Good afternoon everyone. I was working on my Buy Miles & Points Page and found a few offers ending soon. Always check the math to make sure that buying miles & points makes sense for you. Do not buy miles & points speculatively unless you have a use in mind. With that said, here are 3 offers that end this week. Up first, Avianca Airlines is offering up to a 145% bonus, depending on the number of Avianca Airlines LifeMiles you purchase. This offer expires tomorrow – November 12.
Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. Last night on CBS 60 Minutes, there was a 2 part interview with JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon. He talked about the economy, executive compensation (he made $31 million last year) and the recent recession. He is the only CEO of a major bank that survived the Great Recession (he has been the CEO since 2006). There was a lot of great info in this interview. Unfortunately, there was no information about Chase credit cards.

Good afternoon everyone. After our short Alaska Airlines flight from Santa Rosa / Sonoma County to San Diego, we took an Uber to the Courtyard San Diego Downtown Hotel. I picked this hotel because the “hotel is in the former San Diego Trust and Savings Bank building, and the old vault has been converted into a one-of-a-kind meeting space that your colleagues will be talking about for years to come.” I love staying in old, historic, charming hotels, like my Amazing Stay at DoubleTree Arctic Club Hotel in Seattle (Historic Building Built in 1917).
This hotel costs 35,000 Marriott Bonvoy Points per night, so I used my Free Night Certificate from the Chase Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card to book the first night and then I used 35,000 Marriott Bonvoy Points for the second night. Somehow, I received 5 free Suite Night Upgrades in my Marriott Bonvoy account (probably from combining my SPG & Marriott Rewards accounts and from having several Marriott credit cards with elite nights stacking). I decided to use my last 2 Suite Night Upgrades at this hotel because they were going to expire on December 31, 2019, and I don’t have any other Marriott stays booked or planned for the rest of the year. This turned out to be a great use of my Suite Night Upgrades…
Good afternoon everyone. We are a few days away from the Chicago Seminars travel conference! It is held every October near Chicago O’Hare at the Holiday Inn Elk Grove. Tickets are $125 and still available. Tickets include access to the conference (runs Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon), lunch Saturday & Sunday, coffee/snack breaks, and a complimentary drink at Saturday’s Happy Hour. Here is the current schedule and speaker topics. I won’t be presenting at the conference, but some of my favorite bloggers will be (Frequent Miler, Rapid Travel Chai, One Mile at a Time, Bald Thoughts, etc). If you see me there, come say hi :)
Hopefully I will see a few Travel with Grant readers at the conference. Safe travels to Chicago!
