The Joys of Being Disloyal

To our new friends who may be visiting from Forbes.com, welcome! 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.

  • 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”

Why You Should Sign Up For Hotel Programs Before Booking Your Room

l’ve already posted about how you can sign up for hotel programs and, not surprisingly, I’ve certainly signed up for quite a few. In fact, when I look at AwardWallet, I see that I have accounts with these hotel programs:

  • Starwood Preferred Guest
  • Marriott Rewards
  • Hilton Honors
  • World of Hyatt
  • IHG Rewards Club
  • Le Club Accorhotels
  • Wyndham Rewards
  • Choice Privileges
  • La Quinta Rewards
  • M Life (MGM Resorts)
  • Kimpton Karma Rewards

Have You Checked Your AMEX Offers?

I have to admit, I’ve been a bit lax in looking at my AMEX offers. These offers are one of the best ways to offset the annual fees that many American Express cards charge so ignoring them is like walking away from free money. I checked today and found several offers that I should be able to take advantage of without much effort. I’m also kicking myself because I cost myself money by not checking sooner.  Continue reading “Have You Checked Your AMEX Offers?”
