Lufthansa First Class

Lufthansa First Class Ducks are highly collectible yet hard to come by since you can only get them at the First Class Lounge & Terminal. You could also purchase them on sites like eBay or ask a friend that has multiples to give you one!

Every week @Lufthansa_FCT runs a contest on Twitter, giving away a duck to one lucky winner. Continue reading Enter For A Chance To Win A Lufthansa First Class Duck!

Can You Cancel an American Express Card through Live Chat?

American Express Card

Whenever I cancel a credit card, I usually call in first to see if there is some sort of retention offer. However, I’ve been a bit busy and didn’t want to waste time on the phone.

The annual fee posted for my Delta SkyMiles Business American Express Card and I definitely didn’t want to pay the $95 fee.

I logged onto to Amex account and figured I’d give the live chat a try. Continue reading Can You Cancel an American Express Card through Live Chat?

Oddfellows Ice Cream

If you enjoy ice cream and live in or are visiting NYC, you might have a problem. With so many great options, it might be hard to decide where to go for your frozen dessert fill.

It’s hard to pick a favorite, but some of our top picks  (in no particular order) are Ample Hills, Blue Marble, Davey’s, Van Leeuwen and OddFellows Ice Cream. You also can’t go wrong by ordering a cone from a Mister Softee truck!

Many of the shops mentioned have interesting and creative flavors with OddFellows Ice Cream probably making some of the oddest. Continue reading Review: Limited-Time OddFellows Ice Cream Carnival in NYC

rehash

Towards the end of the week the Michael W Travels family will be heading off on a 5 week trip around the Pacific. Kim, Lucas and Theo will visit 5 island nations while I’ll be visiting an additional one. (I’ll post more about our trip later in the week.)

Planning this trip has been a ton of work but my guess is that it will be well worth it once we’re there! Without the help of miles and points this trip would not be possible!
