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!

Gambling With an Edge - guest Joseph Kerr #2

The guest on the show this week is Joseph Kerr. Joseph is an advantage player from Florida. He was on our show two year ago talking about "Advantage Cruising" and now he is back on to talk about gaining advantages on travel by credit card churning.

Tip: Hyatt card status matches to Mlife Gold (Free parking/free valet - as though that crap should be a perk). Those who have the 100k Amex plat targeted offer should certainly take advantage. The 100K points is rare, but Global Entry/TSA Pre is fully reimbursed in addition to essentially never having to pay for a GOOD meal in an airport again (lounges). Oft overlooked benefit is the insurance policy for out of country injury. "If you do have to go into hospital, call us, and we’ll arrange direct settlement of all your treatment fees: up to US$ 2.5 million. As well as pay for those little, but important things which make your stay that bit more comfortable, like books, magazines and flowers." They'll fly anyone you choose to you if you're hospitalized and alone, up to $250 a day plus travel. Pretty nuts.

Travel insurance benefits may not be available for American cards or newer cards, according to a friend w/recently opened platinum account.
