I’m so excited for Sunday! It’s the Eric Carle pre-release booking signing of his new book, The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse. I’m getting a few copies for family and I plan to give one to my boys’ art teacher. I stopped by the library and picked up the museum pass yesterday. I already pre-ordered my books so they will be waiting there for me. Everything is all set…now we just have to wait until Sunday!
A little status update on the Hotels.com deal that I wrote about earlier. Signing up for the promotion couldn’t have been easier. I filled out the information on-line and got the email with the code and instructions on how to submit the “paperwork”. I created PDF’s from my trips earlier this year to show that I stayed at several hotels this year and emailed them in. A day or two later, I received an email saying that I was accepted into the program. And yesterday I booked a hotel through Hotels.com for my college’s Alumni Weekend. I applied the code when checking out and a message appeared stating it will take a few weeks for the free hotel night to show up. I plan to use that in November or December for a little weekend getaway. Maybe we’ll head up to Portland, Maine for some clam chowder at Gilbert’s Chowder House. Yummy!
Sorry I haven’t had much to say about credit card promotions lately. It’s just been really slow on the credit card front. I keep checking to see if a new one (worth getting) has come up.
There is a US Airways Grand Slam Promotion going on right now. I haven’t looked much into because I don’t think it will be worth it to me. If you want to read more about it, check it out on the Million Mile Secrets site. I really liked his summary.
