    Was wondering about their use of 'awhile' too! I just paid my May mortgage with a MC a few weeks ago :)

    And so it begins...we had someone ask us today to come stay with us before going on their Disney cruise in January. We had someone else ask to stay with us in February before their cruise. My parents want to come in July. Should I be charging for this? I think I need to become an airbnb host

    This sounds suspiciously like a business. Better apply for a couple more biz cards to pay your expenses.

    Omg the dis is freaking out for me on my phone. I’m constantly getting redirected to fake websites and it zooms and and won’t let me type.

    I tried to pay my SO with plastiq for "rent" and they wouldn't let me. I can't afford two Teslas either so even I won't be able to take advantage of that. lol

    I find on m phone that I have to carefully avoid touching the ad at the top of the page and it will stop doing that. Not even really "clicking" it, but just touching it causes that problem for me.

    Hahaha, could have been written by me! I am also a notary and didn't even think of it.

    We get the same out here. My family and friends affectionately refer to our home as the '(our last name) Bed & Breakfast'. We have three sets of guests coming in at different times in June, followed by one in July and another in Aug. Each of these visits are 1-2 weeks a piece so it's pretty much non-stop.

    Great churning day for me today! My 20k referral bonus for CIP#2 is showing as pending, and I was just instantly approved for the Barclay Arrival Plus! I was so convinced that I would be denied for too many inquiries. Now I'd really love to get that Plastiq email that it seems like everyone else did! Kind of crazy though - now working on $10k in MSR though :faint::faint::faint: But, over $4k of that will be done via Plastiq for our mortgage. Plus we're planning on putting in a well and converting our sprinkler over to it so hopefully at least part of that can be used for the MSR. Not to mention some out of pocket expenses for our two summer trips, summer camp expenses, two kiddo's birthdays, and I'm sure other expensive stuff I'm forgetting about :goodvibes Oh, and probably going for another Citi AA biz card in early June. Might have to go for the lower $2k offer on that and use a mortgage payment on it too.

    The Four Points was about a 15-20 minute walk for two adults going at an easy pace. I think it was exactly a mile from our room to the security stations. I was worried about crossing the on ramp for the freeway but there are two well-marked pedestrian crossings with a signal on both. No problems there. The distance was fine in the morning or after an afternoon break but not so easy after a 12- or 15-mile day of walking all over the parks!

    Overall I would say it’s fine for a group of young adults or even teenagers, but if you have little kids or anyone with mobility issues either stay somewhere closer or make sure to budget enough for uber/Lyft (about $8 each way with a decent tip) each day.

    Another notary here! Although I only do it for work right now, maybe I can expand it in the future....

    @SouthFayetteFan - The Alaska companion pass is MUCH different than the Southwest companion pass. The Alaska Airlines pass only allows one companion pass per YEAR!

    Lol sure why not. Everybody else is! No one bothered to ask if I’d like to go on their cruise with them :mad:

    It’s happening when I try to post or like someone else’s post. It even happens when I try to login sometimes. It isn’t from me clicking on the ads. It’ll open up a window where I “won something”
