How is it already (almost) Halloween?! Have you been as busy as we are here at Rene’s Points?

Here’s a quick recap of the week that was:

René officially kicked it off by detailing his top 10 list of Most Irritating Things People Do While Flying. Plenty of readers added their frustrations, too!

We found a huge mileage run from JFK to Sydney — yielding enough MQD for Delta Platinum Medallion status.

Delta Vacations now allows regional and global upgrade certificates on its itineraries.

How would you feel about fireworks all around your plane — while pilots take pictures of the action during short final?

In case you missed the post  — or might still be interested — these Utaxo Bluetooth Noise-Canceling Earphones are on sale over 30% off.

Delta and Ticketmaster teamed up to offer 5X SkyMiles on ticket purchases. Although the deal is now dead, keep in mind that Ticketmaster and many other ticket sellers participate in TopCashback, Rakuten, and Be Frugal.

I enjoyed my first stay at the Hyatt Regency Chicago O’Hare. Here’s my review of the property.

Don’t forget the big Delta Amex offers expiring Wednesday. This week, we examined a few more benefits: “No status” upgrades and Centurion Lounge access for Reserve cardholders.

New Credit Card Deals

Several new credit offers were issued this week:

Los Angeles, California - April 18, 2014: A Delta Air Lines Boeing 757-200 with the registration N655DL takes off from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in California.
