May is in the rainy season, and the Internet tells me that means that the islands that make up the Maldives therefore see an average of 15 days with some rainfall during the month, so it may not be the ideal time visit. On the other hand, if you’re willing to roll the dice, it’s certainly possible that you’ll see some…

Transfer Partner Master List

Amex Transfer Partners

In my opinion, transferable points programs are the most valuable points to accumulate.  These points can often be used at better than 1 cent per point value to book travel.  Even better, points can be strategically transferred to airline and hotel programs when valuable awards are available.  This page details all of the point transfers available from a number of bank programs as well as from Marriott Bonvoy. If you prefer spreadsheets, you can find…
