Earn 10x Chase Points at Walmart.com This Month

Six more days. Y’all, school officially starts here in six more days. Not just meet the teacher or orientation night or whatever, but an actual real school day with a 7:10AM bus pick-up is in just six days. I have mixed feelings about this return of pre-dawn wake-ups, evening homework battles, never ending paperwork, daily lunch kit packing, the onslaught of extra-curricular activities, second grade best friend drama, and more, though the idea of getting back on a regular schedule…

Turning Back to School Purchases Into Thousands of Airline Miles

Back to school shopping is here, and so are the corresponding miles and points bonuses that I will outline below. It was somewhat surprising to me that families with children in elementary through high school plan to spend an average of about $688 on back to school purchases this year, up a little from last year. That does not include those with kids in college, as that total is several hundred dollars higher. Of those surveyed, 44% plan to do…
