Welcome to this week’s round-up of posts from throughout the week here at Running with Miles! It was a pretty good week for miles and points and I was able to put some promos to use to pick up some big bonus miles as a result. Plus, I easily booked quite a few Hyatt reservations thanks to a great new feature online. It’s all right below!
