Boy, The Movie Theater Has Changed! Awesome Seats & Reserved Seating.

Yesterday I did something I haven’t done in about ten years, I went to the movies. I took my kids to see a movie and I was blown away by how much it has changed in ten years. My first experience was booking it using the Fandango app, which is extremely convenient and quick. Before


50,000+ Miles This Year: Premier Gold Status On United

Four years ago, I was so excited I made elite status on Continental (now United) Airlines. Since then, I’ve hit “Premier Silver” status on the airlines MileagePlus program.

Cashed In On My 1st Foursquare Special

Friday I complained a 4sq special failed me but that all changed this Sunday. I went to Modell’s, because you got to go to Mos, and I used a $10 off $50. The cashier had no clue what it was but the manager was right behind him and the manager plugged it in. It was
