The Morning Shave

Uber drivers in California can now set their own rates on select airport pickups. – Be careful when booking rideshare pickups in California. At select airports, drivers can set their own rate and boost fares in 10% increments up to 5 times the original price set by Uber. If you haven’t tried Lyft yet, now may be the time. Use my Lyft referral link to get $5 in additional credits in your new account.

The Coolest Amenities You Can Get When Flying Economy. – I love traveling, even if it means slumming it in Economy class. While I love splurging on miles and points to fly Business or First Class, Economy isn’t always a bad experience. This article details some really cool perks available to those of us who stay frugal while traveling.

The One Move That Helped Eliminate $40,000 in Student Loan Debt. – I’m very proud of being able to pay off my student loan debt and sharing the story in this article. Anna and I have been working to pay off hers as well. Super excited to announce that we paid off her SoFi student loan yesterday! If you have student loans, check out SoFi to see how much you can save. You’ll get a bonus when your loan is approved by using my link.

U.S. Citizens Will Need to Register to Travel to Europe Starting in 2021. – If you’re like me and are already thinking of where to travel next year, take notice. Starting January 1, 2021, Americans traveling to the 26 members of Europe’s Schengen Zone will have to register ahead of time or risk being turned away at the border. It isn’t technically a visa, but pretty darn close. You can apply online, pay a 7 euro fee and get your ETIAS authorization within a few hours. Thanks to my friend Nancy for sharing this article.

U.S. will redefine ‘service animals’ flying with their owners on flights. – It’s about time this ridiculousness was put to an end. There are some people that have a legitimate need, but others just want to travel with their pets. I think anyone with a real need should be able to get the proper authorizations and paperwork to qualify going forward.
