Earn 1,000 Bonus United Miles With New Spring Shopping Promo

On the way to school today, my two-year-old said in her somewhat hard to understand adorable toddler voice that “myshonofit, istoosmall”. After turning down the radio and a little back and forth, it was determined that her adorable sneakers need to take a trip to the “too small bin” as her growing feet have outpaced their limited size. We were already just about to school when she made this announcement, so she was sentenced to a day in istoosmall shoes.…

New United Promotion: Were You Targeted for Thousands of United Miles?

United just released a new version of Mile Play that will allow some lucky MileagePlus members to earn thousands of bonus miles on upcoming United flights. The previous version of Mile Play that ended in early March was a total dud for my family requiring way more United flight purchases that we were going to make. This new version is much friendlier to us, and may actually result in some extra miles in the bank. The new United Mile Play promo runs…

Mom’s Breast Milk Missing from Checked Bag

When everything works as it should, nursing your baby can be special, healthy, simple, and mutually beneficial, but it gets very tiring and very complicated quickly when modern day life intercedes. If you, your partner, or a close member of your circle hasn’t yet nursed a little one for a period of time, I doubt I can adequately describe how much of a challenge it can be when what is an evolutionary biological norm hits 2018 working parent life. I…

Book United Award Flights for Less Via Singapore KrisFlyer Online!

Late last year, Singapore Airlines started displaying Star Alliance and other partner airline awards on their website for award bookings. This was tremendous news as previously you had to call to make award bookings with partners, which obviously adds a layer of complication to securing the flights you want. This was big news for most of us even if we don’t fly on Singapore with regularity because Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer miles are very easy to earn as they are a 1:1…

Save Tens of Thousands of Miles by Checking Airline Partners

A few weeks ago I got the idea of skipping throwing a regular birthday party for my youngest daughter this year and instead heading with her to Disney this summer to celebrate her third birthday doing her favorite things…dressing up and being surrounded by princesses! As long as the Disney part of the trip starts before she turns three years old, she is free for the duration of the trip since “no one ages at Disney” and children don’t require…
