Some of you may have noticed that I like to visit McDonald’s while traveling around the world.
While McD’s is a place that I rarely ever dine at while home, I love stopping in international locations to see if any interesting items (which are not available in the U.S.) are sold.
From time to time I might stop at a McDonald’s at home. For example, we stopped at the Train Car McD’s in Massachusetts a few years back but didn’t order anything to eat. Continue reading
Last year I decided to get the Barclays Miles & More Lufthansa card when it was offering a sign up bonus of 50,000 miles.
Considering that I fly with Kim and Lucas on pretty much all of our trips, the 50K bonus wasn’t going to get us far. I kind of thought it wasn’t the best move to get the card in the end, but I’m sure that the miles will go to use for (most likely) a couple of domestic flights.
When the fee came up for the card late last week, I knew that it was going to get closed. However, before doing so I figured that it couldn’t hurt to see if they might have a retention offer for me. Continue reading
I just came across a giveaway from Gogo Inflight that is definitely worth sharing, especially if you’re in the market for a new iPhone!
While I’m not a fan of the new, bigger iPhones, they still seem to be quite popular. Unless Apple comes out with a smaller version like the models up to 5S, I guess that I’ll be getting one of these (probably the newer version) in a year or so when my contract is up. Continue reading
Yesterday I wrote about a crazy new law which is supposed to go into effect in Venice in May of 2015. (You can check out my post here.)
With this new law, tourists would be banned from using wheeled luggage to help combat noise pollution and damage to the streets & bridges.
I could kind of see the logic behind the ban. Continue reading
Uber is teaming up with Goodwill in a Winter Clothing Drive to offer clothing donation pickups of “gently worn clothes” today, November 25.
I received an e-mail about this offer from UberNYC. The offer is available in three cities- NYC, San Francisco & Boston free of charge.
If I lived in Manhattan, I’d definitely be taking Uber up on this offer. Kim and I have quite a few bags of clothes to give away… Continue reading
I just wanted to remind everyone to register their American Express Cards for the upcoming Small Business Saturday.
Doing so will get you $30 for free to spend at small businesses per card. Each card is actually allowed three $10 statement credits. Continue reading
It’s going to be getting a lot harder to visit Venice in the near future…
Beginning in May of 2015, using wheeled luggage is going to be banned in Venice.
Imagine arriving fresh off the train or boat and then having to lug your suitcase through the narrow, cobbled streets. Well Kim and I did during our visit but we travel with backpacks so it’s definitely a bit different… Continue reading
As we get closer to Thanksgiving so does another Black Friday and more importantly another Small Business Saturday. I hope that you’ve all registered your American Express cards by now.
I hope that you all have a nice holiday and for those of you traveling, that you don’t get stuck in much traffic or get delayed at the airport. Continue reading
Last weekend I posted a reminder about the last day to get an Uber free ride up to $30.
With this offer you can’t go wrong. $30 towards a free ride- just be sure to watch out for surge pricing and get a fare estimate so you have an idea of what it should cost to get to your final destination. Continue reading
