Did you know about the Hyatt family rate?

A reader commented on a post over the weekend with a piece of information that was news to me: Hyatt offers a family plan rate that includes up to 50% off a second room when you reserve a second room for children 18 years old or under.

A sweet spot and what to do with those Citi points

Welcome to this week’s Frequent Miler week in review around the web, where we recap some of the stories that caught our eye around the net. Enjoy! Get SPG Points on Broadway Shows While I can agree with Jon at No Mas Coach that earning Starpoints on Broadway tickets is better than not earning Starpoints on Broadway tickets, that logic only holds true if prices are constant. My initial reaction was that Audience Rewards would be a…

Huge hotel discount with T-Mobile Tuesday

Confirming suspicions and a nice surprise from Amex

We had confirmation this week of some things we have long suspected: the United Mileage Plus Lots of Fees prepaid debit card is launching and isn’t terribly useful (though maybe not useless), FlexPerks are going to move to a flat 1.5 cents per point across the board, and the fastest way to find hot deals might make you go cross-eyed, but it’s worth a look at times like Prime Day and Black Friday. But we also had…
