Demise of Target REDcard, SPG Targeted Offer, Amazon Prime Inflight on JetBlue, Sexiest Nationalities & More- The Rehash!


Overall it’s been a relatively quiet week around here in the world of travel, miles & points.

I didn’t get much done in terms of planning a couple of upcoming trips. However, I did pick up 15,000 Club Carlson points by calling in to customer service for my personal and business credit cards to complain about the loss of the 2nd night free benefit. This certainly won’t make up for the second night free perk going away but I’ll take it. Now I have to get Kim to call in for her card.

And now its time to take a look back at some of this past week’s posts in a recap that I like to call The Rehash!

I can’t believe that after loading my Target REDcard for the second time in Atlanta, it would also be my last time doing so with a credit card. I’m now wondering- with Target REDcard’s demise, what’s next?

Did you receive the targeted offer to earn 7,500 SPG Starpoints?

For those of you with Amazon Prime accounts, here is a nice added benefit. Amazon Prime is becoming JetBlue’s new inflight entertainment option.

Cuba is probably at or near the top of my list of places to go so this was some very interesting news. JetBlue to offer direct NY – Cuba flights.

United being sued due to no DIRECTV on flight. If you ask me, the airline should just have to give out a refund. Case closed.

NYU student arrested entering North Korea. And now I’ve read that he wanted to get caught! Strange…

One of my favorite fast food burger joints, Shake Shack is offering $2 shakes for a great cause. I bought a stack of the shake coupons a couple of days back.

Are these the Sexiest nationalities in the world?

It’s Uber to the rescue in NYC once again- NYC L train shutdown, UberPool lowers its prices to $2.75.

This was just crazy and hard to imagine… A boy was smuggled into Spain in a suitcase.

I hope that everyone had a Happy Mother’s Day! Hopefully some of you got to take advantage of OpenTable’s offer to save $20 when paying through the app. The offer expires today, May 10 at 11:59 pm PT.
