Good morning everyone, we have some exciting news to announce – our blog has been added to the Top 100 Points & Miles Blogs:
I have to admit, I hadn’t heard of mightytravels before receiving the update, but it’s good to be recognized. We couldn’t have done it without you, our loyal readers, so Thank You!
If you want to check out the list, and vote for our blog, that’d be great, if not, no worries. I haven’t heard of all the blogs on the list, but I’m fairly certain we’re the only military-themed one.
–US Airways and TAM join Oneworld, and apparently, US Airways old, idiosyncratic routing rules are still in place, which could be a good or bad thing depending on what agent you talk to. You can now use BA Avios to book domestic US Air routes; Avios are distance-based, and have some really good redemption values depending on the distance.
-There have been some stories that Vanilla Reload purchases w/ credit cards are going away, but it’s still working at my CVS in Philly. Have you tried your town?
-Finally, there’s a new American Express Card out with the highest signup bonus I’ve seen yet – 200,000 points! Application page is here. I don’t know much about it yet, so I’ll be researching it and putting out a subsequent post.
