Good evening! Here are some of the posts from the week here at Running with Miles. They include such things as the $1 billion airline route, get 20% off anything from Amazon, who should upgrade to the new World of Hyatt credit card, all the details about Amazon Prime Day, great award news about the new Grand Hyatt Athens, and more!
We have a family member visiting us this week, after United pulled some stupid stuff with his route (like cancelling the flight and then sending it out later as a “delay” before delaying and trying to cancel him the next day as well). At least he, and his luggage, finally made it!
