Hi guys, I decided last minute (and completely out of my budget), to take a trip to NYC since my friend just told me that she decided to cancel her New Years Eve party (bummer). So, free roundtrip.. flying CLT-EWR (UA) and JFK-CLT (US).. free one night stay.. paid one night stay (yep, new years eve rates are kinda crazy in NYC and I am not sure if I would like to spend 70k HHonors points on a single night). I will stay at the DoubleTree by Hilton at Financial District (8 Stone Street). My question is, since even using miles and everything I am already way beyond my budget this year, what would be the cheapest and more feasible way to make EWR-DoubleTree and DoubleTree-JFK? Also, planning to take wife and baby to Time Square at midnight.. tips? I been to NYC several times but never in a short budget and during holidays.. (Except Hurricane Sandy, when I proposed my wife there). Anyway, any lead/tip would help! Thanks for reading!
