In 2012 when Singapore started allowing people to redeem miles for the A380 couple’s suite I booked us tickets to Paris just 2 days before departure. It was our 2nd visit to the city of lights, but we enjoyed it so much the first time that we had to go back again. We spent 2 nights at the Park Hyatt there and enjoyed the city in the quieter winter season. In 2013 when BA had a glitch that allowed us to fly to Buenos Aires in first class for 0 miles we dropped Rafi off at my parents and were on a plane within just 2 hours of booking tickets! We only spent a single night in Buenos Aires, much to the shock of the … [Read more...] about Trip Notes Rome: Veni, Vidi, Vici In 48 Hours; United Polaris First Class And Polaris Lounge Review

Hundreds of frequent flyer enthusiasts from forums like Flyertalk and Milepoint get together and fly around the world together and meet with various airline and hotel executives. Star of course refers to Star Alliance. A DO (pronounced like the word do or due) is simply a get-together while a MegaDo is a really big get together. Space to attend these events is always quite limited and there is a cost from $1,000 up to $5,000 depending on how much of the event you want to attend (domestic or international+domestic) and what class you’ll be sitting in on the plane. Participants were treated to flying a brand new United 787 Dreamliner among many other goodies. I was invited to attend the United portion of the DO in Chicago for free so that’s what I’ll talk about. … [Read more...] about Trip Report: United DO 2012 In Chicago

This is a long trip report but my philosophy on trip reports is to write everything on a destination in one shot as opposed to dragging it out into dozens of annoying installments. I’m always open to suggestions and criticisms though, so sound off in the comments. Posts like these take days to write so your feedback is appreciated! It’s not much of a secret that I have a bit of a love affair with the Hawaiian islands. $87 was the cost for my hotel and airfare on my first trip in 2006. I’ve been back 5 times since. In this post I’ve included activities and pictures from 5 trips to Kauai. Why go back to the same place so many times? I’ve been lucky enough to travel to many far-flung corners of the world but there’s no place where I’m in as good of a place of mind as Hawaii. The air is … [Read more...] about Trip Notes Kauai: Heaven On Earth

Sound off in the comments! Last week I made a post with a chart comparing the Chase Sapphire Preferred and the Chase Sapphire Reserve. Here are the results of the poll at the end of that post: Let’s get back to that poll later in the post… The great thing about Chase Ultimate Rewards is how versatile and valuable they are: If I want to stay in a 5 star Park Hyatt in the Maldives, Melbourne, NYC, Paris, Sydney, or Tokyo that would cost over $1,000/night, I can instantly transfer 25-30K points to Hyatt to do that, a value of up to 6 cents per point. If I need a last minute flight from Cleveland (or Chicago, Detroit, Miami, Montreal, Orlando, Pittsburgh, Toronto, etc) to NYC that can cost $500 each way, I can instantly transfer 7.5K points to British Airways to book a … [Read more...] about All About The Chase Quadfecta; At Least 23% Of You Aren’t Doing This Right…But You Should Be!

We arrived in Singapore from the Maldives on Friday morning. Thanks to the ghetto upgrade (lie-flat seating in coach thanks to an empty row of 4 seats in the middle of the Singapore A330) we were ready and raring to go. Living on the edge. I had already done my research thanks to the Singapore thread on DDF as well as the Lonely Planet Singapore guidebook. Taxis in Singapore are relatively inexpensive, though pricing rules are complicated with higher fees depending on the time of day. There is a 25% surcharge over the meter for trips starting 6am-9:30am and from … [Read more...] about Trip Notes: 2 Nights In Singapore And Back Home On A Korean A380
