Rehash

It’s been a slow week around here when it comes to miles, points and travel.

I’m currently working on finishing off the minimum spend on my newest credit card. Also, if time permits, I’ll be calling American Airlines this week to see if I can figure out some award flights for this summer. Stay tuned…

How has your week gone when it comes to miles, points and travel? Now it’s time to take a look back at some of this past week’s posts in a recap that I like to call, The Rehash!

Rapper Bow Wow Instagrams Private Jet Photo, Flies Commercial

bow wow

If you fly commercial why would you post a photo insinuating that you’re flying on a private plane? Appearance, image, trying to show off- who knows…

Rapper Bow Wow posted a photo to Instagram earlier in the week showing a private jet with the caption “traveling to NY today“. Based on the Post, its safe to say that he was implying that he flew on the private plane. Continue reading Rapper Bow Wow Instagrams Private Jet Photo, Flies Commercial

Another Chance To Win A Lufthansa First Class Duck!

Lufthansa First Class Ducks are highly collectible yet hard to come by as they can only be acquired at the First Class Lounge & Terminal. You could also purchase them on sites like eBay or beg a friend to give you one I suppose!

Every week @Lufthansa_FCT (on Twitter) runs a contest, giving away a duck to one lucky winner. Continue reading Another Chance To Win A Lufthansa First Class Duck!

Woman Suing Hotel For Getting Pregnant From Affair

Hotel
Not the hotel from the woman’s stay…

This has got to be one of the odder stories I’ve come across in quite some time…

A woman is suing a hotel in Halle, Germany due to a three-night stay from back in 2010. She had an affair with a man, only knowing his first name- Michael.

Then, nine- months later she had a son, “who she believes was the result of the encounter,” according to T+L. Continue reading Woman Suing Hotel For Getting Pregnant From Affair

Pass on the Steak, Head to Peter Luger For Their Amazing Burger

IMG_0379

OK, so if you’re making a special trip to Peter Luger, I know you’ll most likely want to try their famous steak (and I don’t blame you) but hear me out on this one…

Peter Luger is considered by many to be the best steakhouse in New York City. If you want to get in, odds are pretty high that you’ll need a reservation which needs to be made a month in advance.

I’ve had steak at Peter Luger and it is really good but it’s also really pricey. If you ask me, a better option for visiting this historic restaurant is to head over during the day to give their awesome burger (available until 3:45pm) a try.

United Airlines Cancels Passenger’s Reservation, Filmed Disagreement

United Airlines

United Airlines has had a tough past couple of months with frequent bad customer service.

There was the ugly incident with the dentist, a scorpion stung a passenger on a flight and a couple flying to their destination was kicked off of a flight.

In the latest incident, a passenger is claiming that his reservation was cancelled by United Airlines for filming a disagreement. Continue reading United Airlines Cancels Passenger’s Reservation, Filmed Disagreement

Did I Get A Retention Offer for the JetBlue Barclaycard

Did You Close Amex Card In Hopes of Getting JetBlue Barclaycard Bonus?

In March of 2016 I was happy to get approved for the JetBlue Barclaycard.

I received the Plus version which gave me 30,000 points after spending $1,000 in the first 90 days. There are some perks that come with the card like free checked bags and 6 points per $1 spent on JetBlue. You also get 10% points back each time you redeem.

When the $99 annual fee posted I had a big decision to make- keep the card or close it. Continue reading Did I Get A Retention Offer for the JetBlue Barclaycard
