One Mile At A Time covers the exciting addition of Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer program as a transfer partner for the Chase Ultimate Rewards cards. I’m a bit behind reporting on this but it’s worth noting in case you haven’t heard the news yet. I already regard Chase Ultimate Rewards as the most valuable points you can collect because of their flexibility. They already tout United Airlines, British Airways, Southwest, Korean Air, Virgin Atlantic, Hyatt and Marriott as partners. Singapore is a great partner to add to this network, especially given that United has made it so much more expensive to redeem for partner awards.
I meet plenty of folks who are big fans of the mileage game, using the tips and tricks that myself and others share to travel to places they could never afford on their own. Lots of them are married to people that don’t really get what they do. Here’s a fun thread on Milepoint of people sharing when their spouses finally caught the bug for this crazy game we play.
Mommy Points notes an update on how to apply for your Hyatt Best Rate Guarantee. It’s an online process now which has both goods and bads.
Wandering Aramean has been adding to his inaugural flight list by hopping on a few Frontier flights for their new service to places like Wilmington and Trenton. I don’t think I would have sat in a middle seat to earn an airplane-shaped hot pretzel, but it sounds like he had fun. The takeaway here is that while Frontier offers a spartan product they have some great rates on all the new routes they’ve added. I’m hoping that will drive down fares for the legacy carriers here and there. If you’re looking to save money on your next trip make sure to take a quick look at Frontier.
Any fun travel plans for the long weekend?
