Well, one third of the year is almost over. Time flies, doesn’t it? Here’s a recap of what we covered in the world of travel this month on The Points Pundit. Again, a huge thanks to our growing community of readers and supporters who read and comment on this blog.
I wrote about how my Hyatt points were not posting correctly for my monthly credit card spend. If you’re not sure, it might be a good time to log in and check your Hyatt account statement over the last few months.
I argue why Delta’s Flash Sales are much ado about nothing. What do you think?
These offers are still available. You can sign up and earn up to 75,000 Delta Sky Miles with these credit card offers from American Express.
I offer an explanation about why United’s MileagePlus program may have devalued, starting with the removal of award charts for United operated flights by the end of this year.
I go in some detail about one of my favorite redemption options. I’ve used this option to fly a ton on Singapore Airlines, which has a fantastic product, be it in economy or in business class.
Starbucks Rewards underwent major changes in April. Starting April 16, they made changes to the way you redeem your Starbucks stars. I view these changes as largely positive for those who love hot coffee/tea.
We wrote about how you can simply earn 25,000 American AAdvantage miles by just switching you cell phone provider!
This post seemed to have struck a chord with readers. It seems like even the most loyal customers of the major US domestic careers are seeing diminishing returns for their spend and loyalty. I analyze whether we need to give up on these frequent flyer programs altogether.
This is another of my favorite redemptions that gives me outsized value on my miles.
You’d have the opportunity to earn up to 50,000 Alaska Airlines Miles for refinancing your loan.
There’s some ongoing chatter about how the Chase United partnership may not be as steady as it may seem. I present some analysis after looking at what’s being covered in the media and what the financials of the relationship look like.
