I have been looking for a web host that provided 10Gbps Unmetered VPS in the Denver area and found exactly what I was looking for. In addition to unmetered 10Gbps, the provider also offers unmetered 1Gbps and 100Mbps VPS plans at affordable rates. Check them out if you are in the need for an unmetered VPS in Denver.
Google Pay is offering a $10 credit for new users of the service when you follow my referral link. I find this app absolutely fantastic and a must have. Google Pay allows you to store your credit cards and use your phone’s NFC capabilities to make payment. Most credit/debit cards in the United States are supported. Even credit cards issued in other countries work too! Most of my German credit cards are supported and support for new cards is always being added. If your credit card does not have tap-and-go functionality, Google Pay will still support it.
I use Google Pay on a daily basis here in Germany and when I travel. More and more merchants have begun accepting tap-and-go technology since it is so fast and requires no PIN or signature. The best thing the app is you can select a specific card to use. Even better by default, unlock your phone, hold it up to the credit card terminal and your default card will be used.
If you haven’t yet tried Google Pay, I have a referral link that will give you a $10 credit for signing up. Simply use my referral link http://g.co/paypromo/GATMK3XR to receive the $10 credit. Not bad for a very handy and free credit card wallet that allows you to carry less in your wallet. Now you can just use your phone to make payments fast and securely instead.
Searching for the best Delta Gold AmEx credit card bonus? You found it! 70,000 Bonus Miles and a $50 credit await you, an exclusive offer!
Well my avid readers, the bonus is back and is available to anyone who uses my exclusive referral link! You won’t find this bonus available on the American Express site, only via my exclusive referral link. So here is how this works.
1.) You signup for the American Express Delta Gold credit card via my link.
2.) Spend $2,000 in the first 3 months and you will get 60,000 bonus miles. If you make a Delta purchase of ANY value, a $50 credit will also be applied to your statement.
3.) To sweeten the deal, if you spend another $1,000 in the first 6 months of the card, you will receive an additional 10,000 mile bonus! Not only that, you earn 1 point for every dollar you spend on everyday purchases and 2 points for every purchase made through Delta, this is in addition to this unbelievable signup bonus.
I love collecting points, especially from my credit cards. They allow me to travel and see some amazing destinations at the fraction of the cost had I paid in cash. One of my favorite cards is the American Express Delta Gold credit card. Since obtaining the card, I’ve reached Platinum Medallion status. Even better, I have flown Delta One (Delta’s first class cabin) ten times now. All within 2 years of obtaining this invaluable credit card.
When I first signed up, I received a 60,000 bonus for spending $4,000 which was fantastic. That alone was worth one round trip ticket in economy class when flying internationally. When I got to the airport, I was upgraded to Delta One at no additional charge. Talk about a great card! Well, that offer didn’t last long and soon the bonus dropped to 30,000 miles, boo.
This new deal is BETTER than when I originally signed up and BEATS the other offers currently available. Other deals require you to spend $3,000 in 3 months and only get 30,000 bonus miles. If you spend that same $3,000 using my exclusive referral link, not only will you get the regular 30,000 bonus miles but an additional 40,000 on top of it. And of course if you make at least one purchase via Delta, you will get a $50 credit card statement credit as well.
Again, this exclusive deal is not available anywhere else. You will not find it in other travel blogs and those deals that you will find will only give you a fraction of the points that my link will provide. If you are lucky, you may find a deal on the American Express website but it will not be as good as this one!
This card is a must have for anyone who loves being treated like royalty from Delta. Priority boarding, access to Delta lounges, access to SkyTeam lounges, no foreign transaction fees, purchase protection, free travel insurance, and even free car rental insurance! This card is a must have for the serious adventurer. It is my go-to credit card that I use anytime I travel abroad due to the amazing perks that come with it. Not only do I save some serious money but I travel for free more often too.
So what are you waiting for? Your free vacation of your dreams is waiting, sign up today before this offer expires! Share http://refer.amex.us/KRISTLRn11?XLINK=MYCP with your friends to get a bonus of your own after you signup for the card.
I usually don’t do this but living in Europe where Uber is few and far between is hard.
