The Morning Shave

TPOL Approved: Marriott Rewards’ MegaBonus Promotion. – I used to do this promo all of the time.  Stay twice and get a free night is a pretty lucrative promotion.

Ten things to know before buying your next airline ticket… – Great post with some really valuable tips that can save you some serious money.



Hacked: My Amtrak Rewards Compromised & Why This Is a HUGE Wake Up Call. – I use a password manager too to keep track of my passwords, which allows me to have even more complex passwords since I don’t have to memorize or use the same password across multiple sites.  And I use services that alert me immediately whenever I book travel or have transactions post to my financial accounts.

Travel Habits of Americans: Gen Xers Lead Hotel-Mobile Bookings Among U.S. Travelers. – Just like the Baby Boomers before them, Gen X and Millennials will alter the course of history in a major way.  Be prepared for change… lots of it.

Non-Travelers Will Now Be Able to Greet Family and Friends at This U.S. Airport. – It is really cool that Pittsburgh has figured out a way to make this happen in today’s world of high security.
