For the everyday flyer, the more competition between airlines, the better. The Federal Aviation Administration granted approval to Southwest Airlines to fly to Hawaii after gaining ETOPS certification.
One of the better consistent hotel promotions is now live. IHG allows a select group of its hotels to be booked for 5,000-15,000 points. For everyday people, being able to book hotels for less points could allow you to take another vacation somewhere.
Over the last five years, I’ve become addicted to the miles and points game motivated by cheap vacations and getting value out of credit cards and mileage programs. I’ve taken vacations that I wouldn’t have been able to afford all thanks to dedicating a little time to make sure I was maximizing the right credit cards.
