Posts That Caught My Eye
This is not good news although I have personally moved on from purchasing these cards. It is sad to see people getting stuck with non-pin cards and also people having their accounts shutdown. Best to avoid GCM for Visas completely for now. Without pins these cards are basically useless.
The lowest fare British Airways and Iberia tickets will now earn as low as 25% mileage if credited to American. This is not a surprise given other recent changes, but it definitely does lower the overall value of their partnership in my opinion.
If you are going to be in Vegas this weekend for TravelCon2 then here are some of the extracurricular events taking place. I am not sure which ones I will be able to make it to given the overall craziness of my schedule this weekend, but I am looking forward to meeting as many people as possible.
Thankfully I don’t travel too much for work, however having just come off a stretch of 16 of 18 days on the road, I certainly understand and believe a lot of what is mentioned here to be true. I honestly am not sure I could handle a job where I traveled 50% or more of the time for work.
- Amex Offers is giving a $50 statement credit with a $100 or more purchase at Airbnb. Link the offer in your online account or tweet #AmexAirbnb. It works on gift cards, but there doesn’t appear to be a really big resale market for these gift cards so this is most likely best for personal use. Full terms here. You can also get $20 for signing up as a new member.
- Silvercar is offering a free day on rentals of 3+ days. The best part is this works for existing customers. To get the discount use the code FREEAFTER3. New members will probably want to go with the $100 off 2+ day rentals I wrote about the other day.
Have a great evening!
