My Weird Obsession With Hotel Slippers

My Weird Obsession With Hotel Slippers

Whenever I'm on the road I always travel light. So light, that I can usually fit all of my things into a single backpack. The only downside to this packing technique is it doesn't leave me with much room to bring anything home. I'm not much a of souvenir guy anyways,  but if there is one thing I always manage to squeeze in there, it's hotel slippers.

Travel Tools: AwardWallet

I think a lot of people get deterred from collecting miles and points because they don't realize how much work is truly involved. It can become quite the balancing act when you're trying to manage thousands of miles/points across a handful of different loyalty programs. Well thanks to AwardWallet, that balancing act just got a heck of a lot easier.

Why I Applied for the AAdvantage Aviator Business Mastercard

Why I Applied for the AAdvantage Aviator Business Mastercard

Remember that time I made a last ditch effort for Delta Skymiles? Well I'm kind of doing the same thing for AAdvantage miles right now. I've got a couple of different redemptions options in mind, but it's too early to tell exactly how I'll use them.

Thanks For The Heads Up Frontier...

Thanks For The Heads Up Frontier...

I flew to Denver, Colorado last weekend on Frontier Airlines to visit a group of friends. I was scheduled to depart Omaha at 8:00 p.m. on Friday and return home at 11:00 a.m. on Monday. Friday morning I was able to check into my flight and download my boarding pass with no issues. Everything seemed to be going according to plan until I got this email from Frontier around 1:00 p.m...

City Explorations: Toronto, Canada

City Explorations: Toronto, Canada

Adam and I's first full day in Toronto was centered around going to the Bluejays vs. Nationals baseball game. The game wasn't scheduled to start until 3:00 pm so we had time to visit the top of the CN Tower and do some exploring prior to first pitch. The tickets to the CN Tower were relatively cheap and the views of the sprawling Toronto skyline and Lake Ontario were really cool.

Review: Shangri-La Toronto

Review: Shangri-La Toronto

A couple of weeks before my brother and I left for Toronto, I made a last minute change and booked us a room at the Shangri-La. I really had no intentions of staying at such a nice hotel, but thanks to American Express' Fine Hotels & Resorts program I was able to afford it.

My Experience Getting Bumped on Delta Airlines

My Experience Getting Bumped on Delta Airlines

My brother, Adam, and I just finished up our trip to Toronto, Canada last weekend. We both had great time and I was really impressed with Toronto, but I'll have more on that later. On Tuesday we were scheduled to fly home from Toronto (YYZ) to Omaha (OMA) via Detroit (DTW). We had a relatively short connection in Detroit and arrived at our gate right as our flight was scheduled to begin boarding. We weren't even there two minutes when the gate agent announced that our flight was oversold and they needed two volunteers to take a later flight.

What I Love About Credit Karma

What I Love About Credit Karma

In this day and age most of your personal information is just one data breach away. With such a thin line between your information and identity thieves, it's always a good idea to keep a close eye on your credit. In order to keep up with my credit I signed up for Credit Karma's free credit monitoring and I'm thoroughly impressed. Let's take a look!
