Ben was on a tear yesterday:

    I was thinking the same thing!

    “The most prolific day in the history of travel blogging” came to mind…

    Only 3? What? You mean his search for odd hotel photos didn’t get your juices flowing too? ;)

  3. Ozaer N. said,

    The news about Alaska charging for checked bags for non-elites is a bummer. They must’ve hired someone from Spirit or RyanAir in their marketing department.

  4. DavidB said,

    I applied for this and was accepted, but noticed afterwards that the T & C said that you won’t get the mileage bonus if you previously have had a Marriott Rewards Chase card. We’ll see what happens.

  5. lucky said,

    Psssh, I’m offended! You left out my best one. ;)

    Just kidding, thanks Gary!

  6. Gary said,

    @lucky well i rather AGREE with you on the other one, but it wasn’t especially useful, novel, or deep ;)

    The BA Avios to Iberia Avios transfer is a brilliant piece of miles engineering! I’m planning on going to Spain to see the running of the banks. Have to be careful as I hear you can get trampled easily.

  8. Mark The Shark said,

    Nice post! I really liked the transfer to Iberia idea. I’m on the fence about the Ritz card. Do you think Marriott Gold status will status match to Hyatt diamond?

  9. Gary said,

    @Mark The Shark you will only get a Hyatt Diamond challenge, and to do that they may want to see a stay history also. But if matched for the challenge you at least get the confirmed suite upgrades
