Caesars Diamond Celebration dinner: easy to use and worth the match

This morning, I published a post about some Las Vegas Easy Wins. In that post and in my recent post about status matching to Wyndham and then Caesars Diamond, I noted that you can enjoy a $100 “Diamond Celebration Dinner”. I know some readers were curious about how it worked (as was I) and it turned out to be a simple and smooth process. If you’re going to visit any location with a Caesars property…

It’s not as good as the insane deal last fall, but if you missed that and/or are just looking for…

Best Fee-Free Travel Credit Card

In response to my recent post “What is the best credit card?” a reader pointed out that I should have included the Wells Fargo Propel card on the list.  I agree, but for one thing: even though the Propel is issued by Wells Fargo, it’s an Amex card.  The point of that post was to recommend a single rewarding card (or sometimes two) for those who don’t want to carry around lots of different cards. …
