How To Get Rid Of That Unwanted Holiday Gift & Earn 500 Points Or Miles In The Process

Every once in a while you’ll get that holiday gift where you wonder, “What was (s)he THINKING?” Or it’ll be from that co-worker who you know wasn’t thinking, period. But there you are, stuck with that apple shaped cigarette lighter or a green scarf with hand painted purple frogs on it. (BTW, the cigarette lighter was a 100% true story – my father [who still smoked at the time] bought my mom one of those for her birthday once. She had quit smoking 4 years previously. No lie! Boy, was she mad, LOL!)

Marriott vs. Hilton: This Is One Less Thing I Need To Worry About

I spend a fair amount of time each week reading various websites. I scan through reviews of hotels and airlines that I’ll never fly on and credit cards I’ll never apply for. I see information about how to earn bonus points by purchasing something I don’t need from a place I can’t shop (because that store isn’t around where I live). That part only takes up a small bit of my time, as I’ve gotten better at ignoring things that don’t apply to me. I’ll read articles about special offers, way to save money when booking travel and how to best use my miles and points. I’ll also save posts that sound interesting and hold them for later. That’s where I find many of the things I put in the Posts We Like article each weekend.

It’s not unusual to see many different websites all writing about a big story but this week I found articles from several websites all writing about each other’s articles.
