A few days ago, my parents told me of an opportunity they had to stay in Hawaii at a friend’s timeshare for next to nothing. The trouble? The only availability was in a few days, and flights ran no less than $650 a piece. Not bad for last-minute tickets, but who wants to pay that? I sent my parents to Hawaii at the last minute for $10.
Just recently, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced that it will soon allow anyone to become a member of PreCheck through an expansion of the service, which allows you to go through airport security at 40 airports nationwide without taking off your shoes, removing your 3-1-1 bag, taking off your belt and is a much faster process. For $85 for five years, it seems like a great deal – but in reality, don’t: for $15 more, you get way, way so much more.
