East Coast Alaska Airlines companion fare strategies – The Free-quent Flyer

Some good ideas on how to maximize the Alaska card’s companion pass perk if you don’t live in their main coverage area.  That is of course assuming you are able to get BOA cards anymore :).

How Much Does Free Dining Actually Cost You? (In depth analysis) – Miles to the Magic

We usually just snack when visiting amusement parks since the food usually isn’t very good and it is overpriced.  But this is a good run down if you want to simplify things and just eat while you are there.  My tip is get the popcorn bucket at Disney, cheap refills are a life saver ;).

Revisiting My Favorite Site In the City of Love, The Paris Catacombs – Michael W Travels
Netflix Hikes Fees – After Taking Away the iTunes Discount Path – Running with Miles

I wasn’t aware of the discounted iTunes gift card trick since I always auto pay with my Chase Ink Plus for the 5X earning.  That, and the Chase Ink Cash, may be the best options going forward.  You can also buy discounted Netflix gift cards with Amex and Chase Offers at Staples and Lowe’s etc.
