Oh My – I am Actually Considering a Quasi-Mileage Run

I’m certain it is in writing somewhere that I will not do a mileage run (but please – don’t feel obligated to find that and re-post it for me!).  😉  I am sure that was 100% true at the time it was written, but life keeps on moving and changing, and now this quasi-mileage run is sounding more and more logical for me.  I can’t tell if I truly have gone crazy, or if I would truly be crazy to…

Mini-Points: AA Business ExtrAA Points, 66,000 Free Hyatt Points, 20% Off JetBlue, and more!

Time to play some catch-up with some miles and points news and deals that are going on in the middle of this week.  Hard to believe it is already Wednesday (thank goodness for Monday holidays)! Okay, here goes catch-up time…… Earn 1,000 American Airlines Business ExtrAA points by spending just $5.00.  1,000 ExtrAA points is enough for three AAdmirals Club passes or half of a domestic round-trip ticket.  This was originally a targeted offer, but it seems like it may…

Why MegaDos Make Me a Better Traveler (And a MegaSwag Giveaway!)

It’s officially been twelve hours since my flight home from LAX went wheels up, thus concluding my journey through the first OneWorld MegaDO.  It is an abrupt transition going from the “MegaDo lifestyle” of jetting from one city to the next each day, hotel rooms to myself, unlimited free drinks and food at every corner, the company of adults who love to talk about points, miles, and aviation, and VIP treatment at every turn, to the world of a sick…

Only on a MegaDo is a Two Hour Delay Awesome!

On the OneWorld MegaDo flight yesterday from Seattle to LAX, the plane experienced a two-hour mechanical delay.  Normally, sitting on the plane for two extra hours would be at least mildly annoying, or if with my toddler, very challenging.  However, yesterday the two-hour delay was not only fun – it was awesome. Not only did the delay mean two more hours to hang out with your friends on the flight, it meant two more hours of “open bar”.  While I…

OneWorld MegaDO continues in Seattle

How many people can say that they did an emergency evacuation of a smoke-filled airplane cabin, slid down an emergency slide, did a water evacuation, and still capped off the night with happy hour on a 757 with 150+ of their new best friends? Here is a quick preview of the slide evacuation. I did it three times because it was so fun! (though I clearly never want to do any of this in a real emergency situation) vdG7VZm3KVY It…

New Hyatt Promo Announced at the OneWorld MegaDO

If you read this post, you are probably already aware that I missed out on the beginning of the MegaDO due to some flight delays getting from Houston to Dallas.  That meant that I missed the big announcement about Hyatt’s first promo of 2012.  However, I was lucky enough to chat with a Hyatt executive to get caught up on the promo after I arrived.  So, between The Point’s Guy’s great tweets from the event, and catching up with Hyatt…

Starting the OneWorld MegaDO…..a few hours late

In case you aren’t familiar with the location of the Mommy Points Home Base, I am located about 30-40 minutes North of IAH airport in Houston.  The domestic portion of the OneWorld MegaDO kicks off tonight in Dallas at the Hyatt Regency DFW.  Originally, my husband was going to road trip it up to Dallas with me for the night, hang out with some “crazy” frequent flyers, and then drive back home to the Houston area tomorrow while I continued on…

Mini-Points Updates (Chicago Seminars, Great Club Carlson Promo, Amazon Points, and more…)

Tonight’s post is playing catch-up with lots of different things going on in the miles and points community.  I actually love it when there is too much going on to pick any one topic – it means things are “exciting”.  At least for points/travel junkies like me…. Okay, here is what caught my attention today.  First, the official host hotel for the Chicago Seminars, Holiday Inn Elk Grove Village, is now open for booking.  The Chicago Seminars run from October 12…
