American express gift card balance
The Delta SkyMiles American Express credit cards contain some excellent perks for loyal Delta fliers — and living in the Delta hub of Minneapolis-St. Paul, that’s a lot of us. But the cards’ reward-earning rates just haven’t been that impressive compared with other premium travel credit cards out there, even some no-annual-fee cash-back cards. Now, with a host of new benefits announced Monday, the Delta-Amex SkyMiles cards are more competitive, and one just could become your primary plastic. The changes, which take effect on Jan. 30, are spelled out at NewDeltaAmex.com. To celebrate, Delta has rolled out expanded welcome bonuses in October of up to 75,000 miles. The mid-level Delta SkyMiles Gold card will become a much stronger card if much of your spending is on dining and groceries. The SkyMiles you earn on those purchases will double from 1 per dollar spent to 2. You’ll still get 2 miles per dollar on Delta purchases. The gold card’s annual fee … [Read more...] about Delta’s SkyMiles credit cards just became a lot more rewarding
Updated 5:04 pm CDT, Tuesday, October 8, 2019 LAS VEGAS (AP) — The government agency that promotes Las Vegas tourism is banning members from accepting gifts and tightening restrictions on travel. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority board voted Tuesday to tighten ethics rules following the arrest of three former agency executives, including its retired chief executive, Rossi Ralenkotter. Ralenkotter and the executives are accused of theft of $90,000 in airline gift cards purchased with tax dollars between 2012 and 2017. The board includes eight local elected officials and six business and casino executives. It oversees an agency with a $251 million annual operating budget, funded mostly with hotel room taxes. Board Chairman Larry Brown says that from now on, the board and the agency executive have to sign off on agency travel spending. ___ Information from: Las Vegas Review-Journal, http://www.lvrj.com … [Read more...] about Las Vegas tourist agency adopts new rules on gifts, travel
News : Travel Related: American Airlines I have a childish palate when it comes to my taste in food. While I think that one of the more recent additions to the American Airline’s First Class menu is horrific, I explain more here, the AA warm cookies win my heart. The scent in the cabin is wonderful as they’re heated up, the satisfying sweet crunch is delicious. Being British, I find that a cookie (or biscuit) goes extremely well with my cup of tea. American Airlines has, however, changed their supplier and View From The Wing reports that these new cookies are less gooey but too sweet: The new cookie is “a little less gooey than the last cookie which is actually a good thing. It didn’t disintegrate picking it up. That said I didn’t love the consistency, and it was too sweet for my taste. I’d prefer it to be paired with something to give it better balance.” While we’re not talking about the introduction of a new high-end champagne or a … [Read more...] about Is New American Airlines First Class Cookie Good Or Bad?
The treehouse in Sweden looked divine: a spherical flying saucer twinkling from a snow-coated pine forest. On the property's slick website, meals were cast as "Swedish delicacies" and adventures such as dog-sledding and dinner in an ice hut looked dreamy. The destination had been reviewed glowingly by the Guardian, Travel + Leisure and Architectural Digest. This, and the hotel's listing on the boutique hotel booking site Mr. & Mrs. Smith, convinced me that this remote spot near the Arctic Circle would make a thrilling vacation for my family of four. Boy, was I wrong. We had booked the property's newest treehouse, slated to be complete in time for our December visit. It wasn't. Since flights were paid for, we opted for the property's guesthouse. When we turned up, my heart sank. The guesthouse was a timeworn hostel tricked out with 1930s-era lingerie and dusty vintage shoes. The low-rent boudoir theme extended to our rooms: peeling wallpaper, musty curtains and ancient table lamps … [Read more...] about Learn how to pivot from a bad travel situation
