American Express is a DansDeals.com advertiser. Originally posted on 10/08: Do your eyes glaze over every time I make another post about miles and credit cards? If it’s the latter, you have good instincts. The credit card points system is partially subsidized by the millions of Americans who fall into the trap of debt, buying things they can’t afford, and paying huge amounts of interest to the banks. If you’re susceptible to that behavior, then don’t play the game. Cut up all your cards, pay for things in cash, and be happy not being in debt. Any gain from the points system will be obliterated by interest payments. Otherwise though you’re leaving … [Read more...] about Building Credit And Credit Card FAQs: Your Questions Answered

The start of a new month is always a pretty exciting time at my house – because that's when Netflix announces everything they're adding over the next few weeks. And to help pass that info along (and to let you plan your nights of binge-watching accordingly), we put together this guide to what's new on Netflix Canada. Before you can start, however, you need to make sure you have a Netflix account. If you're new to all this, you can sign up for Netflix and enjoy a free one-month trial. And if you already have an account, just sign in! The cold weather seemed to really hit just about all of Canada in January. And I don't know about you, but I don't plan to leave the house unless I absolutely have to in February. Luckily, Netflix Canada is adding a TON of new shows and movies to their roster over the next few weeks – including the entire Back to the Future trilogy, Shrek and one of my personal favourites, Leap Year. And you better believe there are plenty more rom-coms for … [Read more...] about What’s New on Netflix Canada for February 2019

Hundreds of frequent flyer enthusiasts from forums like Flyertalk and Milepoint get together and fly around the world together and meet with various airline and hotel executives. Star of course refers to Star Alliance. A DO (pronounced like the word do or due) is simply a get-together while a MegaDo is a really big get together. Space to attend these events is always quite limited and there is a cost from $1,000 up to $5,000 depending on how much of the event you want to attend (domestic or international+domestic) and what class you’ll be sitting in on the plane. Participants were treated to flying a brand new United 787 Dreamliner among many other goodies. I was invited to attend the United portion of the DO in Chicago for free so that’s what I’ll talk about. … [Read more...] about Trip Report: United DO 2012 In Chicago
Here are some trip notes from our recent travels. Hopefully some will find them useful and maybe even inspiring for their own travel planning. If not, just go on down and pretend that this post doesn’t exist 😉 A month that we’ll never forget. My wife and I flew around the world in peak travel season in December and January and managed to do it using miles and points. We flew on 17 flight segments, including flights in First Class suites that would normally cost $20,000 for just 2 flight segments, and stayed in $5,000 hotel suites, all from opening some credit cards! Back in May 2010 we flew to Paris, Venice, Zurich, and Tel Aviv using Star Alliance miles while enjoying First Class on Star Alliance carriers like Swiss (which has an amazing in-flight product with down bedding) and Lufthansa (which has First Class lounges and staff that will cater to your every whim. Like our chauffeur who drove us in a Porsche Panamera from the First … [Read more...] about Round-The-World Trip Notes, Part 1: Khao Lak, Thailand.

Here are some more trip notes from the round-the-world trip my wife and I took for a month between December 2010 and January 2011. Australia had long been on my bucket list, so it was really exciting to finally make it down under! I hope these notes will prove useful for somebody. You can read more of my trip reports by clicking on the trip notes tab. This trip was made possible by AA’s unique OneWorld award chart where we flew around the world in first class for the cost of opening up a few credit cards. With myriad of rules it’s not designed for beginners, but it sure is a whole lot of fun to play with!
