Another week of miles, points, and travel is in the books! With a lot of sales and deals this week, I know a lot of people scored some great stuff. I bought quite a bit of stuff (not as much as others did!) that will be flipped for a profit and for the earnings of the miles and points. All in all, a nice week of collecting more miles and points!
As happens every Sunday evening, here are the posts from throughout the week here on Running with Miles. I will be putting the deal posts in here as well and tagging the ones that have expired as [Expired] so you can check back and read up on those. In the past, similar deals from Black Friday week have popped up again as Christmas gets closer so this way you can have a heads-up on some of the deals in case it happens again.
