We are kicking off a brief Friday Five with some flight sales, a dream home competition, and a credit card FYI! Let’s dive in.
1. HGTV Smart Home Giveaway
2. APR Poll
This was an interesting poll I ran across that has some scary numbers: almost half of the people with credit cards don’t know what their APR is. As a reminder, APR, or annual percentage rate, is basically the interest rate that banks charge consumers for carrying a balance. This is reason number 1 why I recommend paying off your card each month if you can, and getting a card with a low APR if you can’t! Read more about APR and how it is calculated here.
3. Frontier Sale
Frontier is a great little airline for last minute trips, just go easy on the packing to save yourself some big bucks. They are having a $15 sale that includes some great flights around the nation, but for all the BHM folks, $15 will get you to Philadelphia. Not bad. Head here to book your getaway.
4. Southwest Sale
Southwest is having another summer sale, so this is just your weekly reminder to go double check any Southwest flights you booked and see if you can rebook them for less! Also, remember that on the 31st Southwest releases flights through the rest of 2018. Put in a calendar notification to go book your holiday travel, because those flights get expensive fast.
5. Reno update
Last and definitely not least, here are some driveway update pictures. We finished putting the mailbox in and doing the front flower bed, and today I added some concrete to the driveway and Sarah planted some more flowers up near the house. And we snagged some 5 gallon buckets of paint from Home Depot’s Memorial Day sale on paint ($40 off 5 gallon buckets!) and we will be going in to get those colored this fall. Want to help us paint the outside of our house? We are taking interviews now. 🙂
