The Morning Shave
850 FICO: Do you really need the highest credit score? – An 850 FICO may sound great, but it is really overkill. Anything over 760 won’t improve the interest rates you receive, the terms you get, or the benefits from your credit cards. It’s a good article to understand how to improve your credit and how your actions affect your credit score.
The Real Trick to Scoring Super Cheap Airfare. – The biggest takeaway is that you can save a ton of money by being flexible with your days of week, time of day, and time of year that you travel. I keep a top 10 list of places we want to visit and evaluate them each year to figure out which one is most cost-effective to visit based on our preferred travel dates.
Why I Did Not Go Into the Blue Lagoon in Iceland. – Plain and simple, it is a unique tourist trap. I like to enjoy experiences when I travel that I just can’t find elsewhere. But the author has a point that it is quite expensive and can get crowded. He hinted at sharing another spot that he liked better, so I’ll be sure to look for that one.
Should Very Tall Passengers Be Forced To Pay For Seats With More Legroom? – If large people should purchase two seats to sit comfortably due to their width, I don’t see why tall people shouldn’t also buy seats that can accommodate their height. But, I can agree that airline seats are too close even for average-height people like me.
Dallas Love Field the fastest-growing U.S. airport. – Hopefully, this means that some airport lounges will be added in the future. I recently flew through Love Field and had a 3-hour layover. Normally, that would equate to awesome times at an airport lounge with my Priority Pass or Amex Platinum, but Love Field doesn’t have any lounges, so I was stuck in the terminal. <<womp, womp>>
