Diversify Your Points And Your Planning For A Winning Vacation Strategy

Diversification is important for many facets of our lives. In travel, having different types of miles and points available is key. WIth the increased availability of one-way award flights over the last five years, mixing and matching is the best way to make your dream trip happen. Here’s a quick look at some examples of a diversified vacation.

Finally A Dining Promo Worth Considering

I’m running behind on reporting this but American Airlines has announced a promo worth considering for their dining reward program.
