Assembling a cheap award to paradise

The old $49 per year IHG credit card is no longer available to new applicants.  Worse, it no longer offers an uncapped free night each year.  Today, just like the IHG Premier card, it offers a free night at any property costing up to 40,000 points.  Across three different family accounts, though, I had 3 remaining uncapped free night certificates.  These legacy certificates can be used at any IHG hotel worldwide based upon availability. Our…

It’s too early to say how this will be implemented, but one could guess that it’ll at least apply at the new North…

Doing Disney off-property? Magic Village is a great property.

Last week, I spent a few days at the House of the Mouse. I made what used to be a fantastic redemption with Wyndham Rewards points. It isn’t a very good value on points any more (though it may not be terrible if you’re flush with Wyndham points). However, it is still a potentially excellent deal if you’re paying cash and looking for all the comforts of home on a trip to Disney where staying on-property…
