Combine the netflix offer with a new United Mileage Plus credit card and you’ve got a free domestic round trip for only a few$$. The $4.99 plan per month appears to qualify for the miles. You get 2000 for netflix sign up and 2000 more for using the credit card listed below.
But FIRST, sign up for the United Mileage Plus credit card and spend $250 on the card for 21,000 more miles. The first year fee is waived and you also get a $25 travel certificate which is worthwhile and a 1000 mile upgrade which is very worthless unless you run into a sympathetic gate agent.
WEBSITE CHANGES and the BEST RATE GUARANTEE WEBSITE
I got rid of the goofy looking ads at the top of the web page, but I think we’ll have to change hosts as the blue background takes up too much space. Dave from the Best Rate Guarantee Blog is a computer whiz and helping this website rookie. Give his site a visit to learn about staying at hotels for FREE. He knows his stuff about the triprewards guarantee and more importantly, how to find the hotels. And as a new addition, if you send him your email address, he will give you two hours advance notice of the deals he finds, before posting them online.
It is fun for me to associate others with the same passion and willingness to share. Join us on the road to Frugal Travel.

A FEW MORE TESTS FOR KATY
Last week we ran around getting my bride an MRI on her brain. The saga is not over. There was a finding that requires additional testing. We are off to another bigger and better MRI today. I believe that people working together can accomplish great things and have far more power than we can as individuals. There is not a person in the world that meets Katy that doesn’t instantly fall in love with her. She is a treasure and gift to this world and the medical community.
If you get a second today and can think about Katy Coyle in your thoughts and prayers this frugal guy will appreciate it very much.
Citi Prestige® Card
- Annual Fee: $450 fee
- Foreign Fees: No
- Card Type: Bank
The increase to 50,000 ThankYou points for the Citi Prestige card may be a signal that Citi wants back in the game, big time. The sign-up bonus has just been increased to 50K points from the previous 30K offer. An added benefit is a $250 annual air travel credit each calendar year -- so, if you sign up in April, you'll receive the credit this year, and again in January of next year -- which more than covers the $450 first year fee. When you add in lounge access for you and up to two of your guests, you’ve added another $400+ in value. One more benefit worth mentioning is the fourth night free for any four-night hotel stay booked through Wagonlit Travel. And lastly is the $100 statement credit when you sign up for Global Entry and pay for it using the Prestige card. Don’t forget the ever-growing number of airline transfer partners that work with the ThankYou points program.
