Miles to Memories Recap
Welcome to the weekly “Best of Miles to Memories” recap series. Here you will find links to all of the still relevant posts from the past week. We saw a ton of limited time deals that ended quickly this past week. Make sure to subscribe to our daily newsletter so you don’t miss out.
This week we covered a lot of exciting news in credit cards. Amex and Chase both came out with new increased sign-up bonuses for popular cards. We also crowned a new MVP in the premium card game. We reviewed the new Bahamas resort, Baha Mar and I discussed whether it would give Atlantis a run for it’s money. This week we also saw some loyalty program promotions and some yearly category changes. Marriott changed more than 20% of it’s properties to new categories, while SPG barely made a dent, read on to check if you’re affected.
To make the posts in this recap easier to wade through, my “Editor’s Picks” in each section are in bold. If you have questions about anything you read feel free to contact me anytime. Enjoy!
