The Morning Shave
Airline Downgraded John Kasich – But He Wouldn’t Leave First Class. – Ugh, and people think that we’re entitled. Totally not cool on his part. I’m glad the airline took care of the displaced passenger.
Surprise! American Express Sends 1099s for Referral Bonuses. – Yes, miles and points do have a monetary value, but most of us are not used to getting taxed on our referrals. And the situation is even worse when the bank assigns a value that is higher than what should be expected. Here are some options to consider when filing your taxes.
These Two Resorts are Redefining Mexico’s All-Inclusives. – Competition for your travel dollar is getting fierce. And Cancun has to work even harder to offset the negative press that it receives in the US. I would love to take my family to Xcaret and explore their water parks, natural habitat, and everything else they have to offer.
Beware: Flight Attendants Hawking Inferior Credit Card Offers. – I tend to ignore the flight attendants’ robotic speeches, but you’re supposed to listen when they discuss the safety procedures. Just like us bloggers, the credit card offers you find may not be the best available. If you’re interested in the card, take the application, then research other options once you have access to wifi.
This Chocolate Company Will Pay You to Travel Across the U.S. & Eat Tons of Free Chocolate. – It’s fun to imagine having one of these jobs where you get paid to travel and sample amazing food. What are the chances of actually getting the job? Zero if you don’t apply. You have until February 12th to submit your resume. What are you waiting for?
