Good afternoon everyone, happy Friday! I was working on my Buy Miles & Points Page and found 5 offers that are ending this month. 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 5 offers that end soon. Up first, Avianca Airlines is offering up to a 135% bonus, depending on the number of Avianca Airlines LifeMiles you purchase. This offer expires today – August 27.
Good morning everyone, happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you are celebrating with your loved ones today. Laura and I are having a lazy Sunday after we made some delicious banana pancakes this morning. If you want to read a cute miles and points inspired love story (about yours truly), check out these 3 posts:
Happy Valentine’s Day and have a great weekend everyone!
Good morning everyone. Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of being a guest / co-host on the Miles to Memories Podcast. I spoke with Shawn Coomer (MtM Founder) and Mark Ostermann (MtM Managing Editor), while Joe Cheung took the day/night off. We talked about my British Airways / Match.com love story, our pre-honeymoon to Moorea, and our upcoming road trip to Carmel / Monterey.

Good morning everyone, I hope your week is going well. These are very uncertain times and I have difficulty finding motivation to write about anything travel related. Therefore, I decided to share my feelings in a series of Work from Home Diary posts. Feel free to share your work from home feelings in the comments section below.
First of all, I am very fortunate that I work for a company where we have the ability to work from home. My heart goes out to everyone affected in the retail industry, travel/hospitality industry, restaurant/bar industry and many other industries that are affected by the coronavirus.
Last week, my company gave us the option to work from home or go into the office. I decided to work from home the entire week. I’m used to working from home a few days a week, but working from home 5 days in a row takes a toll (both mentally and physically). In my next diary post, I will share how I am doing in week 2.
Laura and I were supposed to fly to Ireland last Friday (March 13) for a week for her spring break (she is an assistant principal). On Wednesday evening (March 11), the Europe travel ban was announced and we decided to cancel our Ireland trip. I cancelled our Aer Lingus flights booked with British Airways Avios, hotel awards booked at Hyatt and Radisson Blu, Hertz rental car, and a few Expedia activities. Canceling everything online only took a few minutes and thankfully everything resulted in a full refund, with the exception of the $55 cancellation fees per person charged by British Airways (I called to see if they could be waived, but it was not possible).

Good morning everyone. A few weeks ago, I was a guest on the Saverocity Observation Deck podcast. We talked about my Ireland trip (now cancelled), my British Airways / Match.com love story, and what’s in my iPhone wallet. The episode is ~40 mins for regular listeners or ~60 minutes if you are a Patreon paid subscriber (you will hear Laura make her podcast debut). Listen to the episode on your favorite podcasting app or listen online here. Have a great day everyone.
