Seeing Hamilton in Chicago for Cheap: Part 4 – Museum of Science & Industry and Other Activities in Chicago

Million Mile Secrets team member Jasmin visited Chicago with her 3 kids to see Hamilton – An American Musical.  And she did NOT wait months for tickets or pay a small fortune!

She’ll tell you how she traveled with her family to Chicago using miles, points, and credit card perks for an unforgettable weekend of Big Travel with Small Money!

Jasmin:   Thanks, D!  My children are huge Hamilton fans!  The soundtrack is in heavy rotation in our house, the kids know all the lyrics, and Lin-Manuel Miranda is their hero.

Should You Use the Chase Sapphire Reserve or Chase Hyatt Card for Hyatt Stays?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Sudeep, tweeted:

Which card is better to use for an upcoming stay at a Hyatt hotel?  The Chase Sapphire Reserve or Chase Hyatt Visa?

Thanks for the question!  Both the Chase Sapphire Reserve and Chase Hyatt Visa earn 3 points per $1 spent at Hyatt hotels.
