Fly to Tahiti in United Business Class for 120,000 Miles – The Lazy Traveler’s Handbook

This is a popular route that is near impossible to find availability for in business class.  Andy shows you a good way to book the flights using alliances.

Hilton Diamond staus: more like cubic zirconia, amirite? Windbag Miles
I have had a similar experience with Hilton Gold vs Diamond.  It doesn’t seem to be a huge difference although I do love those Diamond parking spots at Hampton Inns lol.  I am coming up on a similar decision on my Aspire card in a few months as well.  As you know I love the card but I am not sure if I will use the resort credit next year which is make or break on the card’s value in my opinion.  I may downgrade to the Ascend, which I also love, and await a compelling Aspire upgrade offer.  Time will tell.
Amazon closed my account because of a high gift card balance – Miles per Day
Google Class Action Says Company Tracks Location of Users Who Opt-Out – Top Class Actions

This seems to be happening much too often.  It is very similar to all the hacks that happen and no one seems to think too much of it.
