If it weren’t for Julianne’s friend George spontaneously flying into town to save the day at the end of “My best friend’s wedding”, it would have been a very mediocre movie.
But the final two scenes are well worth the watch. (This is one of them.)
Those types of grand gestures make for a great movie scene, but in real life finances get in the way of making them a reality more often than not. Especially when they’re last minute.
What if they weren’t expensive at all?
As a result of signing up for one credit card, I was able to:
Total cost of those 6 spontaneous flights: $68 (Not each… Total.) Had we paid cash for those flights it would have been about $1800.
There’s nothing like having a friend or family member call about something important/exciting, and being able to tell them 20 minutes later that you’ve got your flight booked.
The secret to being able to do that without being independently wealthy:
If you liked the process, try it again.
If not – shred the card and go back to your old way of paying for stuff. It’s not like you turned your life upside down to experiment with the idea.
PS – I mentioned that the final two scenes were what made the whole movie. Here is the other one.
