Welcome to this week’s Sunday Summary as we look at the posts from the week. I cannot believe we are in the 2nd half of 2015 – unbelievable!
Here in Greece, this week has been full of turmoil and we are now entering a week that is filled with uncertainties, to be sure. If you have upcoming travel to Greece, feel free to contact me to get the American perspective of travel here and maybe some tips how to still enjoy yourself while being safe.
Deal Expired – This was a nice fast and easy way to grab points at a bit of a profit. Make sure you follow the blog to get deals like this.
Greece has had a very difficult week. It has even been difficult for Americans as we also searched for ATMs that had cash. It took me 10 ATMs to find cash. It is getting easier now, but the lines are long and the money is still capped for Greek accounts.
The United Club card just saw a fee hike. It is possible to get it fee-free! But, if not, is it worth it? This post gives an in-depth look at the card and the features.
Southwest has extended their schedule and it now covers the biggest race series in Florida!
The Western States 100 is the Boston Marathon of ultra marathons. Check out this video of the oldest lady to ever complete this incredible race.

Deal Expired – Hopefully, if you wanted a sale like this, you got in on this! There were some pretty good rates available!

A great promo has popped up that can turn your SPG points into AA miles for a total of a 50% bonus! This is a great way to boost your AA mileage account for some awesome redemption methods.
A new 75,000 mile offer on the Executive Advantage card has come up, but is it the best AA card offer? This other card may be even better.
Baggage fees are huge for airlines. This week, one airline added a free bag to their credit card while another one dumped free bags for customers and are now hitting customers for that fee.
A new Amex Offer has come that is a great deal for those seeking athletic gear at a discount.
The great travel redemption credit card, the Barclaycard Arrival Plus, has just hit a devaluation. When it comes back, it will offer quite a few features at a cut-rate from what they used to be.
Two great offers on business cards from Amex have come up. You can get 75,000 points EACH, so check them out!
