I’ve never been to Hawaii. Go ahead, ridicule me, tell me I’m nuts. But, a 10-hour flight from the East Coast in coach isn’t my idea of a great time. Lie-flat first class seats to Hawaii are tough to find for a family of 4. If Hawaii is on your list of places to go, the new Hawaiian Airlines Mastercard might be worth considering.
Remember the olden days of the US Airways Grand Slam promotion? This won’t get you back to those heights, but you might score a few free miles. If you’re trying to earn bonus miles for family travel, it’s worth taking a peek to see if you can add a few miles here and there.
United and Hertz are putting a dent in my favorite car rental promotion. If you’ve been taking advantage of their offer to earn up to 2,750 miles per car rental, this one is going to disappoint you a bit.
Hyatt is offering points and miles on all Hyatt Place and Hyatt House stays through the end of June, 2018. As Hilton does away with the Double Dip, Hyatt temporarily creates their own version with two promos!
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.
