10,000 Mega Points At Select Radisson Hotels

Club Carlson is probably my favorite hotel brand due to a bunch of reasons. From their diversity of brands, price points, solid customer service and great perks from their credit card, their hotels seem to be the ones we frequent most.

Kim and I (as well as many of you) have found tremendous value and saved lots of money staying at Club Carlson properties. (Again, that amazing credit card offering Bonus Award Nights- book 2+ nights and hour second night is free!)

Lets’s not forget about their generous promos… Continue reading

Rehash

At the end of this week we’ll be leaving on our first trip of the new year so it was about time that I finally finished getting all of the details worked out.

It was also a good week for manufactured spend, something I haven’t done in quite some time. I loaded my Amex Target REDcard a couple of times in the past few days and boy was it a breeze! (I need to thank the people who helped me get a REDcard since it is not available in the NYC area. It’s definitely much appreciated.) Continue reading

While I love traveling, cruises are definitely not my thing.

I’ve been on a cruise once in my life and it certainly didn’t leave me wanting to go back for more. Some things that I don’t like about cruises are that you are stuck for long periods of time onboard and when you do stop, you usually get a short visit wherever it might be. Also, the day seems to revolve around the meal schedule and (at least on our cruise) there weren’t enough lounge chairs by the pool.

I will add that the cruise we went on wasn’t one of those mega-ships. If I was to try a cruise again, I wouldn’t mind trying a river cruise. I’ve read positive things about them and I’m guessing it would be a very different experience.

Why am I writing about cruises if I don’t like them? Continue reading

Met Miss America & Visited Etihad’s The Residence at NY Times Travel Show

New York Times Travel Show

A couple of days back I wrote about the NY Times Travel Show and how Etihad’s The Residence would be there and yesterday I attended the show’s Trade Day.

I had an overall, very positive experience but noticed some differences this year. The booths didn’t seem to be as extravagant as in years past. It also seemed like the small handful of cities/ states/ countries that I wanted to chat with weren’t present! Continue reading
