I really thought we were done with 2020-ish stories. You know, things like UFOs. Or “bushmeat” (compromised of several different types of organisms) being impounded at airports.

But after this past week, I’m convinced this really just the 54th week of 2020.

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

Delta announced a partnership with satellite broadband provider Viasat for inflight Wi-Fi services.

A former Secret Service agent appeared to make a puzzling comment about Delta flight attendants — but it’s not what it seems.

Delta is selling 747s — on eBay. And in pieces. Meanwhile, Amazon bought some 767s from Delta — but I assume those were still working and all in one piece.

Delta Air Lines decreed that certain “pit bull type dogs” will be allowed on its aircraft again — while also banning emotional support animals.

PayPal Digital Gifts ran a sale on Southwest gift cards.

People sometimes ask us “Which card is better? The consumer/personal Delta SkyMiles Platinum American Express Card or Delta SkyMiles Platinum Business American Express Card? How are they different?” So we created this post.

Here’s my overall plan for earning points this year.

An Instacart Amex Offer dropped Monday for certain Platinum and Centurion cardholders, giving them the opportunity to save up to $100!

The business Platinum card, meanwhile, offered five 5X categories as part of Amex Offers.
