The Morning Shave

How a $6 Charge Made My Credit Score Drop 100 Points. – Having an excellent credit score is so essential to all we do with cards (not to mention a mortgage, car loan, insurance, a job, etc.).  An excellent reminder to cancel services you don’t use… don’t cancel the card expecting the services to be canceled as well.  Use a service like to help you keep track of subscriptions.

Will Visitors To The U.S. Soon Have To Provide Social Media Passwords to DHS? – You are right, it may seem like a good idea to counter terrorism and extremists, but what happens when other countries retaliate with their own policies?  Not a good scenario for anyone.

Air France Launching Service to the Maldives, Here’s How to Get There on Points. – The Maldives have been on my bucket list for years. Always glad to see more redemption options available to make it finally happen.


Which miles would you redeem to get to the Maldives?


If You Don’t Have Airline Elite Status, Here’s How to Fake It. – Like they always say, fake it until you make it.  I’m pretty sure I’ll never have airline status since I always use miles instead of cash to book flights.  So, I do the same thing… use credit card benefits to stay a step ahead of the masses.  Click here for the best airline credit cards.

A Hint That Marriott May Be Adopting Starwood’s Ambassador Service. – Great news for top-tier Marriott and SPG members.
