Best in Miles, Points, Credit Cards, Travel and More: News Digest Aug 1 — Aug 7 2021

As you know (or not) I don’t normally repost info that can be found in major blogs unless I can add something substantial to what has already been said. I used to run some weekly digests, which I quit because it wasn’t — I don’t know — satisfying. And yet, after 1.5 years of theContinue Reading

I’m Not Going to Brazil After All: Here Is My Cancellation Story

  Here is my previous post on the topic: I’m Fully Vaccinated With Moderna. Should I Go to Brazil This Summer As Planned? Against my best judgment I almost went to Brazil yesterday. Unfortunately, that wasn’t to be, due to a family emergency that had absolutely nothing to do with Covid. Oh well. That broughtContinue Reading

    UPDATED 12.21.2020 (see Cheapest miles to Europe in Economy, #2) Whether you’ve noticed or not, I’ve taken a hell of a sabbatical lately on my blog.

Post-COVID-19 Travel: I Booked a Flight for 35,000-Miles in Business Class From JFK to Lisbon

  Back in January, Nick from Frequent Miler shared an amazing find: 35,000 Avianca miles for a TAP Portugal Business Class seat from New York to Lisbon. That’s really astonishing because a regular LifeMiles redemption rate between the U.S. and Europe is 63,000 miles. I would’ve snagged that ticket right away, but I needed toContinue Reading
