Good morning everyone, happy Friday! 2 weekends ago, I was flying back home from Hawaii on Alaska Airlines. Everything was going well until we got to Maui airport. We were supposed to depart from Maui (OGG) at 4:15pm and land in Oakland (OAK) at 12:14am. Unfortunately, our flight departed 5 hours later than planned. Our inbound aircraft was coming from San Diego (SAN) and was supposed to depart San Diego at 7am. But due to mechanical issues, that flight departed 10 hours later at 5pm (I feel bad for people on that flight who were stuck at the airport for 10+ hours). The late inbound flight caused our flight to be delayed by 5 hours. I was tracking both Alaska Airlines flights and here were the last flight emails I received for each flight.

Good afternoon everyone, I just received the following email from Hyatt. Chase, Hyatt, and Visa have teamed up to create Hyatt Credit Card Offers (not a very original name). The platform is the same platform that was built for Marriott and Chase Slate. According to the email, Hyatt Credit Card Offers is currently available and will run through July 31. Strange that they would have an end date in mind, but they could extend it if the product is successful and popular. To get started, click here and have your Chase Hyatt Credit Card available.
Good afternoon everyone. During last week’s rundown of credit cards who charged me an annual fee in March, I wrote about my Wells Fargo Propel World American Express Credit Card. In that post, I mentioned that this credit card has a $175 annual fee and I could not figure out how Wells Fargo could justify charging $175 for this credit card. I also reminded myself that this credit card offers a $100 airline reimbursement credit each cardmember year. And since the annual fee posted on April 2, I figured I was in a new cardmember year. I then used this credit card to buy a $100 Southwest Airlines egift card. A few days later, I received the following email regarding the $100 airline reimbursement.
