Mike Trout’s Expected $432 Million MLB Deal Will Make History

A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that Mike Trout and the Los Angeles Angels are close to finalizing a $ 432 million, 12-year contract that would shatter the record for the largest deal in North American sports history.

The deal was disclosed Tuesday by a person familiar with the negotiations who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the agreement had not been finalized and had not been announced.

Trout would top the new $ 330 million, 12-year contract between Bryce Harper and the Philadelphia Phillies, and his $ 36 million average annual value would surpass Zack Greinke’s $ 34.4 million in a six-year deal with Arizona that started in 2016.

Progress toward an agreement was first reported by ESPN.

Trout’s deal includes a signing bonus and would supersede the $ 144.5 million, six-year contract that had been set to pay him $ 66.5 million over the next two seasons.

Is Anyone Surprised? YouTube Had to Deal With an ‘Unprecedented Volume’ of Violent Videos After Christchurch Terrorist Attack

The Washington Post has reported that YouTube dealt with an “unprecedented volume” of violent videos after last week’s terrorist attack in New Zealand.

On Friday, a gunman murdered 50 worshippers at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. Currently, 35 more are hospitalized with 12 in critical condition, including a 4-year-old-girl. In an appalling act of cruelty, the murders were recorded and posted to social media channels around the world. As the news unfolded, the footage spread at an alarming rate. After the weekend, Facebook has reported that they removed an astonishing 1.5 million videos of the attack in just 24 hours.

Although YouTube has not made an official statement about how many videos have been moderated, the company said they have experienced an unprecedented volume of violent content. According to The Washington Post, moderators worked through the night to remove tens of thousands of videos of the terrorist attack. In an interview with The Post, chief product officer Neal Mohan said that some uploads were altered to prevent automated tools from spotting the footage.

Reports suggest that copies of the video were being added as fast as one per second. Eventually, this drove the streaming site to disable some search options to control the problem. In addition, they also shut down some human review features to speed up the process. However, by Friday, they had no choice but to send newsworthy clips via human moderators to check for violence or disturbing imagery.

Since the shootings last week, the entire world has been united in shock and sadness. The assailant, Brenton Harrison Tarrant, appeared in court on Saturday. The Australian citizen did not make a plea, but flashed a white supremacist hand signal.
In response to the attack, US Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said:

“We, too, have seen the face of such evil with attacks in places such as Charlottesville, Pittsburgh, and Charleston. And in the wake of the New Zealand tragedy, I want to make one thing very clear: We will not permit such hate in the homeland.”

However, unlike the United States, New Zealand’s government has made decisive moves to reform gun laws in the country. In a statement, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said:

“We have listened to public sentiment following Friday’s terrorist attack in Christchurch and decided to remove all semi-automatic firearms sales and parts associated.”

Meanwhile, social media giants are facing new challenges about how to moderate violent or disturbing content. While most services agree that this was an unusual incident, the spread of the Christchurch footage has led to calls for companies to do more to protect users from hateful and violent material.

William Middleton Strikes Deal With HarperCollins for Karl Lagerfeld Book

Well, that didn’t take long.
William Middleton, a former Paris bureau chief of WWD and W magazine, just signed a book deal with HarperCollins to write “an unconventional biography” of Karl Lagerfeld and how he turned himself into a cultural icon. Lagerfeld died Feb. 19.
Middleton, who met Lagerfeld in 1995, did many stories with him when he worked in Paris and developed a friendship along the way.  Middleton is the author of “Double Vision,” about the powerful art-world family headed by Dominique and John de Menil that was published last spring.
Middleton said he had proposed a book to Lagerfeld about a year ago, and the designer was not interested in delving into his past. “I don’t think the history of Karl is the most interesting part. There are some elements of his past that are interesting. But it’s really what he turned himself into that’s so fascinating. I didn’t want to do a normal biography,” he said.
Immediately after Lagerfeld died, Middleton wrote a three-page proposal and e-mailed his agent, Binky Urban at ICM. “By 9 a.m., she had me on the phone [with HarperCollins vice president and executive editor Sara Nelson] and we had a contract the next week. It all

Bryce Harper Lands History-Making $330 Million Deal with the Philadelphia Phillies

(NEW YORK) — Bryce Harper and the Philadelphia Phillies have agreed to a $ 330 million, 13-year contract, the largest deal in baseball history, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Thursday because the agreement is subject to a successful physical.

