Hilton Launches Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi For 120,000 Points Per Night, New Highest ‘Category’ – Doctor of Credit

It is the Maldives I get it, it is going to be expensive.  But that isn’t the issue the issue is that there is a new category.  Hotel chains don’t make a new category and only leave 1 hotel in it.  At some point others will be moved into it.  I expect something similar with Hyatt’s category 8.

American Airlines debuts new amenity kits, I’m giving some away! – Andy’s Travel Blog

I know the readers love their amenity kits.  These look pretty cool and you can win one before they are released.

Hacked Amazon gift cards at Safeway – Miles Per Day

Southwest’s Plan to Launch Flights to Hawaii Could Start a Fare War to the Aloha State – Fortune

Southwest needs this expansion to be successful and they will do what it takes to win some market share.  This will cause others to lower their prices as well.  Competition is good for consumers!  Hopefully you were able to snag one of those companion pass deals for upcoming Hawaii travels.
