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.

How DO The Fountains at The Bellagio Work, Anyway?

If you’ve gone to Las Vegas in the past decade or two, you’ve undoubtedly seen the famous, iconic fountains in front of the resort, luxury hotel and casino called the Bellagio. Running every 15 to 30 minutes depending on season and time and day of the week, the fountains have enthralled visitors since the hotel’s opening in (are you ready to feel really old?) 1998. The fountains have been there for almost 20 years – have you ever wondered how they work?

Hotel Review: Hilton Grand Vacations On Paradise (Convention Center)

Las Vegas was the one place on our Southwest trip that I had the most problems in planning. There’s so much do to there and so many hotel choices that it was dizzying. I wrote a whole article about my decision making process and why I ended up booking a room at the Delano with AMEX Fine Hotel and Resorts program.

I had every intention of checking our the rooftop bar during our stay.

So why did I throw all of those plans away and change hotels at the last minute?