A 26-year-old All-Star outfielder, Harper topped the $ 325 million, 13-year agreement outfielder Giancarlo Stanton reached before the 2015 season with the Miami Marlins.

Harper’s agreement, first reported by the MLB Network, tops the previous high for a free agent, set last week when infielder Manny Machado signed a $ 300 million, 10-year deal with the San Diego Padres. Harper’s average annual value of $ 25.4 million ranks 14th in baseball history, well below the high of $ 31.4 million set by Arizona pitcher Zack Greinke as part of a $ 206.5 million, six-year contract that started in 2016.

Harper gets a $ 20 million signing bonus, a $ 10 million salary this year, $ 26 million in each of the following nine seasons and $ 22 million in each of the last three years. None of the money is deferred.

Philadelphia has been among the most active teams this offseason, adding outfielder Andrew McCutchen for $ 50 million over three years and reliever David Robertson for $ 23 million over two years, and acquiring catcher J.T. Realmuto and shortstop Jean Segura.

After leading their division in early August, the Phillies went 16-33 over the final 49 games of last season and at 80-82 finished with a losing record for the sixth straight season.

San Francisco and the Los Angeles Dodgers had also pursued Harper in recent weeks.

Harper has been an All-Star in six of seven big league seasons for the Washington Nationals and was the unanimous winner of the 2015 NL MVP award.

An up-and-down defender and an unusual mix of popular and polarizing, Harper is known for the occasional contretemps with opponents, one particular exchange with a reporter about a “clown question,” and, most infamously, a dugout dustup in which he was choked by then-teammate Jonathan Papelbon during a game.

Washington took him with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 amateur draft and called him up to the majors less than two years later at age 19. He would go on to become the 2012 NL Rookie of the Year for a Nationals club that won its first division title and made its postseason debut.

Harper was also an integral part of the team that added NL East titles in 2014, 2016 and 2017 and never finished lower than second place in his seven seasons. Another key stat, though: The Nationals never won a playoff series in that span.

His best year was 2015, when at age 22 he hit .330 with 42 homers, 99 RBIs, 118 runs and 124 walks, amassing an OPS of 1.109.

Last year, he hit 34 homers and produced a career-high 100 RBIs while walking 130 times, although his batting average dipped to .249. He started more than a third of his games in center field instead of his usual spot in right, because of injuries to teammates.

With Washington’s Nationals Park hosting the 2018 All-Star Game, Harper stole the show the day before the Midsummer Classic by winning the Home Run Derby before an ecstatic crowd filled with folks wearing his No. 34 Nationals jersey. Harper wore a headband with the D.C. flag’s design, reflecting his oft-stated pride in playing for Washington.

But that eventually ran its course. The Nationals made an offer toward the end of last season — a $ 300 million, 10-year contract that was no longer on the table after free agency opened without an agreement.

A year after going 82-80 and missing the playoffs under rookie manager Dave Martinez, the Nationals will move forward without Harper.

Washington general manager Mike Rizzo would have loved to keep Harper in his team’s lineup but didn’t sit around and wait to find out whether that would happen. Instead, Rizzo spent such money elsewhere, adding lefty starter Patrick Corbin on a $ 140 million deal and righty starter Anibal Sanchez, along with second baseman Brian Dozier, a pair of catchers in Yan Gomes and Kurt Suzuki and two key bullpen pieces in Trevor Rosenthal and Kyle Barraclough.

Harsh Realms And Deal Sleds

Even worse than being out of touch is knowing people think of you as out of touch. In 1992, a reporter for the New York Times wrote a story for the Styles section on the rise of grunge culture. It’s a relatively straightforward chronology of how elements of sound and style came together to form what a Sub Pop Records catalog first referred to as “grunge,” and traces grunge’s path “from subculture to mass culture.” Most of the points the piece makes have been generally accepted as fact for years; it doesn’t seem to be riddled with errors. Although it does refer to Trent Reznor’s band as “the Nine Inch Nails” — which would make any NIN fan snicker.

But one oversight made the article a famous example of the over-eagerness of outsiders to understand a subculture’s slang. The piece was accompanied by a sidebar with the heading “Lexicon of Grunge: Breaking the Code.” According to the Baffler, the slang was made up on the spot by Sub Pop employee Megan Jasper and fed to the reporter as a prank — a Gen X middle finger to an establishment that was co-opting its teen spirit.

