The Morning Shave

Have a Virgin America Account? Don’t Forget to Claim 10,000 Alaska Miles for Everyone in Your Family – Strangely enough, my daughter Scarlett received the email for 10,000 Alaska miles, but the rest of us didn’t.  I’m working to get the remaining 30,000 Alaska miles we should have received

Cheap Flights To South America! Machu Picchu For Less Than $500 – Dang!  I keep booking too many vacations far in advance, so I rarely have enough vacation time left over for super cheap deals like this.  Goal for 2018… leave at least 1 week of vacation for last-minute deals.


I would love to visit Machu Picchu


More Airports Starting to Charge Drivers Who Are Dropping Off Passengers – Makes me think that the taxis are lobbying the airports to make it more expensive for Uber and Lyft (use my links to get $10 or more off your next ride).

Earn 2,000 Bonus Hilton Points on Every Hotel Night! – I don’t pay for hotel rooms very often, but it makes sense to register for all promos, even if you don’t have current plans to use them.

Chase Dumps Sapphire Reserve Pre-Approvals – You just knew this was going to end sometime.  I waited too long to jump on the in-branch opportunity.  So, will have to wait awhile since I’m way over 5/24 with all of my App Party activity

Wyndham All-Inclusive Hotels With Points – Wyndham is a program that’s not on most people’s radars.  Now that they introduced a “one-size-fits-all” pricing of 15,000 points per night, there is some great value in redeeming for their higher-end properties.
