The Morning Shave

Get Points Back on your Marriott and Starwood Reservation. – A reminder that you should always re-check your hotel award reservations.  Hotel categories change all the time… and not always for the worse.  Sometimes you can save points by re-booking at the new lower price.

Seven Must-Try Ice Cream Parlors. – You had me at ice cream.


Ice cream makes any day better.


My 7 Tips for Using Award Booking Services. – I used an award booking service for my trip to Italy.  I saved a bunch of money and had a better itinerary vs. the options that I found on my own.

Should You Pay Your Taxes By Credit Card? – Generally, the fees are more than the points you will earn.  However, this is a great option if you’re trying to hit a minimum spend.

The 20 Places Every American Should See. – There are only 4 that I haven’t been to.  How about you?

WEIRD Foreign Laws You’d Better Know! – Most of these are common sense, while others are just silly.  I really like the ones that respect historic treasures.