Cut to recently, when I stumbled on some slang previously unfamiliar to me, slang that I guess everyone knew already, making me possibly more out of touch than the NYT grunge correspondent: Some people call bit loafers–specifically Gucci loafers–“deal sleds.” The etymology and true meaning of the phrase are not totally clear. It’s largely used on social media and forums for guys who work in finance. The Urban Dictionary entry for “deal sleds” is from 2010. On a cursory search, I found blog and social media references as far back as 2011. According to Google Trends, interest was negligible until 2012 or so and spiked in 2018.

Whatever the origin, the gist is that bit loafers are what you wear when you want to close a deal,  expect to close a deal, or at least want to give the impression you expect to close a deal. The deal in question could be work-related, or, erm, personal. A quick poll of a New York office by twitter user @jammy_sod, who works in finance, was inconclusive: “The main reference is to a work deal but the junior staff, who aspire to be like the real deal-makers, wear them to show that they could do both.” Deal sleds are adjacent to the idea of the Midtown Uniform.

Whether clients or potential hookups really notice your $ 500+ shoes? For that, I have no data. I know that I like them, and we’ve recommended them (with reservations) in the past, but I am not generally in the business of closing deals, unless you mean accepting low-ball offers on Grailed.

It got me thinking about slang thrown around in menswear circles (fit, jawnz, drip — the most versed would likely be Lawrence Schlossman of menswear argot bibles like Fuck Yeah, Menswear, Four Pins, and Grailed). And bullshit slang, and, eventually, what would I feed a reporter who asked about language in menswear.

Marsai Martin Becomes The Youngest Person To Have First-Look Deal At Universal

70th Emmy Awards - Arrivals

We’ve said it before, and we’re going to say it again: Black girls really are magic.

A month after the trailer for her upcoming comedy “Little” dropped, 14-year-old Black-ish actress Marsai Martin has just signed a first-look deal with Universal Pictures.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Martin will develop scripted projects for Universal alongside Joshua Martin (co-founder), Carol Martin (vice president) and Prince Baggett (head of creative).

Even better? Marsai is making history with this move: She’s the youngest person to get a first-look deal at Universal or an major studio.

Peter Cramer, president, Universal Pictures, told THR that Marsai is definitely “a star on the rise” who is “brilliant.”

“Working with emerging talent is a cornerstone of Universal’s overall slate strategy, and Marsai is a star on the rise,” he said.

Adding, “She is not only tremendously talented in front of the camera but offers a unique perspective as a creator and producer that will resonate with all audiences. We look forward to moviegoers getting to see how brilliant she is in Little and watching her evolve as a filmmaker here at Universal.”

“I am so excited for the magic I’ll be able to create and produce with Universal,” Marsai said.

“Mr. Cramer and Ms. [Donna] Langley’s commitment to investing in and uplifting diverse and young voices is both refreshing and important, and I’m happy to be a part of that legacy. My goal is to show young women and girls that our voices and ideas matter and you are never too young to dream BIG!”

So what’s up next for her?

THR writes that Marsai will star in StepMonster, a comedy about a teenage girl (Martin) who is adjusting to life with a new stepmother and has to learn that sometimes the only way to tame a monster is to make peace with it (especially if the monster is you).

As we previously reported, Marsai became the youngest executive producer in Hollywood with her highly anticipated film “Little.”

Little, which also stars Issa Rae and Regina Hall, centers on a insufferable tech mogul, Jordan Sanders, who wakes up as the 13-year-old version of herself.

Martin plays a young Sanders while Regina Hall is perfect as the adult exec who tortures her employees, including April (Issa Rae). Jordan and April bond as the roles are reversed and April finds herself bossing around her younger, older boss.

Little, an idea from Martin who was inspired by Tom Hanks’ body-swapping classic Big, makes Martin the youngest Black executive producer in Hollywood.

Brits don’t like Theresa May’s Brexit deal. But they still admire her grit.  

There was the head-spinning, cross-party, total defeat of the prime minister’s Brexit deal. Then the inglorious rescue of her government. At the center of the chaos, May still stands. Scholars of British politics cannot quite believe it. No leader before has survived such a parliamentary drubbing, described by many as “the worst in history.” But May has. How?

