A Stopover in Vibrant Hong Kong: Part 3 – Our Room at the InterContinental Hong Kong

Daraius and I took my parents on an around-the-world trip to the MaldivesIndia, and Hong Kong.  My step-dad, Mark, had never been outside the US, and my mom had only been to India.

We had a free stopover in Hong Kong with our Cathay Pacific flight back to the US.

Daraius and I thought it would be a great experience for them to see Hong Kong because it’s such a dynamic city!  It’s also very different from both India and the Maldives.

I Got 5 Alaska Airlines Cards on the Same Day!

At Frequent Traveler University Dallas, readers asked how many Bank of America cards you can get at ONE time.

Bank of America is known for approving folks for more than 1 of the same card, even if they still have an account open.  And Frequent Miler experimented with the Bank of America Virgin Atlantic card and was able to get FOUR applications approved on the same day!

I love a challenge!  So I decided to see how many Bank of America Alaska Airlines personal cards I could get at the same time.  I conferred with Rapid Travel Chai, who knows a LOT about credit cards, and decided to test the glaciers.

Note:   You could get a better offer for the Bank of America Alaska Airlines card by making a test booking on the Alaska Airlines site.  I applied before this deal was available, so I can NOT guarantee it works multiple times.

Remember, if you’re new to miles & points, it’s best to start slowly, so this method isn’t for everyone.
