We are Joe and Sharon and we’re a married couple, originally from the northeast (he’s from Linden, NJ, she’s originally from Brooklyn, and then Staten Island, NY) but now living in Orlando, Florida. Joe is the one who is majorly into the points and miles and he writes most of our articles that have to do with miles, points, credit cards, airlines, hotels, tricks of the trade, etc. Sharon is the proofreader and tends to write the more diverse entries.

And now on to our post about the joys of being disloyal:

When it comes to making travel reservations, I’m disloyal. There, I said it and, truth be told, I get a bit of a thrill in making that statement. You see, I’m an Eagle Scout. Therefore, loyalty is part of the deal. Right here, second on the list behind being trustworthy.

00000460 - Version 2A Scout is:

  • Trustworthy,
  • Loyal,
  • Helpful,
  • Friendly,
  • Courteous,
  • Kind,
  • Obedient,
  • Cheerful,
  • Thrifty,
  • Brave,
  • Clean,
  • and Reverent.

So why am I not loyal when it comes to my travel? Simply stated, I don’t travel enough to Continue reading “The Joys of Being Disloyal”

Negative Changes To The Citi Prestige Trip Delay Coverage

The Citi Prestige Trip Delay Coverage had been the best option available from all the different travel credit cards. If your flight was delayed more than three hours, the Citi Prestige would pay for up to $500 in expenses for things like meals, taxi/Uber charges, hotel and travel essentials. Towards the end of 2017, the coverage parameters were changed where you were no longer able to put in a claim for a missed connection. Previously if you missed a connecting flight and were stranded overnight, you could make a claim. Now your original flight had to be delayed more than three hours before you could get any reimbursement. That was a enough of a change to the coverage for me to reevaluate the usefulness of the coverage but then earlier this year Citi sent an email telling of even bigger changes that were coming. These changes took effect for travel booked on or after July 29, 2018.

How Our Friends Flew From The US To All 3 Disney Parks In Asia Without Winning The Lottery

Going to see the Disney Theme Parks in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Tokyo are bucket list trips for many Disney fans. However most people never try to make the trip because it seems out of reach to them. The excuses that people most often give is that the flights are too long or the airfare is too expensive.

When I saw a post on Facebook from one of my friends saying that he and his wife just returned from Japan, I commented that I was so happy for them. I know they’re big Disney fans and I was thrilled they got to see Tokyo Disney. We talked a bit and I discovered that, in fact, they just returned from an epic 10 day trip where they visited all three of the Disney theme parks in Asia. On top of that, all their flights were booked with miles and they flew exclusively in business and first class the whole way. #FTW

It’s with his permission that I’m now going to share how they were able to go on this trip and pay almost nothing out of pocket for airfare. I’m quiet jealous of some of the flights they took, and am remembering that Sharon and I still haven’t been to Hong Kong or Shanghai.
