How to Write a Valuable Review


It’s hard to be upset about free miles, and this deal is pretty darn good.

How to Write a Valuable Review

According to the Rewards Network, here’s there guide on writing a review.  Note that “value” isn’t one of their key considerations.

Spill the beans. [Ha, I see what you did there!] We encourage you to be creative in your review and let your personality shine. The most meaningful reviews contain colorful descriptions of the food, service and ambiance. Here are a few tips to help you provide feedback that is the most helpful:

  • Food and Drinks
    After all, it`s what you came for. [And that’s all — except no highly marked up drinks] Be sure to tell us what you liked about what you ordered or your thoughts on the menu. Was that soup just like Grandma used to make it? Tell us about it.
  • Service
    Was the service polite, helpful and efficient? Did your server help make your meal sparkle [No thanks, I would rather not pay the 35% tip expected for sparkling service, thank you very much] by checking in at the appropriate times or anticipating needs?
  • Ambiance
    Tell other diners what you thought of the mood. [Like I care… These things add to the cost, which I do not want] Did it match the food and service? Was it casual enough for a family outing or romantic for a first date?
  • Constructive Feedback
    If your visit was less than perfect, be sure to remain constructive in your review. Avoid using offensive or distasteful comments. Share information you feel would help the owner improve upon future experiences.

One of my key aspirations is to express my creativity through capturing the beauty of nature through photography and videography.  All of the photos on this site were taken by me, The Happy Camper.


Because my wife and I still work for our wage slave masters, while I viciously attack the concept of such servitude in this medium, I will use a pen name and refrain from being directly visible in any of the photos or videos.  This is because “the man” isn’t terribly interested in having people work for them who aren’t in it for the “long haul.”  Just as companies can fire someone when it’s right for them, I reserve the right to quit my job when it’s right for me, and would prefer not to gain any unwanted attention from the overlords until then.
