Ireland Ends Most Covid Restrictions:  The problem with traveling right now is not only jumping through hoops to enter a foreign country, but abiding by any restrictions within the country.  This deters many from traveling.  Well Ireland has ended most of their strict Covid measures.

Why You Should Book Award Flights As One Way:  While it’s convenient to book your award flights as roundtrip, it could be smarter to book them as one way.  There are a few reasons listed in this article, but one is that it’s easier to change/cancel separate segments.

Buy Alaska Miles With A Bonus:  If you’re short on miles or are looking to save cash on a flight, buying miles can be an excellent option.  Buying miles for an award flight could be much cheaper than purchasing the flight cash.  Alaska Mileage Plan is currently offering a pretty nice bonus on purchased miles.

New Marriott Promotion:  The perfect storm is brewing to achieve elite status with Marriott.  Platinum status and above is awesome due to the perks you receive, however it’s tough to achieve.  With this new promotion, it’s easier than ever to get status!

Buy Aeroplan Points With A Bonus:  It seems like many airline loyalty programs are offering bonuses on purchased points.  Aeroplan is offering a pretty lucrative bonus of up to 100%!  Remember to crunch the numbers to make sure it’s a good deal for you!

Improvements With IHG Rewards Program:  Of all the major hotel loyalty programs, IHG ranks near the bottom.  They don’t offer the same perks as Hyatt, Marriott, Hilton, etc.  Then their free night certificates were capped which made things worse.  Well it seems they’re making some improvements to sway you to reconsider.
