New AMEX Offer for Etsy: $15 Off $50 (Expires 9/30)

Good morning everyone.  I was just looking through my AMEX Offers and spotted an offer for Etsy.  You can get a $15 statement credit after spending $50 online.  I have never bought anything from Etsy, but I know they have some pretty cool stuff.  This offer was on every single one of my cards (except for the AMEX Blue Business Plus Credit Card, which never seems to have any AMEX Offers).

If you are an Etsy expert, tell me what items I should buy.  Does anyone sell on Etsy?  If you have any questions, please leave a comment below.  Have a great day everyone!

PSA: Buy National Park Senior Pass Before Massive Price Hike on August 28

The popular senior lifetime pass to America’s national parks is about to get a price hike. And it’s a big one. Act fast to save $70 before August 28, 2017. The pass covers entrance fees to more than 400 national parks for an unlimited number of visits. It’s available for anyone 62 and older. Currently, the pass is only $10. If you purchase online or through the mail, you pay an additional $10 processing fee. But starting on August 28, the price is going up to $80.

The senior pass has not had a price increase since 1994, but why is the new price $80?  Here is your answer: The legislation states that the cost of the lifetime Senior Pass be equal to the cost of the annual America the Beautiful – The National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass, which is currently $80.  To find out more about purchasing your senior pass – either online or in person – click here.

I love my pass and use it a lot. Make sure to get yours, or at the very least, find a bestie who has one :) Where’s your favorite place to use yours? I’m partial to Point Loma in San Diego, and to parks in Hawaii.
