Secret: How to get the status upgrade seat
If you’re like me, you love perks! Perks will keep me loyal to anyone and everyone. For airlines, the perks are often free upgrades. Now there’s the little upgrades that give you more legroom, then there’s THE upgrades...the beloved First Class seat.
Getting your butt into that seat might not be as straightforward as you think. See your name on the board? Smile at the gate attendant with sympathy as he or she helps a line of people. Wait patiently to the side. When they’re free, pop over and comment on how busy it is, etc. Then ask when they’ll know if you will be receiving the upgrade. They’ll ask your name. If there’s a seat available, your odds of getting it are higher than anyone else’s, not matter what order they seem to be in on that screen!

Secret: How to tip your maid within company guidelines without looking like a cheapskate
If your company only allows a certain dollar amount for tips, there’s a simple way around it: Skip a few days! That way, you can beef up the tip on the days you do use the service, but spread it out on your expense report to look like you stayed within the limits. If you’re wondering why you’d tip a maid...TIP THEM! They’re doing a service just like a waiter, bartender or car wash.

Secret: How to change a work trip without losing the rate
If you travel for work, often you have to book hotels weeks or months in advance in order to get a good rate. When you do this and then have to change those plans, using the company’s travel source can create drama. Increased rates, unavailable changes and random fees are common. Instead, call up the actual hotel or rental car company! They will want to keep your business. Simply ask if the rate is available with the changes you need to make and if not, let them know that you will have to switch hotels/companies if they can’t work that out. You’ll be put on hold and they’ll come back with what you asked for almost every time. Cost to you? Zero dollars!

Secret: Get free gigs of data
In this competitive market, cell phone companies are falling all over themselves to get and/or keep your business. If you aren’t calling their bluff, you’re losing money! Simple fix? Call them up! Ask if there are any specials available that you aren’t yet receiving. When they’re done, say “I’m seeing all these companies doing unlimited data now, how come you’re offer me so few?” I went from 8 to 12 gigs in one phone call with this simple question. Cost increase? Zero dollars.
