Never Miss Another Deal - Follow DansDeals on FacebookHyatt 2019 Annual Category Changes Most hotels chains reorganize their categories yearly to keep them current with the average rates that they charge. Hyatt hotels have no capacity controls on standard rooms. The good part about that is that if a major event is in town and rates are quadruple what they normally are, you can still use the regular amount of points as long as the hotel is not sold out of standard rooms. 130 hotels are going up in category while 129 hotels are going down in category this year. That’s a whole lot more fair than Marriott’s ridiculously lopsided 2019 changes. But there are still lots of pain points here. Book stays before 3/18 local hotel time to lock in current rates for future stays at hotels that are going up. You can book stays up to a year in advance. Almost all hotel stays are cancellable for free until a certain amount of time before the stay (read the fine print). … [Read more...] about Hyatt 2019 Annual Category Changes, Lock In Lower Rates And Anniversary Nights At Hotels Getting More Expensive Now!
Never Miss Another Deal - Follow DansDeals on FacebookUnited dropped the heartbreaking news on Friday afternoon that they will move MileagePlus from an award chart based redemption system to dynamically priced awards. Like a paid ticket, the price for the award will be whatever United says it is when you search for it. For now, partner award prices haven’t changed, but when Delta switched to this system 4 years ago they started devaluing those awards without any notice. Instead of being able to save up for an aspirational award with a fixed price, you’ll just have to hope you can find a sale. Some bloggers reported that the “bright side” of the news was that United will get rid of the $75 close-in fee for booking an award within 21 days. Sadly that is a fallacy. Many people were happy when Delta got rid of their close-in fee, but they more than made up for it by charging more miles for tickets within 3 weeks of travel. In other words because Delta … [Read more...] about This Is Why United’s Elimination Of Close-In Award Booking Fees Is Devastating News #UnitedUnfriendly #MileageMinus

He was born in July and I previously blogged about flying with him in September to Miami as a “dry-run” if you will, for a long-haul trip. The first couple months of Rafi’s life weren’t easy, he was very colicky and pretty much cried 24/7. A funny thing happened on that Miami trip though. He was quiet for the most part on the planes and he slept through the night for the … [Read more...] about Traveling To Hawaii…With A 5 Month Old!
