Miles, Points, and Travel

That’s it for last week. Not a lot of posts that are still active (several deals that have since expired). I did wind up with more Daily Getaway packages – I picked up 5 Avis one-day rental certificates. I am always able to get extreme value from these so they are definitely worth it for me!
