One Mile At a Time

New Episode! Hotels, Promos And Cards, Oh My!

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 […]

New ANA Award Chart, Delta’s New “Sale”, And Insight Into Google Flights. Travel News I Missed Last Week

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 […]

A Second FREE Ticket To The San Diego Frequent Traveler University March 6th-8th!

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.

Airplane Seats That Don’t Recline, Airlines That Don’t Want To Save Their Miles, Airlines Downgrading Passengers To A Low-Cost Carrier and a Husband Using Miles To Solve His Wife’s Issue. Things I Find Interesting On Saturday, May 31st, 2014

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 […]

Sometimes Good Things Come Out Of Bad Social Media

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 […]
