My Review of LoungeBuddy: The TripAdvisor for Airport Lounges!

Airport lounges are a great way to make your travel experience more enjoyable.  Lounges can vary by airport, but they usually offer perks like free Wi-Fi, drinks and snacks (or even full meals!), and comfortable chairs.

Often times, there are several airport lounges in the same terminal.  So how do you decide which lounge to visit?

There’s a terrific website and app called LoungeBuddy, which provides details like specific airport lounge locations, cost, and featured amenities.  And folks can even share personal reviews of their experience at the lounge.


LoungeBuddy Is a Great Tool for Folks Looking to Find the Best Airport Lounges, Like the Virgin America Loft Lounge in Los Angeles

A few years ago, I interviewed Tyler, the founder of LoungeBuddy.  Since then, there have been many enhancements to the app!

I’ll explain how you can use LoungeBuddy to improve your travel experience!

Ink Plus or AMEX Business Gold: Which Is the Better Small Business Card for You?

The Chase Ink Plus and The Business Gold Rewards Card from American Express OPEN are 2 small business credit cards that earn flexible points.  Transferable points are my favorite because you’ll have many options for Big Travel With Small Money.

And both small business cards offer a sign-up bonus after meeting minimum spending requirements.  Plus, you can accumulate bonus points in certain spending categories.  You’ll also get certain purchase protections while traveling and shopping when you pay with either card.

My Virgin America Review!

I recently took my first flight on Virgin America, from San Francisco to New York City.

I had low expectations for the flight.  Virgin America is known for its chic atmosphere, and I expected a lot of smoke and mirrors instead of quality service and overall performance.  But I was pleasantly surprised!
