Welcome back to our Sunday Summary Series where we review the stories that were covered throughout the week.
To help interested runners make the most out of their trips to different parts of the world, I will use some of the Marathon Maniac Mondays to highlight the different continents and how you can hit two marathons in two countries for the same miles as one country! This week, we looked at the Frankfurt Marathon and the Athens Marathon. Two great, historic, large marathons on one award! Pretty great trip and great value! Be sure to check it out!
Every runner knows the danger of checking your racing gear on the way to a marathon. This post highlights some of my picks for different types of carry-on bags that I have found to be useful for my running trips. Looking for a bargain priced item? It is in the list! Looking for high-priced, high-quality gear? That’s there too!
Do you have a US Airways credit card? Read this post to find out how you can earn up to 50,000 US Airways bonus miles for referring your friends for the same great card.
If you were waiting for a good deal on the Rosetta Stone program, Wednesday was the day to get that deal! Delta’s Skymiles shopping network was offering 12 miles per dollar for purchases on Rosetta Stone. I find Rosetta Stone to be a great program and they have had some helpful deals to earn miles when purchasing. If you missed it, don’t worry – I am sure there will be something else coming eventually.
American Airlines is having a giveaway that can see you potentially win 25,000 miles! However, even the losers are winners as everyone that enters will receive an offer to get a 2,500 AA mile rebate on award travel that takes place this fall.
Have you ever wanted to run in Death Valley? If you ever had that desire, than of course you would want to do it in July when it is hottest! But, it looks like June was seeing the hottest temps there this year, sparing the Badwater Ultramarathon runners the highest temperatures of the season!
I have had many questions of late about meeting the minimum spending requirements for bonus offers from cards and how and when the bonus points post. I outline some of the details you need to know plus some tips on getting your points quicker.
That’s it for this week! Let’s see what comes up in the week following. One good thing – I will be back home with my family who I have had to be away from for a couple of weeks. I am looking forward to it!
