[Extended through 3/25] Frontier offering $50 bonus for cancelling

Update 3/25/20: This offer has been extended through today, March 25, 2020. You must cancel by 11:59pm Mountain Time. I didn’t notice if they also extended it by one day yesterday — perhaps they will continuously extend it by a day or two at a time to keep encouraging people to take action sooner rather than later. Frontier Airlines has an interesting offer for those willing to proactively cancel upcoming travel: If you cancel by 11:59pm…

If you’re stuck at home looking for a way to spend…

Premium routes with wide open awards

UPDATE 3/20/20: I’ve added Qatar flights from North America to the list. Business class awards are wide open in January and February 2021!  I’ve also added United flights to Israel which are wide open this summer through September.  San Francisco to Tel Aviv via United is wide open in January and Feb 2021. One of the many weird things about life under COVID-19, for me, is that I don’t have any travel plans.  I can’t…

On my mind: Coronavirus, points and miles

Last weekend, I presented at the Travel & Adventure Show in Washington DC and Nick presented at FTU (Frequent Traveler University).  Going into the weekend I was surprised that the show and the FTU conference hadn’t been cancelled.  After all, thanks to the Coronavirus, conferences were being cancelled left and right around the nation.  Even South by Southwest was cancelled. I figured that FTU would have decent attendance since people had paid up to $129,…
