The latest episode of our podcast is out once again and I figured it was probably worth sharing that and some of the other stories which made headlines over there recently.
So, who is to blame when a deal dies? That debate is all the rage these days and it seems that the discussions quickly lead to rage, at least amongst some participants. There’s money to be made – LOTS of money – from credit card sign-ups and many bloggers are big in that space these days. But are they to blame for deals ending abruptly? After all, if they kill a deal then they stop making money because the deal they’re “selling” is dead. It is an interesting situation and one that we take a rather calmer approach to discussing.
Also of interest (I think):
- Singapore Airlines Suites can now be booked at saver levels, at least according to their award chart: Booking a Singapore Suite with points
- A 50% bonus on buying miles from American Airlines through the end of the year. Still just an OK deal but the richest bonus they’ve had this year as far as I can recall: Up to 50% bonus when buying AAdvantage points through the end of 2012
- Bonus US Airways Dividend Miles for multiple car rental and hotel stays through the end of the year: Bonus US Airways miles for hotel stays & car rentals
