What is a Virtual Credit Card? 8 Reasons Why You Need One. – Virtual credit cards used to be super popular, but their usage (and advertising by the banks) seems to have fallen off over the last decade. With so much cyberhacking, they are becoming more popular again. I highly recommend using them when shopping online.
Disney’s version of dynamic pricing could be just the ticket. – This new pricing could be a big benefit for people with flexibility, but if you’re traveling during peak times (weekends, holidays, Spring Break, summer), you better buy your tickets now before those prices increase.
What’s Worse Than a TSA Pat Down? Actually Working for TSA. – People on vacation are usually happy. However, one thing that just about everyone hates is going through the TSA security checkpoint. It’s slow. It’s invasive. And totally annoying. Even though we hear plenty of horror stories, the vast majority of these workers are nice people who are just trying to do their jobs. Keep that in mind the next time you go through security. Smile. Say hello. And have your ID and boarding pass ready.
Delta CEO Declares Free In-Flight Wi-Fi Is Coming. – This is going to be awesome, except when it is incredibly slow because everyone is trying to use it at once. If they can figure out the bandwidth constraints, this is a total game-changer.

I doubt I’ll ever hold Elite Status with AA, so I have two choices – hope that my flight isn’t canceled or book premium class flights. Ugh! Not cool.
