Preview & Photos: New Delta Sky Club in Seattle

With over 130 departures daily, Delta currently operates flights out of the concourses A, B, and S at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the media preview event… Read More

HOW Many AMEX Cards Do I Have?!

American Express is all around my favourite bank: they have a wide variety of different credit and charge cards, the benefits on each card are compelling, sign-up bonuses are generous, and AMEX Membership Rewards points transfer to many airlines. I personally value Membership Rewards points more than Chase Ultimate Rewards points for two simple reasons: 1) AMEX has way more transfer partners and 2) AMEX… Read More

Why I’m #StarwoodProud

It was announced last year that Marriott was planning to purchase Starwood and the two hotel chains would merge into one. There was some speculation about whether or not the merger would take place after a few events, but ultimately Starwood is now merged into Marriott as of a few weeks ago. This means change. While SPG and the Starwood brand is now a part… Read More

AMEX Platinum Card: earn 5x points on Airfare!

American Express was one of the first banks (if not the first) to introduce a premium travel card years ago with many benefits and a high annual fee. The AMEX Platinum Card has been widely regarded as one of the best travel cards in the past.. however recently, other banks (such as Chase and Citi) have been attracting customers to their new(er) premium travel cards. We… Read More


One More Year of University… then what?

Last Wednesday was my official last “first” day of uni.. that’s right, I’ve only got one more year of university left. And I couldn’t be more excited about that – not really because I don’t like my uni (I love it), but rather because I’m excited to begin a new journey in life and to finally *start* my life. I currently live a little over… Read More


Chase Sapphire Reserve: “Are you sure you want to upgrade?”

The Chase Sapphire Reserve was launched late summer and has been a hit in the travel and miles/points world… with people under 5/24.. or those that maintain $250k+ USD with Chase, that is. Even though I don’t like Chase as much as AMEX (not that many transfer partners and also the ridiculous 5/24 rule), I still upgraded my Sapphire Preferred to the Sapphire Reserve… mainly for… Read More


When United Can’t Refund Correctly…

I need to rant. I’ve just about had it with United and their refunds department (oh, and perhaps their horrible computer system which can never process anything correctly). Let me explain. As you all know, I have an award booking service, and one of my clients needed to change his award ticket for travel out of a different city. Ok, no problem. I changed the… Read More
