New Amex Offers! Save Up To $150 On Marriott Stays

One of the things I consistently preach is that a credit card needs to consistently justify its place in your wallet.  There are some pretty solid credit cards out with no annual fee (Bilt Rewards Mastercard) or very low annual fees (Chase Sapphire Preferred).  As well, there are cards with higher annual fees that make it very easy to cover the cost of the annual fee.  Capital One Venture X is a card that’s quickly earned a primary spot in my wallet.  While the card carries a $395 annual fee […]

Wide Open Business Class Awards From Tahiti To The US

Earlier today I noticed View From The Wing reported on a ton of availability between Tahiti and Los Angeles (the route is PPT-LAX).  Tahiti is a destination that has eluded me over the years.  I almost ended up with a stopover there right before the pandemic started closing countries.  Now, you can book business class award for the whole family on many days at a reasonable rate.  There are two options: 64,000 Air France/KLM Flying Blue miles plus $292.36 per passenger.  The Flying Blue has lots of transfer partners, including […]

TODAY ONLY: Book 8,000 Mile Round-Trip Award Flights On United Airlines Through End Of Summer 2021

If you’re still dreaming about where to travel this summer, you should definitely pay attention to the award sale United Airlines is having today.  There are some prices on award tickets here that I don’t ever recall seeing.  I did a bunch of searches for a recent story I published on The Points Guy and I wanted to make sure to share some of that data here as well.  A few notes before we dig into city pairs: You have to book round-trip flights. You need to include a Saturday […]

HURRY: As Low As $245 ROUND-TRIP Business Class To Europe Through This Summer

I’ll keep this short so you can have as much time to book as possible, and I’ll update the post with some more details shortly.  There are business class fares from several US cities to several European cities for as low as ~$250 round-trip.  Miles Talk and View From The Wing have some examples. Remember that you have 24 hours to cancel any flight you book that departs or arrives in the US with no penalty. While this fare is bookable with a few OTAs, my recommendation is to search […]

DEAL! Business Class To Brazil From $475 Roundtrip!

It’s been a while now since I covered a deal fare.  That’s due to the pandemic.  Even when some folks started traveling, I just didn’t have the wanderlust back yet.  While I’m still getting my groove back our family has started thinking about travel again in a meaningful way.  So, when I woke up this morning to a travel deal, it actually felt right to write about it.  I was excited, energized in a way I haven’t been for a while.  But, enough about me, let’s talk about the deal!

DEAL: Save On Alaska Airlines Gift Cards From Costco

Discounted gift cards represent one of the best ways to take advantage of travel deals during the pandemic.  With flexible change policies on virtually every airline, a gift card gives you even more ability to get the best deal. Thanks to Denny for sending along this deal which should be appealing to folks who live out west and can enjoy the strength of Alaska Airlines’ network. Costco is selling $500 Alaska Airlines gift cards for $449.99.  I guess that’s a $50.01 discount, but hopefully you’ll forgive me for the slight […]

DEAL: Costco Travel Is Having A Pretty Solid Travel Sale-Including A Big Discount For Hawaii

I’m a pretty big Costco fan, but I’ve only used their travel division to book a few cruises over the years.  Still, I’ve heard good things about the deals.  An e-mail popped up this morning about some travel deals Costco had.  I’ve got a million things going on but I was in the mood for a bit of research, so I took a few minutes out of my morning to dig into one of these deals.  Since I’ve still never been to Hawaii and I love a good Ritz-Carlton, I […]
