Wyndham Rewards isn’t a hotel program that I know a ton about but it’s quite interesting in that a free night at any of their hotels costs 15,000 points. This could certainly be a great value or be a pretty bad one…
Since getting the Wyndham credit card, I completed an offer to earn 10000 bonus points. I’m still waiting for my bonus points to post but considering it gets me 2/3 to another free night, I had to go for it.
Yesterday I received an e-mail from Starwood Preferred Guest about a way to earn 2,500 bonus Starpoints with SPG Keyless.
For those of you unsure of SPG Keyless, here is some info. With Keyless, once you register your mobile phone, if you’re upcoming stay is eligible, you’ll get a push notification where you can opt-in to go keyless. When you’re room is ready, you’ll receive another push notification with your room number and you should be able to open your door! Continue reading 2,500 Bonus Starpoints with SPG Keyless→
Lufthansa is currently running a sweepstakes where one lucky winner will win two round-trip tickets to India!
India has long been a desintation that I’ve wanted to visit so I’d love to win this prize. The only problem is that I’d need to get one more ticket so Kim, Lucas and I could visit the country together!
On October 22 I booked a long weekend for Kim, Lucas and I to Toronto using British Airways Avios. At just 4,500 Avios (points) each way from NYC this was definitely a bargain (although the cost will be going up soon to 7,500).
I searched at BA.com and found the flights I needed (out of JFK Airport) but I wasn’t able to book online due to issues with the flight home on TAM. I called in to take care of the issue which led to a 40 minute + call to get things sorted out. BA also had to call me back two times since it took so long!
Kim, Lucas and I are currently traveling home from what’s been possibly our most frustrating trip ever! What should’ve been a quick hour and five-minute flight to Toronto became a cancelled flight, hours of waiting and another cancelled flight. We then had to fly the following morning which became early afternoon with more delays, giving us just a day and a half at our destination!
I guess weather happens but with just a light drizzle in the NYC area and poor communication with passengers, this led to lots of unhappy tavelers!
It’s been a crazy past couple of days filled with lots of flight delays and flight cancellations. Luckily our one checked bag was spotted by Lucas after our flights were cancelled on Thursday night. You see, our bag was so wet that Kim and I didn’t even recognize it.. But Lucas did!
