The newest Miles To Go episode is hitting it hard on hotels! We start out the episode with Jen from Deals We Like. Instead of an “It’s a Big Deal” segment, she’s with us longer, enough time to cover 4 current hotel promos: Hilton Honors IHG Rewards Marriott Rewards World of Hyatt Then, I caught up with Tiffany Funk of One Mile at a Time. She and I took a run through a number of hotel credit cards. We tackled cards that earn you the most points, cards that earn […]
This week’s episode of the NowBoarding podcast features Tiffany Funk from One Mile At a Time. Tiffany has an awesome story, including elite status in elementary school and why she wanted to be an aircraft controller. You won’t want to miss this!
It was a crazy week of travel for me, so I got fairly far behind on my blog reading. Here’s a few of the key posts I missed from around the world of travel this week. Google Flights is answering any and all questions. I’ll be interested to see how deep they go, and I applaud them for doing it. I was nervous when they took over ITA Matrix a few years ago, my favorite travel tool. Results-oriented, I was right, but I wish I was wrong. There have been lots of […]
ETA: Winner selected in the comments! Thanks for everyone who participated. Apparently, giving away tickets to the advanced session of Frequent Traveler University is a popular thing this week. I’ve had another friend ask me to give their ticket away. While they can’t make it to the Frequent Traveler University in San Diego March 6th-8th, you can win their ticket! This may sound a bit cheesy, but it’s pretty cool to see folks helping a fellow mile junkie out. My first giveaway ends tomorrow night. I’ll go ahead and draw […]

Here’s a quick peek at things I found of interest today in the world of travel: Would you trade the ability to recline in your airline seat for a convenient place to mount your tablet for in-flight “self-supplied” entertainment? Monarch Airlines, a British low-cost carrier based at Luton airport, has installed a new seat that doesn’t recline but has a spot in the seat back in front of you to mount your tablet. HT: uggboy on Milepoint. Is one major airline deciding there’s no money in selling miles to their […]
It was only a few hours ago that I posted my thoughts on the little Twitter kerfluffle from last night over One Mile At a Time’s Kickstarter project to raise money to fly in a new Etihad residence. It might be a bit of a buzz kill to folks that want to pick a fight with me on this, but I really don’t have a huge issue with what she said. I’m a big fan of free speech and respect people’s right to express their opinions. And, I’ve seen a […]
