How To Get An Upgraded Hotel Room 100% Of The Time

Over the years I’ve developed a way to get an upgraded room at a hotel every time that I’ve used it. It’s so easy that I’m hesitant to share it with you but as our readers, you deserve it.

To get an upgraded room every time all you have to do is……….. pay for it. 😉

What, were you expecting some magic system? Maybe a code word or secret handshake that only internet bloggers know about? Well yeah, that would be pretty cool. And don’t get me wrong, according to the internet there are a million different ways for you to score an upgraded room. Here’s a list of some of the most commonly shared “secrets”: Continue reading “How To Get An Upgraded Hotel Room 100% Of The Time”

The Company That’s Saving Lives With Leftover Hotel Soaps

Have you ever wondered what happens to the bars of soap that get left behind after you leave your hotel room? I always figured the open bars went to the garbage dump and the wrapped bars were left for the next guest. Well, that’s not necessarily the case, and in this society of trying to replace waste with recycling, that’s a great thing! It turns out there’s a company IN MY OWN FLIPPIN’ BACKYARD that’s collecting bunches of those soaps, melting them, and turning them into new bars of soap to give to people and countries in need.

A Trip To The Neon Museum Is A Must See In Las Vegas

When we knew we were going to visit Las Vegas last fall, we asked our readers about places we should visit and Mary Lee C. mentioned that we should visit The Neon Museum. Located just a short distance from the classic Las Vegas hotels on Fremont Street, the museum, founded in 1996, is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to collecting, preserving, studying and exhibiting iconic Las Vegas signs for educational, historic, arts and cultural enrichment. Besides that, they have a big bunch iconic neon Las Vegas signs on their lot and Mary Lee knew that was right in our tacky tourist sweet spot.

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?”

How I Got Over My Fear Of Staying At A Timeshare Resort And Now I Love Them

Timeshare. Just saying the word evokes an image of a swarthy salesperson who’s going to try to get you to buy part of a hotel building that you can stay at for the rest of your life, and pay yearly dues for that privilege. I’ve actively avoided staying at any timeshare during our trips because I didn’t want the uncomfortable dance to avoid the sales pitch. Full disclosure: we own a part of Disney Vacation Club, a Disney timeshare. It’s one of the least sleazy and most respectable ones out there. If you go for a tour, there’s no high pressure sales pitch. In fact, here’s Mommy Points description of when she went for a DVC tour just to get a Disney gift card and some extra FastPasses.
