On The Road / Hotel Resort Fees
« on: November 19, 2020, 12:13:43 PM »
I am assuming like me you may detest hotel resort fees that are tacked on to the hotel price and taxes.  In fact when I tried to book a hotel in the jersey shore recently using chase points it did not even let me use points to book the $45 daily resort fee >:( making it even more frustrating.  This fee is even charged now in the winter even though they advertise that the resort fee covers among other things access to the pool(closed) and beach(freezing) ???

Anyway I wanted to know what experience/strategies people have had/implemented in trying to get the resort fee waived or credited back etc... 

for example trying to email manager or guest relations prior to the stay or maybe after the stay etc....

As you can see above some of the lesser known(smaller) companies are substantially lower priced.  However at what expense? what has been you experience if any with them: 

Are they less up front with fees, taxes, insurance etc..?
Are they tougher on CDW insurance meaning do they want written proof of coverage or otherwise they make you purchase their CDW insurance ?
Are they tougher on international travelers with foreign passport requiring for example written liability coverage or else they make you purchase their liability coverage?

Any other thoughts, experiences?

General Discussion / Jewelry for DW
« on: March 12, 2018, 06:05:09 PM »
DW wants custom 2-tone ring that is most durable; in other words least likely to fade or tarnish over time.  She wants to wear it everyday

If value of metal is not a factor whats the best option: stainless steel, 10k gold, 14k gold, pewter? other metals ?

General Discussion / soft baseballs
« on: August 24, 2017, 01:29:27 PM »
looking for soft baseball that wont hurt my children when it hits them yet durable enough to be hit with a bat and last a long time and also travel as close as possible the same distance as a real baseball.

My experience has been that either the balls are too soft and don't replicate a real baseball or if they are more and less same and size and weight as a baseball they fall apart after a day of batting practice etcc...

any recommendations?
