New Amex Offers, Another Way to Earn Points for SW Companion Pass, Getting Some Amex Offers Otherwise Unavailable, Unfriendly United Changes, & More

Written by Charlie

We take a look at another way to earn points toward the SW Companion Pass, the new Amex Offers from the week, unfriendly United changes, and more.

Summertime is a great time to get out and see the world – whether it is by travel or just getting out and running some new routes. We are finally in our new home and I have some incredible new running routes to try. Thankfully, some of them are trails so this will help me in my quest to get back to trail running. But, they all involve hills – something I need to work more on but something I do not like!

A Passing

Yesterday, my grandfather passed away. He was the first Charles (my father as junior, me as the third, and my son as the fourth) and also the original deal hunter in our family. I was fortunate to have been able to have seen him many, many times and to have learned many wonderful lessons from him over the years. He was a very intelligent man that passed along many lessons of character and hard work to his family. He will be very missed and I am thankful for the time that I did get with him over the years.

Travel, Miles, & Points

The travel week is certainly not starting off very well for Delta passengers. Hopefully, you are able to still have a safe and sane week of travel – wherever you are headed this week.
