order from and it’s highly likely not somewhere that you were considering in the first place. He points out that it highlights a disturbing trend of similarly deceiving offers from card issuers so tage a good look at those offers when you get them. Add the Miles to Memories podcast to your cue, their crew hops on a ton of useful points and miles news and tips like that.
