We had a pretty big week here at Rene’s Points!
I hope you like the site’s new look! As I mentioned in the post announcing the theme refresh, we’ll make some tweaks here and there. Thanks to those of you who commented and added suggestions!
We kicked off the week by discussing credit cards giving members free access to airport lounges. I also asked readers if Delta and Amex should rebrand/rename the SkyMiles credit cards in order to prevent confusion.
A few people are now swearing off onboard drinks and food after learning Delta didn’t fare well in a study of airline water quality. We also enjoyed a discussion about tipping airport shuttle drivers. Please weight in if you haven’t!
Did you see the four mileage runs we posted this week?
- Philadelphia (PHL) to Tokyo
- Burbank (BUR) to London Heathrow (LHR)
- Boston (BOS) to Manila (MNL)
- Las Vegas (LAS) to Quito (UIO)
And if you want a custom-made mileage run, we know people who can help.
Points, Sales, and Miles!
Rene wrote about a killer deal involving a transatlantic cruise. Very nice!!
Delta announced a fare special for a few dozen cities, with Basic Economy starting as low as $97.
A couple of American Express specials popped up this week, too. If you hold the American Express Gold Card (learn more and compare to other cards), check your email for an offer to receive up to 20,000 Membership Rewards points when you add authorized users.
We wrote about two Delta Amex Offers that arrived Friday. Were you targeted?
Finally, we’re only four weeks away from the Chicago Seminars! I hope to see you there!
