This summer Fidelity ditched long-time credit card partners American Express and Bank of America to consolidate its service with Elan Financial Services. Anyone holding a Fidelity credit card received a new Fidelity Visa Signature card from Elan.
In a 48-hour period at the beginning of May I received five surveys.
One paper survey via snail mail with 66 questions to rate my son’s pediatrician. One online survey from a hotel I had stayed at the prior weekend and another from a hotel stay two weeks before. A third online survey from the conference I had just attended, and a fourth one from OpenTable for the restaurant I had dined in the Friday before.
Do you know who Michael Phelps is?
Unless you have been living behind a boulder, you probably do. (I avoid clichés.) The 31-year-old swimming phenom has 22 Olympic medals, 18 of them gold, and has set numerous world records.
Phelps’ main rival, Ryan Lochte, has 11 Olympic medals. Without Phelps present Lochte could be considered the best male swimmer of all time. But he happened to come of age at the same time as Phelps and therefore has an underdog position to him.
In high school I took modern dance classes. In college I took aerobics classes.
On April 20th, as I sat in an auditorium at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, I had my marketing heart stolen.
My son AJ and I were in the process of a 1000-mile tour to revisit three colleges to help him choose one.
Around 8pm I had just connected on LinkedIn with friends from my high school years when one of them wrote, “You need to get on Facebook! We have been posting some old group photos that you are in.”
When he was helping to plan our trip to Paris to celebrate my 40th birthday, he discovered that a major chocolate exhibition was going to be there at the same time. Besides sampling and purchase opportunities, there were multiple exhibits including a replica of a 17th century dress made of chocolate.
For the past year I’ve been immersed in my son AJ’s college search. We’ve visited 11 schools, some of them twice. It’s been fun and one of the funny outcomes is that I have realized that I would be happy to go to college now.
