More baggage allowance when you fly Singapore Airlines

Singapore Airlines fliers can enjoy more shopping as the airline increases checked-in baggage allowance beginning November 15, 2013 for all SIA and SilkAir flights.
Checked-in baggage allowances will increase by 10kg for all classes of travel.
Customers will be entitled to free baggage allowances of 50kg in Suites and First Class, 40kg in Business Class and 30kg in Economy Class.

For flights to and from the United States, where a per-piece allowance applies, customers traveling in Suites, First Class and Business Class will be entitled to check in two pieces of luggage of up to 32kg each, up from 23kg previously.
“Increasing baggage allowances across all classes of travel is in response to feedback from our customers and reaffirms our commitment to constantly enhancing customer service,” said SIA Senior Vice President for Sales & Marketing, Mr. Chin Yau Seng.

5 luggage, 30 kilos overweight, no charge :)

KrisFlyer Elite Gold and Star Alliance Gold members will continue to enjoy an additional 20kg of baggage allowance across all travel classes, or one extra piece of checked-in baggage when traveling to or from the United States and Brazil.
Priority Passenger Service (PPS) Club members will also continue to be entitled to double the checked-in baggage allowance in their respective class of travel.

Tried and tested: How to buy iTunes credit online

I can’t live without iTunes credits. Unfortunately I’m down to my last $30 worth of iTunes cards.
I use iTunes to download my favorite TV shows, movies, and music.
But since I don’t travel to the US often, I’m at the mercy of friends and relatives who buy iTunes cards for me when they’re there.
My friends know iTunes cards are the only things I really ask for on birthdays and Christmas.

Thanks for the love!

Luckily my Googling skills led me to a site where I’ve successfully bought iTunes credits: US Gift Codes.
Aside from iTunes cards, you can also purchase Playstation and XBox credits, among others.
The site charges a little bit more on top of the cards’ face value.
Upon purchasing, US Gift Codes will email you scans of the cards so you know they’re legit.

And it works. Here’s the proof of credit I got after purchasing from US Gift Codes.

To contribute to HelpPh, mobile phone subscribers overseas must key-in +63-999-7-000-000 (12-digits) as the beneficiary mobile number and then send their donation using the airtime top-up procedure of their specific mobile network operator.

Through its mobile money subsidiary, SMART has partnered with four leading global mobile airtime transfer companies that include Transfer To, Tranglo, ezetop, and Aryty—which all together cover more than 250 partner mobile network operators in 90 countries.

This mobile collection drive was launched by The Philippine Disaster Recovery Foundation (PDRF) to fund relief and reconstruction programs, in partnership with the Philippine Red Cross, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Caritas Manila, Philippine Business for Social Progress, Gawad Kalinga, the United States Agency for International Development and the GSMA, the global association of the mobile phone industry.
PDRF was organized in 2009 following the devastation caused by Typhoon Ketsana/Ondoy and is made up of major private sector companies and leading NGOs.
