What's the story?
We wrote about credit cards for people with bad credit in September, where we talked about secured and unsecured credit cards. One of the best ways to improve bad credit is through responsibly using a credit card. Many people start by applying for a secured card, where they use their own cash deposit as a line of credit. By building credit and showing responsible spending, you can soon graduate to an unsecured credit card that has a lower APR and better benefits.
What's the current Rapid Rewards enrollment promotion code?

I had booked this flight with 7,500 Avios points and $106 in fuel surcharges. Yes, fuel surcharges on these flights are sky-high, but there was no other way for my flight path.
After my scary immigration interview (I felt intimidated enough) I tried to decide which Priority Pass lounge to use. It seems that every lounge at the airport participates.
I decided to go for the MEA SkyTeam Lounge – Beirut is the MEA hub, so I expected great things :)
