Tuesday Triple

  • Thanks to fancy pants reader Rob who earned a bunch of American miles from this Neiman Marcus promo.
  • Pretty decent batch of choices from IHG this time. As always, their PointBreaks options are 5,000 points per night. Still one of the best values in the hotel game (if you find somewhere you want to stay on the list).
  • Thanks to non-fancy pants Alex for sharing this link to the American Express Ameriprise Gold card. The bonus is 25,000 points and the fee is waived for the first year.

2 Weekend Tips

A couple of good email tips from over the weekend that I wanted to share…

Chris with a reminder of how helpful Twitter can be – “Southwest debacle. My flight was one of the many cancelled today.  I had much better luck getting through to Southwest on Twitter DM than the phone, although I eventually got a nice lady on the phone after 50 minutes of hold time.  Unfortunately I did have to call to make changes due to a companion pass reservation attached to my booking, I wished I could have done the changes through the app.  This may help anyone affected.”

Steve with some data on the new world of Chase card applications – “I wasn’t sure if you were aware of this or not, but just in case, some people are keeping tabs on which Chase cards don’t seem to be included in 5/24 yet – Reddit, Google sheet results, and submission.

Expedia Hotel Discounts

It was nice getting this reminder of an Expedia deal I’d forgotten about. $25 off a $100 stay and you can apparently get 3 (or more) of these.

2 Hotel Promotions

Here’s some good incentive to book a Points + Cash stay with IHG. And this is another creative promo from Rocketmiles. Their Alaska offer is probably the best they have going right now. Maybe one day I’ll book one of these. Maybe…
