Amex FHR Gets Better in Vegas: Waldorf Astoria Increases Credit & Makes It MUCH Better!

Another great Las Vegas deal covered by Shawn. The really cool thing with this offer is that your Diamond or Gold benefits stack with the $125 F&B credit.  Not too shabby for one of the nicer hotels in Vegas.  Don’t forget about Shawn’s other popular post that shows you how you can essentially get paid to stay in Las Vegas this winter.

Booking a United Polaris Transcontinental Seat for Cheap!

There has been quite a bit of digital ink spilled on the Turkish Airways sweet spot.  But I think Ian is one of the first, if not the first, to put it into practice and then write about it.  He flew to Hawaii in coach for 7,500 miles and then decided to fly to Newark for fun to try out Polaris for 12,500 Citi ThankYou points.

How I Wound Up on the Bank of America Blacklist

I applaud Ryan for sharing his story about how bad decisions in his youth landed him on BOA’s blacklist.  It looks like they have a lifelong memory too unlike American Express.  Interesting that he is still able to get business cards though.

Marriott Bonvoy Announces Huge Negative Changes

This peak/off peak stuff is going to be garbage.  It will be an instant devaluation in my opinion and it will hurt too.  Nothing surprises me with Bonvoy these days, well maybe their 10% resort fee did a little bit.

That’s A Wrap!
