You think I would have learned my lesson when I procrastinated on Deal Girl’s Passport. But 10 weeks out from Spring Break in Gran Canaria and we still haven’t applied for Deal Kid’s new passport. This week I got around to looking for an appointment and learned (again) that it takes at least 6 weeks to get a passport appointment in the metro DC area. That would require expediting the passport and an extra $60: and still would cut it close.
The good news is that I DID learn something from my experience with Deal Girl last year: rural areas have much less demand for passport applications. Ten minutes of research located a post office in a trailer that had an appointment available this Saturday. So instead of spending $60 on expediting a passport we are heading to a Hyatt Place in the outer burbs. By spending $68 we’ll get not only Deal Kid’s passport processed this Saturday (saving the expediting fee) but also get a stay credit and a mini-getaway. A jump on Diamond status while taking care of the to-do list? Win-win!
