News and notes from around the interweb:
- 20% off Etihad economy tickets and 30% off business class
- The new Ultamate Rewards credit card program isn’t exactly earning the valuable points you get from the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card and like blog pfdigest I’m surprised Chase’s lawyers aren’t shutting this down.
- Here are the secret United award booking tricks you can still do until rules change October 6.
- New Hyatt mobile app
Use Facebook Messenger or Twitter (or text message at participating properties) to directly get in touch with Hyatt.
· Make on-demand requests at approximately 60 hotels – with many more on the way – which means you can ask for things like a toothbrush, towel or shampoo to be quickly delivered directly to your room.
· Expedite your arrival and departure experience with Online Check-in and Express Checkout.
- Air traffic control reform failed despite a $15 million lobbying effort
- I have an offer in my Amex account that I can add to my Platinum card of $80 off a $500 or more prepaid hotel booking at AmexTravel.com. That’s pretty good, but I’m unlikely to use it. I’m jealous of reader Victor A. who shares an offer in his account that I don’t have: $50 statement credit for any airfare purchase of $300 or more. Check your American Express account for current offers!
