Here are some of the articles I’ve enjoyed this past week from the MoneyBlogNetwork and beyond.

Five Cent Nickel warns that frequent flyer programs are accelerating expirations. Blueprint for Financial Prosperity notes that PayPal is offering security keys for account holders.
Sun points to an FTC report analyzing the most complained-about topics. Money, Matter and More Musing compares the “stop spending” attitude against the “smart spending” attitude.
