I am switching to a dedicated web hosting server this weekend, so you may experience some hiccups with posting comments, but overall this should drastically speed up the site. In the past couple weeks I've gotten way too many "error connecting to the database" messages and several of you have emailed me about errors when posting comments, so I decided to switch to a better host.

I've also added SuperCache which should significantly decrease load time of pages. Big thanks to TPG reader James who emailed me that suggestion. Which leads me to encourage anyone else to email me with any advice on how I can make the site better. I really appreciate constructive feedback and I've made some minor design changes in the past month due to the feedback I've received.

I also want to thank everyone for your support of the site. Readership has been exploding and I love the sense of community with people commenting on posts and sharing their experiences - keep it up!

Thanks for reading and make sure you spread the words to your friends and follow me on Twitter!

How we chose these cards

Our points-obsessed staff uses a plethora of credit cards on a daily basis. If anyone on our team wouldn’t recommend it to a friend or a family member, we wouldn’t recommend it on The Points Guy either. Our opinions are our own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by our advertising partners.
