Travel Cameras We Use at Million Mile Secrets

Being able to see new places and have new experiences is one of the main reasons folks love the miles & points hobby.  And when you’re traveling with friends and loved ones, it’s important to capture those memories!

The Million Mile Secrets team loves to travel, so I decided to share with y’all which travel cameras we use.  And don’t forget to check out our Instagram page for pictures of where we’ve recently been!

Just remember, the best camera is the one that’s with you.  Because it’s better to get a decent photo than no photo at all. 🙂

How to Add a Companion to Southwest Flights Booked Through a Travel Portal

Million Mile Secrets reader, Camilla, commented:

Can you book a Southwest flight through the Chase travel portal using Chase Ultimate Rewards points, and then add a companion if you have the Companion Pass?

Folks with the Companion Pass can add a companion to any Southwest flight.  It doesn’t matter if it’s booked directly through the airline or a travel portal!

This is good news for folks with the Companion Pass looking to get Big Travel on Southwest with the Chase Sapphire Reserve.  Because points linked to your Sapphire Reserve account are worth 1.5 cents each when you book travel through Chase.

Or those using the Pay With Points perk with the The Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN.
