The other day I was looking in my wallet and currently there are 6 cards inside of it. Although, I do not mind carrying 6+ cards at a time to maximize my earnings, but sometimes it would be nice to carry less and still earn plenty of points. Then I wondered “what if,” you could […]
A couple of weeks ago, Kristin saw she had 4 days off in a row around the new year and that never happens! I was scheduled to work, but thanks to some awesome colleagues I was able to make a few changes to have the time off as well. We wanted to go away and […]
I’m all about saving money, either on my travel or my day-to-day living. I try to maximize all my rewards, as I am sure most of you try to do. Even with a wallet full of different cards, I think everyone should have an American Express card for this one reason: American Express Offers. These […]
It is that time of year again where holiday shopping is in full swing. If you shop online, this could mean earning extra cash back or points/miles with a few extra clicks. I think if you are shopping online, this is a must, because it is so easy to do. How do you get these […]
One of the best domestic perks you can have is the Southwest Companion Pass. If you play your cards right, you could have 2 years of travel for half the cost. I have thought this has been too easy to earn, although I won’t complain. With all the recent changes, SPG being bought by Marriott, […]

I initially wasn’t going to write a review on my flight from Boston to Budapest, but after thinking about it I felt I should. We flew coach on Lufthansa (which I keep stumbling over the name!) and this was my first Trans-Atlantic flight.
This booking was a doozy! The initial booking was very easy, inexpensive and was close to the Prague Castle. For $189 for 2 nights, I felt it was a no brainer, especially since I was going to clear the entire charge off with my Barclay Arrival bonus (cost 17,010 miles, after 10% rebate). I messaged the […]
During our Europe trip, I booked 2 stays using Airbnb, one in Budapest and another in Prague. This was the first time we had used Airbnb and we had some mixed results. After Europe, would I use Airbnb again? This is a 2 part review, one for each city we stayed in. At the end […]
Back in July, I decided to convert my Chase Sapphire Preferred to the Chase Freedom. This left us with 2 Chase Freedom’s and 2 Chase Ink Cash as our Ultimate Reward earning or cash back earning cards. At the time, I was still on my cash back kick and the fee on the Sapphire Preferred […]
