Enjoy. Personally, I found it took two visits to the Bacchanal to fully appreciate its offerings. After 2 visits, I wouldn't rush back. Maybe in a year or so? I do think that the best value buffets...

So the problem with good casino restaurants in Vegas is they tend not to be "subsidized" by the gambling revenues of the casinos. In other words, they're not cheap. Like Gordon Ramsay's steakhouse in...

I assume that if the longest you ever keep gas in your cans is two or three weeks, you don't need this product?

Nothing like a "research project" when I want to fly Frontier. But that's OK, as long as they keep the dirt cheap fares (which, I don't expect them to do, since their ancillary revenue can't be very...

Through the "Wyndham trick," my wife and I each get $100 a year dinning credit with Cesears as Diamond members. We've used it at the Bacchanal. I'm not a huge fan of buffets, but to describe it as...

Is there a cost-effective and relatively reliable way to convert a Happy card into a Visa or MC gift card, like at Hoime Depot?

Gasbuddy right now is showing Costco at $3.01, Safeway at $3.11 and Maui Oil at $3.13, That's pretty typical from my experience. Everyone else is at nosebleed levels, which is also typical. I can't...

Well, Frontier's fares often seem about half those of Southwest, so there could be plenty of wiggle room. Frontier could decide to make it a little more expensive to buy one way fares than...

I know it's a little cheaper, but I can't honestly recommend doing that, either. The line almost always sucks -- in no universe would it be worth the effort unless you're the kind of person who...

Well, I find that the average human is pretty bad at math and, let's face it, the average Frontier customer is not a math scholar. That said, while Frontier customers tend not to be card-carrying...

On one of my visits to Maui last year, after leaving my "free weekend" at the W-A, I was heading to a house rental in east Maui. Since I had a Costco gift card, had to transit Kahului anyway, and...

I tend to agree, but the Wailea hotels have jacked up their gotcha parking fees so high that it might not make sense to rent a car there unless you're planning on sightseeing those days.

I honestly don't understand the fascination with Costco on Maui. You won't have a kitchen to cook in at the W-A, so what are you going to buy there to eat that's so wonderful? The plate lunch prices...

I was pricing out some Frontier fares for a family member and the discount den savings are pretty random. For a Saturday flight back from Vegas, the DD savings was something like $45 one way. On...

I just did a search looking for cheapo Frontier flights and was similarly annoyed. When I looked at the cheapest fares in one market, it was $3 more booked as roundtrip. Weird. While mildly...

I'm a bit surprised they admitted shooting down the plane -- especially so quickly. I know the evidence was overwhelming, but it's still surprising.
