Via Frequent Miler, you can fly coach from LOTS of US cities (big and small!) to Europe for ~$530+, with this huge Delta sale.

Considering a Disney Dream Cruise? Read This First!

Ken and his wife Emily write about using points and miles (and saving money) on Disney trips at Mousehacking.com.  So I’ve asked them to share their tips on taking a cruise aboard the Disney Dream!

Ken and Emily:   While many people think first of Disneyland or Walt Disney World when considering a Disney vacation, Disney Cruise Line is an excellent option as well.

Even if you’ve been on a cruise before, a Disney cruise is extra special.  We’ll be focusing on the Disney Dream, but Disney has 3 other ships, all among the best in the world.

Negative Changes to the Chase Hyatt Card!

Via One Mile at a Time, the sign-up bonus on the Chase Hyatt card is changing.  And I suspect lots of folks won’t be happy with the change.

On June 29, 2017 (in just a few days!), you’ll NO longer earn 2 free nights at any Hyatt after meeting minimum spending requirements.  Instead, the card will come with a 40,000 Hyatt point sign-up bonus after spending $2,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of opening your account.

Review: Capital One Quicksilver & QuicksilverOne

If you’re looking for a card with a straightforward back structure, low to no annual fees, and no foreign transaction fees, the Capital One Quicksilver cards could be worth considering.

Both cards come with unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase.  But the right card for you depends on whether you’re trying to build or improve your credit, or if you already have a good score and an established credit history.

That said, these aren’t the best cards for folks new to miles & points.  I’ll explain why.
