Here we are! Another Monday means another week in the books! I hope you had a great week last week and a weekend at the end of it. We had a busy time with many things including dealing with foreign government offices (which means it took a long time!).
Miles, Points, and Travel

- That Was Fast: Chase Freedom Unlimited 3X Everywhere Gone – This was an incredible credit card offer, even though it had no sign-up bonus. However, it certainly did not last long!
- New Payment System Rolling Out for Airlines To Battle Credit Card Fees – European airlines are planning on rolling out a new payment system for airlines and their customers. However, it will likely not be a good deal for customers since customers would forgo the protection of credit cards and the value of the point that could be earned. We shall see!
- Chase Made A Brilliant Move That Other Issuers Should Copy – Chase made a move on their popular Chase Sapphire Preferred that shifted affiliate fees into points for the customer. See why this is a great deal and why other issuers should copy it.
- People REALLY Wanted JetBlue’s NY Pizza Delivery – As happens with great promos, JetBlue hit a wall, technically speaking. It seems that a lot of LA residents REALLY wanted NYC pizza!
- Two Great American Airlines Credit Card Offers – There are two American Airline credit card offers that you should check out. The second version is particularly interesting…

- This Smart Luggage Company Shuts Down Due to Airline Policies – Airlines started banning certain smart carryons earlier this year and this ban has had an impact that forced the company that started it all to shut down.
- Good News for Travelers in Big Cities: Starbucks Bathrooms Open for Non-Customers – One of the great things about blogging is that readers often help you to realize that you overlooked the really bad downsides of certain situations! As a traveler to large cities, I liked the thought of Starbucks allowing anyone to use their bathrooms now. Of course, I like to be a customer as well but sometimes I don’t have time to wait in line to place an order for 15 minutes first!
- This Hyatt Presidential Suite is a Standard Upgrade! – It is not often that you can use a suite upgrade or points to grab a Hyatt presidential suite, but you can at this hotel!
- 3 Things I HATE When Running – Running in the great outdoors is great but there are some things that I cannot stand!

That’s it for this week! Hopefully we will see some good travel deals coming out this week!
