I have two distinct lives. One in the trenches of low-budget film and television, the other in professional gambling. Because of the feast-or-famine nature of show business I need a reliable income... gambling. So here you will read about both worlds. Enjoy!

Loved both of the shows with Cartwright. A couple of questions:

1) Is the process of buying Visa gift cards and then using them to pay off the credit card debt still viable? Or did the 2013 law change that?

2) Cartwright had mentioned that he would give a list of websites, but never got around to that during the show. Any way to get that here or on a future podcast?

Thanks!

1. Yes it is still viable. The key is that Visa gift cards can be used as Debit cards. You can fund Amex Serve & Bluebird accounts with them, though some issuing banks won't work.

3. flyertalk.com, frequentmiler.boardingarea.com, www.doctorofcredit.com, there are lots. Flyertalk is the main forum.
