New business travelers first should sign up for a preferred hotel and airline program and focus their travel dollars there. Then, they should get a Chase Sapphire card or American Express Platinum card to earn points on travel and transfer those points to the hotel or airline program for redemption.

“Credit of debit?”ï»¿ It’s all very confusing for American shoppers. But the news about a massive point-of-sale data theft at Target makes one thing very, very clear: Always choose “credit” when the cashier asks!
It’s brilliant to turn mundane ingredients (sugar, corn syrup, baking soda, peanuts) into delicious candy. Follow these steps and you’ll be amazed at the result!
I justify spending six times more on the Vertex 100 for a simple reason: It’ll keep up with the heavy water use in my house. I’m hoping I’ll never have to worry about hot water as long as I live here. The fact that it saves over $100 per year due to energy-efficient design is just icing on the cake.

The Champion is engineered to reduce the most common causes of clogs, and it has proved effective and “hands-off” in my real-world testing.
