Just one 2019 weekend remains after this. Where has the year gone? Heck, where did this week go? In case you missed anything on the blog the past seven days, here’s a quick recap:

On the topic of next year, will Delta flight attendants see changes in their uniforms this coming summer?

René recently returned from a trip. He experienced something that never happened to him prior to that. Find out what it was. Has this happened to you?

He also gave us a recap of Delta Investors Day (from a frequent flyer’s perspective).

Delta redesigned its Certificates, eCredits, or Delta Gift Cards page. But there are a few glitches. Delta’s website and app also experienced problems earlier this week but it seems those are now remedied.

Buying gift cards as a last-minute gift for anyone? Make sure you use a credit (or charge) card that gives you the best points or cash back earnings!

If you’re traveling during the holiday, here’s a way you can save money on cocktails at resorts!

Are you worried about being watched in your hotel room or Airbnb?

Keep in mind flights are going to be ffffuuulllll during the next couple of weeks — which can work to your advantage if you’re willing to volunteer for a later flight!

Delta flyers love MQM. Would you pony up for Comfort+ tickets if they rewarded you bonus MQM?

Do you have a portable charger or external battery? Anker has a great one discounted by 44% (as of post time) — and it’s strong enough to keep your laptop (with USB-C connection) going!

Air France currently has gift cards on sale. This is a good option for Delta travelers who book tickets through Air France — or just want to travel on AF.

Speaking of credit cards, several readers asked our opinion about downgrading American Express Platinum cards to American Express Gold Cards. Here’s our advice.

Uber — and possibly Lyft — are bailing out of PHX after the city enacted fee hikes on ridesharing companies.

Did you see the footage of two Carnival cruise ships colliding in Mexico? Yikes.

Mileage run-wise, we blogged a couple of decent runs: a Vegas to Tokyo Haneda run in Premium Select and a Chicago to Barcelona vacation trip.
