It was a busy week on the blog filled with great reader comments — thank you!
Here’s the week that was here at Rene’s Points:
A lot of readers pleaded guilty to accepting Delta’s first class monetization offers. (Send me a drink from the cushy seats when I’m stuck in coach, will ya? 😉 )
Speaking of hotels, René gave us a great review of the IHG InterContinental San Juan.
Cost is a reason many people are foregoing vacations altogether. Are you one of them?
On the topic of money — and MQD — we added two runs this week to Guatemala City: one from SFO and another from JFK! (Make sure to follow @EliteMileageRun on Twitter and subscribe to our mileage run emails!)
The Delta credit cards seem to have an underwhelming effect on many people. We discussed how Delta and Amex could improve the most expensive card, the Delta Reserve.
While we’re talking about American Express, there’s a big Amex Offer for Air France. Here’s why Rene’s Points readers should add it. Plus, monthly card benefits renewed for cardholders of two Amex products.
Did you take advantage of the ledge (that’s British slang for “legendary” 😉 ) SkyMiles sale to Great Britain?
Finally, a big welcome to all the new readers who learned about Rene’s Points from my guest-hosting gig on CRN Digital Talk Radio’s What’s Cookin’ Today show this weekend! We talked travel credit cards, some good credit practices, and cash back portals.
