Here’s what I’m reading about in the world of miles and points:
Cheap Flights of the Day:
Yes, I know it’s Frontier, and they can be stingy with fees. But, their current sale is valid for departures from Monday to Saturday, has one-way fares in the US as low as $39 to a lot of destinations (with an extra 30% off when you use promo code SAVE30), and a 20% discount on flights to Mexico.
And, WOW Air is at it again with ultra-low fares to Europe. Just be careful of the fees.
In Case You Missed It:
The new Ritz-Carlton Visa offer is worth considering for many folks. There’s no personal upside for me if you apply, it’s just a really good offer.
Get an INSTANT $15 off $300 in Visa gift cards. If bought in larger denominations, you’ll pay less than $300 for the gift cards and have the opportunity to earn miles (Chase Ink users rejoice 5X points on office supplies).
Royal Caribbean made a painful announcement for loyalty members recently, announcing they would eliminate the popular balcony discount many of their elite members are eligible for. After a huge uproar, they seem to have backed down for now. We enjoy cruising, even though we haven’t gone on one in quite some time. Elite status with the cruise lines is generally considered “lifetime” status, once you achieve a level it doesn’t expire. The benefits can be very rewarding for frequent cruisers.
I’ve got a quick stop in Denver this week. Where are you traveling to next?
