-Service at the Park Hyatt Buenos Aires was somewhat inconsistent. We were not addressed by name as consistently as we were at international Park Hyatt locations. The vast majority of the employees at the hotel were awesome and very friendly. English is spoken by all very well. However there are a handful of employees that made for some unpleasantness that I have never experienced at an international Park Hyatt before. The hotel gives free complimentary bottles of water and they specifically told us to just call for more when we needed it. However when they delivered our amenity (a few oranges) we asked for more water and the employee proceeded to open our fridge and exclaim that we already had water. When we asked for a late checkout we were told to check back later when a supervisor would be around. When I did come back the employee I was referred to (a supervisor?) started telling me how they “already gave us a triple … [Read more...] about Trip Notes: Buenos Aires, Argentina

I wrote about the trip on DansDeals and the response was overwhelming. We received thousands of inquiries about attending, though many of those were hoping to offer a service to come for free. We had requests from Rabbis, Doctors, Lawyers, Lecturers, Scientists, Babysitters, Massage Therapists, Bloggers, Instagramers, Influencers, Thought Leaders, a Yoga Instructor, and many more offering their services in exchange for a comped trip. Publications started pressing us to advertise our trip on their website or magazine. Now that may work on a cruise where prices are low and there are thousands of passengers, but it doesn’t work on a cruise that is planning on having just a dozen passengers to be feasible and make an awesome unprecendeted trip happen. … [Read more...] about Antarctica Trip Notes Part 1: Buenos Aires+Planning And Positioning For The Adventure Of A Lifetime

Another benefit of the card not reporting on your personal credit report is that when you spend money on personal cards your credit score will be hurt even if you pay your bill on time. A whopping 30% of your credit score is based on credit utilization. You can pay off your card bill before your statement is generated to avoid that, but that takes effort and laying out money well before you have to. Additionally it’s good to have the statement close with a couple dollars to show the card is active and being paid every month. On an business cards from banks like AMEX, Chase, and Citi it’s just not reported, so you can wait until the money is due without it having a negative effect on your score. That also means if you close the card, it won’t have an effect on your credit score. … [Read more...] about Less Than One Hour Left To Earn Up To 75,000 American AAdvantage Miles With Limited Time Offers From Citibank!
