Shopping: for darned near anything


Personal Capital – Track your investments, bank accounts, credit cards, and net worth. I use the website most days.

Mint – Track your spending

Cell Phone:


Republic Wireless: My wife and I spend less than $30 combined on cell phone service. And calls on wifi are free worldwide. (works well in hospital basements where the wifi signal bests the cell phone signal. Many new phones and plans late July, 2016



AirBNB: Stay in someone’s treehouse, Airstream, apartment, or house.


Hotwire: I book many hotel stays with Hotwire at Deep Discounts


Priceline: Name your own price with the Priceline Negotiator


Orbitz: Great savings on flight and hotel bundles

Travelocity: Save with the Gnome

Hilton: Hilton Honors Points are wonderful.


IHG Hotel Group: Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza, Kimpton, etc… Lowest price by booking direct.
