Last week I spent most of the week floating around the Bahamas on my first Royal Caribbean cruise (I have been on NCL in the past but NEVER again). I will have lots more and my review of my thoughts on the “Enchantment of the Seas®” but for now I want to catch up on all the “stuff” I missed out on and you may have missed as well.
The first one is discounted Skymiles award tickets to many places south of the boarder (hurry you have to book before tomorrow the 23rd). Clearly avoid the “standard” awards as we look for SAVER awards – otherwise you are just getting a discount on over priced awards! 😉
Next we have some more Hertz perks for most (targeted) medallions the best for Diamonds. Meh. Sure free perks are nice and I do tend to rent with Hertz most often but I am under – impressed with almost all rental car companies nowadays. The really sad thing is Delta, with Skymiles2015 is trying to race to the bottom with them. #NotWinning!
It seems the sweet deal to get VDGCs and MCDGCs at OM is back until the 27th of this month. This is good news but I think most of the $200 ones will be gone when I go looking for them today (best deal is 2x$200). But I will try to buy a few grand and dump them to BB after the 1st of the month as I have already loaded and unloaded my and Lisa’s cards this month.
We also all should have got notice from BB that VRs loading to BB will end 1APRIL15. Sad, but since being able to buy these with a credit card has become rarer than the spotted Dodo bird, it is less of a shocker than it would have been a year or so back. Another meh moment. Now if DGCs ever dry up – that will be a really sad day!
So these are the bits that caught my attention as I pour through a few thousand e-mails and a week worth of tweets I have missed out on (sorry if I did not get back to you or missed you – feel free to email me again if need be)! I have lots more up this week as I am going to spend much of my day looking for some last good DeltaMileageRuns before year end to post about (if I can find any) and have a post up soon about how I plan to earn my Skymiles next year since we all clearly know that flying Delta will be the worst way possible to earn Skymiles next year!- René
