JetBlue Giving TSA PreCheck To Mosaic Members!

TSA PreCheck

Long security lines at US airports have been a major issue and topic of conversation for some time now.

Many are pointing fingers at the TSA for not effectively doing its job. The TSA recently said that they would be spending $28 million for more screeners.

While nobody likes to spend extra money, it seems that these long waits are also costing the airlines so they too have been trying to help to make their flyers move through security quicker.

One way to save time is by having TSA PreCheck. Continue reading JetBlue Giving TSA PreCheck To Mosaic Members!

Times Square is an area in NYC that I try my best to avoid.

With an abundance of bright lights and costume characters, there’s also no shortage of mega-stores like M&Ms World, Hershey’s Chocolate World, Disney Store, a giant Toys R Us with a ferris wheel inside.

Food options aren’t great in the area and I’d recommend trying the amazing onion soup burger at Le Rivage which is a short walk away.

If you’re a fan of breakfast, specifically cereal and you’ll be near Times Square you’ll soon have an interesting place to dine. Continue reading Kellogg’s Cereal Restaurant Opening in NYC

Kim, Lucas and I have enjoyed staying at some Airbnb properties over the years. Our first time using the service was back in 2012 when Lucas was around 7.5 months old. (Check out my review of the stay here.)

What I also like about Airbnb are all of the different kinds of places you can stay! There are many unique Airbnb options, like igloos and tents. You can also spend a night in celebrity homes, castles, yurts or pubs.

Earlier in the year I thought that Kim may have come across the most artsy and unique Airbnb property. Continue reading Stay In A Bargain Airbnb in NYC for $39 Per Night!

During a Delta flight flying from Atlanta to Phoenix, a medical emergency took place and many passengers got involved to help the man out.

One of those passengers who pitched in was former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow.

(The last time that I heard a story about an athlete helping out during a flight was when former Mets pitcher LaTroy Hawkins helped subdue an unruly passenger.) Continue reading Tim Tebow Pitches In During Medical Emergency During Flight

Filipino Chain Jollibee Coming To NYC

Jollibee

Last week I wrote about Jollibee, a fun food recommendation from Anthony Bourdain.

Jollibee is a Filipino fast food chain which some might consider the McDonald’s of the Philippines. While there are over 30 locations in the US, most are located on the West Coast (primarily in California).

The Michael W Travels family lives in Brooklyn, NY so we visited the Jollibee located in Queens. However, our options to dine at the chain will soon be increasing! Continue reading Filipino Chain Jollibee Coming To NYC

Last year an Uber driver got harassed by an NYPD detective after he let the cop know that he wasn’t using his signal when parking.

The incident was captured on video by the passenger in the back of the Uber. The video got over 4.5 million views on YouTube. It also has led to the driver Humayun Chaudry feeling “humiliated“, according to Gothamist. Continue reading Uber Driver Suing NYPD Detective For Harassment

My first summer trip with Lucas is fast approaching, about two weeks away. The plans for that trip are pretty much all taken care of. Now it’s time to start working on planning the details of our other summer plans.

This JetBlue points match offer that The Points Guy wrote about is getting lots of attention. I’m now debating whether or not to go for it but there isn’t much time left to decide.

How has your week gone in miles, points and travel? Continue reading Jollibee, Apple Maps Feature, Actress Outburst on Plane, Tourist at Yellowstone Fined, Bourdain Market Delay, Contests, Bonus Offers & More- The Rehash!
