Save Time & Money With Costco Travel Part 1: Introduction

Did you know Costco members can save money booking car rentals, vacation packages, and cruises?

The Costco Travel program can be a great option for folks who book paid travel instead of redeeming miles & points.  Because you might save lots of money compared to booking through an online travel agency like OrbitzExpedia, or Priceline.

For example, team members Jasmin and Harlan each booked week-long car rentals through Costco Travel and saved $100 off the prices shown on other sites.  And you can potentially save much more or get extra perks with other travel packages!

Rumor: New Premium Card from US Bank, Sign-Up Bonus Worth $750!

Via Miles to Memories, there’s a new premium credit card from US Bank coming May 1, 2017!

US Bank’s Altitude Reserve Visa card will compete with cards like the AMEX Platinum, Chase Sapphire Reserve, and Citi Prestige.

It will (supposedly!) come with a 50,000 point sign-up bonus, and perks like an annual travel credit, bonus points for travel spending, a credit for Global Entry, and more.

I’m excited about it, because more credit card options means more competition between banks.  And that’s a good thing for folks like us!
