Here’s what I’m reading about in the world of miles and points:
Cheap Flights of the Day:
In Case You Missed It:
Is the British Airways AARP discount going away? They changed the expiration date for new bookings, but only by a bit. Odd.
The Chase refer-a-friend site is back, which means you can earn miles for referring friend and family. Most of my regular readers know I don’t have credit card referral links on this site. However, I do love Chase Ultimate Rewards points. If anyone needs a referral, I wouldn’t turn down 5,000 UR points. 😉
Interesting. Hilton is offering a “rollover night” promotion for Diamond members who have already qualified for 2017. This makes a lot of sense to me. I find myself less “loyal” in the last months of the year because I’ve usually re-qualified for status by that point. I don’t go out of my way to secure other status. But if I have a choice between a marginal property where I have elite status or a better property where I don’t, the better hotel is going to get a longer look late in the year.
Yes, now that you mention it, loyalty is a two-way street. A lot of travel companies have forgotten that. Definitely worth a read.
American Airlines is formalizing changes for companions of elite members getting upgraded. This isn’t a huge departure from how I’ve seen things work in practice, though results varied widely in the past for different folks.
At the same time, there are rumors that upgrades are going to get more scarce on AA. Given all the negative changes there lately, this one isn’t hard to believe.
