It has been a little while since I did a summary post. Things have been quite hectic around here over the last month or so! Now, it is getting busy again with trip planning. I have booked many trips in the last couple of days, some with some great deals. So, it will get busy again soon!

- New 30% United Transfer Bonus A Great Choice For SPG & Marriott Transfers – This transfer bonus is great, thanks to the Marriott Flight and Hotel packages. This is certainly better than the recent one released by American Airlines (which excludes the packages).
