I hope that everyone has had a nice Spring Break and happy holidays for those celebrating Passover and Easter.
The Michael W Travels family has enjoyed an awesome visit to South Korea. This was baby Theo’s first trip to Asia! Sadly, our trip has come to an end and we fly home today… Continue reading Family Gets $11,000 for Giving Up Plane Seats, Bonus Wyndham Points, Bourdain Market Probs, AA- Cadillac Driving Event, United Airlines Troubles, & More- The Rehash!
The Michael W Travels family is currently exploring South Korea!
Our flight with United from Newark to Beijing was pretty comfortable. For the next leg we flew with Asiana to Seoul. We’re all feeling jet lag to different degrees but dealing with it pretty well.
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!

Next weekend we’re off to Asia for our next family adventure over Spring Break.
We’re still putting the finishing touches on our plans but it’s just about done. I was glad that adding Theo as a lap baby went smoothly (we booked the flight before he was born). We won’t have any need to lawyer up this time…
I closed one card this week and am finishing up the minimum spend on my newest credit card. I’m debating about what card I should apply for next.

Yesterday I visited three Staples stores in hopes of finding Hotels.com gift cards. There’s currently a nice promo where you can buy Hotels.com GCs at a 20% discount– $50 cards are selling for $40!
The third time was the charm! I finally found some Hotels.com gift cards. I ended up buying $300 worth for $240. Sounds like a deal to me. (I’m now debating whether or not I want to buy more before the offer expires.)

It’s been a productive week for us here at Michael W Travels.
Kim and I were able to use our IHG Anniversary Free Nights for our upcoming Asia trip. The nice thing is that I’ll have another free night coming my way in May.
My new Citi American Airlines Business card arrived and I’m working on hitting the minimum spend. I’m hoping to find another solid offer soon after I earn the 50,000 miles bonus. It’s tough to find new cards to apply for with all of the rules these days… Continue reading Summer Travel Deals, Win A Stay at Guinness Storehouse, $166K Left in Overhead, Amazing Race, Theo’s 6 Month Travel Update & More- The Rehash
With an impending snowstorm on the way, we found out earlier today that schools would be closed here in NYC! This will be a good opportunity for Kim and I to work on the plans for our Spring Break trip which is a little over three weeks away.
I was happy to get approved for my first new credit card of 2017. No, it wasn’t a card with a 100,000 miles bonus offer but I’ll take 50,000 more American Airlines miles. (Although it’s been extremely hard to redeem the AA miles I already have.)

Over the weekend the Michael W Travels Family took a very short trip to Buffalo, NY. It was freezing out but still a fun and interesting trip.
We’re closing in on our Spring Break trip which is just a little over one month away. It’s definitely time for Kim and I to get into serious planning mode!

The Michael W Travels Family recently got back from a quick visit to Ireland. We had a great time during our trip and would definitely like to head back in the future.
Next weekend we’ll be going on a very brief trip mainly in the name of food. We’ll be flying on JetBlue which Lucas is definitely excited for.

The Michael W Travels family headed off on our first international trip of 2017 and it’s been a lot of fun so far. We’re currently on a short visit to Ireland!
We flew to Europe on Iberia and I was a bit surprised by a few things about the airline. It was our first time flying with them and we were disappointed to learn that AA Gold status couldn’t even get us free seat selection. We also found the seats to be extremely uncomfortable, almost claustrophobic. The one good thing we encountered was a tasty meal! How have your experiences been with Iberia?