Why Sunday’s AFC Championship Game Is a Bigger Deal for Patrick Mahomes Than Tom Brady

It’s been a bounce-back season for the NFL. Scoring is up, with the four most offensively potent teams in the league — the Kansas City Chiefs, the Los Angeles Rams, the New Orleans Saints and the New England Patriots — reaching the conference championship round. Pro football feels fun again. Defense wins championships? Bollocks. After a down year in 2017, TV ratings have risen.

So it’s only fitting that in a bullish year for football, fans are treated with one particularly dreamy matchup on conference championship Sunday, Jan. 20. That’ll be when the Kansas City Chiefs, led by their stunningly talented second-year quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, host the House of Brady, the New England Patriots, in the AFC title game. (The New Orleans Saints play the Los Angeles Rams in the Big Easy in Sunday’s other matchup.)

The Mahomes-Brady duel counts as nothing less than an intergenerational battle for the heart and soul of the NFL. Hyperbole? Maybe. It’s just sports, though, so let’s run with it.

As NFL playoff games go, the stakes are serious. Brady, the only quarterback who owns five Super Bowl trophies, has set new standards for football excellence. His quinoa and avocado ice cream diet, irritating though it may be, is paying off: at 41, he’s playing in a record eighth straight conference championship. On the home side of the ball, Mahomes is football’s version of Stephen Curry. Clips of his “are you friggin’ kidding me” plays — throws with his weak hand, and sidearm, and across his body and without looking and on the run — light up the internet, like Curry’s ridiculous three-pointers. This season Mahomes, 23, became just the second-ever quarterback to throw for at least 5,000 yards and throw at least 50 TD passes in the same season. Only Mahomes, Brady, and Peyton Manning have ever thrown 50 or more TD passes in a single season.

One quarterback has been the face of the game for over a decade. With a win, the other can expedite his quest to succeed him. The NFC championship game, between the Saints and Rams, similarly pits an aging inevitable Hall of Famer against a budding star. New Orleans’ Drew Brees, who just turned 40, is a Super Bowl champion who this season surpassed the elder Manning brother’s all-time record for career passing yards; Brees now has 74,437 compared to Manning’s 71,940. Goff’s a bonafide franchise QB who’s turned in some eye-popping performances, such as his 465 yard, five touchdown game against the Minnesota Vikings on a Thursday night, on three days’ rest, in September. He had a perfect passer rating that night.

Still, Brees-Goff doesn’t carry the same sizzle as Brady-Mahomes. One’s not generally considered the best of all time. The other’s not already setting all-time records.

Brady would seem to be facing more pressure on Sunday. Time’s going to run out on him at some point. This could be his last chance to win a sixth Super Bowl. Mahomes, meanwhile, is just starting out. If he misses this opportunity, he’ll surely get back, right?

Except nothing’s quite that certain, especially in the NFL. This game is more of a must-win for Mahomes. Kansas City finished the regular season with a better record than New England, owns home-field advantage, and boasts superior firepower on its roster. The oddsmakers list KC as the favorites. Brady’s legend is already secure. Mahomes, as good as he is, could catch some bad breaks going forward. Maybe injury. Maybe the team turns over. With its salary cap structure, the NFL’s economic model breeds parity. So maybe another team emerges, aside from the Chiefs, in the ensuring years. Bill Belichick has somehow hacked the NFL, and keeps constructing teams that contend for a championship. Odds are long that Kansas City does the same.

Dan Marino reached the Super Bowl when he was 23; Joe Montana’s San Francisco 49ers crushed his Miami Dolphins, and Marino never made it back. In 2012 Colin Kaepernick, at 25, shook up the NFL and reached a Super Bowl, coming a few yards short of potentially winning. (Ironically, Kaepernick displaced Alex Smith as the starter in San Francisco, as Mahomes did in Kansas City six years later.) Former ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski gushed that Kaepernick “could be one of the greatest quarterbacks ever.” But inconsistency, injuries, and controversy derailed Kaepernick. Sure, Mahomes’ 2018 season was statistically far superior to Kaepernick’s initial burst. Mahomes is a better quarterback, and seems unlikely to champion causes that turn ownership against him. But you can’t entirely dismiss Kaeperick as a cautionary tale.

