Sunday Summary

Shoe Deal: Amazon 20% Off $80+ Athletic Shoes

This is a great deal that runs through March 4th. Amazon has some very low prices on great running shoes and this brings the total cost even lower.

Dubai Marathon Trip – British Airways First Class (Part 13)

British Airways has been an airline that I have wanted to fly on for a while. What better way to experience an international British Airways flight than in first class on their 747! It was elegant and sophisticated and you can read all about here!

Dubai Marathon Trip – Global Entry Rules (Part 14)

This was the final part of the Dubai Marathon Trip series! It was a great ride and I got to experience a lot along the way. Hopefully you have enjoyed it and may make some part of this trip as a future trip of your own. This part focused on how Global Entry helped me get home on time.

Earn 7x Ultimate Reward Points on Apple Accessories

If you own an iPad, iPhone, iPod, or a Mac (if you own one, you probably own a combination of them!), you can now get accessories for your Apple item from Staples and earn a minimum of 7x Ultimate Reward points while doing it! This is a great way to build up points while you buy something that is typically price protected.

Deal Alert: Garmin Forerunner 310XT w/HRM – $189

A great deal came out on one of the finest Garmin running watches. It went out of stock pretty fast so hopefully some of you got in on it before it disappeared. I have several running friends who use this watch and love it. Keep an eye on the blog for other deals like this that pop up!

Global Entry – The Key to Speed

This post details the information about Global Entry. It is a fantastic program and one which will make you appreciate it completely the first time you use it. Find out how you can get it for free, as well!

Southwest Airlines Cards – 50,000 Points!

Southwest Airlines has a great airline and awards program for domestic fares. I just recently flew them for the first time in years and got a great deal with points – four tickets that cost almost $1,000 for under 50,000 points. You can get 50,000 points from each of these 4 cards and if you get two of those cards, it can put you very close to the Southwest Airlines Companion Pass. This program allows you to have a companion fly with you for free, whether you used cash or points for your ticket.

Facebook Giveaway

We suspended the last giveaway due to not having enough entries. We will restart it tomorrow with some new terms and roll all the current entries into the new drawing. Be sure to check it out for a chance to win a $100 Amazon Gift card!

No Junk Mail Saturday? I can’t believe it, but I did not get any junk mail this week! Send me some of your junk mail offers so I have some for next week if I continue to get clean mail!

Thanks for following along this week!
