A couple of months ago, I told you that Alaska Airlines would be adding Condor to their list of partner airlines.
And now, via Travel Codex, you can use your Alaska Airlines miles for flights on Condor! I like this news, because more options for using miles & points is always a good thing! And it’s nice for folks who already fly Condor, because it does NOT have its own loyalty program.
Fly To Many Destinations Across the Atlantic With Condor, Like Lisbon!
I’ll share what you need to know about redeeming Alaska Airlines miles on Condor.
If you’re like most folks, you like to plan your holiday travel as soon as possible. That’s because prices can increase if you wait to book!
Southwest has extended their schedule through January 7, 2018. So you can now book your Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years flights! Or just reserve a flight to a balmy climate away from the cold.

Plus, if you have the Southwest Companion Pass, a friend or family member can join you for (almost) free anytime you fly Southwest for up to 2 years!
You Can Now Book Southwest Flights for Christmas and Beyond!
I’ll share the details about Southwest’s extended schedule.

Have you been considering the Chase Sapphire Reserve? You might want to apply soon if you’d hoped to make the most of the $300 annual travel credit.
Via Travel After Work, Chase has changed when you’re eligible for the annual $300 travel credit. Starting May 21, 2017, new applicants will receive their $300 travel credit after each cardmember anniversary, instead of each calendar year.
The Chase Sapphire Reserve $300 Annual Travel Credit Can Be Used for Nearly ANY Travel Purchase, From Hotels and Flights to Taxis and Uber!
I’ll explain how this will affect new cardholders!
The time of year you choose to vacation usually affects the prices you’ll pay and your travel experience.
Busy seasons (like holidays) can attract lots of tourists to popular destinations. I typically prefer traveling in low or shoulder season when things are quieter and cheaper!
But some folks would rather book a getaway during peak season to enjoy the best weather. Or because it works best for family vacation schedules.
Emily Traveled to the British Virgin Islands During High Season Because of the Ideal Weather. And She Booked a Marriott Award Stay, Which Costs the Same Amount of Points Regardless of Season!
I’ll share the pros and cons of traveling to a destination during its high season, shoulder season, and off-season.