Or look at Russell Wilson. In just his third season, at age 26, he was a Marshawn Lynch one-yard TD run away from joining the pantheon of great quarterbacks to win back-to-back Super Bowl titles (Brady, Joe Montana, Troy Aikman and Terry Bradshaw, to name a few). Then Seattle coach Pete Carroll called a pass play. Malcolm Butler picked off Wilson. A potential Seattle dynasty fizzled. Wilson’s far from a lock to return to an NFC championship game, lest a Super Bowl.

Football is fleeting. A Brady-Brees old guy Super Bowl carries sentimental value. But Rams-Chiefs would be utterly delightful, a rematch of one of the best regular season games ever, a wild Monday Night air show that Los Angeles won 54-51. More than any other game this season, that one marked a rejuvenated NFL. The future’s now. Mahomes and Goff just now have to grab it.

No pressure.

Correction, Jan. 18

The original version of this story misstated the conference in which Russel Wilson plays. It is the NFC, not the AFC.

4 Ways to Deal if You Want to Be Debt-Free but Your Partner Keeps Spending

When you get married or combine finances with someone, you may think that tackling debt will be easier than doing it on your own.

Then you find out your partner has no intention of paying off debt or being involved with finances.

Cool.

But if this is you, don’t worry. Just because the love of your life isn’t driven to get rid of debt right now, it doesn’t mean they never will be.

I admit that I wasn’t on board with paying off debt when my then-fiance “suggested” it to me.

I came from a background where we always had money to pay the bills but never enough for anything else. So when I was finally making my own money, I wanted to use it to live, not to pay my $ 52,000 of student loan debt.

But many people overcome their aversions to paying off debt and end up being just as motivated as their significant other.

Here are some tips for bridging that gap.

4 Strategies for When Your Partner Doesn’t Care About Being Debt-Free

These tips may not speed up the journey, but they are the best way to get to freedom from debt if you don’t want to sleep on the couch the whole way.

1. Slow Down and Rethink Your Approach

If the fact that your partner doesn’t want to think about finances frustrates you, sit down, take a deep breath and think about why.

A lot of people have negative emotions and experiences tied to money.

Talking about finances can be a trigger for someone whose parents fought about money. If someone never had enough money for small pleasures growing up, they might go into defense mode if you tell them you want to stop spending money and sell their stuff.

And the thought of debt itself can be a heavy mental burden, especially when life is throwing more problems into the mix. It takes time, persistence and understanding to find out what the root of your partner’s hesitation is and how to work through it.

2. Talk About the Future

Couple holding hands

My husband knows that I’m a goal-driven person, so he asked me what my goals for the future were. He got me thinking about how freedom from debt could help me achieve my goals faster.

Make sure your partner’s goals and wants are heard. Share your own wants, and talk about how your goals and your partner’s goals can work together. Your partner may not have concrete goals right now, but they surely have something they want. Maybe they want to travel, buy a boat, stay at home with kids or pursue a passion.

Anything they want to do in the future is going to have a financial component. And once you’ve identified it, you’ll be able to sit down and talk about that. But as with the first recommendation, take it slowly.

3. Plan a Road Trip

If your partner will no longer listen to you about finances, don’t force it.

They still need to hear it, just not from you. That’s where podcasts and audiobooks can come in for the assist. And there’s no better way to have your partner’s uninterrupted ear than playing them in the car.

That’s how Budgets Made Easy creator Ashley Patrick was able to get her husband on board.

“I attempted budget meetings, but he wasn’t interested,” Ashley said. “He was content letting me handle it all. The biggest thing that fully got him on board was playing Dave Ramsey podcasts in the car. Especially when I did it on a long road trip. Hours of Dave Ramsey helped change his mindset.”

She and her husband paid off $ 45,000 in 17 months, and Ashley now provides financial coaching through Dave Ramsey’s Ramsey Solutions.

4. Be an Example They’ll Want to Follow

While you’re waiting for your partner to join the team, make sure they know what the game looks like.

You can continue to budget, pay off debt and be wise with your spending even if your partner isn’t. Sometimes they just need to see that it can be done.

As you do this, take into consideration what they value and want. Maybe you think Topgolf is a waste of money, but your husband loves going once a month. Put it in the budget to show him that the process is only as restrictive as you make it.

