re: Valley of Fire, Hoover Dam, Red Rock Canyon from LAS - TheChiefHasArrived
Yes Valley of Fire, sorry (edited OP). It seems like driving-wise, Valley of Fire and Hoover Dam would work better, no? https://roadtrippers.com/stories/the-perfect-las-vegas-day-trip-nevadas-valley-of-fire-state-park...

They are all kind of opposite directions from each other, is this something reasonable to do during the day? Is there any of these that I could skip ...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - TheChiefHasArrived
Actually looking at it it didn't become delinquent until 2014. We were under the impression it was 2012 and I was inclined to just let it fall off but I guess they took a while to officially call it. I was originally just going to let it fall off and use non-Chase credit cards but I think we'll just...

re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - TheChiefHasArrived
Well the wife has an $800 delinquent Chase CC from college that kept her from being approved. Easy enough to pay now and definitely worth $800 for the companion pass. Her credit is 730 or so. What I'm wondering is if we pay it off what are the odds of her being approved for both cards, especially by...

Companion pass is a game-changer. Between the points, the flexibility of SW, and the companion the value is unreal. Mine expires on new years, making the wife get it starting next year....

re: Discover card...anyone have one? - TheChiefHasArrived
It's nice that they do (or did) cashback match the first year so you get double cash back. So for example, right now you'd effectively getting 10% off at bars & restaurants which is huge. Also their Discover Deals is the best cashback online portal I've ever had, 5-10% at most online retailers not n...

Harmony + Echo + DirecTVNOW + (Amazon v Apple v Roku) - TheChiefHasArrived
I've just switched from DirecTV to DirecTVNOW. One thing I do miss is some of the Alexa functionality with my Harmony Hub that I could say "Alexa turn on ESPN" and it would come on. I know this isn't possible with DirecTV now because there are no channels, but which of the big 3 smart devices could ...
