You Can Use Starwood Points for ANY Flight, but Should You?

One of my favorite uses of Starwood points is transferring them to airline partners for award flights.  Because you get 5,000 bonus miles for every 20,000 Starwood points you transfer.

But with SPG Flights, you can use Starwood points for paid tickets on 150+ airlines with NO blackout dates?

This perk can be useful for folks who don’t have a lot of flexibility in scheduling, can’t find award seats, or want cheap paid tickets.

I’ll explain the details of the SPG Flights program.  And help you decide whether it makes sense for your particular situation!

Everything to Know About TSA PreCheck

If you enjoy standing in long lines, removing items from your carry-on, or pulling off your coat in record speeds, this post is not for you!

For the rest of us, TSA PreCheck can be a huge time (and stress!) saver during our visit to the airport.  A membership to TSA PreCheck means you won’t have to remove your toiletries or computer from your bag.  Or take off your jacket at security checkpoints.

And TSA PreCheck lines are often (but not always!) much shorter than the regular security lines.
