Caution: Marriott Bonvoy App Used My Points Instead of My Free Night Certificate – Travel With Grant

I am glad AwardWallet alerted Grant to the booking.  Be cautious if doing it via the app.  It is always best to use certificates first since they have expiration dates.  Well unless you want lounge access with Hyatt.

JetBlue Reduces Compensation For Delays – Doctor of Credit

While they are one of the few US airlines (at least that I am aware of) that have terms for compensation for delays it is sad to see them lower the payouts.  I wish we would instill laws for all carriers like Canada and the EU have.

Fedex 2-Day rates on Ebay is as cheap or cheaper than USPS Priority mail now – Miles Per Day

Interesting to see this.  I would be hesitant to do it with the reports of Fedex changing the weight of items after the fact and billing you more.
