This MileCards site continues to amaze me with its excellent content. “Deep award space: United Business Class to Europe For 9+ People Per Flight For Summer 2016“. Which means you can be commercial and not be a hideous pumping machine like so many other blogs in this space! Some just copy these posts and post a tiny HT in the very end when we all know the attention of readers’ is like a hamster and never get to read to the end. Suggestion: please don’t copy the pics as well, come on!
Ok, I lost the bet again because I didn’t know this either! 3 Methods to Transfer Avios Between Iberia and British Airways.
Looks like Kimpton’s Karma loyalty program will survive in 2016 because IHG Rewards is just way too slow to get their act together, especially its IT department hehe. So, look for no more Karma starting in 2017 #sosad. Actually, I could care less!
Mrs. TBB already got one already, heads up! Marriott Rewards expiration date emails are out! Watch what activity qualifies, these guys are sneaky!
Latest update on the Diamond Status matches by Hyatt and Hilton HHonors. If you thought Hyatt’s handling of this was pathetic, these guys are not done yet! They are now, it appears, only matching SPG Platinums showing 20 nights or more…Or making it up as they go along. Over at the Hilton camp, they just awarded #156,789 Diamond status, good luck with them upgrades boys and girls and prepare for a mega dilution of the benefits. I smell a killing of the Silver status and then an introduction of a mega status level; in other words, all new Diamonds…welcome to Gold 🙂
PSA on using Discover Apple Pay on Best Buy! I did not have a good experience with Discover Bank and I am back at Capital One 360 which still remains flawless and it’s just fine it pays a little less interest. I don’t like Discover’s recent crap about the gift cards either. Maybe it is time to eliminate yet another institution. I am in the process of simplifying my life, getting rid of many boxes to Salvation Army and killing institutions (bye bye Discover Bank and Bankdirect) and out to kill some more. I guess no more SPG and Fairmont Presidents Club soon too and I am so sad about them too!

Our addiction to technology is real…
The jobs and workers of tomorrow. This is really good stuff!
And I leave you with this…
Big project coming up in my real work life. Email hosting provider is making us move to Microsoft Exchange or something like that. No way! So I am moving to Google Apps. Wish me luck!
I burned 3k SPG points for a night at a hotel next to the Detroit airport to catch a 6 am flight and park the car until pickup when I get back. Just 3k SPG points, a rounding error really! Burn, burn, burn!
