1.   Blog Migration.   The blog migration is complete, and thanks for your patience.  If you get an error message or if links are broken, try clearing your cache.

Hopefully the blog should load faster and have less downtime.  So come on over whenever Boarding Area is down.  I kid, I kid!  I dislike it as much as anyone when Boarding Area is down.

I’ve also updated the links to the better Chase Ink offers in the Hot Deals, Bank Points Credit Card  and Business Credit Cards tabs.  I should get affiliate links to the better Chase offers during the afternoon/evening on November 13th.

Folks reported more luck with calling the number at the back of their Ink card and asking Chase to match the lower spending requirement than with sending a secure message.

2.   20% Fewer United Miles to Europe.   Pay 20% less United miles for coach award tickets to Europe if you book them before November 15, 2012 for travel between January 15 and March 13, 2012.  This means that you pay only 48,000 miles for return trip to Europe versus the regular 60,000 miles.

However, as MileValue points out, American Airlines and US Air have regular off peak awards for less miles than the discounted United awards.

3.   5% off American Airlines Tickets.   The Flight Deal points to a 5% discount on paid (not using miles) tickets on American Airlines.  The discount is valid on flights up to December 31, 2012 and INCLUDES travel during the holidays with no blackout dates!
