Amazon eGift Card Winners for Columbus Day Weekend Giveaway

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you all had a great Columbus Day Weekend.  I wanted to thank everyone who participated in my giveaway and left a comment sharing their Columbus Day Weekend plans.  I wish I could pick everyone, but I could only pick 3 winners.  Here are the 3 winners who will each receive a $10 Amazon eGift Card.

Chris D Great timing. We are planning to possibly go to San Francisco/Monterey in Feb 2018. Would love to hear trip report of the Hyatt and aquarium in future. I was looking at Hyatt Monterey vs Carmel property. Our plans for Columbus day is to go to Mystic Aquarium in Mystic, CT with our 9 year old twins. We are big aquarium fans! Curious how Mystic will compare to your Monterey aquarium visit. Lots to do in the Mystic area with the old seaport and lots of shops and dining options. Thanks for sponsoring contest.
psychocycle i am staying near great smoky mountains national park. each day of the extended weekend i am out for a “century” on my bike. each 100 mile ride will criss-cross and cross-criss the appalachian trail several times. the climbs will be heinous, but what goes up must go down, and i’ll be glad to let gravity do the work! all this being said, it looks like hurricane/tropical storm nate will soak me, but better to be soaked with rain than soaked with sweat! ha thanks for your site. and thanks for the chance to win!
Nitra Going to Vancouver. My bday was Oct 1 so this is my “birthday trip.” Used 20k Avios to book DFW-YVR on AA round trip and using my 2 free nights from the Fairmont card for the Fairmont Pacific Rim. A friend is using UR points for another hotel for our 3rd night. Our Columbus Day Monday is Thanksgiving Day in Canada. Enjoy Monterey!

Thanks you for participating and good luck on the next giveaway :)

Giveaway: Share your Columbus Day Weekend Plans & Win a $10 Amazon eGift Card

Good morning everyone, happy Friday!  I don’t know about you, but I have big plans this Columbus Day Weekend.  I used a Hyatt Free Night Certificate and 30,000 Hyatt points to stay 3 nights at the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa on Del Monte Golf Course (15,000 Hyatt points / night or ~$200 / night).  I am going with my girlfriend on a relaxing weekend trip.  Monterey / Carmel holds a very special spot in my heart because my family and relatives used to drive up to Monterey from Southern California every year for Thanksgiving week.  Some of my favorite childhood memories happened in Monterey / Carmel, so I am very excited about returning.

Southwest Refundable Ticket Changes: Refundable No More

Seems like we all need to do a better job of reading the fine print. Why? Well, here’s an example from Southwest. I don’t fly Southwest as often as many people I know do. And I’ve made plenty of mistakes and epic fails when it comes to their rules and regulations. Many of my family members are Southwest devotees, so I’ve started keeping a closer eye on Southwest and their programs. Because, after all, I know I’m going to get all the complaints questions from my cousins if I don’t keep them informed :)

Is there REALLY nothing to hide?
