    2h By Mike Winters on Two Cents, shared by Mike Winters to Lifehacker
    After a year of travel restrictions, nearly a third of all credit card holders have not redeemed their credit card rewards. But will these rewards expire before you’re ready to use them? Fortunately, most cards don’t have a hard cutoff date, although that…

  • When to See February's 'Snow Moon'

    2:00pm By Sam Blum
    Winter in the U.S. has been brutal in 2021, as snow blanketed the entire eastern seaboard and icy conditions spread as far south as Texas, causing the electrical grid to go offline. A reprieve from the frigid hell should be welcome, and it’s coming in the…
  • This PlayStation Remote Play App is Better Than Sony's

    1:30pm By Brendan Hesse
    One of my favorite innovations of modern gaming is the ability to stream what you’re playing to your smartphone, whether from the cloud, your home consoles, or a PC. Streaming transforms your phone into a Nintendo Switch-like portable that can play games…

    1:00pm By Claire Lower on Skillet, shared by Claire Lower to Lifehacker
    Unlike soups, stews, braises, and chilis, mashed potatoes do not taste better after an overnight rest in the fridge. Cold potatoes are stiff and dry—mere shadows of their former selves. But nuking them in the microwave or stirring them ferociously over a hot…

  • Make a DIY Vinegar Cleaning Spray With Orange Peels

    12:00pm By Thorin Klosowski
    Using vinegar is a DIY-er’s best friend when it comes to home cleaning, but the smell can be a pungent one. Granted, part of the benefit of using vinegar as a cleaning solution is that it’s a great deodorizer, too—your room will smell strongly like…
  • What's New on Netflix in March 2021

    11:30am By Joel Cunningham
    In the absence of broadly appealing new films and TV series (no Oscar hopefuls this month, I’m afraid), Netflix appears to be looking to the podcast market to figure out how to keep its massive subscriber base happy. Its new offerings in March include a host…

  • What Is the Best Parenting Advice You Ever Received?

    9:30am By Meghan Moravcik Walbert on Offspring, shared by Meghan Moravcik Walbert to Lifehacker
    A lot of parenting advice is bad advice. It’s not just that standards and societal norms change over time, it’s also that when something works for one parent and one child, that one parent tends to see their method as the “right” way or the best…

  • Rest Your Stews, Soups, and Chili Overnight

    9:00am By Claire Lower on Skillet, shared by Claire Lower to Lifehacker
    I will not eat chili the same day it is cooked. It’s not fair to the recipe, and it’s not fair to me. The same goes for stews, most braises, and (ideally) any meat-based pasta sauce. I don’t just let these things “rest” for a mere half hour nap; I…
