Cost savings ideas

Heres something totally unrelated to health but great for making your wallet fatter. If you have good credit and one more card won't hurt you (and you have better control of your spending than your diet), consider signing up for a credit card that gives free IHG (includes holiday inn express) priority points. I did this several years ago and got 80000 free points. At the time, I think I had to spend $1000 on the card in 3 months and I got the points (paid immediately so no interest payment). The hotel rooms required about 10000-15000 pts, so I got about 5-6 free stays. The best I could find was 60000 pts now. There is a yearly fee, but most cards wave it the first year (mine did). I cancelled the card the minute I got my pts. I love freebies. Just make sure that you have good enough credit that you can take a ding on your credit score by getting an extra credit card. It will usually drop your score a tad and if you are on the border of good/bad credit, your current card holders might use this as an opportunity to increase your rate. It was the best freebie deal I have ever found though. Cost me nothing and got me free hotel rooms for vacation. Heres one site doing this, but there are a couple others out there:
