700 Alaska Miles for $1? You Bet!(Targeted)

Written by The Military Frequent Flyer @ BoardingArea

I received an email from Mileage Plan Shopping yesterday with a great, no-brainer offer.  Earn 700 Alaska miles which are usually valued at 2.0 cents each if you subscribe to 2 months of the Wall Street Journal for only $1. I personally think very highly of the WSJ, so the 700 miles seem like icing […]

Budapest: A Nice Walk to A Castle

Written by The Military Frequent Flyer @ BoardingArea

Hotel Review: Ritz-Carlton Budapest

Written by The Military Frequent Flyer @ BoardingArea

I had three free night certificates burning a hole in my pocket.  They came from getting the sign-up bonus from the Chase Ritz-Carlton credit card and would expire in mid Sept.  Ritz-Carlton nights are not to be spent unwisely, unlike the free nights from Marriott or Hyatt where the category level was limited.  I plotted […]

Received a very enticing email today for American: 10,000 miles per night?  Yes, please!  However, when checking out the details it was not quite so lucrative.  I checked for a trip to Honolulu that we are planning for January.  The Booking.com site lists the number of miles earned depending on the hotel.  Here is an […]

Hotel Review: Budapest’s Boscolo Hotel

Written by The Military Frequent Flyer @ BoardingArea

While it would be great to stay in the fictional Grand Budapest Hotel, I had to settle for a close second with a stay at the Boscolo Hotel in downtown Budapest.  This hotel is part of the Autograph Collection from Marriott.  The motto of the autograph Collection is that every property is unique (just like […]

My Submission for Pic of the Year

Written by The Military Frequent Flyer @ BoardingArea

Life is very strange and sometimes you just happen on the oddest things.  I walked up to my EWR-MUC United flight on Sunday and looked out the window to see this: What are the odds that I would look out just as the pilot decides to remove that bug splatter from the last landing?  I […]
