How to Donate Your Miles and Points to Support Hurricane Florence Victims

I know watching the news stories about the devastation caused by Hurricane Florence can make you feel helpless. The scope of this event just causes you to feel numb and you want to do something but don’t know how you can help.

Luckily, most of the airline and hotel programs are making it easy to contribute in any way you can.

Trying To Get Compensation For Flight Problems

What type of compensation does an airline owe you when things go wrong? While I know plenty about how to book a cheap flight and ways to use points and miles, I fortunately have never needed to worry about this question. That was until My Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Travel Day.

Citi Double Cash Offers $150 Sign Up Bonus and 2% Back On Everything

I love to use the Citi Double Cash card as a standard to compare all other credit cards against. For no annual fee, it earns 2% cash back on all purchases. If you’re not getting this much value from another card, you’d be better off using the Double Cash Card.

Citi has now increased the sign up bonus on the Double Cash card to $150 so if this is a good card for you to get, there’s no time like the present.

Here’s more about it… Continue reading “Citi Double Cash Offers $150 Sign Up Bonus and 2% Back On Everything”
