Some of you may have noticed a reduced quantity of posts in the last several weeks. The reasons for that: multiple viruses sweeping through the household, a bad back… and a family get-together, courtesy of Ultimate Rewards and Avios! My wife comes from Nicaragua, and since we have four kids and each of her two siblings has three, it’s expensive to get everybody together.
Solution: combine Avios earned from the British Airways card and Ultimate Rewards transferred to Avios to fly her brother and his family up! Plus a few more UR points transferred to Hyatt so they can stay a night in Miami on each end of the trip. Plus a bunch of Club Carlson points for an overnight trip to Columbia, SC (who needs Radission Blu when you can stay at the Columbia Airport Country Inn & Suites?) so we could visit the Riverbanks Zoo and Gardens. We’ll hopefully be able to do a similar trip for Mrs. PFD’s sister and her family this summer.
And that, my friends, is one reason why I like credit cards.
