There are many things you can do to earn points and miles. Most commonly these are flying on a plane, staying at a hotel or renting a car and it’s up to you to make sure you get credit for all of these activities. Following these tips below will help make sure that you get credit for all the points you deserve:
As I mentioned in a post a while back, Buc-ee’s is a chain of roadside gas and convenience stores located in Texas (soon to be expanding into Florida!) and I just LOVE them! So during our pretty-much-almost-annual visit to New Braunfels to go to Schlitterbahn Water Park & Resort nearly every summer, I make sure we visit Buc-ee’s at least twice (occasionally more). Our visit a couple of weeks ago was no exception.

Every time you choose what hotel to stay at, there’s usually a list of things you want from that hotel. It could be specific amenities, or a particular location or you may be looking for a certain level of service. These things will ultimately lead you to your perfect choice (or the closest thing to perfect you can get).
I’ll admit the list of requirements we had that lead to our first stay at the Candlewood Suites last year, and had us return there this year, were very specific and very, well, “us.” The list included:
In the weeks and months after Labor Day, when the weather starts cooling down in the northeast, vacations to Florida, which stays comparatively warm throughout the winter, start to increase. To keep up with the demand of cars in the Sunshine State, car rental companies have to move a bunch of their autos down to the major cities in Florida, and it’s much more cost effective to have their customers do the transporting that to put them on rail cars and have them shipped down. With that, several companies are offering car rentals from select northeast locations to select Florida locations for just $4.99 per day!

Remember my post about all the travel-related hoax contests and sweepstakes on Facebook, where you could win free cruises, free airline tickets etc.? Well, we just got wind of a sweepstakes JetBlue is running and although it totally looks like a typical hoax, it definitely is not!
I will always give credit where credit is due; whoever in JetBlue’s marketing department thought of this is a genius! They’re taking this Monday’s solar eclipse and using it for the basis of a sweepstakes in the form of a Facebook event! Take a look at this:

One of the big perks of being a frequent flyer with one of the “big three” U.S. airlines (American, Delta and United) is access to their airport lounges. These spaces are a
quite less crowded place to wait for your flight compared to the loud chaos that usually is the norm near the gates. If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to charge your electronics, snack on some cookies or veggies and even treat yourself to something from the bar. Even if the airlines have started to charge for the better snacks and drinks, it’s still better than nothing.
You’d think on your way to a vacation at Disney World or Universal Studios in Orlando from the New York/New Jersey area and decide to take JetBlue that you’re out of luck for getting into an airport lounge before your flight, right? Wrong!
