Welcome back to our Sunday Summary Series where we review the posts that were covered throughout the past week.
The last two weeks have been two of my slowest (posting) weeks in the last several months. I had a lot going on, plus a bit of travel that took more of my posting time than I would have liked. But, back to it this week! Thanks for reading along and hope you have been able to pick up something this week!
There are times when it comes to travel that no news is certainly not good news. I had one of those classic experiences this past week on my way home. Hey, just a little update would be great! 🙂
A $1,200 flight voucher is a lot of money! It can be used to accrue a lot of miles (in fact, I could have picked up 44,000 miles with that money all in one trip!), but I turned down that offer. In fact, it didn’t even really take me long to decide that. Find out why.
Aegean Airlines has been the door to easy Star Alliance Gold for the last few years. It has been a great way to get priority treatment when flying Star Alliance airlines and access to airline lounges around the world. But, that door to the easy status is closing this November.
Southwest is running a limited-time offer on the purchase of their points. However, that does not mean that you should take them up on it! In fact, there is really only one reason that you should be buying Southwest points – now or ever.
Everyone likes to be able to earn a referral bonus! Well, Chase is giving you that opportunity with their Chase Sapphire Preferred. For every successful referral that you make, you can receive 5,000 Ultimate Reward points. Not a bad deal! Points for your family and friends and points for you!
With the upcoming changes of the Aegean Airlines program for their frequent flyers, it is worth looking at what the elite passengers will be gaining and losing. It turns out – Aegean is giving quite a few benefits in exchange for taking away the ability to hold Star Alliance Gold status for a really long time.
Small Business Saturday is a great day to rack up on rebates, courtesy of American Express. This year, you get to have three times the fun and credits as they have upped their offer for their customers. But, it will take a little more work on your part to cash in big.
The Boston Marathon’s registration has closed and all entrants have been given notice of acceptance or denial based on their time. Did you get in? If not, here is how much you missed it by.
How would you like to win a nice camera to take along for shots on the road? This is a perfect little portable job to carry around and not have to worry about your phone. In fact, it will take better photos than your phone will! There is still time to enter if you have not already!
The Berlin Marathon was this morning and it was certainly the race to follow! World records at that distance have been set more on that course than any other. This morning was no different!
If you need a pair of sunglasses, this deal will last for a few more hours and gives you the chance to save big on them! Pick up a pair for your workout, your commute, or as a gift.
It is official! There has been a new marathon world record and it was set this morning in Berlin. Not only that, but a huge barrier was broken in the marathon for the first time ever. Finally, two men actually broke the previous world record. Not bad!
