IHG dropped the hammer on several dozen properties that apparently weren’t living up to the company’s standards.

Plus, a company is hiring someone to review luxury Las Vegas resorts and casinos. Feeling lucky?

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

MGM Resorts and American Express teamed up for a couple of new Amex Offers.

Just in time for Amazon Prime Day — which is rumored to be sometime within the next 7 or 8 weeks — American Express rolled out two welcome offers for its Blue Cash cards and new cardholders can receive 20% back on Amazon purchases!

A recent trip gave me the opportunity to visit the new American Express Centurion Lounge at LAX.

Several readers contacted us for help using Delta.com to find confirmed upgrade availability. The feature is relatively new and a few more people are probably curious about how the process works. So we walked through the steps.

Delta Air Lines is making huge improvements to its LAX operations. But things are kind of a mess until then. Here are a few things you should know.

Meanwhile, Delta may have some big changes in the works for Seattle.

We blogged a couple of big mileage runs to Madrid: one from Chicago and a blockbuster package from New York.

A woman gave birth during a Delta flight to Hawaii.

Cheers! Here’s a review of the new Old Fashioneds Delta now serves!

Skift reports that IHG cut ties with about 60 hotels last year. They write, “eliminating the bad eggs with lower customer service ratings boosts the respective brand profiles, especially at a time when IHG wants to sign more franchise deals with owners of existing hotels.” I’m curious exactly which properties got 86ed.
