Approved For The Chase Sapphire Reserve 100K Offer (Unexpectedly)

I was just approved for the Chase Sapphire RESERVE and am way over 5/24 (will explain). I normally don’t blog about specific credit cards as I believe the best credit cards depend on a person’s individual goals. However, last week I walked into a Chase branch to close my Chase Total [...]

Baby Loungin’ Japan

As you all probably already know, last week we went to Japan sans G&O and had a pretty special time just the two of us. Although we missed the girls terribly towards the end of the trip, Japan was a long time coming and I’m grateful DD Mommy and I [...]

All Hail To Our Women

I came across a scientific study today that had me giggling like a school boy inside my head. Many may not know (I didn’t),  there’s a male birth control shot which exists and is nearly 96% percent effective at preventing pregnancy. A study was conducted between 2008 and 2012 in [...]

Cancun Flights At A Laughable Cost

In August I registered for the JetBlue #GoForthWithJetBlue Points Match promotion, which matched my Virgin America points to JetBlue points after one roundtrip flight. I didn’t have any Virgin America points so I did what any travel hacker would do and transferred some points from my SPG account to my VX Elevate [...]

Conflicted Jet Lag Strategy

Let me preface this post by stating that I absolutely understand the following scenarios are first world problem-esque. For those of you that have traveled to long-haul destinations in different time zones, you know that jet lag is REAL and arriving to your final destination exhausted is no fun. Today [...]

How Long Is Too Long?

I booked our highly anticipated Japan trip 11 months ago and we’re a little over a month until we take this ‘dream come true’ trip. First Class Japan Airlines For Dirt Cheap and 6 nights in 5 star hotels for $0 out of pocket, if you want to read the details of the trip [...]

“Cheap” Hamilton Tickets With Amex

  American Express launched a pre-sale last week for tickets to Hamilton, the broadway smash hit. Tickets as low as $199 for June to August 2017 were made available and trust me, $199 is dirt cheap for Hamilton given that tickets cost $400 and up to “get-in”. The catch? You [...]

Chronicles Of A Dad With Two Under 2

Words by long time friend and newly appointed daddy of two, Andres. It’s been 8 weeks since my beautiful daughter joined our precious family. She annointed my wife and I, ‘proud parents’ of two under 2. I expected the addition of a second child to be more work but the scope of how much [...]

Breakfast with Goofy & Pals at the Four Seasons

Hope everyone had a nice Labor Day weekend. I’m still shaking my head in disbelief as to how great the weekend was for G&O. Not only because we went to Disney to see all the princesses (they’re obsessed) but what a great find I discovered in tourist trap-haven Orlando. I’ve always heard [...]

Raising Bilingual Children

The girls started school a few weeks ago and they’re starting to say words and phrases like “Oh my god”, “come here” and “don’t do that”. Mixing their first language of Spanish that we speak to them at home with the English they’ve learned at school, creates a slight delay in [...]
