Good afternoon everyone, happy Friday! I was working on my Buy Miles & Points Page and found 5 offers that end in the next week. 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, United Airlines is offering up to a 40% discount, depending on the number of United Airlines MileagePlus Miles you purchase. This offer expires today – January 28.
Good morning everyone, happy New Year’s Eve! Every year, I like to check out my stats from Google Analytics to see which blog posts were the most popular. I created 2 lists by looking at all blog posts written in 2021 and then I looked at which posts were read the most in 2021, but written in previous years (#stayingpower). I will list the blog posts from top to bottom based on pageviews, share the original published date, and provide a short summary of each blog post. If you are curious, here were the most popular posts from 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020.
2021’s Most Read Posts (Written in 2021)
- Wells Fargo Discontinues Temporary Debit Cards & ATM Access Code Feature (Effective April 1) (2/12/2021) – This post has received over 300K pageviews since going live in February and makes up 25% of my total pageviews for the year. I had no idea that this post would be so popular, but it shows how many Wells Fargo customers were effected by the loss of temporary debit cards and ATM access codes.
Good morning everyone, happy New Year’s Eve Eve (emphasis on the extra Eve). Yesterday, I wrote about my dismal prediction performance (I didn’t predict I would do so poorly – another wrong prediction of mine) in my post How Right (or Wrong) were my 2021 Airline, Hotel & Credit Card Predictions? My new crystal ball just arrived from Amazon, so I am going to put it to the ultimate test and I’ll provide my 2022 airline, hotel, and credit card predictions. I’m guaranteed to get between 0% and 100% correct, but only time will tell…
My 2022 Airline Predictions
- Alaska Airlines or Southwest Airlines will bring back their “convert travel funds to airline miles” feature.
- American Airlines will return as a Citi ThankYou Points airline transfer partner.
- Avianca will give Turkish Airlines a run for their money for domestic Star Alliance awards.
- British Airways will let you use Avios to pay the taxes, fees, and fuel surcharge portion of award tickets.
- Delta Airlines, Southwest Airlines, or United Airlines will introduce a “Miles and Cash” payment option for award tickets (pay 10,000 miles or pay 8,000 miles + $40).
- JetBlue will partner with another US airline for award bookings.
- United Airlines will be a transfer partner with Brex, Citi, or American Express.
Good morning everyone, I hope your week is going well. A year ago, I wrote My Rock Solid 2021 Airline, Hotel & Credit Card Predictions. It is now time to review my 2021 predictions and see how right (or wrong) I was. My original predictions are in black, I will comment in green if my prediction was right, and comment in red if my prediction was wrong. Let’s see how I did…
My 2021 Airline Predictions (1 for 3)
- Alaska Airlines or Southwest Airlines will make their “convert travel funds to airline miles” feature a permanent feature on their site. Wrong – sadly this was a temporary feature that each airline introduced in 2020 but they did not make this a permanent feature in 2021.
- American Airlines will finally become a Citi ThankYou Points airline transfer partner. Right – but only for a few months. I hope American Airlines comes back as a Citi ThankYou Point airline transfer partner in 2022.
- Delta Airlines or United Airlines will introduce a “Cash and Miles” payment option for award tickets (pay 10,000 miles or pay 8,000 miles + $40). Wrong – neither Delta nor United introduced a “Cash and Miles” payment option.
