Prior2Boarding and BoardingArea network (the former is just a part of the latter) bloggers (examples include Travel with Grant, The Frequent Miler)

Mostly about miles, points and deals, just like TPG or MMS you mentioned, but haven't checked them a lot recently.
Citi Forward Visa $5000 10/2012 | American Express Blue Cash Everyday $8000 2/2014 | Discover it $7000 5/2014
Chase Freedom Visa Signature $7000 6/2014 | Citi ThankYou Premier Visa Signature $5000 1/2015
All EMV.

I go to Credit Boards sometimes and have even posted there before. Their Credit Pulls Database is especially valuable and obviously despite the issues MyFico has, there's sometimes useful information there as well. I'll also say that the former site is not something you wanna read if you're afraid to get your feelings hurt. It's just a no nonsense kind of website to me and if you're a newbie there, you really need to have a thick skin IMO.

I've also read TPG and Million Miles Secrets a few times as well as Flyertalk though I've never posted in any of those and I think FatWallet sometimes has CC information too.
Macy's TLs (21k), Lowes (17k), CSP (10k), Sam's Club (10k), Nordstrom (5k), AARP (4.2k), Freedom (3k), Discover (1.5k), Quicksilver (2k), BoA (3k), Barclaycard Arrival (2.5k), Amazon Store (6k), Paypal (4.9k), Sam's Club MC (3.6k), Walmart MC (1.2k)

I like Flyer Talk, which seems to be the best established of that genre. I also get the Points Guy emails. They usually don't matter to me because I'm not a frequent flyer, but there is useful information sometimes. If I flew more, maybe I'd be willing to do there research and jump through all the hoops to maximize miles value. Cash back is the best choice for me now.

myFICO and CreditBoards. I'll hit FlyerTalk from time to time but it's not quite as relevant to me. Bogleheads is kinda the same for me as it's more about finances in general than credit specifically but there are some credit threads there.
