United waiving redeposit fees for cancelled flights

Over the past couple of days, we have seen several reports in our Frequent Miler Insiders Facebook group indicating that United is now waiving award redeposit fees on cancelled flights. To be clear, to my knowledge this is only on flights that have been cancelled by the airline, but it’s better than being told that you need to pay. United has been pretty awful in terms of its response to customers over the current pandemic.…

On my mind: Is now a good time to apply for credit cards? Really?

I’ve written a fair bit recently about applying for rewards credit cards.  The general idea has been that while this is a bad time for traveling, it’s a great time for earning points, miles, and cash back from home.  But, is that really true?

IHG extending free night certs by request. Hopefully they do better.