I found an app fairly similar to Uber called mytaxi, www.mytaxi.com. The app is available for Android, iPhone, and I think Windows. When you first sign up, use promo code topher.laz and you will get a €20 credit towards your first ride. I only get €10 for referring you but still, it’s something! Wanted to share this because I just used mytaxi to get from the airport to the hotel and searched high and low for a promotional code and could not find one. Hopefully this helps someone, again the promo code for a €20 credit towards your first ride is topher.laz
It is always a pain being in a new city and trying to figure out transportation but it seems mytaxi is in a lot of the larger European cities. I used it in Rome just today and highly recommend it.
This is a repost from my friend’s site at Tasteless Traveler. I felt this repost was necessary as I too have had horrid customer service experience with hotels.com. It is an awful company and should NEVER be used. Sleep in the street if you must, just avoid hotels.com. In fact, boycott Expedia as well, the owners of hotels.com as they too do not care about what their subsidiary does. I will post my own experience regarding hotels.com soon!
Original Post from Tasteless Traveler:
When booking a hotel for a stay in a foreign land, you have a lot of choices, unfortunately one of those choice that seems to pop up and tempt you with low prices is hotels.com. Let me start off by saying I have booked many stays all over the world, I usually use Orbitz for hotels or HostelWorld for hostels. I have never had any issue with these other services, they have always been top notch when there is a problem with a hotel and always resolve the problem in a satisfactory manner. This was the first time, and the last time I will ever use hotels.com as they are the exact opposite.
The reason I used hotels.com was simply because they had the lowest price by a wide margin. I will usually use Orbitz but because this was a last minute booking the price differences were huge. When we arrived in Berlin to try and get to the hotel we booked, we were shocked to find out the Berlin Marathon was happening that weekend. This meant a lot of road closures, even worse, the roads to our hotel, City Inn, were all closed. Usually this isn’t a problem but since we had a vehicle, we needed to park it at the hotel and weren’t about to park it at some seedy parking garage as the employee originally suggested which was 5 km away!
We tried calling City Inn to try and find a way to the hotel, we figured if anyone knew what roads would be opened, it would be the staff at our hotel. The staff member that answered the phone was helpful at first, originally suggesting a parking garage over 5 km away. This wasn’t acceptable to us, we booked this hotel specially for the parking garage, we weren’t about to leave our rental car so far away in an area that wasn’t safe. After a few minutes of explainig why we didn’t want to park so far away, he began guiding us towards the hotel from what was our current location but once again, we hit a road closure. After a few more minutes of him trying to navigate us around the closures, he simply gave up and hung up on us. We tried calling City Inn again and once the employee realized it was us, he hung up.
We called back once again to ask to speak to a manager and were yet again hung up on. The individual hung up on us a total of 3 times simply because he refused to assist us to get to the hotel! This was unacceptable and since it was getting late, we decided to stop at the first hotel we saw a little further from the city center which ended up being a Budget Ibis.
Since we no longer required the City Inn reservations, we sent an email to hotels.com explaining the situation but never received a response. After arriving home, I contacted American Express to reverse the charge since we had not received any response from hotels.com. Let me make this clear, if you cannot get to a hotel that you purchased and it is not the fault of your own, i.e. every road to the hotel is closed and the staff at the hotel refuses to assist, it is the right of the customer for a full refund. It is one thing to book a hotel and not show up because you decided you no longer want it but it’s another when there is no possible route to the hotel.
Hotels.com ended up fighting the chargeback (of course) and winning. Surprising because they didn’t seem to have any interest in responding to our emails but if it’s going to cost them money, all of the sudden they respond. We are out $221.98 as they charged us for the FULL booking. Neither City Inn nor Hotels.com have attempted to assist us in refunding the $221.98 for a hotel room we couldn’t use. Any other service would have gladly refunded you the full amount if the Hotel was not as described, not in operation, or there was no way to get to the hotel but not hotels.com.
I recommend never using hotels.com, they will not assist you in the least but should your booking have a problem, you will receive nothing but radio silence. Emails to their customer service department go unanswered and calling their only available phone number, in Ireland will cost a fortune. I would have called their customer service number had I thought the complaint would have yielded something but there are many other horror stories out there of being on hold for HOURS and then being hung up on when you do finally get through to a real human.
I would equate hotels.com to a scam, they are more than happy to take your money but if you need anything other than to pay them, they will have zero interest in assisting you. Stay away from hotels.com unless you enjoy flushing your money down the toilet and receive nothing in return. Customer service is awful from any European company, you are better off using an American company for booking hotels, you have more rights and they treat customers right.
