I finally finished booking all of the flights we’ll need for our summer trip to the Pacific. We’ll be doing a lot of flying to get to some awesome destinations. Next up- starting to book our hotels.
I recently got a new credit card and I’m already thinking about what to get next. I’m debating whether or not its time to finally get the Hyatt card before the two free nights at any property sign up offer goes away… Continue reading Baby To Fly FREE For Life, Call To Fiji Air Saves Me Over $600, Is Flying Killing You, 1.8 Million AA Miles Giveaway, McD’s Mac ‘N Cheese Sandwich & More- The Rehash!
With the annual fee soon coming up on my American Express Platinum card, I decided to apply for the Amex Blue Business card (which I was instantly approved for). The signup bonus isn’t huge but it buys me some time to decide what to do with my Membership Rewards points.
Planning for our summer trip wasn’t looking good but then I started finding award availability for various flights around the region we’ll be visiting. It’s been frustrating using American Airlines miles over the past year or so but for this trip, they seem to be coming up big!

It finally feels like summer here in NYC. Over the weekend we were quite busy heading to some parks and checking out some new (to us) restaurants. We found a new place to go for an awesome burger as well as another great place to go for pizza. Win win…
Otherwise, I’m considering getting the Marriott Business credit card since I received a direct mailer. I’m not sure if the card falls under Chase’s 5/24 rule. Do you know?

It’s been a slow week here when it comes to miles, points and travel. (I might still be coming down from the high of booking our flights to the South Pacific with AA miles for this summer.)
I finished the minimum spend on my newest credit card and am working on finishing the spend on a bonus for another card. Once this is done, I’ll be on the hunt for a new card. What will it be? Who knows!

I was close to giving up on the idea I had for our summer trip due to a lack of American Airlines award availability. (Maybe it wasn’t really their fault this time…)
However, I kept checking and was able to get award flights for us to the South Pacific! We need to do a lot of planning for our trip, which will be a little over a month long but we’re definitely excited!

The summer is fast approaching and I’ve been thinking a lot about what the Michael W Travels family will do (and more importantly, where we will go).
One of the main parts of a successful summer trip for us, is using some of our stockpile of American Airlines miles. I had no luck for a few weeks but never gave up trying. I now have a flight on hold which will get us to a region Kim and I have wanted to return to for some time now.

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…

The ideas are flowing around here for summer travel plans although we’ve yet to commit to anything. Will you be traveling this summer? If so, where are you going?
I got approved for the Alaska Airlines credit card. This will be an easy 30,000 miles plus a $100 statement credit. Once I’m done with that card maybe I’ll go for the US Bank Altitude Reserve…

We’re hopefully going to take our longest trip to date, to a region we haven’t visited in quite some time. I’m crossing my fingers that I can find an award flight with my AA miles.

The day after we got back from South Korea I booked us a flight to Europe for next February. The deals being offered on an almost daily basis are just so hard to pass up!
I’m just about done with the spend on my newest credit card so I need to find a new one to apply for. With all of the talk of the upcoming US Bank Altitude Reserve, that could be my next target!
