Lufthansa First Class Review

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of flying Lufthansa’s A330-300 in First Class. It was my first time flying Lufthansa First Class and I really enjoyed it! I have some pictures and an overview of the trip and my experience in this post.

Limited-Time Offer: 60,000 Ultimate Reward Points with Chase Ink Plus and Bold

For small business week, Chase upped the bonus on their Chase Ink Plus and Ink Bold business cards from 50,000 Ultimate Reward points to 60,000 Ultimate Reward points. This is a very decent bonus upgrade since these extra points are worth, at the very least, $100 and more like $200 depending on the transfer partner. If you have not gotten in on this yet and have been thinking about it, the bonus was extended through tomorrow so sign-up!

Tuesday Tools and Tips: Staying Organized When Booking Travel

Booking travel can be very confusing. It can be difficult to remember all the different facets of your upcoming trip and then not forgetting any segments! Here are some of my tips I use to stay organized when booking travel.

Great Offer for Platinum Business Credit Card from American Express

Delta released a special, limited-time offer on their Delta Platinum Business credit card. This offer gives a total of 55,000 miles – 20,000 elite miles and 35,000 award miles. This is a great card and a fantastic offer! It expires July 7, 2013.

United Airlines – Change #1

Last week, United Airlines instituted some new changes to their elite/award program. One of the changes that had no advance notice had to do with fees in regards to when you make your award reservation, whether you change it, and if you have to cancel it. None of them are good!

Getting an Extra 10,000 UR Points

With the limited-time offer of the Chase Ink Bold and Ink Plus, Chase is offering a bonus of 60,000 Ultimate Reward points when you are approved for one of those cards. What happens if you already applied for the card? No problem – if you applied within the last 90 days, you should be able to get the difference in points!
