A roundup of posts that include what makes the Chase Sapphire Reserve a keeper, what is a frustrating hotel status to earn, are Ultimate Reward points too valuable, and much more!

Here we are – in August! For us, the weather is still heating up and that means days that are at or near 100 degrees as late as 8:30 at night! It’s ok, winter is right around the corner. 🙂

Below is a roundup of the posts from the week. It was a pretty popular week around here with many people reading and sharing a few of these posts so hopefully you enjoy them as well!

Miles, Points, and Travel

That’s it for last week! Hope you have a great week! I started out this week with a great snag (courtesy of Extreme Hotel Deals) – a presidential suite for only 66,000 points! Don’t worry, a review will be coming after I stay there!
