News and notes from around the interweb:
- Back in March Alitalia was offering up to 6000 miles for joining. That offer is offer, but Jim N. points out that there’s still 2000 miles on offer just for signing up.
- Your tips about Fresno, California as an “underrate, overtraveled” destination could win you a prize pack from National Car Rental. This has likely the fewest entries of any contest I’ve run in the past years. Gee, I wonder why…? But it also means there isn’t as much competition to win!
- I’m honored to again be included in Conde’ Nast Traveler’s World’s Top Travel Specialists for my award booking service. They even have a page detailing the recommendation. My partner Steve and I have booked hundreds of millions of miles worth of premium cabin international awards at the low level (I should really go back and calculate because it’s probably well over a billion by now…).
- Free Langham Hotels Voyager status.
- 1500 bonus Hyatt Gold Passport points for stays at 5 New York hotels through August 31.
