This is bad news for many, and it came too late for me as I recently added my wife as an AU on my Freedom card. Dang!
I came across a whimsical website, whose aim is to list and describe what holiday every day of the year is. The website’s name is “Every Day is a Holiday.”
Happy National Chips and Dip Day!
For example, today is a holiday possibly created and promoted by the Frito-Lay Company…but who cares? It’s all good fun.

With Amex only granting one lifetime bonus for every type of credit card, it’s important to know what types you have had.

It’s not travel related, but this morning I was reminded of a valuable price-monitoring website for those of us who buy a lot from Amazon. That website is http://CamelCamelCamel.com
If there is something you plan to purchase on Amazon, but do not need right away, just go to CamelCamelCamel and enter it, along with a target price. If Amazon’s price ever drops to or below your target, you will automatically receive an email notification.
