Free Disney Cruise Strategy

Gosh, this looks stress free

Cruises are the ultimate in stress-free vacationing. Change my mind.

All I have to do is get myself to port via airline with relaxing lounges on layovers and free uber rides from the terminal. Then I check-in and locate my room aboard a floating all(ish) inclusive resort, unpack, and literally not worry about a single thing until it’s over.

Capital One Leaked Your Data and Equifax Has a Fix

Gosh, I slacked off on July posts. Fear not, the credit world provided nothing short of excitement since the last update and the sarcasm will flow free.

The Capital One Leak Details

Another week, another data leak. Capital One was the lucky winner this time to have its woefully inadequate data security breached by a hacker. But wait, TDWise, you are a military travel hacking blog, not a cyber security blog, how do you know that Cap...
