The holidays are drawing near and we’re looking for the goods to help get us ready. From house cleaning to dinner plans and more—here’s the scoop on the must-have tips, trends and advice to get your “home for the holidays” ready.
Clean up: BISSELL CrossWave Cordless Max Multi-Surface Wet Dry Vac
It vacuums and washes your sealed hard floors at the same time. It’s battery operated, charges right in the docking station and depending on which mode you use, you can clean freely all around the house for about 30 minutes at a time, before you have to charge it again. Just press the button and go, plus it has two tanks so the fresh water never mixes with the dirty water. It also comes with this multi-surface formula that can even refresh area rugs, but it works with all of these different formulas depending on your need. Get it for $399 at bissellcrosswave.com.
Dinner: Boston Market
They are making it super easy no matter how different your traditions may look this year with a ton of options for every type of celebration. You can get home-style meals without any of the time consuming prep that pretty much keeps us all from spending time with our family and guests. The whole roasted turkey meal for 12, that can feed your entire extended family and then some for as little as $12.49 a person. It’s fully cooked and includes all of the side staples – all you have to do is re-heat it and they even give you the instructions on how to do that. Order online at bostonmarket.com and either pick it up in restaurant prior to the holiday or have it shipped directly to your door during the Thanksgiving week.
Travel: The New United Gateway℠ Card from United Airlines and Chase
This card is giving back to neighbors in need this holiday season, through the launch of their Gateway to Giving campaign. Championed by celebrity chef Carla Hall, Chase and United are aiming to educate cardmembers on how to best support people facing hunger across the U.S. and will be providing a donation of $700,000 dollars to Feeding America. This contribution will help local food banks provide nearly seven million meals to families in United’s hub cities across the country. Since food is such a central part of the holidays and travel too, new United Gateway cardmembers will earn 3x the miles for every $1 spent on groceries through the end of September 2021. And, there is no annual fee and the Gateway card is loaded with other benefits which are perfect for all travel needs, both in the air and on the ground.
