In truth, food is one of my favorite things about travel.   When I travel with my youngest daughter…

Ending This Week: 10x at Restaurants, 2x Elsewhere, and More!


THE BLUE FOR BUSINESS OFFER REFERENCED BELOW IS NO LONGER OFFERED. CHECK BACK FOR UPDATED OFFER. Earlier this month a pretty under-rated credit card sign-up bonus was scheduled to end, but it then got a last minute extension through this coming Wednesday, February 22nd. The new expiration date is coming this week, so if you missed it on the first pass and are looking for a card that won’t impact your Chase 5/24 status due to being a small business card,…

Panera Coupon Code for 50% Off Online Delivery Order in Houston


Like most people, I have a couple vices or indulgences that cause me to spend a little more money than I probably should. None of my vices are particularly exciting or seedy, in fact they are generally almost embarrassingly boring. One of my quite boring vices is ordering Panera salads for lunch delivery. They may taste good and be pretty good for you, but especially when ordered for delivery with the added fees and tip, they are really not great for…

Pre-Ordering American Airlines First Class Meals…Just Not for Kids

Child's meal

When you are booked in a premium cabin on American Airlines, you can go online into your reservation from 30 days until 24 hours before departure and select a meal option.

Since we are within 30 days of some American Airlines first class flights I logged in to my reservations to check out the menu choices and select the ones…

5 Ways to Earn Miles and Save Money on Thanksgiving


I was in legitimate shock last night when I realized that Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK!

Wow, time flies when you are having fun taking care of sick kids, or something like that. So, let’s regroup and go full on Turkey Day for a bit. Equally as shocking as the reality that…

Easy 1,500 Membership Rewards Points or More from Eating!

Save Big With New Amex Offers

I like to think I don’t have any ‘addictions’ in life, but I certainly have a few things I really, really enjoy on frequent occasion. Travel, miles, and points could probably fall in that category, but so does Panera Bread. Oh Panera. Here in chain-store-Suburbia we sadly don’t have juice bars and independent salad shops and similar as I enjoyed once upon a time in Manhattan, but we have Panera.   They have salads you can customize to your heart’s…
