I was able to get on an earlier flight from ORD to DTW – the Platinum Elite Status with Northwest is paying off. It was a full flight but I was afforded a seat. Since the kids had the day off from school due to the Memorial Day holiday, I wanted to make sure that I spend some time with the family.
It is these small investments with the kids and the family that will pay big dividends later. Many times when I travel, the account slowly starts to deplete. Therefore, it is important that I re-invest.
