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!

Review: Kansas City Marriott Country Club Plaza

Review: Kansas City Marriott Country Club Plaza

Wether it's for a bachelor party, wedding, Royals game or just visiting friends, I probably spend a handful of weekends in Kansas City each year. It's only a three hour drive from Omaha and there are always a ton of things going on. In a few of my more recent visits to Kansas City I've stayed at the Intercontinental and the Marriott Downtown.

I Booked My First Stay at a Shangri-La Hotel

I Booked My First Stay at a Shangri-La Hotel

I'm going to be taking my brother, Adam, to Toronto in a few weeks for his college graduation present. We're going to spend four nights there so I'd originally booked us a room at the Toronto Marriott City Centre Hotel. It's not the most aspirational property so I've been keeping an eye out for a better deal as our trip draws near.

Review: Delta Economy A350 Beijing to Detroit

Review: Delta Economy A350 Beijing to Detroit

Since I just reviewed my Detroit (DTW) to Beijing (PEK) flight a couple of weeks ago, I'm going keep this one pretty concise.  First and foremost, If you've never flown through Beijing before, or China for that matter, I'd suggest getting to the airport EXTRA early. If you think the TSA is bad just wait until you try and get through their security cluster.
