You are likely interested to get there with miles, if you haven’t already done so. How to fly to Tahiti and Bora Bora with miles.
Amex has reverted back to awarding 1:1 Membership Rewards points to transfers to British Airways and Iberia Avios. Is this what a “win” has now come down to in our hobby, sad!
In addition, the US Bank Flexperks has now confirmed its latest devaluation, Flex Points now worth 1.5 cents, down from 2 cents, ouch! I am pulling out my Amex Business Plus card more and more lately…2 points per dollar, no annual fee!
United, after recent unfortunate PR disasters, is trying to change things. Including how it prevents overbooking debacles. One way it is trying to go about it is getting to you days in advance to change your flight (for compensation). Interesting…
Marriott, the Delta of hotels, started this 48 to 72 hour cancellation policy trend. Now Hilton has decided to follow it, sad!
If you rent cars abroad, this is good advice: How I Saved $500 On The Same Rental Car From The Same Company. I use and highly recommend ExpressVPN (AFFILIATE LINK).
Are you over age 62? Do you want to save $70? Did you know you can still pay $10 to access over 2,000 US National Parks and sites for the rest of your life? Come August 28, the fee will be raised to $80. You are welcome.
Which country is the Number One in selfie deaths? India. By far!
For some reason, my blog has become the go to blog for all things about sex robots 🙂 I present to you the latest research on it, so many questions this rapidly developing industry is raising. I wonder if one day you can buy a sex robot with a Chase card and earn 5x points with it. I am sure The Points Guy will let us know lol.
