Cheap Flights To Fort Lauderdale, BIG Chase Sapphire Bonus And Are SPG Hot Escapes Gone?

The Best of the Rest is my effort to summarize all the travel/miles & points stories that interested me on a daily basis but didn’t have time to write about  in length.  Culled from over 100 blogs/authors I follow, some are passed along without comment, while I add my analysis to others.   This is your shortcut to find out what’s going on in the travel world without having to read dozens of travel blogs to get all the best info.

Here’s what I’m reading about today:

Cheap Flights of The Day: Escape Denver to warmer Fort Lauderdale for $126 round-trip.  And, there’s a good $39 JetBlue fare sale.

Are SPG Hot Escapes gone for good?  I’ve shared a number of SPG Hot Escapes with readers here and I know plenty have found really good deals through the weekly Hot Escapes deals.  Let’s all hope for some sort of reincarnation of this product.
