I have over two dozen credit cards, though I hold onto these cards for a variety of reasons. I have some of these cards because they help me maximize my everyday spending, while I have other cards because of the ongoing perks that they offer.
One Mile at a Time
Every month I make a post with what I consider to be the best credit card offers at the time, with a particular focus on the best travel credit cards.
A couple of weeks ago I wrote about a management change happening for Virgin Atlantic Clubhouses outside of the UK. These have historically been some of the best business class lounges out there. There’s now an interesting update, which has some practical implications.
American AAdvantage constantly has promotions on purchased miles. With it now being a new month, the program has launched its latest offer.
In the United States, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) catches thousands of people per year trying to board planes with guns (which is terrifying when you consider how many are probably slipping through, given the TSA’s record on catching weapons). Well, here’s a rather high profile case of someone trying to board a flight with a gun.
Amex’s ”Pay Over Time” feature is something that I recommend not using, but which could still be worth signing up for. Let me explain.
For the average American, the single best way to maximize travel rewards is to make sure you’re applying for the best credit cards, and using the right credit cards for your daily spending.
A new airline is planning on launching transpacific flights to the United States in 2022.
I love old aviation ads, as it’s always fun to see how the airline industry has changed. Well, if you’re looking for an old aviation-related ad this Saturday morning, look no further. A friend sent me a link to a promotional video put out by London City Airport in the early 1990s (Londonist wrote about this five years ago). It’s kind of hilarious, kind of interesting, and oh-so-90s.
The Conrad Bora Bora is one of my favorite Hilton properties in the world (read my review of the Conrad Bora Bora). The catch is that for the past couple of years, saver level free night availability at this hotel has been very hard to come by. When there has been availability, it has often only been for a week or so over the course of the entire year.
During the pandemic we saw most airlines cut inflight service to minimize contact between passengers and crew (for example, here’s my review of an April 2021 Alaska Airlines first class flight).
Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards has just rolled out its latest promotion on purchased points. The concept of a revenue based frequent flyer program selling points has always been strange to me, so let’s take a look at the details (but I’ll say up front that this is an offer you probably shouldn’t take advantage of).
Once in a while we see hotel loyalty programs offer bonuses to new members. At the moment Marriott Bonvoy, which is the world’s largest hotel loyalty program, has such an offer.
The Platinum Card from American Express (review) and The Business Platinum Card from American Express (review) are among the most popular premium cards out there. The personal version of the card recently underwent a major refresh, and on top of that both cards are offering excellent bonuses for new cardmembers right now.
Alaska Airlines joined the alliance as of March 2021, which was an exciting development. Even though the airline is now part of the alliance, award redemptions on all oneworld partners haven’t yet been finalized for the Mileage Plan program. Per View from the Wing, we now have an update on the timeline with which this will happen, and what future award charts could look like.
For those in the United States with good credit, the best way to rack up points is through credit cards. This can include the welcome bonuses offered by cards, the points offered for spending on cards, and all kinds of other offers.
This story about what happened at a hotel in Mexico is downright awful, though I suppose it could have ended worse.
Lufthansa economy class passengers on select routes will soon potentially have access to flat beds.
As of today you can redeem Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan miles for travel on Qatar Airways. There are several interesting things to note about this new opportunity, so let’s take a look at the details.
It looks like American Airlines has had a change of heart when it comes to catering, unsurprisingly.
