Delta Gold AmEx 70,000 Bonus Miles

posted by The Gopher April 12, 2018 0 comments

Searching for the best Delta Gold AmEx credit card bonus? You found it! 70,000 Bonus Miles and a $50 credit await you, an exclusive offer!

Well my avid readers, the bonus is back and is available to anyone who uses my exclusive referral link! You won’t find this bonus available on the American Express site, only via my exclusive referral link. So here is how this works.

1.) You signup for the American Express Delta Gold credit card via my link.

2.) Spend $2,000 in the first 3 months and you will get 60,000 bonus miles. If you make a Delta purchase of ANY value, a $50 credit will also be applied to your statement.

3.) To sweeten the deal, if you spend another $1,000 in the first 6 months of the card, you will receive an additional 10,000 mile bonus! Not only that, you earn 1 point for every dollar you spend on everyday purchases and 2 points for every purchase made through Delta, this is in addition to this unbelievable signup bonus.

4.) To take advantage of this offer, signup for the American Express Delta Gold credit card by clicking this link.

I love collecting points, especially from my credit cards. They allow me to travel and see some amazing destinations at the fraction of the cost had I paid in cash. One of my favorite cards is the American Express Delta Gold credit card. Since obtaining the card, I’ve reached Platinum Medallion status. Even better, I have flown Delta One (Delta’s first class cabin) ten times now. All within 2 years of obtaining this invaluable credit card.

When I first signed up, I received a 60,000 bonus for spending $4,000 which was fantastic. That alone was worth one round trip ticket in economy class when flying internationally. When I got to the airport, I was upgraded to Delta One at no additional charge. Talk about a great card! Well, that offer didn’t last long and soon the bonus dropped to 30,000 miles, boo.

This new deal is BETTER than when I originally signed up and BEATS the other offers currently available. Other deals require you to spend $3,000 in 3 months and only get 30,000 bonus miles. If you spend that same $3,000 using my exclusive referral link, not only will you get the regular 30,000 bonus miles but an additional 40,000 on top of it. And of course if you make at least one purchase via Delta, you will get a $50 credit card statement credit as well.

Again, this exclusive deal is not available anywhere else. You will not find it in other travel blogs and those deals that you will find will only give you a fraction of the points that my link will provide. If you are lucky, you may find a deal on the American Express website but it will not be as good as this one!

This card is a must have for anyone who loves being treated like royalty from Delta. Priority boarding, access to Delta lounges, access to SkyTeam lounges, no foreign transaction fees, purchase protection, free travel insurance, and even free car rental insurance! This card is a must have for the serious adventurer. It is my go-to credit card that I use anytime I travel abroad due to the amazing perks that come with it. Not only do I save some serious money but I travel for free more often too.

So what are you waiting for? Your free vacation of your dreams is waiting, sign up today before this offer expires! Share http://refer.amex.us/KRISTLhagw with your friends to get a bonus of your own after you signup for the card.

Divorce and Visa Situation in Germany

posted by The Gopher July 17, 2017 0 comments

Surprise surprise, my wife is a slut! Surprised? I’m not, she pulled the same shit before we were married but I was too dumb to realize, “once a cheater, always a cheater”. So you live and Germany as an Ausländer and the visa you have is tied to the person you are now divorcing. How screwed are you? It depends. If you have an Niederlassungserlaubnis, you should be fine, it’s permanent residency after all. If you are an unfortunate person like myself stuck on a Aufenthaltserlaubnis, it’s time to switch to a different visa!

Have kids with your German wife? Stop here, you are fine regardless, anchor babies for the win!

Are you on Hartz IV? Your’re screwed, start packing your bags.

Are you a student? You might be screwed, switch to a student visa ASAP (there are some odd requirements, mainly money available and sitting in a German bank account)

Are you employed? You should be fine, just make sure you get your company to sponsor you. If you make less than the requirements, you may be screwed. Working as a stock-boy at Rewe may mean you might be out of here real soon.

Are you self-employed? You might be screwed, depends on how much you make. Governments love tax dollars, the more you make, the safer you are. The safe formula is your basic cost of living (rent + utilities + health insurance + 300 euros).

The main point is if you are facing the prospect of a divorce in Germany and want to stay (why wouldn’t you right? the only bad thing about the country was your significant other anyway), is depending on your situation, you may be okay, you may not. Best advice is consult an immigration attorney. Since Germany doesn’t really believe in free market capitalism like the rest of us, most lawyer fees are capped unless you waive that (why would you?!). You’re looking at about 500 euros for them to fix your situation. Of course that is assuming you have a job, have health insurance and all the other requirements your previous spousal visa required. If you are from the EU, this is all moot, you have the right to live and work here automatically. This post is mainly for us poor saps from the countries outside the EU. Speaking German is absolutely CRUCIAL. If you can’t get by without your significant other, step up your game IMMEDIATELY.

Personally, I have not consulted an immigration attorney. I am one of those people that always manages somehow. Being self-employed has it’s benefits for sure but most do not have that luxury. I also speak enough Deutsch to communicate effectively (I am in no ways fluent but have been down the government red tape aisle many times).

The key is not to panic, well unless you are dirt poor and sucking off the government’s teet, it might be time to panic.

Best advice is if you are close to eligibility to a Niederlassungserlaubnis, stall. Stall stall stall. I was unfortunate, because I was only recently declared self-employed, I didn’t get it but I did get a 3 year extension of my visa. Technically, I should switch to a self-employment visa but the pencil pushers at the Ausländerbehörde are so overworked because of the refugee crises, I slipped through the cracks when I moved out as I imagine most do. If you have kept your nose clean and manage to extend your visa another 3 years, you should go unnoticed, especially in bigger cities. By time you hit 5 years and are making a living income (see the formula above), the Ausländerbehörde will grant you a Niederlassungserlaubnis regardless.

Oh, and if you married someone that cheated on you before, she will do it again. it’s not a question of if but rather when. If you want to stay here, learn German, get a job, get insurance, stay out of trouble and aim for bigger cities because like I said, the pencil pushers just don’t have enough time to worry about a clean cut person from the West.

2017 mytaxi €20 promotional code topher.laz

posted by The Gopher March 24, 2017 0 comments

This is a cross post from a friend’s site, the original posting can be found at http://www.expatriatetopher.com/2017/03/24/2017-mytaxi-20-euros-promo-code/ I in no way get a commission, this is purely to assist those looking for a promo code that actual works for mytaxi.

I usually don’t do this but living in Europe where Uber is few and far between is hard.

I found an app fairly similar to Uber called mytaxi, www.mytaxi.com. When you first sign up, use promo code topher.laz and you will get a €20 credit towards your first ride. I only get €10 for referring you but still, it’s something! Wanted to share this because I just used mytaxi to get from the airport to the hotel and search high and low for a promotional code and could not find one. Hopefully this helps someone, again the promo code for a €20 credit towards your first ride is topher.laz

It is always a pain being in a new city and trying to figure out transportation but it seems mytaxi is in a lot of the larger European cities. I used it in Rome just today and highly recommend it.

How to become a fugitive the right way

posted by Nate June 25, 2016 0 comments

Charged with a crime? I won’t bullshit you, if you don’t come from a well-off family, you’re probably screwed. The public defenders offices in the United States are overburdened and underfunded. Your best bet is taking a plea deal, if you go to trial, you will lose, guilty or innocent, it’s how the system is. America has become a country that profiteers off people like you and me. The good news is you have a choice other than going to trial or taking a plea deal. When you don’t like how the table is set, turn over the table!