At the end of the day, being debt-free isn’t the goal: having financial freedom is. And if you want your partner to be part of that, it might take some patience and perseverance. But it’s worth it — not just financially — to get on the same page and head in the same direction with your goals.

Daniel Murphy agrees to two-year, $24 million deal with Colorado Rockies

Veteran infielder Daniel Murphy has agreed in principle to a deal with the Colorado Rockies, according to multiple reports. The deal is for two years and $ 24 million, as first reported by Yahoo Sports. Murphy has spent the bulk of his career at second base, where the Rockies are looking to replace fellow free agent DJ LeMahieu. But Murphy is expected to play mostly at first base for Colorado. After two outstanding seasons with the Nationals, Murphy, who turns 34 in April, was traded to the playoff-contending Chicago Cubs three weeks after last season’s non-waiver deadline for Class A infielder Andruw Monasterio and a player to be named or cash. A three-time All-Star who finished second in 2016 National League MVP voting, Murphy missed the first 64 games of last season while recovering from microfracture surgery on his right knee in October 2017.

Trump’s Art of the Russia Deal: Give Vladimir Putin a Penthouse

Ever Wonder if Groupon Getaways Are a Good Deal? We Have Answers

Don’t look.

BUT OH MY GOD, LOOK.

Look at all the places you could go  — and how little it costs to get there.

From the base of Mount Everest or the Eiffel Tower to the stretches of the Great Wall of China, Machu Picchu and the Egyptian pyramids — the world is the budget traveler’s oyster when it comes to Groupon Getaways.

What are Groupon Getaways and How do They Work?

Groupon, the popular deal website known for coupons on goods and services, also offers budget travel packages called Groupon Getaways.

The company offers three types of travel experiences: domestic hotels, air-inclusive international packages and cruises, according to Nicholas Halliwell, a Groupon spokesperson.

“We typically feature 3 ½- to four-star properties in major destinations but also have an assortment of local hotels to provide members easy access to local getaways,” he said.

As for the international deals, Halliwell said, Groupon works with a handful of tour operators who specialize in assembling air-inclusive packages.

“We chose tour operator partners based on their ability to provide packages that are affordable without sacrificing experience,” he said.

Currently, Groupon offers a small number of cruise promotions.

When you’re ready to book, Groupon Getaways work the same way as the other Groupons.

For domestic hotels, there’s no need to contact the hotel after booking. Show up on your date of arrival as you would if you used Expedia.

For all-inclusive trips, Groupon plays middleman and hands things over to a travel agent or online tour operator who books the trip from start to finish. All you have to do is contact the provider and redeem your voucher within the booking window.

What are the Benefits of Groupon Getaways?

Price

This is basically why you’re reading this: Groupon Getaways are super cheap.

Within the U.S., there are thousands of deals on hotel rooms, which Halliwell said are the most popular getaway. But the really deep discounts shine on international travel packages.

One lump sum gets you airfare, hotel, transportation, tours and several — if not all — meals included.

Attempting to price and book a similar trip piecemeal will have you back on Groupon’s website in minutes wondering how they do it.

Robert Todd and his wife, who live in St. Petersburg, Florida, used Groupon Getaways for trips to Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Central Italy.

Their $ 799 per person, seven-day trip to Buenos Aires out of Miami International Airport included airfare, hotel and meals.

“The best part is the price,” he said.

Even with a five-hour drive to Miami and airport parking, Todd felt like he still got a great deal.

“Look for flights out of Miami to Buenos Aires — it’s like $ 700 per person — and then add in five days of breakfast and a nice hotel in a very fancy neighborhood,” he said.

Todd and his wife have another getaway scheduled to Scotland in November.

“I wish I could do more of them because they’re right in my price range,” he said.

Convenience

Inclusive getaways are a one-stop shop.

After you redeem your voucher and provide your personal information, the agency books your tickets, hotels, tours, meals and transportation for you. All you have to do is show up on time.

We’ve found that our customers are much more willing to travel abroad if all of the different components of the trip — plane tickets, hotel reservations, transfers, tours — are all bundled in a single package,” Halliwell said.

That kind of stress-free travel can be priceless.

For a big, complicated trip with lots of stops, flights, shuttles and changes, having the support of a travel agency or an online tour operator can help alleviate many of the stresses associated with travel, leaving more time for you to pack and relax,” Halliwell said.

