Miles to Go - Travel Tips, News & Reviews You Can't Afford to Miss!

Aug 8, 2018

The big SPG/Marriott merger is almost upon us and there’s still a lot of unknowns about how it will all shake out. Richard from Award Travel 101 joins Ed this week to tackle some of the updates regarding sign up bonuses for both the new co-branded Amex and Chase credit cards. If you currently have either of the existing cards in your wallet, you’re gonna want to listen up! Jen from Deals We Like fills us in on how Hilton Honors members can score tickets to some great concerts for less points than you’d think. We cap off the episode with Dominic of The Short Final who shares some valuable lessons he learned trying to pay for gas to fill up his rental car in Europe. It’s more complicated that you’d think!
