Chase offers two personal credit cards that are marketed to those who want to earn travel rewards. There’s the Sapphire Preferred, which is great for those getting into the points and miles world, offering transferrable points to both airline and hotel programs and bonus points for travel and dining expenses. The newer Sapphire Reserve is the luxury card for the Ultimate Rewards program. It has a higher annual fee but offers additional benefits than the Preferred.
When I wrote that I was considering getting rid of all my premium cards, the one that people seemed to be the most attached to was the Sapphire Reserve. They pointed out the reasons it’s worth paying the extra money over the Preferred, some of which I was aware of and some that I wasn’t.
So I decided to take a closer look at the two cards and see where they are the same and where they differ. Only then could I really know if the extra money for the Reserve is worth it.

After all that planning, you’re finally on that trip of your dreams, far away from your home country. Your keep your passport handy during your actual travels because you’ll need it for Customs and other travel-related things.

A while back we posted about a company you can use while traveling so you can safely store your luggage for a few hours. It sounded like a great idea, except for the fact that it was only limited to 3 cities around the world.
Luggage Hero has since expanded to 6 cities (still NYC, London, and Copenhagen but now also Madrid, Lisbon and Barcelona), but we’ve found another company that gives you a place to store your stuff for the day that has availability virtually all over the world.

So a new app came out not all that long ago. It’s called Sexy Lingo and, based on the name alone, it shouldn’t be surprising that it’s powered by, you guessed it, YouPorn. Yes, THAT YouPorn.
The goal of the app, which is free, is to learn how to talk, flirt and, *cough,* go beyond that, in your choice of 4 languages, with four progressive themes of interactive lessons.
I guess this way if you’re from an English-speaking country and you’re in France or Brazil or Mexico, you can have a conversation with that hot person across the room and go beyond “Le stylo est bleu” (the pen is blue), “O menino é feliz” (the boy is happy) or “Me gusta el queso” (I like cheese).
Anyway, in the name of research, after making sure my VPN was turned on and working, I set up an ID on the site. Here’s what it was like – and no worries…I promise I will keep it all squeaky clean ;-).
