Japan is (politely, of course) asking roller coaster riders to refrain from screaming.

Plus, the Maldives might become even spendier to visit.

We’ll get to those headlines — and many more — in a few minutes. But first, here’s a quick recap of this week at Rene’s Points!

Chase added some great statement credit redemptions to its Sapphire products. And don’t forget that a Kindle and Kindle Unlimited offer expires on Sunday.

Delta and American are preparing for some pretty big layoffs. Meanwhile, Delta extended its change fee waiver through June 30.

Delta temporarily suspended service to 11 more airports.

Comfort+ upgrades were paused for social distancing purposes — but Delta is apparently still selling entire cabins of C+.

Did you see Rene’s blogging and Zooming rig? Holy moly.

Happy Student gift cards are on sale ($30 for $25) at Gift Card Mall (plus cashback!).

I’m optimistic about next year — and think it could be very busy, travel-wise.

The Internet went crazy this week about reports Japan would pay up to half of tourists’ costs if they visited the Land of the Rising Sun. Well, that’s not exactly true.

But you know who is ponying up for some travelers? A Vegas casino — which bought a bunch of plane tickets for people to head to Sin City.
