American Express is a DansDeals.com advertiser. I’ve always been an advocate of using airline miles over proprietary points from banks. However the hits keep coming for airlines and the value of their miles. After gobbling up airlines like Airtran, Continental, Northwest, and USAirways, the remaining airlines have made it increasingly expensive to earn elite status, while reducing benefits at the same time. They have reduced hub service and capacity in order to raise airfares. They have stopped awarding miles for flights based on distance flown. Their cheapest fares will no longer include free carry-ons. They have all devalued their award charts, nearly doubling the cost of many awards: -United massively devalued their award chart in February 2014.-Delta removed their award charts from public view in February 2015. They have been stealthily making monthly devaluations since then, though their award availability has improved somewhat.-Southwest has made a number of devaluations to … [Read more...] about Are Bank Points Overtaking The Value Of Airline Miles? 2 Hybrid Cards Allow You To Lock In The Best Of Both Worlds

If you need a cosplay ready in time for Halloween (or any other event) and want something somewhat spooky but not headed in the direction of a standard bedsheet ghost, or if you’re a big fan of the Resident Evil franchise, this is one for you. Today we’re going to run down a basic guide on how to get a Claire Redfield cosplay ready in time for the big day of Resident Evil 2 Remakes release or even simple enough to be ready in time for Halloween. There’s a lot of variation when it comes to Claire’s costumes, what with her being featured in 3 of the franchises main games as well as the movies, but we’re going to be following the idea of her Resident Evil Darkside Chronicles RE2 variant costume for two main reasons, it’s linked to Resident Evil 2 and it’s a lot simpler to make than her classic RE2 costume. For more, you can check out our Lara Croft Cosplay guide and Life is Strange cosplay guides. We’ll be adding more guides in the future, … [Read more...] about Claire Redfield Cosplay guide – Resident Evil cosplay on a budget

There are a plethora of warm weather destinations you can fly to from Miami on the cheap with British Airways Avios. The decision on where to go was made easy thanks to having lifetime Fairmont Platinum status. The Fairmont Riviera Maya has been calling my name for some time now. We flew from Miami nonstop to Cancun from Sunday morning through Thursday afternoon in the last week of January. We got 4.5K Avios awards for myself, my wife, and our 2 kids. That’s a total of 36K Avios (about 25K AMEX points during the 40% bonus that was going on then) for the 4 round-trip tickets that would have cost upwards of $1,500 otherwise, an incredible use of miles. The flight was nearly full in both directions, but thanks to Main Cabin Extra seating, having 4 seats on a plane with a 3-3 … [Read more...] about Winter Break 2015 Trip Notes Part 2: Cancun And The Riviera Maya

This is a long trip report but my philosophy on trip reports is to write everything on a destination in one shot as opposed to dragging it out into dozens of annoying installments. I’m always open to suggestions and criticisms though, so sound off in the comments. Posts like these take days to write so your feedback is appreciated! It’s not much of a secret that I have a bit of a love affair with the Hawaiian islands. $87 was the cost for my hotel and airfare on my first trip in 2006. I’ve been back 5 times since. In this post I’ve included activities and pictures from 5 trips to Kauai. Why go back to the same place so many times? I’ve been lucky enough to travel to many far-flung corners of the world but there’s no place where I’m in as good of a place of mind as Hawaii. The air is … [Read more...] about Trip Notes Kauai: Heaven On Earth
