At participating restaurants, lunches are a set three-course prix-fixe menu for $29 and dinner is $42. Given the normal…

5 Easy Ways We Saved Money + Earned Bonus Miles This Weekend

I love the big scores and huge bonuses as much (or more) than anyone else, but I also have nothing against some of the smaller savings and bonuses you can rack up travel or everyday expenses.

The Coolest McDonald’s Menu Item Ever!

One of my favorite parts of travel is eating local food. I mean, one of my favorite things in general is eating, so this really is no surprise. Once kids came along, some meals on the road (and at home) become just fuel instead of a fun experience, and our first meal in Rhode Island held true to that pattern. However, just when I thought I was doomed to McDonald’s nuggets, there was a fun surprise waiting on the menu.…

Get Ready to Earn 5x Points at Restaurants and More!

The Chase Freedom is one of my very favorite rewards cards that has no annual fee because it packs such a big earning punch with its rotating quarterly 5x bonus categories, up to the $1,500 quarterly max.

Now that absolutely does not happen to any large degree when traveling with my toddler, but since…

We all (hopefully) have our travel “happy spots”, and as I shared in this post and video, I am head over heels in love with Hawaii.
