5,000 Bonus Alaska Miles for New Members Who Take a Flight!


Yesterday I posted about how to get 500 free Singapore Airlines miles just for creating a new account, and you should since you can use Singapore miles to fly Star Alliance partners like United and you can transfer miles from many credit card programs to Singapore at a 1:1 ratio. 5,000 Bonus Alaska Miles for New Members Who Take a Flight In the comments section of that post ‘Trent” pointed out that there was a similar incentive to join the…

Get 500 Free Miles from Joining Singapore Airlines!

Untitled design(5)

Earlier this week a few changes related to using Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer miles kicked in. Namely, these changes included sadly discontinuing the 15% online award booking discount, eliminating fuel surcharges on Singapore and Silkair redemptions, and the mileage redemption rates of many Singapore awards went up. The Star Alliance award chart was thankfully not impacted by these changes. Get 500 Free Miles from Singapore Airlines While I was playing around with the Singapore website today to see these changes in action, I noticed…

Which is Better? Hyatt Regency Maui or Andaz Maui


If you want to use your Hyatt points to stay on Maui you have two choices, the Hyatt Regency Maui in Ka’anapali or the Andaz Maui in Wailea. These hotels are located in different parts of the island not only geographically, but they also have very different feels and offer very different getaways. Truthfully, aside from the obvious similarities of both being ocean front Hyatt properties in Maui, the two resorts have very little in common and offer very distinct experiences.…

4 Reasons Why the SPG Business Amex May Be The Smartest Choice

I love using SPG points!

Two of my very favorite credit card sign-up bonuses right now are the Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express and the Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American Express. Both have a $0 introductory annual fee the first year (then $95), and both are offering limited time increases to the highest bonus level we have seen until April 5, 2017. I value SPG points at a higher rate than pretty much all other points, so a 10,000 point increase over the regular…

Eating in Maui on a Family Vacation

There are so many things I love about Hawaii that it is worth the long trek every time we make it, and one of those many things that I love about Hawaii is the food.

Details on Westin Grand Cayman Renovations and Award Pricing

Westin Grand Cayman Lobby

Yesterday I shared the good news that for some mysterious reason the Westin Grand Cayman was pricing as a Category 5 SPG property instead of a Category 6 property as it has been for the last year. This is pretty big news first because the resort is located on an insane spot on Seven Mile Beach, and Grand Cayman is pretty easy to get to for many of us at less than 500 miles from Miami. It is also big…
