About a month ago I wrote an article for the Travel Channel on some ideas for last minute family trips before school started back up.  The article is now live, but unfortunately there isn’t too much time for most folks to put the tips into action before school actually starts (especially here in the South where school is starting for many places on Monday).  However, if you aren’t tied to a school calendar, then the ideas may still help.  If it is too late for this year, then just file it away for next year.

All of them are trips I have taken myself (including one I am on right now), and all include tips on saving cash and/or maximizing miles and points.  Enjoy!

Also, if you want to see what Just Another Points Traveler, FlyerTalkinA2, and myself have to say about earning miles and points in this Reuters article.  Just in case you get confused – the Venture Card comment did not come from me.  ;)

    Nice to finally know your name. You see Daraius, Gary, Ben, Rick, ect all the time but I always referred to you as MP.

    I agree. So many months knowing you as MP and we finally know your name. What a change!

    @Troy and Maury, yeah I’ve had to use it a few times. I still prefer my “secret identity”. ;)
