The cost to MS a month in New York City

In my early 20’s, I met up in New York City with Jeff, one of my father’s good friends from his college days.

Shop until you’re dropped: Chase Financial Review freezes account

Update: See Chase Financial Review: Results are in for the conclusion to this story. Recently, my wife opened a couple of new Chase credit cards; among them was a Chase Marriott Rewards card.

Part of the reason she opened the Southwest card was because one of the ways to earn Southwest Companion Pass qualifying points is by referring friends for the Southwest cards. We hoped that at some point down the road, she would get referral links. But how soon would she…
