News and notes from around the interweb:
- Wandering Aramean details a new top elite tier in the
Greyhound Road RewardsAmtrak Guest Rewards program that seems pretty good for upgrades and bonus points (if you spend about $10,000 or take 40 one-way Acela trips in a year).
- I shouldn’t make fun of the Amtrak program, I id receive all those Hyatt gift cards from converting my Priority Club points after all.
- Delta Points says the Air France website now recognizes Delta trip confirmation numbers, which can be mildly useful for seat assignments. I suppose it was easier to update Air France’s technology than for Delta to just display corresponding Air France record locators online, or to train Delta telephone agents that Air France is a partner. He suggests adding Delta flights to a Flying Blue account so that Award Wallet can track your trips.
- One Mile at a Time flags that American is offering up to a 40% bonus on purchased miles through January 31. Not as good as the end of year 50% bonus of course, but it appears what was then a temproary lifting of the 40,000 mile per year purchase limit to 60,000 per year has become a permanent feature of the program.
