Original Peloton Bike Monitor Screen Attachment Allows Adjustment / Rotation of 360 Degrees (No Bike+ Needed)

Good afternoon everyone.  Last December, Laura and I got a Peloton Bike.  I know, we are late to the Peloton Party, but I really enjoy the energetic and enthusiastic classes and have been using it a few times per week since then.  As a refresher, Peloton sells the Bike for $1,445 or the Bike+ for $2,495.  You also need to pay $44 / month for the All-Access Membership.  The main difference between the Bike and Bike+ (in my opinion) is the ability to rotate the screen 360 degrees so you can easily see the screen when you are doing other workouts (cardio, strength, yoga, stretching, etc).  The monitor is a little bigger and a little nicer, the audio quality is a little better, and there is an auto-resistance option too.  The differences do not seem worth the $1,000+ price difference, but there is an easy way to turn your Bike into a Bike+ with a simple monitor screen attachment.

2 PSAs: Lowe’s Lowest Price Guarantee (Price Match) via Online Chat & Limit of 5 Gift Cards per Online Order

Good afternoon everyone, I hope your week is going well.  Last weekend, Laura and I decided to get a refrigerator for our garage.  After looking at a few options at our local Lowe’s store, we decided to buy the Frigidaire Garage-Ready 18.3-cu ft Top-Freezer Refrigerator (Stainless Steel).  The dimensions, price, and awesome reviews made the decision easy.  The refrigerator was on sale for $799, but I decided to double check the price on Home Depot to see if it was cheaper.  Much to my surprise, the same refrigerator (Frigidaire 30 in. 18.3 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator in Stainless Steel) was on sale for $718, a difference of $81.

I had a few Lowe’s gift cards that I purchased at a discount and Lowe’s was offering 3% cash back for appliances last weekend via online shopping portals, so I wanted to order through the Lowe’s website, but I wanted to have Lowe’s match Home Depot’s price.  In this post, I will show you how to the Lowe’s price match process worked and the 5 gift card limit per online order I encountered.

Good afternoon everyone, happy Friday!  I was working on my Buy Miles & Points Page and found 5 offers that end in the next week.  Always check the math to make sure that buying miles & points makes sense for you.  Do not buy miles & points speculatively unless you have a use in mind.  With that said, here are 5 offers that end soon.

Up first, Choice Hotels is offering up to a 35% bonus, depending on the number of Choice Hotels Privileges Points you purchase.  This offer expires today – September 22.

What New Features or Benefits would make InKind Even Better?

Good afternoon everyone.  InKind has made several improvements over the months since I first started using the app in November 2022. I am a big fan of their referral program, the ability to split the bill into 25%, 33%, 50%, 66%, and 75% portions makes going out to dinner with others much easier, the introduction of the InKind Rewards program with targeted challenges, the ability to share / transfer / gift your InKind balance to other members, and their latest AMEX Offer where you can try the InKind Pass free for a year.  With all those great features, I am sure there is still much room to grow.

In terms of new features I would like to see, I would love the ability to pay the tip portion of the bill with InKind credits (I would probably tip a larger percentage) and the addition of more restaurants that are on the InKind platform.  Some cities have many InKind restaurants available, while other cities have only 1-2 choices.

I also have some pretty far-fetched ideas for InKind…

Caesars Rewards Diamond Elite Members can Status Match to National Car Rental Emerald Club Executive Elite Status

Good afternoon everyone.  I just received a notification in my Caesars Rewards app that said “Match Your Status & Earn Reward Credits” with National Car Rental.  I clicked the Learn More button to learn more about the National Car Rental status match.  In addition to a status match, you can also “Earn Reward Credits for Qualifying Car Rentals” because “Caesars Rewards members earn 1 Reward Credit for every $1 they spend on Qualifying rental cars.”  I went through the status match enrollment process and here is the process.
