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.
PointsHoarder 16: We killed that deal discussion!
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

I loved this episode! I don’t get all worked up about deals coming and going myself, but it was really interesting to hear about the business side of travel hacking blogs.
Definitely loved the open discussion about deal killing/sharing/oversharing. It is truly never ending.
you guys nailed it with this episode. well done
I listened to the podcast from the singapore lounge. I was disappointed that you guys didn’t detail the cpm or tricks used to book the mile run. As an aspiring churner, frequent traveler myself, I would like to learn from the experts. I love the podcast. Keep up the good work.
This was a great episode. Kudos seth!
