A recent small issue with Chase reminded me of a core strategy for collecting miles and points.
JetBlue is offering bonus points and more on their new route between New York’s Laguardia Airport and Boston Logan. That makes for an interesting little bonus on a route with lots of options.
Marriott and Starwood continue to make much faster progress with integration after the announcement of the merger than I expected. After quickly moving to status match and give members the ability to transfer points, Marriott and SPG have another announcement that members are really going to enjoy.
Double points on all flights takes the complication out of bonuses. Just check to see if you’re eligible for this promo. I haven’t seen Southwest run too many promotions of this nature. Hoping it becomes more of a standard thing as they ratchet up competition with Alaska/Virgin America.
Take a moment to register for the new SPG promo. Double and triple Starpoints are worth your while for the 30 seconds it’ll take to register. There is a list of participating properties, but it appears it’s a pretty healthy list. Chances are if you’ve got a SPG hotel stay coming up you’ll be able to earn some extra Starpoints.
