Hotel check-in can be a pleasant or horrible experience.  Here are the Top 5 Things You Don’t Want To Hear At Hotel Check-In:

5. “The Dollar Store is across the street.” When you ask housekeeping for another set of toiletries.

4. “You have to call to make sure we have a driver.”  When you call to ask about a shuttle pickup.  Even though the website states the hotel offers a 24-hour complimentary shuttle, 7 days a week.

3. “I don’t think that spider is poisonous.” When you tell the front desk clerk there is a large spider web and spider in your room.

2.  “Our hotel doesn’t have an elevator.” Said to the couple in their 70’s who are part of a 12-Day bus tour and have two very large suitcases.

1. “The rate will be X, sir.”  Replied to the man who walked up and asked how much a room was for the night.  Which is $40 less than what you are paying for the same room.

Chase Sapphire Preferred

The Chase Sapphire Preferred is the best card for beginning travel hackers. It is the first card you should get to start traveling for free because the welcome offer is 60,000 points (after spending $4,000 in the first three months).
 
My favorite perks about this card are earning 2X points on travel and dining, no foreign transaction fees, and transferring points to 13 airline and hotel partners like Hyatt, United, and Southwest.
