Our Responsibility: How We Are Changing Our Coverage of Deals Due to Coronavirus

How We Are Changing Our Coverage Due to Coronavirus

Earlier I wrote about how I made the painful decision to cancel my family’s travels for the foreseeable future. That included a bucket list stay at Disney’s Aulani in Hawaii for my birthday and a European road trip plus other travels we had planned before Ellie begins Kindergarten. It sucks, but it is the right thing to do.

Don’t Be A Jerk! Why I Have Decided To Cancel Months Worth of Travel

How We Plan to Change Our Coverage Due to Coronavirus

On Miles to Memories we cover a wide range of content & news about miles, points, travel, credit and deals. We still plan to cover all of that from the confines of our homes during this social distancing period, however we have decided it is socially responsible for us to eliminate coverage of some types of deals.

In an effort to be responsible about what we report, we will temporarily suspend our coverage of the following types of deals:

  • Near term travel deals – We strongly feel people should reconsider travel during this period, so we don’t plan to share travel or airfare deals for travel taking place during the next couple of months.
  • In-store deals – We often cover in-store gift card or other offers. During this period of time where we should all be limiting our exposure, we will not be covering near term in-store gift card deals. If a deal has an online element, we will continue to cover it. We have to get our points somewhere right?!?!

While we will be covering less short term in-person deals, we will try to bring you even more of the in-depth reviews and miles/points guides that you love. Hopefully at the end of this you will all be better informed and ready to spring into action once we all get back out into the world again.

And believe me, we cannot wait to cover all of the amazing deals that we are going to find on the other end of all of this! 🙂

  1. Thank u! this is really cool and a very stark contrast to a lot of the flight deal accounts out there with twitter alerts like “buy now! $97 flights to Puerto Rico!”

  2. Thank you for being a shining example. My husband and I still have plans to visit northern Italy in October. I’m probably going to have to cancel. I’ve paid with most of it with points. Do you have any information about if the credit card companies are being sympathetic and reimbursing your points if you have to cancel a trip?

    • I would hold off on canceling since that is still a ways out. And if it doesn’t improve by then I would wait until that is included in the free cancellation time period that would likely be pushed out till then. I would like to think we would be traveling normally by October or at least I hope so.

  3. Wow!! What a thoughtful response to corona! You should be commended for this stance at this very scary time in a pandemic.
