Spurred by a life changing event (well, kind of), I decided to run away for a short trip. Perhaps the most life changing part of the trip was that I paid $300 for a ticket from Singapore.
THREE HUNRED. FOR A 1-HR FLIGHT.
To make things worse, the price had increased by $40 overnight since I last checked the night prior but decided I know better and told myself that prices won’t go up when I was asleep. I’m still convincing myself that some higher powers up there wanted me to max out the Amex offer of 3 bonus miles per $1 spent, up to $300. Hello miles, goodbye money.
