Slowly but surely over the past several months we have been working to make this site a bit more user friendly and helpful for your travel/miles and points planning.  The look, feel, and display of newer blog posts hasn’t really changed (yet), but we have tried to make some of the other resources and information on the site easier to use.

For now, we have made most of this information more user-friendly by better utilizing the drop-down tabs at the top of the blog.  If you hover any of the main topics, you will see several additional options you can click on for archived information.

Over the past several years, we have built a pretty extensive listing of all the family friendly hotel reviews, destination tips, and more that we hope will be a good resources for families looking to decide where to spend their points.  Some of these reviews have started to also include a video review component so you can see more about the hotel or destination with your own eyes.

We have a more extensive listing than in the past of some of the top credit card sign-up offers out there broken down by the type of card (airline, hotel, flexible point, etc).  To make the list as helpful as possible, we have listed offers well beyond just the standard ones we may or may not have affiliate links to, but included the best public offers we are award of for each card.

We also keep a pretty up-to-date listing of the current airline and hotel promotions so you don’t miss out on miles and points in your travels.

There is a whole Getting Started tab with a Beginner’s Guide, links to the sign-up pages for various reward programs, tips on a child’s first flight, and other FAQ’s.

My hope is that Mommy Points will be a helpful resource for you not just based on whatever the posts of the day are about, but that some of these other travel resources we put together will be useful for you to refer back to whenever you need them.

We are working toward giving the whole site a face-lift at some point later this year, and I’d love to hear what type of improvements or additions you would like to see.  We aren’t looking to make changes just for the sake of change, but after running this site for the past three years without any major changes, we want to continue to make sure we are meeting your miles, points, and travel needs as much as we can.  As always, thanks for reading and spending a part of your busy day here with us!

  1. So the “top” credit card offers are mainly only ones you get a kickback from? I would think the Citi AAdvantage MC that gives 100K miles and Admiral’s club access would be one of the best bets, but I don’t see it listed.

  2. well-organized, for sure!

    Only one suggestion – the CC annual fee info is spotty on the airline/hotel pages. Sometimes it’s there, but others (I was looking for Club C) it’s absent.

    • Tex, no definitely not, though you are absolutely right that card needs to be there. Check again and thanks for the feedback!
      Colleen, I agree totally. With the cards that aren’t my affiliate links I can work to add that. With the ones that are, we can’t really change or expand beyond the bullets that have specifically been approved by the banks. It is so strange when that info sometimes doesn’t include the annual fee! Thanks for the feedback!

  3. Good job MP..

    When you redesign your page, the layout I like best is on Brains page the points guy. You might consider a alphabetical list like he has on the right. Makes it easy for me to find past articles. Just a thought. keep up the good work

  4. The fee on my US Airways card is due Monday. So far, they’ve offered to cut the fee in half and to add an additional 1,000 miles ($10 value). Has anyone rec’d a better offer. Recently, I attempted to book a flight from Miami to San Diego via US Airways’ Website but was unsuccessful in my attempt to us my points for a convenient, reasonably priced flight. As a result, I paid for a flight via American. It’s decision time. short.Should I spend the cash? Comments in insights pls.
