Win a $150 gift card from American AirlinesWednesday, April 20, 2011
Powered by the jump in oil prices, the cost of getting around is rising faster than most family budgets can keep up.
Even driving is pricey. I just spent $75 to gas up the SUV and stopped there only because I couldn't stand the thought of spending more than that in one stop at the pump. Fortunately, I don't drive much, so that tank should last a while.
However, I do fly a lot and airline ticket prices are jumping as airlines try to recoup their rising fuel costs (as if it wasn't bad enough the airlines nickle and dime us with an ever-growing list of add-on fees).
In an attempt to help folks afford a family vacation this summer, I invite you to head over to TravelingMom.com where we're giving away a $150 gift card for a flight on American Airlines. American Airline's giveaway is to promote its new service from Los Angeles to Shanghai and nine U.S. cities. American launched the service with this flashmob scene in LA. Watch the video here.
