    Thanks for your comment! If you look at the bottom of the individual post– lower right side — you will see icons for emailing the post. Is this what you need? Thanks– chris

    Could you please add the option of being able to email articles as well as all the social media methods. Being in an office, I can’t use all that stuff on a business computer + my FB etc. accounts are ‘personal’. Thanks a lot.

    Anything that can make Security Checkpoints calmer is to be commended and I commend Springhill Suites for contributing the comfortable furniture for people repacking and putting on their jackets, shoes, and belts after going through security. However, when I hear the words Springhill Suites, I remember the terrible experience my wife and I had when staying in the Springhill Suites in Savannah, Georgia near the Convention Center. The free breakfast was pretty terrible, including scrambled eggs made from powdered eggs, discourteous people at the front desk, being assigned to handicapped room (suite) when we are not handicapped, no sign for the hotel on the street so I had to circle the block three times to find the drive-in entrance, etc. Perhaps this is the only Springhill Suites from Hell but I was amazed that Marriott would let this hotel function this way – I am a Marriott elite member for decades. The Assistant Manager of this hotel told me that the operator would not allow enough of a budget for the breakfast to have real rather than powdered eggs.

    You should first check to be sure that you are not assessed a fee for paying tuition with a credit card (as you are when paying taxes with one). If not, then I would use the Chase Sapphire Preferred card for a big spend like that. Why? Because of the broad array of airlines, hotels, etc that you can redeem points on via the Chase Ultimate Rewards program. You may also want to consider the Barclaycard because you will get 2x points per dollar spent, so 70,000 points in your case that you can use to pay for any travel related purchase. Hope that helps!
