Why More People Should Look to Low Cost Carriers

I like to travel as inexpensively as possible, but I’ll be one of the first to admit that I prefer to do that travel comfortably whenever possible.  I like having a larger seat, or being able to skip a line or two based on status, or have a larger hotel room waiting for me from time to time.  However, my preference for comfort and a little pampering can sometimes be traded off for a price. More People Should Look to…

How to Fly to Mexico and the Caribbean from 2,500 Miles Each Way!

Most major US frequent flyer programs price awards in large part based on geographic zones.  For example, the lower 48 and Canada may be one pricing zone, Hawaii another, Europe another, Mexico and the Caribbean another.  When you want to fly from one zone to another zone you pay the associated fee in miles according to the award chart. A common theme among most of these award chart zones is that it costs more to fly from the lower 48…

How to Use Your Spirit Airlines Miles for Someone Else

I prefer fancy pants lie-flat airplane seats and a little bit of pampering from time to time during my travels just like anyone, but I’m by no means “addicted” to only traveling that way, so when the opportunity arises to earn or use Spirit Airlines miles, I’ll take it.  Even if I can’t use the miles myself, I may be able to help someone else take a vacation they otherwise might not afford using the miles (before they expire!).  In…

Why Getting the Spirit Airlines Credit Card Isn’t Crazy

My parents get new rewards credit cards from time to time, though at a rate even slower than me.  That’s saying a lot since I am pretty conservative taking the slow and steady approach with adding new cards to my collection.  However, over the years they have seen the light and understand that big travel rewards can come from strategic addition and use of various rewards credit cards. One card my dad has had for a little while now that…

Fly for Less Than $40 Each Way!

We all know that Spirit Airlines has some crazy low prices for flights sometimes, but again yesterday I was struck by just how low those prices are.  They are having a sale that ends tomorrow night (11:59 PM EST on March 4, 2015) that I think is worth mentioning.  There are many decent routes that are selling for less than $40 per person each way.  Those are like bus ticket prices! The travel dates are from 3/10/15 – 3/26/15 OR…
