To the uninitiated, chili can be dangerous. Once it begins to percolate like coffee in a coffee maker and the rumble before the storm begins, there is no going back. And, when that moment of truth arrives as you feel the bead of sweat on your forehead and your back snaps as your sphincter muscles tighten from the explosive decompression, you are thankful that you're not anywhere near the controls of an airplane.
These tips may not help the 121 crews, but is rather for the 91/135 crowd. Use a points & loyalty service such as Award Wallet to track all loyalty program points. Award Wallet will advise you of expiring points or upcoming promotions you may want to participate in. Also The Points Guy is worth keeping up with. TPG can also help you determine which credit card or mileage program is best suited for your travel.
The Points Guy has tips on how to parlay one program with another. Such as Platinum at Marriott will get you silver status on United. If you're not Platinum at Marriott you can request a challenge to obtain status. Something like eight nights in three months and you'll be awarded a higher status tier.

As I write this I have cooking in the microwave a mug meal pizza and for breakfast tomorrow I will have a mug meal doughnut. Cost me $1.50 for a small bag of flour, 3 bucks for cheese I can eat, $1 for a bottle of marinara, $1.75 for Italian seasoning, $1 for a bag of sugar, and $2.50 for a bottle of grape jelly. That's $11 with tax for pizza and jelly doughnuts 2 days in a row. Another 5 bucks for salads for lunch and I'm eating pretty good on the road.
