I’ve struggled for awhile with how to best organize my credit cards
Currently they just all sit inside a drawer inside my house (except for the 2 or 3 that I am carrying at any one time)
But that’s all about to change as I just got a pretty sweet travel hacking present for Christmas
What about you? How do you keep all your cards organized?
We finally finished our work on IHG’s Priceless Surprises promotion
While the promotion is targeted towards staying at hotels, there is also a mail-in option
You can enter 94 times, and each entry is guaranteed AT LEAST 500 IHG points
So doing it for both my and my wife’s accounts, a few hours work should net us 100,000 points
Best of the Rest
- Through the end of the year, you can get a $100 spa credit at select Hyatt hotels / resorts.
- Also if you’re traveling to / through New York’s LaGuardia airport, you can get 2 free Uber rides through the Amex Centurion lounge
- Did you hear that Air India banned 19 students from traveling to the US?
- Do you know a “good” Patricia? Plus the top 6 airline customer service moments and more
If you’re still up for more travel reading, here’s last week’s recap: The worst redemption ever? Plus how to arrange kids on a plane, free drinks, where our family is going for 40,000 miles and more

Do you have to have an IHG member account AS WELL AS an IHG mastercard or will any mastercard work?
Check the terms and conditions to be sure but I believe it is ANY Mastercard
You need to be an IHG member (otherwise where would the points go?), but you may use almost US MasterCard. You need to provide the first 6 digits which identify the bank and card type.
But I sent 30+ hand written entries in mid-November and still have not received any entries. Anyone else also not received anything despite the T&C’s saying that you’d receive an email within 7 business days of receipt?
I sent 3 in on Nov 21st and have not received anything. Then I had a stay on December 20th. Still nothing. I’m not doing all that work until I get something back.
