Credit Card Rewards vs. Hotels.com Coupons: Which is Better For You?

2018-01-08T02:12:58Z

Credit cards that offer rewards are a popular option for many people. If you are going to be paying interest for your purchases, you might as well get something out of the deal. While there are many different reward programs to choose from, store loyalty options are growing increasingly popular.

Hotels.com Coupon Codes: Are They Better?

Instead of credit card rewards, there are travel promo codes available to anyone on most major coupon code websites. There’s this one for Hotels.com promo codes that offers a $100 instant rebate, at least according to Coupon Coder.

Oktoberfest in Vermont: What You Need to Know

2018-01-08T02:01:29Z

This year’s Oktoberfest is coming faster than you think. Here’s all the info you need to know to enjoy yourself this fall:

How Do We Get There?

What am I? Your travel agent? If you’re more than one state away, you should consider catching a flight and staying in a hotel. We found Priceline.com to be the cheapest overall. And use a priceline promo code when you’re booking, so that you have more money for beer.
If you’re local and you’re asking if there’s going to be parking, then no there won’t be any official parking put on by the event. But if you know Burlington, and since you said you were local at the beginning of this paragraph, you know that there are tons of parking garages all within…

What’s a Baconfest without Kevin Bacon?

2016-09-14T04:39:18Z

The Popular Actor Can’t Make it to Baconfest

The town of Brattleboro tried really, really hard to get Kevin Bacon to come to town for ‘Baconfest’, the annual celebration of delicious pork-related foods.

This is only the 3rd annual Baconfest, so it’s not like Kevin Bacon is turning his back on a century of history. But the town of Brattleboro is sad about not getting their big catch. They launched a massive social-media campaign to try and get the Footloose actor to come to Vermont and partake in the festivities.
The campaign reached Bacon, who is currently filming in Vancouver (i.e. that’s the Canadian city that likes to riot and have unaffordable property values). What made him choose that terrible, terrible city over a delectable bacon…

Vermont Protestors Successfully Stop a Pipeline….For a Day

2016-09-14T04:13:56Z

About 55 to 60 protestors in New Haven have successfully gotten workers to stop working on the Vermont Natural Gas Pipeline.

The protests took place at the Addison County Worksite. However, it’s only a temporary win. Workers may have quit for the day, but it doesn’t mean the project won’t go forward.
The natural gas pipeline will run 41 miles from Williston to Middlebury.
But there’s more to the protest than just the Vermont pipeline. Protestors said that they were standing in unison with the Standing Rock Lakota Sioux people in North Dakota, whom are protesting their own natural gas pipeline in their state.
Both pipelines are being built by Michel’s Construction, so the move was to send a statement about both pipelines running through their respective states.…
