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 :)
Grant and Ray @ Chicago Seminars (October 2014)
Daraius (Million Mile Secrets), Drew (Travel is Free / The Points Guy) & Grant @ Chicago Seminars (October 2016)
Hopefully I will see a few Travel with Grant readers at the conference. Safe travels to Chicago!
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 7 offers that end this week. Up first, Avianca Airlines is offering up to a 145% bonus, depending on the number of Avianca LifeMiles you purchase. This offer expires tomorrow – October 4.

Good morning everyone, I hope your week is going well. By the time you read this post, I will be flying Cathay Pacific business class back to San Francisco. At the beginning of the trip, I flew Air China business class from San Francisco to Beijing. For the last 10 days, I have been hopping around Asia and I visited these cities:
Beijing, China (1 night)
Yangon, Myanmar (3 nights)
Dhaka, Bangladesh (1 night)
Paro & Thimphu, Bhutan (2 nights)
Kathmandu, Nepal (2 nights)

Good morning everyone. As a result of my recent July Credit Card App-O-Rama, I now had 2 Citi Premier Credit Cards. The plan all along was to product change the first / oldest Citi Premier Credit Card into a new Citi Rewards+ Credit Card. I will keep the second / newest Citi Premier Credit Card as is because I need access to the Citi Thank You Point airline transfer partners. I called Citi and asked the rep to convert my Citi Premier Credit Card into a Citi Rewards+ Credit Card. The rep processed the conversion and stated the following:
The conversion process would take a total of 51 days, starting on September 5, 2019.
The conversion process would be completed on October 26, 2019 (if I wanted to stop the conversion process, I needed to call back before this date).
My credit card account number would not change (but the credit card expiration date and CVV code would most likely change).
It would take up to 11 days for benefits to kick in (I’m not sure if that is true, by credit card benefits seemed to kick in right away).
My new Citi Rewards+ Credit Card would arrive in 10-14 days (but I could continue to use my existing Citi Premier Credit Card until the new credit card arrived).
After the call, I logged into my Citi online account and spotted my new Citi Rewards+ Credit Card beneath my Citi Premier Credit Card.
