a rare bout of nostalgia: remembering our move to canada

August 30, 2005: wmtc Packing up the apartment and getting ready for the road trip brings back bittersweet memories.In the spring and summer of 2005, we were in our final preparation for moving to Canada. All at once, an amazing writing opportunity dropped in my lap, we found a house to rent, and our dog Buster became extremely ill. We made a one-day roundtrip trip to Port Credit (Mississauga) via Buffalo on the first day of what would become a new round of Saving Buster. Since the day th...

New Silvercar 20% Car Rental Discount, No Minimum Rental Required

I don’t rent cars nearly as often as I used to given the ubiquity of Uber and Lyft. However I really like Silvercar and wish they were in more cities, and really like Silvercar discounts even more. Silvercar has an all-Audi fleet (and they’re now owned by Audi) and their all-inclusive model comes with free GPS, wifi, and satellite radio. You pay only actual tolls (no administrative charges) and can pay a flat $5 and they’ll refuel your car at market rate. Continue reading New Silvercar 20% Car R...

Air India’s Director of Flight Safety Just Failed Two Breathalyzers Before Trying to Fly London-Delhi

Government-owned Air India is a basket case. Air India crew often do as they wish whether it's evading alcohol checks and refusing to fly unless they're paired with their preferred co-workers. There's certainly fertile ground for improvement as the airline wishes to regain control of its operation. One place they may want to start is with whom they put in charge of training pilots for safety.

Turning American Express Airline Fee Credits into Spendable Cash

It's not too late to use your 2018 airline fee credits. And now is the perfect time to get an American Express card with an airline fee credit. That's because the credit is based on calendar year rather than your cardmember (or annual fee) year. You still gave time to get the card in 2018 and use the 2018 fee credit and then once January 2019 rolls around you can use the fee credit again. This means you'd get the airline fee credit twice in your first annual fee year. Continue reading Turni...
