Ever since I opened an Amex Platinum Card in March, my family and I have been milking the travel benefits. The Platinum Card is arguably the best credit card for airport lounges, with free access to Priority Pass lounges, Delta Sky Clubs (when flying Delta), Airspace Lounges, Escape Lounges and the Centurion Lounge. These benefits along […] The post The Joy of Airport Lounges appeared first on MIXED MONEY ARTS. ...

Warning: This post is a rant about why Dave Ramsey’s rant about credit cards is wrong.  No offense, Dave.  Just my opinion.   The other day I came across Dave Ramsey’s Philosophy of Credit Card Use, where he tells a caller that most credit card users are prone to two problems.  The first one is that […] The post Mixed Money Arts vs. Dave Ramsey on the Philosophy of Credit Card Use ...

Last Black Friday my fiancé and I purchased our first serious drone, the DJI Mavic Pro.  And boy is she a beauty.  At a top speed of 40 mph and a range of over 4 miles, she can give a flying duck a run for its money.  But not only is she fun to fly, […] The post Our New Videographer – The DJI Mavic Pro appeared first on MIXED MONEY ...
