Longest Uber Ride Ever, Win 500,000 Wyndham Points, Track Santa’s Journey, TSA Blocks Toy Bear At Airport, Shopping & Dining Bonus Offers- The Rehash!

Rehash

We’re now less than a week away from heading off on our next trip. This will be Theo’s first international trip which is pretty exciting. For seasoned traveler Lucas, it will be his 33rd country!

Just a reminder: I hope that all of you look over your credit card statements. You never know what might show up. I was looking over my Chase Ink statement and found a fraudulent charge. Imagine just paying a bill without reviewing what you’re paying! I do it for every bill that I pay and if not, it could’ve been a very costly mistake… Continue reading Longest Uber Ride Ever, Win 500,000 Wyndham Points, Track Santa’s Journey, TSA Blocks Toy Bear At Airport, Shopping & Dining Bonus Offers- The Rehash!

For a limited time you can stop in any DoubleTree Hotel in the U.S. and get a free, warm cookie! Continue reading Get A Free Cookie At A DoubleTree Hotel + Win A Free Night (10 Winners)

This weekend we stayed at The Warwick Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia. The property was formerly the Radisson Blu Warwick. This was our final Club Carlson stay booked with the 2nd night free benefit. It sure felt like the end of an era for hotel bookings although we booked way back in May 2015.

Otherwise, we’re still working on finalizing trip itineraries for a few things coming up. We’re still making decisions on what to do which is holding up the planning a bit… Continue reading Country Inn Gift, 25K Hilton Bonus Points, Woman Opens Emergency Door of Moving Plane, Tenn Hangs Off Carnival Ship, Apple Replacing iPhone Batteries, Lyft Passenger Shot & More- The Rehash

Win A Fathom Cruise to the Dominican Republic

While I’m not a fan of cruises, one newer option has caught my attention.

Fathom is a new brand from Carnival offering impact travel.

They consider impact travel a “whole new category: it’s travel with purpose“. Think giving back during your trip by working with locals in a variety of social projects to help improve community.

Fathom currently offers trips out of Miami to Cuba and the Dominican Republic. Continue reading Win A Fathom Cruise to the Dominican Republic

Trick Or Treat During Flight, 5,000 AA & UA Bonus Offers, $15,000 Mystery Cruise, Theo’s 1st Flight at 7 Weeks Old, Airport Twiter Accounts & More- The Rehash

Rehash

We spent this past weekend in Washington, DC at the third Boarding Area Conference aka BAcon. It was a busy weekend but I wish that I had at least an extra day to spend a little time wandering around the area.

Theo got to fly on his second trip while Lucas sat this one out.

The delays coming and going into LaGuardia are beyond awful. If possible, I’d love to skip flying through the airport until all of the construction is done but I know that this will most likely not be possible!

Trip Report: 7 Hours in Boston

On Wednesday, August 24 I headed to Boston with my brother to fulfill the terms of a promotion to earn 75,000 JetBlue Points.

The cost for the flight was a very reasonable $96.20 to fly roundtrip from Newark Airport. When booking the flight, there was an important decision to make- do we fly directly back and forth or spend some time in the area?

If hotels were cheaper, we may have just spent a night there but we decided to spend 7 hours in Boston. Continue reading Trip Report: 7 Hours in Boston

RehashI have my final summer flight coming up in the middle of this week and it will defintely be the shortest trip I’ve ever taken.

With all of my current credit card’s minimum spends reached I applied for a new card last week which I was approved for after calling in! Once that arrives, I’ll be working on earning the bonus. I’m also thinking of applying for the new Chase Sapphire Reserve (like many of you probably are too) when it comes out.

One of my favorites is the HGTV Fixer Upper show, which features couple Joanna and Chip Gaines amazingly renovating homes in Waco, Texas. Continue reading HGTV Fixer Upper Show’s Renovated Homes Are Hot Vacation Rentals
