Today, I wanted to detail one of my favorite ''travel hacks" of all time, receiving the Southwest Companion Pass. With Southwest now flying internationally in the Caribbean, the value of the Companion Pass continues to increase. Essentially, the companion pass allows you to take along a friend or loved one with you for free every time you travel Southwest Airlines. The best part is, they can still fly with you even if you're using points to fly!
Delta SkyMiles, one of the major mileage programs here in America, is often given the derisive nickname "SkyPesos" because of their perceived worthlessness. While there are some major gripes with the SkyMiles program, I'm here to tell you that there are benefits to collecting SkyMiles and some very powerful uses of them around the world. With the recent 50,000 SkyMile sign-up offer from American Express, we thought it would be a good time to dive into the SkyMiles program in detail.

In my post-college years, I've reflected on my four years at school as my formative years because it forced me to learn how to live on a tight budget.
Ok, tight budget might be selling it short. I was straight-up poor. My low point was doing an entire load of laundry in the bathroom sink of my sophomore year dorm room. My roommate wasn't thrilled when our room became my personal clothesline to dry them, but I must say, they came out (mostly) clean.
I was once an undergrad without credit. I thought living credit-free was a good thing- no debt, living within my means, saving money. However, when I tried to rent an apartment my first semester off-campus, I found myself asking my parents to co-sign, since I wasn't deemed 'creditworthy' enough to rent on my own. That is when I got my first credit card (an SPG Amex) and began the slow march to adulthood. Since it's almost time to return to college for many readers, we thought it would be a nice idea to highlight a few key lessons on how credit works, and some good student credit cards out today.
