Best of Miles to Memories 8/22/16/-8/28/16
Welcome to the weekly “Best of Miles to Memories” recap series. Here you will find links to all of the still relevant posts from the past week. This week started with the Sapphire Reserve and I covered much of the new info we learned, but it continued with a lot of other topics including the US Bank FlexPerks promo, buying Visa gift cards with Ink and having a spending exit strategy.
To make the posts in this recap easier to wade through, my “Editor’s Picks” in each section are in bold. If you have questions about anything you read feel free to contact me anytime. Enjoy!
