Tourists traveling to Europe continuously leave millions of dollars on the table in eligible Value Added Tax, or VAT, refunds, which can be 15-25% back on purchases depending on the country and nature of the purchase. That’s a decent amount of savings, and shouldn’t be left with your vacation memories in Europe.
Are you an American AAdvantage member currently looking to switch wireless service providers? Look no further.

It’s simple to do just follow the following steps, and before you know it – you’ll be on your way to a free vacation.
My husband loves his Ritz-Carlton Rewards credit card. It’s black and metal and he makes sure he plops it down on the bar when he pays his tab. There’s nothing he likes more than when a waitress oohs and ahhs over his card and gushes “it’s metal”. I typically roll my eyes and let him have his credit card moment.
In the wake of the Orlando nightclub massacre, JetBlue is offering free flights on its available flights to and from Orlando to immediate family members and domestic partners of the victims. “This weekend’s events are felt by all of our 19,000 crewmembers, many of whom live in, work from and travel through Orlando. We want to do our part to help the victims of this tragedy, as well as support the Orlando community through this difficult time.”
Last week, I wrote about an experience I had with Southwest Airlines when I volunteered to be “bumped” from one of their flights, and now I’m hooked on this travel strategy.
Taking advantage of Southwest’s voluntary bump policy never occurred to me until a few weeks ago, when inclement weather conditions prompted me to consider the option. My daughter and I had a wonderful diversion, turning an otherwise harrowing flight into a lovely overnight adventure in Providence, RI.
My friend was working for a corporation headquartered in Baltimore. In 2012, the company was bought by a competitor based out of Nashville. As a valued upper-level manager, she was given the choice of taking an attractive exit package or relocating to Nashville, with a promise to be promoted to Senior Vice President.
Last weekend, I was traveling with my daughter and husband from Providence, RI to Baltimore, MD, returning from a long-overdue weekend getaway. We reached the airport in ample time, so our check-in experience was smooth sailing. My family and I have been frequent flyers on Southwest, so my confidence in this company is very high. However, the weather was tumultuous, with threatening storm conditions in Baltimore, and I wasn’t really looking forward to the trip home.
Although my mom passed away over a decade ago, I still get quarterly email updates from Delta Air Lines reminding me that she has over 43,000 miles that have never been used. I’m not sure why I haven’t used them all these years. Maybe because I primarily fly Southwest to the destinations I visit most frequently. But I’ve been thinking about taking my daughters to Disney World this winter so maybe these points present an opportunity to reduce the cost of the trip.
I recently read an article in Rolling Stone about a 25-year-old blogger who has been obsessed with planes and the airline culture since he was a boy. Through constant research and networking with others who share his passion, he has mastered a system of acquiring travel points and rewards that has kept him in the skies, flying around the world in first-class accommodations for months at a time.