Once Todd forgot to call Gate 1 Travel, a tour operator Groupon partners with, to redeem his travel voucher in the specified 14-day booking window.

“We missed the fine print, and about 30 days later we called up and worked with them to set it up. They took care of it. It could have been a big issue, but they made it no big deal,” he said.

Variety

There’s a vacation package on every continent except Antarctica.

You can take a $ 200 Bahamas cruise for two days or a 17-day trek to the base camp at Mount Everest.

“They have a lot of selections, and you can pretty much go anywhere you’d ever want to go,” Todd said.

Looking for something family-friendly or a romantic getaway? Groupon’s got you. They have a variety of travel categories to peruse.

“I almost look at Groupon Getaways as a mini vacation while I’m sitting at work and I need a break,” Todd said. “They give you a lot of really cool ideas.”

Groupon Getaway Limitations

Schenck is hoping to plan another Groupon travel trip next year. Aileen Perilla/The Penny Hoarder

Deep discounts mean less flexibility and some caveats. You will have to make compromises for that cheap price tag.

Airports

There are limitations on which airports you can depart from, which means extra costs of routing yourself to the designated airports if you don’t live near one of them.

Michelle Schenck, who lives in Tampa, Florida, had that problem when she booked a Groupon Getaway to Iceland that departed out of New York City. She called Groupon directly and booked the extra flight with the company.

“It was cheaper to add Tampa to the trip than to book it independently,” she said. “I paid roughly $ 60 round trip to go from Tampa to New York City, so it was an all-around steal.”

Flight and Travel Times

Travelers do not get to choose airlines or flight times. You can expect early-morning and overnight flights and long layovers.

Todd said his upcoming flight to Scotland has a 7 a.m. departure with an eight-hour layover in Madrid on the way back.

“They put together some pretty wacky connecting flights,” he said. “ It’s almost expected given the price.”

Keep in mind that an advertised eight-day vacation is really more of a seven- or six-day trip when factoring in travel times. Check how many hotel nights are included to know exactly how many days you’ll really be staying.

Dates

Most trips have very specific departure dates and very little wiggle room.

While it doesn’t lend much flexibility, you select the available dates before checkout, so there are no surprises on your end.

You can book last-minute trips or choose one months out.

Other dates may be available but not listed. Contact the partnering tour operator to see what your options are.

Non-Refundable or Cancellation Fees

This is the risky part.

Once you book your trip, many portions of it are nonrefundable — especially the airfare.

The terms and conditions for each getaway vary, so you will have to read the fine print to know your rights before you buy and book.

Some charge a $ 250 cancellation fee, while others bill you for a percentage of the voucher if you cancel.

Halliwell advises travelers to read the fine print and cancellation policy of the hotel, cruise and tour operators before booking; Groupon’s policy is to follow the policy of its partners.

Our policy is aligned with the hotel, cruise or tour operator’s cancellation policy, which is the case with most online travel agencies, including Expedia and Priceline,” he said.

There are some exceptions for circumstances like natural disasters, but outside of that if you have a  bad experience, Halliwell said to contact the property and Groupon to work toward a satisfactory solution.

Rental Cars

Multi-city adventures call for rental cars. The cost of the rental is included in the getaway package.

The catch, as Todd learned firsthand, is you’re given cheap models with manual transmissions.

So, if you can’t drive a stick shift, then you’re forced to upgrade out of your own pocket.

He said that was his least favorite part of the rental experience.

“They give you a junker — the cheapest model they can possibly give you so… you always have to upgrade,” he said.

Location

For a one-city trip, you’ll most likely be set up in a hotel close to the action.

If you book a multi-city trip with a car rental, your hotel serves as a central hub to and from all the cities on your trip.

Todd found driving back and forth problematic on his Italy trip. He said driving 30 to 40 minutes was a light day, whereas others were five hours round trip.

To avoid spending hours in the car, he and his wife opted to spend an extra $ 69 on a hotel room in Florence instead of driving back to their home base the same day. That gave them a chance to experience Florence at night and plenty of time to drive back the next day.

He advised leaving some padding in your budget to book a cheap hotel along the way or risk spending your whole trip on the road.

Double Occupancy

All of the inclusive international package rates are for two people. This is plainly stated under the headline of the deal.

