This is the last chance to book an incredible first class award for just 40K miles, you could rent a Gulfstream 650 for under $200, find out about Delta coach from JFK to Venice, and much more!

Last week was a good one for finding some travel deals for our family! We were able to get some very cheap flights for our time in the US – on dates and times that worked for us! To make it even better, it is the day before my status with AA ends so we all get to reap a bit from my elite benefits – though that means I will fly with my family 5 hours and then turn around to fly back and then drive 16 hours. 🙂 But, it means more time with family so I am ok with that!

For Apple fans, last Friday was preorder time for the new iPhone X. Anyone else grab a device for launch day? I was able to meet some spending thresholds, help out a friend, and get a phone to flip. Not bad!

Miles, Points, and Deals

And that is it for this past week! I was doing some race research and going through the e-mails I get from marathons and found a race I may just sign up for this week! I will be running my first marathon in almost two years (yeah, I can’t believe that!) next February in Arizona and now may do another race the next month that is one of the most beautiful races in the world! Stay tuned for some details on that one!
