Dallas to/from Las Vegas $86 RT on Virgin America Non-Stop

Virgin America (VirginAmerica.com) has round-trip flights from Dallas (DAL) to Las Vegas (LAS) for only $86 and that is non-stop. This is only $44 each way reversible. The flights are for TUE/WED/SAT from February to May. You may get lucky and find a few Saturday departures but no holidays as they will have a blackout. We are also hoping for this sale to get matched by the other major airlines such as Southwest or American. So make sure to check around for Spring travel on the cheap! Virgin America is by far our favorite airline because of the mood lighting, classier service, and it’s just cool like that. Many American Airlines flights for 2+ hours still have no Wifi and you get that on every Virgin America flight. I truly feel like I am in the stone age when on American Airlines flights these days! Need hotel booking promo codes or transportation to and from the...

Kellogg’s Family Rewards Points Review & Promo Codes

Kellogg’s Family Rewards Points The Kellogg’s Family Rewards point system is a way to give back to those individuals who purchase products from the Kellogg lineup of products. The company sells a wide range of different items, ranging from cereals to crackers, snacks and other food items. The company wants to make sure those who enjoy the products are rewarded for their purchases, which is why they have decided to start up this rewards system. Whenever someone buys a Kellogg’s item, they need to look for a code printed somewhere on the label. Usually it is on the interior of the package, such as on the inside of a cereal box, although if there is no solid packaging, it might just be on the back of a product wrapper. Once the code is located, a person can head over to then “KellogsFamilyRewards.com” website and create an account. Doing so is easy and all a person needs to do is enter in a mail address and email address to sign up. Once the account is active they should type in the code. They can enter in codes through the regular desktop website, through their mobile phone or by text messaging the service. Every time a code is entered the individual receives points for their purchase. When entering a code, the person is automatically entered into a chance to win free groceries from the company. They also can use the codes for free rewards (which is why the mailing address is required as there are some products that can only be obtained through the mail), or they can use the codes...

Status Matcher, Hotel Upgrade App, Best Plane Seats, and Points Maximizer Tool

There are tons of tools and apps to help us get where we want online these days but finding the right ones to do the right thing at the right time is also something we might need a tool for. That is why I created this post mainly for myself to come back to and help me book award travel or any travel at all. As tools start charging I will drop them and add ones that offer more features. Bookmark this page and come back often! StatusMatcher can help you match loyalty program elite status from one carrier to another.  For example, leverage your Silver status with American Airlines to obtain Platinum status with Virgin America or Hilton HHonors to get IHG Platinum Status. 2. Muchopoints uses an algorithm that calculates and filters the hotels that will provide customers the most points to make the best choice to maximize their points when booking hotels .  Muchopoints, currently in Beta, plans to offer end users with the option to manage all their hotel programs with one single log on.  This will be similar to AwardWallet where users will be able to track all their points and elite statuses for supported hotel programs.  Hopefully they do the same for Airlines.  Here are the supported hotels at this time: Hilton HHonors Marriot Rewards Best Western Le Club Accor Hotels IHG Rewards Club SPG – Starwood Preferred Guest Choice Hotels and others coming soon! Pexportal is a similar website that uses an award travel search engine where you can search for mileage airfare. 3. HotelUpgrade offers free hotel perks and complimentary upgrades when you book your...

Uber is Back in Las Vegas while resorts are now charging for parking

The comeback of UBER to Las Vegas was imminent and will be bigger than ever because they should be allowed to pick up passengers at McCarran International Airport. A place that until now has been sacred to only long taxi lines, limos and those ride share vans. UBER is officially back in Las Vegas now that the Nevada Transportation Authority made its final approval for ride sharing companies. While it will not include airport pickup when it launches you can at least get around the city without being nickeled and dime’d by a cabbie. Sign up and look for UBER Promos here and here. A workshop is scheduled for August 25th to discuss the actual areas of operation for ride share companies like UBER and Lyft. According to the Las Vegas Review Journal the Clark County Commission will discuss any new proposed areas operation at a meeting on October 20. A new plan of how UBER will work at McCarran Airport has been released and it may be a bit more complicated than some airports. Once you use the app to alert UBER that you’ve landed there you will then need to stand at a specified location. The UBER driver will meet you at a numbered stall in the parking area near valet parking at your terminal. Of course being dropped off will be as simple as being dropped off by a taxi. You just get dropped off at your airline’s curbside terminal. Just like any other airport UBER will offer savings over a traditional taxi from McCarran Airport. Especially the longer of your ride off the strip in which some taxi’s are known...

Elevator Keys at Hotels and Workarounds to a Nuisance

One of the most annoying things which is sadly a trend in the hotel industry are these room keys to get up the elevator. Mainly because the hotel does not have in mind those of us traveling for business have deliveries such as Postmates or even pizza. One of the reasons of asking for a delivery is so that we do not have to stop what we are doing and deal with elevators and such that is part of what we are tipping the delivery drivers to do. I recently stayed at the Hyatt Atlanta Midtown to find that it was yet another hotel that featured the elementary school elevator keys. I just do not understand why adults have to use keys in a day when they have video cameras at the front door, security at the front at night, and giving us one more travel hassle that is just unnecessary. I ordered Postmates delivery if you are not familiar you can read about it here: http://bit.ly/PostmatesFree to find that my food sat getting cold at the front because the delivery person was not able to come up to the room. At most hotels they would send the person up but they would not send him up. Hotel sites need to list when they have elevator key hassles on their websites from now on. People can decide if it is an “amenity” they want when they stay at a hotel. Great location otherwise… Room service could be open longer hours as it opens at 5pm. Good Wifi. New, modern hotel. The Fairfield Inn by Marriott in Tulsa has the same...

By using code Elevate75 you’ll receive $75 off your rental which can be combined with the $25 you receive signing up with this promo code of VME in the Referral Section. This is a total of $100 off! Existing members can use code Elevate75 and receive 15% off their rental. ($75 off expires 1/29/16.) Silvercar Rental Review I first learned about Silvercar when they came to Dallas a few years ago but never really had a need for them because they were not in a city I had planned to rent a car in until now. I’ve seen all the sites from Ebates to Retailmenot posting promo codes but never really understood how the car rental site worked compared to Budget or Hertz.com. Pretty sure I have the hang of it now and just in time for a last minute July 4th Vacation in Denver, CO. I have been so worried about this trip because my family will be outside of Denver and I will need a rental car of some kind. So I researched on Kayak.com and then over on the Citi Thank You points site. I also looked over at Budget.com where I am used to putting in coupon codes to save 20% or so. Well I found out that it is nearly impossible to get a good deal on a rental car last minute but I just rented an Audi cheaper than it would cost for an Economy car at Fox Rent-a-Car or Budget. Hassle-free where I use...
