Okay… pretty cool deal to get an Apple TV 4K 32GB for a grand total of $83 (possibly even $48 and get DIRECTV Now free for 3 months!) You can order a maximum of 2 per household, just use a different email address. DIRECTV Now is running a promo where if you pay for 3 months of service, they will give you a free Apple TV 4K 32GB (MSRP $179). If you choose the lowest DIRECTV Now package of $35 a month, you will pay $105.
If you shop through BeFrugal, you can get $22 back for signing up for DIRECTV Now. If you don’t have a BeFrugal account, I would sign up for one first, close the window, then click the link below. If you don’t already have a BeFrugal account, I would appreciate it if you signed up with my referral link.
Start here at BeFrugal and click the Get Coupon button next to this offer: Get a 4K Apple TV (32GB) for $0. The DIRECTV Now promo is for 3 months now, not 4 months.
Buenos dias everyone! A couple of months ago, I logged into my Bank of America account and was surprised to see that my Merrill+ Visa Signature Card had a past due balance. Since I have a lot of credit cards, I always set them up for automatic payments initiated by the credit card company – that way, they’re usually on the hook if something goes wrong with a payment. Upon further investigation, I discovered that my automatic payment for the end of October had been scheduled and then canceled without any explanation. I also noticed that the same thing had happened to my Bank of America Spirit Airlines World MasterCard.
Greetings from Uyuni airport in Bolivia. I have a few minutes before my flight, so I wanted to get this post published. Sorry for the delay in posting this list, my crystal ball was in the shop for a tuneup. As you can tell from my 2017 travel predictions, I am wrong 99% of the time, so take these predictions with a grain of salt (that I took from the Salar de Uyuni salt flats in Bolivia). Here are some of my highly unlikely, but entertaining travel predictions for 2018. Enjoy!
After the Virgin America merger, Alaska Airlines will add new routes to Mexico, Canada, and the Caribbean
Delta Airlines will introduce cash and miles award tickets, then American Airlines and United Airlines will follow suit
Southwest Airlines will increase their Transfarency by automatically keeping track of travel funds in each account
JetBlue will add new routes along the West Coast and maybe to Hawaii
Singapore Airlines will allow you to book United Airlines awards online
British Airways will bring back the 4,500 Avios award price in the United States
Southwest seems bent on making the Companion Pass very difficult to get unless you fly Southwest every week. I believe credit card signup bonuses will no longer count toward the Companion Pass and Southwest might kill the whole concept of the Companion Pass entirely or switch to a certificate program similar to the Alaska Airlines companion fare or Virgin America companion ticket. Southwest Airlines did eliminate hotel transfers counting toward the Companion Pass, but credit card spend and sign up bonuses still count toward the Companion Pass. I am also the proud companion on my girlfriend’s Companion Pass.
Other airline credit cards will adopt the Alaska Airlines companion fare (you pay full price and your companion pays up to $120) or the Virgin America companion ticket (you pay full price and your companion pays full price minus $150). No, I don’t think any other airline added a companion fare as a credit card benefit.
American will introduce a basic economy fare class to compete/copy Delta and United. Yes, I got this one right!
Alaska Airlines will introduce a new level of elite status (maybe MVP Gold 100K?) No, Alaska Airlines MVP Gold 75K is still the highest elite level.
More airlines will get away from the 12,500 one way domestic ticket and start to introduce 5,000, 7,500, and 10,000 mile awards. Yes, I think Alaska Airlines announced cheaper awards on shorter flights.
British Airways will kill the 4,500 Avios award band globally and possibly remove one of their lower award tiers. No, 4,500 British Airways Avios tier is still available outside the US.
Singapore Airlines will allow us to book Star Alliance awards online, rather than calling in. Partially true, but not rolled out completely.
Hawaiian Airlines will get bought by a low cost airline, Southwest Airlines or JetBlue. No, no one bought Hawaiian Airlines.
We will see 1 or 2 more mileage matching promos, this time from a big legacy airline. No, no mileage matching promo like the JetBlue / Virgin America match last year.
My ~20,000 Spirit Airlines miles will expire and I won’t care. Sort of, my Spirit Airlines miles did expire, but I still shed 1 tear.
