This week feature one of the best airfare deals I’ve seen in awhile (maybe since the infamous “Great Dane” first class fare from back in February)

Through a confluence of several different promotions, you could get transatlantic business class fares for as low as $266 out of pocket!

If you missed out on that deal (I ended up not pulling the trigger either), here’s Why you missed out on yesterday’s MEGA fare sale



I took advantage of the deal a few months ago for 25,000 Alaska Airlines miles for opening up a new Bank of America checking account

My bonus miles have now successfully posted, but I ran into a new problem with my bill pay

See what the problem was and why I said that opening a new BoA checking account TOTALLY screwed me!


One of the anomalies of the rental car industry is that they want more cars in warmer climates during the winter, and in cooler climates during the summer.

As such, there are often good one-way car rentals in the fall and spring

Right now is a good example – there are great one way car rentals as low as $7.99 / day going into Arizona, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida
