Hilton Drops Same Day Cancellation Policy

Confused About Timing Your Spending for the Southwest Companion Pass?

Readers have emailed and commented asking how to time their minimum spending on the Chase Southwest cards to earn the Southwest Companion Pass.

Get Bonus Miles and Points With These Limited Time Offers!

Oh boy!  There are a lot of bonus offers right now.  If you need a few extra points to top-off your hotel or airline frequent traveler accounts, there are some limited time offers you should know about!

Others, like Southwest’s 40% bonus, are only worthwhile if you’re short on points for an award.

You’ll get a bonus or discount when you buy miles or points from:
