My wife and I just got back from two days at Caesar’s Atlantic City; our son is at his grandparents, so we thought we’d get away for two days to the shore. This is not a review of the hotel, because honestly I don’t think we’d go there again. It was nice enough, but Atlantic City is not the nicest city on the shore, and the nightlife is not so great. The reason I’m bringing it up is I found a great deal on Travelzoo. I’ve become a Travelzoo VIP, after only purchasing two local deals from them, one for a massage and one for a restaurant. When you become a VIP, you get targeted for special local deals, and one of the most recent ones was for a night at Caesar’s AC, with $58 per night dining credit and spa passes for two ($100 value). When I called in with the promo code, that I got from Travelzoo, the rooms were only $120 per night, so we actually made money on the deal. (I splurged on dinner, so we didn’t actually make money…) I get a lot of crappy or unwanted travel subscriptions and newletters, but Travelzoo’s is quality, often has sharply discounted deals, and targets deals much better than other sites, and is definitely one I recommend (I get no compensation from them).
Time for some shameless link-whoring. We don’t have affiliate credit card links on this site, and don’t make much more than beer money from google adsense, so using our links is appreciated; however if you’d rather not, we’re not offended.

If you’ve been thinking about getting in either the 30k Amex SPG personal or business cards, please send your contact information to my email, firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll send you the referral link.
Similarly, if you’re interested in either the Chase Sapphire Preferred or the Chase Freedom (with $200 signup bonus), send me your info and I’ll send you a signup link.
I have all 4 of the above cards, and would not likely pimp a card I wouldn’t personally use. Remember that active duty servicemembers get annual fees waived on Amex cards and on Chase cards. All four of the above cards have a panoply of reviews, so I won’t bore you with those. These offers expire on June 30th.
Finally, two posts talking about Singapore Airlines Krisflyer Miles. First, FrequentMiler posted about how to get 17,000 Singapore miles for $10! Then, Milevalue post about an amazing sweetspot in the Singapore Airlines award chart for US-based flyers. Check them out!