This means you’re expected to share a room with your travel partner.

Flying solo? That costs extra. Single-traveler fees range from $ 100 to $ 700, which forces singles to pay the same price as two people in some instances.

It might be cheaper to book elsewhere if you’re going stag.

Tips Before Purchasing a Groupon Getaway

Schenck took her mom, Eleanore, on an all-inclusive trip to Italy in 2016 using Groupon. Aileen Perilla/The Penny Hoarder

As if the price wasn’t discounted enough already, both Schenck and Todd said they used a Groupon Getaway promo code to take an extra 10% off the price, up to $ 50 per person.

“It made the already cheap price even cheaper,” Schenck said.

Todd’s advice is to wait until the getaway is about to expire; he said the price gets cut anywhere from $ 50 to $ 100.

With both of those tactics combined, he said, you can save up to $ 100 off the face value per person.

But before you get excited and book your next dream vacation, read the fine print.

“I read it beforehand, so I knew exactly what to expect,” Schenck said.

Basically, as long as you read the fine print, there will be no surprises.

Taxes and fees are summarized in the “Know Before You Go” section on the main page of the getaway.  Read the “Fine Print & Details” tab for specifics of the tour operator’s policy.

Never hesitate to contact the travel or tour company to ask questions prior to booking.

The numbers to the sponsoring agencies are provided right on the getaway page. They can clarify any uncertainties and quote you trip extensions or extra flight costs.

Don’t be afraid to shop around.

As with any purchase, it’s really important to do your research,” Halliwell said.

“Travel is an industry where pricing can vary widely, so it’s important to look at other sites out there and do an apples-to-apples comparison.”

Another biggie is to read the reviews and check the customer ratings of any hotels, cruises or tour packages that you’re thinking of booking.

Caribbean excursions rank low, while getaways to Morocco, Paris and Rome have a five-star rating.  

Ultimately, don’t let the restrictions scare you off.

Pay the price and let the tour company choose hotels, flights and cars. You have the fun.  

Yes, you’re at the booking mercy of the travel agency, but chances are you’ll see more of the world for less money.

Both Todd and Schenck knew the deal up front and haven’t encountered any kinks yet.

“I think the pros definitely outweigh the cons,” Todd said.

Starz Signs 50 Cent To Multiyear Project Deal

Power, Season 5, Episode 505

Source: Starz / Starz

Even after all the drama and public bickering between 50 Cent and Starz, it seems like business will always outweigh personal conflicts.

Yesterday Starz announced that they had signed Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson to a new multi-year deal that will allow Fif to continue to will continue to develop new scripted and unscripted projects exclusively for the network through his G-Unit Film & Television, Inc. Not bad for someone who constantly takes his employers to task on social media.

But regardless of how crazy things got in the past, the cable network couldn’t deny the results that 50 got them and rewarded him with a extension. Both 50 and Starz CEO/President Chris Albrecht knew that at the end of the day they needed each other.

“When I sat down with Chris and walked him through my plans for G-Unit Film & Television going forward, he let me know I was essentially requesting the biggest deal in premium cable history.  I am excited to announce that we’ve made that partnership between myself, G-Unit Film & Television and Starz/Lionsgate and we will continue our proven track record of breaking records and delivering unique content for audiences around the world…..Get The Strap,” said Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.

Starz CEO & President Chris Albrecht added, “Both on screen and off, Curtis has proven that he can deliver content that our viewers want to watch. He is the real deal, and we have given him a real deal, with what I believe to be among the most significant deals to date for an Executive Producer in premium television. We’re pleased to expand our relationship and consider this the beginning of many new and exciting ventures to come.”

Now that 50’s officially done acting on Power thanks to the death of his character, Kenan, he’ll have more time on his hands to come up with other crime drama series and possibly act in them as well. But that doesn’t mean he’s completely done with the smash Starz series as the new deal guarantees that he’ll still have a hand in executive producing the series and will make his directorial debut in season six. It also guarantees that the G-Unit general will serve as an executive producer on any future seasons of the series as well as any extensions of the “Power” universe on the big or small screen.

While many questioned 50’s antics and actions over the years when dealing with Starz with many fearing he’d get fired from the network, the end result seems to demonstrate that he actually knew what he was doing. Go figure.
